Hi,
I doubt it's the transformer as it will not start up if that was the case, it's more likely to be a build up of dust in the air vents and CPU fan.
The best way to deal with this is to buy a can of compressed air and give short blasts through the air vents to remove the dust, the CPU fan is located underneath the laptop and when you come to blast air through that be careful not give it sustained blasts as you can damage the fan blades.
When your happy that all the dust is removed your laptop should stay on for much longer, its always a good idea to make sure the CPU fan is working too.



Good luck.

Laptop shut down


Sounds like it is getting too hot. Does it feel real hot when it shuts down? Is the fan and power supply working well and unobstructed so they get good air circulation?

My computer continues to shut-down for no apparent reason while booting up. It will get to bios then abruptly shutdown. Please Help!!


Maybe something is defective from the factory? Can you bring it back and exchange it for another? Is it a desktop or a laptop? If it's a desktop, maybe remove a side panel and aim a small fan at the inside. Do you know how to start up your computer in safe mode? Maybe try starting it in safe mode and see if you can do a system restore, do you know what that is and how to do it? Google will explain it to you, but I'd suggest those steps.

Bose Companion 2 Speakers won't work with Sony Vio Laptop


You don't write which operating system you use, but generally you should be able to choose where the sound output goes in the Sound Properties in Control Panel.
If however Sony decided to put some special software that does the thinking for you, and directs the sound output via the HDMI when connected, then you have to dig deeper...

Dell laptop wont power up looks like its starting ok then shuts down. Power is on at transformer (green light)


It looks that the laptop has a main problem.
Try this:
1. turn on the laptop
2. press immediately the F8 key.
3. If you press o.k. the F8 key, it should open a menu.
4. go to open laptop in error mode, or something like this.
5. press intro and wait until the laptop continues loading.
6. When loading is finish, go to start, programs, accessories, system tools, restore system
7. restore the system to a previous stay.
