Question about Computers & Internet
The fan is not work , i test the fan alon it work, but on motherboard sometimes work sometimes not work , help pleas
All Sony notebooks come with a built-in fan that keeps the hardware components in the laptop from overheating.
When the fan on your Sony notebook does not spin, your motherboard or other key hardware components may become permanently damaged.
If your Sony notebook fan is not spinning, it is important to resolve the issue as soon as possible to avoid further problems.
By going through each of the most likely causes for this problem, you can determine how to get the fan in your Sony notebook working again.Clogged Fan
A Sony notebook computer has vents on the bottom that enable air to flow in and out of the laptop's fan.
Occasionally, dust and other particles may get into the fan through this vent, which can cause the fan to become clogged.
When the fan is clogged, the fan may either spin slower than normal or stop spinning altogether. You can usually fix a clogged fan on your Sony notebook by using a can of compressed air to blow the dust out.
Consult your Sony notebook's user guide to determine how to safely access the fan for cleaning. Disconnected Fan
The fan on the Sony notebook is connected through a wire to the power supply on the laptop. Although this wire is firmly connected from the fan to the supply, it may become disconnected if the Sony notebook is dropped.
When the fan's wire is disconnected, the fan will not spin because it is unable to draw the power it needs to function properly.
You can check whether or not the wire is connected by following the directions listed in your Sony notebook's user guide to take apart the computer.
Defective Fan Your Sony notebook's fan may not spin because the fan is defective.
The fan may become damaged if the notebook itself is damaged in some way.
Occasionally the fan may be defective due to a manufacturing error, as is often the case with the VGN-CS and VGN-BZ Sony notebooks: these notebooks have an extended warranty due to faulty fans.
You can have your fan replaced by Sony for free if the notebook is still under warranty. Otherwise, you may need to pay to have the defective fan replaced.
If the fan is clean, fully functioning and connected correctly to the notebook's power supply, your Sony notebook's fan may not spin due to a defective power supply that prevents the fan from receiving the power that it needs to function.
Alternatively, your fan's wire may be frayed or otherwise damaged, which can cause the fan not to spin.
In either case, you must repair the faulty component in order to restore full functionality to the Sony notebook's fan.
