Installed PNY 512 DDR PC2700 Optima memory, recommended by Staples. on to Toshiba P35 S609. System doesn't indicate that memory has increased. Type "chkdisk" into "run" message says doesn't recognize command.Upon first install system shut it self off every 5 seconds. After removng original and new memory and replacing system started and is slightly faster but shows only 512MG while should show 1024.
