    I have the same laptop, after some research, turns out it is a known issue with these laptops. Of course Sony will fix it for free, ONLY if it is within the warranty dates though, even though they have admitted it to be their fault. Problem is, mine didn't start acting up until after warranty dates, and they're trying to charge something north of $200 to ship it off and get it fixed, the damn laptop's not worth that much anymore. Stupid Sony.

My sony vaio comes up with "start windows

You will need a windows installation disc. Then you will need to put that in the computer and boot to the installation disc. From there you will want to perform a repair installation and that should fix your problem and your data will still be on the computer. Be careful and make sure not to perform a fresh install as you will lose all your data.
Thank you,

you might be having hard drive problems, press f2 and make sure the hard drive is showing up ok. if it is then press f8 when booting select safe mode. if it comes up fully then go to the start menu, help and support and select system restore. select a date 1 week prior to the problem.

Sony Vaio PCG-FRV25 Cooling Fan Issue?

I was going to suggest overheating before I read your own diagnosis; Yes, sound like the fan, but you can check by opening up and watching it. Or install temperature monitoring software such as Speefan;
If it is the fan it may well be that there is only one possible replacement - officially. But it is usually possible to cannibalize something cheaper to suit your purpose!

Computer problem, help.

This generally indicates a hard drive crash/failure, in which the hard drive will need to be replaced. Rare, but occasionally you will get this error from an operating system glitch. Before you run out and buy a new hard drive, try reloading the operating system. If you have any problems during or after the install, then the hard drive is shot.
