Wireless lan won't work on sony vaio vcg-rb43 after disk restore


Go to Windows Updates and see if there is an update their sometimes that happens with drivers. Start there Updates and install all the updates hardware updates as well. If that does not assist you there may be a fix at the Sony Vaio support drivers and download for your driver start there. I would download the driver online for the wireless software. Click Here to go to the driver site enter your model and info they request and download whatever you need from there. This should get you up and running again. I hope that this assisted you. Note download the Network anything that has to do with wireless Lan John

I have a five year old Sony VAIO VCG RB42G desk top computer. It does not boot, instead I get a boot message (in DOS?) telling me to reboot or insert reboot media. I tried to insert recovery dvd, but dvd...


If you are not able to get the disc tray to open itself, you can manually open it before starting the computer by pressing a paperclip into the tiny hole on the front. This manually releases the tray. Then start it up, and try to enter the BIOS setup by pressing F2. In the BIOS setup, make sure that the bootup priority is set to the CDROM drive. Restart, and hope for the best! :)

VCG-RB52 PROBLEM NEED HELP IMMEDATLY!!


The OS was corrupted, more exactly the file system. Recover all your files using a Linux Live-CD like http://pclinuxos.com . It's an OS running from a cd, not from the hard disk.
After that you can either reinstall Windows or attempt to fix the file system - this will be complicated and requires a lot of software knowledge.

Replacing the powersupply on a Sony VAIO PCV-RS720G desktop


Hi There,

From the looks of things that model will take a standard ATX power supply which would be available from and computer part dealer and ebay etc, get yourself a nice 400w replacement try and get a small form factor one if you can as it will be a tight sqeeze inside the case.

when replacing it you will have to open the case up (get an anti static wristband if you can, and work on a table rather that a carpeted floor) un hook all the connectors the old power supply (one in each drive and there should be 2 in the motherboard) you may have to pull the Dvd rom out slightly to get the new supply in, unscrew the 4 case screws holding the power supply from the back of the case. lift it out then put in the new one, screw it in using the case screws and connect up the internal power cables to the drives motherboard and new graphics card, close the case, plug in and voila

If you get stuck just ask and we will help

CD/DVD ENCLOSURE in Sony Vaio PCV RX860


http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/tutorial-display.pl?tut_id=269&mdl=PCVRX860
this link is a tutorial of how to get the side panel off,
to get the cd drive out, you need to do a couple more steps.

first, you will need to take off the top and other side panels. this can be done by looking at the top back of the case. there are two clips that hold the top panel on. push up on the two clips and the top part will slide back and you can pull up on the panel and it should come off.

Next, you should be able to push some more clips on the top to get the side panel off. it should fold down just like the first side.

then, you need to take off the front two panels. the bottom part should be just a couple clips on the inside front of the case, and the top clips will be revealed when you take off the bottom part.

after that is done, you should be able to unscrew the cd/dvd drive from the case and unplug the cables connected to it from the top where you removed the top panel.

then you should be done
