Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have a Sony Vaio thats from 2005 that is running XP. I need a new video card according to the pc shop after a diagnostic check, there was a warning "device driver got stuck in infinite loop". The video card currently in it is a ASUS EAX 300LE-A334C rev1.01. I mostly use the PC to search the internet and sometimes watch videos online. I don't use it for any gaming. Could you recommend a video card that I could replace it with that is somewhat affordable?

Check the manufacturers website go to the driver and support add your model number or service tag located somewhere on your Sony Vaio then download what you need from there as it will give you a list of all drivers compatible with that system. I hope this helps.

1 LONG BEEP 2 SHORT BEEPS


Does anything ever post to the screen when you press the power button? if not, it's your video card. The links below are for 1 long and 2 short and they say it's the video card. I've heard that Sony extended the warranty on some models so you might want to go to their website and check yours or in a google search type: Sony GPU Extended Warranty. I did and I see they extended it from one to three years. They have the faulty Nvidia Graphics Card which was a major problem for many manufacturers.

Are there any video cards that you can use to upgrade the 530g? I have seen posts that the power supply is an issue. If it is possible is it a matter of installing the card and disabling the onboard...


Your pc has a special graphics expansion port - AGP x8

You can insert any graphics cards which will fit the port. Check carefully, there are quite a few different types of graphics port.

Once inserted, boot up the PC, and insert the disk you should get with the card, it will have all the relevant drivers.

There should be no need to alter the bios settings, the new card will be identified by the boot process.

If power supply does become an issue, you will need to upgrade the PSU (Power Supply Unit).

I have sony vaio vgn fs715 w but i have aproblem no sound with win 7 couldyou hel me


According to the website this model of VAIO does not support Windows 7. You should always consult the Microsoft website Upgrade Compatibility before upgrading OS. However, all hope is not lost. It might be possible to make the driver for XP work with your system. If you go to the Sony VAIO website, go to Support and download the XP drivers for the audio card to the desktop of your computer. Next, right click on the file and select Properties. Select the Compatibility tab, check the Run this program in Compatibility Mode for... box and select Windows XP with SP3. Also select Run this Program as an Administrator. Press Apply, run the program and you should be good to go.

If not, comment back and we can move further.

Good Luck,

Without a copy of the diagnostics they did, if it is the video card then they are correct. The video card is a part of the main unit (motherboard). You would need to replace your motherboard, which can be costly.

An alternative is that if you have data you want to keep is that you can put the hard drive in an external hard drive enclosure and get another laptop.

Video Card not recognized on PCV-RS410


Hi, have you check the status of the video card in the window device manager.
1. Right clicking My Computer icon on your desktop
2. Select Manage option from menu
3. Select Device Manager
Please verify if there is any yellow color exclamation appears on the left side of your new video card adaptor. If so you need to install a driver. I am assuming your pc is running window xp and video card adaptor is window xp compatible.
Hope this help.
