Default Sony Vaio PCG-K13 RAM Supported

I am planning on upgrading my laptop's RAM, and it says that the maximum supported memory is 2x512mb in each slot. My video card uses up 128mb of that ram, so it will actually be less than 1gb. I am wondering, can I put 1gb of memory in one slot and leave an already installed 256mb ram in the other? It says it supports only 512mb in each slot. Does that mean it can't run a 1gb in one slot?

Hello,

Go to:

Memory upgrades, flash media, and usb storage at Crucial.com

There they will scan your PC and tell you exactly what you need and can do. From there just find a better price for the RAM you need.

Cheers,
Mak

Actually, that's what led me to asking my question, lol. I ran the crucial test, and it said maximum supported in each slot is 512mb. I'm guessing that means that 1 slot can't handle 1gb?

Hello,

Yes that would be correct. If the max a slot can hold is 512MB then you could not run a 1GB chip in there.

Cheers,
Mak
