I need to insatll a new memory card in my sony VGC-V517G computer how do I open it up?


Sony eSupport>VAIO VGC-V517G>Manuals,

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=VGCV517G

On this page l would like you to left-click on - VAIO User Guide, under the Manuals heading.

A small window will pop up on the left side of the screen. It took almost 30 seconds before I saw the first page. The screen was white in the meantime.
(PDF file is downloading in the background)

In the Bookmarks to the left, scroll down to -
Upgrading and Maintaining Your VAIO Computer, and left-click on the + sign to expand the file.

Left-click on Installing Memory.
(Page 91)

Page 92 has details, and illustrations, on removing the computer back cover.

Barring something prevents you from downloading this PDF file;

1) Computer off, and unplugged from power.

2) Observe Anti-Static precautions

[Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the hardware components inside a computer.

Computer unplugged from power, computer on a table, computer case open, TOUCH an unpainted surface of the metal frame.

This will relieve your body of Static.

Should you get up, and walk away in the middle of working on your computer, upon your return Touch the metal frame again ]

3) Disconnect any Peripheral devices connected to your computer.

Advise lay a clean towel on the table.
Gently lay the computer down on the towel, LCD screen face down.

4) Slide the back cover towards the top of the LCD screen.
It will only slide up so far, then the top of the back cover, is tilted towards the back of the computer, and lifted off.
Set the back cover aside.

5) Back of the computer towards you, the Ram Memory Cover is on the Right side.

The cover looks like a panel. It is rectangular shaped. There are two screws holding the cover on. Remove these two screws, lift the Memory Cover off.

The Ram Memory modules are right there.

Need further guidance in removing and installing ram memory modules, state in a Comment.
(Believe upper right of your page is the Comment button)

Problem with Sony Vaio pcv-rx860 (screen goes black at startup)


I would suggest first to try to take one stick of memory out and try to boot up the pc. Sometimes, one or both of the memory sticks can go bad or the memory slot on the motherboard itself can go bad. If that is not the case I would then remove all of the usb connected to the computer and last i would test the power supply.

Won't boot


Try pressing F8 as your machine gets ready to start windows. Keep tapping it until you get a menu. You can try "most recent settings that worked" or failing that try starting Windows in safe mode. If it will start in safe mode regress it to a point before your failed download using System Restore. If it won't start at all, you may need to reinstall Windows.

Hello Phil 65
Happy Holidays
well, the best bet for you, is uninstall the Driver for your video card, from device manager , and ADD/Remove programs, your other features for the particular video card. ONLY.
then go ahead and restart your PC, reinstall drivers according, and have your CD for video drivers and settings program.
that should restore your video , ....or use the Windows Restore point feature to a date all work fine.
good luck
