Usually, it is not possible to upgrade the cpu on a laptop. In rare cases where it is possible the upgrade usually costs nearly as much as a new laptop.
However, you can significantly upgrade the laptop's performance by adding more memory and by replacing the old slow hard drive.
Your Sony VGN-Z250 is usually supplied with 3GB of RAM memory. You can replace the existing memory modules with a new kit consisting of 2 x 2GB modules (total 4GB). The type of memory you need is "SO-DIMM" (meaning laptop size) DDR3 - 1066MHz (you may use 1333MHz memory but it will only run at 1066MHz speed). I would suggest either G-Skill or Crucial brand memory. And you can replace the hard drive with an SSD. You'll be amazed at the boost this provides, seriously. I would suggest either Samsung 840 EVO or Sandisk Ultra for an SSD. Both offer super-fast performance compared to your old spinning hard drive, and both have very low power consumption so they run cool and give your laptop a few extra minutes of battery power. You can clone/copy your existing Windows setup onto the SSD using free Macrium Reflect software or free software from the SSD maker's website. Or, you can do a fresh install of Windows.

I have a compaq presario cq60-215dx notebook pc, was wondering how do i go about upgrading the RAM?


I have checked the Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX Specification It Originally has 2GB Memory and supports upto 4GB RAM max. If you intend to upgrade the RAM, you can buy additional RAM and put them in you system. Here is the HP Guide to Replace RAM and How to Upgrade RAM Guide
Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX has two RAM slots for DDR-2 (533 or 667) Memory Modules. First you have to check that the RAM slot is available for additional RAM. I believe that it has two modules of 1GB each in both slots. So, you have to get two modules of RAM 2GB each to upgrade to 4GB (or one 2GB RAM module to upgrade to 3GB). Hence, it is recommended that you get 2GB replacement module for each 1GB module you have on you system from local laptop repair/ service center, which would be cost effective as existing 1GB RAM Modules would be useless for you upon upgrade.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

Sony vaio vgn fs515h I want to upgrade the memory on my laptop to 2 x 1gb cards - are there any instructions/processes to follow?


You need to buy the same kind of memory and make sure your laptop support that amount of memory and any BIOS settings are updated for it.

I want to upgrade my sony vaio VGN-AX570G to 4GB of RAM. I have been able to upgrade to 3GB but I want to use 4GB. Can anyone figure out my solution?


Hello!
I've checked the Sony website and it says the maximum amount of RAM you can put in the VGN-AX570G is 2GB.

I'm not sure why you are able to have 3GB, but it may be a fluke. It may be showing the memory but is not able to actually use the full 3GB.

Good luck! Make sure to rate any solutions you get!

Problem with upgrading my acer extensa 5620z memory to 4GB


Hi there.
I recommend you get another stick of SODIMM to replace what seems to be the faulty stick.
If you are using XP or Vista X86 (32bit) then the system will only recognize 2.8 - 3GB of memory, only 64bit operating systems recognize the full 4GB.


Good luck ad thanks for using FixYa!!

I'm upgrading my memory


This is directly from the Sony site. Don't know how many pins there are, but if you order the PC2-4200 memory, it will work. Keep in mind that your computer will only accept up to 2gb.

Type: DDR2
Installed: 2GB PC2-4200 (1GBx2)
Maximum: 2GB
Speed: 533MHz

Sony VGN-460 Memory & CPU Upgrade? Noisy Fan How do I replace it?


The Crucial website suggests you can put 1GB in each slot. http://www.crucial.com/uk/store/listparts.aspx?model=VAIO%20VGN-S460%20Series Sony might know which CPUs will work with this. Hopefully any Pentium-M with 533 FSB.
