Satellite P50-C-17D memory expansion question

Q: Satellite P50-C-17D memory expansion question


I really enjoy this new laptop. Only having this problem with memory expansion.
It currently has a M2 256gb SSD built in, and I want a 2,5'' 500gb HDD in it aswell.
Therefor I need a bracket.
I have found a picture of this bracket, add in attachments.
Found on the following site (picture 4/8):
In this picture is no M2 slot to be seen.
Looks like only one of these posibilties has been add into the laptop.

Question is; where can I find this bracket, so I can add more memory to my laptop?

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi new to this forum I tried to find a direct contact to ask this but could not locate any email options on the website only phone numbers which aren't an option right now as I have other obligations during business hours at the moment I'm a computer technician of years and have today purchased a new Satellite Pro R -C PS A- with an i - U GB of RAM and TB HDD Notebook for a customer of mine He has requested an additional GB of RAM Memory R50-C upgrade Satellite - question which I purchased at the same time from my wholesaler On opening the box I discovered there is no access to the memory slots or the Hard Drive The Toshiba Website states in the specs that the RAM is expandable to GB but it appears the back cover has to be fully removed to gain access I would like to check if I remove the back cover will this void the warranty The specifications on the Satellite R50-C - Memory upgrade question Toshiba website do not state that it is not user accessible to change the RAM where as from the research I did for the customer other cheaper models do state this I have sold Toshiba and other brands Notebooks in the past and have always ensured that the specifications for the laptop did not say the RAM was non user accessible and as such that I would be able to upgrade the RAM as customers request As above I just wish to check that upgrading the RAM on this laptop will not void the Toshiba warranty since the specifications do state that the laptop is expandable to GB of RAM and do not state that it is not user accessible upgradeable Cheers Peter

A:Question about memory upgrade (4 GB) on Satellite P200

You have to use compatible modules!
You have to use the DDR2 667MHz (PC2-5300) 200-PIN SODIMM

If you already use such modules then I?m afraid a memory malfunctions.

Try with other modules!
Relevancy 59.34%

I have an ACER aspire 5733.  It came with both memory slots filled, one DIMM0 with a Kingston DDR3 1024mb PC3-10700 (667 MHz) and the other, DIMM1 with a Kingston DDR3 4096 MBytes PC3-10700 (667 MHz).  I'd like to replace the smaller one with another 4gb stick so that it performs a little better, and is more likely to cope with Windows 10, but I can't work out how to idenitfy the right one to buy. Which specification is most important to match. Is the Mhz important ?  Some UK sites don't quote a mhz number on what seem to be the right sticks.  how do I work out what pin I need? any help most welcome

Hi everybody. I have a question a bit strange/or difficult! I'm using Dell Dimension E521. I have 4 (four) slots to add more RAM memory. I have it filled with 4 (four) 512 MB RAM modules. I have a feeling that I need a bit more. What can I do? My motherboard supports only 2 gigabytes all together. Wondering if there is anything I can buy (a link for the item please) to add another 2 gigabytes? It can be something what I can plug in to one of my USB outlets. Or do you think the existing 2046 MB of RAM memory is enough for me?
(How difficult would it be to install a different motherboard? I donít really understand what can I do with a Processor chip itself?)

I was wanting to pursue the memory upgrade for my 6 GB you have the precise name/type of modules to perform either the 8 GB or 16 GB upgrade? I am a poweruser/programmer and would benefit from more memory. Thanks, Joe

A:Memory upgrade/expansion for HP-ac143wm

Here is the Service manual: Manual p. 2 the Manual says 8 gigs is the max. I personally think it will take 16 gigs since it will take an 8 gig module, but to be safe assume 8 is the max.  To go from 6 gigs to 8 gigs you have to discard the existing 2 gig module and replace it with a 4 gig module.  How to on p. 46: 4-GB (PC3L, 12800, 1600-MHz) 691740-005 This is really only supposed to be done by an authorized technician to keep the warranty, but it is actually not terribly hard to do. There are a lot of screws involved, however so if you are not used to tech work you might want to take it to a shop.  Post back if you need more help. the 6 gig to 8 gig upgrade should be somewhat noticeable and does enable dual channel memory operation which is a bit faster than single channel and the extra 2 gigs is needed by any intensive computing. 8 to 16 gigs might not even be noticeable.  This is the module you need: If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

A:XC-704 Expansion Slot & Memory Upgrade

Ok, Sorry looking up the model at Kingston and a couple other sites didn't show your computer and seeing I hadn't seen any I was confused. Based on what I have found maybe a Model from other country.  With that said it looks like it comes with 2gig DDR3L Ram and is Upgradable to 8Gig Also looks like yours comes With 1 PCI Express x16 Slot. I am not sure with the PSU and with that slot if you would be able to upgrade to a different Graphics Card. GPU and size of case would put a huge limit on what could be able to fit...  James

They have others that are just SSD and some that have 2 spaces for SSD on the card but may not work for your space as they are longer cards.

If you can get the same kit again it would be best but if you can get a kit with the same timings, speed, and voltage you should be okay.

A:Satellite Pro R50-B-12U and memory upgrade


The Satellite R50 does not contain separate memory bay.
The memory modules and slots are hidden under the bottom cover.

In order to get access to the modules, the bottom cover has to be removed.
But I would not recommend doing this because this would cancel the warranty!!!

I guess your warranty is still valid and in such case only authorized technician should perform such upgrade to keep the warranty valid.

A:Satellite Pro C70-B-11T - need help in order to upgrade memory

RAM upgrade on this Satellite Pro is a bit complicated and I think it should not be done by notebook owner.
Problem is that you will have full access to memory slots if upper notebook cover is completely removed and it should be done by Toshiba service only. In case that you do it on your own you can lose valid warranty.

Try to contact nearest Toshiba service and ask for help. They can do this for you and I think it cannot be so expensive.

Do you want to extend the notebook?s memory or HDD?
I think in your post you are talking about the ExpressCard Slot or Smart Card slot (this depends on the model you have purchased)
This slot handles the ExpressCards or Smart Cards

Here is a nice Wikipedia article about Express Cards:

There are different ExpressCards on the market. You can use the SSD Express Cards or HDD Express Card to extend the storage or you can use Express Cards in order to upgrade the notebook with an TV tuner, 3G or similar?

How can I upgrade my laptop memory? There isn't a memory slot at the bottom of the laptop.

A:I can't find the memory slot to Satellite S70-B-10V

Memory slots on this notebook model are placed under the bottom cover so when RAM modules must be exchanged or upgraded bottom cover must be removed.
Please note: on some notebook models RAM upgrade is supported by notebook owners and RAM upgrade steps are described in user?s manuals document.

I your case such upgrade is not supported and RAM upgrade should be done by authorized service provider.
Generally speaking bottom cover removal is not complicated but you should not do it alone. This will cancel valid warranty.

In my opinion, before you do anything contact nearest Toshiba service provider in your country and ask for help. Simply pick up some info about price and compatible RAM modules.

if i use a single module of the new memories, the system is not booting again.

looking at the datasheet the motherboard should support the 2x1Gb memory upgrade.

Theoretically it should be possible to use 4GB in this notebook.

I always use Kingston modules for upgrading my notebook. I never had any problems with these modules so you should try it to.

I have checked the user manual of Satellite M40x (it can be downloaded on the Toshiba website) and if you look on page 8-7 you can find a description how to upgrade the memory.

In my opinion the 512MB that you already have is an integrated RAM that can?t be upgraded because on the bottom side of the notebook is only one memory slot.

However, I think it?s not a problem to use an additional RAM module but maybe the new RAM is not full compatible with your notebook.
What type of memory did you bought exactly? Maybe you should try it with another one.

I have just tried to add 516MB in my memory expansion slot, but the additional memory has not been recognised. The notebook boots up fine, but only shows 465MB available.

I have tried switching the original and new memory cards, and either card in either slot ( 0 or 1) on their own works as a 516(which proved both cards and both slots are working) but together they still show as only one in use.

Has anyone any ideas on what the problem might be, and how to get it to use them together?

A:Satellite M50 Memory upgrade problems

The 465MB is normal, because of the shared video memory. If I understand you correctly, both modules plugged in, only show 512MB?
Maybe you should perform a BIOS update. Could help. You can find an update at the emea support&download page.

Do both modules meet the needed specifications? They should be PC2700 DDR-RAM.

Good afternoon.
is Toshiba T230-113
2GB of memory installed
Hynix 2Gb 2Rx8 PC3-8500S-7-10-F2

I want to upgrade to 4 GB, it is better to choose?
2x2Gb or 1x4Gb?

Will the two-channel mode?

Thank you

A:Memory upgrade on Satellite T230-113

I have checked specification for your mobile unit and it should have 4 GB inside.
Anyway it can be upgraded up to 8 GB so maybe you should buy one module with 4 GB and put one old module as second RAM. One day you can put second 4GB RAM and use maximum possible RAM with your Satellite T230-113.

I have a S300 with 3Gb RAM and want to upgrade to 4Gb. There are two memory cards in the machine, both with 4 chips. What do I need to do to increase the capacity? I'm guessing I will need to replace both cards with a matched pair of 2Gb cards.

Many thanks,

A:Upgrading memory on a Satellite Pro S300

Yes, you will need to use 2 x 2GB RAM modules.
I guess the DDR2 800MHz SO-DIMM should be compatible.

I have a Satellite Pro P100 ( P6PA4E-002001EN ) with just 512 MB of memory and wish to know if it can be increased and if so what memory would I have to buy and is it a simple task to open the machine and fit it?

A:Can I increase memory on my old Satellite Pro P100?


You can increase memory on this older notebook to amazing 4GB of RAM.

Compatible RAM modules that you can use for upgrade:
PA3511U-1M51 (DDR2-667 512MB Memory Kit)
PA3512U-1M1G (DDR2-667 1GB Memory Kit)
PA3513U-1M2G (DDR2-667 2GB Memory Kit)

Check bottom side of your notebook and there you should find Ram cover probably fixed with one screw. Remove it and you will have access to memory slots.

I was able to update the BIOS for my Satellite A665-S6086 by burning the 2.30 update to a CD. I have Windows 7 64-bit. I needed to update the BIOS because I'm upgrading my RAM/memory from two 2GB cards (total 4GB) to two 4GB (total 8GB) cards.

My issue now is when I start my computer with the new RAM/memory (two cards that are KTT-S3BS/4G Kingston DDR3 1333MHZ SODIMM SGL RANK), it freezes on the Starting Windows screen. Then when I hold the power button to shut it down and restart it, it wants to start using Windows Repair, but then freezes again. When I put in the old memory and start it back up, it starts the Windows Repair and runs normally.

What can I do to make my computer run with the new memory?

Thank you very much in advance!

A:What can I do to make Satellite A665-S6086 run with new memory?

What you can do?
Buy another RAM modules which are fully compatible with the notebook.
It looks like you want to use RAM modules which are not fully compatible and therefore the system freezes.

By the way: the CPU which is used in this notebook handles the DDR3-800 and DDR3-1066
RAM modules.

I would not recommend you to use the DDR3-1333 modules but PA3677U-1M4G 4GB DDR3-1066

A:Satellite Z830 - I wonder if the motherboard supports more than 6GB memory

>I wonder if the motherboard supports more than 6 Gb ddr ram.

The chipset is responsible for the RAM
So you have to know if the chipset would support the 6GB RAM,.

The Z830-10w supports the Mobile Intel(R) HM65 Express Chipset and it should support 8GB RAM

From my knowledge the unit is equipped with one 2GB internal RAM which is NOT removable.
You can upgrade ONLY one slot?
So one slot can handle 4GB RAM and in such case the 6GB RAM are supported.

Most of S70-A notebooks are offered with DVD-multi optical disc drives. Just few of them are offered with 9.5MM BD-ROM. Unfortunately I don't know which model of BD-ROM is this exactly.
It is not easy to find any information which model can be used on your machine.

I can understand DSL, Dial-up & cable being slow because it travels thru wire, but not satellite.TIA

A:A question about DSL, dial-up, cable & satellite

Satelite broadband has high latency due to the signal being bounced from earth to space and back again. ( around 22 miles). Other conditions such as weather and line of sight can also affect performance.

A:Satellite M50-A-110: Question about Windows 10 recovery

Have you created recovery media (DVD or USB stick)?
If yes you can do with your notebook whatever you want and make experiments with upgrade and Windows 10.
Using this created media you can roll back your original OS version that you got with your Satellite notebook.

If you don't have it but you still have original OS version please create this media and make recovery image back-up. After Win10 upgrade you will probably not be able to start HDD recovery image installation. Be careful about that.

Hello Thomas

Your notebook has an Intel Dual Core T3400 processor and 667Mhz FSB and 1MB cache only. And you are in Vista 32 bit. Your DDRII RAM is of 800 MHz. All this does not allow you to speed up your system.

If you want to upgrade to speed up your system, you need:
- Either change your processor by a more powerful dual-core (1066 MHz FSB as P300-20E eg with a 3MB cache).
- Or place your system on a 250 GB SSD drive (I recommend the Samsung 850 EVO 250 Gb), the migration of your HDD to the SSD software is included in the Samsung box). Modified the price is less than € 100.

I think for a beginner computer the most effective solution is the latter, especially since it is not easy to find a P8600 processor to replace your T3400.

Take the opportunity to buy a dry air bomb to remove the dust from the ventilation of your laptop.

Good luck and good Christmas holidays.

I assume the 9.66GB partition called recovery partition is created for HDD recovery.
You can recover the notebook using HDD recovery and this does not require the recovery disk or recovery USB memory stick.
But I would not recommend deleting this partition because you would lose the possibility to recover the unit by HDD recovery?

>2. What is the EFI partition for?
EFi partition contains the boot loader program for all operating systems installed (in other partitions) on the HDD. So don?t touch it.

I have a Satellite A350 with Vista installed. When I run the Win 7 upgrade assistant it says I can install Win 7 Home Premium or Ultimate... but my question is: I have an install disc for Win 7 Professional, can I upgrade to this version of Win 7?

Hi everybody,

I just would like to know if the drivers available for Satellite L850-16D under the title "windows 8 upgrade" are good also for a total fresh installation of windows 8 64 bit, or if they are only good for an upgrade to it from windows 7 64 bit.


A:Question about Windows 8 drivers for Satellite L850-16D


The Win 8 Upgrade Assistant connects to an driver server and downloads the Win 8 drivers for the notebook.
This should function also with clean Win 8 installation.

But don?t forget to create a Toshiba Recover disk before switching to Win 8.
The recover disk allows you to go back to Win 7 if you would like to use the Win 7 in the future..

A friend of mine is going to New Zealand next week and will take his Toshiba Satellite laptop with him. I don't have the model number handy, unfortunately.

He's looking for a converter he can use for the wall power outlet. He will plug his AC adapter into the converter and that into the wall outlet so he can charge his laptop. He found a converter that is advised to NOT be used with electronic devices that use more than 25W and I'm thinking his laptop does. His laptop is 3-5 years old, probably leaning more toward 5 yrs.

I don't know what kind of power rating (voltage or wattage, I'm not good at this stuff) New Zealand has so I'm not sure what kind of conversion options he has. His laptop was purchased in the US.

Any tips or advice?



A:Question about Toshiba Satellite laptop and power conversion

Might want to look through this page.
Will probably need the transformer and an adapter plug.
Information about how much power is needed.
Might be easier if they picked one up after they get there.
They can be a bit heavy.

I have upgraded my laptop to Windows 10 and have since made a USB recovery disk using the Toshiba Recovery Media Creator; my question is will it recover to Windows 10 or the original Windows 8.1?

Also are all the drivers and software recovered?

Thanks for your patience - I'm fairly new to this!

A:Satellite P50-C-128 - Windows 10 upgraded - recovery media question

Did you create a recovery USB flash memory stick before the Windows 10 upgrade?

Usually the Toshiba recovery medium would set the notebook back to factory settings… to the same system which was preinstalled at the beginning.

Hi there!

I would like to use my S300 10J for acoustical measurements on speakers. (DIY)

For that setup, I'm using an electret microphone, the IBF EMM-08:

for power, this is what it needs: 1.5 - 10V / approx. 0.5 mA

Does the s300-10J supply that or not ?

Anyone that can recoomend an external soundcard that has that supply? (if my laptop doesn't )

Thanx in advance,
Bart Segers

A:Satellite Pro S300-10J - Question about the microphone voltage supply


I cannot provide you any details about the microphone voltage of satellite Pro S300 because I didn?t find any details regarding the voltage of mic jack but I assume it?s a standard voltage like on other, different notebooks.

As far as I know the notebooks supports external microphone which need 1.5V DC.
So I would assume that the S300 would support this too.

This is everything what I can say about this.

A:Satellite R830: Question regarding power options for battery usage

Hi mate

I think this Toshiba document should help you to get best power settings

+How to handle the power management features of Windows 7+

Usually if the battery is fully charged, the battery indicator should switch from orange to blue (or green).
If it does not switch then this means that the battery still charging.

after win 8.1 installation in old Toshiba A200 - everything is ok except yellow question mark in "Mass storage controller" in device manager. As a result sd card reader is useless.

Have any idea which is the driver for Win 8.1?

A:Satellite A200 - Win 8.1 : Mass storage controller yellow question mark


Please don't understand me wrong but I hope that you know how old A200 is. Even newer machines are not supported for Win8.
So, I can understand that you want to use newest OS on this old piece of hardware and if most of the things work pretty well you should be satisfied.
In this situation when you use 8 years old machine designed for Vista and definitely not supported for Win8/Win8.1 ..... who cares about SD card reader. You know what I mean? ;)

Simply disable this device in device manager and be happy.

How can a person tell the difference between a SIMM & DIMM chip? Is it that a SIMM uses a single slot and a DIMM is divided into 2 slots? I have seen chips that would be divided into 3 sections, but not a clue what that would be.

Thanks for your help.
