I want to upgrade the RAM on Satellite 1400-253

I want to get more ram to a Satellite 1400-253 s but crucial tell me that they can not guarantee compatibility because there is no updated BIOS meet the new jedec standards.
Should I be waiting for an update of the Bios or try to find the old memory compatible, or is this model too old now?


I found some info on this unit and hope this will help you. According to the specs of this device comes with 128 MB of RAM and can be updated up to 1024 MB. Memory compatible with this camera modules are:

PC133 512 MB (PA3108U - 1 M 51)
PC133 256 MB (PA3086U - 1 M 25)
PC133 128 MB (PA3085U - 1 M 12)

Check how many modules of 512 MB of costs. If they are not expensive, you can buy two of them and the use of RAM max. In this case your device will work much, much faster.

  • I want to upgrade the RAM in my Acer Aspire 5736z-4826.

    I want to upgrade the RAM in my Acer Aspire 5736z-4826. I've seen different specifications on the laptop. Some people say that it can hold 8 GB of RAM and some say 4GB. I don't know the exact type of RAM that works. I ordered 2x2gb RAM PC3-12800 DDR3 of Crucial, and he was not compatible and caused the screen doesn't Flash at max resolution. I think the problem is, it should be PC - 8500 DDR3 RAM. Can someone please give me some information since there is NO information on the web on this particular laptop. Thank you.

    I don't have the model of your computer, but sometimes when there's confusion about what memory, people use Speccy or CPU - Z or HWinfo to determine what memory is currently installed.

  • Re: Satellite Pro A300D-161 - I want to upgrade the RAM to 4 GB

    Hello, I want to upgrade my RAM from 2 GB to 4 GB.

    The laptop box, said the other: 2 GB DDR2 800 Mhz, but when I check the CPU - Z it says 400 Mhz


    The website of toshiba says also 800 Mhz, so wich 1 I need to buy?
    1 x 2 GB DDR2 - 400 Mhz
    2 x 2 GB DDR2 - 800 Mhz

    Also, I wonder when I switch to 4 GB, the amount of memory will be dedicated to my video card?

    Thank you


    CPU - Z is definitely wrong! Satellite Pro A300D-161 needs DDR2-800 MHz to upgrade according to the specs on the Toshiba site.
    If the information on the laptop box is correct.

    More video RAM will be assigned automatically and with 4 GB of RAM you will get more memory video too.

  • Satellite L40 - 139 - I want to upgrade the RAM

    My laptop is Toshiba Satellite L40 - 139 PSL40E model, operating system Windows XP SP3, 1 024 DDR2 RAM (667 MHz) (512 + 512).

    I want to increase the RAM memory using 2048 DDR2 RAM (1024 + 1024).

    Laptop manual can not find if support * _dual-channel memory_ *, which requires a dual-channel-capable motherboard. Theoretically, this technology double data rate of the memory.
    Someone has the manual for this laptop motheboard, or may indicate the site for download?

    Apologies for my bad English.
    Thank you.


    Satellite L40-139 can be upgraded to 2 GB of RAM. You can buy two modules with 1 GB of capacity with the specifications of DDR2 at 667 MHz.
    If you use two modules, they run in dual channel mode.

    The manual of the motherboard or repair for Toshiba laptops cannot be downloaded. They are only available if ASP.

  • Satellite Pro A120 - I want to upgrade the RAM


    I'm looking to upgrade the RAM in my Satellite Pro A120 Model No.: PSAC1E-05C00VEN

    I'm getting conflicting reports as to how this can actually take, some sites say a 1 GB maximum per slot max so 2 GB while most of the others say max 2 GB per slot

    I was hoping you could advise me.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.


    Your Satellite Pro A120 is equipped with the Intel 945 GM chipset and so you can upgrade it to 4 GB of RAM.
    Only models with ATI chipset can be upgraded to 2 GB and I think this is the reason why some sites say that it can be upgraded to 2 GB and others at 4 GB.

    However, for the upgrade of RAM DDR2-RAM PC2-5300 (DDR2-677). You can buy 2 GB modules for a maximum of 4 GB.
    But don t forget that only a 64 bit OS supports 4 GB of RAM.

  • Maximum RAM in a DV7 7205tx? I want to upgrade the RAM in my DV7-7205tx 8 GB to 16GB.

    Hi, I would like to upgrade the RAM in my DV7-7205tx 8 GB to 16GB, but the specifications say that the maximum is 8 GB. I am intrigued by what the DV7-7304tx has been released with 16 GB installed and it has the same processor and the same chipset. Can you please explain why the manual tells me that I can't spend my 2x4gb chips to 2x8GB?

    Much appreciated,

    The OP needs to open the memory Bay and check whether 1 or 2 modules of memory are installed and that the part (s) was/is. If a single p/n 670034-001 is installed, the system should have no problem taking another module of 8 GB, the maximum of the motherboard is rated to 16 GB. If two p/n 641369-001 modules are installed, something is fishy, as it departs the HP part Surfer information.

  • Satellite A200-1TW - I want to upgrade the RAM

    I think to upgrade my RAM from 2 GB to 3 or 4 gig.
    I know that 32-bit windows recognizes only 3 gig of max, but I was wondering if it would be better to install 2x2g then 1 x 2 GB and 1 x 1 GB?
    Another question I have:
    I opened my laptop to see what was inside this time, and it seemed that she had 2 parts of ram inside (photo: http://i44.tinypic.com/xojyhw.jpg)
    . So I was wondering, is this 2 x 1 gig? Or one of them is just a fake to fill the slots?

    So in short: do I have to purchase a 1 gig or a 2 gig RAM, and I have to remove the one that is installed in order to install the new one (2 gigabytes)?

    It s not a fake both modules with 2 GB (2 x 1 GB).

    Your Satellite A200 can be upgraded to 4 GB of RAM. You can buy 2 x 2 GB RAM DDR2-667 for laptops.
    But don t forget that Windows XP will only recognize 3 GB. 4 GB, you need a 64 bit OS.

  • Want to upgrade the FSB667 von Satellite A100 RAM 2x1GB


    I have a mit A100 Intel T2300 (FSB667) a 2x512MB RAM (@ FSB553).
    I want to FSB667 2 x 1 GB (http://www.alternate.de/html/product/details.html?articleId=125766&showTechData=true)

    Is this possible? Are there known issues with MDT modules?
    I think that, apart from the delivery of 1 GB of RAM, there should be increased due to the equal FSB - is this good? Even the timings of the RAM - DOT are so bad (for FSB667-modules).

    Thanks in advance


    If books supports FSB 667 MHz, memory 667 Mhz modules must be compatible and should run ok.

    I have no experience with the modules of MDT memory because my foster Kingston modules.

    In any case, it's your choice what you want to use, but generally the performance of the modules of the brand is much better than the performance of the modules without name.

  • Satellite Pro A60 - I want to upgrade the RAM

    I bought a second hand Pro A60 and would like to increase its memory. I never have, so I need a little guidance. First of all, the system tells me that I have 2 x 250 MB of RAM. I understand that these are not removable, but I could add a 1 GB extra to give me the max of 1.5 GB.

    I think that the locations of memory are in B4, but when I open it I do not see an obvious empty slot. I guess what I see are among the 250 MB, but nothing else.

    Offers of additional State of RAM installation is simple, but a free slot is not obvious.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    On this laptop, just a slot is placed at the bottom. Turn off and let us know what capacity has this RAM module. You can buy new with more capacity and put it in this slot.
    A RAM is probably under the keyboard. Remove the RAM from the bottom and start your laptop. check the amount of RAM is recognized.

    If mobile shows 256 MB then you can add a RAM in low 1024 MB PC2700 (PA3313U-1M1G) and you will have approximately 1280MB what is the max RAM this laptop to handle with.

  • Upgrade the RAM for Satellite A60

    Hi I have a Satellite A60 with 512 MB DDR preinstalled in a slot. I want to install a 1 GB of additional ram from crucial. have a few questions:
    1 Toshiba A60 manual says that maximum RAM in two slots should not exceed 1.5 GB. That means 1500 MB literally like 512 + 1024 = 1536. I know its stupid but the hassle of a return of the items after the purchase is a pain.
    2. the Crucial website says that maximum RAM in two slots is 1280 MB.
    3. speed: can I install the 1 GB PC2700 on my laptop? Not sure my current speed of 512 MB, but critical comments on DDR is backward compatible. do you agree?
    4 slots: is there a difference between the slots? As I read, I can't put the two Rams at once. I need to put one at a time.
    5. as you watched the crucial page, do you think that the RAM of 1 GB is a good choice for my laptop?

    I am looking to buy the 1 GB of ram this week. I would appreciate your help on this guy.
    Thank you.


    Yes, you can use this module to 1 GB.
    You have 512 MB of internal memory and an expansion slot.
    If the maximum is 1.5 GB.
    The module fits into this slot and the speed is also OK.

  • I would like to upgrade the RAM of the Satellite A100-803


    I want to upgrade the RAM of my Satellite A100-803, which uses actually PC2-533, at 4 GB.

    Do I need Dual-Channel?
    One advises on what brand or the best model to use?

    If I not mistaken and for what I could see around the internet, I should be able to switch to 4 GB PC2-667 and Dual-Channel should not be necessary. But an expert of confirmation would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    I think you can use the modules of memory from different manufacturers.
    But you must choose the right with straight plug modules;

    As far as I know the RAM module should support this specification:

  • Satellite Pro 4600: I want to upgarde the RAM

    I want to upgarde the RAM on my satellite pro 4600. It currently has 128 MB of RAM.
    Anyone know what kind of memory card should I buy and how to install it?
    Should what size I go?
    I've been in the PC World and they weren't much help.
    Any ideas / information gratefully received.
    See you soon,.

    Hi Bob,

    The following link will take you to a page containing all relevant information on memeory upgrades for your 4600 (including part numbers.


    I think that your device has two memory slots, and I assume that you currently have a home in use with 128 MB of RAM installed (the 4600 had 64 MB or 128 MB).

    RAM modules are available in sizes 64 MB, 128 MB and 256 MB.

    The maximum that you can install is 512 MB (i.e. 2 X 256 MB modules. The amount that you need will depend greatly on what applications run you as well as what operating system, but the usual recommendation is a minimum of 512 MB for windows XP (at least for the earlier OS).

    The RAM modules are normally accessed from the bottom of the unit. Normally, there is a cover with 2 or more screws. Check you manual for the exact location on your device.

    Kind regards
