A dryer is definitely a good idea.. you may also try using UD40 contact cleaner this will quickly help resolve the contact burst issue and save your motherboard/keyboard.

Best way I have found to dry out a computer is to use a hair dryer on the lowest setting or no heat and blow it carefully into the vents on the laptop. I have done this successfully on Toshiba and VAIO laptops I used on my boat. Just be careful not to get the hair dryer too close to any plastic to avoid melt damage but on lowest heat or no heat setting that should not be a big issue.

Sony Vaio K33; the fan seems to run all of the time, hot and nois

i had the same problem with my vaio.

when disassembling the notebook: after you remove the metal cover under the keyboard, you'll see three areas covered with black thermal tape. peel back the thermal tape and you should see tightly packed dust buildups in those areas. use a q-tip and vacuum if you can or air duster. be sure to clean the fans as well as the heatsink assembly.

once that is done, your noise level should be reduced by about 60-70%.

if you're still running hot, consider cleaning the old thermal grease off your processor and reapplying a new layer.

Only do this if you feel competent in doing so.

Pulling apart laptops is not for the faint of heart.

If you really must do it there are some
good guides here.

An alternative is to get a can of compressed air used to clean computers. Put the nozzle on and spray it in every hole you can see without putting the nozzle itself inside the laptop.

Do this outside with glasses on.

You may also want to remove the hard drive and ROM drive.

Take a
peek here for more ideas of what is involved.

There are a few are tips for various things in there.

DON'T touch the CPU cooler unless you know what you are doing and have some thermal grease for CPUs to hand.

To make newer laptops last longer between cleaning a good 3 fan cooling pad is suggested.

Never use a laptop on soft surfaces as the ventilation can act as a mini vacuum cleaner and encourage dirt build up.

Soft surfaces also block the vents causing fans to run more and burn out sooner.

Hope this gives you the information you need

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.
