Question about Sony VAIO FX150K Notebook

2 Answers

I have a Sony Vaio FX802 with 384 MB ram, split 1 x 256MB and 1 x 128MB across 2 banks. Last week I noticed that I was running on 256MB only so I re-seated the 128MB module and that seemed ok for a time, but again dropped out with a BSOD. I have since inserted a new 256MB module replacing the 128MB one, but this is still not recognised, yet it seems to be seated ok. Any thoughts?

I think, there may be some problem with the slots.
Try installing each RAM separately. If your PC recognize each RAM separately, then check Installing in separate slots.
The main motive of this excercise is to find whether RAMs & Slots are OK.
All the Best.

When adding new memory always take all memory out, reinsert the new 256mb stick into the first memory socket dimm1 normally, boot the laptop up, if the laptop boots then fine the memory module is ok, shut down and insert the original 256mb into the second slot, dimm2 then boot the laptop it should now boot normally, if not there maybe problems with the memory slot itself, give it blow to get rid of any dust and try again, if this dosent work post back.

What is the maximum RAM, I can add to my DDR1 Dell PC computer Desk top?


The maximum memory that your laptop can allocation is 256 mb only. Since there are two slots you can put 128mb for each slot. Sorry, you cannot use memory from your desktop to your laptop. You can view the actual memory you can use by following this link http://www.memory-up.com/Memory/SonyVAIOPCG-FFG448.html

Ram 256 MB but show 128 MB pls send solution


If you have an existing 128Mb RAM module and inserted another 128Mb to give you a total of 256Mb and it stills shows 128Mb. Then the second RAM module may not be compatible or the second RAM module is faulty.
Try and use the same make and type RAM module as the original or insert a 512Mb RAM module instead of two 128Mb RAM modules. There is not much price gap between 512 and 256 Mb RAM.

I have an Acer TravelMate 514T PC Notebook running with only 64MB RAM, and I want to put in a 256 MB RAM. How do I make the notebook recognize the 256 MB RAM card?


Mostly what I came across this models they only can detect until 128 mb and they do run a little faster than having 64 mb.And see if the card is pc100. and it is also dependent on what is your operating system is.If your notebook memory slot is two get two 128mb and you'll have 256mb.

I have a dimension 4100, and only have 512 in ram because it only has 2 slots, is there any way to use a bigger stick to increase ram?


Yes, if only one slot is being used you can install another 512 MB of ram which will give you 1024 MB or 1GB. If both slots have 256 MB in each one then you will need to just buy a 1GB strip of Ram. Go to the link I am posting and let them scan your computer. They will tell you exactly what you can install and the price. This is a site I use all the time and it is reputable and safe with good prices. This will require a download of the scanning tool which is safe. Allow the download. http://www.crucial.com/

Just need to know how to change the ram in my Sony Vaio PCG-v505ap


visit vaio manual in
ftp://ftp.vaio-link.com/pub/Manuals/Notebooks/
You can do this in two ways: opening your notebook and taking a look on the memory modules already installed (we will explain more about this later) or running a program like Everest (available on our download section). We ran Everest (going to Motherboard, Chipset, Memory Slots) on our notebook and found that it was using two 256 MB DDR-SDRAM PC2700 (“DDR333”) modules, for a total of 512 MB.
imageview.php?image=1680
click to enlarge
Figure 1: Checking your current memory configuration with Everest.
If your notebook has an empty memory slot, just go to the computer store and buy a new SO-DIMM module with the same technology (SDRAM or DDR-SDRAM) and speed of any capacity you want – of course you need to know the capacity limit of your notebook. You cannot install a 1 GB module in a notebook that only accepts modules up to 512 MB, for example. Our notebook – a Sony Vaio PCG-V505ECP – accepts modules up to 1 GB, for a total of 2 GB RAM, since it has two memory slots.
For example, if your notebook has one 256 MB module and an empty memory slot, if you buy and install another 256 MB module, it will have 512 MB RAM. If you buy and install a 512 MB module, your notebook will have 768 MB.
If your notebook already has two memory modules, you will need to remove one of the installed modules in order to install the new one. If the two modules have the same capacity, it doesn’t matter which one you will take away, but if they have different capacities, remove the one with smaller capacity. The new RAM capacity of your notebook will be of the capacity of the remaining module plus the capacity of the new module.
In our case, our notebook has two 256 MB modules. So we will remove one of these modules and install a new one on its place. We bought a 1 GB-module, so after installing it our notebook will have 1,280 MB RAM installed (memory math is tricky, since 1 GB equals to 1,024 MB not 1,000; so 1,024 MB + 256 MB = 1,280 MB).

I want to upgrade my ram what type of ram should i use and how what is the maximum amount of ram i can upgrade to?


Hi,
Memory Upgrade for Sony VAIO PCG-K35 Laptop, the Sony VAIO PCG-K35 Laptop takes the PC2100 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs Memory Type, and comes installed with 512 MB = 256 MB (removable) + 256 MB (removable) of Memory. You can upgrade your Sony VAIO PCG-K35 Laptop to up to a maximum of 1.0 GB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install Memory, already with 512 MB = 256 MB (removable) + 256 MB (removable) standard Memory installed. For best Laptop performance use the maximum amount of allowed Memory per slot for your Laptop.
