Having problems with your Sony PC Desktops ?
Bought a Sony 36X max. enhanced ECC computer from
\015 Bought a Sony 36X max. enhanced ECC computer from Salvation Army store, as is. LOL. Hooked it up to my screen and turned it on. Then, hmm, it made a continual winding-up sound and an information screen appeared. I also noticed the telephone module plug is missing from the back of the unit where all the electronic plugs are at. At least it semi-works it but seems something is missing! LOL. What to do next? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.\015
The winding sound means that theres a cord trying to get friendly with one of the internal fans or theres just alot of dirt built up in a fan. If theres no telephone jack and you want one then you'll need to purchase a PCI 56k modem.
