Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGC-RB42G PC Desktop ?

Need tv and dvd decoder for sony vaio vgc-rb42g


Answers :

After I opened the case to clean all the dust out and closed it up again when I tried to start it up again I had a blinking green light on the power supply and the computer would not start up. I found an exact power supply online and after installing the green light was on steady and the computer fired right up so this time the blinking light indicated a bad power supply. My computer GURU told me it was just a coincidence that the failure happened at the time that I decided to clean up the tower.
