Question about Sony VAIO VGC-RB50 PC Desktop

1 Answer

About 4 weeks ago my computer started having a problem while playing games. The game would work fine for about 5-10 minutes then it would lag to about 2 frames/sec. I've looked all over online and the only reasonable cause pertaining to me would be my CPU and PSU heat. But i checked and while gaming my heat was steady around 111 farenheit, and standardly it's only 109. I REALLY want to play some games because i need it as a stress relief. someone please help My computer has a 3.2 ghz single core pentium 4 1.7 gb PC3200 Nvidia EVGA 9500GT 450 Watt PSU All my games worked fine until just a few weeks ago

Have you opened the computer up and checked the fans for dust. As you say, those are clasic overheating symptoms
Use a small brush and a vaccum cleaner, or a can of compressed air(air duster) to clean your pc's fans.

That problem may have been caused by lag, sometimes when there are too many things happening at once in a video game, lag can occur and the game may freeze. If that's not the case, then you may need to restart the Wii if the problem persists. Other than that, it may just be a game glitch. Give it a few days of rest, then start playing again to see if it works. Sorry, but that's all I got if this didn't help.

Lag in Chefville


OMG all of you are WRONG, it is ZYNGA. NOT the dudes system (eyeroll) YES ZYNGA lags on CHEFVILLE whenever you request anything. NOT posting but, requesting. I bought my computer brand new, a samsung, from the box Windows 8 and 64 bit, and it STILL lags when sending requests through CHEFVILLE, from the minute I ran the game and it does it through the library computers, and my friends laptops. So really your "helpful advice" is a bunch of hogwash!

My HP W1907 monitor works fine until I try to play The Sims 3 game. I play for several minutes or hours and the monitor shows the message that it is going to sleep and the light on the monitor goes...


Hi there. I had the same problem months ago when I try to play high end games like Sims 3 my monitor goes into power saving mode. I tried to check every possible causes of the problem. It could be that your computer is overheating try to clean your computer and check if your fans still works. Second it could me your power supply malfunctioning, maybe it does not meet the required power to make your game work. Last cause is your video card malfunctioning, what I did is to just buy a new video card and it works.
If you do not have spare power supply or video card you can go to a computer repair shop for them to check the possible problem that causes it to go into power saving mode. It can also save you money before you can buy a new one.
Hope this helps, Have a good day!

PC GAME LAG... PLEASE HELP!


You may want to try the following.

Disable windows search, it may be trying to index files in the background and HD access may cause annoying pauses while playing games.

Check that your anti virus is not running an automatic or scheduled scan when you are playing, this will deffinatley cause jittering.

Are you uning an integrated graphics chipset ? If you are you may want to upgrade to a discrete card AMD 3850 are very cheap and i use mine for Mirrors Edge and Battleforge and it runs great.

Update your graphics card drivers.

Use add remove programs and get rid of everthing you dont use. The apps may have processes running when you are not even using them. iTunes and Quicktime are really bad in this respect.

It you are playing online ensure that you are not running file sharing apps in the background. Also if you share internet access with anyone else check they are not doing the same. File sharing is a nightmare for online playing performance.

Close everything you are not using including IE and Firefox. Flash ads in web browsers can use a suprising amount of CPU time.

Hope this Helps

Well, i was playing World of Warcraft today, and randomly everything started lagging pretty hard, so i restarted my cpu, and now i can't even been on for 5 minutes without the computer freezing up...


if you keep reset on to your CPU this will affect to your Hard Drive. When your online games WOW very lag then do not let that online game on play to your Computer. You know or maybe your Computer are not enough to run this game. Check all the plug in play device which are capable to run this game. Your VGA Compatibility e.i AGP or PCI-E, Memory speed e.i DD1, DD2 & DDR3 and mostly Games Accelerator Programs.
Hope this tip might help you.
Good luck!

I know nothing about this type of router. Try pressing the button on the bottom and rebooting your router. Maybe that will help.

Gaming issues


I would make sure you have the latest bios, and video drivers to start. Make sure you have all latest updates for windows. Make sure your hard drive is defragmented. Also make sure your computer is clean and that it is ventilating/cooling properly. If that fails I would just format and reinstall windows.
Hope that helps,

Psp lags / delayed action


Are you running with custom firmware like M33 or HX?

If so, you can switch your psp off (not stand by), and hold R trigger when you switch it on, it should bring you to the recovery menu, where you can setup your XMB cpu speed and Game cpu speed, both set to default will be fine.
