How do I remove the 256 MB RAM from #2 memory slot from sony vaio vgn-fs920? Answered

My Sony Vaio VGN-GF920 laptop will not power up. A/C adapter is working fine. I read on the web that if you remove the memory in the #2 slot that this would solve the problem. Just want to make sure I am doing it correctly. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Lisa

You run a risk of voiding your warranty and possible damage to your lappy if you open it. However I'm a destructive kind of guy, so I say go for it!

A word of caution though, removing your RAM will cause your computer to run slower. Like ridiculously slow. And considering that you only have 256Mb going, this may not be a good idea. However if you're gung-ho all you'd need to do is unplug your computer, take out the battery, grab a small http://www.wassco.com/prodimagefolders/03/WAS-03-29260.jpg to take off the back, look around for http://www.pcextreme.net/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/computer-ram.jpg, there may be a small tab you need to release to get it to come out, from there just cover your lappy back up and try it out!

Hope this helps!
