Question about Toshiba Satellite A25-S207 Notebook

1 Answer

CPU saturatuon. I upgraded to 1g with two 512mb chips. I thought this would take care of the problem but the WINDOWS TASK MANAGER still shows the CPU usage, much of the time, over 100% (saturated).. Of course this a serious problem in speed. Your advise would be greatly appreciated. capttom888@aol.com

You'll need to look at the Processes panel in the Task Manager to see which processes are consuming your CPU cycles. If you click on the CPU column heading, the process list will re-sort based on CPU usage. If the list appears to be arranged low-to-high ('00' at the top), click on the heading again and the list will reverse so that it appears high-to-low ('00' at the bottom). Once you identify the contributing processes, you can troubleshoot them one-at-a-time.

My pc speed is too slow. sometime it hag very much .please i request you to give mesome solution


Slow Windows Machine! Sounds like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in Task-Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE). Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Determine the amount of Memory (RAM) installed in the computer.


Using Windows XP, click Start
Right-mouse-click on My Computer.
Click Properties.
On the page that is displayed will be the CPU-type, CPU-speed, and amount of available RAM.

Or, press CTRL-ALT-DELETE and click 'Task Manager'.
Click 'Performance'.
The 'Physical Memory' is the amount of available RAM.

On some computers, the video-card "steals" from the installed RAM,
i.e., 512MB installed, 32MB "stolen", leaving 480MB "available".

Memory upgrade


It looks like the A25 will only hold 1g of PC2100, which is really plenty, unless you're a serious gamer or into graphic arts and need an extreme high definition video. Here's a link to the memory configurator that I use in order to find the proper memory, max held, and the chipset. You might double check to be sure I looked up the right machine. If it is the right machine, I suggest two 512mb chips. Sometimes you can't run one 1g chip because the slots are designed to only hold a certain amount, and if they will hold the 1g chip, sometime the machine doesn't run properly. It wants to use both slots accordingly, running only one creates conflicts. This should help in boosting your RAM.

IBM thinkpad g40..i want to upgrade


To upgrade your CD drive there is a screw on the bottom of the machine that holds it in place. Remove this screw and the drive will slide out. I buy most drives for my customers and shop from Ebay. I've found that there are some very good vendors with good prices and warranties there. Now for the memory. The memory you need for your machine is PC2100, and 1g is the max. I mainly use Kingston or Infiniton. Both of these are good chips, and there are other good chips out there. I suggest that you use two 512mb chips that are the same make. I've found that sometimes two different chips will create a conflict with each other. The memory is located under a panel on the bottom of the machine. For memory I use pricewatch.com If you have any other questions please fell free to ask.

IBM ThinkPad T40 2GB Max RAM


The T40 has two ram slots, you can put a 1g chip in each totaling 2g. If the chip will remove, then it is changeable. Vista needs a minimum of 256 to run, so, when you change BOTH chips to equal 2g it will probably read 1.744g, or it may read the full 2g. If it only reads 1g, then the second slot under keyboard may have malfunctioned. It could also be that the 256 chip is bad and your really only running 512 now. With all that said, in order to achieve 2g, you will need to put a 1g chip in each slot.
