As previously stated you are getting your RAM memory (which is memory your computer uses to store files temporarily) with your Hard Drive memory (which is where all your files and docs are saved. You can do as he said to check your hard drive space, but also notice you migh have 2 local drives, such as C and D both marked local disk, orhave the same representing image. Now 256Mb of ram is pretty low for running Windows XP if you re looking to upgrade either of this, a good way to know how much your coputer can handle, or what type of what to install is to download a program called PCWizard which can downloaded legally from This link (click here) if you need any help using this program or looking at info about ur computer you can contact me at gonzalosalcedo@yahoo.com

You seem to be a little mixed with your question,256MB refers to your memory, which applications use to work, but when you mention download space, you would be refering to your hard drive space. If you right click on My Computer, then click on explore, then look at your 'C' drive it will tell you how much space you have left. If you are running Windows XP 512MB of memory is adequate, unless you are photo or video editing, or using memory hungry programmes, in which case 1GB would be better for performance, depending on the maximum amount your motherboard will allow.

I'm using a Sandisk 1gig Memory Stick, but suddenly it has far less than 1gig to give. I mainly use this stick for my Sony Playstation Portable (PSP) for save files or such. Right now it has one 341.6mb...


because it requires that much space to write files to boot the games

if i were you, i'd save the games on your hard disk and format the 1G memory stock -- buy a larger capacity , such as 4G or 8G

please leave me positive feedback

Just need to know how to change the ram in my Sony Vaio PCG-v505ap


visit vaio manual in
ftp://ftp.vaio-link.com/pub/Manuals/Notebooks/
You can do this in two ways: opening your notebook and taking a look on the memory modules already installed (we will explain more about this later) or running a program like Everest (available on our download section). We ran Everest (going to Motherboard, Chipset, Memory Slots) on our notebook and found that it was using two 256 MB DDR-SDRAM PC2700 (“DDR333”) modules, for a total of 512 MB.
imageview.php?image=1680
click to enlarge
Figure 1: Checking your current memory configuration with Everest.
If your notebook has an empty memory slot, just go to the computer store and buy a new SO-DIMM module with the same technology (SDRAM or DDR-SDRAM) and speed of any capacity you want – of course you need to know the capacity limit of your notebook. You cannot install a 1 GB module in a notebook that only accepts modules up to 512 MB, for example. Our notebook – a Sony Vaio PCG-V505ECP – accepts modules up to 1 GB, for a total of 2 GB RAM, since it has two memory slots.
For example, if your notebook has one 256 MB module and an empty memory slot, if you buy and install another 256 MB module, it will have 512 MB RAM. If you buy and install a 512 MB module, your notebook will have 768 MB.
If your notebook already has two memory modules, you will need to remove one of the installed modules in order to install the new one. If the two modules have the same capacity, it doesn’t matter which one you will take away, but if they have different capacities, remove the one with smaller capacity. The new RAM capacity of your notebook will be of the capacity of the remaining module plus the capacity of the new module.
In our case, our notebook has two 256 MB modules. So we will remove one of these modules and install a new one on its place. We bought a 1 GB-module, so after installing it our notebook will have 1,280 MB RAM installed (memory math is tricky, since 1 GB equals to 1,024 MB not 1,000; so 1,024 MB + 256 MB = 1,280 MB).
