Re: How do I determine what kind of memory that I need?
In order to know what kind of memory you need you will have to look up the model of the computer and hopefully that is it. High density is manufacturer specific and it is very important if you order hi density for the wrong brand it wont work. My educated guess is you will want low density 266mhz and depending on how new you might only be able to upgrade 256 mb per stick I hope this helps i know its a confusing subject but really you just need to get online and start researching ram before you make any decisions.
Re: How do I determine what kind of memory that I need?
Go to Crucial.com and install their configuration utility through your browser. They will tell you what you have and all the combinations you can do to max out your system. Look at the specs of the RAM and you can get it from Crucial or some other vendor.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. goodluck!

open the panned which is located on the base of the laptop and just buy a ram use the model number listed in the catalog or you also check from toshiba website using the model number of your laptop.
there will be two slots in the laptop one which will have a RAM on it and the you will see the other slot which is empty so you just need to insert the RAM like the way previous ram is attached on it. and thats it you can turn on your lappy and u r good to go
You need memory for your computer. But how should you choose the right kind? Whether you're upgrading your computer or building a new one, learn now.
Step 1 If you bought your computer from a manufacturer, use a search engine or go to the manufacturer's site to find the specs on your model. The max RAM found in the specs is likely the max RAM the whole system supports. To find the largest size module the system supports, divide the max supported RAM by the number of slots. Also listed in the specs should be the max speed supported and DDR type (listed as DDR, DDR2, or DDR3). Alternatively, instead of max speed and DDR type, the specs may list something like PC# ####, where the "#" is some number. This is just a different way of representing speed and DDR type, and works equally well in finding the right RAM. If you know the largest supported module, max supported speed, and DDR type, skip to the Tips and Warnings section.
Step 2 If you're building a new computer, follow the above step, except search for motherboard model specs rather than computer model specs. If you don't know the model, look for it printed on the board.
Step 3 If you couldn't find your computer's specs, the info wasn't detailed enough, or you have a custom-built computer, go to http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html (also in the resources below) and download the freeware SIW. Install and run it. On the left side, under the "Hardware" section, select "Memory."
Step 4 The "Memory Summary" section on the right side shows the maximum amount of memory that can be installed in the system (listed as "Maximum Capacity"), and below that is the number of memory slots (listed as "Memory Slots"). The "Device Locator" sections tell whether or not memory is installed in that slot. To get the largest size module the motherboard supports, divide the "Maximum Capacity" by "Memory Slots." To get the speed and type, look under the "Device Locator" section, for the listing "Memory Type." Write down the PC#-#### part, where "#" is some number. Also for the listing "Speed," write down the value in parenthesis. For example, in 333 MHz (DDR2 667), write down only the (DDR2 667). You now have the largest supported module, RAM speed, and DDR type. You can use either the PC#-#### or the speed and type when searching for RAM.
In Step 4, you found a supported RAM speed, but it may not be the fastest supported. Just to make sure, look to the left side in SIW. Under the "Hardware" section, select "Motherboard." Using this info, go to the manufacturer's site or do a web search, and see if you can find what maximum RAM speed the motherboard supports.
Step 6 If you're building a new computer and need to buy RAM, look up the specs on your motherboard to find out what kind of memory it supports.
Step 7 The RAM you buy should be no larger than the max supported module size, and should match the type and speed supported by the motherboard.
It needs more memory..go to Crucial.com let it scan or insert your laptops info and see what the max memory your laptop will handle and what type it uses..you dont have to buy it there..now you know what type it uses..
You need the low density ram and not high density. Unfortunately the low density stuff is rather more expensive then the high density so you're best trying to get some second hand - ebay maybe? I think the cpx only accepts pc100 even though the crucial site recommends PC133.
Hope this helps.
take your laptop to a specialist. he will determin whether is it a ddr or not, it will be opened and asuitable ram with memory that will balance that of you processor will be installed. this comes with costs though, so you should be prepared to spend much on the ram buying and installation levies.
If your laptop does not display a POST (power on start test)information your RAM could be faulty or the RAM is not making proper electrical connection.
Try reseating your RAM (memory), remove and reinsert the memory module a few times. Then reboot your laptop.
If it still does not work, then the memory may be faulty. You could test your memory in another laptop or try memory from another laptop in your laptop, to determine whether your memory is OK or not before you commit to buy new RAM.
Check the Windows Page File to determine whether it's system managed or manually set. The recommended settings is twice the amount of RAM installed in the machine. If set too low the system will hang often, especially when running memory hungry apps.
I would also suggest checking screensaver and power management options in the control panel.
If those don't work, close any unused applications which run at startup (Start, Run, MSCONFIG). Another possible solution could be updating your display driver.
Could you please post the model number of the laptop? We can respond back with the memory you need, or you can go to www.crucial.com and use their Memory Configurator to determine what type you need. I would recommend purchasing from www.newegg.com since they have such great prices and fast shipping. Happy buying!
You need to determine if you have DDR or DDRII. And then determine if you have one stick of 512, or if you have 2 sticks of 256. Once you know this information, visit your local Best Buy or purchase somewhere online, a memory upgrade. Such as 2 sticks at 512mb for 1 gig total. Assuming you have two memory slots, should have anyway.
DDRII is fairly cheap right now, be a good time to upgrade. DDR on the other hand, is still a little more expensive.
