Why does Toshiba satellite a10-S177 have 1gb ram limit? Motherboard? BIOS? Or just that 1GB SODIMMs weren't invented yet?


Motherboard

More specifically the motherboard chipset.

The motherboard chipset is the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.
{In reference to the motherboard chipset technology used for this laptop}

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.

The Northbridge chip determines what Processors can be used, what Ram Memory can be used, (Plus the amount), and High-speed graphics.

AGP and PCI Express being High-speed graphics.

A graphics card inserted into a PCI expansion slot is not High-speed graphics.
Neither is Integrated Graphics.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.

{CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short}

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg


The motherboard chipset for the Toshiba Satellite A10 series of Notebook PC's, is an
Intel 852GMV.
The maximum amount of ram memory supported is 1GB.

How do I remove the hard drive in Toshiba SatellitePro A10 EN? (Removing the plastic cover exposes only the end of the hard drive. I'm reluctant to just start pulling on it!


  • The original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD is fitted into a Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive cradle - Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD caddy.

      • Gently remove the cradle from the laptop, yes pull on it
      • Unscrew the original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive & remove it from the cradle.
      • Screw the new Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive into the cradle & refit the cradle into the laptop.
      • Re-install XP or Vista

          Hi,

          Here is the general driver download site. http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp I clicked Laptops, Satellite Pro, and looked for your model. I did not see it listed. If you could identify which model it is, I can help you further.

          Thanks

          I think you might need to check the Satellite family instead of Satellite pro to find the A10

          Does my laptop have wireless internet??


          Basically they don't. They can be purchased and easily installed by opening the cover that contains it and inserting it just like inserting memory and then connecting the white and grey wires to the wireless card.

          Toshiba satellite pro m15 s405 video card replacement


          Probably impossible. Most laptop graphics chips are soldered directly to the motherboard requiring a new motherboard if one dies, and very few are actual "cards." That being said, it looks like your's is a nVIDIA GeForce4 420 Go which might be a card. I'll do some research and find out.

          I could be wrong, but most laptops have all the peripherals intergraded into the motherboard in order to get such a slim profile all on one board. The sound card, video card, network card, and all are non removable and non replaceable. When it comes time to upgrade, then you'll have to start looking for another laptop. Sometimes though, Toshiba will have driver upgrades on their website for new features and fixes.

          I need to replace my hard disk notebook with a bigger capacity hdd


          Toshiba is rather secretive with their documentation. It is hard to find. Google TOSHIBA SATELLITE A10 SERVICE MANUAL and check the available offerings.

          You now have a 5400 RPM, ATA 100 drive. You should not have any drive size restrictions. Shops are advertising many large drives as compatible.

          I suggest that you purchase only a 7200 RPM drive. The faster speed will perk your machine right up.

          I have not worked on Toshiba machines but suggest you have all restore disks and passwords at hand.

          Can I upgrade to a Graphics card?


          Only high-end gaming laptops from manufacturers such as Alienware are capable of upgrading their graphics cards.

          This model is not capable of doing so. Sorry.

          Also, do not leave me a poor rating simply for the fact that this is not the answer you wanted to hear, please.

          Thanks.
