Re: Power Supply not working

Do you have the User's Manual? Here is a link to that User Manual, but it looks to be in a proprietary format (.chm) that must be downloaded to the Sony PC in order to view (rather dumb, I think, but that's Sony for you!). I could not find any other information about this unit other than what I found on the Sony website. Good Luck!

The computer suddenly shut off and will not turn back on. I assume the power supply is shot. The computer was kept on constantly, and was seldom shut down. I have opened up the case and it is extremely...

there are two posibilities...
1 ur power supply is out, to check if ur power supply is OK, check if fan on power supply is running when u switch on the PC, if it works then that's OK
2 - ur motherboard is out, if this is the case ur CPU fan will not work but ur power supply fan will work

to check both u may have to open the PC

Computer powers ok from one location but not in another

Try and replace both power supply's with higher volt supplies.
Those are too low requirements to hold up those computers.
Get two higher voltage power supplys.

Freeeeeeeze problem

Sounds like you may have a bad power supply. It's a cheap fix, abd always a good upgrade. I recommend at least a 400 watt power supply.

Try unplugging components one by one (disk drive power, CD power, video cards, etc) with the system unplugged and see if the fan speeds up when you restart it. Note than when you remove certain cards, video for example, you may get beep codes. 


Everything in a slot on your PC shares a common power bus so any card installed may be pulling too much load on your power supply. Pull em one by one re-starting between each one.


If this doesn't locate the fault, check the power plugs to your disk/cd drives and ensure that you are getting 12VDC between the yellow and black wires and 5VDC between the red and black wires.  If you are not, and you have already pulled all cards/drives, you have either a defective power supply or your motherboard is drawing too much current.  In the last case, pull your memory cards one by one and re-start between each pull.

YOu will get memory size errors if you let the boot procedure go too far but all you want is for the fan to go.


You  can accurately pinpoint POST errors with a POST diagnostics board available at most PC shops. It comes with a code manual.

Can't start my computer

It sounds like you have a bad power supply. If you can use a different one that you know is good, then you will know for sure, but it definitley sounds like a bad power supply. Hope this helps you.
