Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

1 Answer

A-105 S1712 Powerless

I decided to upgrade the memory from the single 528mb stick to two 1GB sticks. The laptop was off and unplugged from the wall. I opened the back popped out the old one and popped in the new ones, shut the door and hit the power button to no effect. No battery light, no charging light when I plugged it back into the wall. I even took out the battery and plugged it in and nothing. So a friend suggested putting the old stick back in, so I did and still nothing. The only suggestion I haven't tried was resetting the CMOS battery but I'm not sure that would help. Of course the laptop worked fine before this, a little slow hence the upgrade but other than that no one I know seems to know why this happened or what happened. Anyone got an idea? Thanks!!

Yeah,reseating the cmos battery will reset you bios settings to factory default,so whatever memory that is attached to your computer should be detected..

If the laptop will take 2GB, purchase two identical 1GB chips. They will work faster than one 2GB chip. A useful site is http://www.mrmemory.co.uk/

With many mobos (motherboards) you must place a single stick in a certain slot in order for the mobo to post. In my Asrock it is the #2 slot for a single stick. If I put it in the other slot the computer will not post. Try moving your stick to the other slot and reboot.

I have 512 mg of memory. Would there be a big difference if I add a 1 gb stick and keep the 512 mb , as oppose to removing the 512 mb and replace with two 1 gb sticks?


The performance of your laptop will improve if similar memory is placed in each of memory slot.If 1gb memory and 512mb memory are placed in available slot you will only get the performance of a single 1gb memory.but two 1gb memory are used performance will be similar to a 2gb ram or more.

Laptop max RAM is 2GB. Had 512mb single stick. Won't accept upgra


the problem is the frequency ...you have to set into bios on the memory to read it on the lower one..so it will read both ....also if it is booting with both on but not showing into the windows properties..you have to reinstall the operating system to do that ...In-fact this is a standard procedure when you upgrade the Ram memory ..even if it reads it all ok ..you still have to reinstall...
You was kinda messy in explanations and I didnt quite understand what kinda memory you put in and it do not boot at all..but remember that this laptop will not read anything bigger than !G on one slot ..and ..if it reads them separately ...but when you put them together it is not even starting on reading devices..than you have to insert them and short the bios to reset all to the factory defaults with the memory in ...in that moment the bios settings will force to the lowest frequency ..in this case the one from the 512 unit ..

I need to upgrade ram memory in flybook V5 from 2 gb to 4 gb. How to do it?


If you are unsure of how to install memory, I would take your system to a repair shop and have them do it for you.

this system will support 4gb of ram, but what you have to buy depends on what you already have installed.

If you have a single 2gb stick, that's easy....buy another 2gb and have it installed. if you have two 1gb sticks....then you would have to purchase two 2gb sticks to upgrade.

Oper. sytem will not load w/ 2 Gb upgrade only w/ 1Gb and original 512 in an everex nc1502 stepnote


Is your "2GB upgrade" one memory-stick, or two?
If it is one, then it's possible that the motherboard does not support so much RAM on one stick.
If it is two, then remove one stick, and try.
If it still fails, then remove that stick, and try the other stick.
If it still fails, then try your original 512KB stick.
If it still fails, then try your original 1GB stick.

Can't upgrade memory past 1gb when max is 2gb


I have the same issue with my laptop. I have not been able to get the laptop to accept 2gb of memory yet, but I did find something that works. If you put your 512mb memory that works in the laptop and then add a 1gb stick in the second slot it works. Or at least it did for me. It's better than nothing. I am still trying to figure out how to get it up to the 2gb max. Will add a solution if I figure it out.
