Want to change video card in Sony VGC-RA842G

There is a black plastic bracket with a slot attached to the power supply that the video card is sitting in. I can't figure out how to remove the power supply to get the black bracket off the video card. I don't want to snap the bracket off as I'm not sure what it is attached to.

My Sony VGC-RB34G is suddenly showing nothing on monitor except a sign "Check Signal Cable". I have cleaned and put back RAM tight. The fan works, I hear beeps when computer starts but no pic. I...


The computer should beep ONCE when starting-up.
More than one BEEP implies either that the video-card is not responding, or that it is not fully "seated" in its slot.

Try a different video-card in your desktop.

Which video card i can get for gaming on this computer the vgc-rb53 vaio sony computer please help!!


You can fit any PCI Express X16 graphics card into your computer. The biggest issue that you may run into is power requirements. However, the majority of inexpensive graphics cards - ranging in prices under $80 - should be capable of gaming very well. If you're looking to go all out and make an investment in PC gaming, replacing the power supply will make the machine capable of using any video card. 1000 watt power supplies can be found online for around $100.

Dvd drive does not open


Try sticking a paper clip directly in the middle. Slowly, but hardly pull it back so the tray opens up all the way. Then once it's pulled back completely, press eject button and it should re-align itself back on track

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.)

Monitor reads no signal...


its not mobo...since it power up and you see the light indicator are processing ..to be sure ..when you turn on the pc..does the light for HDD is processing like blinking green/blue..if does..try to connect your monitor to other computer..if your monitor works..thats good..

if your video card is built in to mother board..the cause is one of the pin of the port is disconnected..you cannot fix this..but you can replace the video card by installing it to one of the expansion slot inside the computer...check what kind of interface for video card slot inside the computer (PCI, AGP,PCI express)..then buy that and install it. its plug and play

good luck

HELP! No video on Sony Vaio VGC-RA710G desktop


Since the power supply wasn't secured properly it actually contacted the motherboard while it was still carrying a charge. For next time, I use zap straps for all of my wires and to secure components. Try removing the motherboard and doing the power supply self test, most likely you will have to replace both the motherboard and CPU though.

VGC-RB50 Display Problem


I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I think that the MB or the processor just took a dive on you. Most likely the processor... as you are able to power up. If it were the memory or the video card, you would hear a series of beeps when trying to start the computer. And you already verified the monitor is fine.
