If you go to this website it will show you how to change it yourself. It depends where you live, how much the materials cost, and how much the pc repair will charge. So it wouldn't do you any good to get a quote from someone who lives 500 miles away. Just find a pc repair shop and give them a call or fix it yourself per the website. You should be able to find inverters on the web. Good Luck.

Sony vaio pcv 6603 driver


There are usually two numbers that Sony uses, one internally and one for martketing, If you look on your machine you should find a different number to search the Sony.com support site for. In your case I think your other number is PCV-V1 and it is a European model, which isn't found on the US site. Here is a link to the UK site downloads and software for this machine http://www.sony.co.uk/support/en/product/pcv-v1
So the general advice is; go to the company's Support/Downloads/Drivers site for the country or region you purchased it in, and if one model number doesn't work, then look for another model number on your machine

Vaio PCV-W30- The computer stops at the blue Windows XP screen and will not load Windows. The DVD drive will not open. Cant do a restore. Any suggestions?


Should be a small hole in DVD drive lid.
Turn off computer and carefully insert a straightened paper clip.
Gently push & the lid should pop out.
Then you can open the drive & use the windows cd to repair/restore

Sony Vaio PCV-W30 uses sis 650_651_740 driver but on restart the graphics are horrible. If I uninstall;then re-install, the graphics work well - until another restart. No new drivers for 7 on their site,...


Have you tried simply running a windows update to make sure you have the most current drivers available that way? I have found the preloaded driver database is massive, but usually whatever the initial install misses the update picks up. Hope this helps.

Good Luck,

How to upgrade RAM memory what to buy and is anything else be upgraded before this


It is a very simple thing to upgrade your Ram which is a great idea since you have only 512 MB. I suggest you buy at least 1 GB or more if you can afford it. Go to the link I am posting and let them scan your computer. They will tell you exactly what you can install and the price. This is a reputable site I use all the time. This will require a download of the scanner tool which is perfectly safe. http://www.crucial.com/

NO SYSTEM RECOVERY IS WORKING on my Sony PCV-RS530G Windows XP


First get the trogen,malware or virus out, it is more than likelly causing the problem. Make sure you have a good virus program, I had one similar and most virus programs won't take it out or even show some of the latest bugs. Tech support is a waste of time for the most part, was your restore turned off?, Boot into safe mode, and run a spybot search and destroy, and AVG- free virus program that you can get on their site and download the program perhaps with another machine. Otherwise there are "DOS" commands that you can try, it could be the MBR, a corrupted file,or many other things. But if it happened suddenlly, chances are some kind of bug got in, you also are going to need a bootable Operating System Disk if this stuff dosen't work. good luck
