How do i remove optical disc drive PCV-RX741 dissasembly instructions


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbF14QT3Fks
Take a look on this video ..the procedure is similar the only differences may be the locking device for the drive ..it may be different or have only screws..Another thing it may not need to remove the front panel or do not have a front panel at all ..The idea is t open the left lid..and after that remove the power cable and the data cable ..and remove the screws if present or release the locking mechanism

this is another one ..with slightly different system ..

I need to install better processor for sony vaio pcv-rx741


http://www.price.ro/specificatii_amd_athlon_xp_1800+_1.53_ghz_80.htm
This is the CPU you have inside from the manufacturer..It is a rather slow one ..It is an AMD model ..with 1.53 G speed and what it is matter to you it is on a socket A type ..
What you need to do is to get another cpu on same socket with more speed ..and also a larger catch memory ..(it is important for to run smoother and faster .
I don't think you will find any cpu on this socket larger than 2.2 G ..buit it is an improvement if you want to speed it up a little ..
The ram memory should be upgraded too ..and will support up to 2x 512 DDr1 on pc 2100 ..This will allow you to install more things and will even run windows xp if you get 1 G of ram on it ..but not very fast ..
http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K7/AMD-Athlon%20XP%203200+%20-%20AXDA3200DKV4E.html
here is a list with the fastest cpu on this socket..
To buy one ..I think you can ask to local computer store..usually they can guide you ..but look at the price too ..cause like it is said on the site I linked..there are other less expensive with almost similar performances ..

How can ichange memory & how to open computer


Turn your computer off, and disconnect the power-cord.

Look at the "back" of the desktop.

There will be screws holding the two side-panels in place.

Select the panel that is *FARTHEST* away from the many connections (keyboard, mouse, USB), and remove those screws.

Remove the side-panel.

Look for the stick(s) of RAM.

Count the number of "slots" for RAM.

Make a note of which slot(s) are in-use, and which are empty.

If you have "empty" slots, you can add sticks of RAM. Otherwise, you'll have to remove the RAM, and buy a bigger/better replacement (compare to replacing a bald car-tire with one with full-treads).

Disconnect all the cables from the desktop unit,
and take the computer to a computer-store.
They will check (online) to see the maximum amount of RAM that your Sony will support, and compare it to the current amount of RAM.
They will sell you "compatible" RAM, and probably, if you ask nicely, will install the RAM for you (it only takes 15 seconds). The "smaller" a computer-store that you pick, the more-likely that you'll get "free" installation, if you buy the RAM from them.

Want to add memory card to sony pcv-v1/g


Easy! Tip the screen forward and you'll see a Phillips screw towards the top of each end of the lump that sits at the base of the back of the screen. Undo both of these THEN the 2 tabs you refer to can be pushed in the direction of the arrows and the whole top of 'the lump' then comes off. The memory is under the silver colored cover held down by 2 pieces of sticky tape(!). Remove tape. Remove cover. 2 slots are exposed. One has 512 in it. Put 512 in the other one! Easy!

Can the memory be upgraded (increased) from the basic (factory installed) 512mb on the Sony PCV-W300G?


Hi there.
As far as i know you can upgrade the RAM to 2GB, 2x1GB 184pin PC2100 DDR DIMM Desktop RAM modules is what it can take.


Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Install memory upgrade to Sony PCV V210P


Its very simple. You will find the DIMM slots(where you install the RAM) on the motherboard. Just plug the memory into the slot and use the latches on either side of the latch to lock it in place.
This is what a DIMM slot looks like.
