Yeah, I had mine for two years without any problems as well... then all at once the booting problems started up resulting in me having to reformat the entire thing back to factory settings to get it to even boot. Now, since I have the desktop, I don't use it often enough to know if the boot issues are entirely fixed, but regardless when I can I'm going to have it checked out for that memory slot issue.

Well, I have the Best Buy 3 year plan on it, so that should help....I hope it doesn't become a problem, but oh well.

Laptops are inherently problematic as a whole, really.  If yours holds up for a while, it's a good one.

TE, did you get the "blue screen of death" (my Tech's term for it) when the system crashed, along with a message that it was dumping the physical memory.

If so, maybe I'm looking at the wrong problem area.  I was convinced that it was my hard drive with an overheating issue.

Yep! That's the one - I finally got the message to hang around for more then a tenth of a second so I could read it.

Apparently the memory stick can slip out of the slot on the mother board because of how it was designed/ built. Sometimes putting the stick in another slot fixes it, but not always.

I think around page 35 or so of that discussion thread I linked to there's a post about someone that fixes the issue in the Vaios. It has the email and phone number if you want to ask him about it. I think I have his site bookmarked...

This should be it: http://www.laptopbios.com/

My Vaio Desktop has been out of action since january.  The screen smears each time the mouse moves.  At first i was convinced it was my video card but now i'm thinking memory problem.  I got so tired of tryin to fix it that we just upgraded to a new computer now the Vaio is collecting dust

I love it when this board takes a big dump on itself, then eats the poop its covered in, and poops out the poop that it just ate. I love that.
