Well the made that model for a few years now. Chances are it will only go up to 1gb total. The processor is another story. You need to take the case apart to get to it,good luck, & then find out what it has as far as what socket number it uses. Then go find a better one with the same voltage requirements.

Memory stick upgrade 2 512, 2 1GB what order do I put them in


On the motherboard they should be labeled as to which slot is Dimm 1, Dimm 2, Dimm 3 and Dimm 4. Put the larger ones (1GB) in Dimm 1 and Dimm 2. The smaller ones (512MB) in Dimm 3 and Dimm 4.

What is the max ram upgrade for Itel Willamette 1.70 GHZ, 400 MHZ 128 ?Please.


that depends on your motherboard if you have 2,3 or 4 slots,first 400 MHZ that means DDR1 so check the specification on your type of motherboard usualy un slot support a maximum off 1gb but older only 512 per slot this is valid for motherboard witch support DDR 1.

I have problem about ram


If the manual says this motherboard support up to 1 GB RAM, you cannot put 2 GB. You can put 2x 512 GB RAM or 1GB RAM
Also try to upgrade your bios, maybe a better bios version supports more than 1 GB RAM.

Can the memory be upgraded (increased) from the basic (factory installed) 512mb on the Sony PCV-W300G?


Hi there.
As far as i know you can upgrade the RAM to 2GB, 2x1GB 184pin PC2100 DDR DIMM Desktop RAM modules is what it can take.


Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Ram upgrade on Sony Viao PCVRS420


You can use even 1 stick of 2GIG of RAM or 2 X 1GIG of RAM or any combination will do for as long it will just be a max of 2GIG since that's the max support of your motherboard....

Upgrade from 512MB to 1GB


The specs on the memory are correct, so you purchased the correct type of memory for this motherboard. If your getting no video when you power on with the 1gb stick, I would be willing to bet the 1gb stick is bad. Can you return it and try another stick?
