Question about Sony VAIO FRV37 Notebook
Hi, My wife has my old slow PCG FRV37, so I decided to upgrage the ram via ebay purchase of 2X1GB sodimm modules and although I have not recieved ram modules in the post yet,I have just noticed that the max suported ram for the lappy is 1GB (on the spec sticker by the touchpad).
What determines max ram, i.e m'board or BIOS, & is there any way I can fool the laptop to see full 2gb ram?(ie settings in BIOS or otherwise).
If not, should I replace both 256mb modules with both 1Gb modules, or will this degrade performance relative to, say, replacing both 256mb with just one of the 1GB module?
By putting in twice the max supported ram, is it just a case that the lappy will only be able to use 1GB of the inserted Ram, or can too much ram affect stability, performance, etc.
If the 1GB sticks fit and you are able to insert them it will not do any harm to your PC. However, it will only use the max amount stated in the manual. This is hardwired into the motherboard so there is no get around.
