6 months is about right for the fan to become clogged and need re-cleaning. You could try the basics, which is:
1) Don't operate the laptop on your lap.
2) Ensure the vents are kept clear at all times
3) From time to time, simply blow into the vent holes to dislodge any dust.
4) If you can, use a laptop cooler to keep the temperature down in the laptop.

Sorry, I know overheating laptops are a pain, but it sounds like you are already doing as much as you can to reduce/stop/fix this.

We have a Sony Vaio PCG-7Q1L at home, since few years. It has started to present frequent freezing, likely due to overheating. As we turn it off for few hours, and turn it back on, it works fine until this...


If the problem is truly overheating, then your fix is better cooling.
Usually the cause of overheating on a laptop is that the ventilation slots are clogged with dust so in most cases, just taking a can of compressed air and using it to blow the dust out of all the slots can be enough to restore proper ventilation to your machine. You should be able to pick up a can at any electronics or department store. Use it to blow out all the slots on the side and the bottom of your machine. Make sure to pay special attention to those slots that have a fan attached.
If that doesn't work and you still suspect that it's because it's overheating, you can look into buying cooling trays specifically made for laptops. Something like this: http://www.everythingusb.com/belkin_laptop_cooling_pad_13845.html
Hope that helps.

i think you need to reformat and reinstall the OS on the machine to fix the problem. Some internal data is corrupt and does contribute to the failure of turning off and turning on.

Overheating for sony vaio vgn-bx546b


Hi,

Make sure that the laptop is on a hard surface. If it is on a bed or on your lap, it will get hot because the fans are being blocked up and the hot air can not escape. I hope I helped.

It could be that the laptop disables it's battery when you connect it with the power supply. When the power supply then fails it won't have enough time to switch back to battery. You'd best first try another power supply, and post back here if that doesn't help.
