The heat sink may be clogged with dust and ifthe BIOS temperature sensor controls the fan speed then it may be compensatingfor the reduced cooling by the dust build-up.
If you are not using your laptop on a flat surface, it may beobstructing the cooling vents on the bottom of the laptop. Your laptop fanmay be faulty and not spinning freely, in this case replace the fan.
Check the fan and heat sink assembly and remove the dust, loosen the dust anduse a can of compressed air to clear away the dust. A laptop fanassisted cooling pad may solve your problem

Sony vaio model pcg-61611L it turns on for 4 seconds and then it turns off using the ac adapter . help please


The charger may be bad, will it charge the battery? a common problem is the DC jack in the laptop breaks connection on the motherboard internittent operation or no power and shut down. If you can sub the charger that will tell if the power supply is bad or the problem is in the laptop. If the computer is the issue I recommend a professional because it will require extensive parts removal.

Remove the CMOS battery

If you attempt to pull the battery, make sure that you have all other sources of power disconnected (AC power and notebook battery). Keep the battery out for about five minutes before reassembling the laptop.

When i connect my adpater to my laptop it doesnt charge my laptop even thow the light on the adapter is green


I'm not sure I understand your question. Can you please be a little more specific.
If your computer is showing green light and it powers up it would mean that your battery is no good and you should start looking into purchasing another battery. If that does not answer your question please feel free to leave a message and I will try and do everything I can to assist you. Good Luck!

Would any 16volt ac adapter be ok to charge my PCG-VX89 vaio notebook?


you can use any laptop AC adapter DC output-16V and 4A (current). if its jack size natch your laptop DC jack.
if the adapter DC current less than 4A (over 2.5A at least) you should only make the battery charging without laptop turn on!!!
please take a rating let me know how much helped you thanks!

Having a problem getting my Sony Vaio PCG-3E2L laptop to auto play my photo DVD slide show. Using Windows Vista Home Premium OS.Also, where can I find a PDF Sony User Manaul for my laptop?


A quick short cut is to open a browser if you use Internet Explorer and select tools menu, then select Internet options. When the box opens then select the advanced tab and scroll down until you see a check box under security and check allow active content from CD to run on my computer.

Also here is the link for your manual: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/index.pl
