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 Satellite Pro A100 PSAACE I want to upgrade. I currently have 1 GB of RAM in two 512 MB modules. I looked on Crucial.com 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.
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?
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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?
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.
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...!
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
The following ram would work on the laptop mentioned above?
Kingston KVR533D2S4 / 2 G 2048 mb so-dimm, 200 pin
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 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.
See you soon
I want to upgrade my laptop (p100-240), where would I find the 2 GB of ram for this go to 667 mhz + can be you add another HD and you run a raid Setup?
Of course, you will notice an increase in performance. The upgrade from 1 GB to 2 GB is a lot.
I have much heavy app will load faster and you might be able to use more whole--> multitasking applications
Ok. i've got the Satego X 200-21 L (as the Satellite X 205 except the screen resolution) and I want to upgrade my memory to work up to 3 or 4 GB.
1 What is more profitable? An increase of 4 GB or 3 GB? I need it because Vista makes my Latptop very slowly sometimes, and for games.
I've heard Vista only detect / 3 GB (I have a 32 Bit system) - is this true?
2. where could I install and build in this helping hand storage work? What I have to go to a toshiba - authorized reseller or I could do in the next electronic market close to home?
3 should I know something important about him - as a guarantee - it could run out if I increase my working memory?
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR ANSWERS!
You can upgrade your laptop up to 4 GB of RAM. The compatible RAM 2 GB module has PA3513U-1M2G part number. I heard that the problem in recognizing/3 GB should only be solved with SP1.
Upgrade of RAM do not negate the warranty valid. It is also described in the manuals page 123 s user document. Check it out.
* Extension of RAM *:
What type of memory should I buy if I want to prolong 512 MB to * 2 GB * or more for
* Satellite M60 *-182 under Editon Windows XP with Service Pack 2 home
I mean: frequency, symbol, producer, etc. to work properly?
your machine can be upgraded to a maximum capacity of 2 GB main memory, which means:
to extend the memory to the limit of what the machine is capable of, you have to put 2 x 1 GB DDR2-S0DIMM modules with a frequency of 533 Mhz into the two slots of your machine.
I propose the following brands: Toshiba, Kingston, OCZ
My Satellite A30 104 recently came at the end of its warranty and had to open the heatsink for cleaning, and seeing that the CPU was available, I wonder if there should be (likely) to upgrade.
The processor is a Celeron 2.6 GHz (Northwood). I'm no more grunt, I would prefer a more low-power chip, while the cache L2 much bigger of a Pentium 4 is also desirable. I would be very grateful if someone could give advice if upgrades are likely available, and if so the chips would be appropriate? If I can give any more useful technical information, please ask.
Thanks in advance.
Usually it s not advisable to upgrade the CPU on laptops, because no one can tell if the laptop runs correctly and stable after the upgrade.
The heat and the temperature inside the laptop could be a serious problem.
In any case, I think that the laptop supports an Intel 852GME chipset.
The Intel 852GME chipset is optimized for the Mobile Intel Pentium 4 processor, has a main bus at 533 MHz and up to 2 GB memory DDR 266/333/200 at high speed.
But I'm not sure about m making it s 479 or 478
I want to improve my ram... its 512MB now, but not enough, now use 468 MB, I farm programs unused backgorund, always 468 MB to help... I also have virtual memory settings. Using virtual memory, not good at all. On games share memory with graphics as chip RAM you have many know... It will count if I switch 1 GB of RAM to the memory expansion on the rear panel on my laptop? I don't know what RAM to upgrade, works DDR or DDR2? How many MHz? What pin?
I have little time know what is the capacity of my memory expansion module to the back of my laptop?
If I add DDR2 it'll work with other main ram which is under the keyboard area..... ?
Thank you much for now :)
You must use PC2700 DDR - RAM. DDR2 will not work in your notebook.
