Can my Sony Vaio be upgraded to 8GB of RAM?

Anar Uguumur February 18, 2013

I have a laptop model VAIO VPCEA16FG
Currently I have 4 GB of RAM via two 2GB memory chips. I’d like to upgrade it to at least 8, or 16 would be best.
My operating system is windows 7 x64 home edition.
If I install windows 8 ultimate will it allow me to install two 8GB memory chips?

    Although the websites like Crucial says 8GB is maximum (2x4GB), they only mention what the manufacturer provides them. There is no guarantee that 8GB modules will work per slot and I haven't found any user in my search that says that 8GB modules will or will not work, but there is a possibility. I have an Acer Aspire One AO722-0473 netbook that has 2 memory slots (1 dummy slot so only 1 memory slot usable) and the maximum that Acer and memory sellers state is 4GB RAM. Many have tried and installed an 8GB module and the system recognizes the total amount as usable. Does this mean that your system will be able to do the same? No, but there is that chance that it could. Honestly, though, 8GB is plenty unless you plan on using Photoshop, video editors, and/or virtual machines extensively.

    you can upgrade your RAM anytime 8GB but it is not good for your laptop because your other component does not support very much effectively as supporting now.
