How do I upgrade my bios for toshiba laptop ?


Why do you want to update the BIOS of your laptop? Be careful about updating your BIOS because it might cause your computer to crash.

Or are you trying to update the drivers in your computer?

If you are having some issues with its performance, then you need to update all the outdated drivers in your computer. I know that it's a total headache if you do the update manually but don't worry because there are Automatic PC Updater like RadarSync. It will scan and update all outdated drivers in your computer.

I hope this helps!

Is there a way the memory in a toshiba satellite 1005-s157 be increased to more than 512MB?


Yes you can, at least to 1 Gb maybe possibly to 2 Gb.
There will be two memory slots in your laptop. To increase the RAM to 1 Gb install another 512 Mb RAM module in the empty 2nd memory slot. Make sure you use the same make and speed RAM as the one that is installed.
If you have two 256 Mb RAM modules installed in your laptop then you need to replace the two 256 Mb RAM modules with two 512 Mb RAM modules to get a total of 1 Gb RAM.

Mixing Memory


You can't install two RAMs with different MHz on a single motherboard. Sometimes it works but, usually one of the RAM gets busted. This is based on my experience though.

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.

Have a compaq presario sr2170nx....installed 1 gb memory but not showing up. swapped the memory sticks positions and restarted but still wont show up.


If you do not get the right memory for your computer it will not work. the memory you need is listed in the table below. And pay attention to the max amount of ram. Your system can only hold 2 gig and it comes with one gig installed

Component Attributes Memory Installed 1 GB Maximum allowed 2 GB (2 x 1 GB) Speed supported PC2-4200 MB/sec Type 240 pin, DDR2 SDRAM

Toshiba satellite a100,wa-1 memory upgrade


Hi,

Take out all the memory cards and wipe the gold part of the memory modules.

Then insert the two 512 modules & check the memory.

If it shows the correct readings, then the two modules are detected.

Then insert the 1 gb & other one 512 module.

If it shows the correct readings, then the two modules are detected.

Then use the other one gb with the same 512 & check if it shows the correct readings.

Then the two 2 gb modules are fine.

Now insert the two 1 gb modules & check now.

There are ECC type & non-ECC type memory modules are available, chck which one your computer supports & which type you have.

If it shows the correct readings, then the two modules are detected and fine.

Then you can also swap the slot and check if any memory module is not detectd correctly.

Some have four slots & i dont know how many slots your laptop have.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
