The number of posts about issues with 4GB memory in Windows based machines? I take it you are repeating this experience as well.
So I've had this problem for a little while now but only recently had the gumption to figure it out. Basically, my PC (Sony VAIO RB60G) was unable to restart under either XP or Vista. After some much dreaded investigative work, I've determined that its the extra memory (2GB PNY DDR2 533Mhz PC4200) I bought. If I take out the two 1gb dimms, she restarts like the good ol' days.
So now I have a dilemma?well, its really not much of a dilemma since I'd rather have the extra 2 gb of memory and just have to shut down instead of restarting?BUT, I would like to solve it if possible. I think I remember reading somewhere that this VAIO maxes out at 2GB memory, but there are four slots, and Windows (both XP & Vista) seem to register the extra memory fine, so why not, right?
Anyone have any ideas?
Any help would be very much appreciated, thanks!
