  1. I have VPCYB15AG Netbook, over 4 years old. This summer for the first time I have noticed higher than usual heating along the left side air vents and beneath. Is there anything that can be done about it? System monitoring apps show around 70 C (158 F) CPU temperature. Could this be happening as the laptop is now old? Is it easy to open the back panel (I have those screwdrivers) and clean the CPU heat sink, apply thermal paste etc for Y series laptop? Thanks.
  2. Thanks Syrius..yes... as I explore a few more specs across other models I find that wherever RAM seems upgradable, specs do clearly mention that. e.g. one from SVE1513CYNB Pre-installed/Max 2 GB (2 GB (SO-DIMM) x 1) DDR3 SDRAM*2 (upgradeable up to 8 GB*3)
  3. Hi..I have Vaio VPCYB15AG with WIndows 7 32bit. Now it's archived / discontinued model. It came with 2GB RAM and one unused RAM slot. I am planning to add another 2 GB. However need to know if that's supported by this model. Memory Specs on regional site http://www.sony.co.in/product/vpcyb15ag Pre-installed/Max 2 GB (2 GB x 1) DDR3 SDRAM (MAX) SO-DIMM slots DDR3 SO-DIMM slots (Unused Memory slot 1) Memory Speed 1066 MT/s Output from Speccy (system info software) RAM Type DDR3 Size 2048 MBytes Manufacturer Nanya Technology Max Bandwidth PC3-10700 (667 MHz) DRAM Frequency 532.0 MHz Motherboard Model VAIO (N/A) Version C9012X4A I am bit confused with the spec Pre-installed/Max. while 2 GB is pre-installed, it just mentions as (MAX) does it mean this laptop board can only support 2GB MAX? Also if another 2GB is supported, can 1066 and 1333 coexists on board? Thanks.
  4. Hello Everyone, I have Sony Vaio VPCYB15AG laptop. It's about 1.5 years old and out of warranty. It’s time I need to replace the HDD. Existing one gets detected in BIOS but has almost failed. Sony Center engineer suggested not to go for Advanced format HDD. I guess today most of the HDDs could very well be AF. Also the one I already have in the laptop is Toshiba MK 3259GSXP & it seems to be AF. Would it cause any issues while installing Win 7 starter. I have the recovery disks created earlier. Any guidance would be great. Thanks.
