Does this model have a reset or battery off button?If so where is it?
My battery was initially charging to 100%, after a few months only to about 50%. last week back to 100%, now 2%.
The Sony Vaio PCG-7184L is part of the VGN-NW series, which was released in 2009 and comes in various colors. The laptop has a 15.5” (1366x768 resolution) display with an built-in webcam and a compact ten-keyless keyboard.
Kay Tate it has neither a reset nor a battery off button. this could be coming from your battery. These are “smart batteries “ that are actually doing some “communicating” with the logic board (very simplified). I suggest you start with a new battery.
