Question about Sony VAIO SVE1511MFXS 15.5" Notebook PC - Aluminum Silver
My laptop suddenly hangs while I am working with it. The only thing I can do is turning off & on it and the CPU fan starts to run. In your opinion what the problem could be ?

i can get you an advice, a basic advice for you as a user......you can buy in the market such a USB cooling fan...a lot of design in the market...you can check, i think that's the best solution for you.....
but you can check first the processor fun of your laptop cause maybe its not working,it will become hot..and it will shutdown your laptop.be advised you to check first your processor fan..if it is working then you need to buy a USB cooling fan..

You are correct and you are correct. The copper tubing is part of the cooling system and are referred to as heat pipes because they transport heat from the processor to the fan and cooling fin area.
The laptop is shutting down from overheating. Now usually this is caused by the fins getting plugged up with lint and dust. Sometimes this lint/dust/hair buildup can get thick enough that if you try to blow it out it can jam up the cooling fan.
Now if the fan has seized due to bearing failure then it is a bit more complicated and expensive then if it was just plugged cooling fins.
Technically you will have to order a new cooling fan and then take your laptop apart to install it.
If you are pretty mechanical and technically savvy you might be able to get a few more miles out of the fan if you take it apart and clean and oil it with a good synthetic oil.
When I do these jobs for myself and others I always clean and reapply a good heatsink compound to the processor and sink.
If the unit is overheating due to circulation problems, the old grease used in the original heatsink compound can become dry and hard. Dry and hard does not transfer heat nearly so well.
Now if you want to fix it yourself then you should be somewhat technically savvy about delicate electronics. A good understanding of thermal dynamics cant hurt either. One stray static spark and that motherboard may never boot up again. So be very careful. I have gotten a number of laptops for repair because people were inside them.
Personally I only charge about 25 to 30 for a clean up job that includes reseating the heatsink with new compound. I charge roughly 280, depending on model, to put in new motherboards.
If I get the laptop in pieces I charge double. I really hate that as you have no idea what has been lost or hosed.
Note: Shops in your area may charge differently.

Testimonial: "Very detailed answers, told me just what I needed to know. Couldnt ask for better."
That could be a problem with the heatsink/fan assembly on the processor. It sounds like the processor is starting up, getting warm as they do, the fan starts up but does not cool efficiently enough and forces a shut down due to heat.
Clean out the fan assembly and replace the old heatsink compound on the processor heat sink.
Hope that helps.

Your pc CPU FAN is not working, you need open it and clean fan,, and under fan, on CPU there is termo cream, don't frgot about it, you need clean it and put new termocream. it is nessasary for cool CPU, that Cpu can not be warm.
