Sony Vaio Laptop Recall Sept 2008

\015 I just heard that certain Sony Vaio laptops were being recalled due to overheating, and that some people have been burned. What models are affected, and what should we do if I have a Sony Vaio laptop that has been recalled? \015\012\015\012Just to confirm that my TZ, a 21N (fairly basic model, with RAM only one gigabyte and no fingerprint reader) purchased March 2008 from Comet was included in this recall.The problem (I was told on the phone) was OVERHEATING in the vicinity of the laptop's power supply socket, and it was certainly the case that the underside was getting hot around there. The PC was collected and returned very promptly at the notified times, in a nice padded box supplied for the purpose and I received a friendly letter from Sony and a free(!) two-gigabyte USB flash card, too.Now it happens that this week (just after the expiry of its one-year warranty, of course!) the WIRELESS CARD on this TZ laptop has died on me, and has required replacement with an external plug-in. I have no evidence that this was due to the overheating and, having omitted to pay for an extended warranty, am not pursuing Sony about it, but I wonder whether anybody else has had a similar experience following the recall? - Meg.\015
