Question about Toshiba Satellite A105-S1712 Notebook
Trying to upgrade satellite a105-s1712 memory but it won't accept the 1gb chips just turns on and off when try to boot but can put 2 512mb chips in and boots fine
Looked for an bios update cant find one for this model
pc is supposed to have a max of 2gb memory
I have the same issue with my laptop. I have not been able to get the laptop to accept 2gb of memory yet, but I did find something that works. If you put your 512mb memory that works in the laptop and then add a 1gb stick in the second slot it works. Or at least it did for me. It's better than nothing. I am still trying to figure out how to get it up to the 2gb max. Will add a solution if I figure it out.

Hey, I actually found out the problem after doing some reasearch. You probably saved money on your 2g cards. They are not fully compatible even though the vendors claim that they are. If you get your memory from the maker of your laptop you will not have an issue. Kingston is also a safe choice. All these OEM cards seem to have problems. There is tons of people with the same problem. I never bothered to re-order and go though the whole RMA process. I think 1.5 g is not all that much slower than 2g. But for the next laptop (dell) i order the upgrade kit from dell and had no issues.
