Question about Sony Vaio Vgn-nw330f/s Notebook Intel Core 2 Duo T66002.20ghz 4gb Ram 500gb

1 Answer

Sony vaio laptop shuts down suddenly

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)

SOURCE: laptop sony vaio VGN CS230J shuts down every 5 to

Hi there,

Which is the operating system?

we need to see why it only works in safe mode - have a look in device manager
control panel>
hardware tab>
device manager button>

also any ! X or ?

you may be able to do a recovery
system tools>

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.

SOURCE: My sony vaio shuts down in booting process.


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.

SOURCE: My Sony VGN-CR590 shuts down after 5-10 minutes. How can this be fixed? I'm not sure the fans are running.

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.

This can be a sign of a memory failure, either the RAM is not clearing or the hard drive is on its' way out. Hold the power button down for 6 seconds for a "hard shutdown". Then restart and see if the problem persists.

update your Anti Virus first. then scan. maybe your computer has a virus. if it has no virus, check the battery. if the battery is good, then there is a problem on the motherboard.

Power is erratic. Shuts off randomly.

it could be caused by a lot of things. isolate it first. since its randomly shutting down, try first in normal mode. does it heats up before it turns off, if yes its an overheating issue. you may need to replace fan or even motherboard of your pc. have you checked your battery? is it properly seated? or is the problem happening when your system is plugged with the ac adapter? try to check the power cable.

have you tried holding the power button down for about 5-10 seconds to manually shut down laptop? make sure the system is up to date with the current updates and clean out the system using your antivirus program. also try microsoft security essentials if you dont already have it.

Sudden laptop power shutdown Sony VAIO VGN-T250

Well, your BEST option is to get it fixed. Fortunately, many places charge about 100 bucks to replace the power connection on the board, unless you know how to do that yourself. Or, you can purchase another computer just like it, and keep that one for spare parts. But, if you want my advice, call someplace and ask how much to repair the DC jack. Pick up the phone, the call is free. :)
