Question about Computers & Internet
My Vaio shot down and won't turn on again. I cleaned the fan very carefully and the technician then proved all its parts. Everything was working, so he thinks it could be the motherboard that just ended up its life. Would you please let me know what else could it be, since the motherboard never before gave me any problem. The power input it ok too. So the life of your motherboard just shots down your computer without never before having prompted anything? Just like that? What other reasons may there be for a sudden shut down?

try to get into the bios and see if the function of the power switch assigned differently. there are MB that use the a hotkey in the keyboard to power-up the system. It should be there in bios. Read the MB's manual too. On OFF state, try typing "O" and "N" then hit enter

I hope that you did not burn the chip of the CPU... The first quick fix is going to be that you go to the local junk shop and buy some of the heat conducting compound. You, very carefully remove the CPU and follow the instructions of the compound package, you apply the compound. It is highly advisable that you construct a jury rigged bracelet with a wire attached and you put it on your wrist and ground yourself to a ground point on the computer. If you still have problems, I can still help you, but I will need to have certain info. Name of compter =Sony Vaio, model number, Motherboard ID and exactly your story, which you said very mice above, but I will not be able to get to it (it goes to the archives). I feel confident that you will be able to fix your computer... Thank you for considering our service...
