Your avdice on the stepping number was great, I found a company through Google that was selling my CPU for $119 - way cheaper than the Sony part Number. The stepping number is SL64Z. It must be rare though, I went to intel's site and did a search, and only found one obcsure reference to the CPU. It referred to intel part no RH80530GD006512. Not sure where Sony got RH80530GZ006512 from. So the part arrived today, I put it in and the laptop works great.

As for Sony, I bitched at them pretty good when they told me the price of the repair - $3717.40 for parts and $75 labour. (Prices in Canadian, I'm a Canuck). At least they gave me the laptop back without charging me anything for their time, but I won't be buying another Sony Laptop anytime soon. It was only two months out of warranty at the time.

Thank you very much.

P.S. You should use a different screen name when your in the forum. "Admin" is not so friendly.
