Adding memory to Toshiba A75-S211

I need to add 512 MB. How can I go about this? I have no experience in this type of thing. I want to know if I can add an additional 512 MB, or replace what's there with 1GB?

    Thanks for the info, but what I need to know is: can I ADD memory, or do I need to REPLACE what's in there with a larger card?
    Thanks

    HELP, I have the laptop open, and I see the memory. But I do not see the extra slot for additional memory... although I was told that there was an extra slot. Does anyone out there know about the Toshiba A75 S211? Where is that extra memory slot located?

      hi ok i see,
      it would add to the memory that came with the system
      but replace if you had any expansion allready,
      in this case you would add it nothing to replace
      hope that helps?

    I have a toshiba satellite a75-s229 i want to add more hard drive space. how much can i? and what model?


    You can virtually add any amount of hard drive but I would recommend you to keep it low from 512GB. A 320 GB hard drive in my opinion is a very large one and should work out perfectly.
    For the model you can install any company's hard drive until its appropriate to the type you have.
    I personally would recommend SeaGate. I have had a very good experience with them.

    Hope this helps, Please feel free to ask me for further assistance.

    When i try to boot my toshiba a75 laptop i receive a boot last good ... it won't boot i removed memory module i installed 2 yrs ago and it boots ... i purchased new memory module and get same error- it...


    Below are the specs to the type of memory that can be installed in the A75...it is very specific and cannot be anything else then what is listed. You have 512 mb built onto the motherboard, with one expansion slot. That slot can only hold up to 1 gb stick if the BIOS has been upgraded. Go to Toshiba support and make sure the BIOS on the machine is up to date so it will accept the larger stick of ram memory and make sure all the specs are right on the stick that you have.

    Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*

  • Maximum Memory: 1536MB
  • Slots: 1 (1 bank of 1)
  • Standard Memory: 512, 768, or 1024MB (512MB non-removable)
  • USB Support: 2.x Compliant

    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

    You can do either.
    I suggest that if you want to double your memory capacity is to buy another memory module with the same specs and size as the existing one, preferrably from the same manufacturer.
