Question about Sony VAIO PCV-RS710G PC Desktop

1 Answer

Can I add another monitor with (dvi) output to this computer?

I have Sony Vaio PCV-RS710G and been happy using it with the sony original monitor (17"). Now I want to try dual monitor setup. I noticed that on the back of the computer, there is dvi port on the graphic card it came with the computer. Does this mean that I can hook up one more monitor to it (dvi port) and have two moniotors working in dual mode?

OR do I need to buy a graphic card that supports two monitors?

Thank you for your answers in advance,
Alex

My Sony Vaio PCV J100 turns on but no nothing comes on the screen/monitor. I have checked the monitor but it works fine on other computers. What could be the problem?


If your monitor works fine on another computer then most possibly its your video card since you said nothing comes on. Usually if its the operating system you should see the computer info before it goes to a blank screen. If you have an add on video card try using the integrated video card or vise versa. You can also use a known good video card from another computer.

I want to switch it my monitor from HD15 Mode to DVI on my VGC RB52


Assuming you have not already upgraded the system, you will need to add a video card with DVI output to your computer. You need a PCI-e x16 card and to make sure to either upgrade your power supply or choose a card that will not exceed the power supply's capacity. The original Power supply provided 305W (max.).

The alternative is to simply attach a DVI to VGA converter and stick with the on-board VGA only output but send it through the DVI port on the monitor.

I hope this helps.

(you should pay attention to heat issues if you add a video card; I've generally found that ATI cards run a bit cooler than nVidia cards for the same generation/performance.)

You can resolve this issue by downloading the vinyl_v700b.zip file and running the setup. This program will install the correct codecs and drivers for the onboard sound. Worked for me!!! Sony support / sony website was of NO help at all!

Sony Vaio PCV-RS710G wont start up


one of the files in the system32 directory in the windows folder is corrupt, the files in the system32 folder contains vital files for the boot procedure, try to start the machine in "safe mode" by pressing F8 after the sony boot screen, if it allows you into the operating system you will need to choose "system Restore" take the time back to at least a week before your problems started DO NOT CREATE A RESTORE POINT

Sony vaio pcv-rs420 power supply


tpically yes you can locate the number on your old power supply that represent the type and output and order a replacement at places like this link http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Description=power+supply
or perhaps if there is a computer repair place close, sometimes they have used ones from computers that has died
