Question about Sony VAIO PCV-MXS10 PC Desktop

1 Answer

My computer was getting pretty outdated, bought a new one, put my sony vaio pcv-mxs10 in the basement bar area and was going to just put in all cd's for music, I hooked up bigger speakers and all I got was static and played with the volume and then nothing - no sound at all, hooked back up original speakers and so forth played with the settings, even reinsalled recovery discs, the recovery did help, but if I just tweek the volume it blanks out. Question: Did I burn up my sound card by playing with the volume level when I had static?

    Sorry, forgot about this being on here. I replaced the sound card, found that as i originally hooked up big speakers, it did blow my sound card and problem solved.

SOURCE: Lost recovery dist for sony vaio pcv-rx500

Hi,
I had an RX540 and I can tell you absolutely that you have NO options other than hopefully finding it in the classifieds. Sony is rigid about not only programs but also hardware that originally came with it.

You didnt mention you were having any problems right now so I assume all is up and running well? If so, I recommend 'ACRONIS TRUE IMAGE' its a back up program of my choice that lets you back up the entire operating system or just programs and you can back it up by making restore disk sets or simply cloning the whole drive to another drive. There are other programs that do this but I have tried a few and many times when you back up programs they will restore ok but then ask you for serial numbers. ACRONIS has only done that with one program that I have seen.

So simply..
search for a program that auto-copies all your serial numbers OR mark them down yourself and make some restore discs using Acronis or something similar.

I would also suggest cleaning any old files etc off your drive and running a scandisk and defrag before you do the back ups.(for good quality and speed)

When you back up.. back up the entire operating system AND all the programs.
If you only select operating system, all you will have is windoze.
In the future you can totally foul your windoze and simply boot to the Acronis recovery cd and the back ups ON CD and it will restore your computer.

Or.. do what I do. Once you have everything perfect, simply clone the entire drive to another drive and if it ever messes up just swap out the hard drive like changing a light bulb.*s* (always save your serials.)
By the way, a hard drive needs to be about 1/3 empty to work well and fast because there are windows memory and swap file issues. So free up some space for good performance ok ?

I hope this was helpful. good luck.*s*

SOURCE: NO SYSTEM RECOVERY IS WORKING on my Sony PCV-RS530G Windows XP

First get the trogen,malware or virus out, it is more than likelly causing the problem. Make sure you have a good virus program, I had one similar and most virus programs won't take it out or even show some of the latest bugs. Tech support is a waste of time for the most part, was your restore turned off?, Boot into safe mode, and run a spybot search and destroy, and AVG- free virus program that you can get on their site and download the program perhaps with another machine. Otherwise there are "DOS" commands that you can try, it could be the MBR, a corrupted file,or many other things. But if it happened suddenlly, chances are some kind of bug got in, you also are going to need a bootable Operating System Disk if this stuff dosen't work. good luck

Is there a current motherboard that will fit in a Sony Vaio pcv-RZ22g case to replace an old Asus P4S533 motherboard?


Desktop computer cases have mountings that suit the majority of motherboards.
You most like need a new switch mode power supply as the existion one won't have the correct power connectors and won't supply enough power.

Disk boot failure.insert system disk. Message that appear a boot up


first of all check in your BIOS whether your motherboard is detecting your hard drive or not.
If yes try installing window.
If not it means your hard drive is not detected , Open the case and check hard drive data cable is connected properly or not, and hard drive is getting proper power supply.
you can try changing hard drive data cable and power connector from.

If still you are facing the same problem that means your hard drive gone bad.

I have a sony vaio pcv-rs420. well it wont boot or nothing. it turns on but thats it . i called sony support and they said they don't issue that disk anymore. the recovery disk. they want to charge me $$$$...


I am asuming you have a video signal but your operating system is corrupt. You mention you dont have and cannot get the recovery disk. If you dont want to spring for a new operating system go get a free one like Ubuntu 10.10 LTS ... Of course this means that you will have to have access to another computer that can download the ISO image and burn it to a CD. Good luck.
