Question about Sony VAIO RB30C (VGCRB30) PC Desktop

Hi, I cannot turn on my old desktop. It has not

Hi, I cannot turn on my old desktop. It has not been used for a while. However, now when i try to connect it, it gives an alarm beep and then it turns off. In the meantime the sb pwr light keeps on green. I've tried to clean the fans and checked all the connections and cables inside, I've changed the location of the RAM as well (as I read one beep might be related to that), but so far nothing. Does anyone know what this might be due? Is is something I might be able to fix from home or will I need an IT technician? Thanks in advance

How many beeps exactly is it giving?

Posted on Oct 21, 2013

Testimonial: "well, at first it was constant and long beeps (and it didn't turn off); but now after I've unplugged the pc and disconnected it a few times, it only gives one beep, and then it turn off immediately."

My compaq presario sr2010nx desktop won't turn on. I tried fooling with the off/on switch wiring and it came on for a short time. All was well. I hadn't used it for a week and tried to turn it...


Hi.

Sounds more like a power supply problem. First test the on/off switch by tracing the wires to where it connects to the mother board. The plug is usually marked "pwr sw" . Unplug the wire from the board & short out the 2 pins where the switch was plugged in using a small screw driver or any other conductive material. If the pc still fails to turn on, try replacing the power supply.
Best wishes,

Hi, I have a dell dimension e521 I hook up a old monitor to it and, it work but whei i hook up a new flat screen monitor it said (can not display video


Are you using the same VGA cable. Try to use the same VGA cable which is there is in Old Monitor

Though it can be issue with the resolution setting also of the Video

For that when you plug in your desktop to old monitor bring the Resolution to the minimum and then Connect it to your New Monitor

When i turn on the new installed printer, no more internet


Hello! I recommend that if you have a second desktop or laptop try to install those devices on it, so you can check if your old PC is the source of the problem or it is one of the devices. I think the most probable reason for this could be a power failure on that old desktop pc, that results on bad management of USB ports

Casio TK2200. no response from any of the key. It is switched on


Hi. I have never seen or heard of one of these, so it must be very old and rare.
It should use the standard half clear proceedure though, so try this:

Turn key to PROGRAM mode.
Turn power off at wall.
Hold RECEIPT FEED button down.
Turn power on at wall.
When you see 'FFFFFFFFFF' on display, let go of RECEIPT FEED button.
Press SUBTOTAL.
Turn key back to REG mode.

That should tell it to stop anything it is busy with, and return to normal use.
See how you get on.

Remove any disk inserted n your computer (floppy or cd) and try again.
Check the cables connection and monitor connection.
If no boot, try boot your PC using the CD restore provided with your machine
