Question about Sony VAIO FX140 Notebook

1 Answer

Not problem, but memory related

Just a FYI for anyone upgrading their memory in Sony VAIO FX140 PC, I have found that Kingston 256MB PC133 SODIMM CL3 run very well in my laptop and yet to have any problems, figured I would give it a try since it was half the price of the PC100 DIMM.

This laptop has its own graphics card that doesn't rely on system memory for the graphics.

There should be no reason why its not detecting all 1GB of ram that you have installed.

Open the ram cover and make sure that you have clipped the ram into place properly.

How to upgrade memory what is the best memory for my laptop toshiba satelite 1800


Samsung original 256mb sdram PC133 144in sodimm 8chip 16x16 configuration. . Compatible memory for Satellite 1800-S253

That machine will on take a maximum of 512mb, so you could get 2 256mb to max out the memory. Samsung is the best for that machine, and they run around $20.00 per 256mb.

Thanks Mark

1. Has anyone installed 2Gb RAM memory in a Sony PCG-TR3A? please give details of memory specification. 2. Has anyone installed a HDD bigger than 40GB? please give me details of HDD specification.

You can only upgrade the memory to 1GB in that model Vaio laptop.

The memory supported is DDR SDRAM which runs at 333MHz. There are 2 memory slots which support 1x512 module in each slot.
I recommend Kingston RAM as the manufacturer.

As for the HDD the laptop supports EIDE (IDE/ATA) hard drive. you can have anything up to 320GB. Seagate are excellent drives as well as Fujitsu.

Memory upgrade for laptop

Older laptops can be VERY fussy about the memory ... you have to have the exact same 'speed' .. I had a similar problem after trying to upgrade an old machine that took slow memory (PC100) with a FASTER (PC133) module ...

NB> Some VERY old machines would not take 'double sided' modules ... check the manufacturers specs ..
