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

My Sony Viao wont stay charged and when i try to power it up, it shuts down by itself at the sign in screen. It wont let me get past the sign in screen,


Are you using a Sony Battery or an aftermarket cheaper version?
If your battery has been changed to a different brand then thats your problem and a whole problem in itself.Not saying there is anything wrong with that, but the Sony ISBmngr.exe file will stop the charging of any battery exept Sony's and put the system into hibernation mode. ( website with Info below)....
If you have the original manufacturers battery then go on.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the typical charging-plug, jack, for laptops. Many times the plug itself is bumped over time and pushes on the pin in the center. The charging time becomes very short, if at all, because the connection is broken.Some are completely or because of the position of the wire holding it just right long enough to give a short charge.

32917b9.png With a Voltmeter ,check the output of the charger itself to be sure it is working properly.
Although VIAO has been out for a while & because the model was not listed here the age of the battery may also be in question. If the battery has shorted out and the charging unit & jack are fine then a bad battery that has shorted will cause you symptoms also. Try removing the battery and running on the charger alone.
Here are a couple of sites that I found that deal with Sony VIAO's

try to restart your laptop in SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING. once you are in safe mode with networking change power settings from power option in control panel. Try SYSTEM RESTORE. Still you face problem press F8 when you turn your laptop on. You will get advance options. Select LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION.

My laptop shut down after powering out with no warning and will not restart.... Toshiba L550 screen stays black but when I hit the enter key it beeps........any suggestions


“My Toshiba laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without any warning. Sometimes it works fine for hours, sometimes it shuts down in 10-15 minutes.” This complaint we hear from our customers over and over again. About 15-20% of all Toshiba laptops we get for repair, suffer from an overheating problem. Yep, OVERHEATING!
This is one of the most common problems with Toshiba laptops we deal with.
Indications of laptop overheating problem:
  1. The keyboard and the bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.
  2. The CPU fans are working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much louder than before.
  3. The laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10 minutes of operation.
  4. The laptop works fine when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any memory demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software, video editing software, etc.).

Solution:
If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It’s nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.
  1. Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
  2. Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
  3. Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
  4. I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.

My sony viao vgn-cs215j suddenly turn off by itself and it takes 20 minutes before i can re-start and use it again and after 15-20 minutes would shut off by itself again without any warning. what could be...


Sorry i nay be a month late on this thread... but better late than never. My Girlfriends sony vaio VGN-CS215J seems to be doing the exact same thing. After buying one of those computer fans that you rest the computer oneverything seems to be running normal. i would also recommend cleaning your fans inside the computer because dirt dust and grime can hold the fans back from cooling down the laptop efficiently and will cause the safety overheat shutdown to activate and shutdown your computer... that way it does catch on fire or fry any of your hardware inside of your computer.

If that does not work... your fans maybe malfunctioning or not functioning at all. this model of vaio has a grinding fan issue that can be very damaging to your cpu if not fixed.

hope this helps,

Lenovo laptop shutdown suddenly after working for a while


Hi James, replace the fan or If it's still under warranty have it serviced. Suggest you stop turning it on until the fan is replaced. It could be the fan cooling the CPU. You don't want it to fry.
The shut down process is normal when over heating is detected by the system.
