There is a well-known issue with heat problems, and also memory bank circuits degrading.

In the meantime, take out the memory, clean contacts with pencil eraser, and try putting one in at a time to see if your laptop turns on.

I want to do a factory reset of my Sony Vaio net-book as I plan on selling it. Can you please advise how this is done?


Hi!
To restore your computer to factory default you can do this: Turn the computer on. While the computer is turning on, keep tapping F12 on your keyboard. System recovery partition will open. choose restore your operating system. Wait for the process to complete. The computer will restart by itself.
***Note: Doing this will delete everything that you have said in your computer. back up your files before doing this.***
Hope this can help. Take care.

it sounds like a problem with your harddrive. if you have an oem copy of your OS then you could do a chkdsk /r from this. If not then the harddrive will have to be removed and the chkdsk /r done from a data reader from another computer. Hope this helps, leave feedback

My sony vaio pcg-k33 shuts off by itself when i turn it on. i think its the video card cause the fan turns on and stays on when i turn the latop on. so maybe its over heating. Please help


Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Buy a can of compressed-air, and give your computer a "blow-job", because a layer of dust inside your computer is blocking your heat-radiators, and thus is causing your computer to overheat.

When I turn on my computer it just turns itself


I've had this problem, the CPU was over heating. Cleaned OEM thermal paste off CPU & heat sink and reapplied thermal paste. Also know a bad P/S can also cause the same probblem.

My Sony Vaio laptop turns off constantly. It


When it is running I need to know if the air coming out of the vent slats is hot or just warm. It sounds like the laptop is overheating and shutting down so it doesn;t burn itself up. Get a can of compressed air they sell at office supplt companies and use short bursts of air in the vent slots and fan housing. If there is an access panel on the bottom that allows access to the processor and heatsink, blow that area out too. Then check the Sony support site and see if they have a BIOS update for that model computer. Some manufacturers are writing new BIOS instructions for their laptops for the fans to run longer and faster to take care of heat issues.

3 month old Sony Vaio notebook keeps turning off by itself, won't even last more then a couple seconds to a couple minutes, tried system restore and defragmenting, and disk cleaning...still nothing!! could...


Try on the BIOS/System Setup and check if its turning off there as well. To entere there, start your computer up, and when you see the Vaio logo press [Delete] several times. You will see a blue screen or black with information of your computer, leave it there for as long as it takes to shut down, if it doesn't then please let us know.

Wireless network connection


you may need to run the network wizard, as your sony may not be set up as using a gateway type connection and may be instructing other pcs to connect via itself and not on the network.
