VGC-RB50 Display Problem

Hi,

I have a PC - Sony VGC-RB50 that is less than 2-year-old suddenly the screen froze up and forced me to do a power reboot. After I powered up the system, nothing displayed on my monitor - not even memory count or BIOS information. I checked and the system has power, because powersupply fan, CPU heatsink fan, and PC unit fan are all running. I double-check the monitor connection, and even replaced with a different working monitor and still no signla displayed on the screen. I thought there would be something wrong with the video card, but it is an integrated video card and I could not re-seat that. I even purchased a new external video card, and connect the monitor to that and still nothing show up. The strange thing that I noticed is the CPU heatsink fan runs constantly without stopping. Now I don't know what's wrong with this PC or what else to try. Thank you ahead. lk.

I have the sony vgc rb40. I lost all video. I installed a new video card in the slot and only get the startup screen saying VAIO. It will not load windows. Plus, can't load the drivers from the cd because I can't see what to click. Any suggestions?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I think that the MB or the processor just took a dive on you. Most likely the processor... as you are able to power up. If it were the memory or the video card, you would hear a series of beeps when trying to start the computer. And you already verified the monitor is fine.

The computer should beep ONCE when starting-up.
More than one BEEP implies either that the video-card is not responding, or that it is not fully "seated" in its slot.

Try a different video-card in your desktop.

not easily. the card is soldered onto the board. if it is malfunctioning you can reflow the board yourself or get a professional to do it. if you strip the board, it should be around $100-150 for the reflow.

Is there a rest button on the Sony VAIO VGC-RB50 PC Desktop?


Hello,

Do you mean Reset button?

Computers these days do not have Reset buttons. What you can do is hold the power button on for about 5 seconds and the computer will shut down. Press it again and the computer will boot up again.

If this is not what you mean, please explain futher.

Thanks for using Fixya.

From with in device manager right click on the driver and click uninstall and then without reboot try to install new one. make sure it is compatible with the OS ie. 64bit vs 32 bit. If it is vista 64bit good luck. :-)
