Hi, my VAIO is presently running 4gb of RAM. I beleive this unit can be expanded to a maximum of 6gb and wondered if anyone can tell me what type of ram and how many slots?? Is it DDR3 or different and what size block do I need. Can I do this myself or do I need to take it back to where I bought it..... Thank you in advance.
Hi Rich, thank you for the information, very helpful indeed. If I do upgrade to 8gb, am I likely to see an improved performance on my laptop. I use it mainly for my photography, lots of graphics etc. Thank you again.
I have a similar question: I want to buy a second 4GB memory module, but since there are so many brands and options I don't know how to ensure that a memory module that I order on-line would work in my Vaio.
Memory Size (GB)
Memory Speed (MHz)
4 GB (SO-DIMM) x 1
So when I am shopping for memory, do I need to check the number of pins, or what do I need to look for? Very few vendors seem to offer SDRAM, and when they do they say that it is for use in Apple machines! My model number is not included in those listed by Crucial and other vendors (it is a current EH series configured Vaio).
The problem is that I have not yet bought the computer but am still working out exactly what I need and the total I will need to spend. So I cannot scan a computer that I don't yet own!
Maybe the Old Hobbit could do a scan and tell us the answer, since his RAM specifications seem to be exactly the same as mine. Or maybe you could be kind enough to tell me the key pieces of information that I need in order to search the vendors of memory modules?
And a warning to anyone else reading this thread: I visited another memory vendor's site and it did list the model number for "my" configured Vaio, but I am pretty sure that the module it recommended was wrong (it did not use SDRAM technology, but maybe that doesn't matter?).
