What your going to have to do is right away purchase a fan for it. Hopefully the fan not working may have shut it down automatically to prevent damage. It runs on a thermostat so when the voltage or a certain temp occurs the machine is designed to shut off. That is a good thing.
Now the repair is rather difficult if you have never done it before. But rather simple if you have. It is really just removing the top of the laptop where the keyboard is then taking out a couple of screws and unplugging the fan from the board. Because you did not specify the exact model number which is on the back of your laptop or noted on the face or the screen I cannot possibly find you a link to purchase one. However do not start the computer anymore until this is replaced otherwise you may end up purchasing more than a fan.
So look up the number go online and purchase the fan you need. If your not worried about the cost take it in and have it repaired at a shop. Or have it repaired by someone that knows how to do this. Get back to me if you want to and tell me the model number and I can search out the fan you will need for it and give more detailed links to get a visual on the repair at Youtube there is a lot of repair videos there as well more than likely you will find a visual on how to do the repair yourself there. Just type in your model and make at search box and see if there is a video on your computer to show you what you need to know.
I hope this gave you some sort of idea to at least begin. John

SOURCE: Sony Vaio wont boot

Hi Lisa, I am not an expert and I am also new at this site. But I believe I have a solution for you! I had this problem before with a similar model. It is usually a problem with the memory chip or memory slot: 1. Remove one of the memory chip 2. replace it with a sony compatible memory chip. * not all memory chips works with sony so you have to make sure! If it is the slot: 1. compare it with the working slot to see if there is any difference. 2. If there is a bended solder try to bend it back to the correct position. 3. If you can't find the problem you might want to buy a larger memory chip and work with only one slot. Good luck

SOURCE: I need steps to replace Fan for my Sony VAIO VGN-S460

the fan is screwed together with the motherboard, the only way i figured is to separate it is completely unscrew the motherboard, cd drives.....then unscrew the fan from the bottom side of the motherboard....

i took the fan out just today, wantted to add some lubricating oil to it, but then can't manage to separate the blades & expose the centre

how much did the replacement fan cost? i am in canada, not even sure sony stores here have it.

SOURCE: Sony Vaio fan making noise

Not sure of a user cause for the fan to run full speed, unless you are using the laptop in a high heat environment, or setting it on a bed or other area where it is not getting adequet cooling air. If it does it right away, when you turn it on , cold, then there might be a laptop hardware problem. If you leave your laptop on all the time, then you might be inducing the problem. I had a HP high performance laptop, that the fans would not turn on at all till it ran an hour or so, then they would stay on loud for 10 or 15 minutes, then shut off, then cycle.

SOURCE: sony vaio fan is making a grinding noise, how can

The sony VGN-S460 seems to have an inherent problem with their cpu fans. It is apparent that the fan uses a ball bearing system which over time becomes worn and causes the grinding sound.

The only solution is to replace the entire fan assembly as they are inseparable.

Vaio wont start, will most certainly need a new hard drive. My question is: Is it possible to install a better/faster one, in this model i mean.. someone told me that vaio is somehow quite standard..

Your hard drive is about to fail i would say. Also, check for dust or blockage in the cooling fan as this can cause the laptop to sometimes make horrid noises :S

One time cooling fan caused sony laptop to black out. right now, changing desktop picture caused cooling fan to start heating up. shut down some opened programs and it is all right. what is the problem?...

When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a can of compressed air to do this.

My Sony Vaio will suddenly shut down for no apparent reason, as if the battery had just been pulled out, sometime I need to take the battery out and put it back in before that laptop will switch back on....

Yes, is something you can fix. All you need to do is clean up the fan vents. You will need to do some dissemblance. This video gives you an idea how to do it.

Some tips the video doesn't show.
1) Never use a magnet screwdriver. This is a great hazard for your pc.

2) Make sure you work in a table with no cloth on it as this cna have static electricity, which is VERY bad for your pc.

3) Before you start with the pc discharge yourself of any static you might have. Just touch something that's touching the ground.

Hope this helps and fixes your problem. Remember to do this every few months. I do it every 6 to keep it nice and clean. After all dust has static electricity and that's not something I want inside my computers.

My problem with my Sony VGN-SZ330P is the fan, it producing some loud noises, sounds like its grinding something

You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

My sony VAIO laptop keeps making a clicking, rattling like sound and i want to kow how to stop it. It started happening because i left my laptop on a couch for an extended period of time. I read in forums...

sounds like the fan in your laptop is failing or is damaged, when you run graphic intensive applications and the fan turns on is that then you hear the noise if so it is your fan and you should see about getting it replaced because the components in your laptop will over heat and stop working.

Sony vaio laptop fan grinding noise. How to fix this?

If its in warranty, take it back to where you purchased from. If its out of warranty, then you can remove the base from the laptop and remove the fan - goto a store to buy a new fan (if possible) - otherwise attempt to fix. Could be the bearing on the fan thats gone.

If you try to fix yourself, make sure you observe anti-static precautions.
