Whenever I insert an SD card or Sony Memory Stick in the memory card reader (VGP-MCA20) of my SZ, the computer doesn't recognize it. If I double click on the removable drive, it hangs the computer. I tried 16MB and 512MB SD Cards and 16MB Sony Memory Stick. All of them don't work. I tried them with my FW notebook and they work fine. So, it is not the media problem.
I tried to restore from Recovery DVD with Windows XP, install with Windows Vista and I still have the same problem.
My HP Pavillion 15 sleekbook has a digital media port on the side that does not read my Sony 64mb memory stick, although it fits fine. After being put on hold for an inexcusible amount of time the tech, that I could hardly understand said it wouldn't work. Why not, and if not what will?
I have 2 x 4GB sticks of G.SKill F3-8500CL7D-8GBSQ DDR3-1066 PC3-8500 CL7-7-7-20 SO-DIMM.
They worked perfectly as the only memory sticks in a W500, but I'd like to install them in addition to the 2 x 4GB Lenovo memory sticks that came with the W520.
Is this going to work and be stable at all? After reading the W520 specs, I'm still uncertain about the memory speeds of the two different sets of sticks and if that is a real compatibility issue. I don't know enough about memory specs.
I have a Dell Studio 1440. It has only one user replaceable memory slot. 1 GB is on board. After upgrading the RAM to 4 GB my computer had 5 GB and worked well for almost a year. Then there seemed to be a memory failure. I put the old 2 GB DIMM that came with the laptop and the laptop worked for a while. However, one day it just started beeping (4 beeps) at startup. Now, no matter what memory I put in, it just beeps. It works perfectly well with no memory in the slot i.e. with 1 GB on board. All diagnostics pass.
Why is it that the sony extended batteries come out from the bottom of the laptop(the z-axis) instead of out the back(y-axis), I kinda feel the Lenovo approach towards extended battery makes a lot more sense...
I have a question for the new Z owner with 128GB SSD.
I have been thinking about returning the unit in exchange for one with a larger SSD due to the drives lower capacity.
After reformatting and installing win7 Ultimate Office 2007, and some other things I deem as required Iam left with approximately 76 GB this includes BFBC2.
I have a few more games and some benchmark tools I like to install etc.
I would like to hear a few opinions on SD Capacity (SDHC) or Sony memory cards as an alternative for additional storage rather than returning it for the higher capacity SSD models and getting nailed with a 15% restock fees.
Do SD cards or the Sony mem Stocks have any short comings?
I bought my E6400 about a year ago now and never got around to upgrading the RAM from 2 GB (on 1 DIMM) to 4 GB. Which memory do I need? I am still running Vista Business 32-bit (haven't looked into the new Windows 7 yet). How much will a 2 GB stick run me these days, and does anyone have a link to the correct memory I need
I have a dell E6400 Latidue with 4 Gig of memory I would like to upgrade to 8 gig. I need for my building control software. Were can I find 8 gig .All I can find is the 4 gig memory updates which is what I already done...
I've tried updating the drivers and updating the registry but the CD-ROM drive is still acting weird. The software from the sony support site actually made the issue worse because now the computer doesn't even recognize the drive (did the registry update). I am willing to go into the registry and try to undo the changes however I need to know where to look (so I'm not searching blindly). Further, I'm not really a fan of going into the registry and making modifications there.
I have a Dell studio 1737. And my screen won't trun on when both Ram sticks are in, when I put one ob the bottom slot the computer boots up perfectly. When I take the bottom one out a place I. The top ram slot it doesnt boot up.
How do I go about getting a new touchpad from Dell on an in-warranty laptop? My left-click button incessantly sticks. It is not a software issue, and I am well within my warranty. I have already done the software trouble-shooting. It is a hardware issue and I'm relatively certain I need a new touchpad.
I'm using a old dell inspiron 6400 this isn't my main laptop anymore but i still love it so i want to fix it a year or 2 ago the laptop wouldn't boot i fixed it by taking one ram stick out of DIMM B i have 2 slots it use to have 512mb on each side one on dimm A and one on Dimm B. I want to use the second ram stick so i can use 1024 mb of ram. if i put them both in numlock 9 is on(and shining green) numclock A and Numlock down arrow are blinking(green).
and also i get a arrow at boot saying the ac adapter type cannot be determined please connect a dell 65w charager or better for optimal preformance and blah blah the battery will not charge and performance will decrease. I purchased to dell chargers with my laptop a 65w and a 90w they both give the sam error i did research on both my problems until i joined this and someone said that the cords were flexed and the wires weren't connecting. well both of my chargers have been flexed for 1-2 years is this why?
I have a U530. I had to restore the laptop to factory configuration. However, after the restore the MMC slot and the USB slots do not work properly. The MMC slot does not work at all. The USB slots will work with newer sticks (3.0?), but not older sticks that I have (which are properly recognized by all other PCs I have running 8.1). I went to the support site and installed the "latest" drivers, but they did not resolve the problem. I tried installing the latest firmware, but it returned "LoadImage() Failed! Access Denied. Error: Update BIOS Failed! Unload Image() Failed! Invalid Parameter. InsydeH20 - Secure Flash. Error: Firmware update failed!!! Please press any key to reset system......"
I've already spent the time to reinstall all my software and really do not have the time to try another reset to factory configuration. How to get my MMC and USB slots working properly.
I'm looking at purchasing an FW with only 2g of RAM and upgrading it myself cheaper than I can do buying it from Sony. The RAM from Sony is DDR2-800 PC2-6400. where to buy a couple 4g modules (2x4, 8g total)?
