Question about Sony Computers & Internet
I have a sony vaio model-r505el. after 10-15 minutes of use, it turns off by itself. even if i plug it from the wall outlet, it still turns of on me.
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: http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2006/01/04/toshiba-laptop-overheating/
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.
