I bought my laptop from the states on a visit (vaio vgn-cs215j), after sometime the fan started making a really loud clicking sound that i later found out was a fault with the way it was manufactured - the warranty was extended but i am in school now and not having a visit to the states in the foreseeable future - shipping will cost me $400.
what i want to find out is exactly what is wrong with the model? i want to buy a fan off amazon or ebay but i don't want to spend money and not have the problem solved.
Mr. technician can you help me find a solution to allow me to use my computer in my school library again?
Thanks.

The warranty should be handled by Sony. Check your documents, as some brands only offer 90 days, while stores sometimes have their own extensions for longer periods. Best Buy can also advise which one it is.

My sony viao vgn-cs215j suddenly turn off by itself and it takes 20 minutes before i can re-start and use it again and after 15-20 minutes would shut off by itself again without any warning. what could be...


Sorry i nay be a month late on this thread... but better late than never. My Girlfriends sony vaio VGN-CS215J seems to be doing the exact same thing. After buying one of those computer fans that you rest the computer oneverything seems to be running normal. i would also recommend cleaning your fans inside the computer because dirt dust and grime can hold the fans back from cooling down the laptop efficiently and will cause the safety overheat shutdown to activate and shutdown your computer... that way it does catch on fire or fry any of your hardware inside of your computer.

If that does not work... your fans maybe malfunctioning or not functioning at all. this model of vaio has a grinding fan issue that can be very damaging to your cpu if not fixed.

hope this helps,

Sony Vaio laptop Auto Switch Off problem


A laptop switching off automatically is an 80% chance that it happened because it overheated. To avoid damage computers turn off immediately, very high temperatures can cause fire or smoke.

I suspect that the ventilation fans of your laptop have either stopped working or have caught up too much dust to work properly. Do you use your it on a carpet or a bed? If yes then you are blocking the ventilation so there is no way your PC will cool itself.

First, check if your PC starts making a lot of noise a while after you turn it on. Put your hands on the vents and check if you feel air blowing out. You should feel warm air coming out. If the air speed feels weak, most probably you will have to get the fans clean; a lot of dust has gone in. If you dont feel any air at all or a very weak flow the fans might have broken and need to be replaced.

Check out this video for info:


Finally, I highly recommend you use a laptop cooling pad. There is a huge variety of those in the market. Depending on where the vents are located there are different types of coolers. I personally use a Antec Laptop Cooler. It helps keep my laptop cool specially when I am gaming. Of course you can for another one of your choice but thats a headstart. Let me know if you need more help.

I need to clean both cooling fans on a sony vaio vgn cs215j/p laptop


if you just need to clean the dust from them, most stores that sell computers such as wal mart radio shack , best buy etc. sell cans of compressed air to blow out all the dust. just make sure your computer is turned off before you blow the dust out. i hope this helps!!!
