This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard.

Hi,

The shutdown issue might arise in your Sony VAIO Z Series, if any of the system components are damaged. When the problem occurs, you need to open the system panel. Then, you need to remove each component and check with which component the problem exists. If you find a problem with any component, you need to remove the component and upgrade it to a new one.

First, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

Sony vaio PCG-7142L keeps freezing


Can check if the battery is low ... or is not (or cannot) holding a good charge ... when you unplug it (from the charger) ... when this happens ?

If that is the case, it may "freeze" while it is busy trying to store the contents of your memory before it shuts down (or hibernates). Does it shut down (or goes into hibernate if you let it continue to "freeze") for a while ? If so, then it's your battery.

If the battery doesn't hold a good charge, the laptop will run only a short time (while unplugged) before it has to shut down due to low battery. And if this is the case, consider getting a replacement (new) battery. And follow the initial charging instructions (for a new battery) to lengthen the life of the battery.

Vaio shuts off suddenly


You may have a conflict issue with your media players. Make sure media players are closed before using another one. If you shut down, your Viao should work. Make sure you press "Stop" on your Windows media player if you want to use another player.

My sony vaio VGN-AW41ZF keeps turning off by itself. It doesnt shut down, just cuts off as if there is no power but the battery is fully charged and plugged in. Could this be an overheating problem?


I have a Sony VAIO GRS170/GRS175 in use almost every day since 2003. It used to turn off regularly during hot summer days even with its battery fully charged and plugged in. The problem was eliminated by using a small fan to blow air at its side where the air intake was located. Later, the fan was replaced with a notebook cooling pad which was more convenient. You could first try using a fan to see if it makes any difference. If you don't get anymore shut downs, then the problem is definitely due to overheating. You could then replace the fan with a notebook cooling pad.

Turning off


Perform power drain ( remove all accesories including the battery and the power adapter) press the power button for 1 minute.

Connect the power adapter only then turn on the computer - try using for more than 1 hour. If the computer does not shut down then the issue is the battery.

Run anti virus software.

If problem still persist it is a posible hardware issue. If you are still in warranty you can call sony and they can help you fix the issue for free.

It could be that the laptop disables it's battery when you connect it with the power supply. When the power supply then fails it won't have enough time to switch back to battery. You'd best first try another power supply, and post back here if that doesn't help.
