More than half a million Sony laptops sold this year contain a software bug that could lead them to overheat, the company said Wednesday (June 30).

Sony has recorded 39 cases of overheating among Vaio F and C series laptops that have been on sale since January. A bug in the heat management system of the BIOS software is to blame. Sony is asking users to either update the software themselves or return their laptops so it can apply the update.

The fault affects 535,000 computers although Sony is asking a total of 646,000 owners to update their machines. The problem affects machines sold both in Japan and the rest of the world.
