Almost sounds like your wizard ended up coping everything to your new hard drive. And when you do this usually it causes the copied system to not boot. What you need to do is put your old hard drive in the system and make it the secondary drive and then get the new hard drive and make it the primary hard drive. When you do this you need to install Windows from your Operating System disc if you have one. Once you do this you can put all then needed data from your old hard drive onto then new one. Usually the one and only thing people need on the old hard drive is the documents and settings folder it will usually have everything you have ever saved to your computer unless you have things elsewhere like directly on the c drive instead of on the desktop or in your documents. If you need further assistance don't hesitate to reply.

Which video card i can get for gaming on this computer the vgc-rb53 vaio sony computer please help!!


You can fit any PCI Express X16 graphics card into your computer. The biggest issue that you may run into is power requirements. However, the majority of inexpensive graphics cards - ranging in prices under $80 - should be capable of gaming very well. If you're looking to go all out and make an investment in PC gaming, replacing the power supply will make the machine capable of using any video card. 1000 watt power supplies can be found online for around $100.

I have a five year old Sony VAIO VCG RB42G desk top computer. It does not boot, instead I get a boot message (in DOS?) telling me to reboot or insert reboot media. I tried to insert recovery dvd, but dvd...


If you are not able to get the disc tray to open itself, you can manually open it before starting the computer by pressing a paperclip into the tiny hole on the front. This manually releases the tray. Then start it up, and try to enter the BIOS setup by pressing F2. In the BIOS setup, make sure that the bootup priority is set to the CDROM drive. Restart, and hope for the best! :)

The green light blinking in the back indicates that the power supply went bad and is not turning on, go ahead and get the power supply replaced. Normally that light is supposed to be fully lit and green.

As soon as I turn the power switch on--my Viao VGC-RB53 immediately shuts all power off--like a breaker switch.


I think you have a bad power supply, its pretty easy to change out and they are less than sixty dollars for a 450 watts power supply
