Toshiba M50 additional memory

I want to replace the existing 512kb memory with two 1GB modules. Can this be done?

I have removed the memory cover as per the manual but the existing module will not come out. Is there a trick to this? I don't want to force it.

Hi friend,
first you have to know it's not the 512 kb it is an 512 MB. If it is the laptop there may be the two slots in the corner of the slot you see the knob press it slidely the knob on the both side after remove as the same process to put new ram on the slot but before that see please check if your computer or the laptop is supports the 2GB ram . you can see the manual of the laptop or search the web or ask the shop where you buy the laptop. these are steps for ram. try it , and if problem comes again ,please inform to fixya.com

RAM upgrade


(1) flip the Notebook/Laptop PC over - see Fig.1 below
(2) find the memory cover - it really easy to find in this photo.

Fig.1 Toshiba M35X bottom view - the memory cover is seen at center left and secured by a single screw.

(3) remove the (1) screw securing the memory cover.

12_5_2011_7_42_34_am.jpg

Fig. 2 Toshiba M35X laptop shown with memory cover removed and HDD (Hard Disk Drive) removed, and with the HDD cover flipped up.
The RAM (SO-DIMM boards) are visible at center left.
The HDD cover is seen at the bottom of the photo.

(4) Using proper anti-static/static control techniques, clip alligator clip or your anti-static wrist strap to a frame ground of the laptop at an I/O connector or frame ground under the HDD cover.
(5) carefully remove (2) old 256 MB SO-DIMM DDR333 memory modules.
Store old memory boards in the anti-static plastic baggie in which the new memory boards were shipped.
(6) install (2) new 1GB SO-DIMM DDR333 boards, for total of 2GB of system RAM.
(7) reassemble system, and boot OS (operating system).
The laptop's ROM BIOS will auto-detect the new RAM and begin a standard POST (Power-On Self Test).
(8) If OS is MSWindows, it will also auto-detect the new memory, and allocate it to application software.

The technology of the Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 memory module is called
DDR333, meaning DDR (Double Data Rate) SDRAM (Synchronous Dynamic RAM), at a memory bus speed of 333 MHz.
The Form Factor of the DDR memory card is SO-DIMM, which stands for Small Outline DIMM (Dual In-line Memory Module) (see photo).
Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR_SDRAM
Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SO-DIMM

12_5_2011_8_13_41_am.jpg

Fig.3 Each 1GB SO-DIMM DDR333 memory module will look like this one.
The Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 supports a maximum of two SO-DIMM memory modules.

Each memory module can hold (a) 256MB, (b) 512MB, or (c) 1GB,
in the SO-DIMM Form Factor compatible with the Toshiba M35X-S349 Notebook PC.

I have a compaq presario cq60-215dx notebook pc, was wondering how do i go about upgrading the RAM?


I have checked the Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX Specification It Originally has 2GB Memory and supports upto 4GB RAM max. If you intend to upgrade the RAM, you can buy additional RAM and put them in you system. Here is the HP Guide to Replace RAM and How to Upgrade RAM Guide
Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX has two RAM slots for DDR-2 (533 or 667) Memory Modules. First you have to check that the RAM slot is available for additional RAM. I believe that it has two modules of 1GB each in both slots. So, you have to get two modules of RAM 2GB each to upgrade to 4GB (or one 2GB RAM module to upgrade to 3GB). Hence, it is recommended that you get 2GB replacement module for each 1GB module you have on you system from local laptop repair/ service center, which would be cost effective as existing 1GB RAM Modules would be useless for you upon upgrade.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

Can I access the memory module under the keyboard to upgrade with a 1GB memory module on my Toshiba M55 3293 Laptop?

The link above has a picture of where the memory cover is on the bottom it is basically right in the middle. Once you remove the screw then you can install/upgrade the ram. You can use this video as a guide as to how it is done.

Also make sure you have the correct/compatible ram for your laptop.
If you have any other questions let me know.
Thank you,

Adding memory to a a75-s211


How much memory did it have before you removed the 256Mb RAM?
If it had 756Mb RAM then the memory in the laptop has 512 Mb plus 256 Mb RAM modules, the 256Mb in the slot you can see and possibly 512Mb in a slot under the keyboard or soldered on the motherboard.
Therefore by removing the 256Mb and replacing with 1Gb memory module will give you a total of 1.5Gb

How to install additional toshiba a65 s1762 memory


Yes, you need to flip your laptop over and look for a removable compartment that requires you to unscrew a screw. Once you get the cover removed, you will see slots with either one or two memory modules installed. If one is installed, then you can add the additional memory module in the empty slot. If you have 2 already installed, then you will need to remove one and install your new module, which would only give you a total of 768 megs. Just slip the new memory in and press it down towards the motherboard and start your laptop..

connected.

4 Turn the computer upside down.

5 Locate and remove the screws that hold the cover plate in
place, then remove the cover from the bay.

CAUTION: Static electricity can damage the memory module.
Before you handle the module, touch a grounded metal
surface to discharge any static electricity you may have built

touch its pin connector on the side you insert into the
computer.

6 Remove the new memory module from its antistatic
packaging.

7 Insert the memory module in the slot and gently press it down
into place.

The clips on either side of the module will click to secure the
