Its at the base of the laptop under a screw, generally in the very center. You may find the Hard Drive or CPU but the RAM looks like a small chip plugged in sideway. Try not to touch any of the components before you are sure you don't have any static on you. it could destroy the device.

You have to make sure you get the same RAM as the one currently in there. for example PC6400, you must get another PC6400. Try and get ram the same brand and chip. It will still work if its different but not as good.

By default your Laptop has only 40GB, you should upgrade that too if you want to. If you do, you will need to reinstall Windows.

Is there a way the memory in a toshiba satellite 1005-s157 be increased to more than 512MB?


Yes you can, at least to 1 Gb maybe possibly to 2 Gb.
There will be two memory slots in your laptop. To increase the RAM to 1 Gb install another 512 Mb RAM module in the empty 2nd memory slot. Make sure you use the same make and speed RAM as the one that is installed.
If you have two 256 Mb RAM modules installed in your laptop then you need to replace the two 256 Mb RAM modules with two 512 Mb RAM modules to get a total of 1 Gb RAM.

HOW MUCH DDR2 MEMORY FOR LAPTOP


Referring to a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 series of Notebook PC:

According to the Service Manual;

1) The Maximum Total Amount of Ram Memory depends on the Northbridge chipset used.
(System Controller. Intel)

If it is an Intel GM965 chipset, the maximum total amount is 4GigaByte. (4GB)
If it is an Intel GL960 chipset, the maximum total amount is 2GB.

Northbridge chipset (Or System Controller)

The Northbridge chipset was aptly named so, because of the general location of the chipset on the motherboard.
It is generally located under the Processor.

(The Southbridge chipset is located further 'South' on the motherboard)

The Northbridge chipset handles the faster capabilities of the computer.
It handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and High-Speed graphics.

High-speed graphics being AGP or PCI-Express.
Integrated Graphics, or a graphics card installed into a PCI slot is NOT high-speed graphics.

This is handled by the Southbridge chipset.
The Southbridge chipset handles the slower capabilities of the computer.

Motherboard diagram;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

Information on the Northbridge (computing),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northbridge_%28computing%29


Information on the Intel GM965, and GL960 chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_Mobile_chipsets

Look under the heading Chipset at GL960.
Looking across you can see that the chipset supports;

1) DDR2 Sdram that is either 533MegaHertz, or 677MHz. (SO-DIMM ram memory for laptops)
2) Supports up to 3GB

[ Your laptop has TWO ram memory slots. The primary, or Main ram memory slot, (Outside edge), and the Optional ram memory slot, (Inside towards the middle)

There are No 1.5GB ram memory modules. ('Stick')
This is why 2GB is the maximum with the Intel GL960 chipset.

Install one 2GB ram memory module in the Main ram memory compartment,
OR,
Install one 1GB ram memory module, in the main ram memory compartment, and one 1GB ram memory module in the Optional ram memory compartment ]


Now look under the Chipset heading at GM965.
1) Supports DDR2 Sdram at either 533MHz, or 677MHz.
2) Supports up to 4GB.

How to know what Northbridge (System Controller) chipset your laptop uses?
Use CPU-Z from CPUID.com

Information on CPU-Z on Wikipedia,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU-Z


CPU-Z,

http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z/versions-history.html

If you need guidance in downloading, installing, and using CPU-Z, hit me up in a Comment.

Download page for the free Service Manual, for the Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-toshiba

Scroll down with your eyes to the heading - Satellite Pro
Go across, and click on - L300

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on - L300 - it may take up to 30 seconds before you will see the first page come up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

Have questions I'm right here.

{Now you know Why, How, and Where.
You can tell your friends about your new found knowledge}

How can I increase memory of toshiba Satellite A105


A RAM expansion slot is located on the bottom of the laptop behind a small panel. Remove the panel to get access to the RAM slot/s. It may have two RAM slots, if it has only one the the 1st RAM slot will most likely be located under the keyboard.
If the laptop has two RAM slots on the bottom of the laptop and the 2nd one is empty then you can add anothe RAM module. Try to get the same make and model as the original to double your RAM..
If both slots are occupied then you need to replace the existing RAM with larger capacity RAM modules.

Where is the ram?


Removing the keyboard exposes the two memory slots, which are covered by a plastic sheet.

You can download the owners manual here which gives directions to remove and replace your ram. (Starts at page 70) Click here:

How to install additional toshiba a65 s1762 memory


Yes, you need to flip your laptop over and look for a removable compartment that requires you to unscrew a screw. Once you get the cover removed, you will see slots with either one or two memory modules installed. If one is installed, then you can add the additional memory module in the empty slot. If you have 2 already installed, then you will need to remove one and install your new module, which would only give you a total of 768 megs. Just slip the new memory in and press it down towards the motherboard and start your laptop..
