Question about Sony Vaio PCG-FXA Series AMD (A8058677A) Motherboard

1 Answer

3rd motherboard I got a Sony Vaio PKG-23 from my sister-in-law. She has already replaced the motherboard once. It is now on it's 3rd motherboard. Is there something that I am missing? Is there anything that is known to be wrong that I could fix being an amature computer guy? Could it be the temp? I've noticed this thing runs pretty hot on the bottom. Nic

    Thank you. I will definetly try the speedfan program.

    This is a laptop. I don't know if that helps or makes things different. I was the one who installed the recent motherboard. Everything seems to work fine now, but I don't want to loose this one as well.

    Is there any other ways to cool a laptop down more? There are only two fans in this one. One above the processor, and one out the back of the laptop.

    Do you know if there is anything specific with the Sony Vaio PCG-K23? Any flaws that are specific to this laptop?

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.

    There is definitely more you can do....since laptops are so condensed the always run slightly hotter then your average desktop. To correct that they came out with a piece of hardware known as a laptop is basically a mat with two fans on it that you lay under the laptop. It is also powered by USB to make thing easier.

    Here is an example:

    Also , of yOu are the one installing the motherboard , make sure that when you install it is not directly toucing the bottom or any other sort of metal on the bottom to short it out.

    As far as I know I have not heard anything about mass overheating issue's with that laptop.

    Hope that helps you out a bit , if you need anything else feel free to ask!

Is there a current motherboard that will fit in a Sony Vaio pcv-RZ22g case to replace an old Asus P4S533 motherboard?

Desktop computer cases have mountings that suit the majority of motherboards.
You most like need a new switch mode power supply as the existion one won't have the correct power connectors and won't supply enough power.

Baught a sony Vaio online but seller gave me the wrong personal password. I want to know if there is a way to bypass that? It is a Sony Vaio VGN-NR285E. Any Help will be greatly appreciated.

If it is a hard disk password, you will need to take it to a Sony repair shop or send it to Sony. If it is just a boot password, clearing the NVRAM should fix it.

Sony pcg 9h4l motherboard issue


Try to power off unit and remove the battery. Then press and hold power button for 30seconds.Put the battery back and turn it on. If it turns on turn it back off again and remove the battery. Connect your VAIO using the AC adapter only. If this will not resolve your issue you can check this with SONY or any certified service center.
