Question about Sony VAIO VGC-JS160J/S 20.1-Inch All-in-one PC
Regarding the blank screen, your monitor is most likely faulty - I'm assuming an LCD screen, in which case the backlight is failing, possibly the tubes or the the inverters.
Regarding the fans, you may have pulled the fan leads out of their connectors on the motherboard. Check to see if the CPU fan spins while the computer is switched on.

I would suggest first to try to take one stick of memory out and try to boot up the pc. Sometimes, one or both of the memory sticks can go bad or the memory slot on the motherboard itself can go bad. If that is not the case I would then remove all of the usb connected to the computer and last i would test the power supply.

sounds like you have a heating problem I need More information to help you, try pulling the side off the pc and blow off the cpu fan with compressed air for a computer store also blow out the monitor as best you can, next start up the computer but go into safe mode by pressing F8 before windows loads load without networking if it works there and does not turn off you have a driver problem after performing the first two suggestions if it stays on reboot hit F8 again before windows loads and click load in safe mode with networking then go to Microsoft's help page it's http://www.microsoft.safety.clean and run their cleaner if it detects a bug remove them then go to microsoft support and download the latest drivers next defrag the computer in safe mode then go to www.drivers.com and run scan for driver updates there it will give you a list of out of date drivers for your entire computer save the screen in word by using the ctrl V and ctrl p and then reboot normally and if windows stays on go to the driver site and down load all the latest drivers, next go to male-ware bytes and download their free trial software and run a scan on your computer. The latest virus has did ansi bombs with Delaware and worms and has killed your monitor drivers once you run the male-ware and remove the virus's and worms reboot to safe mode do disk cleanup and then do disk defrag in safe mode. good luck.
