Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-N250E/B Notebook ?

The laptop seems to work completely fine often for several hours sometimes only for about 20 minutes and then with no warning it just shuts down. Have reinstalled OS and am using fan tray to guard against over-heating. Event viewer reporting no errors. Guessing it could be RAM but it has passed diagnostic testing, and seems too infrequent. Running (sadly)Vista Home Premium. Does anyone know of any common faults with this model that could be causing this problem? Thanks.


Answers :

Identical Problem here, I Managed to make it do it much less frequently by placing on a flat hard, surface and only moving it once in a while, if you listen carefully most people who have this problem hear the fans go a little faster for a second before it shuts down, it has been reported to be solved by buying a new charger that is from the same brand as your original

Dell ADAMO 13 w/Vista 64 Random power failure...goes dead in 1 second. Battery fully charged. Happened with external power and when on battery. I have latest BIOS v6.0. I ran pre-boot diagnostics and no error codes revealed. The Dell "My Tech Team" experts now want to replace the solid state hard drive. Doesn't seem logical to go there? I think it may be more related to connector to display and in some cases power failure seems to have occurred when display is angled or being angled back at grea

Hello. I ran a hardware diagnostics test on my network card (NVIDIAnForce), the cable, link, and loopback test passed, but the Network communications test failed displaying an error code- NC315-1W. Could you tell me what this means? My OS is Vista.
