Removing cover on a Sony pvc 2242.

Hello sir,
I am trying to upgrade my sound card, video card and add more ram. After removing three screws on the back, I still can't get the cover off. So, what else do I need to do?

Thanks,
Dan

Are the screws on the left rear edge of the case? If so, those should be the ones. Sometimes it takes quite a bit of force to slide the cover back. You might have to slip a screwdriver in the gap at the front of the cover and pry a little.

Does no show display and bios beeps once then three time then three more time then again once more.


Hi,
Regarding the Beep codes try removing the Memory Rams one at a time and see if the computer will turn On properly with 1 RAM at a time, if you have an expansion video card, try removing the video card and use the internal video on the motherboard see if it will boot without any errors.
What you are experiencing is a no POST issue, you do not see the BIOS as you mentioned,remove anything expansion on the motherboard and do the RAM Dance, try One RAM at a time as mentioned and try each RAM on all the Memory RAM slots Available to find out if it will be a RAM causing the issue or possible a bad Memory Slot on the Motherboard.

My dell optiplex doesn't boot... but i can hear the sound (not beeping) and the spinning hard disk. Nothing is in the screen. I tried removing and exchanging RAM but didn't work.


Hello,

The possible causes that can cause a PC not to boot are:

  1. Defective RAM
  2. Defective Video Card
  3. Defective HDD
  4. BIOS battery
For the RAM and for the video card, check if they are well clipped on the motherboard. Try removing and replacing them.

As for the HDD, check the SATA/IDE cables.

If all the steps above seems to be ok, try changing the BIOS battery found on your motherboard.(Note this will reset your BIOS settings).

Hope this helps you !!

6 beeps with regular intervals , a short puase and it repeats.. nothing comes out on screen and com does not boot..


As stated above, you can try removing the Memory and re-seating the Memory cards.

However, 6 Beeps indicates an issue with the Video Card. If your computer is configured with a Video Card, try removing and re-seating it by following the instructions provided in the Manual. You can access the Service Manual for Studio XPS 8100 from the link below:

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/studio8100/en/index.htm

If the issue is not resolved even with re-seating the Video card, you need to check with the Warranty of the computer with Dell and get if it is under warranty, get a replacement Graphic Card.

All the Best.

I need to insatll a new memory card in my sony VGC-V517G computer how do I open it up?


Sony eSupport>VAIO VGC-V517G>Manuals,

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=VGCV517G

On this page l would like you to left-click on - VAIO User Guide, under the Manuals heading.

A small window will pop up on the left side of the screen. It took almost 30 seconds before I saw the first page. The screen was white in the meantime.
(PDF file is downloading in the background)

In the Bookmarks to the left, scroll down to -
Upgrading and Maintaining Your VAIO Computer, and left-click on the + sign to expand the file.

Left-click on Installing Memory.
(Page 91)

Page 92 has details, and illustrations, on removing the computer back cover.

Barring something prevents you from downloading this PDF file;

1) Computer off, and unplugged from power.

2) Observe Anti-Static precautions

[Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the hardware components inside a computer.

Computer unplugged from power, computer on a table, computer case open, TOUCH an unpainted surface of the metal frame.

This will relieve your body of Static.

Should you get up, and walk away in the middle of working on your computer, upon your return Touch the metal frame again ]

3) Disconnect any Peripheral devices connected to your computer.

Advise lay a clean towel on the table.
Gently lay the computer down on the towel, LCD screen face down.

4) Slide the back cover towards the top of the LCD screen.
It will only slide up so far, then the top of the back cover, is tilted towards the back of the computer, and lifted off.
Set the back cover aside.

5) Back of the computer towards you, the Ram Memory Cover is on the Right side.

The cover looks like a panel. It is rectangular shaped. There are two screws holding the cover on. Remove these two screws, lift the Memory Cover off.

The Ram Memory modules are right there.

Need further guidance in removing and installing ram memory modules, state in a Comment.

I have a sony vgc-rb30 I get 3 beeps when I power up. I have no video output, and the only peripheral that seems to work is the keyboard (at least the lights are on) I can't seem to find a motherboard...


The problem is exactly with your RAM sir , the 3 beep sound is an intimation of RAM not detection from the BIOS , i will tell the procedure to fix the RAM , if you know to remove the side cover of the machine remove it by opening the back side screws, in the mother board you can see a vertically fixed chip is called RAM , the RAM is locked with the white color notch at the both ends of RAM , if you release that lock you can get the RAM separately, after it you, have to rub the contacts of the RAM to clean the fungus layer on the contacts, after that fix the RAM again by watching the small cut in the RAM , if you not getting the display than this have to replace the RAM only sir , this is the picture of the RAM , don't forget to vote for meaf7dbe8.jpg

Three beeps at start up virus maybe?


no, more like loose or defective memory, or add-in cards. Take the machine down, remove the side cover, and make sure all the cards are pushed into the slots snugly, and make sure the ram chips are seated securely. Also, make certain that your vga monitor cable is secured into the port and not pulling out. (3 beeps usually means video fault).

I want to add RAM, but I haven't yet found the slots. Can someone tell me where they are?


The slot will be on the bottom (the part of the laptop that sits on the desk). Remove the screw(s) that are holding the cover and you will see the existing RAM (usually a green module about 2 inches in length).
