I bought my laptop to my friends house the other day and when I opened
it up it said preparing to hibernate.  Then the screen went black as
usual and when I tried to use it nothing happened.  I turned the
computer off and back on and the computer gets power, but just sits
there with the screen black and  the caps lock, scroll lock and num
luck lights all lit up.  I can't even get to the VIAO screen to start
safe mode or any of that.  Anyone have any ideas on how I can remedy
this problem?

Try holding the power button down for maybe 15 seconds with the battery
removed and no AC adapter connected.  Then attach the AC adapter only,
leaving the battery out.

What model is this?  The model number is *not* the stock code on the
serial number sticker on the bottom - it is the model shown on the lower
margin of the LCD or the upper left margin on the keyboard surface.

Well, I just tried that and it didn't work.  I got the same blank
screen.  The model number is VGN-FS840/W.  I hope that helps :)
