    When looking at new RAM and HDDs, you need to consider what type they are, but a HDD for laptops are all generally IDE, i have seen very few SATA HDDs for laptops, but RAM comes in many different forms. You need to closely check the specs of the RAM, the 3 main catergories are DDR, DDR2 and DDR3. in the majority of cases, you cannot mix and match ram, they must be identicle in order to install it. Can i get you to confirm what RAM you have and then ill help you further, also ill need you to confirm what HDD you have at the moment and ill help you to install that too

Hi,
You can only upgrade the memory to 1GB in that model Vaio laptop.

The memory supported is DDR SDRAM which runs at 333MHz. There are 2 memory slots which support 1x512 module in each slot.
I recommend Kingston RAM as the manufacturer.

As for the HDD the laptop supports EIDE (IDE/ATA) hard drive. you can have anything up to 320GB. Seagate are excellent drives as well as Fujitsu.


Regards.

Performance is very slow of sony model pcg 4fil


In windows go to Start -> Run type msconfig and hit enter. Go to startup tab and go through and uncheck everything that you do not what to run at the start of your pc. Click ok and then agree to restart. It will give you a message when you restart that things were changed and just hit ok.
Also you would get alot better performance if you uprgade your RAM. You need PC 2100 DDR. It is easy to install. You just unscrew a bottom piece of your case off and insert the chip. You can also take it to places that sell RAM and they will sometimes install it for free if you buy the memory from them.

Hi,

When you formatted the hard disk of the laptop, the appropriate drivers were also erased. It is therefore necessary to reinstall the drivers and specifically for your concern, the VGA Display. Pls click here to view available downloads for the Sony PCG-TR3A. You would be particularly interested with the Intel Graphics Controller Driver.

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

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
