Memory upgrade on Satellite M30-344

i have upgraded my memory from 2 x 256 mb to 2 x 512 mb, but nothing works. i bought the ram modules compatible to pa3312u-1m151.
this system doesn't boot, nothing happens. after reinstalling the old module, system starts normally.
what can i do?

This case is very clear. You have used not compatible memory modules.
As in the previous posting suggested, you should use the other compatible ram module.
If you dont know where to buy this part so please contact the Toshiba service partner in your country. There you will be able to order the right part.
By the way; I can confirm that the PC2100 512MB (PA3164U-1M51) is a right module

  • How to change the cooler on Satellite M30-344?

    I´m pretty lucky with my Satellite M30-344 but since 2 months the cooler starts to get louder every day. Is it possible to change the cooler on my own and how expansive is the original cooler? Do you know something like a tutorial for the changing process?
    Originally 2 256MB Ram pieces is installed. Now I´m thinking about a bigger RAM piece. As far as I know the are only 2 slots for the RAM or am I wrong. Is it possible to install two 1GB RAM pieces???
    Thank you for your help!

    The replacement of the internal devices is not easy and a little bit risky.
    I would not recommend replacing the cooling module yourself.
    You could damage something on the board and as you know the motherboard is a one of the expensive parts of the notebook. The manuals are not published because such documents are only for the technicians and service partners.
    Therefore I think you should ask a service partner for the help because these guys have more experience in such procedures.
    I found a online site with the memory modules for Satellite M30-344
    It says that its possible to update the memory to max 2GB. Therefore I Think its possible to use 2x 1024MB module.

    Nicky is absolutely right. The 512MB RAM module for your unit has PA3164U-1M51 part number. It is PC2700 DDR-RAM.

  • Satellite M30-344 would not boot up

    I have there a Toshiba Satellite M30-344.
    I didn't use the notebook since several weeks. Now everytime I boot the Notebook an error appears: "0203: Failure IDE #2 - Do you want to run setup".
    Since the last use I didn't change anything on the configuration.
    The only problem there was, is that I has forgotten to turn him off and he kept running under my table for more than 2 weeks.
    Is there a way to solve this problem?
    Thank you for your help.
    Greetings from Germany!

    ...oh dear, you are not kidding?? You forgotten to turn him off and kept him under a table??? Man, THATs REALLY weird. :)
    And now to help you with your problem:
    IDE#2 means the DVD-drive, so you have some options to bring your machine to life, since your DVD-drive maybe could be faulty.
    Firstly, try to get into BIOS and make everything to default. If you didnt get any results, then remove the drive by unscrewing the screw under the drive and pulling the drive gently out
    of tha machine. You can also after you unscrewed it, open the drive and then gently pulling it by the inner carriage of the drive.
    If unsure how to make or to much fear to damage something, then bring your machine to an local ASP and they will help you with your little problem.
    So I think, your drive is probably faulty.
    P.S.: And try to remember next time when what you keep under your table like notebooks, pets, humans, gremlins.... ;)
    Nice weekened

  • CPU upgrade on Satellite M30-106

    Hi folks
    Could do with some help please?
    Just got an old Toshiba Satellite M30-106 a few weeks ago and [to be fair] it runs not bad with xp on it. I purchased another 2 gig DDR which does make a difference speed wise but can I upgrade the processor from the Intel Pentium M processor 725 1.60 GHz front side bus : 400 MHz,2nd level cache : 2 MB thats in it just now ?
    Can it take a higher CPU if so whats the highest? Would be very gratefully of some advice please.
    Thanks in advance.......

    At first I must say that I agree with you that this notebook runs well with WXP. At least this notebook model is designed for WXP. ;)
    I found some info about CPUs on Satellite M30:
    +The Satellite M30 computer is equipped with an Intel Banias Processor, which+
    +incorporates a math co-processor, a 64KB L1 cache memory and a 1MB L2 cache+
    +memory. The processor runs with one of the following speeds:+
    +Intel Banias Processor 1.40GHz (1.35V) / 1.20GHz (0.85V)+
    +Intel Banias Processor 1.50GHz (1.35V) / 1.20GHz (0.85V)+
    +Intel Banias Processor 1.60GHz (1.35V) / 1.20GHz (0.85V)+
    +Intel Banias Processor 1.70GHz (1.35V) / 1.20GHz (0.85V)+
    So maybe you can use this fastest 1.70GHz CPU. I don't think you will see big difference.
    Best thing you can do is to upgrade RAM to max and optimize preinstalled WXP and you will be happy with this oldie.

  • Memory upgrade on Satellite A60-218

    Is it possible to upgrade the memory for the Satellite A60-218 models?
    I've heard that the memory is onboard (internal) and cannot be replaced. Is this true?
    If not, could somebody give me a hint where can I find the memory modules on this model?
    I have tried disassembling it without success.

    Just for info: Satellite A60 has 512 MB internal memory and one sot only is available for upgrade. This unit can handle with max 1,5 GB of RAM. On the bottom side in the middle there is placed memory module cover. Remove it and you will find RAM slot.
    For RAM upgrade you can use follow compatible memory modules:
    PC2700 512MB (PA3312U-1M51)
    PC2700 1024MB (PA3313U-1M1G)
    If you have more questions please write again.
    Bye and good luck!

  • Memory Upgrade on Satellite P100

    I have a TOSHIBA Satellite P100 PSPAAE-01D00UEN
    System Serial Number: 17172416W
    Could anyone tell me the maximum amount of USEFUL memory I can install on this machine please?
    I am running Windows 7 Ultimate, (32 Bit) and do a lot of graphics and file management work, with file sizes up to 4Gb.
    I cannot afford a new machine, before anyone suggests it !!!!
    Thank you,
    Message was edited by: Whiteboat

    You can upgrade your Satellite P100 up to 4 GB of RAM.

  • Memory upgrade on Satellite Pro L40-15d

    I have Satellite Pro L40-15d with 512 memory (Samsung) but I wont upgrade to 1GB. I have Kingston ktt667d2/1g I have tray to put in to both slots but nothing work I cant switch on computer.
    But when I change for old one laptop is ok. What can I do? Install special program or update BIOS or maybe the memory stick is broken.

    The notebook doesnt boot after the memory upgrade due to these different issues;
    - memory modules are not compatible together
    - memory modules are not compatible with the notebook
    - memory modules are faulty
    - one of memory slots is faulty
    In most case the memory module replacement helps.
    One hint; did you try to switch the memory modules in the slots? Sometimes this helps.
    Several weeks ago I have updated my memory and the notebook didnt boot.
    I thought its a memory malfunction but after module switching the notebook booted correctly.
    Good luck

  • Memory Upgrade on Satellite Pro A10

    Can anyone advise me as to the correct RAM type to upgrade my Satellite Pro A10. Its a standard 256mB at the minute and I'm thinking of slotting in an additional 512mB next to it - but am bemused by the array of memory types and nomenclatures - DDR - SODIMM etc !!!
    Handy with the screw drivers but not so hot with the acronyms. Many thanks to you all out there who know the score!

    I understand you very well and sometimes Im also a little bit confused because of the whole notations in the computer world.
    The Sat Pro A10 supports 200-Pin PC2700 (333Mhz) DDR SODIMM modules and you can upgrade the memory on this notebook up to 1024MB (2 x 512MB)
    You could check this memory module page:

  • Memory upgrade on Satellite A50-104


    You have several ways to find out what memory module is compatible and supported.
    You can use a diagnostic too like Everest, you will check the user manual or the Toshiba website for details or you will contact the service in your country for supported modules.
    I will try to answer the question: The Satellite A50 should support PC2700 DDR-RAM like these parts:
    PC2700 256MB (PA3311U-1M25)
    PC2700 512MB (PA3312U-1M51)
    PC2700 1024MB (PA3313U-1M1G)
    Now its your choice. You can also google for the offers
    By the way: Visit the Toshiba Options & accessories site. There you will find compatible parts

    Thanks in advance.

    On the Satellite Pro A40 you will find 2 memory slots and you can upgrade the memory to max 2GB (2x1024MB)
    It should be possible to use these modules:
    PC2100 512MB (PA3164U-1M51)
    PC2100 1GB (PA3278U-1M1G)
    PC2700 512MB (PA3312U-1M51)
    PC2700 1024MB (PA3313U-1M1G
    I purchase the compatible parts and devices always form the Toshiba service partner in my country because so I'm 100% sure that this parts are compatible.

  • Memory upgrade for Satellite L30-134

    I have a Satellite L30-134 which appears to be running quite slowly - I think due to large amount of photos and itunes music.
    I am wondering which is the easiest way to resolve - buy a memory upgrade (no idea how to change the memory though) or get an external hard drive?
    And if I change the memory will I lose what is already saved on the laptop?

    I agree with Ganz the bigger HDD will not improve the performance but only increase the available HDD space it would helps you to store more music and pic files on the HDD ;)
    The memory upgrade would also not bring an performance boost of course the performance would be a little bit better because the most stuff would be handled directly in the memory and not temporally on the HDD but generally its not really noticeable.
    Anyway if you want to upgrade the memory check this:
    You have to use DDR2 533MHz (PC2-4200) 200-PIN SODIMM

  • Re: Memory upgrade on Satellite L10-202

  • Memory Upgrade on Satellite Pro A60

    I have upgraded an A60 Pro with a 1GB memory up but the Control Panel /System/ General tab still shows it as having 192MB RAM. This limits me downloading some Security Software from BT Yahoo.
    Can anyone advise on how I can make the machine recognise the new RAM or is the 192 MB RAM noted different memory from the new memory upgrade?

    If you use non-compatible RAM module it is logic that system can not recognize it correctly. I do not know who is the manufacturer of this 1 GB RAM module but if you want to use compatible one pick up some info about PC2700 1024MB (PA3313U-1M1G) or check Kingston web page.
