I have a VAIO CW16FG and there is no ReadyBoost service. Does the VAIO not come with a Readyboost feature?

Where can I download ReadyBoost?

I have already done that but

Will ReadyBoost in the Flash Drive work even without the ReadyBoost service?

Curiosity Q, please - why did you ask the readyboost question to begin with?
The Toshiba Flash Drive that came with the laptop has the words Readyboost in its package.

Ive also read that ReadyBoost acts like an external RAM. So I was interested to try it.

My Dell with a 32bit Vista has a ReadyBoost in service.msc while My VAIO has no ReadyBoost in its service.msc.

I asked that question because I noticed upon seeing this thread that my HP Windows 7 x64 has no ReadyBoost service, either, listed in services.msc. I never noticed that prior to today.

Does that mean Windows 7 does not support ReadyBoost?

I mean how will ReadyBoost work if the system cannot recognized it.

=============================================================

pat I tried doing the performance monitor thing. Before I plugged in the flash drive there were only red lines. Once I plugged in the flash drive, some other colored lines appeared. Does that mean ReadyBoost is working?

I haven't used Ready Boost sice the early days of Vista. With a typical x64 system now having 4GB or more of RAM - there is no need to use flashsticks as supplemental RAM.

My Win 7 Ultimate x64 system doesn't have a ReadyBoost service either, but when I insert a 1 GB SD card, Speed up my PC using Windows ReadyBoost is one of the options on the Autoplay Dialog. Looks like the Service isn't needed

Haven't tried it as the card is nearly full and is old anyways, and old SD cards aren't the best for ReadyBoost.
