    You definitely have a bad fan. Have it repaired. If you don't, your system board and /or the processor will fail.

Overheating is a common problem with laptops, and usually a bit of preventative maintenance is all it takes to keep it alive. The bearings on those fans are pretty durable, however dust (and especially pet hair) can build up and slow it down. The motor may still be good, its just that the fan blades are stuck.

Blow some air in the vent OPPOSITE the direction of normal air flow (In most cases it sucks from the bottom and blows out the back/side) and if you see dust bunnies, your doing good. Be THROUGH! Especially if you smoke in your house, this causes the dust to become brown and sticky. = )
Good Luck!

Overheating
When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

I have sony vaio pcg-81114L laptop.but now its getting stuck?


Stuck?

If you mean while working and just freeze (and before never did, none new software or hardware installed), the problem would be with the cooling and the CPU overheats.

Try using compressed air or just blow at the air vent opening (install RM clock management to check the CPU temperature)

Need a manual for Sony Vaio model PCG-632L


I have this laptop (the PCG-632L). My laptop shiped with the "Vaio Notebook Quick Start" manual for the "PCG-R505 series". You could seach the Internet for this manual instead of the "PCG-632L" manual. The manual says "quick start," but it goes into slightly more detail than the average "quick start" manual (such as changing RAM).

I have a Sony Vaio Model PCG-5J2L. Lately, the fan has been really loud, and the bottom of the laptop has been heating up and it is VERY HOT. Also, the other day, it just shut down by itself while I...


That recall is for VPCF11 and VPCCW2 models. Your issue definitely sounds like a heat problem. Sometimes it can be a buildup of dust, fuzz, carpet etc especially if you use it on a bed or the floor. Check all the vents and make sure they are clear. If the fan is making abnormally loud noises, slight grinding it could be failing. Here is one, retails for about 35 dollars. Make sure you get one with a heatsink, better safe then sorry. It is not too difficult to replace, but if you are not comfortable doing it then it is best to take it to a computer repair store.

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.
