Question about Sony VGNCS230JQ 14.1" Notebook - Glossy Black

2 Answers

Hi, I have a 2yr old SONY VIAO VGN CS12GH-B laptop. And recently it has started making some grinding noise and getting shut down. I have opened the fan and cleaned it and put it back, same issue persists. Does this mean I have to change the fan? or such an undercooler is enough? Can anyone tell me what is the cost of such a fan? Thanks, Shailaja.

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.

Sony Viao laptop just started shutting itself down while I was working on a word document. Laptop will not stay on more than a minute or two after booting up even if nothing is open. Battery is charged


Disconnect external devices. Remove battery and power cord. Then reposition them again. Be sure battery is locked with the switch at the bottom of the unit. Keep charger connected. If issue continues it may require service.
If you can see VGN-CS on the upper left corner of the lid (your unit's model number) you will need to call Sony as this is a known issue

I have sony vaio VGN-CS12GH so can i use graphic card in my laptop.


The graphics circuitry is integrated into the motherboard in a laptop and you can't install a different card. If you are looking for a way to improve graphic performance, your only option is to download the latest video drivers from either the computer manufacturer or video chipset makers' websites, and see if any new capabilities have been added.
