At times my sony vaio laptop turns itself off


The Sony VAIO CS-series Computer model has a known issue with its fan. If the fan is making abnormally loud noise and causing the Computer to shut off then service will be required. You can contact Sony Service Center to get the Computer repaired.

However, if the fan is not making loud noise but the Computer is shutting off automatically then possibly it may be a virus or the failure of the power supply unit. In this case, you may run complete system scan using an updated Antivirus program such as Norton to check for any potential threat. Furthermore, you can perform the C: Drive Restore using the VAIO Recovery Center or complete System recovery using the Recovery disc to ensure that the issue is not related to Software.

Follow the instructions given in the link below to access and use the various features of the VAIO Recovery Center:

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C1001992

Click on the sublinks given in the blue text on the page to view further information.

If the issue persists even after system recovery then the problem is related to the power supply unit.

Sony Vaio CS14G/B is crashing in the middle of work


I suggest that you perform System Recovery either using the Recovery Partition or the Recovery Discs set. If the issue persists then service may be required.

Furthermore, there are some VAIO CS series model which has known issues related to fan noise. So, if the issue persists after performing Complete System Restore then you may contact the Sony Service Center.
