    My Sony laptop was killed at work, I'm not exactly sure what killed it
    but I suspect mains-like voltages being fed into its USB port didn't do
    it a world of good :-(

    I've read a few stories about Sony only authorising very few places to
    repair their gear, and that its likely that they won't supply parts
    outside this "dealer network", also a lot of worrying stories about
    people having to wait months for parts required for repair.

    If all thats true should I just take it to my local Sony Center, bend
    over and lube up?

    Or if there are good independant places that can fix it, anyone know of
    any that are decent, reliable, quick turnaround and give you a good
    warranty?

    I've been trying to get a Vaio with a smashed screen fixed today.

    claims to fix them but I'm waiting for a reply on cost.
    Sony want £484+VAT to repair it.

    frag () gurgled happily, sounding much like they were
    saying :
    No, it wouldn't...
    We had a customer's Sony Vile repaired (case bits, keyboard & a few other
    odds & sods) by http://www.laptopsrepair.co.uk - usual disclaimers apply.

    Can't recommend www.ologic.co.uk enough.

    I ended up using them - £120+VAT and it works.

    Thanks for the tip
