Vaio VGC-M1 graphics card

My Vaio desktop computer is about 6 years old and has just developed a problem which, I'm told, is the graphics card as, when I try to switch on, allp I'm getting is a blank screen and three beeps (one beep followed by two quicker beeps). Thing is, no-one I've spoken to (including Sony Help!!) can tell me if the graphics card is an integrated part of the motherboard or is a seperate slot in. Anyone out there know?

Upgrade the cpu for a sony vaio vgc-ra834g pc


I have upgraded cpu in the past, its a solution that is limited as you prob cant upgrade it again, newer motherboards support newer cpu, Maybe look for a cpu mobo combo to buy them both, Depends how much you can afford.dont forget if its an older mobo, it prob takes the slower memory, todays is faster. will your old mobo support newer graphics cards if you play games ??

Which video card i can get for gaming on this computer the vgc-rb53 vaio sony computer please help!!


You can fit any PCI Express X16 graphics card into your computer. The biggest issue that you may run into is power requirements. However, the majority of inexpensive graphics cards - ranging in prices under $80 - should be capable of gaming very well. If you're looking to go all out and make an investment in PC gaming, replacing the power supply will make the machine capable of using any video card. 1000 watt power supplies can be found online for around $100.

Hello, I have a Sony Vaio VGC-V3M and I have just a black screen after starting it. I can hear windows loading, and I get the vaio logo, then the Windows XP logo but then blackness. I can get the Bios...


If you can see the windows logo and get into the bios then it is not the graphics card.

Most likely cause is the os itself, just after post press F8 repeatetly until you have the boot mode page open and choose safe mode, in safe mode do a system restore, goto start bar, programs, accessories, system tools and system restore, and start from a resent restore point. This can can take a while, so be patient and let the computer restore itself until you have the windows screen up.

If the restore dosent work, goto safe mode again, right click on my computer goto properties and enter device manager, in there under display adapters click on the plus sign and uninstall the graphics card, reboot. hope this helps post back if need farther help.
