I have had this Sony Vaio laptop since last wednesday 9th Jan and it only charges to 80% then stops.
Any ideas?

If it's only a week old then take it back and ask for a replacement.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Agreed. It could be Battery, Charging cord, or Charging Circuit in laptop. Take or send it back for a replacement.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Check to see if Sony has a program running that limits battery charging to 80%...these utilities are used by some manufacturers to supposedly increase battery life.

If so, you should be able to change settings to allow 100% charge.

Worth a look...
