I want to install memory in the 2nd of 2 memory banks on this laptop, The 2nd memory bank is located under the keyboard I am told and that there are three tabs at the top of the keyboard securing it in position. I have been unable to locate these and cannot release the keyboard. Has anyone any ideas please? Richard
I have a medion 41060 and the way I accessed the memory under the keyboard was as follows: Remove the battery and power supply lead for safety, slide the panel with the start button and hot buttons above the keyboard to the left very carefully. As it is plastic and very delicate it should not be forced. Under this panel are three black screws which hold the keyboard in place. Remove the screws and lift the keyboard from the top edge. The memory is below a dished panel held by three screws. You might aswell suck out the dust from your cooler fan before you replace the keyboard. Everything goes back in reverse order, but be very careful with the top panel as the lugs to it are very delicate.
I hope that I have helped,

Hey, as far as my knowledge is concerned, the battery compartment is on the backside of laptop and there is a symbol on that compartment. you just need a screw driver to open two screws and reach the RAM compartment.

Unplug the laptop from the power supply. Remove the battery. Locate your user manual (hard copy or printed from the internet for your laptop's make and model). Now, open the bottom of the laptop, locate the memory bank and follow instructions for memory installation provided by your laptop manufacturer in the user manual.
2 Short Beeps 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. 3 Short Beeps Basically the same thing as 2 beeps. Follow that diagnosis above.

Yes, you can use the 1 bank and get higher graded memory, another 512 in the 1 bank would make 1gig, you can probable get as much as 2 gig in the bank to make a total of 2.5 gigs by buying a 2 gig memory stick.
The Toshiba Satellite A45-S150 has 2 bank(s) which have 1 socket(s) in each bank for a total of 2 memory socket(s). This means the Satellite A45-S150 can support up to 2 individual RAM modules. Look on bottom of laptop and there will be place to take screw out and you will see the 2 modulars.
Below is a visual representation of the memory bank(s) and socket(s) configuration for the Toshiba Satellite A45-S150.
