If it has 4 slots and supports 2Gb max with 2 slots currently populated with 2 x 256mb chips you'll need to remove both those chips and install 4 x 512mb chips to reach the max of 2 Gb.

Ram is installed on the bottom of the laptop. there should be a small compartment about the size as the RAM sticks. Make sure you get laptop ram as desktop ram wont fit. From there you just push on the fins of the ram to pop them up slide one out replace and push back down to lock again.

if you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.


first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system


you should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility before making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible


hope this helps

Can I do a memory upgrade on Sony VGC -LS 37E?


the specs for your computer, it states that it is equipped with 2gb of memory 2x1gb and max at 2gb, so I doubt that any higher memory upgrade installed would work, or else it would cause your system to crash or even damage it.

The computer uses an internal video chip which also taps the main PC memory (DDR 400MHz SDRAM).

I would look at upgrading the RAM if the PC has less than 1gig of RAM in it. I suspect it only has 256 or 512mb in it.

To find out, just right click on the my computer destop Icon and choose (left click) on properties. It should list the ram with the chip speed with the words "of Ram" after it.
