This may be caused by processoroverheating.

It's possible the heat sink is clogged with dust and has to be cleaned.You can clean the heat sink with compressed air, blow off the heat sinkthrough the grill on the bottom of your laptops. Some people usevacuums for removing dust from the heat sink. Or you can open the laptop case to clean the heatsink:

Alternately, click delete, F1, or F10 when your computer starts to gointo your BIOS and look for PC Health > Temperature (or similar).This should show you the current temperature of the computer andthe emergency shutdown temperature. The emergency shutdown temperatureis a safeguard that shuts your computer down to prevent damage when it gets to hot. If this setting shows that your processor is too hot, you should consider replacing the fan. Or you can either raise the shutdown temperature or switch it off completely, however be warned that you may damage your computer if the computer gets too hot.

Often, if a system turns off every time at roughly the same time, it's a hardware problem. System gets too hot, shuts down, restart it and it'll run again for a while, but not quite as long, and continue like that. Can you feel/hear the fan moving air? Possibly clogged, see what you can do to get it cleaned up a bit. Does it make any difference what surface it's on? May be covering a vent on the bottom or back.

Try A Hard Reset

Remove the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord from your Sony Vaio laptop, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds to discharge any residual current inside the laptop.

This clears your RAM and is like a hardware reset.

Replace the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord
and turn your laptop on.

If that does't work try removing ram and reinstall. Sometime this works with these laptops.

Plugged it in to a wall outlet, turned on the computer, the microsoft screen scene appeared, the jingle played, then it turned itself off and won't turn back on.

Unassemble the battery and after 5 minutes reassemble it, then plug it in another wall outlet and when the charging light turn on, turn on the notebook.

My Sony Grand WEGA LCD rear projection 51" turns itself OFF every 20 sek and turns itself back ON after every 35 sek. ???

Try resetting the TV to the factory settings. Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.
