Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A205-S5823 Notebook ?

I purchased 2x 2GB DDR2 rams for my laptop (toshiba A205-s5823) but only one will work in the slots with a 1 GB in addition. I've tried every variation in both the slots. What am I doing wrong?


Answers :

Your laptop can only accommodate a maximum of 2GB of physical memory. If you are running Windows Vista, you can get a little extra memory by using the "ReadyBoost" feature that is built into the OS. I have done that in the past and it works well for me.

Here's a link to Kingston's (a good memory mfg) memory guide for your model laptop:
