PC doesn't boot with 1GB memory chip
Posted on 2009-02-19
The computer is Sony Vaio VGC-RB41P
the current RAM is PC-3200, 2x256MB
I tried to install 2x1GB PC 3200 - but when I turn the computer on nothing happens - no sounds, no picture, nothing. The first time even the power supply went dead.
I order different memory and it happened again. Sony says the system can take up to 2GB but they can't tell me if it accepts chips bigger than 512MB. I assume it should accept as I have similar model (VGC-RB41P) which works fine with 2x1GB. I don
t want to waste any more days expecting a sensible answer from Sony - so if anyone has an idea what could be the problem, please let me know ASAP.
