Hi,
The reason that XP is only recognizing 3GB of memory is because the operating system is 32bit (X86), what you need for the OS to recognize 4GB is a 64bit (X64) system, does your laptop support 64bit? if it does then get a 64bit install disk, install that and your system will be able to use the full capacity of the 4GB memory installed.

    You need to look at what processes are running in the background and when the PC starts up.
    Click on the start menu and in the run box type msconfig, this will bring up the system configuration utility, if you click on the start up tab you can look down the list and disable certain processes from starting up which after a restart will make the system run a little faster.


    Good luck

I had the same problem with my Dell inspiron 1525. The solution I used was to download the latest xp driver for the motherboard from the manufacture, then flashed the BIOS. Now my 32bit machine with xp pro shows 3.56gb ram

First of, Windows XP 32 bits can't use more than 3Gg (very close to the 2.87 you mention)
If the problem appears after you install specific drivers, you can Rollback those drivers to its previous condition, and you can pinpoint what is causing the slow performance.

Hi,
With the Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907 Laptop, you can put a 500GB hard drive and up to 2 TB hard drive. The only requirements are to make sure it has a SATA connector and is 2.5" Size. These are very common and easily found online. For example, here a 500GB one that is compatible that I found: Click Here.

Cd drive error for toshiba L305


On the bottom side of the laptop, you should find a little screw near the drive possibly labeled (css). Remove that one and try to gently remove the drive. Some laptops have a little slide lever that if you move it to the other side, a little tab will come out and you can pull out the drive with this tab.
