I use the laptop for a long time everyday, more than 5 hours, but thats how its been for the last 2 years. Speedfan is a generic program written to interpret the outputs of hundreds of different motherboards. Not being an expert on this I thought I would check. Here is the laptop: You should be able to find a guide via google. Your temp, however, does appear to be quite warm. I use canned air to blow out as much as I could and was able to see light pass through in certain areas.
Most likely in the port itself. The company had received 39 problem reports from users complaining about excessive heat coming from their Vaio computers and problems with the casing being distorted due to overheating. Unfortunately they do not give specific instructions for each model, and again, I do not want to send off the computer, much less pay to have it serviced. Sony clearly hopes that its latest free software update to more than half a million of its customers worldwide should do enough to fix the overheating issue with the new laptops. It would get pretty loud too, nothing that concerned me. If online shopping is more your thing, both and have a decent selection.
Lips under the right and top hold it in place. Once done is hovers around 45-50 degress. Thus, you will have to have full access to the areas in question: breakdown laptop for access. Any Ideas, I am thinking the fan is going bad, but want to make sure before I spend the money on a new one. For the last 2 days the laptop fan has been running loudly and constantly, even when the laptop is just on the desktop.
Small price to pay compared with the hassle of a house fire. If the laptop is still under warranty, we can try to return it to the dealer. You can see the thick strip of dust that was removed at the bottom of the picture, with the arrow indicating the heat sink it was removed from. So enough with the research, it was time to forge new ground. I then proceeded to use cotton swabs dipped in alcohol and cleaned copper fins inside the fan box. Anyone know where to find a teardown guide? Raheem What shops would do it?.
It is burning hot on the tip of the plug that connects to the computer and the area on the laptop is too hot too. We have a dedicated and devoted team of professional writers with multi-dimensional experience of several years. It will be somthing that requires a motherboard replacement probably. What could I possible do? Getting warm is normal but it should not get hot. Though Sony hasn't heard of any problems with the Vaio in Japan, it said it received 39 complaints of overheating and distortion from customers abroad. I know someone whose house burnt down because of one of those, so I wouldn't mess around.
Last, you can re-apply thermal paste if it has sputtered out or lost effect, however video application is probably tricky, at your own risk here. I also noticed that there is not a second fan. The company said that a flaw in the temperature control can create an excessive buildup of heat that distorts the shape of the unit. Most likely in the port itself. Just before we try to open it, make sure that the warranty period is expired.
See this vid: for doing the paste an cleaning. Call Sony they take these things seriously. That bad chip can cause the comp to get extremely hot as well and the vent may be near the power cord plug, which could lead to confusion about the heat source. The problem here is that our laptop contains 2 graphic cards 1. It appears that the steady-state temperatures have only increased by a degree or two due to the modification. The fan no longer ran at high speed and was quite quiet compared to before. Perhaps the one that came with the system, if you aren't going to be gaming, etc.
After removing the dust, it is barely audible. Most likely in the port itself. Over time, the exhaust from the fan accumulates dust inside the box where the fan blows the hot air out. It might be safer to search the model of the notebook. But then again, the place where you bought it will be resistive to accept the laptop, and will be telling you that it is a software issue.
While the fan is off, use the brush attachment on a vacuum cleaner to remove all the dust accumalted at the exhaust port. My friend once bought a Sony laptop and after a few months, he was unable to play games that he used to play. In addition to the clearing out your air vents, consider buying a cooling pad. Hot air from the fan is generally normal. I bought the dissassembly manual from ebay, but I haven't got around to fixing it for her yet.
I don't really know what to do, I have placed it on a stand. This is the reason why, after about one year of use, it starts to overheat, crash and shuts down randomly. Sony is directing users with affected Vaio laptops to apply the update to prevent overheating issues. If you're not now, a cooling pad is a must to get. It is quite common for Speedfan to show more than one fan or temperature output that produces a false reading. My paste was like dried out clay.
