PC will not turn on?

When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

Did you reformat the entire hard drive when you installed Vista? If you formatted the recovery partition you won't be able to go back without a Xp installation disc.

Is there a way to increase the factory maximum ram of 512mb on a Sony PCV RX550. Purchasing motherboard, etc.

The only way to increase memory capacity on any motherboard is by replacing it with a new one that can take more. Rather than do that in your Sony computer, though, you should probably consider replacing the entire computer. Here's why.

First, you may not be able to fit a different motherboard into the Sony case. Many computers were made using proprietary motherboards with non-standard sizes or mounting hole locations. Then, they often have non-standard connectors for the front panel switches and lights, making it difficult to hook up. The power supply will be a problem. Guaranteed it will be too low-power for newer motherboards and won't have the right CPU power output connector, so you'd need to replace that as well. But a standard power supply may not fit into the case; again, proprietary power supplies with odd sizes were often used. So now you're looking at replacing the motherboard and power supply, and possibly the case, just for starters.

You'll need a new processor and RAM with the new motherboard. No new board will support your current processor and RAM. And you'll need a new hard drive and probably optical drive as well. New boards are designed for SATA (serial interface) drives. There won't be enough connectors to re-use the older IDE devices in your Sony.

You'll probably need a new copy of WIndows, too, unless your Sony still has an XP or Vista product key sticker on it. You won't be able to use any factory restore discs because the hardware will be completely different, so you'll be doing a fresh installation from scratch.

The bottom line is that you're going to end up building a new computer. If you just want a basic computer for the typical things like Web surfing and office use, you can buy a name-brand system for less than the price of all the parts, and it will come with Windows installed and will be ready to go. If you're wanting a super gaming machine or something tailored for a specific use, and you're willing to do the work, then by all means pick up the individual parts and roll your own.

Will Sony sell you another PSU?

It's a laptop I'll bet they require you to get authorization and return for service. Do so.
