Re: Tosh 2520 CBT RAM?
The chipsets in some of the older Toshiba (and other) laptops will only
recognize half of the module (or none at all) if the architecture of the
memory module and the chips on the module is newer than that supported
by the chipsets. Conversely, there are a few (very few) 256 meg modules
that will work in these machines, even though 128 meg was the documented
max, if the machine will physically accept them (they need to have 16
chips, and the 16-chip SO-DIMM modules are slightly oversize). All of
this makes buying memory for these machines very, very problematic, you
almost cannot be sure if a given module will or will not work without
actually trying it.
