Having problems with your Sony VAIO RB30C (VGCRB30) PC Desktop ?

I need to change the processor fan in my mothers sony Vaio desktop, but I can't figure out how to access it.


Answers :

Pop the side of the case off, it either uses screws or has plastic retention system. Then you will see a main fan over the CPU heatsink. Unscrew or unclip the fan. Install the new fan. If the fan is literally attached to the heatsink and cannot be removed then you will have to buy a whole new heatsink from www.newegg.com 10-30 dollars (comes with a new fan as well). If you remove the whole heatsink make sure you have thermal paste to reapply to the processor and heatsink. If you email me a picture of the inside of the case i can help you.
