Satellite Pro L - how to get the 2 GB RAM recognized?

Hi all, I'm new to the forum and I cannot get my laptop to recognize kingston DDR2 2x1GB two identical cards.

I first had 512 MB card and replaced, which, with the cards Go too 1 booted up and system show only 896 MB so asumed 1 card was defective. 1 remove maps and 1 left in the slot in the bottom, rebooted and still 896 MB, rearranged 1 with the other card 1 GB and initialized and same 896 MB or something. If the two cards into the lower slot but not work together so I thought then perhaps the top slot was not working.
I tried both cards 1 GB by themselves in the top housing and both show 896 MB.

So I then tried the original 512 MB with 1 the1GB cards and weak a system here is reading 1.37 g of ram. My question is how can I get both the Rams from 1 GB to start working so bed 2 GB system?


Hey Buddy,

Before you start a lengthy discussion, you should post which model of laptop, you use. Maximum use of RAM depends on the motherboard, chipset and BIOS.

But now that it sounds like that the modules are not compatible to your laptop.

  • Satellite Pro A100 - how to get the Wlan connection works


    I'm a total beginner, and my problem is I can get a connection without wire only when I'm really close to my BT hub.
    My son has a laptop and gets a good connection anywhere in the House and even outside.

    He thinks I have a dodgy wireless adapter, this could be the problem?
    Can I fix it myself?

    Maybe download a new driver?
    Any suggestions would be much apreciated.



    Your ad is not really useful.
    I mean that there is no detail about your problem
    You should first check if the laptop supports the wireless network card.
    This can be done in the Device Manager.

    Usually the WLan card must appear in Manager devices-> network adapters.
    If it s are not it is that the WLan card is not built in or the driver WLan is not installed. If the WLan driver is not installed then you should see yellow exclamation (or unknown device).

    But if the wireless network adapter is listed correctly then you should check if the WLan notebooks have been enabled. In order to activate the WLan you have to press FN + F8 and you put the switch on IT until the small LED flash.

    Finally, to configure the WiFi connection (right name WLan, encryption settings, etc...)

  • Satellite Pro A300 - how to get the sound on the TV with VGA cable?

    Hello world

    I have a real problem connecting my Satellite Pro A300 to my Samsung HDTV.
    The video works fine - I used a VGA connection on the laptop and the TV.

    The problem I have is healthy.
    I want the sound either also come from the TV. I tried a jack of 3.5 m from the headphone jack of the laptop to a red and white connection RCA audio on the TV, but it doesn't seem to work.

    Does anyone have any ideas or advice?
    I need of additional drivers, etc., or do some settings need to be changed etc etc.


    Normally, to use the 3.5 mm jack plug in the headphones, you need an adapter cable.
    At one end, it has a 3.5 mm jack and the other side to connect red and white audio RCA connections.
    Here is an example of what I mean:

    I m using such an adapter without any problem. You n t need an additional driver, or something more. It's the same as if you were using a helmet. :)

  • Satellite Pro P300 - how to get the original without media image?


    I received a Satellite Pro P300 and there the for win xp recovery disk, I would go back to the installation of Vista pre installed if possible.

    The recovery on the hard disk partition is not available, so I guess, that it cannot be recovered. Is it possible to buy an original image?

    Liam is just that Win 7 is better than Vista OS.
    So if you have the ability to install Win 7 I recommend doing this instead of Vista.

    However, the Toshiba recovery disc contain only the Vista OS.

  • Satellite Pro A60 - how to get the recovery CD?


    I have a Satellite A60 and my utils / driver disk is not in use.

    Is there anywhere I can download or there at - it somewhere that I can buy one?

    Especially the "FN" shortcut key will not work. I tried to download the utilities from the page drivers but its defo not to play ball.

    Any help on that would be great.



    I found a new page of Toshiba.


    It s an online store of Media Backup of Toshiba Europe and you should be able to order your CD of restoration on this page.

    _Regarding your FN order issue: _
    If you are using Win XP on your laptop, you must install the Hotkey utilities for display devices and Hotkey Utility get the FN buttons work.

    One thing is very important; If you install your operating system manually, please ensure you install drivers for Toshiba and utility in the right order. On the Toshiba driver page, you can find the installation instruction txt file and you would find the mentioned order insall. Follow this all in the driver installation procedure!

  • Satellite Pro L40 - how to enable the WLan using ConfigFree

    Can you help me?

    My English is bad I do not end.

    The question is:
    My computer is a Toshiba Satellite Pro L40 and I use the ConfigFree for the wireless, but it seems that the WiFi network is disabled.

    Help please!
    I want to know what's wrong

    Thank you!!


    Your wireless network card is recognized correctly in the Device Manager, or you may notice a yellow exclamation?
    Her check first because otherwise, you can get the WLAN to work.

    In addition, you can activate WLAN with the material on the laptop switch which must be set on and the FN + F8 key combination.
    Check it!

    After this Free Config should find your WLAN router if you are in the range of that.

    I think that it of difficult to say why it doesn t work but maybe this card is not compatible.

    By the way: do other FN keys FN + F8 work or simply not?
