Question about Sony VAIO PCV-RS312V PC Desktop

Questionable UPDATE install on PC

It has been around three weeks, my desktop computer Sony VAIO Model PCV-RS210 will install 1 UPDATE (software) every time after I signed off. I know it was not the update from Norton, Windows, or other update I downloaded from the internet. This PC has the Norton Internal Security Software. Is the UPDATE a virus (someone is obtaining information)? If yes, how can I remove it? Thanks

    Thanks for the suggestion. I tried the housecall65 and it did not fix the auto update when I sign off.

Not sure what the update could be, but to very its not a virus, try this FREE online tool. It is EXTREMELY good and removes viruses and malware that even Norton cannot. Remember to do a full system scan. May take a while, but is well worth it:

Does my sony vaio pcv-rz50cg have pci express slot?


From the information available on the Sony eSupport web site for this discontinued model of Sony Vaio, it seems unlikely that it would have a pci express slot given the model dates back to around 2004 and may not have any free expansion card slots depending on the exact multimedia options that are installed.

Need a BIOS update for a Sony VAIO PCV-RZ49 (T99861234) PC Desktop Sony provides nothing.


Why do you need to update your BIOS? There may not be an update for your product, as not every BIOS has updates, that depends on the manufacturer. I hope this helped. Good lusk and have a pleasant day.

Sony vaio PCV-RS720G starts and runs just fine but when it requires a restart it goes to the VAIO screen and will not continue the load. If I power it off and let stand for 15 sec and repower it will load...


there is a software you installed in your system that might mislead some dll to function restart. try to removed some recent software you installed, do it at once. but first try to update your antivirus and scan the system.
