Question about Sony VAIO Digital Studio PCV-RS410 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have a PCV-RS410 Sony Vaio Desktop and it recently got infected with a virus that made me unable to boot anything (not even safe mode ). Since i couldn't figure out a solution for this (because I didn't have no system recovery disk, or even the windows xp disk to factory reset it), I had a Windows 7 disk that I haven't activated yet, and this was able to boot. During the setup before installing, I formatted the hard drive (which was probably a bad idea though). Windows 7 was able to install fine but without drivers. I managed to install most drivers such as audios and videos successfully. But the biggest problem is it wont connect to the internet. Or more likely, it can't find the device thats connected to the desktop. I have a wireless internet setting at home. I am stuck right now, please help. Thank you

Vaio pcv-rs410 won't boot from usb


Have you changed the boot order in your bios? Many USB Keys are actually formatted as USB HDD or USB DVD. If you do have the USB device as 1st boot option ensure that the format is FAT32 and the software installed correctly (grub loader or windows boot image). Many sites such as Major Geeks will offer Optical Disc->USB boot conversion tools which make this a much easier process.

Goodluck!

Sony VAIO PCV-RS410 memory maxed @ 1G. Can I install different motherboard with more memory?


You could, but to be honest you're probably going to spend more money and time than it's worth.

If you're having speed issues, one possible solution is to clear space off your hard drive and run defragmentation. Your hard drive should never be over 80% of its capacity; otherwise the system can't run at peak efficiency.

If the PC still isn't running to your liking, then I'd recommend shopping for a new one.
