I have received a Sony Vaio PCV-RS510 from a friend without the hard drive, no original CD. He gave it to me because it gave him a black screen with "No signal" message.
I have seeked helps from www.allexperts.com
and was suggested to clear the CMOS memory. I bought a new hard drive, asked for original softwares from SONY.
Then, I put the hard drive in, put the original softwares (I burned them into a CD), but still received the "No Signal" message!!!
I opened the case and could see all the lights on, the fans ran OK...
I searched the "No signal" error and found out that it might be because of the video card. I am quite sure that the original video card is integrated into the motherboard. I am going to buy a new video card.
I will have in hands the CD with original softwares from SONY, the manual CD for the hard drive and the CD for the new video card.
What should I do now? Please help. Any idea would be appreciated.
My email is email@example.com
just in case someone wants to help me faster.
Thanks a lot!
