MAXIMUM PROCESSOR UPGRADE ON MY SONY PCV-RX550 NOW LIMPING AT 1.5


At most you could get a 1.9 first gen P4. Add to that the fact that the maximum memory you can install in it is 512MB and you can see that you have an obsolete machine.
Just replace it as a whole, it will be cheaper.

Is my Sony VAIO PCV-RS226 PC Desktop upgradeable to windows 7 ?


it's possible to install windows 7 on your Sony VAIO PCV-RS226 PC Desktop, but your 512Mb memory are insufficient to run properly the operating system. Windows 7 have a power graphic, if you still use a small memory your PC will work very slowly. The solution is:
  1. install more memory to work fast (2*512Mb or more)
  2. don'nt install a game that use more memory, it fatigue the machine and can cause an intermittent problem.

How to upgrade RAM memory what to buy and is anything else be upgraded before this


It is a very simple thing to upgrade your Ram which is a great idea since you have only 512 MB. I suggest you buy at least 1 GB or more if you can afford it. Go to the link I am posting and let them scan your computer. They will tell you exactly what you can install and the price. This is a reputable site I use all the time. This will require a download of the scanner tool which is perfectly safe. http://www.crucial.com/

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.
