Random Physical memory dumping after installing 256MB PC2700 DDR SODIMM RAM

After I have installed my 256MB PC2700 DDR SODIMM RAM and started up my Inspiron 1000 it ran ok for a while. Until five minutes later a blue screen poped up saying, Physical memory dumping. I didn't get to read the rest but it said something about removing any new hardware that was recently installed. So I just ignored it and thought the computer just glitched or something and turned off the computer. When I turned it back on, it said cannot find sysconfig file. So I took out the Ram and still did the same thing. I could not start my computer up. So I had to use the Windows Xp Home Edition CD and restart the whole system again. The Inpiron 1000 works only when my new Ram is not installed. I have no clue what the problem is, Can anyone help me?

Works only when the new ram is not installed?? There's you answer right there. The memory you installed is either bad or not compatible.

What is the maximum memory capacity for the MX6027 model ?

Hello Marc,

The maximum is 1 GB. Standard, it comes installed with 256 MB but you upgrade with additional 256 MB or 512 MB memory modules. The modules you are looking for are:

256 MB DDR (1 x 256 MB) SODIMM (PC2700) 2.5v SYNC
512 MB DDR (1 x 256 MB) SODIMM (PC2700) 2.5v SYNC

There are lots of places on the web to find decent prices for this memory. I have included a few below.

This document includes instructions for replacing the memory. It's a simple straightforward process.

Hope this helps.

Have a blessed day.

Thanks for using FixYa

According to the maintenance manual only 266Mhz Ram can be added to the notebook.
This would be SDRAM.

Can I upgrade memory to only one gb of memory or install 2 512 mb on a toshiba satellite m35x series

Looking at the specs, the max is 2gb for your Toshiba. According to this website, its only a 256mb ddr sdram. So my guess is you only have 1 slot for the ram. I'd go with a 2gb ram if you can afford it, 1gb just don't cut it in todays technology.

I believe its the PC2700 model, so find a 1gb or 2gb PC2700 @ 333mhz and you should be set.

Memory upgrade

The M45-S169 only has one available memory slot.
(I'm confused about your post that states "M45-S265" in the head line).

  • Configured with 512MB DDR SDRAM (both memory slots may be occupied)
  • 512MB(min)/2048MB (max), 256MB on-board memory with 1 available memory slot for 256MB, 512MB, or 1024MB PC2700 DDR 333MHz SDRAM 2.5V SODIMM memory modules
You can find the complete specifications here.
