  1. im looking to increase the ram on my laptop but when I looked to see the sticks I see only one....and I ws told by various places (bestbuy, fryes and toshiba themselves that I have 2)

    im looking in the bay above the battery with the little chip symbol near it....is this correct?

    You can install up to 8gigs . Just go to the toshiba website. It will scan your computer system and tell you what you need. So will www.crucial. com . My neighbor has the same laptop and just upgrade his to 8 gigs (two 4 gig memory modules) Hope this helps you out.
