Tecra 8200 recognizes only one 128MB memory module

Q: Tecra 8200 recognizes only one 128MB memory module

Hi,

I have a Tecra 8200 p3 (850 i think) that currently has 2x 128MB RAM.

The laptop only registers 128MB, so I think one of the sockets may be faulty.

I understand the maximum memory the tecra 8200 will address is 512MB, but can this be in a single Dimm, or must it be in 2x256?

Thanks

Ian

A: Tecra 8200 recognizes only one 128MB memory module

Hi

You can use 2 x 256MB memory modules 144-Pin PC133 SODIMM or 144-Pin PC100 SODIMM

A:What memory Tecra 8200 uses

Hi

I found this page about memory modules for Tecra 8200:
http://www.orcalogic.co.uk/asp/prodtype.asp?prodtype=5841&ft=m&st=3

It looks like the Tecra 8200 would support max. 512MB and you could use the 144-Pin PC133 SODIMM or 144-Pin PC100 SODIMM memory modules!

Hope I could help a little bit!

Hello!

How to remove the memory module?

Get the following message and for me this means that one of the modules is broken:

Memory Error
Address = 00034000H
Read Date = 28034000H
Write Data = 00034000H

For my opinion the computer should boot again when I remove the broken memory slice?

A:Tecra R10 - How to remove memory module?

Hi

You can remove easily the memory modules.
I think the bay is placed at the bottom of the unit.
You have to remove the screw securing the bay and you will get a access to the module.

Here is a video how to do this on another notebook Satellite L500. But the procedure is not very different on Tecra R10

A:Tecra 8200 Identity?

The reason why you cannot find your machine is because you?re searching in the wrong section.
Your machine is a little bit older and doesn?t belongs to the new generation of toshiba notebooks. To find the drivers and the BIOS update, you will have to choose Archive in the Drivers Download section.

Here?s some short description to find your machine in the drivers section:

Go to the Drivers Download section and choose:
"Product type" -> Archive
"Family" -> Tecra-Archive
"Product series" -> Tecra 8xxx
"Model" -> Tecra 8200
"Short model number" -> PT820E

Afterwards choose the operating system where you need drivers. The BIOS update is included in the driver list.

Please go to Toshiba download page again and under *PRODUCT TYPE* choose option *ARCHIVE*.

Hi All,

I have a Toshiba Tecra 8200 that constantly freezes up. I find that it mainly occurs when I physically move the laptop. Any suggestions?
 

A:Toshiba Tecra 8200 Freezing

When it freezes, do you have a mouse physically attached to it? If so, possibly a defective mouse. Otherwise, I'd have to think a loose wire someplace or you're creating a horrendous amount of static when you're moving. Just a few avenues to take.

Okay this is probably a stupid question but I have a Tecra 8200 .
Do I have to buy something else for the wireless connection to work?

A:Tecra 8200 wireless question

Hi

This question is not stupid ;) because the Tecra 8200 was equipped optional with the internal minPCI WLan card. This could be a little bit confusing.
So in some Tecra 8200 units the WLan is already included and in some Tecra?s the minPCI WLan card must be installed firstly to use the WLan technology.

You should check your device manager if an WLan module is listed in ?Network adepter?
If it?s already listed then you don?t need an additional WLan card.
If it?s not listed, then you will have to upgrade the machine with the minPCI WLan card or with a USB WLan stick.

As far as I know the PA3070U-1MPC Wireless LAN mini-PCI card coudl be compatible with your notebook.

Now it would take 3 DVD's to do this i presume .ie having to sequentially update the BIOS to the latest.,

Your Tecra is simply Tecra 8200 and there is no other model number.
Drivers you can find on Toshiba download page under http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com > Support & Downloads but under Product type you must choose option ARCHIVE.

Then you will find option for Tecra 8200.

Hi there,

I mean thats normal, you have a notebook which has some powersaving features. Just a question besides: had it the same behaviour before you exchanged the battery?? Or did you recently installed some new drivers/tools/software??

Otherwise I would suggest you to go to the Toshiba Drivers Download site and download the latest powersaver for your machine to adjust the screen brightness.

Just give it a try if not already did and it should work.

My Tecra 8200 PT820E has at some time been formatted minus the Tosh. control software. Hand book says go to Control Panel/power saving and alter screen brilliance there. That does not exist on my machine.

The problem is when on battery power the brilliance level drops to an unreadable level. Is there any other way to increase the brightness level?

Thanks.

You can do this very easy by using FN+F7 to raise brightness level.
And I think it is supposed to be the Toshiba Power Saver where you have to look for that option.

This little utility can handle behaviour for power saving modes and there is an option how much display is darkened.

I have tried to increase the amount of memory my computer has but am running into some issues. It says I can use 1066/800/667/533/400 for which there are 4 slots each of which have a led light next to them. They light up in either green for good or red for not so good. Anyway I have a total of 3 2gb memory cards (PC5400) but I always seem to get a red light on which ever one I put in the third slot....

A:XFX GeForce 8200 AMD socket 940 memory

As XFX has a really annoying system for hiding whatever minimal amount of info they have for this board of yours, it is hard to give you too much help.

The general specs for the GF 8200 chipset allow for easily 6 GB of RAM. If I interpret your question correctly, you are having trouble with the 3rd slot only and not the others. If so, don't use the troublesome slot and use the 4th slot. If that doesn't work either, your board is probably starting to fail, but then again, your board is probably starting to fail. It may well be time to move away from an AM2+ board to an AM3 or AM3+. You may also have to change your CPU and/or RAM but then again you may well still be able to get a compatible board such as this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...esult=True&SrchInDesc=ddr2&Page=1&PageSize=20

Prices are not very high and will probably only be available for the next 6 months or so as all these boards have been phased out by their makers. This is the not-so-bad news. The good news is that you will be able to use all your other parts with them.

How much memory can i fit in a Tecra M10-1CN and should it be in two 200 Pin SO DIMM DDR2 PC2-6400 800MHz modules

A:How much memory can i fit in a Tecra M10-1CN?

Hi

The memory expand possibility depends on the chipset of the motherboard
The Tecra M10 supports the Mobile Intel(R) GM45 Express chipset? and this chipset supports max DDR2 800MHz 8GB RAM

So first of all you can use 2 x 4GB RAM modules and secondly the memory speed is limited to 800MHZ.

Even if you would use faster modules i.e. 1033Mhz the FSB would clock down the speed to 800Mhz? so it?s not worth to use faster modules than DDR2 800Mhz

Dear Sirs,
I recently put together a system that consists of:

Motherboard - Soyo K7VTA VIA KT133 chipset 200 FSB
CPU - AMD Athlon Thunderbird 900 Mhz
Memory - 1 Micron 256 MB, PC133
Hard Drive - IBM 40 GB ATA 66 7200 RPM
OS - Windows 2000 SP 2
Video - Gigabyte Geoforce2 MX400 64MB

This system has been running fine and without incident until I recently purchased an addition memory module. The memory module is identified on the chips as, Siemens HYB39S256400T-8(B). It was advertised as 512 MB Unregistered, PC133. I installed the memory into the next available DIMM socket (3 onboard). When I rebooted the computer several things happened.

1.) The PC booted through BIOS where the memory was tested and recognized (786,432 total memory) them memory and began to load Windows and then suddenly rebooted. This occured over and over.
2.) After booting into BIOS setup (Memory was recognized in BIOS) I exited and when the machine rebooted I received a STOP error.
STOP error = The ACPI BIOS in this system is not fully compliant with the ACPI specification. 0x000000A5, 0X00000011, 0X00000007, 0XEB8680C0, 0X0100000C

I then removed the new memory module and the machine booted normally.

Can you please offer me some suggestions.

Thank You,
Kelly Rudnick

A:Memory Module from .........

What happens if you put just the new module in? Any problems (could be a bad module)? If not:
Do you know if the new memory is ECC or non-ECC? What about the original memory?
Also, do you know if the original memory is also unregistered/unbuffered as opposed to registered/buffered?
If they are of different types, they may not play well together.

Make and model of the laptop would be useful. You can also go on sites like Kingston ,use their configurator and you will find exactly the memory you need.

Hi, i was just checking out a site that sells memory upgrades... http://www.comptick.com/cq-m266-1gb.html

I noticed that theyre selling 1 GB laptop memory for hp (it doesnt mention two 512mb sticks).
Im using a compaq m2000 laptop, is it possible to just buy a single 1GB memory stick to place into one slot or would i have to buy 2 x512mb? how many bytes can each slot hold?

thankz
 

A:1GB memory module?

The max ram for that model laptop is 1GB so the safest most reliable way to go would be to purchase 2x 512MB. read this page from 4allmemory.com

Hi All,

Have ordered some RAM to upgrade my Toshiba Tecra Z40-A, but can't for the life of me find anything online of where to insert it.

I have installed RAM previously under the keyboard (couple of clips holding it in) and on others, a small covering on the bottom, but the Z40 doesn't seem to have anywhere easily accessible.

Has anyone upgraded RAM on the Z40? Or is this a big no no, due to warranty?

Thanks,
Lance

A:Tecra Z40-A - Upgrading Memory (RAM)

Memory upgrade on this Tecra model is a bit complicated and, I think, should not be done by notebook owner. For some models Ram upgrade can be done by notebook owner and exact instructions how to do this is offered in user?s manuals document, but not for your Tecra.

For full access to RAM modules bottom cover must be removed and it can be done by service people only. If you do this alone you can cancel valid warranty.
I recommend you to contact nearest Toshiba service provider in your country and ask for help or advice.

Hi all
This is my first post here - so greetings to all.
This problem is about memory compatibility with several Tecra A11 laptops.
I have two - a A11-12F, and a A11-1F4.
Both computers run well with a pair of Kingston 1333 2x2gb=4gb ram sticks.
Recently I have bought two separate pairs of 2x4gb sticks - neither works - both reboot after seconds, and they don't get more than 10 seconds into memtest before rebooting.
The first pair - which I had bought but now returned - were Samsung 1600 2x4gb. I don't have the model number because they are now sent back. I thought they were too fast or incompatible.
So I bought a pair of Kingston 1333 KTD-L3BS/4G - hoping they would run because my other Kingston 1333 sticks work (even though the Toshiba specs say 1066). Again they did the crashing and rebooting after seconds.
What are the varibles here?
I can't get these specs from Toshiba, and various ram sites like MrMemory or Crucial recommend different things:
1.35v or 1.5v?
C11 or C9?
R1 or R2 (what kinds of chip layouts on the sticks?)
I thought it might be bios - maybe they can't recognise 8gb - but I have having trouble with the Windows-based bios updater, and it didn't work.
I am a bit perturbed now, because I have now bought 2 separate memory pairs, and I really thought the Kingstons would work.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Please don't simply recommend that I buy memory of a Toshiba part number, because I'm sure a major-brand ram will work.

You have a dv6t-7000 model and you have a bad memory module. This is a little fuzzy but watchable. See at 2:50 into the video how there are 2 modules. Try each module by itself in each slot and see if you can boot the machine and also run the test. That should isolate the bad memory module and all you would need to do is replace it. Will also diagnose if a slot is bad if modules work in one slot but neither works in the other slot.  Post back your fuindings and we can go from there.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xnw3lnSMXEg

Hi I have recently purchased inspiron 5567 laptop and I think I would need to add more RAM to it.
in India I don't find anywhere on the Dell official site, an option to purchase a memory module.
So I wanted to know from where I can purchase a compatible RAM for Inspiron 5567? (do I have to look for any specific brand for memory module?)
Is it okay to purchase from a local computer store or from online store like Amazon or Flipkart?
Secondly, do I have to take my laptop to the service center to replace the module or I can replace it at my home itself?
If I replace it at my own, will it affect my laptop's warranty?

It'll take up to 2X8G DDR4-19200 modules; yes, you can purchase the memory and install it yourself (simply requires removing the base cover).

Sorry I am dim, but I can't figure out if the memory I have will work with the mobo i have.

mobo: Asus A7V400-MX
(from the supoprt manual: supports up to 2GB unbuffered PC2700/PC2100/PC1600 non-ECC DDR SDRAM)

Memory: 1 x 512 DDR 400 PC3200 UDIMM made by elixir.

I know the 'PC' numbers don't match, but i was assured twice by the tech guy that the memory is backwards-compatible with the mobo specs.

Unfortunately I am having problems with the new mobo, which may be due to the new memory, I'm not sure!!

The full problem I'll describe if I get past this issue. Don't want to bore you with it all stright up at first.

A:Does this memory module fit this mobo?

Yes it should work. It will just run at most 2700 (333MHz) or slower
instead of 3200 (400MHz), depending on the CPU FSB and your settings.

A:Memory Module question

Usually, faster speeds are OK (it will just run at the motherboard speed or the speed of any other RAM module also installed, whichever is the slower)

But if you install slower RAM (2100) then all RAM, including any original module that may be faster will run at the slower speed.

I have not experienced issues using faster RAM, but very rarely timing issues may arise and it will fail to work. But it's rare.

Helloes mates, ive got the following problem thats been annoying me for the last couple days.

I just bought brand new computer parts and im trying to get them to work together.
Ive gotten to a point where motherboard displays an error "C1" continuously(this motherboard has a small led display that shows error messages). Even tried resettin CMOS, changing places of memory modules, only using one module etc. but i still can't get it to work.
Also the memory modules seem to generate alot of heat during that time that motherboard is stuck at C1 phase. I haven't had the balls to keep it going for more than 5 minutes since at that point memory modules heat build-up seems to be too much.

Motherboards manual says for C1 code that:
Detect memory
-Auto-detection of DRAM size, type and EEC
-Auto-detection of L2 cache (socket 7 or below)
System:
Motherboard: Abit AB9 Pro Intel 965 LGA775 ATX
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600, 2,40Ghz, Socket 775, FSB 1066, 4MB Cache

A:RAM Memory Module Upgrade

Pretty sure you'll be good with 240 pin DDR2 modules. Best to install in pairs, so keep that in mind. While newegg isn't guaranteed to give you the best price, they've always been reliable wherever I am in the world when it comes to shipping.

Newegg.com - Computer Hardware,Memory,Desktop Memory,240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM

Those are the modules for your board sorted by rating. I personally have Mushkin brand in my tower, but I'm not partial to any brand. Check out the reviews. Maybe someone else here has the same mobo as you and can offer some first hand experience on what you should get. Good luck.

Also for future reference

You can go there and find the proper ram size/timings and then use that info to do a search on newegg or your favorite shopping site.

According to them here's the ram you need (http://www.crucial.com/store/listpar...AREA-51%207500)

The size of the module shouldn't matter as long as they are exactly the same specs. If you think the heap problem is caused by memory download and run memtestx86 for several hours at least.

You can also check in event viewer (type event vwr in search) for log entries. Go to windows logs>application tab (and system)and look for errors (red in the left hand colum) relating to the problem. When found note the event ID and source codes and relay them to us

Hello,
I am trying to reformat a friends computer. It is a real mess, so I do not want to clean it out. But when I try to run the xp-setup, it gives me a bsod with different messages, all including setupdd.sys. I can boot normally, setup loads files, I am asked what I want to do, press enter to setup, accept license agreement. When it asks me where I want to set up windwos, partitions etc, it show 4 unknown devices with unknown size, no harddisk, no partitions, after that, whatever I do, a bsod.
I googled this up and it seems to have to do with bad ram. My computer shows all disks and partitions without problems, so I figure it is not a hardware problem, but malware, preventing me from formatting/re-installing windows xp.
The problem is, that all works fine, ram test is fine. I ran several antimalware tools and mbam gave me one time (not the first scan) an infected memory module with a win32 trojan. It said delete on reboot, I rebooted and reran the scan and now it says the same. Sorry, I did not include the log, but I am afraid to use my usb-stick to copy the log, after what I was on that PC, I became a little paranoid.
Malwarebytes, run in normal mode, quick scan, reports memory module infecten with trojan downloader, c:\wiindows\system32\wmimgr32.dll and the file c:\windows\system32\wmimgr32.dll.
When I run the scan in safemode, it does not detect a thing.

I appreciate any help!!

I ran also checkdisk, inclusive surface scan and it found some problems (as a result of file intection?). The problem still remains, I start windows setup, it still does not recognize any partitioned/unpartitioned space (I checked in my computer, 50 Gb partitioned and 100 Gb unpartitioned) and after any choice I make there (create, delete, setup) a bsod.

Hello,
 
I have a Dell Studio 1737 laptop, Runs Vista. Bought in 2009.
 
A month or more ago, the battery stopped working. I haven’t replaced it yet, because, 1. It went from working to not working very abruptly, and I’m not sure that’s how batteries die. 2. Checking online, I read it might be my BIOS. 3. I know someone who replaced her battery and it only worked for a week or so. So her computer must have another issue going on, maybe mine does too.  
 
The last 2 weeks, the laptop has been freezing at random times.
 
When it’s not freezing, it’s running great. I run virus and malware checks often. Paid Avast, free Malwarebytes, ADWcleaner, CCleaner, and I ran Windows Repair All in One.
 
I ran a diagnostic test at Dell, it found a critical hardware failure--my memory module isn’t working properly and should be replaced. My System Info says that my -- RAM is 4.00 GB, Total physical memory - 3.96 GB, Available physical memory - 2.58, Total virtual memory - 8.12 GB, Available virtual memory - 6.62 GB.
 
Question-could this memory module issue cause the battery issue and/or the random freezing?
 
I also attempted to update my BIOS at Dell, which was a recommended update. It wouldn’t allow me to complete the update, because there was no battery.
 
 
Any advice would be welcome.
 
Thanks.

A:Battery, BIOS or memory module?

Hello - Yes batteries can die abruptly.. normally you would see a decrease in how long it stays charged and then it would simply fail.  But it could be yours just decided to die.  Also your computer's freezing can be attributed to bad memory and if their memory tester found a problem you may indeed have failing memory, but I would try replacing the battery first ( just in case somehow the lack of battery is affecting the memory circuit. (unlikely but possible).

Hello everyone: A few weeks ago I pushed the button to start my PC. It started with its usual routine but then stopped booting up and just started beeping at me. After several attempts at forcing it to shut down then starting it again only to have it beep at me I just left it off and used the laptop to do some research about the beeping. Seems it had to do with a memory problem which I managed to locate by removing the memory modules one at a time and replacing them in the same location they came from. I managed to isolate one module that when installed, caused the machine to beep and boot no further, and when removed, the machine booted up o.k. although it was a bit sluggish and acted like it wasn't to sure about what it was supposed to do with itself. It just so happened that it was in an end socket and when I removed a module from the opposite end and placed it in the suspect socket, the beeping started again, so I put that module back in it's place at the other end and left the other socket empty. I'm actually using the PC in question to make this post, it seems to run satisfactorily without the one module in place, but at times seems to loose its bearings.

A:Memory Module or System Board?

Hello,

Since the beeping starts when using a known good module in the "suspect" slot it

would seem to indicate a problem with the slot.

You can try testing using one working module in all slots to make sure that the issue is the slot.

If the slot is determined to be defective the board would have to be replaced.

This can be an issue with OEM unless the board is replaced with the same board.

The Owners Manual states that I should remove the AGP CARD before adding a new module. It doesn't say that I should replace it when the new memory is inserted.
Can anyone tell me what is the function of the AGP card and if it is necessary to remove it before adding the new memory module?
Thanks.

A:Is it necessary to remove AGP CARD before adding memory module?

The AGP card would be your video card, you'd definitely want to put that back in or your computer won't work. Normally you don't remove the video card to install more memory.

The only reason I see for doing that, since its not a normal procedure, is that the card may be in the way of the latches on the side of the memory slots.

Hi. I done a report on my pc using EVEREST because I wanted to upgrade my RAM. It says:

[ Memory Controller ]

Memory Controller Properties:
Error Detection Method None
Error Correction None
Supported Memory Interleave 1-Way
Current Memory Interleave 4-Way
Supported Memory Speeds 70ns, 60ns
Supported Memory Types DIMM, SDRAM
Supported Memory Voltages 3.3V
Maximum Memory Module Size 256 MB

It says maximum Memory Module Size 256MB. Does this mean I cannot put a 512MB memory module in or does it mean the most ive got in it is 256mb?

Hi

I found very nice YouTube movie How to replace the RAM for Toshiba NB500, NB520, NB550D Series
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mnQQbladnA

Check this.
The plastic cover at the bottom of the unit needs to be removed? there you will see the HDD and the memory modules. Spread out the two memory lock latches so that the memory module pops up. Pull the memory module up and out at an angle, using care to avoid touching the connectors. Remove the memory module.

That?s all.

A:Is it necessary to remove AGP CARD before adding memory module?

There is no reason to remove an AGP card if you are adding more memory. Unless the AGP card physically blocks the RAM slot (not allowing you to put the RAM in), you need not worry about the AGP card.

I know you're not supposed to mix memory modules, but I have an extra 256 mg module that's a different brand from the modules now in my system. My mb (ASUS) manual says "For dual channel configuration the total size of memory modules installed per channel must be the same for better performance" which I have now w/the 2 512 mg modules installed (Patriot). It also says "Always install modules w/the same CAS latency".

My questions:

1) Could installing the 256 mg module actually weaken performance of the "dual channel configuration"?

2) If it is a different CAS latency, could it harm the mb or other memory modules in any way?

I figure if it doesn't work, the system just won't boot and I'll remove the extra module. But if it does boot, I want to be sure no harm is done to the mb, the other modules, and that it won't actually degrade the dual channel performance of the other 2 modules.

Thanks much,
Harold

Hello,

I jsut installed 4GB of RAM on my Tecra A9 PTS52E; but Windows 7 tells me it can only use 2.99 GB of RAM. In order to get more out of the memory I read that I have to enable "memory remapping" in my BIOS. But where do I find that? I have BIOS version 2.10-WIN installed... If I'm not mistaken this is the most recent version for my model...?


Thanks,

Jan

A:Tecra A9 PTS52E - Enable BIOS memory remapping

If you installed 32bit Windows 7, you won't get more than 3GB due to 32bit addressing limitations.

If you have 64bit Windows 7, the 1GB is probably being used by the graphics chip (GPU) as Video RAM.

My Tecra R850-11U has 8GB (2x 4GB) memory inside. I am running W7 professional 64bit and the machine only shows 4GB as memory.

I allready upgraded the bios, but the bios also shows 4GB. I have 2 banks of original samsung memory in it; changed one to an kingston bank but it still doesn't show more than 4GB.

How can i solve this problem?? I like full memory

A:Tecra R850-11U doesn't recognise full memory

The chipset supports 8GB RAM so you should be able to use the 8GB.
But if the BIOS does not recognize the 8GB RAM then one of the modules could be faulty or not compatible with another module.

This is only and one plausible explanation for me

Good day to all. Can someone please assist me, advance thanks..

I bought a PC with MSI mainboard, N430GT, with 2-2GB Kingston KVR1333D3N9/2G installed RAM (=4GB), 500GB HDD.
Everything works smooth until I read that I could upgrade memory up to 16GB max. BTW my OS is Win7 64 Ultimate.

So I decided first to buy and install 2pcs-4GB Kingston KVR1333D3N9/4G (=8GB), for a few days everything works fine as expected, I shut it down one night and the following day restarting my PC, it turned BLUE with messages., and then on as often as every 5 minutes or less it turns BSOD.

I asked my friends and told me to do a clean OS reinstallation and I did that, but the problem persisted as if nothing changed.

So I did a memory diagnostic and It noted that possible hardware problem.

I did immediately changed and swap back my original 2pcs-2GB memory, and surprisingly until this thread writing it is ok.

My mainboard supports dual channel (two slots only) and I want to know how could I checked which one of the two 4GB memory modules is not working, or is it safe to install only one 4GB memory to checked which of the two is working or both are not working?

Any immediate response is of great help. thanks.

A:BSOD after upgrading &/or installing new memory module on brand new PC

The Kingston Value Ram (KVR) is known to be marginal and not even work in some PC's. The regular Kingston memory is usually OK but none of the techies that I know will use or recommend the KVR.

Check the MSI (or whoever the motherboard vendor is) site for your motherboard model (you didn't list it so I can't check for your). The N430GT is your video card, not the motherboard. Most motherboard vendors list compatible memory for their motherboards. Best to use memory that has been certified for the specific motherboard.

I want to add another 8gb memory module.  I have asked Dell representative 5 times about which module to order.  I have received 4 different recommendations and one "your PC can't be upgraded).  I do know that my PC has two slots for memory and is only using 1 8gb module so I know it can be upgraded.  I just don't know which module is best suited for my PC.
Any suggestions??  Thanks in advance

A:Inspiron 3250 Small Desktop Memory Module

Have you called Dell Spare Parts directly (totally separate from Dell tech support) and given them that part number?
You can look at Crucial.com. They have 2x8GB RAM for this system model for ~$94. The good thing about Crucial is they guarantee it works in whichever system they recommended it for or they take it back. Many people around this forum buy from Crucial.
But do yourself a favor. Start at Crucial's home page and work through their product finder on the left side so you know you looking at RAM for your system. Don't just rely on the link I posted, because -after all- it is your money.  
You will have to click the "Show more" button when you get to the page for your model to see the 8 GB modules.
And I guess you could sell the Hynix module on eBay etc to recover some of the cost of a new pair...

A:Portege 3440CT: What is a orginal memory module spec

Hi

Portege 3440 supports 64Mb of internal memory and this memory cannot be removed.
So only one slot is available.

As far as I know Toshiba recommends using these modules for an upgrade:

*SDRAM 64MB (PA3033U-1M06)*
*SDRAM 128MB (PA3034U-1M12)*

I think you could google for these single numbers and you should get a photo or all needed details about these modules?

I have a Dell Inspiron 5521 Laptop having 4 GB RAM. I am planning to add additional 8GB RAM.
So, the Total RAM would be 4+8= 12 GB.

I found the following information in Dell Specifications User Guide:

Memory
Connectors:
Inspiron 5521 Two internally-accessible DDR3 SODIMM connectors
Inspiron 5537 Two internally-accessible DDR3L SODIMM connectors
Capacity Up to 16 GB
Type:
Inspiron 5521 Dual channel DDR3
Inspiron 5537 Dual channel DDR3L
Speed Up to 1600 MHz
Configurations supported 2 GB, 4 GB, 6 GB, 8 GB, and 16 GB

I found the following Memory Module information by running Command on my Laptop: 
Total Width: 64 bits

Data Width: 64 bits

Size: 4096 MB

Form Factor: SODIMM

Set: None

Locator: JDIMM2

Bank Locator: Not Specified

Type: DDR3

Type Detail: Synchronous

Speed: 1600 MHz



Question 1: Is it possible to add 4+8= 12GB configuration in this Laptop?
Question 2: Should i use DDR3 instead of DDR3L RAM in this Laptop?
Question 3: Which RAM is best supported with this Laptop, Kingston or CORSAIR Vengeance?

Note: I am using Ubuntu on this Machine.

A:Dell Inspiron 5521 | RAM Upgrade | Memory Module

1. Yes, albeit at a performance penalty.  It's designed for a pair of matched modules.
2.  Either will work by itself.  Don't mix DDR3 and DDR3L though -- if you have DDR3, use that; if L, use that if you're adding a module.
3.  Crucial is hard to beat particularly given its compatibility guarantee when purchased through its memory configurator.  Anything else- ask the vendor about compatibility guarantees (or be sure you understand the possible restocking charge if a return is required).

Hello all

I need help with some issue:
My system says that I have 2,66GB RAM available for applications, services etc. The rest of it (between 1,1 and 1,3 GB RAM) is shared and reserved for the graphic card. I searched for a way to reduce it via BIOS (how it normally works), tried an update for the bios hopping that it would add this feature. But that wasn't the case.

I can't understand why Toshiba doesn't allow his customers to modifity this setting!
I can understand to put such a setting by default, but also giving an option for advanced users to modifiy this setting.

2,66GB RAM are not very much and I often need more than that... 500MB more RAM for sys would be really nice.
And 64bit OSs are currently not supported in our company.

So does anyone know a way to reduce the shared memory to e.g. 500MB?

I have upgraded one of my old computers from 512MB RAM to 1GB by buying another PC3200 DDR400 512MB module. Upon booting Windows XP after the installation of RAM, BSODs with various errors show up (sometimes before loading to the desktop, sometimes after the desktop has loaded). Some of the errors include: IRQL LESS THAN EQUAL error, and another error that has the word 'Page' in it (I forgot if it is Page fault or Page file).

I have traced this down to the BIOS Memory settings. Before the upgrade, I have set other settings to the optimal setting that the BIOS can allow me, by reading this guide: http://www.techarp.com/freebog.aspx , without any problems. Upon upgrading, setting the DRAM Command Rate to 2T will prevent the BSODs (before the installation of the new module, this setting was set to 1T and my system worked fine without any BSODs).

I am wondering if there is another way I can get my system to work while still setting the DRAM Command Rate to 1T. As I have seen from various websites like this one: (Techwarelabs.com)
http://www.techwarelabs.com/reviews/memory/memory_timings/index_3.shtml , there is a performance increase if the DRAM Command Rate is set to 1T. I also would like to know if the performance gain is not that significant and if it is better if I just leave it at 2T?

A:DRAM Command Rate BIOS setting Problem with Installation of New Memory Module

Put the slower one into Slot 1 - that ought to ensure it runs at that speed, not the faster sticks timings..

You could try resetting it to 1T if that proves stable. A slight bump in Ram Voltage probably wouldn't hurt - if your board has that Facility in the BIOS.

A quick way to test stablility is to run a 2m SuperPi - it's not foolproof, but if it passes, you know you're on the right track. If you get errors, it's still suss, and you might want to run a MemTest on each stick individually - although it's new, it may still be faulty!

Hey all, I'm new around here, and I joined because I have bad computer trouble, and maybe someone could identify my problem. The other day, I opened up my computer to put a stick of 512 Mb DDR Ram into it, and i found two 128 Mb DDR sticks already in there. So I took one of the 128 Mb Chips out, and put the 512 Mb in, mixing them up with each other. Anyways, when I turned on my computer to boot it up, it made a bunch of wierd noises, like beeps, so I turned it off fairly fast. I took out the 512 Mb and put back in the old 128 Mb stick. Now whenever I push the button for my computer to come on, It will only make a long beep, pause for a second, then keep making the beeps, over and over again, the screen does not light, the LED stays orange. If anyone could help, anything is appreciated, Thanks.

Take out all the sticks of ram, and then out in the 128 and 512. Be sure to take all of them out first though, and they are pushed ALL the way down, it requires some force.

What I do is, line up the RAM with the slot, then just push down hard on the ram until the clips at the side automatically come up and clip the ram into place

At first I must say that Toshiba recovery image is created for each notebook model separately and it is 100% created to work on specific model. Why?
Every notebook model has different hardware platform and all drivers, tools and utilities for certain model are part of recovery image. These recovery images are also tested.

Generally speaking if both models have identical hardware platform (hardware parts) it can be used.
