I am in the same situation. Hello, I am having trouble with my VAIO SX14 Laptop.
There is a problem with the screen flashing after a number of hours depending on how "hard" it is working. The Vaio Tech shop supposedly replaced the Mother Board, they said the cooling fan was not working properly and the GPU was overheating.
Well, it is still doing the same thing, now they suggest I do a system RESET which should keep all my personal files. However, it will delete all of my programs including my Video Editing, Adobe programs, Microsoft Office, and so on.
If I do the reset and I leave the laptop running for a day or two and the flashing does not happen anymore, I could re-install all of my software which would be a real pain in the you-know-what. But it would be fixed. However, if I do the reset and the flashing starts again just like it was, I could restore the image and would have not lost anything.
