Toshiba A200 1Ai memory slot not working

I bought two 2gb ram,fitted them but only one showed up.I took one out and it would not start so i put it in the other slot and the laptop started so now i know which slot is faulty.

I tried pressing down on the slots and turned the laptop on but it was still the same.

Is there anyway i can repair this or do i need a new motherboard,if so where would i get one?

New board, the actual ram slot is toast, you can get a replacement board from Toshiba themselves but at a retarded price, at this point cheapest thing to do would be to just put in one 2 gig stick in the working slot so at least you have 2 gigs and forget about the other one (replacement mother-board for your machine is roughly 200 bucks) i checked it at work (future-shop)

I put a 2gb ddr2-667 memory chip in the single (only) memory slot in my gateway nx100x notebook pc. The pc will not boot up with the 2gb memory card. Is there a compatibility problem or do I have a ba


yes, there may be compatibility problem. your 2GB ram may be dead. try your 2gb ram on other notebooks. if it is working on other notebooks, then your ram is ok. your notebook will support maximum 2GB ddr2 memory per slot. your notebook may not be booting due to unsupported frequency of your ram. maximum supported frequency for your notebook may me 400Mhz, and you are putting a 667MHz ram into it. try to put a 400MHz 2GB ddr2 ram in your notebook.

Step 3 photo shows the Memory Compartment.

Two ram memory (SO-DIMM) can be used. There are two ram memory slots.

1GB however, IS the largest amount for EACH slot.

2G memory card not working


Hi,

If the original memory card (RAM Stick) is working, then it just means two things; either the 2GB memory card is defective or incompatible with your system. Incompatible means the type is not for your motherboard or the 2GB is more than what your computer can handle. You dont need any drivers for your memory card (RAM).

Try to install a 1GB first and check if it is working. make sure the type (ddr,ddr2,ddr3) is the same as the original and the Bus speed (3200,667,800,etc.) is the same as well to eliminate incompatibility errors.

Hope this helps.

I have a lap top Dell Precision M20 and replaced the old ram from the slot below the keyboard with 512 MB by a new with 1GB. It worked fine! Since I bought two times 1GB, I inserted also the second in the...


these different ram slots have different bus speed so they really don't work if you are using them both at once.

Please check your laptop's documentation about the speeds of these ram slots.

Changing the ram in my toshiba stellite a45 laptop


I don’t have a diagram for upgrading memory in this particular model, but it’s very easy. You can access both memory slots from the bottom of the laptop if you remove the memory cover. The cover is located in the middle, right beside the fans. All you have to do is remove 2 screws and remove the cover. I believe Satellite P15 memory is expandable to 2GB in both slots (Slot A + Slot B = 2GB) and you can use PC2100 DDR RAM, PC2700 memory should work too (it will run at PC2100 speed).

Check the laptop specifications before you buy new RAM module. I just discovered that different Satellite P15 models use different memory types. For example, according to Toshiba specifications Satellite P15-S409 uses PC2100 DDR memory, but Toshiba Satellite P15-S479 uses PC2700 DDR memory (I think it might be a typo, but not really sure).

I want to change the 2 x 512DDR ram by 2x 2GB DDR ram memories in my A205-S4577/Toshiba. Will it work?


hi,
it will work as your notebook is supporting maximum 4 gb RAM but please check that you are using 32 bit operating system or 64 bit one.
If it is 32 bit then the system will be showing 3.2 gb RAM only as this is the 32 bit os limitation.

Laptop screen dont like keyboard slot ram


The NX6310 laptop supports up to 4 Gb of RAM either 533 or 667 MHz DDR SDRAM.
When memory upgrades don't work, the problem could be incapable memory between RAM modules.
Try to use RAM from the same manufacturer, especially the manufacturer of the working RAM.
Use RAM that have the same speed specification.

I put two 2GB RAM in my memory slot and only one is registering, so instead of 4GB RAM, I have 2GB. Why is this and what can I do to get the full 4GB?


ok i checked on your model and it says 2gb RAM max and so it is probably seeing both chips but only seeing 1gb each since that is what the slot is made for..
But to be totally sure you might wqant to check the bios and see what it says since some bios will sometimes give more details as to how many chips are installed.
or take out one chip and turn the computer back on and see if it shows 1gb or 2gb if it shows 1gb with one 2gb chip then you will know that the slot wont read more than 1gb.
