OK...I saw many people had similar problems with other brands, but I think I should still start a new post...
This is SONY VAIO VGN-T27C/L
It started to shut down by itself about a week ago. Feels like it loses power all of a sudden, while in fact it is plugged in all the time.
I can turn it back on right away. It may run for hours, or shuts down immediately. Sometimes, I can't even turn it back on.
I have scanned for virus, restored the system to an earlier time point, reset the BIOS to default value, and talked with SONY tech support guys who had no idea what's going on...
I even tried to take it apart to see whether there is anything blocking the fan..but it is just impossible to take a SONY apart (much easier with IBM).
Now, it's shutting down on me like 10 times a day. Luckily, I have backed up all my data.
anyone have any suggestions?
don't want to send it back to SONY, they charge $300+ just to look at it...plus, I really want to figure this out...it just bothers me when I can't figure things out...
