Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105 S2236 Notebook ?

Would a 2x 1gb ram upgrade be better for a toshiba a105-s2236 or would a 1x2gb ram upgrade be better


Answers :

Some motherboards support "dual-channel" mode -- when it's time to write 8 bits to the RAM, 4 bits will be written to one chip, and 4 bits will be written to the other chip. Obviously, the time to write 4 bits, in "parallel", is much less than the time to write 8 bits, in "serial", to just one chip.

\015\012So, two chips will _never_ be "slower" than one chip, and might be "twice" as fast.
That computer supports dual channel memory. You would be better to install memory in matching pairs. (2x1GB) On the hardware page of my website www.rfcomputer.biz there is a link to Crucial memory. Just put in your make and model and they will make recomendations
