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

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

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

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.

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!

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 cannot force anything. Either it works or not.

Anyway, if you use compatible RAMs and if this was worked before I believe slot B is defective.

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.

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

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

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?

My system specs:

Windows 7 Pro SP1 (32bit)
Modell: TECRA R850
Serialno.: 7B042670H
Partno.: PT525E-03E00KGR

Thanks in advanced for your answers!

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.

Hi,

I'm trying one of this popular caddy's that allows me to put a second hard drive in the optical slot bay, I use a Sata to Sata adapter, so there is not really an adapter besides connecting properly:

I have a workaround, if I start the PC, after BIOS post with anything in ODD bay, after starting Windows, I insert the second HDD in the ODD bay, go to "Windows Device Manager" do a "Check for hardware changes" and voil?, the second HDD is working fine, to me this proves a BIOS limitation.

Is there any help, a Beta BIOS or something else, I have the last BIOS 3.00 for this machine installed.

Generally speaking it should not be a big problem to use an SSD instead of an common HDD.
The notebook supports the SATA interface and you have to use an 2.5? SATA SSD drive.

Hi all,

This is a problem I have been facing for about one month.
I've already asked help to the Microsoft support and I manage to circumstance the problem, unfortunately without being able to solve it.
The problem is the following:

Every time I plug an external hard drive via USB I am asked to format it before using it. This of course I do not want to do. This problem appeared all of a sudden, before everything was working perfectly.

My external hard drives work perfectly in other enclosures namely other laptops.

Additionally, if I reboot Windows 7 in the "safe mode" I can connect the external hard drives via USB without problems. It appears it is something I've got recently which is conflicting to my external hard drives.

Could it be any Toshiba update? Do you have any idea about things I could try to locate the problem?

Hi

According notebook specification your Tecra was delivered with preinstalled WIN7 64BIT PROFESSIONAL and you got additional WXP DVD. Original Win7 recovery image was saved on HDD and using preinstalled Toshiba recovery media creator you have had possibility to back-up recovery image and create bootable recovery installation disc.
How it works is described in user?s manuals document.

I don?t know if you have created this disc but now after WXP installation you need this recovery disc. Of course, if you want to have ?factory settings?, you need this disc. Other way, you can obtain Microsoft installation disc and install Win7. All necessary drivers, tools and utilities you can find and download from Toshiba download page.

What?s wrong exactly?

I found some specification of the mentioned SSD drive from Corsair and it looks like the SSD drive is designed to support the latest high-speed standard SATA III (6Gb/s).
But it?s seems to be fully backward compatible with SATA II and SATA I. So it should be compatible?

From my knowledge there are no any special info regarding the SDD dive compatibility.
In some cases the SSD drive manufacturers provides an SSD drive firmware updates and sometimes such update helps to sort out some issues.

A:Which RAM can I use for Tecra 8000

Hi

The Tecra 8000 is an oldie and therefore it needs RAM modules which are not more used in most notebook models.
As far as I know you need the 144-Pin PC100 SODIMM module.

The part number of 128MB is PA3005U

Bye

Hi,

my Tecra A11 with Win 7 Pro 64 and a Mat****a DVD-RAM UJ890AS is not able to burn on a CD-R. CD-RW and DVD is no problem but when trying to burn a CD-R I got following Error Code: 060277-26-2A031000

I tried the solution in
http://forums.toshiba.com/t5/Computer-Troubleshooting/Error-code-380381-26-2a031000/td-p/172666
- without success. There are no upper/lower filter keys in my registry.

I tried CD-Rs from 3 different brands, I tried CDBurnerXP and the Toshiba Disc Creator - always the same error. There is written the track list (copying a music CD) and then the error appears. The CD-R is not usable any more after this.

What can I do? Is it possible to flash the firmware of the DVD-Drive - if yes, where can I get the fw?
Thanks in advance!

A:Tecra A11 - Cannot burn CD-R

Hi

What brands did you try?
I use TDK ?R and they functions properly.

Additionally I recommend cleaning the laser lens using cotton wool tip and alcohol.
Had also problems reading and burning some disks which have been solved after cleaning the lens.

Hi, I've a Tecra that came with Win Pro 7 Sp1 that was upgraded with supplied Recovery DVDs to Win 8 Pro and subsequently online to 8.1 and Win 10.
Win 8 and 8.1 ran fine but with so many problems on Win 10, I eventually went for "scratch" install with the recovery Win 8 DVDs.

Zapped the entire HDD using the Recovery DVDs but finally get the following msg after Win 8 had been re-installed: "Windows Setup could not configure Windows to run on this computer"
Ran "MSoobe" , as recommended on other forums and while this advanced the process, Windows ultimately did not run.

Any ideas anyone?
Thanks - davidtjm

Hi,

I would like do a multiboot XP / 98 on a TECRA A11.
Do you think it's possible.
Will I have some drivers dysfonction?

Thanks for answer !!

A:Tecra A11 - Win XP and Win 98 multiboot

Well, Win XP installation should not be a big problem because the Win XP drivers seem to be available on Toshiba European driver page.

But Win 98 might be a problem here since its not supported and the drivers are not available? you will need to search for such drivers at your hand and I think this might be a painful time? I doubt you will be able to get Win 98 drivers because this OS is really, really old.

I would recommend installing the Win 98 only using Virtual Machine (VM) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_machine
or Virtual PC
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Virtual_PC

This is very easy? running Win XP you can open virtual PC or VM and could start the Win 98

Hi. I've got a failing hard disk in my Tecra, the existing disk is a Fujitsu MHZ2120BH G1. In an ideal world I would swap this disk for a solid state but I'm wary having read of others' problems installing SSDs. Has anyone any experience of successfully (or otherwise!) of doing this. Alternatively, I'm quite content to stick with a HDD but I wonder whether I can increase the size of the disk from the existing 120Gb? I've got some vague memory of having read about a limit on the size this laptop will take. Thanks.

Hello at all,
I have some Problems with the sound of my Toshiba Tecra A10. I already installed the Realtek Audio Driver and I see the little Speaker symbol down on the right side,too.

But I hear nothing. The Device Manager has a yellow Question Mark on "Modem Device on High Definition Audio Bus".

I Installed the Agere Systems Modem, but nothing happened.

Can someone help me and give me a link for this Driver I need.
I use Windows XP.

Hardware Detail:

HDAUDIO\FUNC_02&VEN_11C1&DEV_1040&SUBSYS_11790001& REV_1002\4&9E9AEC4&0&0101

Regards,

A:Tecra A10 - No Sound using Win XP

> I use Windows XP.

Ok, I though similar issues with Win XP on other notebooks with new HD audio from Realtek.
The point is that you need SP2 and SP3!

The SP2 and SP3 provides important fixes and patches for HD audio?
So first of all uninstall the installed Realtek audio driver.
Then install the SP2 and SP3.
Then go to the device manager and delete the devices marked with yellow exclamation mark.
Then reboot the notebook.
Now Win XP should found a new audio device and should ask for the driver.
No you should install the sound driver from Realtek.
Reboot once again? and now the sound should works fine?

My TECRA A7 has a 100GB HD and I wonder if I can replace it for a larger one.
Is it possible and what should I do?

Thanks for any help

A:HDD upgrade on Tecra A7

Hello

Your Tecra has SATA HDD connector so it should not be problematic to use HDD with higher capacity.
I don?t know which one you want to use but HDD between 200 and 300 GB should be good enough for upgrade.

What do you think about that?

Is there a description available hoe to remove a harddisk in a Tecra R10 and plugin a new harddisc?

A:Tecra R10 - How to remove the HDD?

Hi buddy,

As far as I know the HDD is placed under the notebook cover and therefore a lot of parts must be removed like CD drive, keyboard, base assy, etc.

In my opinion it?s a tricky procedure and should only be done from a notebook technician because a lot of screws must be removed as well.

Is current HDD defective or why you want to exchange it?

I am trying to rebuild a Tecra M3 Model PTM30A-1DD002 for a friend. I have installed Windows XP Professional but each time I try to install a service pack it seems to hang.

I have tried SP1 & SP3 and each time it starts off gets about a minute in and then just sits and does nothing. I left the machine on for a couple of hours and it just doesn't do anything. On SP1 it says it is "backing up files" and SP3 says "Checking Product Code".

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

A:Cannot install SP3 on a Tecra M3

As far as I know Tecra M3 is delivered with WXP SP2 Professional so for WXP installation use Microsoft WXP installations disc with already integrated SP2 or SP3.

Do you have original Toshiba installations disc?
