Satellite P20 S203 does not recognize my additional 1 GB memory

Hi all

My computer (Satellite P20 S203) does not recognize my second Bank of memory (1 GB). I have two banks of memory of 1 GB installed. BIOS reports only 1 GB, Windows reports that 1 GB and my Linux so he says only 1 GB of memory. I removed each Bank of memory and restarted the computer successfully in each of the two slots, No Problem, but when the two banks of memory are inserted, it always uses only 1 GB. My BIOS is on version 2.10:

BIOS is the PhoenixBIOS 4.0 Release 6.0

I know it's an old computer (about 10 years), but what could cause such a problem?

Thanks a lot for any advice or suggestions!

Kind regards
Andy

Hi fuegi_1,

The upgrade modules, bought exactly?

To me it sounds like that it s a compatibility problem or your computer laptop doesn't support 2 GB.

If you use two memory modules, you must only use two modules of the same production.

  • Toshiba satellite 2450 s203 does not recognize the atheros wireless network adapter

    Hello!

    I have a toshiba satellite 2450 s203 and a network card wireless atheros integrated - somewhere in the laptop - there.

    However, I am running win xp pro and the Device Manager IS NOT to FIND THE MAP!

    He finds the ethernet card and a 1394 network adapter!

    But not the wireless network card!

    Any ideas? I downloaded the drivers from the card wireless site but without success!

    What should I do?

    Thank you!

    Hello
    The WiFi card is an option for this model for example. It is not included in all machines. You must purchase the correct module for W - lan to work.

    If the card is installed in the machine, you should see a yellow esclamation mark (!) or "unknown device" If you uninstalled hw.

  • Satellite A110-294 does not recognize the wireless card

    Hello

    the question is:
    Why my Satellite A110-294 does not recognize the wireless card?

    I re - install Xp PRO with all the drivers.

    I have try all the drivers Wireless: Wlan intel + proset intel atheros wlan + wlesscmgr

    I don't understand, can you help me?

    Thank you
    André

    Hello

    To my knowledge, the A110-294 uses the Atheros WLan card and therefore the Atheros Wlan dirver should be the right one.

    You can find the latest driver for Atheros WLan here:
    http://APS2.toshiba-tro.de/WLAN/

    Just a question;
    You see the local network card in Device Manager? I mean, you should see an Ethernet controller or an unknown device in the network adapters
    The driver is missing, then the device must be marked with a yellow exclamation point

  • Satellite L30-105 does not recognize the 1 GB of additional RAM

    Hi there I hope someone can help me

    I have a Satellite L30-105 PSL33E, which came with 1 GB of ram installed (2 x 512 MB made by TeamViewer)
    and it's terribly slow with vista, not to mention programs.
    The toshiba website says max RAM is 2 GB, so I bought a Kingston 1 GB ram chip to increase the ram to 1.5 GB. I thought should try before moving to 2 GB

    However after installing memory vivid it's show still only 1 GB in windows and in the bios (894 + the rest for video). It has the latest available BIOS on the site 3.10, yet still does not recognize the chip.

    The chip is installed in the lower slot, including the original 512 at the top (closest to the keyboard)

    Are limited to only some of the Satellite of RAM?
    The old subjects indicate if kingston does not work try corsair.
    Other topics suggested to change slots
    Others suggest that it may have only two of the same ram chips in IE 2 x 512 or 2 x 1 GB, you may not have 1 of each

    Can anyone help? everyone knows about similar problems?

    I will not buy any more RAM to try different brands for the same issue to occur

    Hello

    The L30-105 is able to manage the 1024Mo modules in each location it should be able to update the RAM up to 2 GB.

    > Why the RAM 1 GB module cannot be recognized?
    Perhaps the two modules are not compatible with each other
    I would recommend using two identical modules of the same manufacturing
    I use Kingston modules, they are ok for me

  • Satellite L655 sometimes does not recognize the wireless card

    I have a L655. Most of the time it works perfectly fine. Sometimes when I turn on my computer, it does not recognize my wireless card. He considers that it is not at all.

    The icon in the status bar says that there is no cable ethernet plugged in and nothing on the wireless.
    Usually this icon is not present, and one for the wireless is (whether it is connected or not and if there are connections available or not). In the device manager there is nothing for the wireless card.

    Under network card it has only ethernet. Its as if it does not exist.
    Basically the way to solve this problem is by restarting simply my computer until he figures it.
    Sometimes, it can take 5 or more times.

    Any help please?

    Hello

    What satellite L655-xxx you have exactly?
    As far as I know there are different models with different wireless network cards.

    Your BIOS is up to date? Please check this box.

    So now to a few proposals of solution:
    First of all that I recommend to check if the update of the Wlan driver would improve the Wlan functionality.
    In addition, you must deactivate the energy saving feature for Wlan in Device Manager and Windows 7 power options as well.

    When I boot, the screen is in VGA 16 color mode, it recognizes the DVD player, but does not recognize the CD/DVD when inserted. I tried to install and run the utility "driver robot" Toshibas, but the display is such that I see all of the screen to start the search.

    Hello

    OK, you have installed the disk HARD of another laptop but too format the HARD drive? I mean if the HARD drive performed from another laptop, you need to reinstall Windows because now you have other hardware installed.
    What version of Windows is it?

    If you want to install a driver for the graphics card go into Device Manager and select Update driver.

    Hello

    Is your AC adapter malfunctions or there is something wrong with the power supply to electronic s laptop.
    In the first case you could purchase a new compatible AC adapter and could check if the laptop can run successfully.
    The second possibility is a serious hardware problem, but in this case, the laptop must be checked by an authorized technician.

  • Satellite A200-1AE does not recognize the USB 2.0 flash drive

    I have a problem because my satellite A200-1AE with Microsoft Vista does not recognize the USB 2.0 flash drive. He asks me a program/software!
    The same USB works without problem on other computers with vista!

    Someone knows what to do?

    Hello

    First of all, you must disconnect all USB devices and must remove the USB ports and controllers in the Device Manager.
    After this procedure, you must restart the laptop. After a new restart the Vista operating system should recognize the USB ports and should reinstall USB drivers again.

    Then you must update the Vista to the State! All fixes and patches must be installed. Please note that you will have to visit the MS Update site for all patches

    Notes; MS has released a beta of Vista SP1. I installed it on my laptop and it has solved several problems.

  • Satellite L30-113 does not recognize the two modules DIMM RAM

    Hello

    I have a Toshiba laptop Satellite L30 113.
    It has 512 MB of RAM and therefore struggled to run Windows Vista, so I bought another 1 GB of RAM.
    It's DDR2 553 MHZ (PC4200.

    The problem I have is that the laptop does not recognize both DIMMs, i.e. the old 512 MB and the new 1 GB when they are in the whole PC. I tried the two DIMM individually in both slots and there is no problem, but when I install both the system sees just 1 GB. I tried the DIMMs around two ways but without success.

    Did I miss something?
    They should be the same size as in the bad old days?
    What is going on?

    Thank you

    Adam

    > I tried the two DIMM individually in both slots and there is no problem, but when I install both the system sees just 1 GB
    Seems that the two RAM modules are not completely compatible...
    I've read several times on these issues and to be honest it s are not uncommon

    I advise you to buy two identical RAM modules ad then to try again

    I'm afraid there is no other solution for your problem of m.

  • Satellite 220cds: Win98SE does not recognize ethernet cardbus cards

    Hello

    can someone tell me why Win98se does not recognize my toshiba cardbus ethernet card?

    also, where can I find drivers?

    I really hope that someone can give me the answer!

    Best regards

    computerfreak

    Hello
    First, you must install the driver. I guess that you don't have the installation disc. You need to download a folder of your choice or to where you can find it, it may come as an exe file or a zip file. Install the driver and restarts. Once the driver is installed, you can insert the adapter. Windows98SE automatically installs the driver from your hardware, if a version conflict is displayed, select 'Yes' to use the new file and continue. Resart your computer.
    To find the driver you need, go to driverguide.com and register here, it's free, all you need is a valid email address to activate your account. Once you register with driverguide, check your e-mail and click on the validation link, it'll take you back to the website and you should already be connected, jump offers so that access you the page "welcome to driverguide", scroll down to the driver search wizard, choose your product type of device, in this case , NIC, you should be able to navigate from there and find your driver.
    Good luck!

  • Satellite A200-1CR does not recognize the module of RAM 2 GB

    Hello

    I have a problem with the extension of the RAM.
    I have the Satellite A200-1CR with 2 x 512 MB of RAM.

    Now, I bought 1 x 2 GB RAM (DDR2 PC2-5300 (667 MHz); PA3513S-1M2G) but the BIOS and Windows recognizes only 1 GB.
    When I add 1x512mo to the second slot, the system recognizes 1.5 GB of RAM.
    Where is the problem?

    What should I do to make it see 2 GB?

    Paula

    Hello

    I think the answer is very simple.
    Satellite A200-1CR can be upgraded up to 2 GB of RAM.
    This means that you can use max 1 GB of RAM in one slot
    You used 2 GB of RAM and this module does not seem to be compatible
    In my opinion if you want to use 2 GB of RAM then you can buy 2 x 1 GB RAM modules
