Upgrade memory for Satellite U200: are supported with 667 mhz modules?

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?

Thank you.



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

  • Upgrade memory for Satellite A100 - 02 M

    My laptop has 1 GB of memory originally and I want to upgrade to 2 GB.

    I've identified the 2 x 1 GB memory PC2 DDR2 (667 MHz) modules that I need but am confused if I should choose module type PA3512U-1M1G or PA3512S-1M1G.

    Two of these pieces are available in parts of Toshiba, but Kingston lists only the correct PA3512U-1M1G for my laptop (A100 - 02 M).

    I imagine that Toshiba has more information on compatibility and specifications of the laptop you can use both of them. Now, it's your choice.

    Hi Ben

    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

  • Satellite A100 - is compatible Ram 667 Mhz module

    My question is if the memory module PA3512S-1M1G (bus 667 MHz) will be fully compatible with my A100-906 and won't have any problematic cooperation with my 1 GB ram PA3511U-1M1G (bus 533 MHz) base.

    Toshiba site shows that PA3512S-1M1G is not compatible with A100s, while most of the sites of memory insist it is.

    Can someone elucidate me with knowledge?

    Thank you

    Generally you can use also the 667 Mhz modules in the laptop A100.
    But the fact is that if the FSB is that only 533 Mhz then your 667 Mhz module will only work at 553 Mhz.

    In my view, that modules should not be discarded then, either you use both 553 Mhz or 667 Mhz. But I advise to use the 553 Mhz due to the FSB value.

  • Upgrade memory for Satellite Pro L20

    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)

  • Upgrade memory for Satellite L30-134

    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

  • 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.

    My laptop:
    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

  • Upgrades memory for Satellite 1800 412

    HI -.

    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.

  • Upgrade memory for satellite 2450-401

    Hi guyz,
    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

    Hi Luca

    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.

    Good bye

    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.

  • Upgrade memory for Satellite P15: how to install it?

    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:

    PageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem http://CGI.eBay.co.uk/New-2GB-2-X-1gb-PC2700-333-SODIMM-Laptop-RAM-2700-1G_W0QQitemZ230079253310QQihZ013QQcategoryZ172QQss

    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.

    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.

  • Re: upgrade memory for Satellite 2450-101

    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?

    Thank you

    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.

  • Upgrade memory for Satellite Pro L10

    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.


    Hi Fernando,

    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: -.



  • Upgrade memory for Satellite Pro L20 problem

    I buy a 1 GB, 200-pin SODIMM crucial (marked on the module as 1 GB 2Rx16 PC2-4200 s-444-12-A0) and added to the existing module 256 MB (marked as 1Rx16 256 MB PC2 4200 s-444-12-C3)

    I can't get the 1 GB module memory I bought the work with the existing 256 MB module. The PC will recognize the 256 MB module in each slot and it will also recognize 1 GB memory module in the other location. However, when both modules are installed the PC doesn't recognize any order they are installed in the module 1 GB. The essential tool memory online seems to think that a slot is empty when it scans the laptop, even if both slots are filled. The BIOS also reports that only 1 GB is present when both modules are mounted.

    No idea how I can get the two recognized modules?


    Hello John

    I assume that there is a compatibility issue. If possible, try to get the 1 GB of Kingston RAM module or module recommended by Toshiba.

    If you have time take a look here

    By the way: 1 GB of RAM is sufficient for your laptop L20. In my opinion with 1 GB of RAM, you can work on this model of laptop.
