SOURCE: How easy is it to install RAM into a new sony vaio VGN NR110 laptop


Most current laptops have a lid/panel underneath the bottom covers hiding the memory. You need to turnover the laptop and visual inspect the bottom panel/cover. Memories often are readily accessible to the user. They are underneath a lid/panel which is roughly squarish about 2 X 2 inches. It is normally held in place by small screw(s). Upon screw removal, you need to pry open the lid cover to expose the memories. Pressing sideways on the 2 retaining clips of the memory would pop it out slightly which should then be relatively easy to remove.Popping in new memory is the reverse. Diagonally insert the new memories into the slots to initially set them in. Gently but firmly press on the memories downwards to lock them in place. You will notice that the 2 retaining clips will automatically lock in place.

Alternately, for a few more, you can purchase the memory from any computer shop/store and ask them to install hereby assuring yourself that the job was done right. Further the store will not have any excuse/reason when the new memory malfunctions and can be readily replaced.

Of course yo can do it yourself, it is relatively a simple job and if you are willing to take the risk (very minimal), go for a DIY (do-it-yourself).

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Open your CPU cabinet after switching OFF the power and then try to locate the CPU battery which can be found very easily. Once you locate your battery you need to remove it once and restart your PC without the battery.

These fan are meant to run constantly at a low power and on high when using a lot of processing power (like playing a game or HD movie).
I would boot into Dell diagnostic and make sure the high and low settings of the fan aqre working properly it may be that the fan is on high all the time when it should be in low mode.
Dell Diag. Press F12 at boot Select Dell Diagnostics Go through the basic diagnostic ~5 minutes After basic diag the advanced diagnostic will start Go through the menu and select the Fan test

Does Intel DH61BF motherboard supports 4GB 1600Mhz RAM ?

OK, I was looking for a solution, but hardly got anything that clarify if it's compatible or not. But what I did find out is that if you install a 1600MHz memory stick, this one will clock down to 1333MHz in order for the MB not to crash. Here is a C/P.

Part #: 2xCT102464BA160B • 16GB (2x 8GB Kit) • DDR3-1600 - 1600Mhz - PC3-12800 • CL11 • Dual Rank • Non-ECC • Unbuffered • 1.5V • 16-chip 512Mx8 • Lifetime Advance Replacement Warranty • This 1600 MHz module is programmed to clock down to 1333 / 1066MHz where the system requires it.

How to ram upgrade

After doing a little research online, I see that the maximum memory supported for this laptop is 8GB. You currently have 4 GB. You would need to purchase this upgrade kit:

8GB Kit (4GBx2)
DDR3 PC3-12800 • CL=11 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR3-1600 • 1.35V • • Part #: CT3912184

You can install this kit by opening the square panel's on the bottom of the laptop. The panels are about 3 inches wide and are held closed by a screw.

Having problems upgrading my GatewayDX4840-11e to 32GB of memory.

Memory Type: DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-12800, DDR3 PC3-8500, DDR3 PC3-14900, DDR3 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 32GB
Slots: 4
Each memory slot can hold DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-12800, DDR3 PC3-8500, DDR3 PC3-14900 with a maximum of 16GB kit (8GBx2) per slot.*
*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.


Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS.

Thank You

Which the best laptop i need a quad processor and good specs in my laptop

Before deciding the make and model of the laptop, I recommend that you may consider the specifications, Operating System, Size and Weight, Wi-fi Connectivity, Battery Life etc. and above all Warranties & Support at your city/ country level, which is of prime importance in case the laptop malfunctions at any later stage.
I suggest that you may checkout Sony VAIO or Dell Inspiron Series.
New series of Intel processors (with multi-threading) are Core i3, i5 and i7. i3 & i5 have 2 Physical Processing Units, whereas, i7 has 4
Physical Processing Units. RAM up to 4GB/6GB/8GB and storage capacity (hard disk) up to 250/350/500/1000GB are common in new models. High Definition Audio and video is a must as well. Wireless-N (up to 300 Mbps data rate) should also be available.
So, look for the laptop with above specification and decide the make/ model after actually having a look at it.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!
