Only problem with those propietary companies and the like. Sony and dell especially do things their own way. YOu would have to ask sony why, but they would probably say that that's the way they built the comp and you bought it, most likely knowing the specs, and it's your fault. Newegg.com, monarchcomputers.com, amazon.com, ebay.com, and local comp shops are places where you can search.

Memory specifications required to upgrade the Memory (RAM).

When purchasing memory to install into the computer, select SDRAM meeting the following specifications and guidelines:

* Double Data Rate-Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory (DDR-SDRAM)
* PC-2100
* 266MHz

if those are the specs, will this one work?

SDRAM is not proprietary.

Well, in your original post, you spoke of SO-DIMM RAM, which leads me to believe that you are talking about a laptop. If so, that RAM will not work in it. However, if it's for a desktop, it should work fine.

Current SO-DIMM uses the DDR architecture. Here's what you should need:
