Do you always get that black screen with those options, especially " start normally". If so that's not normal at all. Have you checked for virus's and malware? Is the laptop abnormally warmer than usual? Have you cleaned out all the intake and exhaust ports with canned air?

Check these two options in the Bios.

Full Screen Logo - (disable) This will turn off the Vaio image and allow you to see each part of the bios boot and maybe you can tell wheres the delay.

Quick Power On Self Test - (enable) Cuts down on some of the extended tests.

What do you mean wrong slot ? Laptop memory is under the keyboard or on the bottom or both and all memory slots are keyed. ( has a notch )

Are talking about SD cards....like for camera's and cell phones or the actual RAM (also known as memroy) which is for the laptop.
