Question about Sony Vaio PCG-FXA Series AMD (A8058677A) Motherboard
It could be a number of things , could be overheating , could also be shorting out....
For the overheating: When you have the motherboard in and the PC runinng make sure all of the fans are running correctly.One scenario is dust, fans tend to run slower or even stop if there is a heavy buildup on them. Also make sure there are enough fans. Should at least have one fan over the processor , and one on the back of the case. Try not keeping the computer in enclosed spot's like in a cabinet in a desk....the more open the area the better....There is actually a neat little program called "SpeedFan" , its free and it monitors and displays the temps of your computer, may want to download that.
I know you said you were an amateur , but maybee ask the person installing the board. They want to make sure that the motherboard isn't directly touching on the bottom of the case , or even having a screw that fell underneath it...all of this could cause a short circuit and of course fry your motherboard.
