Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 Notebook
Have a toshiba a135-s2276 that crashed, was originally loaded with vista, am now trying to format and install with win 98, then upgrade to xp pro, but computer stops formatting and says "line a20 error". Toshiba tech support says memory failure, but the memory is literally 5 minutes old, just upgraded from 512k to 2gb. any ideas on how to get this drive to format so I can start loading windows again?
Wow - at this point, call Toshiba anyways, if it has to go in for anything, they have a pretty fast turn around time since they outsourced their repair center to America now. It should not freeze, could be as simple as a stick of bad ram at this point into the troubleshooting. Could also be anything from a CMOS battery too.

Memory is most likely not bad and Toshiba has a pretty good quality control on their laptops. Format it with the XP CD using the compatible but classic FAT 32 format then try installing 98 again. Possible that Win 98 doesn't know how to read that new of memory right in the format part of the installer. If it has a SATA hard drive, you might run into some trouble with SATA support when formatting down the road.

It is possible that the memory itself is bad. Did you purchase it from a store or individual?
