Question about upgrading Ram on a Satellite A200

Hi friends,

I have a Satellite A200-13O with 120 GB HDD, 1.8 GHz Intel Centrino Duo, 1 GB of ram, but there 2 512 chips installed.

If I upgrad 2 1 GB ram is it possible to improve performance...?

and what happens if I switch to 2 GB dual channel...?

It has Windows Vista Ultimate...!

Thank you


Do you mean that you would use a single module of ram of 1 GB?

Well, you would still have 1 GB of RAM, but the dual channel cannot be used due to lack of second module.
So, if you can, try to use exactly the same 2 modules for best performance of the memory.

The laptop supports two memory locations so you can't do anything wrong insert 2 modules in slots 2 to run dual channel modules

Welcome them

  • Question about upgrading Ram on a Satellite Pro A200

    I want to buy an internal memory of my A200 Satellite Pro Mod no, PSAE1E, but I can't find my model in the drop-down lists, what memory do I need, I want to switch using two sticks of 1 GB memory, at the present time, I have two sticks of 512 MB installed.


    Compatible modules are: * DDR2 667 MHz (PC2-5300) 200 - PIN SODIMM *.

    As far as I know all the A200 series laptops can evolve until * 2 GB *.

    This means that a memory would support module of RAM 1 GB max.

    As the previous user have already said, the Kingston modules are not bad.

    I also use it in my book and so far, the modules are ok.

    Thank you.
    Any input would be appreciated


    This page might be useful for you:

    You need DDR2 533 MHz (PC2-4200) 200 - PIN SODIMM barrettes.

    But I doubt that the Kingston KVR533D2S4 / 2G 2048 mb would be fine because the A110 can be upgraded up to 2 GB, and in this case, you can only use 2 x 1 GB RAM modules

    I have the Satellite A200-1CR, PSAE0E-02G01TSK
    I have 2 GB of RAM
    I can install 4 GB of RAM (because I try 2x2Gb 800 MHz) and don t work.

    Do I only 667 MHz or my laptop supports only 2 GB?
    Thank you


    Your laptop can be upgraded to 2 GB top only and for the upgrade you must use 667 MHz compatible modules.
    To correctly update I recommend 2 X 1 GB DDR2-667 with PA3512U-1M1G part number.

  • Upgrading RAM in the Satellite A200-1WR


    My laptop is a Satellite A200-1WR, code PSAE3E-05J01CCE, including 2.048 (1,024 + 1,024) MB RAM memory.
    I wonder if it is possible to upgrade to 4 GB memory
    In the specifications, it is said that the maximum expansion is 2 GB.

    However, I don't know if 2 GB is the maximum expansion for each slot, it is possible to have two modules of 2 GB each, or the motherboard was held 2 GB total.

    Thanks in advance

    Unfortunately, this model of laptop can handle with 2 GB of RAM only.
    Sorry, but move to 4 GB is not possible.

  • Question about shortcuts FN on a Satellite A200-1CR

    I have a problem... or that's what I think it is... I bought a new TOSHIBA Satellite A200-1CR with Vista Home Basic preinstalled and I upgraded to Vista Business. The problem is in what regards the use of the FN key with additional shortcuts... With the help of these shortcuts is tricky because I don't really know how they work... Under Windows, after starting at the top of the screen, I have a few buttons (exactly the FN shortcuts) that I can use by keeping the mouse over and they slide down, but the problem is that after these buttons appear to the use of the FN keyboard hotkeys is disabeled... or kind, because I can use FN + F9 , FN + F10 shortcut FN + F11. Please help me and tell me if this is normal... and if not tell me how can I fix. Thank you!

    Oh, that's normal, Don t worry. You can disable the buttons and then a little work with the FN keys.
    Just remove that bar on the top of the autostart and he won´t bother you more.

    The question is...

    I want to upgrade my portable computer system memory 3 GB DDR2 (800 MHz) RAM to 4 GB of RAM DDR3 (1066 MHz), which is compatible or not?



    In my opinion, you should follow specification not Intel and Toshiba. S Toshiba of info is based on own tests and facts.
    So, depending on the specifications of Toshiba for the GM45 Chipset it is clearly written:

    Min(on Board) wheel capacity - DDR2 800 MHz 0 MB / 8 GB max
    Type of extension of memory - DDR2 800 MHz 1 GB/2 GB/4 GB
    Type of module - SO-DIMM

    So if Toshiba write about 800 MHz modules, you must use the modules to them and not faster.
    You may be able to use faster too, but they do not work with the maximum speed, but not going down to 800 MHz.

    If you want to use max RAM amount use recommended and tested 2 x 2 Go DDR2-800 (PA3669U-1M2G).
    Indicated as compatible RAM, 4 GB DDR2-800 (PA3670U-1M4G).

    I have a SP4600 and because I love this machine, I want to give him the chance to stay with me - but unfortunately, it will only work by increasing its performance...

    Is anyone here has made some experiences in upgrading a SP4600 more than 512 MB of RAM?
    I know that this machine uses PC100 SD - RAM that is available up to 256 MB.
    But someone has tried successfully to put in PC133 memory? And if so, to were the limit?

    And more: what about the upgrade of the rest, for example, the CPU or the whole motherboard?
    Currently, his heart beats with 700 Mhz (Celeron). Would it be as easy as just another graft?
    Or would it be easier to exchange the whole motherboard?
    I've never done anything like this before and I'm not sure how the rest of the system can react on these interventions, in particular because the we-board-video and sound on board...

    I would be delighted if someone could give me some positive feedback on these issues...


    You can only use the memory 100 Mhz modules because the FSB is limited to 100 MHz.
    If you use 133 Mhz modules, they will work only at 100 Mhz.

    You can upgrade the satellite Pro 4600 until 512 MB (2x256MB)

    Other devices such as the CPU or GPU are not extensible and the motherboard may be replaced only with the same motherboard

    Finally, you should know that the laptop technology is a little different and you can't compare it with any desktop computer. You can update some parts such as the memory or HARD drive, but that s all the

  • Question about upgrading RAM on Satellite Pro A100

    Hi all

    I have a Satellite Pro A100 PSAACE I want to upgrade. I currently have 1 GB of RAM in two 512 MB modules. I looked on and he says I need DDR2 PC2 4200 module (240 pin DIMM), but of course, they want to sell their own stuff that only comes in 1 GB modules.
    So, what is the maximum amount of RAM my computer can take? I would like to have more than 2 GB in order to make my page file smaller. Is 2 GB maximum I can put in?

    To be honest, I read several threads where people were not so happy with the RAMs from crucial. In my opinion, you should spend your laptop with 2 x 1 GB RAM. With 2 GB of RAM, your laptop will work fine and I'm sure you'll be happy with it.

    As recommendable modules, you must use either 1 GB (PA3411U-2M1G) or module recommended by Kingston.

  • Satellite A60-131: Question about upgrade RAM and HARD drive

    I have a Toshiba Satellite A60 S-131, bought 2 years ago.
    I want to know is it possible for me to upgrade (internal) for a superior ability to HDD 40 GB HARD drive and update my RAM to 512 MB on the rise.

    Also I already inserted a 256 MB DDR RAM in the empty memory slot almost 1 year ago.

    Help will be appreciated.

    Hi Pranjal,

    You can definitley upgrade your hard drive for a larger version. You should find that a 80 or 100 GB will work fine. You should make sure that you get you a new disc with the same physical characteristics as you existing. The following link will help you remove the hard drive.

    You can also get a new hard drive with a more rapid rotation speed (5400 RPM or 7200 RPM).

    I think that the maximum RAM for the A60 is 1.25 GB which includes 1 X fixed module (I presume yours is 256 MB, which means that you can install an additional module with a capacity up to 1 GB. Available in capacities of 256 MB, 512 MB and 1 GB of RAM modules.

    Kind regards

  • Satellite P100-188: Question about upgrade Ram and CPU

    HELO everyone,
    I need a major update so I wanted to know if it is possible to upgrade the processor. I'm already playing Doom 3 ulra high with 4 X Ati and 1024 X 768.
    He sent me some 46 frames per second, with 2 GB ddr 533.

    Then I put the Satellite P100 - 188 T2400 T2500 or T2600 CPU and can I use ddr2 667 mhz Ram?

    Any suggestions how much performance increase if you upgrade hard drive 5400 RPM to 7200 RPM with 8 MB of cache?

    Thank you


    The CPU cannot be replaced. But you can expand the memory with the modules:
    PA3499U - 1 M 25 (Kit of memory 256 Mo DDR2-667)
    PA3511U - 1 M 51 (Kit of memory 512 MB DDR2-667)
    PA3512U-1M1G(DDR2-667 1GB Memory Kit)
    PA3513U-1M2G(DDR2-667 2GB Memory Kit)

    DDR2-533 256 MB (PA3389U - 2M 25)
    512 MB DDR2-533 PA3412U - 2 M (51)
    1 GB OF DDR2-533 (PA3411U-2M1G)

    The maximum memory that you can use this camera is 4 GB.

  • Question about upgrading RAM on Satellite P100-423


    can someone reassure me I'll buy the correct RAM and the best for my 2 Satellites. One is the P100-423.
    The other is Satellite Pro P100.

    (1) can I use modules of PC2 5300 DDR2 SO-DIMM 200 pin - 667 Mhz on both computers.
    I want to buy chips to 4 x 1 GB (all the same), so both will have 2 Gig ram PC.

    (2) I saw the bullets above with 533 Mhz, but told me I can use or 667 Mhz. Is this correct?
    667 Mhz would be faster and better is not it?

    (3) some chips are also designated PC2 - 4200 - instead of PC2-5300. Again, I can use either?

    (4) Finally, I always thought that it was better for if adapt to 2 memory chips to live the same size - that is why I want to use 2 x 1 GB chips.
    Yet, I was recommended to mount 1 x 1 and 1 x 2 GB in each pc.
    I know that IE a total of 4 GB is theoretical only 3.25 GB is possible.
    But asymmetric training will offer much greater performance on balance training 2 x 1 GB. ?

    Thank you very much for all the advice offered


    With the help of RAM slower is possible. I have another laptop to work with the iso 4200 5300. It works ok.

    However, using the exact speed is better because it gives the best performance. Your system calendar is set on those memories.

    However slower modules, but more RAM still will give you better performance.

    3G seems to be the max for Vista-32. The imbalance is obviously not optimal, but I expect that the performance is better with 2 GB.
