BIOS Update for “VAIO Personal Computer VPCF11 series”


    Dear Valued Sony VAIO Customers,

    Recently, we became aware of a potential issue affecting VAIO notebook models VPCF115FG, VPCF116FG and VPCF117HG, available on the Australian market since January 2010.

    In rare cases, these notebook computers can overheat due to a potential malfunction of the internal temperature management system.
