Tpically yes you can locate the number on your old power supply that represent the type and output and order a replacement at places like this link http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Description=power+supply
or perhaps if there is a computer repair place close, sometimes they have used ones from computers that has died

I have a sony vaio pcv-rs420. well it wont boot or nothing. it turns on but thats it . i called sony support and they said they don't issue that disk anymore. the recovery disk. they want to charge me $$$$...


I am asuming you have a video signal but your operating system is corrupt. You mention you dont have and cannot get the recovery disk. If you dont want to spring for a new operating system go get a free one like Ubuntu 10.10 LTS ... Of course this means that you will have to have access to another computer that can download the ISO image and burn it to a CD. Good luck.

I have a Sony Vaio PCV-RX755 desktop computer and I think I need to replace the power supply. It shut down normally last night, but would not turn on this morning...no power at all. I checked all the...


I can just provide you the link where you can check the prices and the model itself. upgrading the power supply you can actually do that. specialy when you are not going to load hardware that has heavier power requirements then that's the time you need to upgrade the PS. Don't forget to get the model of the PS that you have. You can also visit any local computer shop. they can help you with this.

Bought a corsair vx550 and it doesn't fit. Plus, the motherboard has a 3 prong connector just behind the 20 pin that is not available on the new power supply


The Cosair VS550 fits the form factor Standard ATX PS/2 .
size: 5.9"(W) x 3.4"(H) X 5.5"(L); 150mm(W) x 86mm(H) x 140mm(L).

Do you know what size your case is? I tried the Sony site and their support site which only offers a part number for a replacement power supply (sony part #
146870923)

How to connect a sata cable to pcv-rs420


There are no SATA headers on the motherboard. (Connector on motherboard is a Header)

You have 1 AGP slot for a graphics card, and 3 PCI slots, (White in color)

You can however, buy and install a SATA adapter card in one of those PCI slots. (The computer comes with a modem adapter card in one, of the PCI slots, therefore you may have two PCI slots that aren't being used)

This is Sony Support, and the main page for the Vaio PCV-RS420 Desktop PC Computer,

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=PCVRS420

Under the heading - Specs, you can click on - Marketing Specifications
(PCVRS420)
This tells you the Expansion Slots you have, ( 1 AGP, and 3 PCI)
(Plus other specifications)

In case you do not have the User Manual anymore, you can download it by clicking on - VAIO User Guide - under the Manuals heading.
(Shows how to open the computer case, among other information)

This is an example of a SATA adapter card with internal SATA headers, and external e-SATA ports,

Any additional questions about this, and I'm right here.

No sound on sony vaio desktop pcv rs 420


This is eSupport.Sony.com, and the page for the Sony Vaio PCV-RS420,
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=PCVRS420
Click on the + sign next to -> Audio (Sound) 1 files

You will now see ->
Original-ADI SoundMAX Audio Device Driver, Version 5.12.1.3622 for the Microsoft Windows Operating System <- in blue.
There is a globe with a green arrow to the right of this. Click on this globe/arrow icon.

You will be taken to another window. There is a globe/arrow icon, once more. Click on it.
Now follow the instructions.
Should a Microsoft 'Squawk Box' pop-up, ignore it. "Warning. This software does not have a digital certificate ya-da, ya-da"

It's from Sony, and I assure you it's safe.
Click on Run, and in the next small window, click on Run again. If you have problems, I suggest you come back and post an additional comment. We'll get it straightened out.

I suggest the Windows update may not be a good thing. Windows has thousands of generic drivers.
The key word here is "Generic"
They are not THE drivers made by Sony for THIS laptop. I suggest using THE drivers.
