Q: Upgrading Memory on ENVY 4-1000en

Hello,Since I have some basic computer knowledge but I want to be sure before going for it, I need your advice. I own a HP ENVY Sleekbook 4-1000en and I recently upgraded hard drive and OS.I am thinking of upgrading RAM as well, as far as I know you need 2 memories of the same type so I guess I can?t just buy another 4 GB one right?Do I need 2 x 4 GB DDR3 of the same type to make it work? For example would these ones work finehttp://www.corsair.com/en/vengeance-8gb-high-performance-sodimm-memory-upgrade-kit-cmsx8gx3m2a1600c9 ?Lastly does upgrading memory require any other configurations after plugin them in? Is a format required for example?Thanks for your time.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm interested in purchasing an HP ENVY 720-220 computer. The specs look great, but I'd love to upgrade the RAM. According to the product specifications, it is upgradable to 16 GB. Now, my question is, would HP be willing to upgrade the RAM themselves if I paid an additional fee? I know the guide to upgrade RAM is online, but I'd rather not take the risk and mess up the machine.  Thank you ahead of time.

Hello, I would like to upgrade the GPU and PSU on a  HP Envy H8-1437c.  The GPU I am wanting to upgrade to is the GEFORCE GTX 970.  It is 10" in length, PCI Express 3.0,  and a dual port (or double wide?).  The PSU is  a  EVGA Supernove Nex650G.  Are there any proprietary power connectors on the current psu that I should be worried about? Am I able to upgrade the current GPU (NVIDIA GeForce GT 620 )to the GEFORCE GTX 970? Thank you very much!

I'm interested in swapping out my current HDD and replacing it with an SSD. Are there any limitations on the size of SSD I can install? Will a 1tb work or am I limited to 512gb or anything like that?Are there any complications I should be aware of while considering this upgrade?Thanks a bunch!

A:upgrading Envy m6 1125dx with SSD, are there any limitations...

See p. 48 of the Manual here: M6 service Manual https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7kLMZoGoTs There is no limit to the SSD you can install other than your budget. Any 2.5 inch SATA SSD that is 7mm thick which almost all are.  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA6BM3T90744&cm_re=Samsung_850_Evo-_-20-147-373-_-... The Samsung Evo 850 is my choice but OCZ, Kingston, several others make a good product so as long as it is a name brand you can shop on price and there are deals to be had.  Software reinstallation/migration can be hard but if you have Windows 10 you always know you can download an install disk and you do not need a Key Code to reinstall and it will activate when you connect to the internet. Windows 10 allows you to make a system image and you can also use cloning software. Many ways to skin the cat. Post back with the inevitable follow-up questions.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Schwaa, welcome to the forum. This was a very good review of how you upgraded your computer.  What you discovered are the problems that are created by a mid-size case.  It would be great if HP would offer a full size case for their gaming computers.  What you accomplished should make a major difference in performance.

Hi, I had a problem with my old HDD installed on my HP ENVY 15-j012la, so I bought a new 240 gb SSD (Crucial BX200). I replaced the HDD with the SSD, then turn the laptop ON with the USB Win10 image to install it on the SSD, but the installer didn't recognized it. I gave format to the SSD, but the problem remains. I've read that the SATA should be changed in the BIOS, but this laptop has the InsydeH20 3.7 and there's no way to change to AHCI. I would be very grateful if you could help with this issue! Best !

6 months ago,i upgraded memory from the factory installed 64 to 256. It works,etc.

Is there any additional tweaking/ajustments i can do? i read something with virtual memory setting could be done for one thing.
 

A:After upgrading memory,its works,Virtual memory Tweaking Now?

Unless you have Win95 you likely donít want to go messing with your virtual memory. And even in that case it is the vcache you would be more interested in tweaking. Win98 and higher handles memory well.

If you watch your system monitor and are sure you arenít using your virtual memory you might do the ConservativeSwapfileUsage=1 INI tweak. Unless you are doing graphics, video editing or something RAM intensive you likely arenít using the virtual memory and the tweak wonít slow your computer. It doesnít speed it up, it just stops needless writes to the hard drive during idle time. Information if you want to do that: http://www.aumha.org/a/memmgmt.htm

Donít let anyone talk you into Cacheman or any of those Mem/RAM/Turbo/Boost type programs. They were written for Win95 and counterproductive in anything since.

I picked up a refurbished HP ENVY 750-137C, and am currently looking to upgrade the graphics. I don't want to break the bank, but I do want it to last me some time, so I'm looking at the Nvidia GEFORCE GTX 1070.  Aside from the changes in power requirements, does anyone know if this card would be compatible, and if there are any issues to this upgrade? Also, Nvidia recommends a 500W power supply for this card. Would that be enough, or is that genrous number? Additionally, if anyone has a power supply product they would recommend for this theoretical combination, I would greatly appreciate the advice. Thanks!

A:Upgrading to GTX 1070 Graphics Card for HP ENVY 750-137C

@Drifterx311?, welcome to the forum. Here are the full specs of the card on nVidia's website.  The card is double slot and 10.5" in length.  I suggest measuring from the Back I/O plate to the front of the case to see how much space is available.  I believe that it will fit, but it will be tight. As you stated, the specs recommend a 500W power supply unit (PSU).  Personally, I would buy one with at least 600W.  This will give you some extra power for peak needs.  I like Corsair products.  Here are some PSU's for you to review at Newegg.  If you choose a modular PSU it will allow you to only install the cables that are absolutely necessary.  This allows for better airflow.  The PSU is the backbone of the computer.  Read the Customer Reviews to see what users have to say about them.  A good PSU will make your system run much better. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

The service guide for the HP Laptop ENVY 17-j013cl indicates the largest SSD that is compatible is 160GB.  Does the service guide state this because, at the time the ENVY 17 was produced, the largest SSD was 160GB?   Or is the system limited to 160GB SSD, for some reason? Thanks.

Hi All! Last weekend I updated the memory RAM of my laptop HP ENVY Notebook - 15-k277ca. The machine has 1 module of 8GB by factory, so I've bought another module of 8GB (same Brand and same rate). But the problem is that the machine did not recognize this second module, neither in BIOS nor SO. Currently I'm running Windows 10 Enterprise x64. The weird part is that I've downloaded the CPU-Z, and this software recognizes the two modules. Any idea?  Here are the image of the CPU-Z software (where the memories are recognized)

Hello, I 've been trying to increase my dedicated video memory in BiOS but I can't seem to figure out how to do it or if it's even possible. Any Ideas will be greatly appreciated, It's currently set to 128mb and thats pretty much useless for most games now adays. I read somewhere that games will run better if you increase it.  When I do scans on my computer that check compatibility for games, dedicated video is always the only issue. Product name: HP ENVY 15 x360 PCProduct number: G6T84UA#ABAVideo Card: Intel HD Graphics 4400Windows 10 Home 64-bit

A:how do I increase HP Envy Dedicated Video memory?

Hi, Simply say: you can't. System will automatically allocate/assign available system RAM to graphics up to max supported. By the way, that machine is not a games machine. If you wish to play games on laptop, please set aside around $2,000. Regards.

Did HP Envy Touchscr 15-as027cl supports both HDD + SSD memory?

A:HP Envy Touchscr 15-as027cl memory upgrade

Yes, theoretically. Here is the Manual: Service Manual It has a place to put a regular 2.5 inch hard drive or SSD and then also an M.2 slot. But there have been many issues here with HP laptops that have an M.2 slot but the port is disabled so you cannot install one aftermarket. My best advice if you want SSD speed is to replace the stock mechnical drive with an SSD.  Post back with any more questions.

Is it true that you can only upgrade memory with double the amount you already have? This is new to me, but someone told me if I was gonna upgrade my 256Meg DDR ram i have to put another 256Meg in and cannot put in 512meg like I want to give, er, 786Meg? Does this make sense? Is it true? I only have two memory slots and wanted to upgrade to as much as i can. (In stages of course).

Thanks, Paul.
 

A:Upgrading memory

That is not true. It is desirable to have the same brand of memory if possible.
Also, make sure that your system is capable of handling that amount of memory. Check your motherboard manual or website for the info, if you aren't sure.

I am considering upgrading my laptop's RAM from 4 GB DDR3 to 8 GB DDR3. Currently my laptop contains 2 strips of the following memory:

2GB 2Rx8 PC3-8500S-07-10 [x2]


Thought I'd ask you guys for help, as I do not know where to look for Samsung RAM, or any other 100% compatible RAM for my laptop. Well, actually I know where to look but how do I figure out which suits my laptop the best? I prefer to have the same brand of RAM this laptop came with, which is Samsung (my laptop is an Acer Aspire 8735G).

Also is it better to have 2 strips of 4 GB or would it be a better idea for me to buy 1 strip of 8 GB? I don't have any idea what type of motherboard this laptop's got, I can't seem to find it anywhere... I've used CPU-Z, checked my laptop's manual and service guide but nothing to find there.

Or can i only use with pc3200?
 

A:Upgrading memory

Are u sure ur M/B is Asus Sk8n? I can't find it in newegg, or maybe u mean Asus K8N? What is ur CPU? If it's AMD then max memory clock it can use is 400MHz (PC 3200).

U can use higher clock memory, but ur M/B will only recognize it as 400MHz, so I think u'd be better off buying a 400MHz memory.

My net book Acer Aspire One 722-BZ454 came with only 2 gb of ram. Since I have been flooded with win 7 upgrades and etc..2 gigs seem to slow down my system. I heard owners of the same net book had removed the 2 gigs and replaced it with 4gigs and found that to be very satisfactory. I bought this net book cause of traveling convience and its low price, but i do not want to add more cost to it, because of it.. I realize it would cost me something, so can anyone here recommend where i can get a good price on a 4 gig ram? Also, its a shame about the removable 2 gig i would have to remove..i go back to the days when a pc ran on only 10MB of ram and that was in Oct 1992...and they were very, very expensive then and even rare to get at times.

Above link is to the Crucial RAM configurator for your netbook at Crucial.com. Take a look at its recommendation for your netbook.

You can also go to Crucial with your netbook and let it sniff your configuration. It will then make a recommendation that should match the link I provided.

$23 for 4 GB direct from Crucial, or you can shop for that exact Crucial product number locally.

I upgraded the memory on my Compaq home computer last week. Thanks to the advice I received on this site. I went through crucial.com to get what I needed. This is the first time I ever opened a computer to do anything. My computer is running very well now.

Now I want to upgrade the memory on a home computer where I work. It is a Compaq also but a different model. The memory capable is 512MB. Currently running with 256MB with ONE empty slot. I want to use the 128MB module that I had in my other computer to bring the memory up to 384MB.

This Compaq is about 2 years newer. Both are running Windows XP. Will it harm the computer to put 128MB next to the existing 256MB?

Hello,

I have got an old computer but would like to upgrade my memory.
At the moment I have 4GB DDR2 PC2-5300 (333 MHz).

Would I be able to upgrade those to 800MHz PC2-6400? Or maybe combine them?

Thanks for the help.

A:Upgrading memory

It depends on a lot of factors, but most likely, you wouldn't see any difference in performance if you did and were able to get them to run at 800 MHz. If you combined them, the memory will run at the slowest speed of the chips anyway.

Now, if you have a reason to need 8 GB over 4 GB, you'll see a difference with the increased memory, but only if the 4 GB is holding you back at this point.

A:Upgrading Memory(RAM)

You should be able to run the 512 with the 2x256 with no problems. I would check the latency of the RAM to verify they all match. Latency is usually denoted in this format 2.5-3-3-5. I would stick with the same manufacturer if possible. Only real way to tell if it is going to work is to try it and see and browse as many forums as you can to see if anyone else has had issues with those brands and sizes...

Hi,
First post here - any help appreciated.

I'm trying to help my Mum and Dad upgrade their PC memory to help with performance.

Here are the two PC details - looking for confirmation that I'm ordering the right stuff.

PC 1 - MESH ELITE m800, has 2 x 512 PC3200 DDR 400MHz
PC 2 - MESH ELITE 2.6, has 2 x 256 PC2700 DDR 333 MHz.

Here are my questions.

1. I assume you cannot mix 400MHz and 333Mhz memory - right? (So I cannot mix those memories)
2. Each PC has 2 slots used and 2 slots free - does it need to be added in pairs? I guess so - not sure though.

I'm planning on buying 2 x 512 PC3200 400MZ for PC 1 taking it to 2GB.
And getting 2 x 512MB PC 2700 333MHz for PC 2 taking it to 1.5GB.

Does this make sense?

I'd normally got to amazon and get whatever is cheapest and not completely 'no-name'.

Sound OK?

Thanks
Mike
 

A:Upgrading Memory

Welcome,

Memory is not created equal.....get a name brand would be better....not sure of the make in them now...

You can mix 400MHz and 333Mhz memory but it will always run at the slower of the two.

If the PCs in question have access to the Web try here and click on Scan My System using the PCs you want upgrade and it will give you a good bench mark.

I am not a tech ninja, so I thought I would ask those who are...

I'm upgrading the memory on my work laptop from 512mb to 2gb. I removed the 512 and installed the 2gb (two 1gb sticks), and when I turned on the laptop, it seemed to go back to exactly how it was when I first received it. My desktop was gone, etc. So, I removed one 1gb stick and put the 512mb stick back in the expansion slot on the bottom and everything is working as before. Therefore, my question is: how can I put in the other 1gb and keep everything working as it is now? Is there a way to transfer my data from the 512mb memory to the 1gb that's already installed?? Any help is appreciated!

This may seem like a stupid question, but is it possible to put PC100 SDRAM memory in a system that uses PC2100 DDR SDRAM or PC3200 DDR SDRAM memory? I have a system with only 128MB or RAM that is choking (intergrated graphics, go figure), and I wanted to upgrade it. NOTE: IT ISN'T POSSIBLE TO UPGRADE THE VIDEO CARD: IT HAS NO AGP SLOT. ONLY STANDARD PCI.
 

A:Memory upgrading

No. the pc100 sdram module wouldn`t fit into the ddr dimm slots.

Get at least a 512MB stick of ddr333 or ddr400(pc2700/pc3200) ram.

Take out your 128Mb stick of ram and replace it with the larger ram module.

Make sure that whatever ram you get it is compatible with your mobo.

On the graphics card issue. It can be upgraded, by buying a pci graphics card.

Do a Google search for pci graphics cards.

I'm getting ready to upgrade my motherboard, memory and CPU to E8400 with 8GB DDR2 SDRAM on a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P MB. I want to run Windows XP 32-bit (my current OS) in a dual boot with Windows 7 Beta 64-bit.

My question is:
If I upgrade the motherboard, CPU and memory will Windows XP SP2 be able to recognize it and recover ("Windows has recovered from a serious error") or will it trash the Windows XP installation? I know I will have to install MB, CPU and chipset drivers but besides that, is it do-able without re-installing Windows XP? Also, will having 8GB RAM be detrimental to 32-bit Windows XP?

Thanks in advance.

You'll need to look that information up in your motherboard book.

Yes, you can just buy a single 4GB of the same memory already installed to upgrade to 8GB.

I guess its time for me to upgrade my computer. It's a few years old now and it seems to be trailing behind in the speed-department. All the games i run are pretty slow and/or laggy. The only problem is that i don't know exactly what kind of memory to buy, nor do i know how much i need to get. these are my specs:

Dell Dimmension 4300
Intel Pentium 4 CPU 1.7 GHz
256 MB Ram
64 MB ram video card (NVIDIA GeForce MX/MX 400)
100 mbps cable internet
37 GB hard drive

The only other question i have is should i just get 512 (since im pretty sure that's my computer's maximum) or should i go ahead and buy a new motherboard with higher memory connections. If so, what type of motherboard. My computer case is pretty large (at least it seems regular size) so i don't think space will be much of a problem. Thanks
 

A:Upgrading Computer Memory

RAM is only part of the problem with your PC. Your CPU is slow and your video card is pretty low end.

Your computer should be able to support more than 512MB of RAM. Check to see how many memory slots there are. On Dells it may only be two, maybe three.

If you go to Dells website and enter your service tag it will usually list what type of memory was originally installed. Chances are it's PC2100 DDR or something similar.

Hi, I have 512mb (2x256mb) RAM in my computer, i want to upgrade because i am doing lots of video editing and movie making. I was thinking about upgrading to 2 gigs but i was told this by someone
""overkill on Ram can be counter productive!! Boot up takes longer (more of windows loaded into RAM)>> CD and DVD burning slower, more of the Data cached in RAM!! I settled for 1.5 gigs< enough for CAD programs and Photoshop to run good but not too much to slow down booting and CD burning !!!"

is this true?

I was also told

"2GB's is generally overkill, 1GB outta do it"
"2 gigs would help in the long run, or if you are doing some hardcore video editing"

they are opposite sayings, so what do i believe here?

Many INTEL Chipsets cannot use 4 rank or 8 rank memory.

They must be low density 1R /2R or they don't work period end.

The term “rank” was created and defined by JEDEC, the memory industry standards group. On a DDR, DDR2, or DDR3 memory module, each rank has a 64-bit wide data bus.  In its simplest form, a DIMM with DRAM chips on just one side would contain a single 64-bit chunk of data and would be called a single- rank (1R) module.  DIMMs with chips on both sides often contain at  least two 64-bit chunks of data and are referred to as dual-rank (2R) modules.  Some DIMMs can have DRAM chips on both sides but are configured so that they contain two 64-bit data chunks on each side—four in total—and are referred to as quad-rank (4R) modules.

A 32 Bit (x86) operating system can only recognize 4 gB of RAM. Then, some devices take away from that, so the most you'll see is 3.0 to 3.6 gB.

Hello there

I was wondering if upgrading my RAM memory is worth the effort. I'm thinking about going from 4GB DDR3 to 8GB DDR3.

When I upgrade the RAM, will I notify a huge difference or do I just need to keep my 4 GB? I play alot of games, but I never play new games, only games like Call of Duty 4. Old(er) games are the best!

It's not like I really need the 8 GB but I want to be more "future proof".

Because some games of these days require such great specs. My PC (actually a laptop) can run games like Colin Mcrae Dirt 2 pretty good, but sometimes the frames per second (fps) rate goes down, i.e. when I ride thru the grass etc... which is normal.

Look at my specs underneath this post!

A:Upgrading RAM memory from 4 to 8 GB DDR3

Save your money as you wouldn't even notice the extra ram. Nothing you have listed will even be able to take advantage of it. Unless the game/app is 64 bit or large address aware, it can't use more than 2 GB anyway.

Hi there
For Office 2GB RAM is probably OK however I'd look at installing another 2GB RAM.

swapping the HDD for an SSD would certainly help -- For your applications just get a 128 GB one now -- they are very cheap compared with what they used to be -- .

Normally getting an SSD is probably the best improvement you can make to a PC -- but you should normally have 4GB of RAM. A 32 GB SSD is likely to be old and at least an order of magnitude slower than the current crop of SSD's -- a 128 GB Samsung SSD can be had for around 95 USD these days. Well worth it in anybody's book.

You can then also look at using the 500GB disk as an external Disk -- use a SATA ==>USB connector.
(I'm assuming the pavilion is a laptop).

My only query is with a 6 year old laptop -- is the Disk SATA or IDE -- if it's IDE then I really don't know if you could change to an SSD -- probably not.

I have a Matsonic MS9327E+USB mainboard with a pentium 2.4 GHZ processor. It currently operates with two SDRAM 256M memory chips. Recently I purchased a 1GB DDR PC2100 266 MHz Registered ECC 128x72 CL2.5 2.5V 184 Pin DIMM for use as an upgrade. The two SDRAM chips were removed, and then I installed the new DDR. When I tried to boot-up, my monitor stopped working, forcing me to remove the DDR and return to the SDRAM. Is there some kind of programming I need to do; or have I purchased a dud? My OS is XP Home.

A friend told me to upgrade the memory on an Inspiron 8200 laptop. So, I bought 2 of the same(512) things and put them in like he said, but I clicked continue--Now it will not go anywhere (like control panel, solitare etc) What do I have to do now--------

A:problems after upgrading memory

Well if you replaced them while the computer was on, I'm not surprised. :p You need to turn the computer off, unplug it, take out the battery, and then put the memory in. It should be ok when you turn the laptop back on.

Like the title says I just upgraded and I plan to buy more cause I found a great deal on this memory 8GB Kingston HyperX Genesis KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX 1600MHz but I have no clue how good it is. I know by calling Asus it's in the support list for my motherboard I just want to know if this line of memory is good. I plan to upgrade to 16GB of this stuff as long as this is good memory. So far after upgrading from 4GB of OCZ 1066MHz memory to this stuff I see a huge difference so far.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

A:Upgrading the memory and need to know if this is good ram.

Kingston has been in the memory business for a long time (since 1987) and has a good reputation. The HyperX series has also had some very favorable reviews. (You can read some by searching for Kingston HyperX Reviews.) But like many computer related parts and accessories, you're going to find some people who prefer a different brand. Kinda like some folks prefer Ford over Chevy while others prefer Dodge over either Ford or Chevy.

Having said that, I think you'll be pleased with your choice. One thing to be aware of. Increasing from 8GB to 16GB probably won't give you as noticeable an increase in performance as you got from going 4GB to 8GB. But you're making sure your computer will be able to handle future games that will most definitely be more memory intensive than today's games.

Hi folks,

I run an amd 3200+ with a gig of pc3200 ram and an nvidia 6800 128mb.

It's always done me fine, but recently I've been using a lot of maya and photoshop. Large images, while having both apps open, causes hang, worse if I've got the net open too.

If I upgrade to two gigs will I see a significant improvement in this? I'd like to be able to increase the size of my image files, but at the moment I can't.

I can get this:

CT12864Z40B DDR PC3200 ? CL=3 ? Unbuffered ? NON-ECC ? DDR400 ? 2.6V ? 128Meg x 64

for £35 (gbp) per gig. It's basically the same as my current memory, but I'd have two gig sticks instead of two 512 sticks.

Considering the rest of my machine is quite old though, I am just wondering if the memory would make working with multiple applications and large files more practical.

thanks,

gubar
 

A:Considering upgrading memory, is it worth it?

More RAM won't fix your system hangs. New RAM might...

If you are prepared to buy the new RAM, when your computer is running, it will run better. But if the old RAM isn't the source of your hangs the new RAM won't fix it.

I suggest running memtest overnight just to see if your RAM is faulty. Also it is probably worth checking out your Event Viewer in the Admin Tools control panel to see if that provides any clues to your problems.

Hi there,

I can't find any tutos on the internet nor in the Toshiba docs on how to open my laptop.
I would like to upgrade from 8 to 16 GB.

I found a lot of screws on the bottom of it, but it seems there are more under the plastic feet. The problem is I don't want to damage them and I would like a manual to see how to get feet off properly in order to be able to remove those screws...


Regards,

A:Upgrading memory in Portege Z30-B-113

The point why Toshiba does not provide such manual is simply:
The memory in this notebook model isn’t user upgradable part.

This means that removing any covers in order to get access to the memory slots would cancel the warranty.
I think its not worth to risk this....

To keep the warranty valid, the upgrade should be done by authorized service technicians.

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?

A:Upgrading Memory Module

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).
Disconnect the battery and unplug the system before upgrading.

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.
