Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite 2805-S302 Notebook ?

Getting my pc to recognize new memcard?

\015 How do I get my system to recognize and accept the maximum supported memory instead of the 128mb for good? I just installed a basic 256mb card and got my system to read it ( for accesories needing that amount of memory) but when it shuts down and fires up, it won't continue, says there is a problem with file "fat32" . Do I need to or would it help to rerun a windows boot program like winXP or upgrade to winVista?\015

Answers :

You should go ahead and reinstall windows and convert to NTFS. NTFS is more stable than fat 32. So save all your files and reinstall it. This should cure your problems regarding your windows recognizing the extra memory
