Question about PNY Optima 1GB PC2-5300 DDR2 SoDIMM Notebook Memory
So im planning to buy more ram for my toshiba satellite s351 and i was just wondering, would the memory mentioned above be compatible with my computer?
SOURCE: Need to install memory
It's fairly simple.
How about a short video from youtube?
Here are a couple links:
A couple things to remember:
Ground yourself on the computer case.
Make sure the notche(s) line up.

You may have a bad memory stick. If the two are not exactly the same spec they may not be compatible.
Haev you checked that your motherboard is capable of handling 2gb of memory? And that it is the correct type of memory(size and speed) and that you are placing it in the correct slots(ddr2 only goes in ddr2 slots and ddr only works in ddr)
The power supply makes no real difference to memory, replacing that is not a solution

Turn the computer off.
Remove the battery.
Unplug the AC adapter.
Turn the computer bottom-up.
Look for a few screws that secure a small panel.
Unscrew those screws, and remove the panel.
If you've selected the right panel, you should see your current RAM.
On the LEFT and RIGHT edges, there are small "fingers" that are holding the RAM.
Gently pull those fingers away from the RAM, and it should pop-up slightly, and you should be able to remove the RAM.
Notice that the "notch" in the middle of the RAM is slightly off-centre.
Insert the new RAM into the socket, and gently press down, until those two fingers "click" to grab the new RAM.
Depending on your "old" RAM, you may have:
* one "occupied" RAM slot (1GB), and one "empty" RAM slot;
* two "occupied" RAM slots (512MB/stick).
So, you may have to remove one RAM stick, to expose an "empty" RAM-slot "hidden" under the RAM.
Or, the "empty" RAM-slot may be visible without removing the RAM.
Or, you may have to remove one of the 512MB RAM-sticks, in order to free-up a slot for the "new" RAM.
Replace the cover-panel, and screw it in.
Reconnect the battery.
Reconnect the power-supply.
Start the computer.
Point at My Computer
Right-mouse click on My Computer
It should display your CPU-speed and the "new" amount of installed RAM.
