I have a Sony Vaio 12 gig, Windows ME, I did the memory upgrade to 252 MB Ram, but it has an AMD processor. It gets HOT!! I had the cooling fan replaced twice and now it is running but it locks up when doing long tasks. Like I tried to do a defrag and when it got to 10% it locked. Reboot, scan disk, try again, same thing.
Went to safe mode and it finished the defrag. I was so happy, I tried it again in reg mode. It locked up again but this time at 90%
I am not happy with this computer at all. I don't use it much but I bought to run a navigation software program and it is a program designed to run on 95 so it doesn't require much. I have removed a lot of programs but it still heats up.
What do you suggest?
