Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook

1 Answer

Toshiba sattelite Hi - I recently bought this laptop and after installing The Sims 2 and umpteen expansions realised it only had 512 memory. (I only use it in emergencies for ebay and hadnt bothered about slowness) I have purchased 2 x 1 gig memory sticks and have a strange problem - if i insert either stick into either of the memory slot it upgrades to 1 gig and works fine, but if i insert both into both to upgrade to 2 gig my laptop wont boot up at all. Both memory sticks are fine and both slots are but all 4 together and nothing ! any help please?

The problem must be the amount of total memory. Maybe the board supports only 1 gig. Chek the manual.

Is the sims 3 late night expansion pack compatible to the windows 8


store bought, probably not. Game needs to have patch 1.42 installed manually from this site: " http://www.thesims3.com/game/patches " and then run the launcher for the game, once the game is installed.

When i try to boot my toshiba a75 laptop i receive a boot last good ... it won't boot i removed memory module i installed 2 yrs ago and it boots ... i purchased new memory module and get same error- it...


Below are the specs to the type of memory that can be installed in the A75...it is very specific and cannot be anything else then what is listed. You have 512 mb built onto the motherboard, with one expansion slot. That slot can only hold up to 1 gb stick if the BIOS has been upgraded. Go to Toshiba support and make sure the BIOS on the machine is up to date so it will accept the larger stick of ram memory and make sure all the specs are right on the stick that you have.

Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*

  • Maximum Memory: 1536MB
  • Slots: 1 (1 bank of 1)
  • Standard Memory: 512, 768, or 1024MB (512MB non-removable)
  • USB Support: 2.x Compliant

    Sims and sims 2 on external hard drive?


    It works great, I had to do the same thing. All you have to do is save it to the external drive. yes all the programs and expansions need to be on the external drive.

    When it asks you if you want to put it on the C:/programs/simms as it always does, just change the "C" to what ever drive your external drive is. do this with each game.

    You will me living like a simm in no time. Let me know how you did..

    Cant Start Up


    Hi
    start with removing the added ram try starting up, if it doesn\t start up does it beep?

    if noting happens remove all the ram, the computer should definitely beep now.
    Add only the original memory and try starting up you should get picture.

    This seems to be a old problem and if you don\t need assistance in solving it. It would be great if you would share to the world how you fixed your problem so other users can benefit from your experience.

    Thank you, Ekse

    The sims 2 and my laptop don't seem to be compatible.


    Apparently if your graphics card is intergrated then it can cause problems because its shared and its not the same as a normal graphics card.

    Also when you install more and more expansion packs the game gradually slows down possibly crashing.

    Upgrading RAM and Batteries


    For batteries, my advice would be to stick with the brand of the unit (Toshiba, in this case). Toshiba lists a 12 cell battery on their website under the "laptop accessories" section of www.toshiba.com. For the A60, the part number is listed as PA3382U-1BRS and costs $152.99. You can search google for another place to buy (perhaps where you bought the laptop) but be careful that you don't get a generic in place of the original (OEM). With memory, Kingston and PNY are the aftermarket leaders and you can't go wrong with either. Kingston's website lists a whole slew of specific A60 models. Some with 256MB on board (not removable) and some with 512MB on board. So, a 512MB chip may give you 768MB or 1024MB depending on the exact model. Max memory seems to be either 1.25GB or 1.5GB depending on how much is onboard (and not removable). Installation is usually easy on any laptop and typically requires only a small screw driver to remove the memory cover on the bottom. The owners manual for the laptop likely gives the steps to add memory.
