No its not good, sooner or later your cpu will burn up. It may be working and you may not notice anything but the cpu is getting overheated.
I sugest you get that fan replaced AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Good luck to you

How can i tell if the fan on my vaio CS31S isnt working properly? It seems to speed up and down and the laptop shuts down? Is it te fan or could there be another reason for this shutdown? :-)


Try blowing out any dust from around the fan with compressed air. If the fan is turning on and off a lot, this could be normal, depending on your processor, but if the system just shuts down fully and randomly, it would be a heat issue. The CPU is overheating and the failsafe mechanism is to instantly shut your computer down. The only way to avoid this is to raise the CPU shutdown temp in the BIOS settings, or if you can access the CPU, remove it and apply new, quality thermal grease. Also, ensure the fan is operating correctly during use and dont block any air intake or exhaust ports.

Hi i have sony vaio vgn-cs11s laptop ,i vd some problem vd my laptop its goning heat and then automatic power off.plz tell me how can i sloed this problem...


When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (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 this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

Buy a can of compressed air, a can of fine mechanisms oil, take the bottom cover off the laptop (only a Phillips screwdriver is needed) and clean and oil the fan.

My sony is over heating


This is almost certainly a hardware fault - the fan will need to be replaced. This is a job you can do yourself if you are comfortable disassembling the laptop. Otherwise I suggest to take it to a repair centre.

CPU FAN noise is loud for sony VAIO lapto CR16S


First, ake all the Dust out. I use canned compressed air. You want to blow into the vents and into the computer. You are trying to loosen the dust and if possible get it out of the vents. Next, attempt to **** out all the loose dust via a vacuum cleaner.

Dust inhibits air flow, alot!

Does sony vaio need GPU cooling


No if your surfing, e-mailing, or word processing. Maybe if your gaming, video editing, or intense graphic designing.

My sony vaio VGN-CS11S is soo noisy


The fan's bearings are probably going bad, or there may be some object that was sucked in to cause the noise.

Sony TZ240n problem.


If less than 90 days, it is under Sony's full coverage. Usually the fan runs intermitantly. Check that air paths are not restricted.
