    I upgraded my memory form 2Gb (2x1 Gb) to 4Gb (2x2 Gb) with two Kingston memory modules KVR667D2S5/2G (PC2-5300 CL5).
    For two weeks there were no problems but then I got blue screen every time when system boots reffering to I guss memory error.
    I tried to replace memory with original Toshiba's modules but blue screen remains. I have conctacted the service and they say that
    it may be memory incompatibility, virus or hard disk malfunction.
    After few days of working on the solution I reinstal my laptop with Toshiba DVD and replace original memory. Now everything works fine.

    I wonder is Kingston memory cause of my problem or somethig else?
    Does anyone know is Kingston memory KVR667D2S5/2G 2Gb compatibile with Toshiba?

    Hello

    Honestly, the Kingston offers high quality products and, I believe, you are the first one who complains about Kingston RAMs.
    If you visit Kingston webpage you can find list of compatible RAMs. Is your module listed there?

    KTT667D2/2G 2GB DDR2-667 Module is listed on Kingston compatibilyti list for toshiba. I didn't pay much attention when I buy this memory.
    Memory that I have install is KVR6677D2S5/2G and it's not on Kingston memory compatibility list. I can't return or change memory because reseller doesen't have it.
    My question is does anyone know is KVR6677D2S5/2G is compatibille with Toshiba A210 because i really don't know after reinstall of OS was it memory problem or something else (e.g. virus). I jus have no time to insert Kingston modules in my laptop and do the whole process of instalation again.

    Thanks.

    Hi!

    I think Kingston RAM makes no problems in your notebook and as Silas said, these are high quality RAM.

    Many users here wrote that they bough Kingston RAM and I never heard about problems with these RAM.
    For two weeks a I upgraded a notebook with Kingston RAM and it runs perfect.

    Bye

    I've got an answer forom Kingston Customer Service Specialist:

    Dear Mr. Sekovanic,

    Thank you for your e-mail and for your interest in Kingston Technology.

    Please note that the memory module with the part number KVR667D2S5-2G is a ValueRAM generic part, built to industry guidelines meeting the JEDEC standard. As they are not tested on any motherboard, we cannot guarantee compatibility of these modules with a specific system.

    The branded memory module KTT667D2/2G is designed, manufactured and tested in a specific systems or system series, such as the Toshiba Satellite A210-127. Although the technical specifications are quite similar we do not recommend to use the ValueRAM module on a specific system as yours.

    We trust that the above information will be of assistance to you. However, should you have further queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

    .....

    so it's not compatibille.
