Question about Sony VAIO PCV-W600G PC Desktop
My computer just suddenly shutsdown without any warning and the power button does not turn it on, i have to unplug it and wait at least 10 seconds before putting it back in, when i boot, it asks me to go into power settings, I have tried loading the default settings and booting but it takes me back to the same screen. At first i thought it was overheating so I left it unplugged for a night and let it cool down, when i boot up, i logged into windows and tried to make a recovery disk but it shut down halfway through. I tried turning it on again and it just shutdown while I was on the power settings.
I think its a hardware problem.
It sounds like it is overheating. Take the side off the case and see if your CPU fan works. Replace any fans that do not work or feel loose. And while you are at it, take a can of air and blow the dirt out of it.
Leaving it off overnight will not prevent it from overheating. A computer can overheat in a matter of seconds under the right circumstances.
