Is there a firmware upgrade for the Toshiba Tecra 8000, both the "PAT80AA-G963" with Intel Celeron processor, and "PAT800A N000" with Intel Pentium2 processor (I have two of them) that will enable it/them to see more than 2 times 128Mb RAM modules (as in: 2 times 256Mb or 2 tmes 512Mb) and where do I get it?

check with your motherboard book and see what processors it will except because it all depends on the chipset- usually the cost involved dosen't show much of a performance gain-- have you upgraded the RAM? that a big gain you will notice!
Hi, Providing the laptop has not been upgraded then these are its specs >>> The processor is an Intel Celeron M 360 1.4GHz The hard drive is 40GB (upgradable to 360GB) The RAM (memory) is 256 DDR (upgradable to 1GB or 2GB with a BIOS flash) Let the buyer flash the BIOS. The screen is 15 inch
Yes, it should run WinXP. The minimum system requirements to run both Windows XP Home and Professional are 233Mhz, 64Mb RAM and 1.5GB hard drive space. I have a Toshiba Tecra 8000 that still runs XP, a little slow, but has run smoothly for 5 years.
The setupdd.sys error is most likely a due to a defective hardware like RAM. Try installing only one ram if you have two to see if either one is defective; it should work for most users.
Look dear the cost of the processor is too high and more over it is related with the other components of the Laptop. So it is totaly worhtless for trying to replace the Processor of the system. however you can increase the performance of the system by adding additional or replace the present RAM in the Laptop.
The core2 duo chips will be a different socket to your celeron cpu so can do that unfortunately. You may be able to upgrade to a faster cpu of the same socket type but will probably need a bios update for it to run at proper speed.
Unfortunately laptops arent really designed to be upgraded at all bar extra ram/hd/dvdrw.
