    I might be able to open up the back cover of the laptop ... but are you sure that clean it up will solve the problem?

    One more thing, i would really appreciate it you can recommend some sites where i can get new fan and if there is any silent fans for this model of laptops?

    Thanks.

HAVE TRIED CHANGE THE CMOS BATTEWHAT CAN I DO NXTRY TO REMOVE BIOS PASSWORD BUT IT COUDNT WORK,?


Sony Vaio PCG and some Vaio VGN Series use the last 7 digits of the laptop serial number to calculate the bios master password. The serial number for a Sony Vaio is often located on the bottom of the laptop on a white sticker. The serial number may also be found by removing the battery and checking in the battery compartment. The link to unlockbiosrecovery.com below works on the following models:
PCG-C, PCG-F, PCG-GR, PCG-GRS, PCG-GRT, PCG-GRV, PCG-GRX, PCG-GRZ, PCG-N, PCG-NV205, PCG-QR, PCG-R, PCG-SR, PCG-SRX, PCG-TR, PCG-V, PCG-VX, PCG-X, PCG-Z, VGN-B, VGN-FS, VGN-S, VGN-T, VGN-TX1, VGN-X
I use http://www.unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_Sony_Bios.php
For $20 they use the last 7 digits of the laptop serial number to calculate the bios master password and then email it to you in an hour. They guarantee it to work and you can call them if you have a question.

I have a Sony Vaio Model PCG-5J2L. Lately, the fan has been really loud, and the bottom of the laptop has been heating up and it is VERY HOT. Also, the other day, it just shut down by itself while I...


That recall is for VPCF11 and VPCCW2 models. Your issue definitely sounds like a heat problem. Sometimes it can be a buildup of dust, fuzz, carpet etc especially if you use it on a bed or the floor. Check all the vents and make sure they are clear. If the fan is making abnormally loud noises, slight grinding it could be failing. Here is one, retails for about 35 dollars. Make sure you get one with a heatsink, better safe then sorry. It is not too difficult to replace, but if you are not comfortable doing it then it is best to take it to a computer repair store.

Is there a quieter fan for the sony pcg-k45?


If your fan is very loud, and works all the time, then probably you'll need to clean up your laptop from the inside. On average it only takes 3 months for any laptop to gather enough dirt so the CPU heatsing gets totally clogged and this causes the fan to work all the time, and in extreme cases your laptop even turns off so it protects the CPU from the excess heat.
Here's a very good overheating laptop cleanup tutorial with some best practices that any laptop owner should know.

Loud fan belt type noise from laptop


There are no belts in a computer, sounds like something is rubbing in your computer cooling fan blades, get a can of Duster ( to clean dust from things) and spray the compressed air into all the vent holes to clean out any dust and debris.

Vaio PCG-9S1L Screen is very dark, extremely hard , LAPTOP SONY


As stated in your post "two year old may have dropped it"
If this is true than the backlight has probably been damaged. The small flourescent tubes that generate light through the LCD display.
