Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have a sony vaio pc with a p 450-vx mother board, the darn thing won't boot up the mother board light is on and the fans come on light on front is amber. Oh yeah I,ve changed out video cards.


Answers :

If the screen comes on for a few seconds and then goes to sleep mode you probably have not installed the drivers for the new video card correctly. you should shut down computer, replace the new card with the old one, put in the disk with the drivers for the new card, install the new drivers and then shutdn and replace the old with the new and reboot. this should solve the problem. please rate me and thanks for choosing enterprise computing solutions..
