Question: Re: Satellite Pro S200 memory upgrade

Hi.

I am wanting to upgrade the memory and put a 1g bd in.However how do you find where it is, how to replace it.Or do I simply take it to a shop and have them do it??
I know by the specs its a ddr2 and the lap tops ok to upgrade up to 2g.

Preferred Solution: Re: Satellite Pro S200 memory upgrade

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Re: Satellite Pro S200 memory upgrade

Sure it is only 2GB maximum amount? I've read that it is 4GB for the Pro S200-15T, think it should work for yours as well. Maybe you could post exact type.

The specifications are 2x2GB DDR2 SO-DIMM 677Mhz.

To get to the memory slots simply turn your notebook, and in the middle, near the battery pack there is a plastic cover with a little symbol, a memory module to be more precise. Just remove screw and cover and there you have the two slots for your memory.

I bought a Satellite Pro S200 in Australia. Now that I am back in the UK for good (or bad!) would it be possible to change the "$" key (4/Shift) to display the sign for Pounds (GBP)?

Answer:Changing key functions on Satellite Pro S200

Separate keys are not available, so you would need to replace the whole keyboard with a UK one. An ASP can order one for you.

I am trying to load a Satellite S200 laptop with WinXP Pro.

It does not have a floppy drive and I have no idea how to access the BIOS or which driver to load in my WinXP customised disk so that I can load windows.
Please help as it keeps coming up with no hard drives were found

Answer:Satellite Pro S200 - need SATA driver for WXP installation

You need the Intel Storage Manager. This package contains the SATA drivers to use the AHCI mode that has a better performance as the compatible mode.

The drivers you can integrate with nLite ([www.nliteos.com]). It?s pretty easy to use and I have good experience with this tool.

If you have more question you can also read the threads here in the forum because this procedure is on every notebook the same.

Hi

I have a Satellite Pro S200,

I am unhappy with my digital volume.
Dial displaying every time I bump the volume control.
Is there a way to turn this annoying function off?

cheers simon

Answer:Satellite Pro S200 - How to disable the digital volume dial on screen

Hi

The volume indicator belongs to the Toshiba Controls Utility.
The exe file is called Volumeindicator.exe

On my notebook this tool is running in the OS background and I can disable it in msconfig ->Startup tab

Check this.
Run msconfig, choose Startup tab and uncheck the Volumeindicator.
Then you will have to boot again.

I upgrade my laptop's ram to 8GB (2*4Gb). A 64-bit version of Windows 7 shows that I have 8GB of memory but there is only 3 GB of usable system memory. How i can use the 8GB. My version of the Bios is 2.00. In the Bios, i have not found the option "Enable the memory remapping feature".

Answer:Satellite A500-1GR - RAM Memory upgrade but 3GB usable system memory

Such option doesn?t exist in BIOS and the whole thing is controlled automatically. BIOS update will not change anything.
As far as I know on Toshiba notebooks you cannot ?force? notebook to use defined amount of RAM.

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

Answer:Memory upgrade on Satellite A50-104

Hi

You have several ways to find out what memory module is compatible and supported.
You can use a diagnostic too like ?Everest?, you will check the user manual or the Toshiba website for details or you will contact the service in your country for supported modules.

I will try to answer the question: The Satellite A50 should support PC2700 DDR-RAM like these parts:
PC2700 256MB (PA3311U-1M25)
PC2700 512MB (PA3312U-1M51)
PC2700 1024MB (PA3313U-1M1G)

Now it?s your choice. You can also google for the offers
By the way: Visit the Toshiba Options & accessories site. There you will find compatible parts

Compatible RAMs are:
4GB DDR3L-1600 - PA5104U-1M4G
8GB DDR3L-1600 - PA5104U-1M8G


I recommend you to buy high quality modules from Kingston and you will be 100% sure about compatibility.

But when I change for old one laptop is ok. What can I do? Install special program or update BIOS or maybe the memory stick is broken.

Answer:Memory upgrade on Satellite Pro L40-15d

Hi

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.

Good luck

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.

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.

I have a question about my Toshiba Satellite A30 memory.
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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Hi,

I have a Satellite Pro R50-B-12u with 4Gb of RAM.
I have purchased an additional 4Gb RAM stick but cannot see how you fit it.

My last Satellite Pro had a memory flap on the back but all I can see on the back is about 20 screws but no flap!

Can somebody please help me or point me in the right direction?

Thanks in anticipation.

Wozza

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.

Hi

The Satellite P10-304 supports the *200-Pin PC2700 (333Mhz) DDR SODIMM* modules.

It looks like it would be possible to upgrade it to max 2GB RAM and therefore you could use 2 x 1GB modules.

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.

Answer:Satellite P30-143 - Need memory to upgrade the RAM

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.

Hi Tomasz,

The SP U200 comes with two memory slots and is upgradeable to a total of 4Gb. RAM modules are available in 256Mb, 512Mb, 1GB and 2Gb sizes. The RAM modules are normally accessible from underneath the notebook but for specific details I suggest you check your user manual which will have full instructions for how to locate, remove and replace them.

Please be particularly careful to avoid any static electricity when you access the RAM modules since they are very sensitive and easily damaged.

Maximum RAM capacity for this notebook is 4096MB.

Generally speaking you can use 64bit OS but check at first if this model is supported for 64bit operating systems. Without support there is no sense to install 64bit OS version due to missing drivers, tools and utilities.

Hi,

I decided to upgrade my laptop to 8Gb RAM from the standard 4Gb, so I purchased two "Corsair 4GB (1x4GB) DDR3 PC3-8500 C7 1066MHz 204-Pin SODIMM Module".

I inserted both of them into the slots and powered up but all I got was a black screen.
So next I took one of the modules out and tested again and still didn't boot up, so I moved the 4Gb module to the other memory slot and this time the laptop booted up.

I repeated with the other 4Gb module and the same, so I also repeated with the 2Gb modules that originally come with the laptop and these both worked in either slot.

So basically one of the slots on the laptop does not work with a 4Gb module but the other does.
I am now running with the 2Gb in the top slot and the 4Gb in the bottom slot to give me 6Gb but ideally I would like both 4Gb to work.

I have downloaded the BIOS update (12 May 2010) but it says my BIOS is currently at that version or higher.

Please, someone help me. Toshiba, what is the problem?

Thanks
Shawn

Answer:Satellite Pro L550-19T - memory upgrade to 8Gb

Problem is modules compatibility. The "Value" RAM Modules use a lot of cheap chips utilizing multiple banks/channels, which can cause compatibility problems with some Chipsets/CPU's.

I recommend you to buy high quality modules from Kingston.

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.

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:

Hi

The manufacturers of the memory modules are not very important. But of course the "no name" memory modules have not so good performance as a other modules for example from Toshiba or Kingston.
Very important are the module properties. This unit uses PC2100 DDR-RAM modules.
I have found compatible modules:

PC2100 128MB (PA3126U-1M12)
PC2100 256MB (PA3127U-1M25)
PC2100 512MB (PA3164U-1M51)

If you use same modules and only the speed is different so the notebook will use support low speed.
In your case one module supports 266 MHz and other 333 MHz. The notebook will support 266MhZ.

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.

http://www.orcalogic.co.uk/asp/prodtype.asp?prodtype=7444&ft=m&st=3

This is the max value which can be used in the notebook.
The BIOS will not help because this is a motherboard hardware limitation!!!

Dear Sir or Madam!

I own a bit old laptop, and I would like to increase the processor's and the memory's clock speed, but I have no idea how to manage it.BIOS 6.30 version Toshiba Satellite 300CDSI haven't found the clock speed settings in the BIOS.

I tried out some programs to increase the clock speed, but it failed. Thats the reason, why I write this letter to you.

Please help me to figure out, how is it possible to increase the clock speed.

Yours faithfully,

Answer:Satellite 300CDS - CPU and memory upgrade

I’ve googled bit around but I was not able to find any useful information about RAM upgrade.
It is originally offered with 16MB RAM and can be upgraded up to 144MB but I don't know which modules can be used.

It is very interesting what you can do but I really don't know what you can do with this old piece of hardware designed for old Win95.

I mean it is nice if it still works but I cannot imagine that you can do anything useful with it. Am I wrong about that?

Is it possible to upgrade the RAM in the Satellite W30t? I have heard rumours that there is an empty slot for a 4GB SODIMM. Does anyone know if that is true and if so, where it is? If this slowcoach cannot be upgraded I am returning it for a refund.

I am trying to upgrade the memory of my toshiba satellite m55-s135 and recently baught a kingston 1 gb ddr2 pc2-5300 chip, however, when I went to install it the chip wouldn't fit into the slot. It seems that the little peg sticking out of the socket and the corresponding recess in the ship don't align.

Does anyone know of a brand of memory which is known to work with Toshibas? Or perhaps what I'm doing wrong?

I could physically force the chip in but I would have to bend one of the memory clips to do it and I would rather just buy a new chip.

Thanks for your help.

Hello nic, welcome to Major Geeks

www.crucial.com

They will scan your laptop and advise or you can input model details.
I usually recommend Crucial as I have never seen a problem with their products.

Kingston can be good, bad or indifferent. They have a similar product calculator.

Hi,

I bought some extra memory for my laptop, but after installing it the PC will no longer boot up, when I turn it on it makes a brief noise then nothing. After taking the memory expansion out again, the laptop still does not boot up.

Answer:Satellite A60-672 won't start after memory upgrade

Hello,

Does not sound good. Could be that your motherboard is burnt out now, and dead. I would not accredit it to the ram, but I have seen it happen before. Best bet with this issue is to take the motherboard to your nearest ASP and have them check it for you.

I hope this helps.

I have had couple of times problems trying to upgrade memory for my Satellite Pro 4600, so I decided to ask directly whether Kingston KTC-SO133/256mb is compatible with this machine?

That is the SODIMM I about to try next but I have to pay for it first.

Problems have been that the sodimms are not compatible with the excisting piece of memory or it wont work at all with Toshiba.

Is there a list availave what kind of memory modules are compatible?

Hello,

I need some help?. I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4270XDVD Notebook. I want to increase my memory as I have only the 64 megs that come with it. When I open the back of the computer to check the memory slots there are 2 empty ones. There is a Slot A and B. The problem is Slot A is broken. The 2 clips that hold the memory in are missing. Someone broke them off. Memory Slot B looks okay and I can put a stick of memory in it. The problem is my manual says not to use slot B if slot A is empty. Do you know why this is? Also is there any way of fixing the clips in Slot A without replacing the whole motherboard.

Thanks for your help,



Brad

I have a L305 running Vista 32bit SP1.

It came with 2GB of DDR2 6400 memory (two 1GB sticks). I have upgraded to 4GB using two 2B sticks) Is there something else I have to do to get win to utilize the extra memory.

I have seen plenty debates about 32bit will only handle between 3-3.5 GB total. I'm no worried about that. My system is still only using the factory 2GB. I have gone into the BIOS. however I see nothing importantthat I can change. I'm confussed. Where is the clock speeds memory allocations etc.

Is there a trick to this or have I just flushed $$$ down the toilet.

I own a Satellite Pro 4320. It has the factory installed memory (64 Mb), and I want to expand it. I read in the manual that it is possible to install up to 576 Mb. But in other web pages and documents, I read that 320 Mb is the maximum memory.

Does anybody know what is the right number?

Does anybody know where to find 256 Mb modules(if they can be installed)? I have found only 128 Mb modules.

Thanks in advance

Answer:Memory Upgrade for a Satellite Pro 4320

Hi

I have found information that 320 MB are max. for this unit. I have also no lucky to find 256 MB RAM module for this unit. There are two possibilities. Either you can contact service partner in your country and order one module or you must find some notebook hardware parts offerer in your country.

Hello everyone, first time poster needing some help please....

My Satellite P15 has 512mb (2x256bm) ram installed and I'm looking to put 1gb ram into each of the two slots to bring it up to the maximum supported 2gb. At first I wasn't sure which sort of memory but I ran a search on crucial.com's system scanner and discovered I need DDR PC2700 SODIMM modules of the 200 pin variety I believe. I opened up the flap next to the heat sink / fan and found the existing memory sticks but i'm amazed how difficult they are to get out. I can't seem to get them to budge and obviously I'm wary of applying to much force - does anyone know of an easy way to remove the memory sticks via the bottom of the laptop or will I have to go through the whole taking apart the keyboard etc which there are no guides on the net that i can find?

Also, as 2 x 1gb sticks is quite an expense I want to make sure I get it right. I was looking at this item on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NEW-2GB-2-X-1GB-PC2700-333-SODIMM-LAPTOP-RAM-2700-1G_W0QQitemZ230079253310QQihZ013QQcategoryZ172QQss PageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

and it seems like the sort of thing i'm after although I'm not too sure about the chipset config sizes quoted as I'm not particularly sure what this P15 laptop requires. Is that ebay item the sort of thing which will work in the P15?

Sorry this has got quite long winded but I really want to get it right and I don't have much expertise in the area.

Thanks for any help and a... Read more

Answer:Memory upgrade for Satellite P15: How to install it?

Hi,

I think the memory from ebay will work in your machine.

Removing the memory module normally is very easy.
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 having upgrading the ram on my laptop from 4gb to 8gb. First I will post the full details of my laptop then explain the problem.

(Original Configuration)
Satellite A300D-15B
Model : PSAKCE
Bios Ver: 3.30
AMD Turion X2 Ultra Dual-Core Mobile Processor ZM-86 (Upgraded from ZM-80)
Genuine Windows? Vista? Home Premium 32bit
4096 MB (2048 +2048) PC2-6400 DDR RAM (800MHZ)

Right then, I installed Windows 7 32bit on it ages ago and upgraded the CPU and have never had any issues as i work with computers.

I did some checking and found out my Motherboard supports uo to 8gb of ram and decided to buy two 4gb ram modules. I made sure I got the correct ram for my laptop.

I upgraded the ram and it recognised it without any issue and even stated that 8gb of ram was installed under 'System'in contol panel and in the bios. As it was a 32bit OS it only utilised 3gb of the ram. I then decided to upgrade my OS to Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and thats when the fun began.

Basically my laptop will not boot if I have more than 4gb of ram installed (In any configuration) and get a BSOD. I have had a few different Stop Error codes but I cant seem to find a solution. Also there arent any/many options to change in the bios so Im stumped.

I have tested the ram modules with Memtest several times without error and have also tried them in different laptops without issue. I know my laptop suppors the 8gb as I had no issues running the 32bit OS.

Hello

You are right. Your mobo can be upgraded with RAM and max RAM for your notebook model is 8 GB.
This info you can find in notebook specification .

Problem is that for upgrade you should use 100% compatible modules. I?m pretty sure there must be some compatibility problem.
Can you please tell us which modules do you use (brand and specification).
For instance: compatible 4GB module for this notebook model has part number PA3670U-1M4G.

Good afternoon.
is Toshiba T230-113
2GB of memory installed
marking:
Hynix 2Gb 2Rx8 PC3-8500S-7-10-F2
HMT125S6TFR8C-G7 NO AA-c

I want to upgrade to 4 GB, it is better to choose?
2x2Gb or 1x4Gb?

Will the two-channel mode?

Thank you

Answer:Memory upgrade on Satellite T230-113

I have checked specification for your mobile unit and it should have 4 GB inside.
Anyway it can be upgraded up to 8 GB so maybe you should buy one module with 4 GB and put one old module as second RAM. One day you can put second 4GB RAM and use maximum possible RAM with your Satellite T230-113.

I have a P100-160 with 2gb memory installed.
I am using Win7 (32bit) and do some really serious graphics, management and alterations.
I use approx 2.75Tb of attached (USB) hard drives.

Can anyone please let me know if I could reasonably expect to see any performance/reliability improvement by increasing the installed memory.

Any other suggestions (other than buying a new laptop) for performance improvement would be welcomed.

Thank you,

Ian

Answer:Satellite P100-160 and memory upgrade

If you are happy with this old piece of hardware you don?t need new notebook. RAM upgrade is OK and you can do this alone. According notebook specification your P100 can be upgraded up to 4GB RAM.

Compatible memory modules for your Satellite are:
1GB (PA3411U-2M1G)
2GB (PA3513U-1M2G)


If you have more questions you are welcome.

Hi,

I've been given a Satellite P200-12U with 2GB from a friend's friend, and asked to upgrade it to 4GB.
Have bought and installed the memory, but noticed BIOS and WINDOWs still only registered 2GB.
Then went into BIOS

JASAA BIOS V1.40

and noticed that options are generally very restricted, and that the memory is shown but not selectable.

Am I right in thinking, that this machine is restricted to 2GB? And can send the 4GB back to the shop?

Thanks for any information.

I have found some information:
Firstly you can use a 128MB module and you can upgrade the memory to max. 160MB (32MB internal memory 128MB)

As far as I know the memory module slot is placed under the keyboard.
You have to remove the keyboard to upgrade the memory.
But if you remove the keyboard you should be careful.
