What exactly is a TV stick?...... Slingbox?

You mean a SD memory card?
What are you going to display? pictures? videos? streaming TV?

Most current name brand laptops will output to a TV through S-Video, RCA or VGA adapters, but you need to check the specs when purchasing. How much would you like to spend and what other activities would you use it for?

Can the LG Xnote RD405 laptop intially with 1gb RAM be upgraded to 4 gb using two 2gb RAM's ? Please help me by providing an answer clearly, Thanks in Advance.

Here is the memory specifications from LG.

Maximum Size: Each slot is 1024MB and can be expanded to 2048MB.
SO DIMM Type for Memory Expansion: DDR2 SDRAM SO-DIMM (256MB, 512MB, 1024MB)

It can take a maximum of 2 gigabytes of ram. It will take two 1 gb sticks. It uses DDR2 laptop ram. You need to check to see if you have one stick that has 1 gb or 2 sticks that have 512 mb each. That will tell you if you need to buy one or two sticks of ram at 1 gb each. You will be able to tell a difference going from one gb to two gb of ram. I think it would be worth the investment if you plan on using the computer for another year or more.

Computer freezes during booting

Quite possibly a bad stick of RAM. Is it an older computer? If it's new, and covered under warranty, pursue that with the place of purchase. It's a LOT cheaper to buy a stick of RAM yourself than to get someone to do it for you, so check the bottom of the laptop. There should be a couple of panels that can be unscrewed. The one you're looking for should be roughly 4" by 4 or 5". Open it up, and check the sticks of RAM. Is there one or two? They look like this: Make sure your computer is off when you check/remove/replace RAM sticks.
If there are two RAM sticks, remove one, and then start it. Still freezes? Carefully replace the stick you removed MAKE SURE it is firmly reseated, and remove the other stick and reboot. This should do it. If it is starting normally, take the faulty stick of RAM into a computer repair or product shop, and ask for a stick of DDR2 laptop memory. Make sure it is the same size 1G, 512MB etc as the stick you removed, as RAM usually likes to be the matching amount with its friend. If it has one RAM stick, remove it, take it to a computer shop, and buy the same size stick. It's easy to install yourself. Hope this helped, any further problems, please let me know and I will be happy to help.

How to boost your pc memory

It all depends on what you mean by boost. I would recommend just buying better/more ram with a better CAS latency and/or speed then the current RAM you have to the fastest compatible RAM for your system. If you need further assistance please let me know and please confirm the model number of your laptop.
Thank you,

99% of laptops (not netbooks, IE: under 14" screen size) are able to view TV with.

To make things easier, you should buy a card reader. There are different types.

MS Pro Card Reader - Is ONLY for the sony memory cards

Multi Card Reader - Will read sD, xD, Ms Pro Duo, Ms Pro, Compact Flash, Smart Media, etc.

Sony has a new memory stick out called the memory stick pro duo. Your P73 does not take this. The P73 takes the Memory Stick Pro. Which is a longer stick. You can go out to best buy or ritz camera and buy a card reader (Memory Stick Pro) and stick your memory card into the card reader and stick that into your USB port on your computer. Since it is USB, this will require NO SOFTWARE.

Your camera came out in 2004. Vista did not come out until early 2007. A lot of software does not work with vista.

Stick Micro M2 Memory Card

Don't know the size of the micro with its adapter, but if it is the size of a duo card you should be able to put your micro with adapter into a Pro adapter and this is the memory stick that most card readers accept. Sony has been pretty much backward compatible so I feel this should work. A Pro adapter runs about $10 @ Best Buy.

The memory is located under a panel on the bottom of the machine. The chips are very easy to replace. Go to the link bellow, it will tell you the max memory and the frequency that your machine will hold. The frequency is very important, it is the type of memory and will be in either pc or mhz, ie.. pc2700, pc4200, pc 5300 etc.. or 266mhz, 333mhz, etc.. Make sure you buy the right frequency memory or it won't work.

Memory stick

well, best buy usually doesn't sell memory sticks, its newer version is memorystick duo
the duo does come with a memorystick adapter
so, just go to any store that sells memory sticks such as bestbuy, walmart, target, etc, and you can buy one there
they should be $20-$50
