Question about Toshiba Satellite A65-S126 Notebook

1 Answer

Only showing 64mb of ram instead of 256

This laptop has been passed down so many times. There are hard drive, screen, and battery problems.

My brother stopped using it because of how slow it was, then the battery died, I brought it back to life by leaving it plugged in with no battery.

I want to use it as a linux machine, but in trying to find out why it was so slow I discovered it is only registering 64 megs of ram for some reason.

Anyone know the solution to this problem?

My system has a ddr 256 MB but it shows 192 mb only. what is the reason and solution plz


Hi,

Your graphics card is sharing your system memory.

This means that you physically have 256 MB of Ram in you laptop, but the operating system can only use 192 MB of Ram because 64MB of Ram is dedicated to your on-board graphics.

Hope this answers your question!
Please remember to let me know if this information was useful!

Update 4090 xcdt


Yes, you can upgrade from Win98 to WinXP. The minimum hard drive requirements for WinXP is 1.5GB and the minimum RAM requirement is 64MB. You will also need a CD ROM for the install. Now those are the minimum requirements so don't expect it to go very fast. If possible I would recommend you upgrade to Win2000. WinXP and Win2000 are almost identical. The minimum hard drive for Win2000 is 650MB and for RAM it is 64MB. So you could still use your 4GB hard drive and have plenty of room. You will need a CD ROM for the Win2000 also.
Good luck if you have anymore questons let me know,

You might have damaged the CPU/ motherboard during the process of overclocking.

Check your CPU on other compatible mobo.

Check your mobo documentation properly & set the jumpers rightly. If that doesn't help, you will have to replace the mobo.

I would NOT recomment upgrading anything other than RAM and Hard drives on a laptop. It's very expensive, and can't always be done. If you want a gaming computer I'd recommend a desktop computer, as you will get a lot more "umph" for a lot less buck.

Same goes for upgrades. It's easy and fairly cheap (unless you want to have the absolute top knotch parts all the time) with a desktop because so many can use the same parts. Lots of laptops have "their own kind" of parts, which makes them expensive.

Keep the laptop for portability whenever you need your computer with you.
