Oh Oh Vaio

system-missing

My Vaio is beginning its long, slow goodbye.

Last week I noticed that my RAM was half of what it should be.  I hoped it might be a faulty chip.

It is not a faulty chip.

After a little chip swapping (not as dirty as it sounds) it’s clear that both chips are fine.  One of the slots isn’t working.  If I’m not mistaken, that’s basically a problem with the motherboard.

So, like it or not, it is time to go looking for a new laptop.

Here’s where I need Samuel L. Jackson to scream something about a “mother******’ board”.

But I don’t think he will.
