Need power-switch pin-out for Sony VAIO PCV-RX470DS

My old computer, the Sony VAIO PCV-RX470DS, needs a modern mobo and memory. I can install those w/o problem, but I need to understand the power switch pin-out so I can rewire it to the appropriate pins on the new mobo. The switch assembly includes a LED for power on and a LED for HDD running. Power switch is on a small circuit bd marked SWX-66, rev 1.01. The wiring harness is labeled FoxconnCO114 and 1-959-913-21. Any help much appreciated.

Is there a current motherboard that will fit in a Sony Vaio pcv-RZ22g case to replace an old Asus P4S533 motherboard?


Desktop computer cases have mountings that suit the majority of motherboards.
You most like need a new switch mode power supply as the existion one won't have the correct power connectors and won't supply enough power.

I have added 256MB memory to my Sony PCV-RX470DS desktop but it still only shows 256MB that was already installed. Do I need to change anything in BIOS or make any kind of hardware change via jumpers or...


You may need to re-seat the memory module.

Shutdown your PC, remove the newly added memory module. and re-plug it back in, this time when you install it make sure you hear a click noise when installing it to ensure its properly installed.

I doubt you need to update the BIOS to support more memory.

Otherwise you may have a dud memory module.

When installing/removing memory ensure you are properly earthed so that you don't zap and kill the memory.
