    Sony VAIO PCG 4L1L

    Hi

    Im trying to find out the compatible memory module for Sony VAIO PCG 4L1L.
    I couldnt find the model PCG 4L1L mentioned on Sony site anywhere.

    Neither is the model mentioned in crucial.com

    Is there a way to find out more about this model. Apparently its not very common. It was bought in July 2007 - not even a year old.

    Thanks

    Run Everest or Belarc. Everest will give you detailed info on the ram that comes from the rom chip that tells the OS what it is and what its timings are. If it's that new it's likely standard DDR2 sodimm (if a notebook) or dimm if a desktop.

    Thanks - but I was hoping I could do online as I got to buy the memory module online.

    Its odd that Im unable to find the particular model number on Sony's website. It was bought from NY.

    You can always pull out the RAM that's installed now and take a look at it This won't help you find the max RAM that can be installed, but you should be able to double what you've got.

    Everest and Belarc are hardware ID programs. They will identify the ram that is already in your computer. Armed with that information, it should be relatively easy to match the type.
    If it's a notebook, (you haven't told us, and based on your info, searching the model won't answer that question) remember that they have only two ram slots and both may already be used, meaning you could have to remove at least one of the current sticks. Everest will tell you not only the ram type, but the number of sticks.

    It is a notebook.
    Current RAM is 1GB. Im guessing atleast 2GB max capacity. But then most notebooks out in the last year have a max capacity of 4GB.

    There should be another model number on that system. Most of the time it's on the bottom right area of the LCD. It should be a VGN-TZ### or something like that.
