Upgrading Ram on my Toshiba A135 S2386 Laptop, still under warrantly

I recently bought a Toshiba Laptop from Best Buy. I alo bought an additional 1 GB of Ram ( same specification) from New Egg. However while trying to install the ram, I could not open the ram cover at the back of the laptop. I was ableto unscrew the cover, but it seems to be stuck with a couple of plastc latches on both side of the cover and I was could not remove it with reasonable force. Please suggest, how to replace the ram. and does it affect warrantly in any way.

Hi there. There are 2 locations on the border of the plastic cover, both on the same side. You need to use a small flat screwdriver or your nail, and lift the cover using those 2 spots. It will snap out of place ! If you hold the laptop upside down, the front of the laptop closest to you, the 2 places where u need to lift are on the right side. You need to lift on that side, and the plastic latches are on the left side only. Hope you see what i mean ! But basically, lift right side. Thanks ! cheebster.

There's nothing appear on my Toshiba Satellite A135-S2386 monitor

Hi There , it might be a Ram issue, reseat your RAM module's if that still doesn't work, remove your Hard Drive, start up your machine, and see if anything gets displayed on the screen, if your can see something on the screen, then I would suggest you get you motherboards tested, cause that would cause it to do that

Good Luck

Toshiba Locks up

The reason your laptop is rebooting is due to a faulty RAM memory card. Replace your Ram Card(s) and all should be fine. Toshiba's are common for faulting due to damaged sectors in the ram cards

Toshiba laptop problem

The right memory for your laptop is

256MB Memory (PC2-4200) KTT533D2/256, PA3389U-2M25 KTOS534

512MB Memory (PC2-4200) KTT533D2/512, PA3412U-1M51, PA3412U-2M51 KTOS535

1GB Memory (PC2-4200) KTT533D2/1G, PA3411U-2M1G KTOS536

Using the wrong memory can caused motherboard failure.

Try reinserting the old one memory module.
Be sure that the memory is placed in the right way

Wi-fi ability lost with RAM upgrade

Hi,

It is possible that the WiFi card was dislodged or inadvertently snap out of position. Should you venture on a DIY, pls remove the bottom panel covering the memory and/or add-on cards. The WiFi card would be the one with one or two black or gray small cable/wire with connectors at the end. Unsnap the said WiFi card, partially remove/pull from the slot, re-insert and snap back. It may be necessary to wiggle a little bit to ensure that the pins are in contact with the corresponding slot pins. Thereafter, close the lid/panel cover and reboot the laptop.

Should problem persist, you may need to return the unit to whoever replaced the memory and present your concern.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
