Upgrading your VAIO computer
Upgrading your VAIO computer
The following procedures assume familiarity with the general terminology associated with PCs and with the
regulatory compliance required for modifying electronic equipment.
Observe proper safety precautions at all times.
Your VAIO desktop and memory modules use high precision components and electronic connector
technology. To avoid the invalidation of your guarantee by mishandling, it is recommended that:
You contact your local Sony dealer to install any new internal hardware components.
You do not install memory modules yourself, if you are not familiar with upgrading memory on a computer.
Please contact VAIO-Link if you need assistance.
Always switch the power off before you open the system. Otherwise, damage may occur to the integrated circuits in your computer.
! Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage disk drives, add-on cards, and other components. Follow the procedures here only at an ESD workstation.
Otherwise, do not work on a carpeted area and do not handle materials that produce or hold static electricity, such as cellophane wrappers. Ground
yourself by keeping constant contact with an unpainted metal part of the unit while carrying out any of these procedures.
