Sony Vaio CS-115J repair

So, A buddy brought his girls computer by (Sony Vaio CS-115J) <---It's PINK!

It was out of service since around 2008, I tried to "hack" it using software tricks to keep the computer from shutting down / no-booting etc...

Came down to the CPU / videocard / case / all in one fan, <--- one fan for an entire computer, BAD IDEA!

well, I started by getting it all updated, turns out a patch back in 2008/2009 went wrong, got it fixed, updated windows 7 using an "anytime" upgrade from Vista <-- Yuck! still had some shutdown's after about 15-25 minutes of working, so this started to point to heat, popped on speedFan to watch some temps and there it was, the CPU, and whatever was labeled TEMP1 could be ram or video, or even mainboard, doesn't matter because there is only one fan...

Opened the case, hooked up wall power, fired up the machine, and the fan doesn't even twitch...

Heat Sink / fan unit will cost $40, and the computer should be good as new.

I'll add more pictures, and confirm the fix once the part gets here / installed.

And, something weird, I would rather open up laptops than paint motorcycles!

Re: Sony Vaio CS-115J repair

I had to fix my Dell B130 cause my grandson spilled his milk on it. I should of turned it off before cleaning the milk up. I tipped it up and thats when it went. So took her apart cleaned it up and let it dry until the next evening. Put it back together and it booted up but I had 4 small screens and the key board didnt work. Ordered a new key board and that took care of it. Thank god really didnt know what to do about the 4 small screens couldnt read anything. I thought I'd have to try hooking it up to a larger monitor to see what was what.. But hey not bad for a carpenter!!!!!

Re: Sony Vaio CS-115J repair

Dang Brady, Milk? it does a body good but not a motherboard!

Blitz, We have had almost nothing but bad luck with the laptops that are for gaming, those video cards just run too dang hot! an Alienware was one of the few gaming laptops I've used and loved!

My brothers current laptop requires a cooling pad (big fan) while running games, sort of kills the idea of a highly portable laptop...

ps

I got lucky and found a fan that will work with the current heat-sink for $10 just got to order it and wait!
