Question about Sony VAIO VGN-S460 Notebook
I have a Sony Vaio VGN-460. Stock out of the box with one exception... I bought and installed a 1Gb memory module - I installed it in the socket which is exposed and has a cver on the bottom of the laptop. Everything is fine it works, but is still slower than I would like. I would like to upgrade the CPU if possible... Is it possible to install a faster CPU? (I have done this before many times on other systems so I am technically capable/experienced) I however do not know what CPUs are compatible with the system. Can you tell me? I would also like to upgrade the memory some more. I have the system apart now (upgrading the HD). There is a memory slot inside under the keyboard. At the moment it has a 256Mb module in it. Can I upgrade this memory? What is the maximum I can install in the internal slot? I have one more issue. The cooling fan is noisy. Is it possible to replace it with a quieter one or at least a new one which is at least as quiet as it was when it was new? If so where can I purchase one? Thank you so much for all your help. AlexL
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.
