Question about Sony VAIO RB30C (VGCRB30) PC Desktop
Hi, when I turn on the computer the fan starts and sounds louder. no image in the monitor...the monitor is working but I get no signal from the computer, graphics or windows. just a black. the keyboard does not work either. no lights on the keyboard...any ideas on what's going on? Big thanks!!!!! - monica
I own a Sony that has done this before. What I did was shut down, unplug, open case and check every connection on all boards. I found several loose ones, then I cleaned it out with a can of air and a clean paint vrush. When I put it back together and powered on the problem was gone. Please let me know if this helps.

Initially I would suspect hardware failure on your PC. The only user action possible would be to open the PC and look over the memory sticks and the video card (if not built-in). Remove them and clean the little gold pin edges. Additionally, it might be of help to clean the slots where they go to with the use of a clean dry paint brush. Soon as everything is cleaned, reinsert the memory and/or video card to their respective slots. Power up your PC. If it runs OK, you're set to go if not, pls determine if you can hear a series of beeping sounds. Pls post back describing the sequence and duration of the beeps.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
