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.

My sony Vaio VGC-RB53 wont boot at first i got a message of a fan problem on CPU, i replace the CPU for a new one with more watts and by the way put a new hard drive on it (1T). I was on the process of...


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.

My Sony Vaio VCG-RB53 will not turn on. Just went dead. Other peripherals on the same power source are fine. I first got a black screnn with white writing and it tryed several times to start Windows XP and...


It could be the PSU (power supply unit), one that has a fan working and where the power cord goes into. If that goes bad then the computer becomes dead as there is no power going to any of its systems. If there is any sign of life in the computer then you can try by removing the RAM and reinserting them. Or by unplugging the connector from the PSU to the mother board. But remember to plug it in in the same way that you remove it from. remember it by the color of the cables. If by mistake you turn the connector by 180 degrees then the mother board will get burnt.
