Question about Sony VAIO PCV-RS530G PC Desktop
I'm thinking of upgrading the video card on my Sony PCV-RS530G to a higher memory video card. How would this affect the power supply? Would I be limited to specific models only? Thanks in advance.

Unplug everthing and place PC face down on bench with base over edge. Earth yourself.
Swing pc unit forward and unscrew the case retaining screw on both sides of the pc unit, swing unit other way and remove other two screws. Case can be loosened, pull large cover up and remove both sides. Parts are then exposed. A shiny metal box covers the memory on the left side of the PC unit. Remove tape that retains it,slide and lift off from the edge facing you.
Memory slots are then exposed....insert and reassemble PC.
Ten minutes tops....good luck, much better performance.

From the looks of things that model will take a standard ATX power supply which would be available from and computer part dealer and ebay etc, get yourself a nice 400w replacement try and get a small form factor one if you can as it will be a tight sqeeze inside the case.
when replacing it you will have to open the case up (get an anti static wristband if you can, and work on a table rather that a carpeted floor) un hook all the connectors the old power supply (one in each drive and there should be 2 in the motherboard) you may have to pull the Dvd rom out slightly to get the new supply in, unscrew the 4 case screws holding the power supply from the back of the case. lift it out then put in the new one, screw it in using the case screws and connect up the internal power cables to the drives motherboard and new graphics card, close the case, plug in and voila
If you get stuck just ask and we will help
