Hello, I have a NB 100 with upgraded BIOS. I read that in such a case, the RAM can be extended up to 2 GB. Is it right? And if the answer is yes, what kind of RAM am I supposed to buy?

Thank you

Hi,

According to this specification:

http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/jsp/SUPPORTSECTION/discontinuedProductPage.do?service=UK&toshibaShop=false&com.broadvision.session.new=Yes&PRODUCT_ID=1058530

standard : 1,024 MB
maximum expandability : 1,024 MB
technology : DDR2 RAM (667 MHz)

It supports DDR2 (maximum expandability : 1,024 MB). By the way, what's the Short Model No of your netbook?

Hey,

Itís depending on your chipset and BIOS how much RAM is supported...

What NB100 you have exactly?

Hey,

According the specifications on the Toshiba website, it can only be upgraded to 1GB RAM maximum.

So 1GB is enough.

I have found this article:

Link: [http://www.pbcomp.com.au/toshiba-nb100-notebook.html]

Although it doesn't say 12M specifically, I found my model has the same processor and FSB (533mhz).

On the base of the article, the 1 GB limit is the one Microsoft sets for definition of a Netbook and their supply of the XP licensed media. Thus the 1 GB unit should be replaced by a 2GB one.

I don't know much about NB100 models but borrow from someone memory modules and check if it works. Then, let's know ;)
