Upgrading from Windows ME too XP

8 years ago when I purchased my VAIO PCV-RX470DS Microsoft and SONY had not worked out all the "BUGS" allowing me to come off this blasted ME to an improved XP. Hard economical times will not allow me to purchase a new computer. Can I now UPGRADE to WINDOWS XP?

Sincerely,

I have added 256MB memory to my Sony PCV-RX470DS desktop but it still only shows 256MB that was already installed. Do I need to change anything in BIOS or make any kind of hardware change via jumpers or...


You may need to re-seat the memory module.

Shutdown your PC, remove the newly added memory module. and re-plug it back in, this time when you install it make sure you hear a click noise when installing it to ensure its properly installed.

I doubt you need to update the BIOS to support more memory.

Otherwise you may have a dud memory module.

When installing/removing memory ensure you are properly earthed so that you don't zap and kill the memory.

Remove outer cover


Have you checked the screws on the back? On most cases, if you look at the front of the case, it's the left that comes off, so look for any screws and any latches under the front face.

Sony Vaio - How to remove side cover?


On Sonys, you have to remove the top cover first. Look in the back and you will see 2 tabs. Pinch them together and remove the top cover, then the side should slide off.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
