Equium A60 runs unstable - how can I upgrade the memory?

I have a friend visit me who has an Equium A60 which is very unstable when she runs multiple applications. I checked and it has only 192 MB of RAM. Can be increased and if so how much. How many slots are there on this machine?

She is currently in the USA and I checked on Toshiba USA website and cannot find this PC is listed, so it should only be sold in Europe. It would be useful if someone could tell me what kind of memory it takes so I could look for it here. She is a student and in great need of a stable computer for his studies.

Thanks a lot for all the help in advance.



Of course you can upgrade the memory.
I guess you have only 192 MB memory main because the laptop came with 256 MB internal memory and the 64 MB are shared by the graphics card! This is why only 192 MB are free.

Anyway, as I said the laptop came with 256 MB internal and memory is not removable.
So only one slot is expandable!
If you can upgrade the memory for max 1280MB (256 MB + 1024 MB)

You can use the modules:
PC2700 256 MB (PA3311U - 1 M 25)
PC2700 512 MB (PA3312U - 1 M 51)
1024MO PC2700 (PA3313U-1M1G)

Do you know where is the crack?

The slot is placed at the bottom of the device! The cover is fixed with a screw.
Remove this screw and you will be able to open the slot and improve memory.

PS; I think that upgrading memory is described in the manual of Toshiba that was preinstalled on your laptop.
Alternatively, you can download this manual from the page of Tosh

  • How can I upgrade the bios m5-581tg to 2.11?

    I would spend my M5 BIOS - 581TG Aspire to 1.12 to 2.11, so I can have UEFI full support of windows 10. Right now, I can't start in installing 10 default directly woindows UEFI. the only way to do is to activate the f12 boot menu and select the "unknown DVICE: Windows Boot Manager" which is embarrassing and prevents me from dual-boot easily.

    So I tried to upgrade the BIOS on the official website located here: However, when I download, unzip and run the application, I get the following error. "Please upgrade to the same type of BIOS (version 1.x)" and after I click OK on this error message popup utility closes and I can't upgrade the BIOS.

    How can I do this so that I can have the support of UEFI?

    No, no way.

    the 2.x versions are only M5 with windows 8 plant, yours has windows 7.

    I want to improve it with new ram and graficcard.
    can I use more than 1, 5 GB of ram? later with an update of the bios?
    and if I can change the graficcard? If the answer is Yes... What is the best card I can actually use?
    or is there a map which is almost a geforce 7600 or 6600 (or ati 9700) I can use?

    > I want to upgrade the ram and the new graphics card

    Upgrading RAM is possible but the graphics card is unable to be updated!

    If you want to upgrade the memory you could update to 1536 MB max.
    The A60 supports 512MB internal memory and it is so that one memory slot where the extra RAM module can be inserted.

    These modules are compatible:
    PC2700 512 MB (PA3312U - 1 M 51)
    1024MO PC2700 (PA3313U-1M1G)

    BIOS - how to enter the BIOS?
    Each computer is different, when you turn on the computer, it should tell you what button to push to get into the BIOS. This is usually one of the following values, and you have to push it in the first 5 seconds: F1 F2 F10 F12 ESC LED
    Once in the BIOS find the menu with the remapping of memory, it is different on each computer.

    Check the BIOS settings to see if the memory remapping feature is enabled. Remapping memory access Windows for more memory. You can enable the memory remapping feature in the BIOS by starting the configuration of the system. See the Guide to your computer for instructions on starting the installation of the system on your computer. The name of the memory remapping feature may be different for different hardware vendors.

Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.

  • Tecra R850 - How can I reduce the memory shared graphics card?

    Hi all

    I need help with a few questions:
    My system says I have 2, 66 GB RAM available for applications, services, etc. The rest (between 1.1 and 1.3 GB of RAM) is shared and reserved for the graphics card. I looked for a way to reduce it through the BIOS (how it works normally), tried an update for the bios jumps that he would add this feature. But it wasn't the case.

    I don't understand why Toshiba won't allow its customers to modifity this setting!
    I can understand putting such a context by default, but also giving an option for advanced users to change this setting.

    2, 66 GB RAM are not very good and I often need more than that... 500 MB more of RAM for sys would be really nice.
    And 64 bit OSs don't are currently not supported in our society.

    Does anyone know if a way to reduce the memory shared to 500 MB for example?

    My system features:

    Windows 7 Pro SP1 (32-bit)
    Model: TECRA R850
    SERIALNO. : 7B042670H
    PartNo. : PT525E-03E00KGR

    Thank you in advanced for your answers!


    As far as I know shared memory works automatically and laptop user cannot control it.
    There is nothing new and the same principle is on all Toshiba laptops.

    Sorry but there is nothing to do about it.

  • How can I find the memory just to add to my computer?

    I have a HP Pavilion a1642x dektop PC.  My operating system I have Windows XP.  Maximum capacity is 4 GB.  Installed memory is 1 GB (2 modules of 512 MB).  I searched on the site of HP for the same number of DIMM DDR part I have in my PC but I can't.  The PC is six years old.  Is there a new part number and where I can get it?

    I have a few other questions.  My Information System says:

    Maximum capacity is 4.00 GB

    Installed memory is 1.00 GB

    Has memory 1 GB 512,00

    Location 2 has 512,00 GB

    There are 4 locations in memory, but memory modules are not physically installed in adjacent locations.  My uneducated eyes, looks like they are installed in the Sockets 1 and 3.  But the HP Ugrade and and maintenance Guide says that when adding memory, install the new module in the closest the pre-installed module making.  Then I noticed that 1 and 3 are in blue and 2 and 4 is black.  What is bring her to this?  What is one thing bank address?

    I would spend at least 2 GB of memory.  Everything you need to install two new modules of 512 MB.  Right?  What are my options if I want to move to 4 GB?



    You were right to assume that the memory is installed in the banks of colors.

    This is because memory will operate in DDR mode this way rather than the CSD mode.

    What I would do if I were you, would be to buy 2 x 1 GB of memory and add it in the empty slots and you will have 3 GB of memory.

    If you remove these two 512 circuits and replace those with 2 x 1 GB modules, your BIOS will recognize all the 4 GB but windows will probably recognize only 3.1 to 3.7 GB depending on what hardware is installed in your PC.

    You need an operating system to 64-bit for all 4 GB of memory to be seen and used by Windows.

    Another thing, you might want as your PC can take up to 8 GB memory (4 x 2 GB) with a 64-bit operating system, just buy 2 x 2 GB memory PC2-6400, and although it will not be used, if you ever decide to move to a 64-bit operating system, you will have 5 GB memory ready and waiting.


    Just a thought.

    I run the analysis of Crucial memory tool and let the report type and the amount of memory to install.

    You can buy them or elsewhere. The nice thing about Crucial is that they guarantee compatibility.
