MD101LL/A + 2SSD + 16 GB of ram with the hiccups

Hello ladies and gentlemen!

Unfortunately my MacbookPro 13 "mid-2012 last only two years without any problem. I was more than satisfied with the purchase and modification of the Windows system and was amazed by the reliability that this computer can give you. When I bought it I also bought 16 GB RAM Kingston and asked the Apple dealer to install it. Year later, I bought the Samsung 850 PRO 128 GB SSD and put second life in this machine. Everything worked well, and by "working", I mean the intensive use of Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, InDesign and same first also connected to monitor the second.

After you install Yosemite, I started having some minor problems with sudden restarts and so on, nothing special when you're used to Windows machines. A few months later, I started having the problem with multicolored stripes on the screen who proposed the GPU problem or the motherboard. They showed only successive, especially on a very intense use. Then I went to the Iceland carrying my mac in the backpack I used to do on other trips. For 10 days, when MacBook was not connected to the secondary monitor, everything was fine. When I came back the problem began to occur more often at the point when I wasn't able to use the laptop more because he gave me only three annoying sounds and restart. I discovered that probably it's dying motherboard.

I sent the MacBook to the Apple reseller and they cleaned the motherboard of every kind of moisture or rust might be, they have changed the two cables, run all this fancy diagnostics and my laptop was like new again. Everything started working. At least that's what I heard on the phone. When I arrived to pick up the consultant has started to show me how it works and then BAM! Scratches on the screen again! You should see his face!

It turns out that when he holds the laptop with one hand, pressing the left side of the touchpad seeds present! Conclusion: problem with memory. The location of the bottom to be exact. Superior was beautiful, no matter what sticks of RAM, we used. The bottom has always been a failure. So I was left with only 8 GB of RAM and the upgrade of an another SSD instead of the Cd-ROM-Samsung 850 EVO 500 GB SSD.

This configuration has worked quite fine, BUT from time to time, he showed a kind of hiccup that now are my daily problem...

Please, watch the video below and tell me what the * is still happening?

(ofc I know check slows performance, but it has the same appearance when the only recording not)

  • Libretto U100: Creating an SD ram with the Boot Toshiba utility bootable

    I am trying to create an SD card bootable ram using "TOSHIBA SD Memory Boot Utility".

    I don't have a floppy drive, so I use image img/vfd files created on another computer.
    In both cases, I get a window that says "TSDBOOT it comes to format not supported ', so that is not supported, my file img/vfd or my SD card RAM?

    I tried with card SD 8 MB and 256 MB, formatted both using "TOSHIBA SD Memory Card Format".

    NB: Before you start to use Partition Magic on the disk and install Linux, I would like to have a rescue disk (using the SD card instead of the WinXp boot rescue disk).


    I force are a large part of the experience, but I presume this vfd/img file is not supported. As you know the latest are shipped without a floppy drive, and you can use the SD card to update the BIOS or even to save the password.

    Please check the advanced search on this forum and you will find a few interesting discussions on the same topic.

  • I have 8 GB of Ram in the 1st slot DIMM... can I add another in 2nd slot?

    I ordered a HP Evny 310xt 700 with windows 8.1

    I opted to have 8ram in a Dimm location instead of 4ram in two slots...

    I had hoped to get another 8ram module into slot 2 when my pc gets... so I'll have 16 RAM, but I have a hard time to know where I can get the original parts of HP. I haven't tried th parts store to HP no chance. I don't want to throw the 8ram far which is delivered with the machine and two others... I want to keep the 8ram that comes with it... and add a unique 8ram.

    "The part number for my module memory 8 GB is part number 698651-154"

    do I have to use the exact same part of the manufacturer?

    Thank you very much in advance


    Yes, you can add 1 piece of 8 GB to the second slot to make 16 GB as shown:

    You can use the other RAM with the SAME characteristics but using the same RAM is much better in terms of peace of mind. HP RAM may be slightly more expensive.

  • I have a MBP of 2009 end. I updated the material to 8 GB of ram with an SSD of 240gig. I want to run the new OSX, but is not on the list approved for the update. Anyone know why?

    I have a MBP of 2009 end. I updated the material to 8 GB of ram with an SSD of 240gig. I want to run the new OSX, but is not on the list approved for the update. Anyone know why?

    It is a decision that was made by Apple.  El Capitan is the newest OSX that will support a 2009 MBP.

    This is not uncommon.  My 2006 MBP came with Tiger, but is limited to OSX Snow Leopard.

    Old hardware ends up by becoming obsolete with newer technology.


  • Mac Air 1.3 Ghz i5, 4 GB ram end of 2013 everyone upgraded to El Capitan with the same configuration?

    worried about the going 10.10.5 Yosemite to El Capitan. Especially with only 4 GB of ram. Have 256 GB SSD HARD drive

    would appreciate an answer from people already have the upgrade.problems with the same configuration? slower?

    FWIW, the El Capitan applications are no different from Yosemite. In fact, it is easier on resources in some areas. The main thing you need to worry is to make sure the software and equipment to use is compatible. Make sure you have a good backup in case you change your mind and want to downgrade.

  • C55-A-1MW satellite does not start with the new RAM inserted


    I hope to find someone who can help me... I bought ram memories and tried 4 different memories in my C55 A 1MW Satellite. But each card RAM I have insert makes the computer cannot start... It lights just to stop again.

    Is there a compatibility issue or anything like that? I used 2 different aData Ram extensions cars, 1 1 and 4 GB 2 GB. the 4 GB card was 1333 mhz and was 2 GB 1600 mhz card. and I tried 2 corsair 4 GB 1600 mhz different cards.

    Is this something that makes only able to expand RAM with Toshibas own memories or is the second cardslot for broken RAM memory?

    As I see you use RAM modules with different specifications. Your problem is certainly of RAM compatibility and you must use the RAM modules with the same specifications.
    According to specification of laptop there are 4 slots of memory and laptop can handle up to 32 GB of RAM.

    The compatible RAM modules are:
    4 GB DDR3L-1600-PA5104U-1M4G
    8 GB DDR3L-1600-PA5104U-1M8G

    Of course, you can use modules from other manufacturers, but please do not use some cheap products. I can recommend the use of Kingston memory modules.

  • I have a Macbook Pro mid 2012 edition, i7 and 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) of RAM DDR3 (1600 MHz). Can I add any RAM with this config?

    I want to upgrade my RAM 16 GB (2x8GB) and also to change the hard drive (750 GB) to a 250 GB SSD. I was going through the forum and people have posted that they have improved their RAM with no problems. I visited the local electronics market and is the knowledge that they have a Kingston 8 GB DDR3 1600 MHz RAM. I just want to know if it is safe to add that RAM for my MBP or not? One of my friends told me that the MBP requires a different sort of RAM so I am confused. In addition, I was intending to buy a single 8 GB and set up my MBP with 12 GB (8 + 4) RAM and then replace the other 4 GB with an 8 GB to make eventually 16GB. Will there be a problem with this approach? Also can I add any SSD fits laptops from my system? I found an SSD 240 GB (uv300) Kingston. Please suggest if I can add that.

    You can fit a maximum of 16 GB, if you choose compatible Ram.

  • Satellite L30 10Y does not start with the new RAM modules

    regged just with this forum I have a problem to upgrade memory.

    I read through a few problems of memory here and all users that it is a problem of memory comaptible. I got Hynix 512 MB RAM in my laptop and I bought 2 x 1 GB memory Hynix these two are match sticks to the installed memory, but when I installed my laptop wouldn't boot at all. It would only boot if I had a stick in both.

    I tried to switch ports top and btm and even when a stick was installed it says in XP, Vista and Windows 7 (yes I tried all systems) 896 MB of available space. I even tried to use my other Hynix stick, but he won't start and showed more stick of 1 GB (896 MB usable in Windows 7). After reading all the threads I wonder if it is a hardware failure or is there a fix in the world of Toshiba or perhaps in the world of Toshiba, the L series is almost obsolete and not worth to help people who unwittingly bought their goods.

    I apologize for being slightly down on Toshiba but a laptop that shows what he can work and is not a company should hold his hand up and say that Yes, there is a fault and help deal with the problem.

    You see 896 MB, because the rest is reserved for VRAM for graphics card.

    Sometimes RAM may simply be incompatible, because of incompatibilities of calendar or RAM chip/controller design differences.

    Thanks in advance for your answers!


    they * SHOULD * be compatible with this machine, but I won´t dare to say they really are.

    Then it s even better to use the original modules because you can be sure that they are 1000% compatible with your laptop.
