Check this link out for the specs for your computer.
Just copy and paste. Right now you can get this unit for $399.00, new it ran around $899.00. But like anything else in the computer world one year you need to upgrade, two years you need upgrade, Three years you need to upgrade, forth year you need to buy a more up to date computer. I replace mine and use my others for back ups or sell them. If your selling yours and it is in good shape you could get up to $399.00 for it. Hope this helps.

After system recovery of my sony Vaio PCV-RS510, I did a Vaio updates and now computer will not boot. None of the buttons or keys working. Displaying "Sony" only.

If you have an install disc boot to it, restart your PC hold down F12 and select the CD/DVD Drive. If it boots to disc, go to the command prompt then run SFC /scannow. This will run the system file checker and repair your files as well.

Adding more hard space

If you are running out of hard disk space you need to do disk maintenance to recover lost disk space.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

If you still need more disk space you can add another hard disk to your computer as a slave hard drive. You can move your data to this new hard drive and free up disk space on your C Drive.

Just bought a new HP 2009m Monitor and my PC is sony vaio PCV-RS510.i want to buy a video card but i don't know the compatibility.hope you can help me.

Sony eSupport > Vaio PCV-RS510 desktop computer > Manuals, Specs, and Warranty page,

On this page I invite you to left-click on - Marketing Specifications, under the SPECS heading.

A small window will come up on the left, showing a PDF file of the marketing specifications.

Expand it to full size.
(Top right corner. Left-click on the Maximize icon, in-between the Minimize icon, and the Red X)

The graphics expansion slot uses the AGP technology.
(Accelerated Graphics Port

It is the AGP 8X version.

Advise you need an AGP graphics card, that is AGP 8X, and has a DVI port.

( I'm using an HP 2009m monitor right now, but I have the PCI Express 1.1 technology)

Digital Visual Interface,

I wouldn't advise getting too 'crazy' with buying the best AGP 8X graphics card available.

A decent AGP 8X graphics card that doesn't 'break the bank', will do just fine.

Here are two examples;




BEFORE you install a graphics card, here are some tips;

A) Computer unplugged from power.

B) Observe Anti-Static Precautions.

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Computer unplugged from power, computer case open, working on a table; TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case, BEFORE you reach inside.

Should you walk away in the middle of working on your computer, upon your return be sure to Touch the metal frame again.

C) Computer on, and Windows loaded, Install the CD that comes with the graphics card FIRST.
Load the software from that disk.

Then shut the computer down, unplug from power, and after observing Anti-Static precautions, install the graphics card.

[Also, sometimes in our zealousness to get things going again, we forget to unplug the monitor from the computer's Integrated Graphics, and plug the monitor into the graphics card ]

Audio driver

Check your manual for the Driver type. If it is the common AC97 - then is is available for free download - just Google for it. Also the Motherboard or utilities disk that came with the computer should have it. Alternatively contact Sony Tech Supp Team.
