I have a Sony Vaio Laptop that is a few years old now, and it has 1gb of ram. Now when I go onto sony's support page and look at the specs for this machine, it says it can have a MAX of 1gb of ram. Is this really true? I didn't think there was a hardware limit for ram. I always figured they said that just because at the time you couldn't get bigger laptop ram sticks.

So I think mine has two 512mb sticks of ram in it. If I bought two 1gb sticks and put it in, would windows xp no recognize it? Does this maximum limit really exist?

sorry if this is a stupid question :)

Howdy:

Yes, it really exists. If the manufacturer says that is the max, then that is the max.

I agree with Murray S. and if you want to check it online:

Go HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system. You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.
