Having trouble with memory upgrade for Toshiba laptop

I have just purchased an extra 1gb Ram for my Toshiba Satellite M50. Prior to making the purchase I found out the lap top currenty uses DDR2 but only 512mb, so the upgrade is also DDR2, SODIMM and I was advised at the store that it would be suitable for my laptop.
I have installed the new Ram and tried booting up but while the power light comes on, nothing more happens. Screen is blank, no usual power up sounds etc. This happens both with the old and new Ram installed (there are two slots in this laptop) and with just the new Ram. I have to put the old Ram back in by itself to use the laptop.
Would this mean I've been sold the wrong product, or is there something else I should be doing?

    Mine is the Satellite M50 -00L003 which the Kingston site suggests DDR2 SODIMM for.

I don't see anything about DDR2 I do see DDR SODIMM.

Kingston ( a company owned by Toshiba) has the specs you need for your pc. Here is the link:

    I only based the informtion of the model number in which was M55-S135. If it's differnent next time please put it your commenet box.



    Anyways that site should help you out with the information you need.



    I had this happen on my Toshiba and eventually it worked. You might want to bring you notebook and memory back to the store you bought it from and see if they can take a look at it.

Hello, I have a Satellite A15 @129 w/756 MB RAM. I'd like to upgrade but don't know the maximum RAM stick each slot will take and don't remember if there are 2 slots or 4. Thanks, RD


The maximum RAM for this laptop can up to 1 GB DDR1 266MHz RAM and 2 memory slot available, so since u have already 756 MB RAM in your laptop, that mean 1 of your RAM stick is 512MB and another 1 is 256MB, so if u need to upgrade, u have to replace the 256MB with 512MB to make it 1GB maximum.

Can I upgrade memory to only one gb of memory or install 2 512 mb on a toshiba satellite m35x series


http://www.shopping.com/xPF-Toshiba-Toshiba-Satellite-Notebook-PC-M35X-S114

Looking at the specs, the max is 2gb for your Toshiba. According to this website, its only a 256mb ddr sdram. So my guess is you only have 1 slot for the ram. I'd go with a 2gb ram if you can afford it, 1gb just don't cut it in todays technology.

I believe its the PC2700 model, so find a 1gb or 2gb PC2700 @ 333mhz and you should be set.

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
