Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Sony laptop transformer?? Laptop 2003 sony vio is starting to cut out. it immediately shuts down. I thought that it was getting hot but my son says it is the transformer going bad.


Answers :

Hi,
I doubt it's the transformer as it will not start up if that was the case, it's more likely to be a build up of dust in the air vents and CPU fan.
The best way to deal with this is to buy a can of compressed air and give short blasts through the air vents to remove the dust, the CPU fan is located underneath the laptop and when you come to blast air through that be careful not give it sustained blasts as you can damage the fan blades.
When your happy that all the dust is removed your laptop should stay on for much longer, its always a good idea to make sure the CPU fan is working too.



Good luck.
