Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A15-S127 Notebook ?

Memory i just added memory to my toshiba a15,(trying to upgrade the RAM) when i go into my computer additional RAM does not show. What am i doing wrong?

Hi Blevnthyself,
\015\012
\015\012First make sure the ram is fully seated. I know the Toshiba requires a lot of pressure to get the ram to seat, properly. Also, try using just the new ram, to boot. If it fails to boot, the ram is either bad, the ram stick is not compatible, or you have reached your ram limit!

My Inspiron 1525 does not recognize the memory I added. It had 3GB, I removed the 1GB and added a 2GB.

I think when I put in the new one, when it booted up and said the memory configuration has changed and gave me some options, I chose the wrong one. Please help!
