Upgrade memory for Satellite A10 S811 PSA10E
I want to upgrade the memory on my old laptop, I found the manual and read a bit into it.
It apparently uses DDR PC2100 (266 Mhz) features of two memory slots and only allows that up to 512 mb modules.
Is it possible to use modules bigger or faster.
I hope that the low speed and size has something to do with the time that it was produced before more large modules have been as prevalent as they are today.
Also how many pins is there on the modules, I guess that DDR modules for laptops are different from those of desktop computers.
Toshiba Satellite A10
Model No.: PSA10E-0ZJ57-DK
Any help is appreciated.
Of course, you can use larger modules.
Chipset supports up to 1 GB of RAM.
Fastest modules (PC2700 or PC3200) should not be a problem, but I think that they will not work with the speed of the PC2100.
The part number for 2 x 512 MB RAM is PA3164U - 1 M 51
Hi, I have an a10 with celeron 2, 4 GHz,
is it possible to change the mobile processor for a P4 or Intel?
I've looked everywhere and has had no response from toshiba France
Sorry, it is not possible to change the processor for a laptop computer.
You can only change things like the memory or HARD drive.
First of all thank all those who will answer this one. I have a friend with this odd model of Satellite A10 S811 and its Windows I screwed it all up. He lost his CD so I can't just him, I have the CD to install Windows XP from my old machine, but I don't have drivers for help. And on this site I can not simply to find the drivers for this model? Am that I missling something or what?
So the question is: where to find drivers Windows XP for Satellite A10 S811?
Please ask your friend if hs A10 is a European model for laptop (I think it is). If visit Toshiba download page and simply download and install Yes al list drivers, tools and utilities for Satellite A10.
Satellite A10-s811 multimedia audio driver & driver PCI modem.
Thanks for the review.
What about this page from Toshiba:
This is an official page of the European driver Toshiba and you should find all the drivers needed and required.
I recommend you to focus on the audio driver and the driver of modem ;)
I am trying to upgrade my ram to 128 on the laptop. After following the instructions for the instillation, that I turned the laptop on to find that it was slower than before and that the new ram had not registered as 128, and always thought it was 64 in someone can help me solve this ir is there anything I can do?
Maybe you used the memory modules bad.
As far as I know that you can upgrade memory for max 192 MB
The 64 MB has been installed in an internal memory and cannot be deleted.
I found these compatible modules:
PA3003U - 1 M 03 32 MB
PS3004U - 1 M 06 64 MB
PS3005U - 1 M 12 128 MB
I have a Satellite L30-134, which seems to work pretty slowly - I think that due to the large amount of photos and music from itunes.
I wonder which is the best way to solve - buy a memory upgrade (no idea how to change memory well) or get an external hard drive?
And if I change the memory I'll lose what is already saved on the laptop?
I agree with Ganz most HARD drive will not improve performance but increase the disk space available HARD, it would be you can store more music and picture on HARD drive ;) files
Upgrade memory also would not provide a performance gain of course performance could be a little better because most of the things would be handled directly in memory and not in time on the HARD drive, but generally it s not really noticeable.
In any case if you want to improve memory, check this:
You must use DDR2 533 MHz (PC2-4200) 200 - PIN SODIMM
I have a 1800-412 Satellite which becomes very slow so I intend to upgrade the memory. I've been hunting around a few different sites to see what I can buy, and there seem to be differing opinions whose memory actually fits my laptop:
Site Web of Kingston said that I'm going to need their KTT-SO100/256
.. .but another site suggested the KTT-S0815/256
Both websites claim that this is the chip that works.
I have also looked on the Toshiba site and found the part PA3069U - 1 M 25 number is the one I'm looking for, but the chips I found for sale online recommended for my laptop have different numbers for Toshiba...
Help! I'm confused!
What exactly should I buy? There are actually several different chips that work or are some of these sites try to sell me a bad?
Thanks for your help,
I found the information that your device can handle with 1 024 MB max memory compatible Module is PC100 256 MB (PA3069U - 1 M 25). This module has been tested and it will be recognized correctly.
I recommend you to use the right and tested a title less expensive but maybe not tested one.
Hi, I want to spend my memory (2x256mb 266 mhz).
In my view, what is of 266 mhz PC2100. I can't PC2700 (333 mhz) or PC3200 (400 mhz) for my laptop Satellite A25-S207?
I'll buy one or two probably 1 GB of memory.
Don't know what them to restrict my upgrade of the laptop.
You can use PC2700 DIMM´s and your machine is expandable up to 1 GB of main memory (2 x 512 MB PC2100/PC2700). So feel free to upgrade.
I think it would be best to use original toshiba modules because they are known to work perfectly in machines toshiba... ;)
Is there an installation guide for memory upgrades?
Recommend where to get the memory chips Toshiba?
Can you please tell us what Satellite you have exactly?
I ask this question because I also have laptop Satellite L: Satellite L300. The more manual, you will find information about RAM upgrade and photo live what you have to remove and other important information.
Theoretically you can buy each manufacturing modules but I recommend high quality of Kingston for example modules. I still only good experience with these modules.
Can I add 512 MB to 256 MB of memory already on my laptop? And also what is the name of the memory supported by Satellite Pro L10.
Your L10 has two available memory slots and will support up to 2 GB of RAM (2 X 1 GB modules).
Check the following URL for details of compatible modules for your laptop: -.
I want to upgrade the memory of my satellite 2450-401: as what is written in the manual, it can support a maximum of 1 GB memory (512 MB each slot), but according to www.crucial.com it would accept up to 2 GB (1 GB each slot). Actually notebook chipset (intel 845) can support 2 GB of memory, but I'm a bit confused: is the information declared in the toshiba manual correct? Or can I install 2 GB?
I thank in advance
I have to be honest to you and in this case, I think that the information in the manual of Toshiba I correct. It is possible that this can work, but you must be careful with this. If there is warranty of curcal.com that it will work correctly you can buy it. In the other direction to install just the size given in the manual of Toshiba. It will work correctly because it has already been tested.
I use a satellite L20 pro - PSL25E. That this PSL25E means in terms of satellite pro L20 - 102 until xxx. On the support site to keep just the numbers but not this alphanumeric expression. I need this in order to select the upgrade module suitable.
If this can be answered, could someone tell me which module to upgrade should I choose in addition to the existing 512 MB?
Thanks in advance
It of nice that you have found the laptop model after your own investigation.
However, in my opinion the portable Satellite Pro L20 all support the same kind of memory, if it s L20-259 Pro or Pro L20-174
The units are supported on these modules:
DDR2 400/533 256 MB (PA3389U - 1 M 25)
512 MB DDR2-400/533 (PA3412U - 1 M 51)
Hello all, first time poster who need help please...
My Satellite P15 a ram of 512 MB (2x256bm) installed and I'm looking to put 1 GB of ram in each of the two slots to bring it up to support 2 GB maximum. At first I didn't know what kind of memory, but I ran a search on scanner system crucial .com and discovered that I need modules SODIMM PC2700 DDR of the 200-pin variety, I think. I opened the flap beside the heatsink / fan and found the existing memory sticks, but I'm amazed how difficult, they are out. I can't to the move and obviously I am wary of the application of force - anyone know of an easy way to remove the sticks of memory through the bottom of the laptop or I should go while removing the keyboard etc. There is no guides on the net can I find?
Also, as the sticks of 2 x 1 GB is quite an expense, I want to make sure that I understand. I was looking at this point on ebay:
and it seems that the kind of thing I'm after, although I'm not too sure about the size of config chipset cited because I'm not particularly sure that requires this laptop, P15. Is this ebay item the kind of thing that will work in the P15
Sorry it's got quite lengthy, but I really want to do things and I don't have a lot of expertise in the field.
Thanks for any help and advice.
I think the memory of ebay will work in your machine.
It is very easy to remove the module from memory normally.
After removing the plate on the bottom, just to spread legs, who hold the module at his side. The memory will pop up, and then you can extract it.
I am a new user and I'm on a Toshiba Sat U-200-115. I want to upgrade, and I intend to do an upgrade to 4 GB.
What I want to know, although it said this laptop supports the upgrade to 4 Gig, but this model use a DDR2 533 MHz memory. Considering that since the Web from Toshiba site, I see only 1 slot memory of Gig available with this clock speed and a 2 Gig DDR2 available with clock speed of 667 MHz. What I want to know, if I want to upgrade to 4 GB memory with clock speed more high clock (667 instead of, 533) would work on this machine?
It depends on the chipset of your Satellite U200-115.
If chipset supports 4 GB of memory and BIOS and Vista supports 4 GB of memory too, then you can go use the full 4 GB of RAM.
If the FSB takes care also of 667 Mhz then modules of memory would also go wit full 667 Mhz speed.
If the chipset supports only 533 Mhz then the chipset would slow the 667 Mhz module and memory would go only to 533 Mhz.
So what you have to do is check what chipset is equipped in the U200-115.
Full details and specifications of chipset you can find on the page of Intel.
But generally, there is no big difference between the modules of 533 Mhz and 667 Mhz modules 667 Mhz turns a little faster but you won't see everything boosts performance
I would upgrade ram memory up to the maximum limit of 1 GB.
I found these memory, Kingston:
KTT3311/512 512 MB DDR SODIMM
KTT3614/512 512 MB DDR SODIMM
Could someone tell me these memory well works with Satellite 2450-101?
Yes, the Satellite S2450 supports max 1 GB.
The laptop needs RAM PC2100, but you can also buy PC2700 or PC3200. It's down in a compatible way.
So I think you could buy Kingston RAM. I've had RAM Kingston too and never had any problems with it.
