Having problems with your Sony VAIO PCV-W30 PC Desktop ?

Power keeps cutting off

\015 I turn it on, it works fine for a few minutes and then it just shuts off on me. Only after resetting the plug a few times does start up again. But then the same thing happens after a few minutes even if no programs are running. I think its a power supply problem but I'm not sure. hope you can help\015

Answers :

You need to check your fan at the processor, and make sure it's working.

either your processor or a hard drive is over heating.
