Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-B3VP Notebook ?

I have a vgn-b3vp (pcg-5b1m) sony laptop, can i upgrade the memory if it has 512 of none-removable memory and only 1 bank.


Answers :

You can put another 512mb in under the keyboard but thats all, that computer only supports up to 1gb of RAM I think.
Yes, you can use the 1 bank and get higher graded memory, another 512 in the 1 bank would make 1gig, you can probable get as much as 2 gig in the bank to make a total of 2.5 gigs by buying a 2 gig memory stick.
