How old is my Vaio PCG-61212W?

We have a PCG-61212W that runs extremely hot - the fan is running high speed and blowing out hot air even when idling.  How old is this unit?  Any suggestions beside cleaning the fan/ducts and re-applying the heat sink paste?  Thanks!

Hi Gregs70,


Welcome to Sony Community!


Kindly double check the model number of your laptop. The PCG-61212W wasn't recognized by our system. Can you also tell us what is the current operating system of your laptop?

The lid and keyboard say it is a Vaio.  The plate on the left side of the bottom says "Sony Personal Computer 19.5V" on upper left corner and "Model PCG-61612W" on the upper right.  The bottom right has "4-258-229-11".  There is a white tag with a serial number on top with 27518883 plus another string of numbers on top, and  Service TAG C60803PQ below.


It originally had Windows 7 Home, now it has Windows 10.  


Hope this helps!
