Question about Computers & Internet
Does the CPU fan on the VGC-LS1 always spin, or does it cycle on and off as needed?
First time that I had heard of a Sony Vaio VGC-LS1, so I had to go take a look. Pretty Cool!
I can only tell what I think from a tech standpoint of view on it's processor fan.
1.This computer is housed in a housing that incorporates the LCD screen also. It's set up just like a laptop, except the LCD screen is in the body. (Housing)
This means you not only have the heat of the processor when it's running, you also have the heat of the LCD screen.
Plus it's all packed into one tight 'box'.
Processors give off a lot of heat by themselves. If they aren't kept to a certain thermal limit, they will burn up. Literally! Like ON FIRE!
When a processor goes beyond that thermal limit, there is a built-in Fail Safe feature that turns the processor off.
In ANY computer I've seen, or worked on, the processor fan is constantly spinning. As the load for the processor increases, so does the heat given out by the processor, and the fan spins faster.
It is my contention that you have a bad processor fan. I would at least ask a tech in your area, and see if this is so.
If your computer is turning off on you while you are using it,
you have a bad processor fan.
