Question about Sony VAIO VGC-RB42G PC Desktop

1 Answer

I think my motherboard needs replaced.

My computer is freezing up randomly. In games, on the web, while doing nothing. It is also randomly having problems recognizing usb drives, SD drives, Compact Flash drives, etc. I need to re-boot several times before Windows finally opens up.

Heres a program for that

You will need to burn the Iso to a cd, let me know if you need help with that.

Stress your memory for a hour or as long as you wish with this tool and see if errors come up?

You possibly have

  • Faulty memory Or
  • Faulty powersupply Or
  • Faulty motherboard
Theres also bootcd with multiple programs you can use to test your hardware

Do you have the latest version of web browser (you don't say what you use) installed in the computer? If not do that first to see if that clears up the problem. Also delete cookies and web browser history.

Well, i was playing World of Warcraft today, and randomly everything started lagging pretty hard, so i restarted my cpu, and now i can't even been on for 5 minutes without the computer freezing up...


if you keep reset on to your CPU this will affect to your Hard Drive. When your online games WOW very lag then do not let that online game on play to your Computer. You know or maybe your Computer are not enough to run this game. Check all the plug in play device which are capable to run this game. Your VGA Compatibility e.i AGP or PCI-E, Memory speed e.i DD1, DD2 & DDR3 and mostly Games Accelerator Programs.
Hope this tip might help you.
Good luck!

My computer constantly freezes on random occasions. I think it has something to do with my mother board witch is a ASUS K8V Deluxe


Is it the fan attached to the inside on the back?
That is the chassis fan that is not spinning. You need to replace it because the unit needs that additional cooling. It is easy to replace (4 screws). Your local computer store should carry it.
Don't let the PC freeze too much longer, it may cause major problems.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Game crashing


when the computer starts- click START - RUN - type MSCONFIG in the text box - select the startup tab at the top- uncheck all boxes but your virus protection and ones having to do with your mouse and keyboard. hit apply and ok - reboot.
run the game and see if the freezes continue.
