Question about Toshiba Tecra A6 Notebook

1 Answer

Memory Install The Tecra says that it has two memory slots, and is upgradeable to 2gb RAM. The Main memory slot is behind the keyboard, but no manual says how to get to it, or if that slot is avaiable for bigger (1gb) memory. Any help please, Thanks Ian

You can usually find manuals for gaining access to the Ram slots, but I have opened up a Tecra before. Though not exactly the same model. you have to remove the plastic strip along the top of the keyboard (under the screen). Most of these pop up with SLIGHT pressure from a screwdriver but be careful, it may have one or more screws in the bottom of the laptop. Turn it over and look for any deep holes that might have screws that screw into the plastic strip on the top. Once you have the strip off, you can usually see easily how to remove the keyboard.

these different ram slots have different bus speed so they really don't work if you are using them both at once.

Please check your laptop's documentation about the speeds of these ram slots.

The T42 can support up to 2 Gb of RAM.
The laptop comes with 512Mb of RAM under the keyboard and a spare memory slot on the bottom of the laptop.
To install 2Gb of RAM put 1Gb in the memory slot under the kerboard - need to remove the old RAM and put the other 1Gb in the memory on the bottom of the laptop

IBM ThinkPad T40 2GB Max RAM

The T40 has two ram slots, you can put a 1g chip in each totaling 2g. If the chip will remove, then it is changeable. Vista needs a minimum of 256 to run, so, when you change BOTH chips to equal 2g it will probably read 1.744g, or it may read the full 2g. If it only reads 1g, then the second slot under keyboard may have malfunctioned. It could also be that the 256 chip is bad and your really only running 512 now. With all that said, in order to achieve 2g, you will need to put a 1g chip in each slot.
