As soon as I switch my RB30 on, it shows green light (on the back) of the PSU and MBO but the PSU light goes off, no video, no beep nothing.  Has the PSu gone ?. Any way I can diagnose the problem.?. Thanks

i would believe it is power supply related. the OEM PCs such as Sony are notorious for using inferior power supplies (Bestec)

 

i have a VGC also, my power supply went out 5 years ago. i replaced it with a 430 watt Thermaltake and my Sony XP PC ran great once again and still does, 5 years later...  as it stands now, the Corsair power supplies are what is recommended.

 

this is a nice one at low cost :

Ok. SI bought a PSU (Corsair CX-430)  and tried to install it. And tried it but the damn thing doesn't go in. It is the same size.

 

I cant even get the old one in now. Is there a trick on this box (RB30) . Do I have to remove anything else to get it in?.

it is a little tricky the first time you do it, it was for me too.  it should be the same screw pattern and everything. you shouldn't need to remove anything to fit it in.
