Put more ram in the laptop is the most economical solution at the moment, as it is so cheap.
your laptop can have 2 gig in total
other solutions that cost nothing

  • remove all unwanted software off the hard drive.( to make room for virtual memory)
  • empty recycle bin
  • run anti spy-ware software
  • defrag the hard drive
  • set virtual memory to 2 times physical ram
  • set performance settings to "adjust for best performance",go to device manager/advanced tab to do this
  • go to start/run ,type "msconfig" go to start up tab and deselect any software not needed at boot up,
  • leave anti virus,anti spy ware,and any firewall selected.
  • when you reboot a box will open saying you have been in making changes ,put a tick in the box at top right so it does not show again.

hope this helps you
please rate my efforts if worthy
good luck
Terry

Speed up a Sony Vaio Laptop Model PCG-5B1L


Start by installing this program CCLEANER found here: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ Run the cleaner, registry delete the results. Go to TOOLS> STARTUP disable all programs you do not need to start at windows startup. Next, Install MALWAREBYTES found here: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ Run a FULL scan , delete any results. NEXT, open IE9 in the top right corner of the page is a "gear" icon, left click>Manage add-ons, Toolbars and extentions, disable any TOOLBARS and the add-ons you do not need, move down to Search Providers, delete ones you do not use. Toolbars and extra search engines are killers on IE speed. Trim the weight to speed up you web broswer. The more that added to your broswer the slower it's go to be. Same with your laptop at startup.

I need a motherboard for the SONY VAIO PCG-272M


You maybe able to get a motherboard from Sony, but if it was me I would put my money towards a new laptop which would be better and faster.
You can remove the hard drive and put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

HAVE TRIED CHANGE THE CMOS BATTEWHAT CAN I DO NXTRY TO REMOVE BIOS PASSWORD BUT IT COUDNT WORK,?


Sony Vaio PCG and some Vaio VGN Series use the last 7 digits of the laptop serial number to calculate the bios master password. The serial number for a Sony Vaio is often located on the bottom of the laptop on a white sticker. The serial number may also be found by removing the battery and checking in the battery compartment. The link to unlockbiosrecovery.com below works on the following models:
PCG-C, PCG-F, PCG-GR, PCG-GRS, PCG-GRT, PCG-GRV, PCG-GRX, PCG-GRZ, PCG-N, PCG-NV205, PCG-QR, PCG-R, PCG-SR, PCG-SRX, PCG-TR, PCG-V, PCG-VX, PCG-X, PCG-Z, VGN-B, VGN-FS, VGN-S, VGN-T, VGN-TX1, VGN-X
I use http://www.unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_Sony_Bios.php
For $20 they use the last 7 digits of the laptop serial number to calculate the bios master password and then email it to you in an hour. They guarantee it to work and you can call them if you have a question.

Sony PCG TR3A hard disk is pooched. Can it be fixed with 6oGB?


all hard drives run at the same speed, if its a sata drive data access is quicker but that is memory relient, you can repace the hard drive but you'd have to shop around for a good deal, i recomend seagate because they have a five year warranty on them, installing them is fairly easy you'll just have to install a brand new operating system as new hard drives come unformatted
