Hello,
Can I replace the cpu in a vgc-RB42g with a non oem cpu instead of paying another $250. for one from Sony? I just paid $250. for a new motherboard from Sony and still "no video output" on the LCD?!
 
Well I doubt its your CPU causing yur problem I would check your RAM and Video card first if the video is on the board then check your RAM first then your PSU. It is unlikely that your CPU is bad but if it is any socket 775 Pentium 4 should work Pentium Ds should work in that board too.
