My mother-in-law has a Sony Vaio VGC-JS450F All-In-One Desktop computer and it has some severe overheating issues. While idle it is fine and has been running for a full day just sitting there. Whenever someone tries to use it, the system gradually gets hotter and hotter and finally cuts itself off. I've fully cleaned all the fans and reapplied thermal grease where needed and both of the fans are fully functional. I've updated the Bios to the most current version. I'm at a complete loss and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Very nice program thanks for letting me know about it. The graphics card is hotter than everything else. Is that an issue?

EDIT: Set the computer to play a video and upon watching the temp the graphics card is slowly but surely making it's way to the critical temp. The other temperatures are holding at or around the same.

Might just wanna check this http://apcmag.com/sony-vaio-notebooks-suffer-from-faulty-nvidia-gpus.htm and ask Sony if the laptop model is included.

Thanks for the reply, I read this and contacted Sony. The faulty GPU models do not include the one for the computer in question.

Inevitably it will fail so might wanna see if the fan is up to the task and re-apply some gpu thermal paste.
