[qanda]This thread is about the Toshiba Satellite Pro A120. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi, I’ve got a Toshiba Satellite Pro A120 laptop (model no. PSAC1E-05T021EN) that came fitted with 2x1GB Samsung DDR2 533MHz 200-pin RAM. I want to upgrade to at least 4GB so my first question is: does my machine support more than 2GB RAM?
Motherboard details (From CPU-Z)
Model: Portable PC (0x000003EC - 0x103CB030) version A0
BIOS: ACPI Bios version 3.20
I’ve got my eyes on some 2x2GB Patriot DDR2 800MHz PC2 6400 200-pin RAM that’s going cheap. However, will this be compatible even though frequency is different? Will performance suffer as a result?
Also, I’m hoping to upgrade to 64-bit OS to make the most of my RAM - will my system support this and what’s your advice?
