Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi I have a Sony Vaio VGN-S1HP (model PCG-6C1M). It is too slow and running out of hard drive space. I would like to know if I can upgrade the processing power and also increase the hard drive from 40g to say 60 or 80g?

    Thanks for feedback. However what I am really asking is whether the model I have will actually allow for this type of upgrade. IE is there anough space in there to put all this new stuff in and will it be compatable and will it work?

Well I would recommend upgrading your RAM to 2 GB (Your standard model comes with 1/4 of that) and a 250 GB drive. The RAM would cost you about $80 in parts and perhaps $30 labour and the hard drive should be about $60 in parts and $20 labour. I don't recommend upgrading processors as it can cause warranty problems down the road.

    No problem, it uses industry standard connectors so everything is expandable for sure. If you want to know a little more technical detail with which to upgrade your system, you want to buy a SATA hard drive and DDR2 866 MHz SDRAM for your memory. These are the standard component types you already have installed.
