Question about Toshiba Satellite M105 Notebook
I've got a Toshiba M105-S322 laptop that freezes at random requiring a soft reboot. Sometimes it'll happen right after boot, sometimes it'll go for hours without a hitch. I'd say it's software related but I'm seeing where the system seems to have trouble consistently seeing the memory, sometimes it'll read 512MB, sometimes it'll see 1GB. I'm going to go ahead and replace the memory, but is there some way to find out if it's the MB before I do so? If it's a bad MB, I'll probably just replace the computer. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
You need to follow some simple steps to boost up your speed. Before using the 3rd party utilities I suggest you to start with windows own utilities. Perform disk clean up,
Start> All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Clean up
Reduce the quantity of startup programs simple type MSCONFIG after open the Run option and enter. uncheck the non essential applications (You can consider non essential all softwares aside hotkey utility and antivirus software). After click on apply and OK restart prompt will appear. "Don't Restart"
Go to My Computer, Right click on C drive and choose "Properties" click the Tools tab and click on the check now button in Disk error checking area. Check both of the boxes when it prompt. And click on OK. It will inform you that system unable to check as its in use therefore it will start when you restart computer. It will perform 5 steps error checking. It might take up to 1 hour.
Once computer start it will be definitely faster. however you have still many ways to choose better performance over some value added features. Like you can choose best performance instead of best appearance at performance settings area. Also you can disable System Restore feature this will increase performance and speed while feature will be not available.
Please post your questions if further assistance needed.

Remove the memory, maybe you can see the capacity of the memory. I guess you have two memory in the laptop 2 -512 mb. sometimes the system recognize to memory and sometimes only one memory can be recognize.
Maybe you can fix it by your self. try to fix well the memory and start the system and see if the two memory was recognize. if not then you should replace either of the two memory or replace it with one 1GB memory capacity.
hope this help.
