Answers :

These are the things you can do in order to successfully upgrade your laptop memory.

  1. Remove the plastic cover at the base of your laptop to reveal the memory modules installed. But beware, some laptops have warranty seals in this area and you might just void your laptop's warranty if you do so.
  2. \012
  3. Determine how many RAM modules are installed in your laptop. Based on CNET reviews, your model has 1.0Gig of DDR2 SDRAM (667 MHz) installed and the maximum capacity is 4.0 Gig.
  4. \012
  5. To do an upgrade, you have a lot of options and these would actually be based on your pre-installed RAM.
  6. \012
  7. If you have 1Gig in 1 RAM module, you can go up to 2 Gig by Adding another 1 Gig of RAM
  8. \012
  9. I doubt if you can go for 3 Gig in a 1Gig + 2Gig, with this, I advise you to bring your laptop to a Toshiba store and let their tech install it so that you will only pay for what is upgrade is applicable to your laptop.
  10. \012
  11. If you like to go for 4Gig, then you will have to buy and install 2 RAM modules of 2Gig making your 1 Gig a spare.
Try your luck.
This is real easy underneath you will see a large flap undo the screws hold it, and remove, you will see the RAM slotted into the socket,simply obtain the correct RAM for your laptop, and slot it in besides, or instead of, replace cover, and reboot, it will automatically be detected and used. If you have done it before then you are on your way to being an expert.. Oh we always say and "X" is an unknown quantity, and a "Spurt" is "Drip" under pressure...Xpert... < Joke.
