    I need a little help here from someone more knowledgable than me. I have a
    Sony Vaio F540 computer running Windows 98 SE. Yesterday out of the blue it
    started powering off as soon as Window's desktop came on the screen. When it
    powered off, it then would not power on at all with the power cord. SO... I
    put in the battery and suddenly I had power up, but then it would power down as
    soon as desktop came up. I then tried with the battery powering up in safe
    mode, no problem at all. Came on and stayed on. Hmmm???? I took it apart, (I
    have come to know the internal organs of this computer very well) I then
    turned it on, while I could see what all was happening. The fan NEVER did come
    on, but still there was not problem powering up in safe mode, even without the
    fan ever coming on. I figured the fan might be thermostatically controled and
    it never got hot enough to come on. Not sure about that one. Anyway, I need
    some advise here on this problem.
