Well guys, I have a Sony Vaio VGN-CR520D and recently I've reinstalled Microsoft Windows Vista. I have already updated everything I could trying to fix my problem which is the computer shutting down automatically without any notice whatsoever. Simply shuts and when I power on again, it starts as if nothing abnormal had happened. Weird, no warnings upon logon or after.

At first I thought It was a problem with ISBMgr.exe, which I disabled from windows startup. Didn't fix, but if I enable it again, a box pops up saying that my battery is not propperly conected or malfuncioning, which is absurd since it's a new and original battery. Anyway.. I still haven't found a way to update ISBMgr.exe IF the problem is that.

I also have run combofix, but can't say by the report if theres any registry errors...

So, can anyone land a helping hand to this matter? I appreciate.


Best regards,
Wilhelm

PS - If there's any need for the combofix report I could paste for your review, thanks.

Usually when a computer shuts down to a blank screen with no warning or error messages, overheating is the cause
Buy a can of compressed air
Direct the nozzle into the vent holes on the side/back and on the bottom of the laptop
See if that helps

Hello

I have a Vaio Computer that is doing exactly the same thing......shutting down for no reason.

Is spraying the can of compressed air the only way to fix an overheating problem???

Thankyou to all who respond.

start-->control panel-->system-->advanced tab-->click settings under startup and recover-->uncheck the box to automatically restart under system failure section.

That will allow you to see the message on the BSOD. Look for the message with underscores ...That will point in the right direction.

I also have the same problem though it occured about a month ago. It would just shutdown automatically even if i just turned on my laptop about 2 minutes. Sometimes it would restart after everything has loaded. Happened about thrice to my laptop Sony Vaio VGN-CS26G. Right now it doesn't happen anymore but still scared it would happen next time. So it's not a problem with overheating... no notices popup before it shutsdown... i wonder if it's just Sony

Here is another problem (attached picture) i encountered once.

Did you run the Vista Upgrade advisor to verify that your lap top could run Vista?

sorry for the late reply. MyVGN-CS26G Vaio laptop came with Windows Vista Home Premium. Not sure if the wifi problem is with my router or my laptop but i noticed my Mac can connect to the router without it bein disconnected unlike this one; seems like the router resets whenver i connect with this vaio

In case no one has noticed, the original poster StrikNone has not made a reply. Remember who you are helping when you give advice....

kyrnx, please create your own topic as your problem and solution will most likely be different than what might be found for the original poster (if they come back). "Hijacking" another person's topic is frowned upon and only causes confusion, so please create your own Posted Image. Thanks and have a nice day. :huh:
