Sony Vaio-s460 I removed my old 256mg memory chip from my sony Vaio. For some reason, my laptop doesn't recognize that it has new ram installed. My I click my "my computer", properties, it now says it only has 256mb of Ram. I tried removing the 1GB chip and reinstalled the previous 256mb chip. It still says 256mb. What am I doing wrong?

Probably arent fully seating the ram modules. push them into the slot until the little side levers close on their own.

How to Boot Sony Vaio VGN-S460 Laptop without CD/DVD ROM and With bootable USB


If the BIOS does not have the USB as one of the boot options then you cannot boot up with an USB memory stick.
In this case you need to replace the CD/DVD drive with a new one.

Added RAM memory and did windows disk check on my Sony Vaio desktop with Windows xp, now IE and other programs will not open. Nothing happens when icons are clicked and bottom toolbar does not load i


First, remove the memory and replace the old memory, does the help? Be sure to unplug and REMOVE battery. Second, do a system restore to before this problem. Is the memory the exact type that was removed? Open the Task Manager and look for a process "explorer.exe" select and click on "end process", in the task manager open file, New Task (run..) in Create new Task type: explorer, click on OK.

Installed 2GB of RAM (2x1GB). Laptop only recognizing 1GB. How do I get Sony Vaio VGN FS 760 to recognize 100% of RAM?


Sony VAIO VGN-FS 760/W supports PC-3200 400MHz and PC2-4200 533MHz DDR2 RAM
Expandable up to 2GB. Please make sure that both RAM Chips are according to the above specification, compatible with yout system and both sticks are the same (make & bus speed). Try using one RAM at a time and swaping RAM slots to see if the amount of memory is shown correctly. Memory is not recognized only when it is not up to the specifiction. If the RAM sticks are ok, the system shoud recognize them.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Good Luck!
Hope this helps!

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.
Leo.
