Satellite P100 - 324 BIOS reports less than real memory installed, why?

I have a P100-324 Satellite which I installed 4 GB of memory.
Memory is a Kingston KVR667D2S5 / 2G, so I installed 2 of them.
I've updated the BIOS, but still when I press F2 to access the configuration
I find that the less than 4 GB installed memory. It makes account
3070 MB. When using windows the systeminfo program reports 4096 MB RAM.
However, System properties, it shows 3.0 GB and that is because
It is 32-bit windows xp mce. I ran live fedora 7 x 64 and he reports only 3 GB as the bios.
Why? Is there a way to fix that.

Please look here, here's your answer:

  • Satellite P100-324: How do I get the BIOS to version 2.40

    I have the Toshiba Satellite P100-324 with BIOS version 3.30. I need to downgrade the BIOS to version 2.40 because it help with the problem of stuttering when playing under Windows Vista. But the problem is that the version 2.40 is not available to the Web from Toshiba Europe site (I am from the Russia). I found this version (a companion gave me), but it is for model P105 (American version).

    It is - can I use the American version of BIOS 2.40 for my European P100? Is it compatible?


    > The question is - is - that I can use the American version of BIOS 2.40 for my European P100? Is it compatible?

    No, as far as I know the BIOS from a U.S. Internet site is different and cannot be used on European laptops. The risks are too high so that the laptop may be damage.

    I think the downgrade of the BIOS can be made by a certified maker Toshiba.
    So if you want to downgrade the BIOS will attempt to contact a service provider authorized in your country.

    But I put t understand the connection with the BIOS and the running game?
    In my opinion the game performance has nothing to do with the BIOS.

    I think your statement about 3.30 BIOS is a bit adventurous.

  • Satellite P100-324 - network card losing connection

    Hi all

    I'm a new user here, I have a * Toshiba Satellite P100-324 * with Window XP - 32 bit Media Center Edition.
    I have problems with my network card that seems to me to lose the connection network and need to reset the IP (repair) every time than in quite awhile to find the connection.

    What do you suggest to me what is the problem? A hardware problem or a software (driver)?

    Thank you in advance.


    At the moment it is not easy to say what is the reason for this, it could also be a problem of the cable network.
    Did you check this first with another cable?

    If you have determined that the cable is not defective, you should try to update the network adapter driver. The latest version which is pre-tested on your laptop is that you can find on the Toshiba site: decision-making supported Downloads & => Download drivers

    Do you have other laptops or computers connected to the router? Maybe the problem is the router

    Good bye

  • Satellite P100 - 324 (PSPA6E) - Intel T7400 - disabled virtualization

    Hi Toshiba support staff

    I have a toshiba satellite p100-324 (pspa6e) with the processor intel core2duo t7400 and my problem is hardware virtualization (VT aka VMX) does not work due to it's locked off the coast by the bios. Also there is no option in the bios to enable it. It's not making any sense that you have this technology, but you can not use.

    I'm a professional programmer but I can't test my programs in a virtual environment due to this bios chip. I've been waiting since the 3.30 bios version. Now I use phoenix bios v4.70 but it does not!

    I think that the irresponsibility of it's toshiba and toshiba not published a new BIOS to support the features of what they sold, this will be my last toshiba product purchase. It's a waste of money. You should have said clearly what are the features have been disabled if you do not plan to resolve this problem. If the toshiba will continue like this, the number of dissatisfied customer will happen.

    As far as I know that virtualization should be Springs per CPU.
    Seems the Intel T7400 supports the VT:, SL9SK, SLGFJ, SLGFV

    If I m not wrong not the VT is enabled and supported by default if the VT option is not available in the BIOS.

    How did you check the State of VT?

  • No sound on a Satellite P100-324 using don't Win 7 64 bit

    Hi all

    I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite P100 - 324.
    I installed Win 7 64 bit on this computer and I have problem with sound now.

    My sound does not work. I tried to install a driver but without result.
    I tried to download the driver from realtek but it was the same thing.

    Do you know how I can run on this PC?

    Thanks for your advice



    Satellite P100-324 belongs to the series of PSPA6E.
    The European driver Toshiba page asserts that Realtek audio driver should be compatible.
    But the Realtek audio driver Toshiba on page is released for Win 7 32 bit, not 64-bit.

    I recommend the driver on the Realtek page. There you should find one that suits.

    You can also check the Dev ID and could find the compatible driver for internet.

    Here, you have to choose the double pointing device.
    Then detailed-> TouchPad tab settings

    But first, we should know if your laptop supports this feature.

  • Game Falcon 4.0 allied force crashes on the Satellite P100-324

    Hi all

    I have a toshiba Satellite P100 324 with a nvidia geforce 7900GS 512 MB vram.
    I have a problem with falcon 4.0 allied force. Everything is going well except when I update to patch 1.06 and upward.

    The game freezes for a second every 10 seconds. I sent the allied force. I've tried everything.
    Anti-one off, reinstall the drivers, reinstall direct 9.0 c... They tell me to turn off Full screen Anti-Aliasing.
    Are not full-screen Anti-Aliasing in my menu of the graphics card as anti-aliasing.

    Is there a difference between Full screen anti-aliasing and anti-aliasing?
    So, I disabled everything in the view menu. I tried to update the drivers, but there is no update for this toshiba.

    Does anyone know if there are new drivers for this model?

    Thank you all


    F4AF is an old game, I don't think that you have the latest video drivers. Anti-aliasing anti-aliasing full screen is the same, don't worry about this.
    Of my friends installed this game too and had similar problems. Try to reinstall the game, the patch to the latest official version. Then, there are a few informal corrections called superpak, which solves many problems. Recent publication is by superpak4.

    Check this. Hope this helps you.


  • Satellite P100-324: memory of 512 MB discrete or shared graphics card?


    I'll buy P100-324, but I couldn't be sure of its memory VGA cards. It says "GeForce Go 7900 GS 512 MB", I checked the map on the net and discovered that it was produced with a maximum of 256 MB of memory dedicated. Then 512 MB means X MB dedicated and X - 512 MB shared.
    I searched all Web sites to determine the amount of memory shared but can't find it.

    Any of you guys know this?

    And also the owners of P100-324, please comment on the performance of your VGA card?

  • How often has RAM of Satellite P100-324?


    I ' am, thinking about to upgrade my Satellite P100-324 (PSPA6E) 4 GB of RAM, but did not know which one to choose.
    Initially, I have installed memory 533 MHz. My question is - 533 MHz limit for this model?
    or I can install memory 667 MHz and it will work on 667 MHz?

    Also if I install 4 gb - I'll see 3 GB, but will it still runs dual channel mode?

    Thanks for you help in advance.

    Hi guys,.

    This thing with 4GB-> / 3GB is not uncommon. The chipset is just to take a portion of system memory and turns to shared kept. Unfortunately, the manufacturer of the chipset does not tools release or someone set up a function to decrease/increase the shared video memory.

    So, in the case of 4 GB of RAM you have then 1 GB shared video memory.

    And what about dual channel: Yes it will still work on two channels.
