Answer: Upgrade Memory for a Satellite M40X-299

Hi

Well, there are two memory slots but only one is upgradeable.
As far as I know the 512MB was standard and the max memory what you can use is 1536MB (512MB + 1024MB)

Unfortunately, you can use 1536MB and more is not possible

Hello,

I am looking forward to upgrade the RAM in my Satellite M40x-183. The laptop came with 512MB RAM. From the specs, I learnt that it can be expanded to 2GB.

I am not sure which type of RAM (DDR1/2) and what frequency will be supported on m40x-183. Please help me with the type of RAM and the frequency supported by M40x-183.

Thanks in advance

Hello All,

I want to upgrade my memory from 512MB to 1.5GB. I bought 1G RAM and when I plugged in screen became white and Laptop is not working. RAM is fine. I contact the technical department of Seller and as per them I need to remove the old 512MB RAM and plugged there my 1GB RAM so my Laptop can recognise the new RAM.

To do this I open my keboard and beneath this I can only find WLAN in the middle in the left there is another LAN. and the extreme left I can see my DVD-ROM. On the right PC card and that's it. I don't know where the the 512MB RAM slot is. It's definately there somewhere.

Is there any one any expert who can tell me where can I find RAM slot for 512 MB?

PS: I even call Toshiba support and they said sorry as per policy we cannot tell you.
So experts non-experts Legends please help me fix this issue.

Please

Answer:Satellite M40x - Where is the memory located?

I have checked the user manual of Satellite M40x (it can be downloaded on the Toshiba website) and if you look on page 8-7 you can find a description how to upgrade the memory.

In my opinion the 512MB that you already have is an integrated RAM that can?t be upgraded because on the bottom side of the notebook is only one memory slot.

However, I think it?s not a problem to use an additional RAM module but maybe the new RAM is not full compatible with your notebook.
What type of memory did you bought exactly? Maybe you should try it with another one.

I hope I could help you a little bit.

Memory upgrade

I have an Equium M40X-230, most documentation indicates that it is expandable to 2 GBytes of RAM.
On the underside it has one memory expansion slot that will take a 1 Gbyte SODIMM, giving me a total of 1.5 G bytes of RAM.

Is there a way to add the other 500 Mbytes. (I am experimenting with Virtual Machines and databases)

Answer:Equium M40X-230 Memory Upgrade

In case anyone is interested!

There is a 500MByte memory module located on the top side of the motherboard. Unfortunately this is mounted internally within the case.
It is located underneath and slightly to the right of the centre of the keyboard.
However the top cover moulding of the Notebook covers the electronics and so it cannot be accessed by simply removing the keyboard. the top cover has to be lifted which also involves removing the screen.

Otherwise the module is mounted in exactly the same socket type as the one underneath the machine.

Answer:Cannot find second memory slot on my Satellite M40x-112

Well, I found a information that only one slot is USER upgradeable. This means that the user can upgrade the memory only in one slot which can be found at the bottom of the unit.

I presume the second slot is hidden somewhere under the keyboard and the keyboard must be removed firstly to reach the second memory slot.
But this would cancel the warranty if you would remove the keyboard by yourself.

In my opinion you should contact tan authorized technician for this upgrade?

I have a parity error on my base memory and get from time to time the Windows blue screen with the error massage. This memory cannot formally replaced by the user. Can this memory being replaced without replacing the motherboard? Are the repair manuals avilable to replace that memory myself? How can I get them?

Answer:Satellite M40X base memory replacement

Hi

I think it?s possible to replace the both RAM modules because as far as I know the M40X does not support an internal memory but the motherboard supports two memory slots and the RAM modules a removable.

The point is that the other memory module (not user upgradable) could be hidden somewhere under the keyboard.
In order to change the RAM module you will have to remove firstly the keyboard (fixed with two screws under the thin plastic cover)

But be careful if you would like to remove the keyboard? it?s connected to the motherboard with the flat cable?

I would like to upgrade my RAM by adding another 1GB. I cannot seem to find the right memory for the model of my laptop M40X-231(Model PSM4XE-03D01WDU).

When I search the Kingston site it tells me I need part No. KT3311A/1G .. However the picture of this model is incorrect (location slot is in centre of chip). I found that KT3311A-1G-AA seems to be the correct piece (the locating slot is between pins 40 and 42) but it is not available in Kingston brand. I have found it in other brands but they are not recommended by Toshiba.

Can anyone tell what the right RAM is for me please?

Answer:RAM Upgrade on my Satellite M40x-231

According to Toshiba specification compatible RAM modules for your model are:
PC2700 512MB (PA3312U-1M51)
PC2700 1024MB (PA3313U-1M1G)

Listed modules are tested and must work properly.

I have read that my satellite pro m40x can be upgraded _up to 2 Gb_ of Ram, but I see just one expansion slot.
The internal memory is 512 Mb.

How is it possible to get 2 Gb totally? Is there a 1,50 Gb module?

Cheers

Answer:Satellite Pro M40X upgrade 2 Gb

First of all, no there are NO 1,5 GB modules existent on this planet. And I mean the whole planet. :)

The trick is, that the second module is under the keyboard which means:

If you want 2 Gig of RAM then you must remove the keyboard and exchange the modules. Thats all, but don?t ask me how to exchange it.

I don?t know. ;)

I encountered the problem that the new disk a *WD Scorpio WD1200BEVE* (120 GB enhanced IDE) is not recognized in the BIOS.

Any solutions to my problem ??

Answer:Harddisk upgrade on Satellite Pro M40X

Hi there,

sometimes a BIOS update helps in such situations. DId you already checked if you have the latest BIOS on your machine?

The other point is: not ALL HDD?s are compatible so maybe it would be good for you to take another disk and check it with that one.
Perhaps it?s just an incompatibility between your machine and the HDD?

This would be some kind of troubleshooting and I would appreciate it to hear some feedback from you. :)

Hi,

I'm trying to insert the RAM module (256MB) from my old 1410-604 into my new M40, however when I do, the computer appears to forget what it is. It issues about 9 beeps, tries to access the DVD drive, and then nothing happens from there. Machine stays on, but no response from anything.
Is there any way for me to put this RAM into my new laptop and expect it to work?

Thank you!

Answer:Satellite M40X-205: RAM upgrade from 1410-604

Hello

As far as I know your old 1410-604 works with PC1600 SDRAM and the M40 with PC2700 DDR-RAM module. In my opinion they don?t work together without any errors, because these are two different parts. You need two similar memory modules.

Hi,

I have a Satellite M40x-112, it is almost 3 years old and the hard drive (TOSHIBA MK8025GAS ATA) is having problems, I need to change it, but I don't know a lot of this so I'm asking for help and advise on what hard drive should I buy for this laptop.

I have searched and read but I don't get it yet.... I see there are a lot of interfaces like PATA,SATA, ATA, then I have seen ATA-2,3,4,5,6,7,8 , also Ultra-ATA/100, EIDE,IDE, etc etc.... so I'm really confused........

What interface does my laptop use? What interface should the new hard drive use?

And which 2.5" hard drive is good?? There are a lot of companies also, which one makes the best hard drives for laptops?
My current hard drive is 80 GB big. I would like to upgrade to 160 or 250, what do you guys recommend??

Thank you all very much for your help,

Answer:Satellite M40x-112 - need advice about HDD upgrade

I understand you very well? the different HDD interface titles confuse the most people? me too in the past ;)

So I would try to clarify some things;
There are two important differences between the HDD interfaces; SATA (S-ATA) and IDE (ATA, PATA and also called EIDE).

ATA-5, Ultra ATA/66 means Ultra DMA 3, 4 (44.4, 66.7) means UDMA/66
ATA-6 means Ultra ATA/100 means UDMA 5 (100) means UDMA/100
ATA-7, Ultra ATA/133 means UDMA 6 (133) means UDMA/133

and so on? ;)

Your notebook supports Enhanced IDE (ATA-6) HDD interface and you should use the IDE HDD (NOT SATA)

I?m not sure about the max HDD size because Toshiba doesn?t provide any official info about the max supported HDDs but a 100GB maybe 120GB HDD could be possible.

Best regards

hi,

i want to replace the slow 40 GB travelstar 4k40(hitachi) with a travelstar 7k100. I have read some threads about BIOS compatibility but no concrete answers. have anyone tried this before on a M40X?

in case I got the new HD, what will happen to the genuine windows xp home edition on the original HD? I thought the recovery CD will do the job of reinstalling the OS on the new HD but it is mentioned that the CD is bundled with the original old HD. Does this mean I cannot have XP on new HD?

I didn't know how to get into the HD but it was pretty obvious in M40. i just want to know after sliding out the old HD from the side, do i need to unscrew only the small housing around the HD and put it on new HD?

thanks guys,

Answer:Upgrade a HDD from 40GB to 100GB on Satellite M40X-142

The recovery CD should also work with another HDD.

I have an M40x Laptop. I took the CPU out of it to replace it with another to test the computer booted up fine so I shut down and took it out and put it's original CPU back in, and it would not boot. Now it will not boot up at all with either of the CPU's all. When I turn on the power all I get is a white screen for a few seconds and the laptop shuts itself back down. Both the CPU's are good because I have since tested them in other computers to make sure that was not the problem.

Anyone have any ideas on what is causing this??

Answer:Satellite M40x will not boot up after CPU upgrade test

I?m not surprised.
As far as I know Toshiba does not support any CPU upgrades and it's not advisable to do something like that.
It?s a fact that the CPU replacement on the notebooks is not easy and mostly not recommended.
The processors used in portables are connected to the system board using a process called TCP (Tape Carrier Package). This is a permanent connection method and is used in the interests of miniaturization and heat dissipation.

Did you assign the new heat paste? It?s necessary and important if you want to connect the CPU again.

So possibly this is a reason for the no booting.
I think more details you will get from the service guys in your country?

Am assuming the memory is either onboard or possibly under the keyboard as in some other Toshiba models.

Could someone tell me firstly where it is and also if it can be replaced. If it can't be replaced is it possible to disable it and use the empty slot?

The machine is out of warranty so taking it apart is not a problem

Answer:Equium M40X-149: Where is a memory module?

Hi

Yes, you are right. The notebook supports 2 memory slots but only one is ?User upgradeable?.
This means the second one is hidden somewhere under the keyboard!
But if you will remove the keyboard or any parts, you will lose the warranty.
Therefore the slot is called ?user upgradeable? because the common user could insert the module without opening the notebook.

The notebook can be upgraded up to 2048 MB. So one slot can candle 1024MB!

Hi

What memory do you mean? Do you want to upgrade the main memory?
I think the Equium M40X was delivered with 512MB. Am I right?
This value should be enough to run every application.
Furthermore you have a possibility to increase the memory up to 2048MB (2x1024MB)

The memory slot is placed at the bottom of the unit and there you can place the memory modules.

But if you want to increase the ?Virtual memory? so please got to:
System properties ? Advanced tab ? ?Performance? settings button - ?Advanced? tab ? Virtual memory ?change? button.

There you can find the settings and there you can change it.

Hi Luis,

The specification for your notebook indicates that it can accept up to 1,024 Mb RAM. If you have 2 RAM slots then you can use any combination of RAM modules as long as you do not exceed the quoted maximum. Obviously if you only have 1 RAM slt then you must remove the original 256Mb module before inserting you new 512Mb one.

I know that this memory will run as PC4200, but I don't know where to buy PC4200.
Thanks.

Answer:Re: Satellite M70-159 memory upgrade

The Satellite M70 can be upgraded to 2GB RAM.

The Kingston RAM should be compatible with your notebook because Kingston makes high quality RAM and a lot of users here upgraded it with Kingston modules.
And as you said the RAM will run as PC4200, this is no problem.

Hi guys

so I've got a Toshiba Satellite A80 and I was hoping to upgrade the memory. I know that it can go up to a max of 2x 1gb slots what I was wondering if you guys could help me out is tell me will any memory chip work or will only some work? I've had experience of a chip not working on it , which I found very strange.

I've done some googling and found something along the lines of PC2100 DDR-RAM specification could somebody explain?

Thanks

Answer:Satellite A80 - Help for memory upgrade

hi,

I have just made a search for your lap specifications and found out that you can upgrade up to 2 gb DDram 533 mhz. So, you can use ddr ram 533 mhz, preferably Kingston memory modules

I have a Satellite L30-11D and I am wanting to upgrade the memory modules in it, I have found this;

Part Number: PA3411S-2M1G
1024MB (1GB) Memory PC2-4300 DDR2 (533MHz)

and it will work but im unsure on this - can you have more than one plugged into my laptop?

Please help!!!

Answer:Memory upgrade on Satellite L30

Of course you can do more then one memory module. On your Satellite notebook there are two slots available and you can put two memory modules. Your notebook can handle with max 2 GB of RAM.

According the notebook specification you should have now 512 MB of RAM. New 1GB module put in place where is now placed 512 MB module and old one put into empty slot.

Hi,
i have upgraded my memory from 2 x 256 mb to 2 x 512 mb, but nothing works. i bought the ram modules compatible to pa3312u-1m151.
this system doesn't boot, nothing happens. after reinstalling the old module, system starts normally.
what can i do?

Answer:Memory upgrade on Satellite M30-344

Hi

If the unit doesn?t start properly it is probably because the new modules are not compatible for this unit.
According the specification you need PC2100 512MB (PA3164U-1M51) RAM module. Please bring your back and buy PA3164U-1M51. Those are tested and they should work properly.

Good luck!

Please can I do it?

Answer:Memory upgrade to 1GB RAM on Satellite A60

Good news for you. It is possible to upgrade your notebook to a maximum of 1,2GB of RAM.
Just make sure you buy one module with this specifiactions:

You will have to buy one 1GB module, because you have only one slot available. The 256MB are onboard.

Is it possible to upgrade the memory for the Satellite A60-218 models?
I've heard that the memory is onboard (internal) and cannot be replaced. Is this true?
If not, could somebody give me a hint where can I find the memory modules on this model?
I have tried disassembling it without success.

Thanks!

My wife recently purchased a Satellite L10-114 which has 256 RAM. She is finding use a little on the slow side compared to my L20 with 512. Am I right in assuming another 256 could be added in the second memory slot to achieve 512?
Or does the existing 256 need to be replaced with a 512?

Hi

normally You don't need to bother with brands, MHz'es and stuff like that. If You point out that You want to buy either (recommended) Toshiba original memory option for that model, or a f.ex. use a Kingston 3rd party memory - You just have to say "I have this model, give me a 256, 512 or whatever memory".
It will then work perfect in Your system along with any memory You already have.

Can anyone advise me as to the correct RAM type to upgrade my Satellite Pro A10. Its a standard 256mB at the minute and I'm thinking of slotting in an additional 512mB next to it - but am bemused by the array of memory types and nomenclatures - DDR - SODIMM etc !!!

Handy with the screw drivers but not so hot with the acronyms. Many thanks to you all out there who know the score!

Answer:Memory Upgrade on Satellite Pro A10

Hi

I understand you very well and sometimes I?m also a little bit confused because of the whole notations in the computer world.

The Sat Pro A10 supports 200-Pin PC2700 (333Mhz) DDR SODIMM modules and you can upgrade the memory on this notebook up to 1024MB (2 x 512MB)

I want to upgrade to 2GB of ram by going 2x1GB sticks or a 2GB stick.

However, i don't know if the 2GB stick will be accepted on one slot.
Should i buy a 2GB stick or 2 1GB sticks?

And, can the frequency of the new sticks be higher? like 800Mhz/500Mhz?

Message was edited by: Ruixituh

Answer:Memory Upgrade on Satellite L40-15G

Hi

The memory module frequency depends on the chipsets FSB (front side bus)
If the FSB is limited to 266Mhz then your modules will run only with 266Mhz even the modules would support a faster speed.

As far as I know the notebook supports the Intel GL960 Express Chipset.
This chipset handles max 2Gb RAM so you could use only 2 x 1GB RAM modules.

I thing the chipset will handle 533Mhz

The info that you have is absolutely right. Toshiba has tested this notebook with follow memory modules:
DDR2-400/533 256MB (PA3389U-1M25)
DDR2-400/533 512MB (PA3412U-1M51)

As you can see it is DDR2 memory module and if you use part number (PA?.) at the Google you will find a lot of online offereor where you can order this tested memory. I recommend you to buy original one or maybe Kingston module. On this way you will be sure that new module will be recognized properly.

I want to upgrade my memory (one chip 256 DDR SoDiMM 333 Mhz PC2700 installed). If I add to the original 256Mb a 512Mb chip will the two work together and is a 512 DDR SoDIMM with a frequency of 400 Mhz compatible with the laptop computer and 256Mb chip?
Thanks

Answer:Satellite A30 RAM memory upgrade

Hi

>If I add to the original 256Mb a 512Mb chip will the two works together?

Yes, both modules will work together. In such case you will have 768MB of main memory.

> is a 512 DDR SoDIMM with a frequency of 400 Mhz compatible with the laptop computer and 256Mb chip

This depends on the front side bus (FSB). As far as I know the A30 supports a 533Mhz FSB. So the 512MM module should run with full 400Mhz speed.

But note; if the 256MM memory module supports only 333Mhz then the faster 512MB module will also run with 333Mhz. The 256MB module will make the second, faster module slower.

And if I change the memory will I lose what is already saved on the laptop?

Answer:Memory upgrade for Satellite L30-134

Sure you can improve performance by upgrading your notebooks memory. The maximum amount of your notebook is 2GB and if you want to buy memory modules, make sure the following specifcations are present:

DDR2 533MHz (PC2-4200) 200-PIN SODIMM

An external HDD won't improve performance but keeps your data safe, if you have to reinstall your system. For me, it is best way to store pictures, music videos and stuff like that.

But there are other things to make your machine faster. Depending on your operating system, there are several guides around the internet.

Well, regarding the user manual you can upgrade the RAM up to 2GB. That means you can put in 1GB module in each memory slot.

The new RAM should have the following specification: DDR-RAM PC2700 (DDR333)
Normally you should find such RAM modules on the Kingston website because I bought DDR-RAM PC2700 last year from Kingston for my older notebook and it works perfectly.

By the way: In the user manual of Satellite P30 you can find useful instructions how to upgrade the RAM.

I've got a Satellite M40X-112 lapptop and I want to update my intern drive from 80GB to 160 GB.
How know is it possible?! (The Toshiba hotline cannot give me an answer-only a 80GB drive was testet with these lapptop!). Have anyone experience with that?

Answer:Satellite M40X-112: Can I use the 160GB HDD

I read several statements here in the forum about HDD upgrade on the M40X and it seems there is a BIOS limitation.
The BISO will not recognize the 160GB HDD and therefore you will be not possible to install an OS or you will be not able to boot from this device.

Please use the 'advanced search' of this forum to find the threads about the HDD upgrade.

Hey Folks,

my M40X turns off sometimes. I dont know what it causes. I dont know why. I dont think its dust in the fan, because i have it just 2 months. I got the latest bios from september and the lastest chip set drivers, i think.

what can i do?

Answer:Satellite M40X turns off sometimes

Hi

You said that your notebook turns off ?sometimes?.
Does this issue occurs only if you use a especially software application or it?s a generally problem?
I ask it because sometimes 3rd party software could has a bad influence on the OS.
But it could be also a overheating issue.

dear friends,

my laptop has worked for 3 months without any problem.these days when I put a CD in DVD rom It is not recognised and a failure message appears on the screen that says no cd is in the drive.could it be a software problem or it is definetly a hardware malfunction.I'm seriously looking forward to your instructions

Answer:My Satellite M40X: DVD Rom has got serious problem

Did you installed some burning software, burning plugins or something similar? In most cases such programs are the troublemakers. Try to deinstall all your burning stuff, and maybe its a good idea that you download a benchmark-cd (like ultimate-boot-cd; Link: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html) or memtest (http://www.memtest86.com/) and try to boot from the cd. When the CD is booting correctly, then you know that is something with your software-configuration.

Just try it :)

Hi all.

I have a Toshiba Satellite M40X-161 (PSM4XE) laptop.

I have had this problem with the computer fan running all the time and making an awful lot of noise since I bought it a few years ago.
Once I had the fan cleaned in the service shop and it was ok for a few days, but then it started all over again.

Is there any solution for this problem? I've read that Toshiba has issued newer BIOS versions that fix this problem, but for laptops with ATI/nVidia video adapters.

I have an Intel adapter. Is there anything for my model, and has anyone fixed this?

Answer:Satellite M40X - fan noise

Hi

This is not a problem buddy.

The cooling modules should be cleaned from time to time. It?s not enough to clean the fans only one time? the dust will appear again? So it?s necessary to clean the cooling modules regularly.

You should also take a look into the power options of the Windows OS.
In most cases it?s possible to control the CPU performance and cooling performance which would reduce the fan activity and noise.

Hi,
I?ve got a problem with my old M40 Notebook.

Last evening it just turned out. First I thought it was overheated, like sometimes before, but until this morning it won't boot again. If I push the boot-button it starts booting (I hear the HD) but only for 3 seconds, then there is no noise and nothing on screen, but the light around the boot-button is still shining. Weird.

I tried to start without the battery, only by cable, but that won't work either. There where NO smell like something was burned or so, I don't know what happened. But I need my data.

Would be cool if someone knows help!

Answer:Satellite M40x-112 won't boot

Try to remove the battery and disconnect the AC/DC adaptor from the notebook. Wait at least one hour and connect the AC/DC adaptor and battery. Try to start the notebook again and maybe it works.

By the way, so save your data you must start the laptop. If you have an external USB case you can put your HDD in it and then you can save the data on an other computer or notebook.

Hi,

i have Equium m40x-189 notebook with Intel Pentium M 730 processor(1.6/2M/533). I want to upgrade my CPU with Intel Pentium M780 processor(2.26/2M/533). Is it possible?

Answer:Equium M40X-189: I want to upgrade the CPU?

Hi

Please don?t be mad on me but I think that forum is not the right place to pick up this kind of information. CPU exchange is very ?sensible? area and I think you should contact service or some independent hardware upgrade store.

Basically CPU upgrade is not possible because of so-called permanent connection method. I don?t want to say it is definitely not possible but CPU upgrade can but for result it can have some negative aspects like higher power consumption and much shorter running time with battery power supply, cooling will not be as before and I am afraid that cooling vent will run constantly.

What to say about performance. I believe you will not see much more difference because CPU on this unit is good enough and better, cheaper and without risk solution, is to upgrade RAM to maximum.

Hi,

I am thinking about upgrading my laptop memory.

I am wondering if i can use Kingston KTD-INSP5150/1G instead of KTT3311/1G? They both are PC2700 200 pin DDR SODIMM 333 MHZ but KTD-INSP5150/1G is mostly used for other laptops.

Someone is selling KTD-INSP5150/1G on good reasonable price but not sure if it is compatible?

Thanks

Answer:RAM upgrade for Equium M40X-189

Hi momer79,

First of all the Equium M40x can be upgraded to 2GB memory. You need DDR-RAMM SO-DIMM modules with specification PC2700. You can use up to 1GB in each slot.

Furthermore I have checked the Kingston website because there is memory configurator. If you search for Equium M40x-189 you will get two compatible memory modules:
KTT3311A/512 (512MB SO DIMM)
KTT3311A/1G (1GB SO DIMM)

So in your case I would buy one or two of these modules because they seem to be compatible with your Equium notebook. ;)

Hi, I've just purchased 1Gb of memory (2 512Mb modules) to upgrade my 1900-303. However when I opened it up, firstly I can't see any existing memory modules and secondly the memory won't fit. According to the handbook it will take 144 pin sodimm pc133 modules. This is what I bought.

Has anyone upgraded the memory on their 1900-303 and if so what memory did you use?

Thanks.

Answer:Satellite 1900-303 memory upgrade.

Hi,
I?m a little bit confused about your handbook !

I?ve helped my colleague upgrading his Satellite 1900-305.

This machine needs PC2100 DDR-RAM and the Notebook can handle 768 Mb maximum memory !
And there is just one slot upgradable at the bottom of the machine.

I don?t think that the Satellite -303 and -305 are different in using Memory. So you better try to exchange your Memory modules at first.

Hi all.

I have Satellite L505D-S5965 laptop. It has 3 GB of DDR2 333 MHz SDRAM. Specifications are here:
http://www.cnet.com/laptops/toshiba-satellite-l505d-s5965/4507-3121_7-33695859.html

Could I install 2 times x 4 GB DDR3 800 MHz in this laptop? Does my CPU/motherboard support it? Or can I install DDR2 600 Mhz SDRAM?

I saw a couple of the same laptops on ebay that had DDR3 mentioned.

I'm not sure, but the motherboard is likely V000185540. It has AMD X2 QL-65 processor.
CPU info can be found here:
http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K8/AMD-Athlon%2064%20X2%20QL-65%20-%20AMQL65DAM22GG.html
It is stated that the bus speed is
Dual-channel 333 MHz DDR2 SDRAM Memory controller
One 2000 MHz 16-bit HyperTransport link
This makes me confused - is it the maximum speed of memory I can install?

Chipset is AMD 780G with SB700 southern bridge.

OS is Windows 7 - should be no problem with it.

If anyone would be able to answer my question, I would appreciate it greatly.

Answer:Satellite L505D - Possible memory upgrade?

>Could I install 2 times x 4 GB DDR3 800 MHz in this laptop?

I don?t understand why you asking this question?
You posted the page with the specs and it says clearly: Max RAM Supported: 8GB
So you can use 2 x 4GB RAM modules

The RAM speed depends on Front Side Bus speed: specs page says: 800Mhz.
So all RAM even faster would run at 800Mhz

>Does my CPU/motherboard support it? Or can I install DDR2 600 Mhz SDRAM?
You cannot mix DDR3 and DDR2. Both are physically different.

Hi, there

The minimum recommended memory for Windwows XP is 256 Mb and I do not understand how the company could get away selling notebook with 256 MB with built-in graphic adapter sharing the system memory.

Anyway, I want to upgrade my Toshiba and my intention is to buy additional 512 Mb memory, such as http://www.orcalogic.co.uk/asp/prodtype.asp?prodtype=20049&ft=m&st=3

Will it work properly with 768 Mb or shall I buy only the same pairs : 256+ 256, 512+ 512?

Thank you very much.

Answer:Question about memory upgrade on Satellite L20-181

Hi

Firstly you are not right. The Windows XP runs also with the lower memory value.
But of course, it depends on the memory if the OS applications will run faster or slower.

However, the fact is that you can upgrade the memory on you notebook and it doesn?t mater if the modules have the same memory value or not.
In this case the notebook was delivered with 256MB and you can install easeful the second 512MB memory module.

PS: I would recommend installing the 512MB in the first slot and the 256MB in the second bank.

Hi guyz,
I want to upgrade the memory of my satellite 2450-401: as what is written in the manual it can support a maximum of 1GB of memory (512 MB each slot), but according to www.crucial.com it would accept till 2GB (1GB each slot). Actually the chipset of the notebook (intel 845) can support 2GB of memory, but I'm a little bit confused: is the information reported in the toshiba manual correct? Or can I install 2GB?
Thank in advance

Answer:Memory UPgrade for satellite 2450-401

Hi Luca

I must be honest to you and in this case I believe that information in Toshiba manual I correct. It is possible that it can work but you must be careful with this. If there is guarantee from curcal.com that it will work properly you can buy it. In other way install just maximum size mentioned in Toshiba manual. It will be work properly because it is already tested.

Hi All,
I Have a satellite A100-583 which currently has 1gb of ram and want to know what is the largest that it can be upgraded to and is it worth doing,Also does it have to be replaced with 533ddr2 or can it be replaced with 667 and is that a better upgrade ?
Can you also tell me what is SODIMM and if this make a difference ?

Answer:Satellite A100 memory upgrade

Hi,

the machine can be upgraded to a maximum of 4GB of main memory, and if it´s worthy can by no one be answered, but only by yourself.

Do you really need it? I think the best would be that you upgrade to 2GB since you´re not a graphics designer which has larger pictures (which can be some gigabytes tall :) ).

As a normal user under vista/XP you only need 2GB. You won´t even recognize the jump from 1GB to 2GB of RAM or more.

Regarding the modules FSB frequency: it doesn´t matter which frequency you use, you really won´t gain any performance when using the 667mhz modules, so just obtain a fine pair of 2x2GB sticks with 533Mhz and just enjoy the "speed".

Here´s a little explanation for S0-DIMM:

Just bought a L30-113 with 512MB and bought a Crucial 512Mb upgrade.
It fitted but it was not recognized on boot-up.
Have tried both memory modules in both sockets together and as a single, however only ever recognises 512MB memory, obviously both modules work and both sockets work, but not together.

Checked in the bios and only recognises 512Mb, also checked in config/advanced and not limited to 512MB MEMORY, As far as i am aware the bios is the latest available.

Answer:Satellite L30-113 does not recognize memory upgrade

Probably it's compatibility problem. Send back the new module and buy another one from a reliable brand. But you really shouldn't open a new topic, because there are already two topics for this problem:
