Question about the upgrade memory for my Satellite M40-307

Sorry for the newbie question. But if I have 512 MB of memory for the time being, what are my upgrade options?

Do I have to buy pairs of memory? So I can or buy 2 x 1 GB = 2 GB, or 2 x 512 MB = 1 GB + 512 existing. Or can I say just buy a single 512 MB or 1 GB chip?

Since no one wants to answer:
1. check if your laptop supports Dual Channel Ram (it should be, but just see the manual to be sure)
2. knowledge of what type of RAM you have. This will add or remove a possibility of upgrade

The thing with Dual Channel is, that you have the best performance if you use 2 RAM of the same type (really of the same type: company, size...)
you could:
3. Add a 512 MB of RAM of the same type you have
3 b. buy 2 pieces of new RAM of the same type (1 GB + 1 GB, or 2 + 2 GB) and do not forget that your laptop supports this quantity (once again: manual to check)

You will also find in the manual, if your computer supports DDR or same DDR2 RAM (faster)

If you have lost your manual, you can download it here on the toshiba Web page

I hope I could help a little.

    It comes from an old computer from 1997. I'm trying to update and upgrade for the treatment of text and with older games who have worked on it, even if a bit slower that I liked. MDK is a favorite. I add that a little more RAM will help. It has windows 95 on it. He is currently in good working condition. I have a perfectly good printer and a scanner that I can't use it on my other computers with operating systems newer, but which works well on this one. The computer has a card? IRE 32meg with a spare slot, CPU Pentium 200 HZ and a 4G IDE hard drive.

    What type of card m? IRE this computer accepts it and how can I add? The existing memory card has no info about it. I visited the manufacturing sites of memory several, and they come in white for this computer only. I think maybe it's SDRAM PC66, but I don't know. Any information would be appreciated.

    I just ordered two 128 meg sticks, clock 4, CL3, PC66. Who will be my max at the limit of my system to 256 meg. I still don't know whether or not the card memory factory was PC66, as there was no label on it, and my manual is non-specific, because it covers a group of computers that use the same series of motherboard. The seller did some research and said the Board recommended will work for me. He gave me a link http://panam.gateway.com/s/motherbd/intel/m00260/m0026023.shtml that my Board is covered by the listed series. I guess in a week or so I'll know. Thank you all for your help.

  • Question about the Installation of XP on Satellite A100-307

    Hello

    I have a Satellite A100-307 with problems to install Windows XP. Model PSAA9E-11F03XFR

    The recovery CD is lost and I installed the laptop with a normal CD of Windows XP (sp2).

    During the Installation of the monitor is black.

    The Installation is without possible recovery CD?

    I created an Nlite CD with XP, but the SATA controller not found or the breaking of the Installation.

    Help me, please.

    Vtobi

    Hello

    essentially it s possible to install an of a real CD of XP/Vista OS, I think that this is the reason why Toshiba provides drivers on their driver download site.

    How do you mean that the screen remains black? More precisely, the description would be better...
    Another question: what SATA controller did you slipstreamed on the XP CD? I hope that you´re to the topic the A100 has an older controller (should be an ICH7M).
    By the way: have you ever seen this Toshiba document? : http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB85017Z0000R01.htm

  • A few questions about the upgrade on Satellite A300-144

    Sorry for the typos, English is not my mother tongue.
    I want to ask some questions about the upgrade of a300-144.

    * Some info first.*

    CPU: T2370 ([http://ark.intel.com/products/34445/Intel-Pentium-Processor-T2370-1M-Cache-1_73-GHz-533-MHz-FSB]).
    Chipset: GM965 ([http://ark.intel.com/products/29821/Intel-82GM965-Graphics-and-Memory-Controller]).

    * Questions.*

    1. my frequency of laptop memory at 533 MHz, supports 667 MHz memory controller, memory modules can work at 667 MHz. Is - this because CPU FSB 533 MHz frequency and new processor at 667/800 MHz FSB will fix it or it is hardcoded in the BIOS?

    2 Intel said that the size of max memory for my chipset is 4 GB (2 x 2 GB), but Toshiba says that only 2 GB (2 x 1 GB), who is right?

    3 I know, taken of my CPU is μFCPGA-478 aka socket P, max FSB 800 MHz, max 35 W TDP, so T9500 ([http://ark.intel.com/products/33918/Intel-Core2-Duo-Processor-T9500-6M-Cache-2_60-GHz-800-MHz-FSB]) is a compatible processor or there are some limitations in the BIOS?

    > 1. My frequency of laptop memory at 533 MHz, supports 667 MHz memory controller, memory modules can work at 667 MHz. Is - this because CPU FSB 533 MHz frequency and new processor at 667/800 MHz FSB will fix it or it is hardcoded in the BIOS?

    The speed of the memory is related on the material. This means that the FSB is responsible for the limitation.
    If the FSB would allow support 667 MHz then the memory would also at this speed.

    > 2. Intel says that the size of max memory for my chipset is 4 GB (2 x 2 GB), but Toshiba says that only 2 GB (2 x 1 GB), who is right?
    The memory depends on the chipset. So if the chipset supports 4 GB of RAM, you should be capable of this move to 4 GB of RAM

    > 3. I know, my CPU is? FC-PGA-478 aka socket P, max FSB 800 MHz, max 35 W TDP, so T9500 (http://ark.intel.com/products/33918/Intel-Core2-Duo-Processor-T9500-6M-Cache-2_60-GHz-800-MHz-FSB) will be a compatible processor or there are some limitations in the BIOS?

    It might be possible that the new processor would be fully supported by the BIOS, but in most cases it should not be a problem if the chipset would support the new processor.
    But as far as I know the upgrade of the CPU is not supported by Toshiba or any other manufacturers of portable and its your own risk to run laptop with the new processor.

    Hello

    We are about to upgrade our environment vsphere 4.1 and 5.1. I have a question regarding the upgrade of the vcenter server. Today, we have installed SQL SERVER 2005 Express database and what I get when I run the setup I will be invited to install 2008 r2 express or use the existing database. I guess I picked the new installation 2008 r2 express database? This will keep my DB inventory and just install the new DB SSO and tables?

    I read that you need to run som aswell from the installation CD SQL queries but are - that if you choose the existing database?

    hope you understand

    If you are doing a new installation of 51u1/5.1, the DB that is installed is 2k8R2 express... However, on the update from versions 4.x 2 k 5 db is preserved.

  • Question on the module memory for Satellite A60

    I have a Satellite A60-352, and I was wondering if I can put my module memory of my laptop on my desk. And another thing, where I find the module in my cell phone because I'm not.

    Thank you

    Hello

    The fact is that the A60 was equipped with an internal memory (256 MB or 512 MB).
    This memory is not removable and so you only have one memory for an upgrade slot.
    Usually the A60 manages the PC2100 200 pin SODIMM (266 MHz) DDR modules.
    So, you can use the modules from different manufacturers that support the above specifications.

    Good bye

  • Suggestions and Questions about the upgrade my Hardrive Mac and Ram.

    Hi This is my first time asking something in the forums. (At least I think) Well anyway, I got the Macbook Pro Mid 2012 13 "with the retina also runs the OS El captain. I do computer for school and sometimes animation video editing and ive noticed some performance as my projects get bigger and bigger issues. I want to improve my mac, but I'm not very tech savy and don't want to do something useless, so I had a few questions, I wanted to ask you.

    Do I need for my hard drive and my Ram?

    What effect will the upgrade of my Ram and what effect will be upgrading my hard drive with an SSD?

    I saw this SSD online and thought of novice opion that sounds get Id more bang for my buck (link) with her. Is this good? What more to kill? WiIll it still works? Could you suggest some other good affordable options?

    My next question if I decide to upgrade my Ram can provide you with some good affordable links to buy of new RAM sticks, is also 8 GB, the best he can do?

    My next question I watched a few videos online and by installing the updates level looks really easy and fast. But I use bootcamp (to play games sometimes), and I wanted to know if I save my files on my drive as ive seen people do videos, (something to wipe the drive and put it back in after installing updates) will be I lose my windows 7, I lost the disc to reinstall and he check so I really want to buy a new also do not want to lose the things I put in memory.

    From the retina MacBooks you is impossible to pass the ram as it is soldered to the logic board. As with the hard drive, it's just a card ssd and you can't get those anywhere because their hard to find.

  • When is MS stop support Vista service pact 2 and a few questions about the upgrade to the new version

    Hello comrades,.

    I have a few questions and concerns, and hope that you guys can share with me some lights here.

    1. What is MS stop supports the Covenant of service about the update of windows Vista 2 / other online support?

    2. my computer is vista based 32 bit, ultimate version. I heard that there are a lot of wonderful things about Windows 8. Should I move to Windows 8, or should I actually wait awhile then buy a new computer with Windows 8 64 bit attached?

    Honestly, it's a question that has been bothering me for some time. But my laptop is 4 GB of RAM, 1920 x 1080 HD display, 300 GB HARD drive at 5400 RPM (cost me a lot - it's a SONY) and have been works very well even with vista, the operating system highly complainted by many others. I think it would be a waste to buy a new computer, including the so-called net-books and i - PAD, I know, they are beautiful and sexy, but looking at their record, I was speechless. Yet knowing 32bits was maximum and MS has already announced that they stopped support for Vista SP1, consider that SP2 is expected online.

    3. how long do you 32-bit based can last? Should I increase the RAM of 4 GB to 6 GB and upgrade to Windows 8?

    4. How about 64-bit based of the future? Or is it true that most of the computer manufacturing starts in the future these application device of the base (not the real computer-driven software)?

    5. or should I forget it all, wait 3-4 years, until my laptop would be a museum piece, then buy a desktop computer which monitor and hard drive is all separated, knowing it is the best technique for the $s and phone for mobile computing laptop use there?

    I understand that this is somewhat a personal decision, but I really appreciate you guys Preview on the path of the operating system! Thank you

    Yes it will work to buy a copy upgrade of Windows 8.   This is a custom installation rather than an upgrade in place once you switch between 32-bit and 64-bit.  However you can still save money by buying the upgrade license.

    More important is that all the drivers you need will be available.  Your computer manufacturer will not write drivers for Windows 8 because the computer has been out of production far too long.

    Windows 8 is a significant departure from previous versions and I suggest that you upgrade to Windows 7 If you are tired of Vista or wait until you buy a new computer before Windows 8.  You read the discussions on the forums of Windows 8 CP.  At this point, there are many critics of Windows 8 due to the removal of the Start button and Start Menu.  Many people dislike having to rely on style Metro Screen start for many things.  It is becoming a major concern.

    To navigate to the Windows 8 CP forums use in the middle of the dropdown at the top of this forum page.

    Note:  Microsoft has not announced that there will be copies upgrade for Windows 8.  Microsoft has already stopped providing copies of upgrade of Office is not yet clear what will be available for 8.

  • Question about the subscription renewal for vSphere lab Essentials home

    First post on the forum here.  My apologies if this isn't the right place for a question like this.

    I have a lab at home that I have set up using the "VMware vSphere 5 Kit Essentials" that I had bought on the VMware online store.  It was a pretty fun because it let me familiarize themselves with the technology that I use at work without the same consequences for the mistakes of the project.

    To be honest though, I have never much thought about support and subscriptions for it... Setup should really just have to learn and be the main server for my house projects.  The cost for me to buy the Kit of Essentials has been a little more than $500 a year ago, and it seems that my still currently active subscription (my account displays "subscription only" for the Essentials Kit) allows me to download the latest patches and maybe even upgrade to a new major version in the future.  I would like to continue the subscription, as this seems to be more profitable that leave on the subscription and then renew... compared to the initial $ 500, a one or three year renewal looks pretty good - and I'd get to continue to be on the latest versions of the vSphere Essentials.

    I thought it would be as simple as clicking on renew somewhere on my account, but that begins to not look like an option.  I think that I am driven to get in touch with a business partner for the subscription renewals (is this sounding right?).  This seems a bit much for me for a small laboratory at home like mine.  Is the only way to renew a subscription via a partner company?  If I'm completely off track here, please let me know.  If I'm here, does anyone know (or recommend) a partner company that manages small renewals as mine would be?

    Maybe I'm hesitant for nothing, but I thought I would ask those who understand the subscription and support better than me.

    Thank you very much for the help!

    To answer my own question, I discovered that for users with contracts less than $3,000... is it possible to make a renewal online without the need to go through a partner.  It turns out that the link to the online renewal page is available through the 60, 30, 15 days notice in advance of the emails that are sent to the holder of the account (which is how I found it).  The page renewal me related to this FAQ PDF that I found useful.  I was able to successfully renew my subscription from the link.

    http://www.VMware.com/files/PDF/myvmware/VMware-online-renewals-FAQs-en.PDF

    The important bits for me were the following (from the FAQ):

    ====

    Q: clients access renewals online from VMware.com or My VMware?

    A: access to the online renewal platform is by a "direct link" sent to clients through the electronic communication of renewal.

    Q: when VMware will send me the link of renewal online?

    R: the link for customers to renew online will appear on reminders e-mail sent 60-30-15 days prior to the expiration of the contract.

    Q: can customers renew all contracts renewal online?

    A: customers will be able to renew those contracts to a total value of less than $3,000 USD only. Customers will have the option of

  • Questions about the upgrade from 4.1 to 5.1

    I posted the following to the thread in the forum of Vsphere upgrade, and in five days I got ZERO responses. Perhaps more here and even here is the wrong place to post things, or maybe I'm not questions easily answer. I'll post it here too, since it mainly Virtual Center, I think. Maybe someone can help me or tell me what is the problem with my announcement that allows to go unanswered. Here we go:

    I'm about to upgrade my little (1 4 host ESX and Virtual Center) environment vSphere 4.1 and 5.1.  My database to the virtual Center lives on a separate SQL server 2008R2 server. My virtual Center Server is virtual, if that matters. I have upgraded my licenses and read the documentation, to try to formulate a plan that escapes enough causing any downtime for my virtual machines.

    I am designing a series of steps that are all pretty low, and such that each step does not harm anything, whereas if I have problems, I can take my time to solve. Then, when this step is stable, I can continue to the next step. I want to tell you what I have in mind, ask a question here and there and hope you can report errors that I make and answer my questions. The big picture is:

    1 Virtual Center update and give him a few days to show me any problem before doing anything else.

    2. upgrade to a host ESX 4.1 5.1 ESXi. Convince me things are okay, before you do more.

    3. put to level the other three 4.1 ESX hosts. Make sure that everything is fine.

    4 create new LUNS, formatted with the new VMFS, move my VM to them and remove the old one.

    If there is nothing wrong with this basic plan, please let me know.

    More details and questions:

    Question: The docs say my Virtual Center Server, under the SSO, the inventory service and the virtual Center Server, will need TEN GIGABYTES of RAM.  Is this true? It seems insane to me.

    Question: Can I install on my Virtual Server 4.1 single signon Center without DANGER?  In other words, its installation will prevent Server 4.1 virtual work center? I hope I can, because it is a new feature that I have trouble with. I don't want to get into a situation where my old virtual server Center does not work, and I can't get the new work.

    Question: The VI 4.1 client can talk to Virtual Center 5.1? The VI Client 5.1 can talk to Virtual Center 4.1? I hope that the answer to one of the people is 'yes '.

    Step 1: Create a backup of my virtual Center VM (with vRanger connection, if this is important) and a backup of my SQL database.

    Step 2: Install single Signon. Here is where I hope that this does not stop 4.1 virtual work center.

    Step 3: Upgrade the inventory Service and Virtual Center to 5.1

    Step 4: Install VI Client 5.1 on the VM virtual Center and on my desk from which I usually manage my environment.

    Step 5: Wait I'm comfortable that everything is fine. It is perhaps a day or two (or more).

    Question: How can I spend my hosts for maximum security? I'd rather put a DVD in the drive and do it from the console, unless this is not a good way.

    Question: Before I update a host, should I remove the fiber channel cables, so he can't see my VMFS LUNS? I think I read that somewhere, and it sounds like a good thing to do, even if I do not have.

    Step 6: Upgrade a host ESX 4.1 5.1 ESXi. Move a couple of virtual machines essential to it and he give a day or two to settle.

    Step 7: Upgrade the other three ESX host.

    Step 8: Wait until I'm really, really comfortable with things.

    Step 9: Create a new LUN VMFS5, migrate my VMs to them over time and remove the old one.

    I would greatly appreciate all advice and attention that you may have.

    Question: The docs say my Virtual Center Server, under the SSO, the inventory service and the virtual Center Server, will need TEN GIGABYTES of RAM.  Is this true? It seems insane to me.

    If your environment is small you can run all these in one and ofcouse if you execute all these in a server you need more RAM... There is no limit.

    Question: Can I install on my Virtual Server 4.1 single signon Center without DANGER?  In other words, its installation will prevent Server 4.1 virtual work center? I hope I can, because it is a new feature that I have trouble with. I don't want to get into a situation where my old virtual server Center does not work, and I can't get the new work.

    normally if you think only in terms of scalability, it is good to have separate these things... He is sure no questions evey thing won't work if you install it on the same server also.

    Question: The VI 4.1 client can talk to Virtual Center 5.1? The VI Client 5.1 can talk to Virtual Center 4.1? I hope that the answer to one of the people is 'yes '.

    The VI 4.1 client can talk to Virtual Center 5.1? No, but talk about Client 5.1 Virtual Center 4.1

    Step 1: Create a backup of my virtual Center VM (with vRanger connection, if this is important) and a backup of my SQL database.

    Step 2: Install single Signon. Here is where I hope that this does not stop 4.1 virtual work center.

    Step 3: Upgrade the inventory Service and Virtual Center to 5.1

    Step 4: Install VI Client 5.1 on the VM virtual Center and on my desk from which I usually manage my environment.

    Step 5: Wait I'm comfortable that everything is fine. It is perhaps a day or two (or more).

    these steps are ok

    Question: How can I spend my hosts for maximum security? I'd rather put a DVD in the drive and do it from the console, unless this is not a good way.

    BLI, or DRAC suites method what ever you... very well.

    Question: Before I update a host, should I remove the fiber channel cables, so he can't see my VMFS LUNS? I think I read that somewhere, and it sounds like a good thing to do, even if I do not have.

    Installing esxi will not hurt of thing... to the old VMFS... It will ask to keep or to format the old vMFS... BUT I prefer to remove the cables... BECAUSE we are humans...

    Step 6: Upgrade a host ESX 4.1 5.1 ESXi. Move a couple of virtual machines essential to it and he give a day or two to settle.

    no need... . If the hardware is on the HCL, I mean the firmware/driver etc... for the esx is on the HCL, then no problem...

    Step 7: Upgrade the other three ESX host.

    Step 8: Wait until I'm really, really comfortable with things.

    Step 9: Create a new LUN VMFS5, migrate my VMs to them over time and remove the old one.

    assign the new LUN and create VMFS and migrate... It'S her!
