I have a Sony Vaio laptop.
When I turn it on, the fan spins but shuts down after a few seconds, then never starts up again. It only spins at startup.
Anyone got any tips?

Normal.

The fan on a laptop will run for a few seconds until the temperature monitoring software loads, then it only runs when it gets hot enough.

Unless the laptop is overheating, you don't have a problem?

I can't say I have noticed any problems with the PC, what I do notice is that when I have the laptop on my lap it gets too hot and I have to put it on the table to continue working.

I'd say you have a problem if it's too hot to handle! :D
