No you can't upgrade to more than 512mb of ram. The max memory your motherboard can handle is 512mb. You can update the bios but it still won't let you install more than 512mb. If your laptop is running a little bit slow I would suggest installing System Mechanics. It will make your system run a little bit faster. Here is the site http://www.iolo.com/

Toshiba Satellite 2405-S221 Laptop takes the PC2100 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs Memory Type, and comes installed with 256 MB (removable) of Memory. You can upgrade your Toshiba Satellite 2405-S221 Laptop to up to a maximum of 512 MB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install Memory, already with 256 MB (removable) standard Memory installed.

In short.... yeah, 512k is the max.

Doesn't appear to a bios limitation. It is a hardware issue that is limiting the amount.

I want to upgrade the RAM of Toshiba Satellite PS240U-00UMRX . What maximum RAM I can put? Can I put 1 GB?


Nah. The max RAM for this model is 512MB (256MBx 2) - uses PC2100 or PC2700 memory. This model will not recognize anything beyond a 256MB module.

Downloads web pages slow i have fios internet but do i need a faster processor to make this computer load faster


download ccleaner and run it.
make sure you have 5gb of free space on your hard drive.
make sure you have only one virus checker running.

go to crucial.com and get an online check to see if you could do with some more memory.

if you are on wifi download "inssider" and run it see if there are lots of people using the same channel as you

Toshiba Satellite 2405-S221.


Unplug the powercord and try to move around the DC-Jack with a small flatheat screwdriver. If the jack moves around freely or the middle pin has too much slack you most likely have a defective DC-Jack. You can replace it yourself there are guides online that show you how to do this. The repair takes about 2-3 hours. I work for a company called Laptop Repair NYC and we do this repair frequently.

Forget password


you will need to clear the BIOS password by:

On the computer motherboard locate the BIOS clear / password jumper or dipswitch and change its position. Once this jumper has been changed, turn on the computer and the password should be cleared. Once cleared, turn the computer off and return the jumper or dipswitch to its original position.

on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

Alternatively you can locate the CMOS battery on the motherboard a remove it for at least 10mins allowing the computer to lose all of its information but please not that this does not work on all computers

Goodluck
