    It was rated as poor because what was offered is not a solution. The link that was suggested had no accesible files that offered alternatives, so hence POOR SOLUTION.

    Your assuming that one has not done their homework and blaming a poor solution on the petitioner and expressing frustration as your contribution being a waste of time is dissapointing too. This computer does not come with an owners manual, sony has no available instructions to accees the power supply and the only alternative found so far is to take it to a certified Sony repair shop that charges 140 falt fee just to look at it, when obviously its a matter of finind the rights screws to remove in the proper order, remove on faulty power supply and install the other one.

    Bottom line, all I am looking for is how to remove the case and avoind having to pay 400 dollars to a repair that can be done for 78 dollars which is the cost of the power supply.

    So, don't give up on helping people, but if you don't have the solution, then don't offer any, because if you feel frustrated, hwo do youthink others would feel when they think they have a solution and it turns out to be a dead end.

    Thank you anyway for your time and effort.

Do you have the User's Manual? Here is a link to that User Manual, but it looks to be in a proprietary format (.chm) that must be downloaded to the Sony PC in order to view (rather dumb, I think, but that's Sony for you!). http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=PCVW600G I could not find any other information about this unit other than what I found on the Sony website. Good Luck!

    interesting that this user would receive one response to a very vague question and then rate it as poor? It's users like this would make me say, "Why do I bother to take the time for people who won't save or read an onwer's manual, or pick up a phone to call a manufacturer?"

    I may not stick around, and the rating system of this site is a real downer to those of us that take our valuable time to TRY to help people out.

    Outta here....good luck to those that do actually take the advice for what it is - ADVICE, not always solutions.

In my opinion you have a faulty power supply, replacing only the fan may not solve your problem. Try replacing the power supply.

Computer powers ok from one location but not in another

Try and replace both power supply's with higher volt supplies.
Those are too low requirements to hold up those computers.
Solution:
Get two higher voltage power supplys.

Freeeeeeeze problem

Sounds like you may have a bad power supply. It's a cheap fix, abd always a good upgrade. I recommend at least a 400 watt power supply.

Try unplugging components one by one (disk drive power, CD power, video cards, etc) with the system unplugged and see if the fan speeds up when you restart it. Note than when you remove certain cards, video for example, you may get beep codes. 

 

Everything in a slot on your PC shares a common power bus so any card installed may be pulling too much load on your power supply. Pull em one by one re-starting between each one.

 

If this doesn't locate the fault, check the power plugs to your disk/cd drives and ensure that you are getting 12VDC between the yellow and black wires and 5VDC between the red and black wires.  If you are not, and you have already pulled all cards/drives, you have either a defective power supply or your motherboard is drawing too much current.  In the last case, pull your memory cards one by one and re-start between each pull.

YOu will get memory size errors if you let the boot procedure go too far but all you want is for the fan to go.

 

You  can accurately pinpoint POST errors with a POST diagnostics board available at most PC shops. It comes with a code manual.

It sounds like you have a bad power supply. If you can use a different one that you know is good, then you will know for sure, but it definitley sounds like a bad power supply. Hope this helps you.
