    Sony Vaio Pro 13 BSOD (I think)


    Hi all,

    I have just recently got myself a Sony Vaio Pro 13 and I think I am having issues in regards to a BSOD. The symptoms seem to be related to power/standby but could be wrong.

    Yesterday, I shut the lid and went away. Got back from lunch and realised the fan was on full-speed while the lid was down. On opening up the lid, blank screen and only way to get out of it was a holding the power button.

    And same thing happened last night. The difference this time was that I had a message on-screen saying my pc had shutdown unexpectedly etc.

    I'm running Windows 8 pro 64bit and having followed the instructions on the forum in regards to logs, I have attached these for your reference.

    Appreciate any help in identifying the culprit.

    Thanks
    AJ

    Disable Fast Startup and see if the problems continue: Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

    The reports are incomplete. Please rerun the data collection app and let it run for at least 15 minutes (or until the app itself says it's done). Then zip up the reports and upload them again.

    Thanks for the response. I don't think it is fast start causing it as the laptop is not in a shutdown state but sleep state. Having said that, I disabled it anyway to test it but 2-3am, same issue.

    On top of this, having then turned it off using the switch/hold down for a few seconds as I did not want to wake up at that time to investigate, it then turned itself on again in it's case which was in a bag while I drove to work. Nothing could have nudged the switch so its' not that but as you can imagine, we're in a heatwave at the moment so to say the laptop was HOT by the time I got it out of the case at work is not even close to what it was.

    I think I'll do a full format tonight and see if it happens again.
