Hello, looks like your friend either installed the wrong module or inserted it incorrectly. A computer system runs a short hardware self-test before loading the software and if it gets stuck within the check(because of the memory module) it won't power up. Remove the memory module(see the smaller of the two covers at the machine's back, unscrew and remove the module)
power up, now the system at least should boot up but will run veeery slow(due to unsufficient RAM-memory).

Good luck

RAM upgrade


(1) flip the Notebook/Laptop PC over - see Fig.1 below
(2) find the memory cover - it really easy to find in this photo.

Fig.1 Toshiba M35X bottom view - the memory cover is seen at center left and secured by a single screw.

(3) remove the (1) screw securing the memory cover.

12_5_2011_7_42_34_am.jpg

Fig. 2 Toshiba M35X laptop shown with memory cover removed and HDD (Hard Disk Drive) removed, and with the HDD cover flipped up.
The RAM (SO-DIMM boards) are visible at center left.
The HDD cover is seen at the bottom of the photo.

(4) Using proper anti-static/static control techniques, clip alligator clip or your anti-static wrist strap to a frame ground of the laptop at an I/O connector or frame ground under the HDD cover.
(5) carefully remove (2) old 256 MB SO-DIMM DDR333 memory modules.
Store old memory boards in the anti-static plastic baggie in which the new memory boards were shipped.
(6) install (2) new 1GB SO-DIMM DDR333 boards, for total of 2GB of system RAM.
(7) reassemble system, and boot OS (operating system).
The laptop's ROM BIOS will auto-detect the new RAM and begin a standard POST (Power-On Self Test).
(8) If OS is MSWindows, it will also auto-detect the new memory, and allocate it to application software.

The technology of the Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 memory module is called
DDR333, meaning DDR (Double Data Rate) SDRAM (Synchronous Dynamic RAM), at a memory bus speed of 333 MHz.
The Form Factor of the DDR memory card is SO-DIMM, which stands for Small Outline DIMM (Dual In-line Memory Module) (see photo).

12_5_2011_8_13_41_am.jpg

Fig.3 Each 1GB SO-DIMM DDR333 memory module will look like this one.
The Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 supports a maximum of two SO-DIMM memory modules.

Each memory module can hold (a) 256MB, (b) 512MB, or (c) 1GB,
in the SO-DIMM Form Factor compatible with the Toshiba M35X-S349 Notebook PC.

I want to upgrade the RAM of Toshiba Satellite PS240U-00UMRX . What maximum RAM I can put? Can I put 1 GB?


Nah. The max RAM for this model is 512MB (256MBx 2) - uses PC2100 or PC2700 memory. This model will not recognize anything beyond a 256MB module.

My friends laptop is beeping constantly and the screen won't show anything.


was new memory just installed? If so check if you have to correct memory for the make and model of the computer. resitting (ie. take the memory out and put it back it) the memory module can also fix something like this.

A friend of mine gave me his laptop to see what was wrong with it... It powers up but the screen stays blank and the cd/dvd drive light comes on and stays on. The drive wont open. And the fan wont turn on....


Hi, sounds like his friend has put the wrong memory chip in this machine. I would put the old memory chip back in, and then check with the Toshiba website for the correct upgrade.
Come back to me if you need more help

I can't locate were you install the memory modules


You can purchase 1GB ram sticks for them...need to shop around.

Access the ram slots by switching laptop off / remove battery / depress on / off switch several X to de-enrgise system. Turn laptop upside down and remove one of the small panels...be carefull you do not lose screws. Very carefully unclip ram stick / lift up and out.

I need to increase the ram in my toshiba sattelite 160 laptop I only have a half gig I heard that the memory is fixed on the laptop and might have to replace mother board


Your laptop comes with a memory module that is soldered onto the motherboard and is non-removeable. You have one slot where you can change out the memory module. You are capable of putting one (1) GB module in that slot. Below is the specs for that memory module.

  • Maximum Memory: 1280MB
  • Slots: 1 (1 bank of 1)
  • Standard Memory: 256, 512, or 768MB (256MB non-removable)
  • USB Support: 2.x Compliant

  • DDR PC2700

    Take the memory module back out and reboot and see if the laptop boots. You may have gotten either a bad memory module or it is incompatible with your system.
