Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FZ260E/B Laptop

1 Answer

I have a problem with my Vilo VGN-FZ260E/b its not like a system error its more like a physical problem.. see when i turn on the laptop its runs fine. but after 5 minutes the laptop gets Very hot. Even with a laptop cooling fan it still burns your hand. when i feel the bottom of the laptop its like an mini oven. i think its my CPU fan/Graphics card thats overheating. Any Ideas?

    yeah. i acutally got 3 cooling fans for it. 1st one the cooling fan completely fried itself cooling my laptop (no idea how it happened but the cooling fan just melted alittle bit and the wires were fried). 2nd one i bought samething as the first but it didn't melt the motor just fried. The last fan i bought is still in its box. im not even going to try it yet till i can figure out whats wrong with it. and the weird thing is no matter how hot it got my laptop never shut itself down. it just kept burning. im scared it might eventually catch fire. thats why i unplugged it and repackaged it back into its box.

I can get you an advice, a basic advice for you as a user......you can buy in the market such a USB cooling fan...a lot of design in the market...you can check, i think that's the best solution for you.....
but you can check first the processor fun of your laptop cause maybe its not working,it will become hot..and it will shutdown your laptop.be advised you to check first your processor fan..if it is working then you need to buy a USB cooling fan..

That message is because there is no OS on the disk. Press OK to agree the notice and then load the System Disk in your DVD drive and boot from there.

I have a sony vaio fz260e. I blew dust out of it today through the vents using a canister of air. Now the fan does not come on.


The fan only comes on when needed,, when you first turn the laptop on it will come on for a sec<--test this!!

if it comes on in the test your good,, dust will make the fan run all the time..

If it dont come on in the test and it worked b4 its jamed with a ball of dust,, fix asap or the fan will burn out!!

Blue scren on my laptop


You can configure Windows not to automatically reboot when a System failure happens (Control Paner -> System -> Advanced tab -> Settings button).
That will allow you to write down the details when it happens again. To solve a BSOD error, you really need to check the error details and analyze the stop error code and other details.
