Question about Sony VAIO Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Computer Surging The CPU Fan has been running erratically the past month. Today it began surging - along with surging, the mouse and keyboard would only function periodically. I noticed the battery indicator flashing orange and it said "plugged in, not charging". I took the battery out but left it plugged in and the fan/mouse/keyboard are working fine now. What happened?

SOURCE: Dell latitude D600 battery charge light flashing

You have a ground fault issue in the DC JACK.

There are escentially 4 circuits in the jack and one is not making contact.

1: Negative Charge circuit (outter ring)
2: Negative Run circuit (outter ring)
3 Positive (Inner Ring)
4: Signal (center pin)

I believe the negative charge circuit (outter ring) is not making contact internally. Typically what happens on that model DC Jack is the tension contact metal becomes fatigued, and does not touch the outter ring.

This could come from Heat causing early fatigue of the metal.
Or normal wear, the metal has simply worn out from regular insert/removal.

That usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced.

Try Screen switch function to switch from Internal screen to External monitor to Both.
Normally FN + F4 (on Compaq or FN + F7 on Lenovo check the Function symbols on your Keyboard: allow few seconds after command to refresh configuration.
try Safe mode also. to check if display shows in VGA format.

SOURCE: Acer 3050 battery doesn't charge and causes CPU to run at 90%

I contacted Acer about the problem and their solution was to buy a new battery since the computer was not longer under warranty and they really didn't know what was going on! In talking with friends, and checking on-line, the consensus is that laptop batteries don't last more than two years. You can keep them charged, let them run down, recharge them frequently: they still will only last about two years.
I just find it hard to believe that Acer has never heard of this problem, especially when I'm reading similar posts on this site.

Anyway, as deviant00 suggested, I got a new battery on Amazon.com for $56. They offered $30 off if I signed up for their credit card. The final cost was $26. The battery came today and the computer works like a charm. I also followed jell587's advice and scanned the computer with the Malware he suggested:no viruses.

The solution for me was buy another battery; expect it to last for a couple of years.

Thanks for all the help.

I HAVE NOT LOOKED INSIDE MY COMPUTER, BUT THE FAN BEGAN MAKING A LOT OF NOISE A MONTH AGO. TODAY THERE WAS NO NOISE AND A MESSAGE CAME ON MY SCREEN SAYING "FAN FAILURE- PRESS F1 TO CONTINUE. MAY I USE...


Hi,

First, if the CPU fan is not spinning properly, you should NOT run the system. The fan needs to be replaced.

If the fan is running normally, you may boot by pressing F1.

Before replacing with a new fan, you can first try re-seating the plug for the fan in your computer. The fan's plug may have been bumped or loosed. Re-seat the plug located at J1F1 as shown in the picture below and be sure that it is properly connected.

Hope this helps.

Dell desktop suddenly making surging noises from the tower .It doesn't feel hot.8 months old.Surging lasts a few seconds


this sounds like the hard drives working extras hard. can be caused by malware and viruses as well as anti virus software and realtime protection. the computer might also have a bad bearing in one of the computers fans when you shutdown and power backup listen to the back by the power supply. see if its coming from their or from the cpu cooler. replace as necessary.

Coleman Powermate 3000 surging


Check your air filter to make sure it is clean, especially if the gen. has been run in dirty, dusty conditions. Make sure the gas tank vent is not clogged.

Also, pour some combustion cleaner into the carb. through the air intake to clean the carb. It sounds like it is starving for gas.

Hope this helps.

(1) How do I turn off the computer fan from surging?


As far as the fan issue goes, especially if it's a laptop, blow out the fan exhaust area. Use compressed air to blow out the ventilation area in the opposite direction that air flows through it normally. You'll be amazed how much dust comes out. You can try one of those crappy over-priced ridiculously low pressure canned air deals but to really get it clean, find someone with an air compressor. A mechanic friend or someone in construction that uses an air nailer maybe? If it's a desktop, try blowing out the processor heat sink preferably with the fan removed. Be careful, start at lower pressure and slowly work your way up. Also, if you take the fan off of the heat sink, be careful not to knock the heat sink off of the processor or you will need to clean both surfaces (heat sink and processor), reapply a thin layer of heat sink grease, and reinstall the heat sink and fan assembly. I'll leave the second half of you question open incase both issues are one-in-the-same.

The fan on my computer (HP Pavilion dv2000) won't stop surging.


I suspect it's just a fan failure or pending failure. Try cleaning it by blowing it out with air. If it's the case fan or CPU fan they are easy to replace, but if it's the Power Supply fan it's more complicated.
