Question about Sony VAIO VGN-A170B PC Notebook
I have just bought 2 1gb ram ddram pc2700 for my laptop VGN A170B. Originally it has install 2 x 256mb pc2700. When i install the 2 x 1gb ram does not boot. But if i install 1 gb in one slot and in the other 1x 256mb it works fine. I tried all the possible combinations and it works only if i have at least one 256mb install. Is not max gb problem. I have tried as i said all combinations. If i try only one 1 gb either of them does not boot. I forgot to say that once it boot with both 2x 1gb bios recognised them but windows said that you have a recent hardware upgrade...But this happen only the first time that i try them. Please help
