Toshiba laptop memory specification

Before upgrading your Toshiba laptop memory, you should know how much memory is supported by your laptop and the type of memory used.


Memory type
There are at least three types of memory used in modern laptop computers: DDR, DDR2, and DDR3 SDRAM. Most recent laptops support DDR3 memory type.


You can easily differentiate the type of memory used in your laptop by referring your system manual or read the label tag found on the existing memory chip. You can also find the data sheet for your laptop memory type, size and speed by entering memory tag number on search engines.


Memory size
Memory chips are available in several capacities: 512MB, 1GB, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB are the most common memory chips available on the market.


Maximum memory supported and speed
Every laptop computer has maximum limitation of memory usage. If you install a memory chip greater than the system supports, your laptop either won’t recognize it or unable to load Windows properly. Speed of memory is the other factor you should understand.

Regarding the speed of memory, you must install a memory with the same speed of the existing memory or higher. You may consult your system manual for additional information.

Total Memory slots
The memory slots refer the number of slots available on the motherboard. Some laptops have only one slot and most laptop models have two slots.

As an example, here I have listed memory information for some of the models of Toshiba laptops. Your laptop model might not be listed here, but, it would help you to figure out yours as well.
The list mentions:-

  1. The type of Toshiba laptop memory used,

  2. Number of available memory slots and

  3. Maximum memory supported by the specific laptop model
