    Accepts up to 2 Gig (2048Mb) in each slot, up to a max 4Gig (4096Mb) in total
    Using PC4200 Ram

    Did I beat Toshiba Forums?

    Not all rams are the same

    Does the original still work?
    Do you know any other details of the new ram, speed, manufacture

    You can "scan your system" with the working ram in it here: http://www.crucial.com/
    Actually that would work well.

    How did that go?

    please read the ram guide in the guides forum.

    Sorry so slow replying!
    Thanks for the link - the crucial scan confirms that 512mb is the maximum that the laptop will handle, which is a tad annoying but there ya go!!
    thanks again for your help
