    I a sony vaio pcv-w30. It will shut off randomly. and wont turn back on. I switch the wall outlet in which i have it plugged into and it turns on but will repeat the process randomly again. For example i have 3 outlets on my room A B and C. It shuts off in A i use C andi t will work for a lil while then shut off then i plug it back into A and it will work for a lil while then shut off... whats wrong with this?

    mak: It sounds like a heat problem. Check the bios to see what temperature it's running at. Are the fans working? Can you feel warm air when you put your hand near the fan outlets?

    just curious, I've come across a guy who's pcv-w30 is experiencing a similar problem where once you shut down the pc, it won't start from the buttom, he has to pull the plug out, wait a few seconds.. put the plug back in and then it starts up.. So the problem with his w30 isn't that it's shutting down but when you shut it down the same problem with the guy who has to alternate outlets.. So did anyone find a solution to this problem? any ideas, hints or fixes? Thank you in advance for any help! I'm about to take his w30 apart to get to the bottom of it but help is always uhmm 'helpful' :)
