Upgrading Ram on my Toshiba A135 S2386 Laptop, still under warrantly

I recently bought a Toshiba Laptop from Best Buy. I alo bought an additional 1 GB of Ram ( same specification) from New Egg. However while trying to install the ram, I could not open the ram cover at the back of the laptop. I was ableto unscrew the cover, but it seems to be stuck with a couple of plastc latches on both side of the cover and I was could not remove it with reasonable force. Please suggest, how to replace the ram. and does it affect warrantly in any way.

Hi there. There are 2 locations on the border of the plastic cover, both on the same side. You need to use a small flat screwdriver or your nail, and lift the cover using those 2 spots. It will snap out of place ! If you hold the laptop upside down, the front of the laptop closest to you, the 2 places where u need to lift are on the right side. You need to lift on that side, and the plastic latches are on the left side only. Hope you see what i mean ! But basically, lift right side. Thanks ! cheebster.

I need to reset the bios password on my daughters laptop


ReSetting Bios Password on Toshiba Satellite A135-S2386

1)Remove Laptop Battery

2)Take off Memory Cover(underneath - square cover, Sits in middle of laptop 1 retaining screw

3)Using two thumbs spread spring clips to outside and pull out RAM memory.

4)Remove clear vinyl label opposite RAM memory slots in upper left corner( laptop battery slot is on right, DVD drive is facing away from you)

5)Using a magnifying glass (unless you have perfect vision)in the upper left corner you will see JOPEN1 with a white silkscreen square next to it . Inside the square you will see what looks like the letter T over a U. Using a metal paper clip short the U to the Silver 1/4" post connecting the motherboard to the laptop case(this is your ground, it is located above what looks like a silkscreen outline of a chip)hold for 25 -30 seconds.

6) Place back your RAM memory, put in the laptop battery and test start laptop. you should see a selection of F1 or F2 for setup. Using the F2 gets you into the Bios menu where you reset the time and date. Then Tab over to the SECURITY setting tab and change your passwords. Now hit F10 key ,yes to save and your done!

Note: if your having trouble your most likely grounding the ground(that blob of solder about 1/8"dia on both ends of the "silkscreen chip outline"

Toshiba Locks up


The reason your laptop is rebooting is due to a faulty RAM memory card. Replace your Ram Card(s) and all should be fine. Toshiba's are common for faulting due to damaged sectors in the ram cards

Toshiba laptop problem


The right memory for your laptop is

256MB Memory (PC2-4200) KTT533D2/256, PA3389U-2M25 KTOS534

512MB Memory (PC2-4200) KTT533D2/512, PA3412U-1M51, PA3412U-2M51 KTOS535

1GB Memory (PC2-4200) KTT533D2/1G, PA3411U-2M1G KTOS536

Using the wrong memory can caused motherboard failure.

Try reinserting the old one memory module.
Be sure that the memory is placed in the right way

Wi-fi ability lost with RAM upgrade


Hi,

It is possible that the WiFi card was dislodged or inadvertently snap out of position. Should you venture on a DIY, pls remove the bottom panel covering the memory and/or add-on cards. The WiFi card would be the one with one or two black or gray small cable/wire with connectors at the end. Unsnap the said WiFi card, partially remove/pull from the slot, re-insert and snap back. It may be necessary to wiggle a little bit to ensure that the pins are in contact with the corresponding slot pins. Thereafter, close the lid/panel cover and reboot the laptop.

Should problem persist, you may need to return the unit to whoever replaced the memory and present your concern.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
