This laptop can support up to a max of 1 GB of RAM , so if you buy 1 stick of 1 GB of RAM you need to take out the 768 MB and just put the 1 stick of 1 GB RAM, or your other option is to buy a 256 MB of RMA so your computer will still have a max of 1 GB of RAM and that would be cheaper and you can still use your old RMA on your laptop , this is the lin for the complete specs of your laptop

Hope that helps...........

    Anywhere written what possible to use only 2 x 512 sticks, not one 1 Gb. Did you try to use 1 GB stick or 2 x 1 Gb sticks?

    Best wishes!

What is the error message? The CPUs will not overclock on there own, that requires configuration. Some components when not installed properly with cause the computer to boot to a black screen and the fan to speed up dramatically. I've seen memory sticks and display port cables cause this. Check all your hardware and make sure everything is seated properly.

My e-machines will not let me upgread my ddr2 1eb memory

That Machine would take DDR2 PC2-5300 upgrade chips. The max that system could take would be two 1GB sticks for a total of 2GB or 2048MB of memory. Memory is fairly easy to damage with static discharge and is also very easy to not put in all the way. When putting it in, unplug the power from the computer, push and hold the power button for 20-30 seconds to help discharge power from the computer, Line up the pins on the memory and push them into place till the little arms at the sides of the slot pop up and click into place. I'd install one chip at a time, powering the machine up after the first chip to make sure it works, then starting over again. The only time I'd install both chips at the same time would be when installing a memory kit (two or more chips in one package), in which case, install both chips before powering it on.

I have a toshiba satellite A135-S4467 laptop, using two memory slots, totaling 1G. I've bought a Kingston ValueRAM - 2GB PC2-6400 DDR2 Laptop Memory Module. What is the best way to install my new 2G...

Hi, Yes, it would be best to take the old RAM out. I am assuming that this is 1 stick totalling 2GB. Optimally it would be good to have 2 x 1GB modules totaling 2GB, so they could work together. Otherwise, yes, just remove the the old ram and install the new module. If you are running a 32bit operating system, 3GB is all the system can use anyway. Hope this helps!

Hi nordicwookie,
The main point here is to match the 512MB already installed into the PC. You can buy from either of these web sites. (Click on the link). This site offers free shipping.

You want 512MB of memory which will give you a total of 1GB.
Though a suggestion if I may. If you are going to run or are running Vista, suggest you go higher. 1.512GB. This is listed on the site. (This is only a suggestion).

Good Luck! nordicwookie
