Memory First of all, I have to tell you that with this action I'll lose waranty on my computer, but you know, so what?! I woild like to know where is the second memory bank, since the manufacturer clearly says: Memory5 • Configured with 1024MB DDR2 SDRAM (both memory slots may be occupied) • 256MB (Min)/4096MB (Max), 512MB in service-accessible memory slot plus one available user-accessible memory slot for 256MB, 512MB, 1024MB, or 2048MB PC4200 DDR2 533MHz SDRAM or PC5300 DDR2 677MHz SDRAM, dual-channel support requires two memory modules of same capacity and clockspeed I intend to add memory to the both memory slots... Thnx ahead, ppl!

It has two memory modules. the other one is under the keyboard and is actually pretty easy to get to. the plastic piece with the power button in it pops off when you put the screen all the way back. then just unscrew the 3 screws you see under there and your keyboard flips up. presto there is your other memory chip.

That model either has hidden chip inside or has one chip to check it take out the chip that is under memory cover, and than turn your PC on if it says no memory or beeps and do not start than it is only one.

On the bottom of the notebook, there is a cover being held on with a single screw. Remove the cover and viola, there's the RAM. Unfortunately, it appears that only one of the modules is removable.

How to bypass admiastrative pass word


Wow, if it's your computer and you set it, how in the world did you forget it? On a laptop this can be difficult for a ordinary user to get around because you can try to remove Power Cord, Battery and the CMOS battery located on the motherboard and let the laptop sit for an hour or two until it loses all memory of everything. This can be difficult because on most laptops to get to the CMOS battery you'll have to completely disassemble the laptop. Try the guys at http://www.generalsystemsconsulting.com Tell them which operating system and they might can help you.

How to add memory to Toshiba Satellite M110s3094. I know there are 3 or 4 slots but I only see the one with the current memory and I want to add to the existing memory


First of all you need to know the limitation of your the Laptop from its specifications. Know the right type of memory and maximum capacity of your laptop. For your case, I've researched and you may have 2GB maximum on your laptop with 1GB maximum each slot of type DDR2 PC2-5300. Then follow the below instruction.


· Power your laptop down and remove the power cord.Remove the battery.

· Ground yourself using an ESD wrist strap or other method to prevent damage to your computer chips from static electricity.

· Locate the Memory Access door. You'll find this in the detailed specs for your computer retrieved from the Toshiba support site. In most cases, it will be on the underside of your laptop, but some Toshiba models place the RAM under the keyboard.

· Unscrew the screw for the Memory Access door. Place the screw in a small container to avoid losing it. Remove door.

· Remove the memory SODIMMs that you are replacing by gently pressing apart the latches at either end of the module. The RAM module will pop up to a 45 degree angle. Pull it from the slot at that angle.

· Align the new memory module in the slot, matching the notched edge of the RAM with the notch in the slot. Gently push it into place at a 45 degree angle. You won't be able to see the gold pins when it is fully in the slot.

· Gently rotate the module downward until you feel it click into place as the side clips catch the chip.

· Replace the memory access door and screws.

· Replace the battery.

· Power up the computer and check to be sure that the new memory is recognized.

Your computer has memory problems. First check video. If video is working, you'll see an error message. If not, you have a parity error in your first 64K of memory. First check your SIMM's. Reseat them and reboot. If this doesn't do it, the memory chips may be bad. You can try switching the first and second banks memory chips. First banks are the memory banks that your CPU finds its first 64K of base memory in. You'll need to consult your manual to see which bank is first. If all your memory tests good, you probably need to buy another motherboard.

I brought a new hard drive for my laptop .....my computer is not reading it ....I know the hard drive is blank. but how do I load information on it?


Try this.

Plug in the Hard Drive to the computer, then put your Windows disk into the disk drive. You'll also need to enter the BIOS when your computer boots up and set it to boot from your disk. There should be an option that says "Press X to enter Setup" when you turn on your computer. (X being F1, F2, DEL, Etc.)
Once the BIOS's Boot Sequence has been set to boot from your disk drive, reboot the computer. It will eventually tell you to press any key to boot from the DVD. When it boots from the Windows disk, you want to set it to do a Custom Install. There should be an option in there to perform a clean install of Windows. Format the Hard Drive first, then create a new partition and install Windows on that drive. If you have more than one HDD, make sure you don't format the wrong one or you will lose all your data.
If you need additional information, return to this page and I'll be happy to assist you further.

From Microsoft:
Open Event Viewer by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, clicking Administrative Tools, and then double-clicking Event Viewer.

Removing the battery will not make a difference, it wil remove the system clock but he bios runs on non-volatile memory (memory that runs without power so you will not lose the password. Due to security reasons and without legitamate proof, i cannot tell you how to remove the password as the computer may have been stolen. let me know if you have proof, and i will TRY to help you.
