I had this exact same problem and took the entire system apart and tested each system piece. Couldn't find any hardware problems but as soon as I updated the bios from the toshiba support site, the system worked good as new. Not sure how the bios was causing this, but it did fix it!

My Toshiba Satellite A205 S5000 came with 2 Ram memory chips of 1GB each. The OS is Windows 7 with 32-bits. Can I upgrade the memory to 4 GB by inserting 2 memory chips of 2GB each?


Hi Lewis

yes you can

here is the link but is cheaper if you just write down the exact numbers from the website and buy in computer warehouse or shop.
http://www.crucial.com/uk/upgrade/Toshiba-memory/Satellite+A205+Series/Satellite+A205-S5000-upgrades.html

but don't forgot to clean your laptop airflow with air duster every month with this you prevent the dust clogging up.
blocked airflow lead to owerheating
and heat differential is not good especially on lead free compound because the composite of welding material contain
silver and aluminium these metals hate each other both has different friction and heat transfer.
lead is more efficient but by eu law is not permitted any more.
if you want to run fast tasks you should go for pc laptop has modified core voltage is slower than computer
and all the high spec numbers are to attract customers to spend money.

How do I upgrade my bios for toshiba laptop ?


Why do you want to update the BIOS of your laptop? Be careful about updating your BIOS because it might cause your computer to crash.

Or are you trying to update the drivers in your computer?

If you are having some issues with its performance, then you need to update all the outdated drivers in your computer. I know that it's a total headache if you do the update manually but don't worry because there are Automatic PC Updater like RadarSync. It will scan and update all outdated drivers in your computer.

I hope this helps!
