Sony VAIO RB30C (VGCRB30) PC Desktop Won't Turn On After reinstalling ram

I was trying to reinstall my ram for my Sony Vaio VGCRB30. Since it say's i only have 256 when i got 512. So I reinstall my ram and the computer will not turn on at all. No fan, no blue glowing Vaio logo, no green power light next to the power button, nothing. The only thing that is on is a small blinking green light next to the power cord on the back of the computer. There is also a smaller green light inside the computer flashing. All cords are firmly connected. The outlet has been checked with other electronics and works. I greatly appreciate any and all suggestions. Thank you in advanced.

Had power outage and now my sony vaio vgcrb30 desktop will not power up to display. fan runs load and will not turn off when pushing power button.


more that likely the power supply or the motherboard were damaged.
Power Supplies are fairly inexpensive ($40 or so) so I'd replace that 1st.
If no change then failure is likely the motherboard

Adding RAM


If it has 4 slots and supports 2Gb max with 2 slots currently populated with 2 x 256mb chips you'll need to remove both those chips and install 4 x 512mb chips to reach the max of 2 Gb.
