My viao laptop shuts down about 15-20 seconds after I turn it on. Any help is appreciated.

Sounds like it's over heating and doing a thermal shutdown. You could try blowing out the vents with a can of compressed air and see if that helps.


If not you can disassemble it and clean it out real well and add new thermal compung between the CPU and it's heatsink and the Video ship and it's heatsink. Also check to make sure the fan is running. This is not a simple job and it might be best to take it to a repair shop and let them look at it.
