Question about Toshiba Satellite M105-S1021 Notebook

2 Answers

Cant install two emory modules as can only find one slot!

Just received two 1GB memory modules to upgrade my Toshiba Satellite M105-S1021 laptop, problem is, I can't see where the standard RAM is to remove it to add both. Have installed one of the modules and is working fine but would really like to remove the standard 512mb to upgrade mine to the maximum so any help would be greatly appreciated.
Have researched loads on the net the past few days waiting for them to arrive and it has said on numerous sites that I have two memory slots, hence why i am so confused.
Thanks,
Steve

I hope you have not gave up on your problem. Your Notebook is equipped with two memory module slots. One slot is user accessible ( under the notebook) , the other slot sits beneath the keyboard under a EMI shield (Electromagnetic interference Shield). All it requires is the removal of the panel where the power button is at and two screws that hold in the keyboard. If you are uncertain of performing this task, any local Certified computer shop can perform this in 5 minutes.

if you think you can tackle this task it is not hard and i have detailed photo's if you need them.

How do I replace the internal memory module on a Toshiba Satellite M105-s1021?


You should remove the memory cover underneath your laptop first. There are several covers but only one is the correct one.
The modules unclip by way of the clips on the side of the modules.
BEFORE YOU TOUCH THE MODULES ensure that the battery has been removed and you have touched the VGA output socket, to discharge yourself from static, or the modules will possibly get damaged.
Only touch the side ends of the modules, (where the fixing slots are), to avoid damage.
Make sure the replacement module/s are of the same make and type otherwise you may get problems.
I hope this helps.

Adding memory to a a75-s211


How much memory did it have before you removed the 256Mb RAM?
If it had 756Mb RAM then the memory in the laptop has 512 Mb plus 256 Mb RAM modules, the 256Mb in the slot you can see and possibly 512Mb in a slot under the keyboard or soldered on the motherboard.
Therefore by removing the 256Mb and replacing with 1Gb memory module will give you a total of 1.5Gb

Memory slot #2 in the Toshiba Satellite M105 - S3074


The second memory chip is directly under the keyboard. you need to gently pry off the plastic cover above the keyboad that has the speaker grid on it. under there you will find the screws to remove the keyboard and then under the keyboard you will find the additional chip. I maxed mine out with 4gb. but since I'm only running 32 bit it only uses 3gb. If your gonna upgrade be sure to do it in pairs.

Number of Slots:
Slot 1 Slot 2 Normally you will find the 2 slots, one above the other.
Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300,DDR2 PC2-4200 with a maximum of 2GB per slot.*
*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory. Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules. Make sure that both are fully seated prior to powering up the laptop.
