How to connect a sata cable to pcv-rs420 - Sony VAIO Digital Studio PCV-RS420 PC Desktop


Answers :

There are no SATA headers on the motherboard. (Connector on motherboard is a Header)

You have 1 AGP slot for a graphics card, and 3 PCI slots, (White in color)

You can however, buy and install a SATA adapter card in one of those PCI slots. (The computer comes with a modem adapter card in one, of the PCI slots, therefore you may have two PCI slots that aren't being used)

This is Sony Support, and the main page for the Vaio PCV-RS420 Desktop PC Computer,

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=PCVRS420

Under the heading - Specs, you can click on - Marketing Specifications
(PCVRS420)
This tells you the Expansion Slots you have, ( 1 AGP, and 3 PCI)
(Plus other specifications)

In case you do not have the User Manual anymore, you can download it by clicking on - VAIO User Guide - under the Manuals heading.
(Shows how to open the computer case, among other information)

This is an example of a SATA adapter card with internal SATA headers, and external e-SATA ports,
