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.

I bought my new Sony Vaio VPCEH last 2 weeks ago,. dual core, 2.3ghz, 4gb ram.. what i wondered is why my cpu almost overload all the time even i just use firefox, or explorer (opening folders ) or so


The CPU is runnimg with a useage of 45-60% as soon as the laptop has booted up because Kapersky is upgrading the virus definition file and is running a virus check on the files stored on the hard disk. When Kapersky has finished these tasks then you will see a drop in CPU useage.
NOTE as you install more programs and as your data files increase so will it take longer for Kapersky to carry out the virus scan.

I have a sony vaio vgn nr430e laptop the display goes off as soon as the cpu fan starts rotating


That could be a problem with the heatsink/fan assembly on the processor. It sounds like the processor is starting up, getting warm as they do, the fan starts up but does not cool efficiently enough and forces a shut down due to heat.
Clean out the fan assembly and replace the old heatsink compound on the processor heat sink.
Hope that helps.

I have sony vgn fz4000.it gets heated very soon after starting. Is there any solution


Press ctrl alt del butons together. Go to Task Manager and check if any Process is running at 100% or close to that CPU speed. This usually happens if a program or service has failed and the CPU is trying to complete the job. The CPU heating problem should be cured once you have found the program using your full CPU power. Try to uninstall that program completely. If you need it then try reinstalling again after a reboot. Read more at www.fixpcfreeze.com

My vaio vgn-cs320j makes a loud spinning noise that comes and goes every few seconds or minutes. Is it the fan not working properly or some other issue, or is that just what the fan sounds like? if it is...


Usually Sound from Notebook are from CPU cooling fan and from Hard drive.

But It's hardly occur in the case of Hard drive.we called it Hard drive failure and the only solution for this is new replacement.

Your problem could be CPU cooling fan not working properly. Open the Notebook ( it will be easy if you refer to manual on how to open) and start the system now, you will be able to pinpoint what causes the sound.

Clean the CPU cooling fan with an air blower and re-check if the problem still persists.

If OK,then close the Notebook otherwise replace the CPU Cooling fan with a new one.

My vaio vgn-cs36mj laptop i buy b4 5 month its working normally till last week. and now i have a problem. from cpu cooller coming a bad sound its not normal.now i dont know what can i do. please help me


It seems that the CPU cooling fan is defective. Since you just bought the laptop before 5 months, I assume it is still covered by warranty.

Sony Vaio VGN CR-220E


Haha!

I had such dreams too with one of my old Vaio. I really wanted to upgrade the processor and graphic chipset. Turns out that the latter is impossible (it was soldered to the motherboard - it wasn't a graphics card, just an all-in-one chip), as for the processor I was able to take it out but I ran into several problems:
1) vaio added electronic components to the motherboard that made higher CPU speeds unachievable even if the motherboard's cipset (VIA) was able to do that.
2) the cpu maker (AMD in my case) kept telling me that their mobile cpu were custom designed for that specific laptop, so new cpu would be incompatible. Also mobile CPUs are, apparently, only sold to laptop makers, unlike OEMs... (eBay but at ur own risk!).
3) When buying a new CPU, u need to check factors such as the number of pins (mobile cpu are much smaller), voltage, current, wattage and heat dissipation (very important, ur current heat sink was designed for ur current cpu).

But maybe things have changed now. In my case, I could only upgrade the RAM and the hard-drive to larger and faster versions, and the difference was quite significant difference. Faster booting and better internet experience.
