For and external USB drive, the RPM is of no consequence. Internally it should only help speed up the access time, assuming it is the same type of drive.
Hope that helps.

    Hi, Yes it will work. Just make sure you have the right USB connection 2.0or if you have 3.0on your system. It has to be the same on your external drive. Good luck

No image is coming out of its LCD. It's diagnosed to have damaged video chipset. It seems its cooling system is inefficient. model: Sony VAIO VGN-CR131E


Hi

Who diagnosed it?

If the surface of the "video chipset" (graphics chip) is damaged it may be possible for a specialist, with an Infra Red Workstation to repair it:

Ball Graphics Array Reflow

or

Ball Graphics Array Reballing

These repairs can be expensive and the fault can come back after repair.

But it might also be a fault with the LCD Panel, the Cold Cathode Backlight or the LCD Panel Power Inverter.

Connect the laptop to an external desktop monitor with a VGA cable, using the Fn + F5, F6 or F7 button to send the image to the external monitor. If no image appears, then the fault is with the graphics chip, if you get an external image then the fault is with one of the other components I mention above.

I hope this helps.

My sony vaio vgn-cr120e won't turn on. The adapter is working.


Perform power cycle. Disconnect all power sources, battery and power cord. Press power button for 5 secs. Reconnect power and start unit again. Do you see VAIO? Do you enter BIOS by holding F2 as soon as you press power button? If not then its probably hardware related, i mean needs service. Otherwise if you see any of what i mentioned above try turning off and then on and pressing F8 for safe mode or repair your computer options and then try system restore from accessories menu or F10 for full recovery with data loss (Restore C drive)

It may be that your machine can not handle a drive of that size. When I replace hard drives I always try to replace them with the size they came with just in case they do not support a larger size.
