Thread: NB520 - Upgrade to 4GB RAM

  1. NB520 - Upgrade to 4GB RAM

    I gave a try to upgading NB520 memory to 4GB (I read the manual, I know it says maximun 2GB), just in case.
    Sorry to say it didn't boot. It is not a materof windows 32bit or 64bit because BIOS (1.5 and 1.9) got stuck before passing control to windows.
    Module used was KINGSTON 1066 CL7:

    I read somewhere somebody was using 4GB on a NB.
    Did someone tried 4GB?. Is it really working ?
    Any BIOS trick for making it work?

    The Intel Atom CPU is not capable of 4GB, there is no way around it.

    I think you were thinking of the AMD Hudson platform (NB550D) which may be capable of 4GB.

    Thanks Akuma.
    Actually it is all very confusing to me, while Intel specs say:
    Max Memory Size 2GB (dependent on memory type)


    (Don't know what they mean by "depending on memory type")

    Seamicro produces a multiprocessor based on N570 where each one can handle 4GB.



    That's why i thought it's a toshiba BIOS limitation.
    Or perhaps Intel makes several product lines of N570.
