Memory upgrade problems on Satellite L30-134

Question: Memory upgrade problems on Satellite L30-134

I have just bought 2 x 1GB memory PC4200 for my L30-134 and installed them they work fine in BIOS, show up and read as they should do, but when windows is booting up it will crash with both modules installed, only ever gets to the screen with the loading bar going across and then I get blue screen.

Forgot to make a note of the error code I am afraid... (Fool I know). If I remove one of the modules and install the original 512 module with just 1 of the 1GB ones it will work fine. BIOS has been updated to the latest 3.10 version and still I get the same problem...
because all seems fine from within BIOS I am thinking that its more likely to be a software (windows) problem of some kind maybe some corrupt data in the registry or a virus maybe... has anybody any ideas?

Also, the laptop is actually my step sons and he really wants to have the CPU upgraded from the Celeron 410 to one that's a little faster. When first looking into this we was told that several CPUs were compatible (although not really worth the hassle of installing) they were cel m 450 2 GHz, pent dual core t2060 and t2080, and also the core duo t2250,so he bought the t2250,and no surprises it wouldn't work, or should I say it powered up with no display and the shut off and just epeated the cycle. So did not take a genius to work out it wasn't compat...

I know the t2080 are used in the L30's and are 1.73 533 FSB with 1MB L2 cache- 65nm and do stepping. The t2250 is identical apart from the L2 cache is 2MB and the stepping varies from do to mo depends when u bought it... seeing as ow he already has the CPU he's gonna sell it on and use the cash to buy the one that will work. If anybody has any info that could help make sure that he does not end up going round in circles I would really appreciate it...

Oh and just to make you all laugh it was Toshiba tech line staff member that told him that the CPU would work and that the L30 was able to take 2 x 1GB memory and never once mentioned that there may be issues with both upgrades...
Issues as in neither soddin work....lmao

Answer: Memory upgrade problems on Satellite L30-134

If you use the search engine of this forum, you'll find some (many) topics about memory problems with L30, and you'll find the answer. L30 series is not compatible with some brands, if you use 2x1 Gb modules. Especially there were problems with Crucial memories. Just check the topics! I have L30-134 (BIOS 3.10) with 2x1 Gb Kingmax 533 Mhz, and I have no problem with it! 2 weeks ago I upgraded my Celeron M410 to Core Duo T2450 (2 Ghz), and it works like a charm! Maybe your CPU is wrong, or something is happened when you installed it. Any question?

Hi,

I have just tried to add 516MB in my memory expansion slot, but the additional memory has not been recognised. The notebook boots up fine, but only shows 465MB available.

I have tried switching the original and new memory cards, and either card in either slot ( 0 or 1) on their own works as a 516(which proved both cards and both slots are working) but together they still show as only one in use.

Has anyone any ideas on what the problem might be, and how to get it to use them together?
thanks

Answer:Satellite M50 Memory upgrade problems

The 465MB is normal, because of the shared video memory. If I understand you correctly, both modules plugged in, only show 512MB?
Maybe you should perform a BIOS update. Could help. You can find an update at the emea support&download page.

Do both modules meet the needed specifications? They should be PC2700 DDR-RAM.

I currently own a Satellite 2140CDS with the standard 32mb of ram.

I have bought a 128mb memory module (128mb 144pin SODIMM PC100 3.3v CL=2) from crucial technology to take my ram upto the maximum amount of 160mb.

When i install the ram,the computer does not recognise it and i recieve no errors whilst the system is booting,the system still shows 32mb

I have had the memory module checked and it is working ok,i have had my computers memory slot checked out to see if there was any problems with it.Both the computer and memory module seem to have no faults.

Can anybody give me any indication or help in resolving this issue.
Could it be that i need to use memory from another supplier i.e KINGSTON

Regards

Scott Bremner

Answer:Satellite 2140cds MEMORY UPGRADE PROBLEMS

Hi Scott,

I would suggest swapping the two memory modules around or just use the new 128Mb module in the primary slot.

Also make sure that the memory modules are firmly located and correctly latched into place.

The normal recommendation is to only use Toshiba genuine RAM modules, but I personally am using RAM modules which I obtained from ORCA so I don't think there should be any problem with your Crucial ones.

Sorry about the huge block of text...

This is not my computer, but a problem that I must fix nonetheless.
I am using a Toshiba A105-S2051 and have memory I want to upgrade.

When I have the original 512 and a 1024 , It works flawlessly, and I can switch these to either port with no problem.
I also have a PNY 1024 that I can replace the other 1024 with and it likewise works perfectly in both ports, but when I put both 1024's in, it doesn't work (starts up and shuts down quickly and repeatedly).

Likewise, even if I leave one of the 1024's in but remove the 512, the computer does the same thing.

Does the laptop for some reason +need+ the 512 in order to work?
That makes no logical sense in the world of PC's, but I've no idea about laptops...

Hello together !

For your information:

Did a memory upgrade today at 2 Toshiba Satellite Pro 2100 (1,9 GH, 256 MB DDR-RAM originally), both up to 1 GB, all fine and not problems.

Just wanted to end rumours about "only 512 MB all together" or even less.

If searching for it, remember to think of the specifications:

DDR-266 (PC2100)
DDR-SDRAM, SO-DIMM
200 PIN
CL 2.5

concerning RAM frequency, building form etc.

Greetings

P.S.: Don`t think a discussion is necessary, thread could therefore be closed...

Answer:Satellite Pro 2100 - RAM Upgrade - Memory Upgrade

I have a Satellite L30-134 which appears to be running quite slowly - I think due to large amount of photos and itunes music.

I am wondering which is the easiest way to resolve - buy a memory upgrade (no idea how to change the memory though) or get an external hard drive?
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.

Hi,

I have a Satellite Pro L10 Celeron M Processor 360 1.4GHz/ XP HE/ 256MB/ 40GB/ 15TFT/ DVD-CDRW/ OneNote. I wanted to upgrade the RAM memory, and I noticed that in the User's Manual it says:

Before you install a new 512 MB memory module be sure to remove any memory modules already installed.

Does this mean that I cannot install a 512 MB module in addition to the 256 MB it already has for a total of 768 MB?

Thanks for any advice,

Luis

Answer:Satellite Pro L10 Memory Upgrade

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 need a few recommendations :-

1) Best 80GB drive to buy.
2) I want to upgrade my memory, who's can I use? (2048MB is the target)
3) Can the modular 2nd drive adaptors still be bought
4) Do the adaptors only let you add an 2.5 inch drive?

Also, anyone got any views on how the P20 (mine has a 3.2 GHZ processor) will handle Vista? I think the graphics card may be a little wussy.

Also, how does the P20 compare with current machines?

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)

thx in advance

Answer:Memory upgrade for [b]Satellite A40-261[/b]

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.

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

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

Hi Johann

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 tried to install a 512MB S3+ PC2700 DDR SODIMM module, but system won't boot up: it emits a long whistle, then shuts down automatically. If I remove the module, system boots properly.

The manual reports the supported memory speed is only PC2100. Is this true? Maybe the module is faulty?

Thanks

Answer:Satellite A60-217 memory upgrade

Hi Stefano

Obviously the added module is not compatible and makes troubles. I have found info that compatible module is PC2700 512MB (PA3312U-1M51).

Google a little bit and you will find a lot of information about module with PA3312U-1M51 part number.

Hi, I have a Satellite Pro A60 PSA65E which currently has 192mb RAM and Celeron 2.8GHz CPU.

My problem came when I tried to install Adobe Creative Suite 2 onto it but it wouldnt allow me to do this as it needed 384 mb RAM to run it. I was wondering if somebody could tell me which RAM upgrade is compatible with my machine and whether it slots into another port or if I have to take the old one out and replace it?

Thank you

Answer:What Memory Upgrade should I buy for my Satellite Pro A60?

Hi,

your notebook has 256MB internal memory, I'm not sure why it shows only 192MB. This internal memory can only be replaced by a service technician. But you also have a currently unused memory slot, in which you can place a maximum of 1024MB RAM.

Here are the modules from Toshiba you can use:
PC2700 256MB (PA3311U-1M25)
PC2700 512MB (PA3312U-1M51)
PC2700 1024MB (PA3313U-1M1G)

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?

Answer:Satellite Pro R50-B-12U and memory upgrade

Hi

The Satellite R50 does not contain separate memory bay.
The memory modules and slots are hidden under the bottom cover.

In order to get access to the modules, the bottom cover has to be removed.
But I would not recommend doing this because this would cancel the warranty!!!

I guess your warranty is still valid and in such case only authorized technician should perform such upgrade to keep the warranty valid.

I have upgraded an A60 Pro with a 1GB memory up but the Control Panel /System/ General tab still shows it as having 192MB RAM. This limits me downloading some Security Software from BT Yahoo.

Can anyone advise on how I can make the machine recognise the new RAM or is the 192 MB RAM noted different memory from the new memory upgrade?

Answer:Memory Upgrade on Satellite Pro A60

If you use non-compatible RAM module it is logic that system can not recognize it correctly. I do not know who is the manufacturer of this 1 GB RAM module but if you want to use compatible one pick up some info about PC2700 1024MB (PA3313U-1M1G) or check Kingston web page.

The notebook doesn?t boot after the memory upgrade due to these different issues;

- memory modules are not compatible together
- memory modules are not compatible with the notebook
- memory modules are faulty
- one of memory slots is faulty

In most case the memory module replacement helps.

One hint; did you try to switch the memory modules in the slots? Sometimes this helps.
Several weeks ago I have updated my memory and the notebook didn?t boot.
I thought it?s a memory malfunction but after module switching the notebook booted correctly.

Hello there,

Question is, I can find one bank under a lid on the bottom of the laptop but no other, where abouts is it situated and how do I access it?
I have done a similar upgrade on an older model and have no problems with working on the machine but in that case they were both underneath and easily accessed.

Hope you can help.

Answer:Memory upgrade on Satellite M60

Hi Russell

If both memory slots are not placed under the memory cover (bottom side) one of them is usually placed under the keyboard. To access it you must remove the plastic cover placed over the keyboard and after doing this the keyboard itself.

I need to complete a memory upgrade to 1Gb. I have placed 512Mb in the memory expansion socket but now need to replace the internal 256Mb. The user manual says if is possible in that all memory is plugged in to 2 144pin SODIMM sockets and total memory capacity is 1Gb. The expansion memory socket is one, and the internal memory socket is the other. The question is where is the internal one and how do I get access to it? How is the case removed to gain access? Specifically which screws should and should not be undone. All help gratefully received.

Answer:Satellite 1900-303 Memory upgrade

I think you have misunderstood something in the user manual.
Fact is that the notebook supports max 786MB.
256MB internal memory + 512MB in the second slot.

You can use only one slot for the upgrade. The memory from the internal slot cannot be removed and you cannot place another module.

According notebook specification you can upgrade RAM up to 8GB.

Compatible 4 GB RAM module has part number PA3670U-1M4G.

Win7 drivers download page you can find under http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/windows7_drivers.jsp

After removing the plate on the bottom you just have to push apart the brackets, which hold the module at its side. Then the memory will jump up and you can pull it out.

Hi all

I am trying to update the memory from 512MB to 2GB.

I used Crucial's memory tester and ordered memory: 2X 1GB DDR2 667 CL5
I can use either chip in either memory slot but not both chips at the same time

I have updated the BIOS

Any ideas?

Cheers, rofleuk

Answer:Memory upgrade problem on Satellite L30-11D

Maybe you should use compatible DDR2 533 MHz modules. Compatible RAMs for this models are 1 GB with part number PA3411U-1M1G.

Sorry for the beginner question. But if I have 512MB memory at the moment, what are my upgrade options?

Do I have to buy pairs of memory? So I can either buy 2x 1GB=2GB, or 2x 512MB = 1GB + 512 existing. Or can I say just buy a single 512MB or 1GB chip?

Answer:Question about memory upgrade for my Satellite M40-307

Since nobody wants to answer:
1. Check if your notebook supports Dual Channel Ram (it should, but just ckeck in the manual to be sure)
2. Find out what kind of RAM you have. This will add or remove a possibility to upgrade

The thing with Dual Channel is, that you have the best performance, if you using 2 RAM of the same type (really same type: company, size..)
you could:
3a. Add a 512MB RAM of the same type which you have
3b. Buy 2 pieces of new RAM of the same type (1GB + 1GB, or 2GB + 2GB) and be sure that your Notebook supports this ammount (again: manual to check)

You can find also in the manual, if your notebook is supporting DDR or even DDR2 RAM (faster)

If you lost your manual, you can download it here on the toshiba webpage

I hope I could help a bit.

Hello there,

I have to expand the memory of a Satellite Pro C70-B-11T by adding 1 module 8GB.
The datasheet says that the laptop can go up to 16GB.

I can not find the door to open for accessing to the memory slots.
Should I remove the entire rear panel?
Do you have a procedure?

Thank you for your help.

Answer:Satellite Pro C70-B-11T - need help in order to upgrade memory

RAM upgrade on this Satellite Pro is a bit complicated and I think it should not be done by notebook owner.
Problem is that you will have full access to memory slots if upper notebook cover is completely removed and it should be done by Toshiba service only. In case that you do it on your own you can lose valid warranty.

Try to contact nearest Toshiba service and ask for help. They can do this for you and I think it cannot be so expensive.

Hello,

I want to upgrade the RAM of my 1800-712.
Actually, i have an SDRAM PC133 256 MB.
It's strange as the bus on this type of machine seems to be at 100 Mhz !

I want to install a Kingston Memory in the second slot.
So, is it mandatory to install the KTT SO100/256 memory (compatible as the Kingston configurator shows), or can i put the KTT SO133/256 ?
As the second is cheaper, i would want to install it ?
Can you confirm the compatibility ?

Thank you.

Answer:Memory Upgrade on a Satellite 1800-712

Hi

It is recommended to use the module with the same bus speed. Probably it will work but in my opinion you should not look at the money just on compatibility and be sure that upgrade parts will not be damaged.

Hi,
I realized I have bought a model that is only sold in Saudi Arabia. That is the Satellite M50-165 Model. I want to upgrade the memory, I have bought memory from EBAY that said it works in M50 sieries, but it did not fit.

I read all manuels in Toshiba, tried to contact using the phone, they said they do not have this model.

Anyways, I would appreciate any help in that matter, as I am looking to upgrade the system to its fullest capacity, I assume 2 Giga.

This the model description:

Model Name: Satellite M50-165
Model No. PSM50E-0NX02JFC
PM 740/512/60G54/14WBT/DS2/LM/W
Serial No. 26271662K

This is the memory I bought from EBAY merchant:

Please advice me!

Answer:Satellite M50-165 memory upgrade problem

Hi there,

you bought the wrong RAM. You need DDR333/PC2700 memory for your machine (which is upgradeable to 2GB). If you have the chance, then return/sell the memory and buy a RAM with the previously described specifications.

If you have still some question then just ask.

I purchase a 1GB, 200-pin SODIMM from crucial (marked on module as 1GB 2Rx16 PC2-4200s-444-12-A0) and added it to the existing 256MB module (marked as 256MB 1Rx16 PC2 4200s-444-12-C3)

I can not get the 1GB memory module that I bought working with the existing 256MB module. The PC will recognise the 256MB module in either slot and it will also recognise the 1GB memory module in either slot. However, when both modules are installed the PC only recognises the 1GB module, no matter what order they are installed in. The crucial online memory tool seems to think that one slot is empty when it scans the laptop even though both slots are populated. The BIOS also reports that only 1GB is present when both modules are fitted.

Any idea of how I can get both modules recognised?

Answer:Memory upgrade problem to Satellite Pro L20

Hello John

I presume there is some compatibility problem. If possible try to obtain 1 GB RAM module from Kingston or module recommended by Toshiba.

If you have time take a look here

By the way: 1 GB RAM is enough for your L20 notebook. In my opinion with 1 GB RAM you can work well on this notebook model.

Hi, new to this forum.
I tried to find a direct contact to ask this, but could not locate any email options on the website, only phone numbers, which aren't an option right now as I have other obligations during business hours at the moment.

I'm a computer technician of 30 years and have today purchased a new Satellite Pro R50-C PS566A-004001 with an i7-5500U, 8GB of RAM and 1TB HDD Notebook for a customer of mine. He has requested an additional 8GB of RAM, which I purchased at the same time from my wholesaler. On opening the box I discovered there is no access to the memory slots or the Hard Drive. The Toshiba Website states in the specs that the RAM is expandable to 16GB, but it appears the back cover has to be fully removed to gain access. I would like to check if I remove the back cover will this void the warranty. The specifications on the Toshiba website do not state that it is not user accessible to change the RAM, where as from the research I did for the customer, other cheaper models do state this. I have sold Toshiba and other brands Notebooks in the past and have always ensured that the specifications for the laptop did not say the RAM was non user accessible, and as such that I would be able to upgrade the RAM as customers request.

As above, I just wish to check that upgrading the RAM on this laptop will not void the Toshiba warranty, since the specifications do state that the laptop is expandable to 16GB of RAM, and do not state that it is not user accessible/u... Read more

I have a Toshiba Satellite U840 10M with 4GB of RAM and I want to upgrade to 8GB. Can anyone tell me where I can find information on how to install an extra memory module?

Thank you,
Gon?alo

Answer:Satellite U840 10m - Memory Upgrade

Hi

You can use DDR III SDRAM 4GB 204-pin SO-DIMM memory modules
You can use DDR3 1333MHz or 1066Mhz modules?
But the memory speed depends on FSB (front side bus)
If FSB would support only 1066Mhz, the 1333Mhz modules would be clocked down.

The upgrade is little bit tricky because the whole plastic cover at the bottom of the unit needs to be removed. Its secured by 13 screws. So you need to remove all the 13 screws to be able to remove the cover and to get access to the memory.
As far as I know you could loose the warranty removing the cover? so would ask a service guy to do this job for you.

I have notebook Toshiba Satellite L40-17R with 2GB RAM and I want to upgade my Video memory from 256MB to Max(384MB). How I can do this?

Answer:How to upgrade video memory on Satellite L40-17R?

Unfortunately you cannot upgrade you RAM physically since your video RAM is just shared memory.

You could try to raise the RAM amount in the BIOS because the video RAM should be some kind of shared memory. If you cannot find some options in the BIOS which allow you to raise the amount of video RAM then you won?t be able to upgrade it...

To learn more about shared memory, please check the following site:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shared_Memory_Architecture

I must also tell you that if you even would be able to raise the amount of shared graphics memory, it won?t affect the performance not really since the system RAM is slower then some kind of dedicated RAM.

The Satellite L350 ? 107 has been supplied with the Mobile Intel GL960 Express Chipset and this chipset handles max 2GB RAM
This means that you can upgrade the RAM to max 2GB RAM using the PC2-5300 Memory Modules.

The laptop will no longer post, and although the power light is on it will not boot. The screen remains black.

Answer:Satellite S1800-204: Memory upgrade

Hi,

that your system can use up to 512, does not include that it is compatible with all brands. Check your compatibility in your manuel. Kingston has memory available for almost every system, they have a search engine at their site, check it out.

Try to put your original memory back, and check if the system posts. If it does, then you new memory is not compatible with your system or it is damaged.
