Question about Sony VAIO PCV-W500GN1 PC Desktop
I got this Sony PCV-W500GN1 desktop for 6 years. If I turn it on, it makes a noise like its exerting effort. Likewise it doesn't stay long after I turn it on it just suddenly turn off by itself. I can't turn it on again unless I unplugged the power chord from the power supply outlet. I want to open the casing to see what's wrong inside but it's so closely packed that I can't figure out how to do it. I would appreciate any help you could offer to help me with this problem.
Could be one of two most common problems?
Have you ever replaced the CPU Cooler (Heatsink/fan)?
CPU Cooler fan may be working, Heatsink dirty.
CPU is over-heating = mainboard turns off
Replace CPU Cooler
Power Supply fan not working causing partial failure on 5volt or 12volt side.
Replace Power Supply
There are more causes but these are most common for short-time boot problems.
Another could be hard-drive, but that wouldn't shut system down like first two would.
