Sony Vaio shuts off on its own...lovely.

Okay, so I wrote last week how I put on my big girl panties and took back the netbook I bought. I still thing that was the best decision I have made in a long time. It was so not worth my money. Well, now I am back to using my Sony Vaio VGN-CS215J. Don't get me wrong, I love this laptop...but the thing has a mind of its own. It shuts down for no reason at all. Every time I post on a form about it, I get the same response...."it's over heating." I know this is not what is happening because I can have it shut down all day, turn it on, and 5 minutes into it being on...the thing shuts off. The screen goes black and off it goes. Sometimes I can turn it right back on, other times it has to sit...! It really is driving me crazy. I can hear the fans working in it...I have restored the whole thing....still shuts off. I have found that it shuts off when I am playing my game I am addicted to....Frontierville. I do not know if that has anything to do with it, but it seems to shut off more when I play that...but that is not the only time that it will shut off.

I really do not want to take it to someone because for the amount I put into getting this fixed I can get another computer. I do plan on getting a new computer, but I just have to wait til we get some extra money.

If anyone has any ideas for me...please please please post them. I really love my laptop...other then shutting off it works really nice and I have no complaints. Any ideas or even would be great!

For like 20 bucks you can get this little pad that you sit it on. It has extra fans and you just plug it into a USB port on your computer. My lappy gets HOT, but using the fan pad makes it a lot less HOT. that might help if it is turning off because it's truly too hot.
