Hardware Monitor Problem Sony Vaio

Hello Jaranya,

Here is the info under Power hardware monitor.

MB tempeature 28.5 C/83 F
CPU Temp 41 C/105 F

CPU Fan 4440 RPM's
Power Fan N/A

VCORE Voltage 1.7 V
+3.3V Voltage 3.3V
+5V Voltage 4.9V
+12V Voltage 11.5V
-12V Voltage -11.7V

That is all it says in the Hardware monitor Menu

I have a CD/RW drive and a DVD-RW drive those 2 are on the same IDE cable, then I have a hard drive that is on its own IDE cable. Other than that the only hardware that is connected to my computer is a modem and a video card. I am not using the modem I guess I could take that out and eliminate that, but I don't see it being that. Hope you can help

Thank You

My Sony VAIO VGC-LV240J/S desktop monitor does not turn on. All the lights turn on but not the screen. The "HDMI" light does not turn off either. Help please. I only had it a few months before...

I encountered this problem with my HP laptop I brought it to the HP repair center because it is under warranty and then they replaced the LCD monitor - it worked, please contact your Hardware IT Technician.

Bro it occurred that your system hardware has experience a low power supply wattages that cannot support your entire system hardware wattages requirements. Better change your present power supply into a higher power supply wattages.

Hardware monitor error


Sounds like loose connection on your monitor card, if installed seperately, otherwise the wrong drivers installed.

Boot up in safe mode and uninstall the monitor drivers. and try and boot again.

Let me know if need further help.

I installed a new power supply when i push the power button yhe monitor comes on for 5 seconds and then goes black

So could you please tell me what exactly was wrong with your previous power supply. I know it wud sound bad to you but sometimes faulty power supply causes permanent damage in your other hardware. So may be try to remove one hardware at a time and try to restart your PC without that hardware. If you would have same problem then install that hardware and try it with another one.
When you start your computer just start with basic hardware i mean only with keyboard, mouse , monitor and power supply.
But before anything please make sure your new power supply is giving right voltage and you have applied all connection. Some motheboard have special 4pin port for your CPU fan and for those motheboard you need a power supply with four pin wire only for ur CPU fan. Make sure your CPU fan is running. If not then you need that power supply
see these images

If you are not sure please call any computer technician or take your power supply to him to check output voltage.

Good luck and hope it helps !!

Hardware monitor found an error

Diagnosis: Lack of P.S.U. fan speed report indicates P.S.U. fan sensor damaged by overheating. This was caused by cooling fin blockage since the Sony design on this model cools the C.P.U. THROUGH the P.S.U.
Expert level fix: Remove P.S.U. Remove C.P.U. fan and vacuum. Remove C.P.U. cooling fins from C.P.U. and cooling fan mounts from fin box, vacuum. Reassemble C.P.U cooling system. Replace P.S.U. with O.E.M. part only since in this case it is proprietary to the unit.

Computer turns on, but does not boot to XP

Generally, fans are controlled by heat readings...something to check is the operating temperature that is shown in your BIOS when you boot up...(access your BIOS by tapping on the delete key, or F2 key while booting)..if it goes over 70C real quick then there is a CPU heat dissipation problem, which would cause the fan to run like this i think that it is more of an issue that your CPU died...has your machine taken any kind of hit or fall that might have loosened things?...or perhaps the heat sink compound between the heatsink and CPU failed.....
but it also could be a dead MB

Help please, hardware monitor found an error

Hi havinthangs,

Have you tried ignoring the monitor error, that is pressing F1?

Additionally, you can try, use a separate power connector for the DVD drive not piggybacked to the one used by the HD. If your drives are SATA, double check on the power adapter. If your DVD is external and USB connected, check its own power supply. Further you may want to un-check the Auto Power OFF in Power Management for USBs.

If you think the problem is PSU related, you can try lowering your BIOS/CMOS settings down to Default and not Optimized.

Of course the next best try would be to use a another PSU preferably with a higher wattage.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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.
