If it is getting very hot and then turning off , it is most likely overheating....When the computer gets too hot it shuts itself off automatically. Here is what I recommend:

Get a can of compressed air or a small computer vacuum and remove the dust from the fan that is visible on the bottom of the computer. Also be sure to notice if that fan is properly running. If it is not running at all, you definitly want to get that replaced! After cleaning it out , try and run it again, if it is still shutting down , take it to a computer shop.

It could be something simple such as a dead fan or some large dust build up, but if you have never taken a laptop apart , you don't want to mess with it!

Sony vaio pcg 7A2L no screen/ display


It may be that the flexible print from board to screen is damaged.
The solution is more labour intensive. Perhaps the contacts are not pushed in right, that's easier to fix. Good luck.

Sony vaio model pcg-61611L it turns on for 4 seconds and then it turns off using the ac adapter . help please


The charger may be bad, will it charge the battery? a common problem is the DC jack in the laptop breaks connection on the motherboard internittent operation or no power and shut down. If you can sub the charger that will tell if the power supply is bad or the problem is in the laptop. If the computer is the issue I recommend a professional because it will require extensive parts removal.

My sony vaio pcg-k33 shuts off by itself when i turn it on. i think its the video card cause the fan turns on and stays on when i turn the latop on. so maybe its over heating. Please help


Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Buy a can of compressed-air, and give your computer a "blow-job", because a layer of dust inside your computer is blocking your heat-radiators, and thus is causing your computer to overheat.
