Memory upgrade question

I bought 2 gb of centon pc2-5300 laptop ram from CompUSA yesterday for my toshiba satellite A135 yesterday. Tech said it would clock down to replace the pc2-4200 ram. System worked fine for 4 hrs then crashed. Memory test says contact manufacture of ram. CompUSA is going out of business and won't replace it, Centon tech support is closed.

Is this just my Karma?

Yes that RAM should work fine even at the slower speed.

I have had terrible luck with Centon ram - I don't know why but they seem to have more failed chips than most brands.

If Compusa wont replace it see if they will refund you. Otherwise wait until Centon is open and at least you can warrantee it. See if they can swap for PC2-4200 to make sure of compatibility.

Worse case you can get Crucial (micron) RAM which almost always works at good prices from www.newegg.com or directly from www.crucial.com

How to replace CD?DVD IN A135-S4467


It's very easy. First turn the laptop off with the DVD bay open. You will have to unscrew the memory ram cover, and pull it.
Afterwards you take a look at the screw that's on the left of the ram's compartiment. See this picture:

If you look close to the ram compartment you will see a screw on the left side. Unscrew it and that's it. You will only have to pull the dvd rom firmly outside the laptop-you can pull it from the bay, that why I've told you to let it open.

Ram upgradation


The system uses shared video memory, so it will always show less memory than actually installed.
It's a good machine, but needs all memory it can get for Vista.
Good luck

Upgrading Ram on my Toshiba A135 S2386 Laptop, still under warrantly


Hi there. There are 2 locations on the border of the plastic cover, both on the same side. You need to use a small flat screwdriver or your nail, and lift the cover using those 2 spots. It will snap out of place ! If you hold the laptop upside down, the front of the laptop closest to you, the 2 places where u need to lift are on the right side. You need to lift on that side, and the plastic latches are on the left side only. Hope you see what i mean ! But basically, lift right side. Thanks ! cheebster.
