VGN-NW320F RAM Upgrade

Hello Community!

 

My laptop is quite slow on startup and launching Chrome and other apps. Mem utilization gets as high as 88%.

 

Can this Vaio be upgraded? If so, where can I find instructions?

Re: VGN-NW320F RAM Upgrade

I  copy/pasted your  'subject line'  into  google.ca search field;

 

Here are a couple sample websites (extrapolated from over 10 pages of links) that seem to indicate upgradable;

 

http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for//vaio-vgn-nw320f

 

https://www.mrmemory.co.uk/memory-ram-upgrades/sony/vaio-laptop/vgn-nw320f

 

Presume you also chkd your regional Sony esupport portal for your specific model for  additional manuals and how-to (which they have 'cause i fd when upgrading my VPCEL yrs ago)

sample; http://docs.esupport.sony.com/pc/VPCEG1_EH1_EJ1_EL1_series/EN/contents/02/01/03/03.html

 

 

good luck

B-T-W  As part of my recent reno' of my VPCEL platform (included a SSD upgrade from the hdd, see other thread post)  I also selectively uninstalled some of the Sony Vaio  "bloatware" . . . . .

 

 

 

ie. Vaio _'Update _'Gate_ 'Smartnetwork _'TransferSupport _'Improvement 

 

One of the sites I used to review these utilities before deleting was;

http://w*******move***m/V***Gate-5**rogram****spx 

{Mod editted out here ! .... not me, so if you wish the website url referred to send PM Smiley Happy }

 

(yes they do have pop-ups,  but just clik on the X right-a-way and ignore the offers of purchasing various software !  I read the first couple sections and usually ignore the rest)

 

 

nite,

D'

 

 

p.s. Yes, Kudos  IMHO are the digital form of an appreciative ThankYou   !!  Smiley Happy

Thank you. I will uninstall and see how much speed improves. I don't do media.
