[REQUEST] Sony Vaio VGN-NR460E >2GB RAM support
#1
My Sony Vaio VGN-NR460E laptop will not POST with more than 2GB of RAM installed. I have included a dump of the current BIOS version as an attachment to see if it can be modified to enable increased RAM support, as well as any other menus that can be enabled.

Your laptop is based on GL960 chipset. It has hardware limits for memory in first slot. It can't be solved by BIOS mod.
Install 1GB in first slot and 2GB in second.

Interesting! When I've tried to add a 1GB stick it's caused the laptop to BSOD when attempting to start Windows, I'll have to swap the slots and see if that fixes it.

EDIT: Sure enough, swapping the RAM was enough to get the system to boot into Windows without blue screening, thank you!
