EXTENDING EXIST 2Gb RAM to 4Gb

I have a Toshiba Satellite P200-140 PSPBOE Notebook. I have tried to increase the standard 2Gb RAM to 4Gb by having 2 x 2Gb chips installed at various suppliers, but my Toshiba does not recognise anything more than 2Gb and does not even start up when more than 2Gb is inserted, even after downloading BIOS version 1.7. When viewing specs, it is aparantly upgradable to 4Gb. This has become an urgent problem for me, please assist.

My problem is that my laptop is too slow. OS Home Vista Basic. Memory was upgraded to 1GB. Now I want to upgrade the memory. Can this model be upgraded to 4GB. this means I will install two 2gb. Thanks.


I would suggest you not to install 4GB RAM on windows, keepp it to 2GB.
Use MAC or Linux instead, they have a performance also.
If you want to use 4GB RAM then you will have to switch to 64bit Windows, you should not use 4GB or moree on 32-bit Windows OS.

I want to change the 2 x 512DDR ram by 2x 2GB DDR ram memories in my A205-S4577/Toshiba. Will it work?


hi,
it will work as your notebook is supporting maximum 4 gb RAM but please check that you are using 32 bit operating system or 64 bit one.
If it is 32 bit then the system will be showing 3.2 gb RAM only as this is the 32 bit os limitation.

Toshiba Satellite A215-S7407 ram upgrade


Try to disconnect the new ram you just bought one at the time to see which one is defective. Also, 32 bit operating systems won't detect 4 Gb or ram, but they will show 3 Gb (even though they will use all 4 Gb). To resolve this issue, make sure that if you are using windows Vista to download the latest service pack 1.

Memory upgrade problem


I did some checking on your model laptop and it says that the maximum supported amount of ram is 2gb (2 x 1gb) and so since the slots are made for 1gb max each then thats all they will see even with bigger 2gb chips installed
