I am actually relieved that I didn't proceed with trying to adjust the RAM. Not blaming you at all- it just turns out that VAIO's are designed differently in that the RAM sticks have delicate wires connecting it to the motherboard.
If I had proceeded I would have severed said wire and turned my pc into a doorstop. Thanks anyways for helping me.
WHo told you that I have worked on numerous Vaio's and none of those have ever had that laptop or desktop.
Ram is ram, it only goes in one way it is sticks that you put in or take out.
There are no wires attached to them.
