I reccomend going to youtube to look for a walkthrough. When you get to the fan, gently brush it.

SOURCE: Sony Vaio fan making noise

Hi:
Not sure of a user cause for the fan to run full speed, unless you are using the laptop in a high heat environment, or setting it on a bed or other area where it is not getting adequet cooling air. If it does it right away, when you turn it on , cold, then there might be a laptop hardware problem. If you leave your laptop on all the time, then you might be inducing the problem. I had a HP high performance laptop, that the fans would not turn on at all till it ran an hour or so, then they would stay on loud for 10 or 15 minutes, then shut off, then cycle.

SOURCE: sony vaio fan is making a grinding noise, how can

The sony VGN-S460 seems to have an inherent problem with their cpu fans. It is apparent that the fan uses a ball bearing system which over time becomes worn and causes the grinding sound.

The only solution is to replace the entire fan assembly as they are inseparable.

SOURCE: the fan of my sony vaio model pcg 3c2l stops

Only do this if you feel competent in doing so.

Pulling apart laptops is not for the faint of heart.

If you really must do it there are some
good guides here
.

An alternative is to get a can of compressed air used to clean computers. Put the nozzle on and spray it in every hole you can see without putting the nozzle itself inside the laptop.

Do this outside with glasses on.

You may also want to remove the hard drive and ROM drive.

Take a
peek here for more ideas of what is involved.

There are a few are tips for various things in there.

DON'T touch the CPU cooler unless you know what you are doing and have some thermal grease for CPUs to hand.

To make newer laptops last longer between cleaning a good 3 fan cooling pad is suggested.
never use a laptop on soft surfaces as the ventilation can act as a mini vacuum cleaner and encourage dirt build up.
Soft surfaces also block the vents causing fans to run more and burn out sooner.
Hope this gives you the information you need

Why does it get so hot? It's even made the seams on my oak table split. It has been cleaned, but still gets hotter than any other laptop I've seen


Sometimes just blowing the dust out with a can of air is not enough. You need to remove the fan to get to the heat sink to remove the dust properly.

My Sony PCG K45 Laptops cooling fan runs continiusly after just a few minutes of powering up the system Why is this as it is not normal


This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

My sony vaio shuts down quite frequently ...it started after i got repaired for a monitor problem from vaio service centre..they replaced the mother board it seems....does it have anything to do with that?

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard.

Sony Vaio K33; the fan seems to run all of the time, hot and nois


i had the same problem with my vaio.

when disassembling the notebook: after you remove the metal cover under the keyboard, you'll see three areas covered with black thermal tape. peel back the thermal tape and you should see tightly packed dust buildups in those areas. use a q-tip and vacuum if you can or air duster. be sure to clean the fans as well as the heatsink assembly.

once that is done, your noise level should be reduced by about 60-70%.

if you're still running hot, consider cleaning the old thermal grease off your processor and reapplying a new layer.

My Sony Vaio laptop makes a lot of noise mostly it seems from the fan. This is intermittent but seems to happen when I have had the laptop on for a long time. What might be causing this and is this serious...


Your processor is probably getting too hot. When it gets hot, the fan speed will increase. You will heed to have the processor heat sink checked, cleaned, and new thermal paste applied to it. You will also need to clean your cooling fans if they are dirty.
