Hi, I bought a Sony VAIO VPCEA1Z1E/B laptop from an 3rd party seller (www.laptopsdirect.co.uk) near 2 years ago and I'm now starting to want to discuss some issues or be helped in some way.
The first would be the fan noise. Sometimes the fan likes to suddenly go mental and make a very loud noise from time to time. I don't mind it when it's gaming or playing video and that's understandable. But sometimes it just does it randomly when there very little going on in the applications of processing. Gets a little embarrassing when I'm in class and it just goes mental in a quiet environment with other students and the teacher looking my way (:/). What can be done to solve this? Has the inside of the laptop accumulated so much dust it struggles to do heavy performance or sometime nothing at all? I can't remember how low it's been going on for though. Or is there another explanation to which can be dealt with?
The second issue would be me wanting to wipe the hard drive to a fresh install of Windows. But I don't have a disc with all the original sony software like Gate, Assist, Control Center, etc, etc that comes pre-installed and I can't find any source of the programs online. Could somebody help me there?
Right now I'm on a desktop listening to the laptop doing a virus scan and the fan going mental, then I guess it may reach its target temperature, settles down for about 4 seconds then goes mental again. Does this every 3-4 minutes and the scans been going for 2 hours 45 minutes.
Any help is appreciated
