    Hello!

    I need help or advice.

    I plan to add memory then to intall Windows 7 on my Satellite A100

    1. I want to install two DDR2 SO-DIMM of 2 gig. Can you confirm that my A100 will see 2 memory modules of 2 gig (4 gig together)?
    2. I think that my computer can work only with windows 7 32 bit, am I right?
    3. I found on the site Toshiba drivers for windows 7 32 bit. So in theory it's quite possible.

    But has anybody already installed windows 7 on satellitte A100? I 'd like to know results.


    Thank you.

    This depends on the chipset which is available on the motherboard.
    For example; the A100 with an Intel 945PM Express chipset would be able to handle 4GB RAM.

    No, you can also use 64bit OS\

    You can install Win 7 32bit and 64bit… 32bit and 64bit drivers you will need to search in at your own hand

    Hi Anastacia_R,

    Before we start a long discussion it would be interesting to know what Satellite A100 model you have exactly and if it support 4GB RAM or not.

    If it doesn’t support 4GB RAM you can install Windows 7 32bit because it supports up to 3.2GB RAM and this would be enough if your notebook support only 2GB RAM.
    Otherwise you can also install 64bit version if you can get all drivers for it.
