    I don't know if this is covered in one of the stickies at the top, but I wanted to know if I can safely install 8GB RAM cards on my laptop? I'm not sure if this would overclock my system or not but i'm trying to just upgrade it generally so that it runs smoother with my DAW (FLstudio and Ableton) and my DJ software (Traktor pro S4). I'm looking into getting an SSD also. Any help would be much appreciated.

    According to this document:https://docs.sony.com/release/specs/vpcf115fmb_mksp.pdf the maximum supported memory is in fact 8GB so you are good, depending on what you have in there now, you will need either one or two sticks of DDR3 4gb 1333Mhz. The SSD is a great upgrade, as far as which one you should get, it depends on how much you are willing to spend. If you keep all of the media on the system drive, it is going to cost you $$$$

    I guess I should have been a bit more clear, I have a 4GB and a 2GB but I want to possibly install 2 8gb cards for a total of 16gb of ram. So if further modification is required, what might that entail?

    Unfortunately Sony indicates that the MAXIMUM amount of memory that your laptop can use is 8GB, so you will need to replace your single 2GB with a matching 4Gb for a total of 8Gb.
