Ok try this, at boot up press F8, when the Menu comes up, choose Safe Mode, but this time instead of going to the desktop, choose System Restore, follow instructions, and when the Calender type window comes up, simply choose a time BEFORE, the time it went faulty. This should completely restore you to working again. As long as there are NO other problems.

Fan of VAIO CS-118E makes loud sounds


That is definitely a problem from the fan. What you can do is to call sony and check if they still cover Fan replacement for this specific mode.

Computer won't boot- seems to happen when it's humid and i have the windows open in the house. nothing will start the computer- tried tech support. the next day, when it's not humid, computer starts. ...


Hi,
Acer are having the same problem with some of their laptops not working properly when it's hot and humid.
I recommend that you send the laptop back and swap it for a different model as there seems to a fault with certain models.
If you have any data stored on the laptop back it all up before you send the unit back to Sony.
I know it's not the answer that you are looking for but you will be stuck with that computer having the same problem if you don't sent it back to Sony within a year of purchase.



Regards.

After 8 days of no life at all in the laptop , having 2 computer technicians around saying it was probably the motherboard and just about to send to Sony I pressed the power button and hey presto it worked again..Guess it was just sleeping or hibernating...after all it is spring now....Actually one guy of the many forums I have visited advised just to leave the Laptop alone and perhaps it would mend itself..and hey presto he was right, although having said that I have yet to turn the laptop off and startup again..HMMMMMMM...
