Pop the side of the case off, it either uses screws or has plastic retention system. Then you will see a main fan over the CPU heatsink. Unscrew or unclip the fan. Install the new fan. If the fan is literally attached to the heatsink and cannot be removed then you will have to buy a whole new heatsink from www.newegg.com 10-30 dollars (comes with a new fan as well). If you remove the whole heatsink make sure you have thermal paste to reapply to the processor and heatsink. If you email me a picture of the inside of the case i can help you. letzfly777@gmail.com Hope that helps!

Is it possible to upgrade the processor for the sony vaio pcg 81114l


most likely this cannot be done, the sockets for the processors have changed twice since then. I don't think you would see a great prefprmace change if you could. You might thim=nk about upgrading to a more powerful core I7 from that generation, but you would need to find out which mother board you have and which processors it supports. Unless you are skilled in laptop repair, I would pass on the upgrade.

Sony VAIO VGC-RA810G Desktop overheats and freezes.


Following are the reasons for overheating, just take care of these things::
- Clean the Processor fan, Heat Sink and other peripherals
- Use High Speed fans
- Use CPU Heat Sink Paste in the processor

- Stop Overclocking your CPU
- Make sure your Heat Sink is placed properly above the processor
- Make sure your dint restrict the speed of CPU fan.
- Use Additional Cooling Units
- Shut down your computer at least two hour a day
Finally i will suggest you to get system utility program like PC Fresher. because it is a very useful tool that cleans your computer of temp files, history and cookies. Its also used to fix any registry errors that cause of overheating

I have a vgc rc110g model, system is getting hot, shuts down with message saying mother board is out of range, said temp is running around 69c, back fan is running


I would open the case and have a look at the fans, likely there is a fan failure on the motherboard, my bet would be on the processor assembly. Replace the fan that is not spinning, or possibly just hit is with a blast of canned air to clear it, and the situation should resolve.

Noisy fan when downloading larger files


Well this really isn't much of a problem, as the fan turning on shows that it is doing its job. It turns on due to processor having to run faster, naturally raising its temperature, so the fan keeps the processors temperature within operable limits.
