Toshiba Satellite 1105 installing 1024 meg of memory causes crash

I have checked the memory, using Microsofts memory checker, and the memory checking utility provided with Ubuntu disk. Memory is 512Meg each, Crucial CT64M64S4W75. PC133 SODIMM. The computers battery is no longe working, and I am running off of the power supply. 256 Meg works OK, there is a lot of disk thrashing with modern virus portection installed. When I remove the 256 and install one bank of 512 the computer will boot to windows, but is very unstable, and will blue screen at any random point. If I install 1024, 512 in both banks the computer will lock up at post. I have thoroughly checked the memory with this computer. I think that it is power related problem. Too much current draw from the extra memory and a undersized power supply.
I also did a clean install of Windows XP, all updates installed, and minimal software running on start up.

    The solution to the problem is...your laptop will only support 256 MB in each bank. The Crucial web site incorrectly suggests 512MB in each bank. 512MB (256MB in each bank) works perfectly.

This usually happens when the laptop is not able to take more then a certain amount of memory, as the system BIOS does not support higher. By saying ACPI as the blue screen, that tells me that the power subsystem does not 'like' having more then 512MB of RAM. I am 95% sure this is your BIOS because of that information. Check and see if you can find a BIOS upgrade for your computer model, and that might fix the issue, if an update is available.

unfortunately is sounds like your system has been compromised by a virus; which has erased or corrupted needed system files. before you give up and reformat your system you should try the Spinrite program, written by gibson research co. you can DL it here .. http://btjunkie.org/torrent/SpinRite-6-0-Release-1/3779c30edea9218ee5596b3b8c62a0aecc56767e1047

Right-mouse click anywhere on your desktop wallpaper.
Click Properties.
Click Advanced.
Click Monitor, and look for any "settings".

Or, start at http://www.toshiba.com and search for your model-number, and see if any software is available for download.

My laptop is running slow? when im in the internet my computer runs slow


Available RAM is very important for speeding up your laptop while surfing. Check your available RAM by:

  1. Starting the Task Manager (Right click on taskbar and select it)
  2. Select the Performance Tab
  3. Compare the Physical Memory vs Commit Charge numbers.

For example, my fast computer has 3600 megs of total physical memory compared to a commit charge of 1200 megs. Meanwhile, my older, slow computer has only 650 megs of total physical memory with a commit charge of 1400 megs. This means the slow computer is always making 'pretend' memory from hard drive space, and that is why it is so slow. This is most likely the case with your computer as well.

I hope that helps.

Error : 10-FC12-0002 comes up during Toshiba system rocovery what does it mean and how do i fix it?


I download this from the Toshiba support site:
While running a full system recovery from the Recovery Media, the installation may fail -- and display one of the error messages listed below. Possible causes of these error conditions are listed at right. Use this list as a troubleshooting guide -- not as an absolute list of causes, as there may be others.
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC10-1710" -- may be caused by a faulty hard drive.
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC12-0241" -- may be caused by a faulty hard drive or defective memory.
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC12-045D / 10-FC11-045D" -- may be caused by a faulty hard drive. *****
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC06-0002" -- may be caused by damaged recovery media or faulty hard drive.
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC12-0970" -- may be caused by defective memory.
*for this error 10-FC12-045D u nid to call 1-800-457-7777 toshiba advance technical support they will send it to depot or they will recommend ASP (Authorized Service Partner)

I suppose your recovery disks could be bad. You can get another set from Toshiba. I'm also concerned about the health of the hard drive. Did you need to run recovery because the system crashed, because it may not have been an operating sysem crash but rather a hard drive crash. Have the harddrive or whole laptop checked by a reoutable repair person or check my website: www.micromendllc.com

I want to now which ram is used for dell latitude 640, latitude 520, latitude 430, latitude 420 and inspiron 2200 is it ddr2 or ddr1 and max capicity for upgrade


Here are the max memory and speeds:
Lat C640 is Max 512M per stick DDR-266 (PC2100) or DDR333 ( PC2700 ) for a total of 1024 Meg

Lat D520 is either 2 or 4 Meg total. DDR2-667 ( PC2-5300 )
Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.Maximum memory for systems with the Intel 945GM chipset is 4096MB, maximum memory with the Intel 940GML chipset is 2048MB
Lat D430 has only slot with a Max of 1 Meg. You can use DDR2-667 (PC2-5300)  or DDR2-533 (PC2-4200)

Lat D420 is a max of  1.5G    . Use 1GB DDR2-533 (PC2-4200)

Inspiron 2200 is one slot with a max of 1280 Meg. recomended is 1GB DDR-333 (PC2700)

Here is a link to find almost any memory you need:
http://www.crucial.com/index.aspx

NOTE:
When mixed speeds in the same PC, the memory will run at the slowest speed installed or the highest speed allowed by your system, whichever is slower.

Good Luck

I currently have just 256mps of memory ram on my dell dimension 2400. i want to upgrade. my manual says the maxium is 1024 mbs. can i install 1gb of ram or should i get 512 mbs? i have windows xp os. thank...


1024 is 1 gig of ram. Some older motherboards require you to put in ram in pairs but I don't think your system is one of those but if you have manual or can download manual you should check to be sure. If you don't need a pair then yes you can remove the 256 meg stick and add a 1 gig stick or you can put in 2 512 meg sticks. Should run a lot better as windows recommends at least 512 megs of ram.

Why do my toshiba satellite only show 191 of ram when i have a 256 ram installed


There is nothing wrong. Your RAM may be special RAM that the computer uses some of the memory for something else.

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..

it sounds like the memory may be at issue as it heats up it dies, then cools down.
if you have 2 sticks of memory take one out and see if it will run.
if not switch to other stick.
if still not running remove all memory as the system should have 64 meg of onboard non removeable memory .

as per this google :
_________________________
Memory Upgrade for Toshiba Satellite 2250XCDS, the Toshiba Satellite 2250XCDS takes the PC100 SDRAM SODIMMs Memory Type, and comes installed with 64 MB (non-removable) of Memory.
---------------------------------------------------

windows may not boot and run at all with 64 meg so you can enter the bios screen and let it sit there,

instead of trying to unplug the system to kill it just hold the power button for 10 seconds and it should die.maybe.
