Hello I'm having a problem with my Sony VAIO model: vpcsc1afm. The issue is my battery has spotty performance. The computer runs perfect for when the battery is working but other times I will be using it and the battery light will start blinking and my computer will tell me that the battery isn't recognized (0% not charging). After the computer shuts down I can't turn it back on without taking out the battery and putting it back in. It's also happened when I was just charging it with the computer off. It will be charging and the battery light will start blinking and won't be able to turn on till I take out the battery and put it back in. I bought a brand new battery and it does the exact same thing as the original. I also completely re-installed windows and started fresh and it still is doing it. I'm thinking that maybe re-installing the BIOS will fix the problem. The bios is already updated so when I try to use the bios upgrade from Sony's website it just says the bios is up to date and won't install it. Does anyone know of a way to re-install the BIOS if there isn't an update for it?
