i just recently attempted to install 128mb of memory, but it didn't work out properly. I got a message saying that my computer is not boot because of the fatal changes that may be due to the installation of memory. now, my memory is compatable with the model -- i checked it out, and pc100/133 is approved for this type of sony model. i also attempted to take out the old memory and leave the new memory in, but that didn't work at all. my computer just started beeping. so, what do you think the problem would be? do i need to update the bios? and if so, how should i do it? i need help?
