I added 2G of RAM to my Toshiba Satellite A 135-S2246 model. (did it myself) Now I have problems booting up. It usually takes 3-4 tries, once I am at my main screen and all of my desktop items have loaded, it operates smoothly and doesn't crash. It just seems to dislike booting up.

Re: Boot up problems.
Sometimes new RAM and old RAM develop some kind of compatibility issue due to slight variations in them.... it is something like the system gets accustomed to what it was before and refuse to adapt properly to change...

Computer does not boot upThe problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needsreseating to make proper electrical contact. Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up thenremove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop andget them to test the RAM for you.
If you don't know the password to the BIOS - you're screwed. There's absolutely no way to recover it back. You may take it to a computer repair shop or Toshiba Repair place and let them reset the BIOS Password.
Could you please go online and in a search engine type "MAX RAM E-Machines (here put your model #)." Pick a link that secribes your maxi,um ram and if it's only 2GB you'll have your answer. If the max is higher there should be instructions on how to set the computer to acess and show the RAM.
Sounds like one of two options, it's either a blown out back light or you have a graphics problem. If it's the back light, you should still hear windows boot up and no picture. Try one of two things. Either hook it up to a external monitor or try a flashlight and see if you can see any images when you shine it across the screen.
My a135 would not boot at all, Removed drive, ram, wifi card, and it at least had some video.
Put the ram back in, and it actually tried to boot, put the drive in, andforced it to boot normal (menu gives a choice) and works great.
Then, I updated the bios. They have 7 revisions to the bios for that machine.
First of All Usual meaning of crash related to Operating System which is Software. If you are talking about the Operating system Crash its not something to worry. Most effective way is to perform full system recovery by Using Toshiba Recovery and Applications DVD which comes together. When you put the disk in and restart by pressing F12 boot option will appear when you choose CD/DVD a menu will appear. With that menu you can perform windows system restore also Toshiba full system recovery (it will set everything to factory default).
