Question about Sony Computers & Internet
First of all it does not power up with power button, but it does with the Assist button. Secondly even after shutdown, the battery light remains solid orange. The laptop also goes off within 10 minutes. I changed to a new battery, and cleaned the cooling fan and applied new heatsink compound. Still no change with the power button and orange light. The shutdown time has increased to 20 minutes, but it does go off by itself

Testimonial: "A brand new original battery was installed. It did not help."
The power switch might be damaged your cooling fan might not be working optimal. You might have to change both of them.
This happens when you laptoo receives a power surge usually the power supply would be damaged, but if not, then the results are what you have.

I hope that you did not burn the chip of the CPU... The first quick fix is going to be that you go to the local junk shop and buy some of the heat conducting compound. You, very carefully remove the CPU and follow the instructions of the compound package, you apply the compound. It is highly advisable that you construct a jury rigged bracelet with a wire attached and you put it on your wrist and ground yourself to a ground point on the computer. If you still have problems, I can still help you, but I will need to have certain info. Name of compter =Sony Vaio, model number, Motherboard ID and exactly your story, which you said very mice above, but I will not be able to get to it (it goes to the archives). I feel confident that you will be able to fix your computer... Thank you for considering our service...

go to your task barat the bottom of the screen and look for the mini icon of the battery with a ac power plug right click it and go to more power options and brows through there there should be an option to change the power settings and you need to make sure that when on ac power it is set not to power down or sleep or shut off hard drive. if you need more information let me know what Operating system you are using and i can be a little more detailed

I was going to suggest overheating before I read your own diagnosis; Yes, sound like the fan, but you can check by opening up and watching it. Or install temperature monitoring software such as Speefan;
If it is the fan it may well be that there is only one possible replacement - officially. But it is usually possible to cannibalize something cheaper to suit your purpose!

That is not normal definitely your battery has some problem and needs a replacement because a normal working battery should last for about 2 hours or more..
Hope that helps........
