Help! I am trying to install memory & it doesn't FIT in the slot!

I bought a 512MB memory upgrade chip from Toshiba, I'm following the directions to install it and it JUST DOESN'T FIT. The chip doesn't line up with the slot right. It's ever so slightly off.

Now what?!

What you should be installing is DDR, it sounds like you have been sold DDR2, return the memory and ask for DDR
hope this helps

Toshiba sp6000 512mb sdr 133mhz chips


These are the memory modules for your notebook, any others won't work. The max is 1024mb

You need these modules:
PC133 512MB (PA3108U-1M51)
PC133 256MB (PA3086U-1M25)
PC133 128MB (PA3085U-1M12)

If the modules you've installed meet the above criteria then make sure they are seated correctly.

Bear in mind it is always possible one of the modules is defective so try them one at a time, also they are non-eec.

Can I upgrade memory to only one gb of memory or install 2 512 mb on a toshiba satellite m35x series


http://www.shopping.com/xPF-Toshiba-Toshiba-Satellite-Notebook-PC-M35X-S114

Looking at the specs, the max is 2gb for your Toshiba. According to this website, its only a 256mb ddr sdram. So my guess is you only have 1 slot for the ram. I'd go with a 2gb ram if you can afford it, 1gb just don't cut it in todays technology.

I believe its the PC2700 model, so find a 1gb or 2gb PC2700 @ 333mhz and you should be set.

Thinkpad T20 won't accept memory upgrade


according to ibm
you are allowed only pc100 memory with a maximum of 512mb.
when handling memory make sure you are grounded before touching any memory chips.
try getting another set of 256mb chips and grounding yourself before installing them.

Memory upgrade


The M45-S169 only has one available memory slot.
(I'm confused about your post that states "M45-S265" in the head line).

  • Configured with 512MB DDR SDRAM (both memory slots may be occupied)
  • 512MB(min)/2048MB (max), 256MB on-board memory with 1 available memory slot for 256MB, 512MB, or 1024MB PC2700 DDR 333MHz SDRAM 2.5V SODIMM memory modules
You can find the complete specifications here.

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.

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.

HOW TO INSTALL ANOTHER MEMORY STICK


Most newer laptops have easy access to their memory slots, I'd recommend you got to the manufacturer's website and look for the maximum memory your system will allow. If you look at the bottom side of your laptop, you may see several small covers with just one or two screws in them. One of them will be where the memory slots are. It is not uncommon for the laptop to have a very small 'memory chip' icon on the cover. Be aware that many laptops only support two memory chips, and may have both filled already. For example, if laptop has 512MB memory, it may have two x 256MB chips in it. Which would mean, that to upgrade to 1GB memory, you would have to purchase two x 512MB chips. or one 1GB chip.
