The recalled notebook computer models are the VAIO VGN-TZ100 series, VGN-TZ200 series, VGN-TZ300 series and VGN-TZ2000 series. The computers’ screen size is about 11.1” measured diagonally. Not all units are affected; consumers should contact Sony to determine if their unit is included in the recall.
Sold by: The SonyStyle stores and Web site, authorized electronics retailers, and authorized business-to-business dealers nationwide from July 2007 through August 2008 for between $1,700 and $4,000.

Remedy: Consumers should stop using the recalled notebook computers immediately and contact Sony to determine if their notebook is affected. The firm will arrange for an inspection and repair, if needed.

Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact Sony toll-free at (888) 526-6219 anytime, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.sony.com/support

My sony laptop suddenly shut down itself when am playing a game. it shuts with a certain sound


Laptops are very often overheating, so it wouldn't be a surprise if you playing the game makes it even hotter and it just shuts down to protect itself from damage.
You can try using a cooling pad/fan or just make sure the laptop fans can circulate air freely.

My Sony VAIO has shutdown problem. when i do


i think you need to reformat and reinstall the OS on the machine to fix the problem. Some internal data is corrupt and does contribute to the failure of turning off and turning on.

Sony Vaio vgn-fs640w does not power up nor does it


I went to the Sony Vaio support site for your model specifically and they mention a battery recall. There is a place on the site requiring specific information about your system and your battery to see if you are eligible for the recall. I would try this route to see if it resolves your issue. If not, I would say it is a blown transistor and you need to replace the motherboard. This means buying a new system, as Sony VAIO laptops are very proprietary and hard to find parts for.

Good Luck,

Sony Vaio PCG-6h4l laptop turns off for no reason. While using laptop on batteries it works fine and does not power off while using. But while using with electricity the laptop turns off for no reason,...


It could be that the laptop disables it's battery when you connect it with the power supply. When the power supply then fails it won't have enough time to switch back to battery. You'd best first try another power supply, and post back here if that doesn't help.

Hi, I use the air cool product from www.pwx.cc that allows you to move the laptop constantly to prevent a hotspot on your desk. I think it may work for you.
