Sony Vaio game lag only using fraction of graphics card

Hi, I'm using a Sony Vaio PCG 6R-6P and on some games it is only using a fraction of the graphics card and therefore lagging. A friend told me too find out what my graphics card capacity is and then find out how to release the full capacity(whatever that is) of the graphics card. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!

Re: Sony Vaio game lag only using fraction of graphics...

Not quiet sure what you mean by its only using a fraction of your graphics card?

If you go in to device manager it will tell you what graphics card you have.

What game is it you are trying to play?

If it is lagging then it suggest that your card isnt powerfull enough to cope with the game.

Have you tried dropping the display settings in the game to see if that helps?

Want to upgrade FPS

If you own a laptop you are limited to the Graphics Adapter, Memory, CPU, etc., that's in the machine, more or less. The Frames Per Second are what they are. What you can do is elininate porcesses that are running. Try RAZER GAME BOOSTER at:, It's freeware, you configure the processes that you want to disable. I use it on older machines with limited specs.

I have a Sony Vaio PCG-K25 laptop and am trying to upgrade to a gig of memory. Is it possible to do this? I put 2 512 memory chips in the slots but it only sees 448. Using Kingston Technology 512 mb...


This laptop has its own graphics card that doesn't rely on system memory for the graphics.

There should be no reason why its not detecting all 1GB of ram that you have installed.

Open the ram cover and make sure that you have clipped the ram into place properly.

Hi i need instructions on how to install a memory card in an old sony vaio pcg-f190 are ther any downloadable ? thanks

Hi astraspirit2. The Sony Vaio PCG-F190 uses 66MHz type memory and usually ships from Sony with 32/64MB of RAM. The Vaio PCG-F190 supports up to 192MB of RAM.
Most laptops have the memory compartment (at least the expansion socket or both) at the bottom. Flip the computer and you will see a little compartment (sometimes it even has a little chip logo). You will need a phillips #0 or #1 screwdriver. It's really simple, you insert the memory in the socket at an angle and then push it towards the laptop. I hope this helps.

I upgrade my sony vaio pcg-k35 to vista but the screen does not fit the screen what graphic or video driver do i use pls.. help me with my problem.. ihave downloaded all the drivers for vista compatability...

go to the following website, scroll down and download mobility modder. you will also need to download the lates catalyst software from ati don't worry that it isn't for your graphics card because mobility modder will change the files. finally follow all the instructions on the dh modder webpage where you downloaded it from and you can't go wrong. i used to have a sony vaio and i couldn't beleive how sony supports their customers after sale. they haven't and probably never will release a driver for these graphics cards. Shame on Sony!
