FYI, for major manufacturers like HP or Dell, you can just go to www.crucial.com and use the Memory Configurator to find out what kind of RAM your PC uses and needs. Further, they link to the RAM you need after testing so you can just buy it there if you want.

BTW, you don't say what OS you are using. If you're using XP x32 or Vista x32, Windows won't see more than 3 - 3.25 GB of that RAM if you get 4 GB. To be able to use the rest, you'll need to make sure your OS is x64.

No, i strongly suggest to get the 4GB (2gbx 2) memory , since the memory is so cheap now, go www.newegg.com check out the price, and no get the 1066mhz, becasue this is for new computer.....................

you must get the 800mhz or lower, otherwise you have have some side effect for 1099mhz memory card........

Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5882 has two RAM ports for 1GB &2 GB DDR2 800MHZ, one got spoiled, am now using 2GB RAM, can this single port operate with 4GB RAM?


Unfortunately, the slots on this motherboard are limited to a max of 2 GB each. You won't be able to use a 4 GB DDR2 800MHz memory stick with this computer. (This limit is due to the way the circuitry/programming of the board was designed.)

I wish that I had better news for you. You might be better off installing a Unix based OS which uses less memory or searching for a new laptop. Just remember to save your files on a different drive before making any changes.

Have an HP Pavilion ze4935wm laptop. Want to upgrade to higher GB and RPM. What is the highest I can go with this type of laptop?


This is an older laptop that uses a PATA (sometime called EIDE or ATA-100) drive.
The largest drives commonly available in PATA type for laptops are 320GB, at 5400 RPM.
There are bigger and faster laptop drives, but they will not work with that laptop since the bigger drives require a SATA interface.
PATA drives are more expensive than their SATA equivalents, it might be better to invest your upgrade dollars into a newer laptop.

Have 512MB RAM. Was told to max it out because the machine is extremely slow. Has two slots with 256MB. Can I put two 512MB memory modules in those slot to increase 1G or RAM?


yes, after looking up your laptop on hp's website, I have determined the kind of memory you need; (assuming your computer is the one you put in the question, HP Pavilion ze4805us Notebook PC)

you need 2x 512 mb, 200-pin, DDR 266 memory

I looked and found some Corsair (highly respected company in computer memory) memory, for 22.99 for each DIMM (you'll need to buy 2); see link below.

If you have any more questions, please let me know!

Thanks,

Upgraded my p35-S6292 laptop from 512gb to (2) 1GB


make sure that the two memory module have the same speed. say for example. if the first memory has a 667mhz speed the other memory should also be 667mhz. different memory speeds will cause conflicts.

It actually sounds like your memory is corrupt. I would look into purchasing new RAM. In order to ensure you find what your system takes, I have taken the liberty of looking it up for you.

Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*
*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.

you can find a 2x1 gb set for $60.

Good Luck!

Hi there.
Yes you can upgrade the memory to 2 x 512MB DDR SDRAM memory.

Please be gentle when installing the new memory taking care to remove the battery and the mains power from the laptop first before installing.
