This sounds like your hard drive is going bad. I recommend getting a replacement and backing up anything important ASAP.

SOURCE: Sony Vaio aftermarket battery
i have the same problem with the aftermarket battery. my sony is VGN-S48GP which i have for 3 years.
there are a few posting about this on the web on how to solve them. some people are successful and some are not.
there is a .exe file call ISBmgr.exe which is contained in the start up sequence of windows XP, when the XP is installed with factory disk from sony. this programs checks the battery and does not allow non-sony battery to work with the notebook. i ask XP not to load this program and now i can use the battery.
THIS IS HOW:-
go to Run
look for startup tap
i like this method because the action is reversable. there are other posts on the web which ask you to delete the ISBmgr file. i did not choose that way.

I put my money on that you have a CPU over temperature problem, and/or intermittent RAM problem.
Be sure you are ESD safe when working on the electronics as follow !
I suggest, using a eye piece magnifier and a wooden tooth pick and carefully touch each pin of your RAM sockets and see if the soldering is bad, allowing the pin to move slightly. If that happens, well it needs re-soldering there, make sure you use leaded solder, not the ROHS crapp.
If that turns out to be ok, then check your processor. It might over heat.
You may want to observe if the CPU fans runs at all and if it runs at full speed most the time, even if you don't run any 'heavy' programs. This usually would indicate poor heat dissipation. Most Sony Laptops have a piece of thermal foam pad is used for heat transfer from the CPU chip into the heat sink. Over time this pad shrinks, effectively impeding the heat transfer causing the CPU to over heat and intermittent shutdowns ect. I suggest, find a new piece of thermal pad or replace that with a piece of copper sheet material and use Thermalloy transfer paste.
