Question about Sony VAIO Digital Studio PCV-RX660 PC Desktop
When I turn on my Sony VAIO PCV-RX660 PC Desktop it is able to boot up to the windows o/s. I log into windows and click around but after a little bit it just freezes and mouse stop working, key board stops working. Anyone know what causes this problem. Thank you in advance for all that reply. -ktang
OK. I fixed my problem which sounded exactly like the problem you are having. What I did was: 1. Removed the top of the case 2. Removed my floppy drive (You will need the power cable for step 3) 3. Installed an exhaust fan at the top in the back by the power supply you will see an opening there. I used a 12v fan I connected the wires Black to Black and Red to YELLOW (This is because it was a 12v fan) 4. Removed the heatsink from the processor and cleaned off all crusty old thermal compund. 5. Applied Artic Silver 5, and put everything back together. 6. Did NOT put the top of the case back on. SO... thats that. It's been 2 days no crashes, I do notice a slow down once in a while. But I am wondering if that's just my computer trying to right itself from crashing for the last 3 weeks. Hope this helps.

Dood I have the SAME COMPUTER SAME PROBLEM!! I thought it was the summer heat. I cracked the case opened up the power box and used an air compressor to blow out the dust... there was A LOT of dust. The solution worked for about 30 min. Then started again. I have removed all unnessacary VIAO software years ago... I saw on another BBS they suggested doint this. "As some one in this forum suggested, I looked in the Admistrative tools in windows XP (Control panel\performance & maintenance\adminstrative tools\event viewer\system) and saw that each time my computer froze, my network card was involved. I took the card out and reinstalled it and now...ta da...no freezes." I dont know if this will work but The Service Control Manager is involved everytime mine crashes. Peas

First, did this problem suddenly appear?...or was it slowly getting worse? It sounds like an interrupt problem with the video hardware. If this problem suddenly appeared, then boot Safe Mode and then run system restore to date just before problem occurred. If this came gradually, then solution is same as above except finding date will be more difficult and trial and error routine will be necessary.
