Sony :: Fan Noise For Vaio Z820db Laptop

Mar 5, 2010

I have 13 inch sony Z 820db laptop not very long ago, for some reason the fan makes quite a bit of noise compare to other models that i own(sony ns190d laptop). Is this suppose to be normal for this laptop? Does anyone else who has this laptop feels the fan noise for this laptop is sufficiently higher compare to other laptops? I can really feel the air pumping out when i place my hands near the ventilation and i only use the laptop for surfing on the net. no heavy application running what so ever. Also have a question about the battery life. They said the standard battery life could last up to 5.5 hours, but mines only last 3 and half hours even just surfing on net.

Sony :: Vaio Z: How Are We With The Fan Noise Now

Jun 28, 2009

I wanted a quiet laptop along the lines of the T400 or the macbook pros. These are quiet enough for me. I owned a Vaio Z in early 2009 that I got rid of purely b/c of the fan noise. Can anyone tell me if the newest models or a vaio fan control type of software or BIOS upgrade has made the VAIO Z series quiet? Otherwise this was a great laptop.

Sony :: Vaio VGN-SZ48GN Fan Noise

Mar 20, 2009

I have just downgraded my T7200 CPU to an T2300 so that the CPU temperature could go down. And that it did. from 68 degrees to 45 degrees in idle but stil the fan is going at it at full speed even at 45 degrees.

I found a post on this forum were a person says that the BIOS has to flashed whit an modede version of the bios file. But how do I make a moded bios?

Its from this topic that I found out that the BIOS has to be changed so that the fan only runs when it needs to and not when it works under normal idle CPU loads:
SZ fan noise?

getting my Sony VGN-SZ48GN fan noise down to a reasonable level?

why is C1E disable on the VGN-SZ48GN and how do I enable it?

Sony :: Vaio FW Noise / Fan Control

Feb 25, 2009

I've recently purchased Sony Vaio FW21E (European model) and to my surprise, I find it quite noisy (contrary to what you can read in many reviews).

The first problem is HDD - I've owned 3 notebooks so far and no one had such a noisy disk. I almost thought that there is some kind of motherboard or GPU fan in there until I opened the case to confirm that the noise really comes from the HDD. It is quite unpleasant in a totally quiet room (like in the night) but I can hear it even during evenings when the room is relatively quiet. Vaio owners with Toshiba MK3252GSX disk (320GB), do you experience the same amount of noise? (On the upside, the performance is really nice compared to my older laptops, Windows Experience Index being 5.4.)

The second problem is the main fan (which I understand is the only fan on this Vaio). It is quiet for the first hour of usage or so but then it always turns on for about 5 minutes, then it's quiet for another 2-3 minutes, then it goes off again etc. etc. I really find this annoying because the fan speed is changing frequently and rapidly (i.e. from zero to high spinning, then it slowly goes down to what I would call acceptable level, then it stops rotating immediately; then it goes of for 100% again etc.)

When you combine these 2 noises, the notebook is quite unpleasant to use in quiet conditions. From the right hand side where the disk is placed, you constantly hear a whisper-like sound while from the left side, you are distracted by the main fan which tends to be turned on and off in a few minutes intervals..........

Sony :: Vaio VGN-SZ770N: Fan Noise

Jul 27, 2009

Ive had this laptop for 3 months and Im quite dissapointed about the fan noise - it is running constantly. My experience is that the fan is running in 3 modes: minimum (always), medium (short time) and max (when using graphics ex.). Sony Support told me that it is normal that the CPU fan is running when the computer is swithed on (=CPU on).

My experience with laptops though is that they are quiet all the time, but eventually starts the fan when using many applications (graphics ex.). The symptom is the same in Windows XP, Linux and FreeBSD. Is it normal behaviour - I mean, should it run constantly or occasionally?

Sony :: Vaio Z11 Noise Cancellation Driver

Mar 29, 2010

I've noticed on several occasions that the sound output is not restored after unplugging the noise-cancelling headphones. Volume up and down (via FN key) have no impact. Usually, Muting and then Unmuting resolves the issue, which seems to point to a driver issue.

Apr 8, 2010

The whining sound coming from this computer ( Sony Vaio VPCCW27FX )

I bought one and returned it and got another one hoping this one will come without the whining noise, but i was wrong.

I tried all these steps suggested by other users:I tried the muting mic. through control panel. didn't workI tried to Go to systems -> Device Manager -> Universal Bus Controllers, itreduced the noise but didn't completely cut it and plus my mouse stopped working.

What I found out was, when i boot the laptop in Safe Mode, the noise disappeared. I don't know what else I should do.

Sony :: VAIO SZ320P Laptop

May 4, 2009

I've had this laptop for a little less than 4 years. No real problems to report. It runs on Dual core processor and Windows XP SP3. For awhile it used to make a lot of noise and it got hot. The noise issue would come and go, figured it was just the processor.

Now all of the sudden the noise stopped. Got speedfan to see what temp was and my core 1 is about 87C. (i can post more temps later, but currently am at work). Now i don't know if i should worry and purchase a fan? or just get an external cooling fan since i plan on getting new computer in about a year.

Now if the problem is the fan, does it matter what fan i purchase or can it be generic. I guess what i need to know if this is common for sz320p's or if i should worry. Laptop still runs fine, never shuts off for any random reason (except for snood), Loads programs fine, and i never get a blue screen.

Sony :: Laptop Screen- Vaio

Dec 10, 2009

I have a Sony Vaio Laptop. Its warranty ended 7th December. Phoned them to get it picked up and now they have it so any work should be covered under warranty.

There is a particle under the screen. I took a picture of it and emailed it to Sony who diagnosed it as dead pixels. They said they would repair it for free under warranty.

Now that they have the laptop they say there is a particle under the screen. They sent me a picture of it and the photo looks identical to what I sent them earlier which they diagnosed dead pixels.

Now they are saying it was accidental damage by me and want to charge to replace the screen (same price as I paid for the laptop).

I think that this is ridiculous and that they should repair it under warranty. They will not accept these two arguments:
1. If I damaged it then I would have had to have opened the screen which there should be evidence of.
2. If the particle got in some other way through a gap then it is a manufacturing flaw because there should be no way of a particle getting in there.

Sony :: Vaio Laptop Driver- With Windows 7

Feb 26, 2010

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FS93S laptop. It is about 4-5 years old. I bought it in Thailand so I think it is a Sony Asian region model.

I installed Windows 7 on it today without any problems. It runs fine, but I am having some driver problems as expected. Even though there are a couple of red lights in the Device Manager, all my hardware is working fine except for the wireless network card. I donít mind the errors in the Device Manager as long as everything works somehow. But I also canít get the function keys working on the laptop, which I would like to have working too.

I called Sony in Thailand and they said the laptop is too old so Sony wonít be supporting it with new drivers for Windows 7.

Are there any Windows 7 drivers from other Vaio models which might be compatible with my laptop?

Sony :: How To: Disassemble Vaio CS-Series Laptop

May 20, 2009

how to open/disassemble my VGN-CS110E laptop but no one had the manuals, etc to how to open it. I have read from several places that the Vaio is like a jigsaw puzzle, and in which case it is. There are always different was of opening different Vaio's. From the "popup" keyboard, to "popup speaker" just to get into the fan. The CS-series is different, you open it as if it were a desktop computer.

First, turn the laptop over so the screen is shut and is on the bottom.

Remove the battery, once removed, there are 2 screws (ignore the 3 black screws), remove the 2 screws.

After this is done, unscrew the screws that is in the casing of the RAM as well as HD. The HD has two screws to be unscrewed, one is hidden thus you have to remove the HD to unscrew it.

In order to disassemble the CS-series, you must unplug a cord that's within the RAM compartment, in doing all of this, slowly lift the underneath piece of the laptop, it should pry away slowly and then you can see the motherboard, fan, etc. You can disassemble the monitor screen from the laptop now as well.

Sony :: Battery Drain On My Vaio F Series Laptop

Apr 10, 2010

Several times I charge the laptop to full and turn it off. When I turn it back on moments later, it shows the battery at 75-80% and it always does this.

I call up customer service (only to find out that they are a bunch of retards because they always refer to their "manual") and they say that this is normal. Which I think is total bs, because they specifically state 3-4 hours of battery life
