How can I increase memory of toshiba Satellite A105


A RAM expansion slot is located on the bottom of the laptop behind a small panel. Remove the panel to get access to the RAM slot/s. It may have two RAM slots, if it has only one the the 1st RAM slot will most likely be located under the keyboard.
If the laptop has two RAM slots on the bottom of the laptop and the 2nd one is empty then you can add anothe RAM module. Try to get the same make and model as the original to double your RAM..
If both slots are occupied then you need to replace the existing RAM with larger capacity RAM modules.

I have a Toshiba Satellite 1905-S301 that has 512mb of DDR memory currently. I have a stick of 128 that I was going to throw in there to boost performance but when I opened the compartment the there was...


There are 2 types of memory, one for laptops and one for pc.

Your additional stick seems to be for pc from what your saying.

Additional thoughts:
I'm sure you can buy sticks for laptops at walmart or whereever you bought ur laptop. Just make sure it is the same speed type. Example: yours is 512mb ddr PC 5200, you will need to find PC5200, the 512mb and up you shouldnt have to worry about. So do your research before you upgrade or you will burn your laptop.

Wheres the ram?


RAM modules must be installed in special locations on the motherboard called Sockets. These memory sockets are what hold the RAM module in place and can range from 1 to 16 or more. Banks consist of a group of 1 or more sockets. A system can have 1 or more of these banks of sockets. If a system has more than 1 socket in a bank, a Kit must be purchased for that bank. A kit is simply more than one, usually 2 or 4, like RAM modules. All sockets in a bank must be filled. Typically you will see 2x512MB or 2x256MB signifying you get 2 units of 512MB RAM modules or 2 units of 256MB RAM modules, respectively.
The Toshiba Satellite A40-S270 has 2 bank(s) which have 1 socket(s) in each bank for a total of 2 memory socket(s). This means the Satellite A40-S270 can support up to 2 individual RAM modules.
Below is a visual representation of the memory bank(s) and socket(s) configuration for the Toshiba Satellite A40-S270.
socket_1.gifsocket_1.gif This graphical representation above details what the memory configuration would look like with the maximum memory installed and does not necessarily model your system memory configuration. This graphical representation is not drawn to scale and should only be used as a general reference. Please consult your system’s user manual for your actual memory configuration.

Upgrade memory for legacy Toshiba Satellite A40-S270


If those are the correct specs for your computer, you can indeed install two 1 Gb sticks in it. The overheating may be caused by a ventilation issue on the laptop. There is an access door on the bottom of the laptop that is held in place with a Phillips head screw, you can remove the panel and see if there are two sticks installed. .

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


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.
