Question about Sony Vaio Vgn-nw330f/s Notebook Intel Core 2 Duo T66002.20ghz 4gb Ram 500gb
My laptop (sony vaio vgn-nw330f) shuts off randomly. I have had it on with just the battery, with the power chord in, it still shuts off. Sometimes it takes 10 minutes, sometimes it won't stay on for more than 10 seconds. I don't believe it is a heating issue since it still does this when the temps are just fine. The battery has been getting old and operates at a maximum of 75% these days. It tends to shut off the second I start using a browser so any activity expedites the process. (By shut off, I mean the computer turns off suddenly)

Which is the operating system?
we need to see why it only works in safe mode - have a look in device manager
device manager button>
also any ! X or ?
you may be able to do a recovery
see if you can go back to before you had the problem
what does last known good configuration do
have you got any keys stuck on keyboard - like F8
if new maybe worth sending it back under warranty.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.
Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.
If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.
The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.
If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.
Hope this helps.

A way to check to see if the machine is overheating is when you turn on the computer, there should be an option to hit F10 or F2 for the bios. In there, there should be a few temperature readings. Let the machine idle and in the bios if the tempature rises in there there could be an issue with the cooling for the CPU.
