    Toshiba A100 Laptop questions.

    Right, I have a Toshiba A100 Satellite Pro
    Model #: PSAACE-008002EN

    I'm thinking about upgrading the RAM/Memory, someone said to add 1gb ram to it, which would make one slot 512mb and the other 1gb.

    Now I'm wondering the maximum memory I can have for this laptop.

    Apparantly I need PC2-4200 memory, so I searched for it and found this:
    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...d=8&subcat=697

    But I'm not sure if my laptop can use 4gb memory, apparantly some have maximum of 2gb. Can someone help please?


    Also, the laptop uses a ATI Mobility Radeon X1400, is it possible to upgrade this memory card? Or is this memory card even good?

    The largest module your laptop can use is a 1GB DDR2 533MHz PC4200. It has two slots total for a maximum memory of 2gb.

    I doubt you need more than 1gb so if you have 512 already then an additional 1gb for a total of 1.5 is plenty!

    I found the specs on toshibas site here

    I just found something else though, it says the maximum mine can hold is 4gb, are you sure you looked at the right model?

    Hoping that's right, I want the most I can get, I don't suppose you know anything about if the graphic card is actually good enough to play future games?

    Thanks a lot by the way!

    No, you're thinking about taking me to the Seychelles.
    I love you, Adam.

    You might be right since the model I chose on toshibas site is a satelite pro a100 but not exactly yours. What applications are you planning to use? I would be willing to bet you 10$ you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between 1.5gb and 4gb.

    The memory you posted in the first link won't work. You need SO-DIMMs

    The link you posted to toshiba's site doesn't work.

    The Radeon X1400 is so so for a laptop video card. You will be able to play older games at good resolution. Look at this site http://www.notebookcheck.net/ATI-Mob...00.2165.0.html

    Yes it was, and I don't blame you getting a laptop, it'll be good for all that... whatever you do... at sixth form. The memory on my computer is running out and I don't even have enough to upgrade MSN regularly, it just depends if you want a damn bloody load of videos on your computer... And StepMania >_<
    I love you, Adam.

    Specifications don't really mean anything to me, I barely understand computers/laptops, I'm planning on playing Gears of War when it comes out on PC.. but I wanna know if my Graphic card will at least be able to handle it at a lower resolution.

    So I need this one?

    http://www.crucial.com/uk/store/mpar...9B2251A5CA7304

    The other link works for me, not sure why it's not working for you but it's okay, it shows the actual model and it says

    System memory
    standard : 512 MB
    maximum expandability : 4,096 MB
    technology : DDR2 RAM (533 MHz)
    And nooo Froggy, I had the laptop a while ago, but I could sell it to get money to take you to Seychelles if you really want me to?

    Yes that crucial ram will work. The price isnt bad either!

    The other link doesnt work because its session based and only you can access it.

    Oh right, that would make sense, but that one's only 1gb I want moreeee! My laptop is seriously slow lately... Will I notice an improvement with an extra 1gb?
