  • 108 Answers is a place to go to get fan prices and suppliers but a local PC shop usually has a pile of old used seldom go out....but....

You need to check the power supply for the fan size and even, if a newer model power supply, check to see how many fans there are (although most fans are the same size in most power supplies).

This assumes you are willing to repair the power supply. If so you will probably have to remove it from the computer. Open the power supply. Cut the wires to the fan (although some have a pin to simply disconnect) and then replace it with a new fan plus more than likely do a little soldering. But do I recommend this...NO.

Why....well if the fan has failed it probably failed for mechanical reasons....i.e. dirt implying that a can of pressurized air was not used to once every couple months to blow out the entire computer....power supply and other dust in general. Also....if an older machine it makes more sense to replace the entire power supply (they ultimately fail) with the same wattage as is on the one you have particularly if it's a few years old. This is also a lot cheaper than ultimately replacing a motherboard, cpu et al. Back to dirt. There are very few mechanical parts on a computer ....the fans, the trays or inserts on media, and the arm on the disk drive. The trays or inserts for media almost never go out and when they do it's the result of someone inadvertently putting pressure on it usually, the fans seldom go out before the power supply does but the arm on the disk drive...well when it starts to growl you best copy your drive to another but by all means copy your work to some back up media. The life of both the power supply and your computer in general can be increased by keeping it clean....power fluctuations and heat are your enemies.

While inside the power supply you might also want to check to see if it is fused. If it is and the fuse is blown...replace it. It was not the fan.

If you do take the power supply out (and its an older machine where the power cable or cables - newer computers connect in two places- to the motherboard) make sure record the way it goes back in. Failure to do so will be in POOF....there goes the motherboard. You plugged in in backwards. Newer motherboards are designed to prevent this with either a pin block or a one way only clip.

Lastly....power supplies are a pretty well developed product from a manufacturing perspective. Any low cost power supply is adequate. Those that sell for above $20 (in 2008 dollars) offer no real advantage for the typicial pc owner.

Hope this helps....Tango. Send chocolate to

Replacing the powersupply on a Sony VAIO PCV-RS720G desktop

Hi There,

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
