    Yet another overheating drama has struck Sony's laptop subdivision. As of today a potential overheating issue has been discovered in the following notebook PC models:


    • VGN-TZ100 series
    • VGN-TZ200 series
    • VGN-TZ300 series
    • VGN-TZ2000 series
    The issue involves a small number of units which may overheat due to a wiring problem. Sony has initiated a voluntary program to perform a free inspection and, if necessary, a repair to ensure these units meet our high quality standards. To find out if your VAIO TZ notebook is one of the affected units, please visit this link here. After a quick check of the product code and the serial number located on the bottom of your notebook, you'll know whether to worry or not. Please follow the information found here if your laptop is affected.
