Question about Sony VAIO VGC-RB50 PC Desktop
Specs: Sony VAIO VGC-RB50 Desktop, Win XP
I've been having trouble with my PC since I bought it where it randomly chooses not to detect something plugged into my computer. Sometimes it refuses to see a memory card, sometimes a jump drive, sometimes an external hard drive, and sometimes it won't see anything but itself at all. The only solution we have is to reboot, reboot, reboot until the computer cooperates.
Every time we send it in for tech support, they seem to be satisfied when they get it to work once and give it back to us. Now the warranty has expired and we don't have the spare cash to keep sending it in to be "fixed". If we could afford a new computer, we would simply buy one, but right now we're stuck with what we have.
Is there anything we can do to at least increase the frequency of it detecting the devices so we don't have to spend all afternoon rebooting and getting frustrated?

In my first post I stated I had just had the power supply replaced. The lights do come on inside the computer so it's getting power, it just won't turn on.

Do you mean Reset button?
Computers these days do not have Reset buttons. What you can do is hold the power button on for about 5 seconds and the computer will shut down. Press it again and the computer will boot up again.
If this is not what you mean, please explain futher.
Thanks for using Fixya.
