Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook
Hello. You recently gave me advice on using an eraser to clean the contacts on the ram. I did so and there was no difference. So I bought more ram and I am still having the same problem. Do you have any other suggestions on what I could do?
I will try to assist you in defining the root cause of your issue. OK?
This may require you responding to my questions and my answering you back. It may take awhile to nail it down although I'm pretty certain what is the root cause and it has nothing to do with RAM. Sorry you were inadvertently misdirected and you spent more money on RAM you probably didn't need. I'm sure the other tech had the best intentions.
1.) was the new Ram you added recognized? That is to say, did you see a notice that System Memory had changed press F1 to continue after you installed the new Ram module?
2.) I read your original post and when you do get it to work, is that a result of leaving power off for any length of time or swapping Ram modules from one side to another. Or, is there anything else you have done to get it to work, and forgive me here, slaming the cover shut in frustration?
3.) You may need one of two things:
a. A driver update for your graphics display adapter (or did you do that already).
b. the connection from your display to the laptop's mainboard is loose.
Are you ready to start?
