If you mean the memory stick itself, yes.

If you mean the slot that the memory stick fits into, no. You would have to replace the motherboard or just get a new laptop. Motherboards can be quite pricey.

Sony vaio does not read a 2GB memory stick. any solution how to fix? thanks


Depends on how old the Vaio computer is. If the computer is over 5 years old, they won't read anything above 1GB. I have the same problem and the only "possible" sollution is to buy a new, external card reader and see if the solves the problem. I have yet to try this myself.

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.

Upgrade on Memory Card


When you said memory cards i assume you mean the RAM. You can just take out the ram and put in new ones. Nothing else.

Sony Vaio Laptop PCG 9U1M


PCG-K415B is the correct model number the label is possibly the service tage or something.

Here are the specifications of your laptop
  • Intel Celeron D Processor 345 3.06GHz / 533MHz FSB
  • 512MB DDR SDRAM - Low cost double memory Offer - call for details
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD Dual Layer Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs, DVD+, DVD- and large Dual Layer DVD
  • 15.4" XGA xblacklogo.jpg Widescreen TFT Screen
  • ATI Mobility Radeon 345M 64MB shared graphics
  • Integrated wireless 802.11b/g LAN - Call for advice on Wireless networking
  • Integrated 3-in-1 card reader –Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, Memory Stick Duo
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition
  • Includes Sony Software Bundle
My guess is that the laptop is around 1 or 1and half year old as the celeron 3.06GHz is a relatively new processor.
