Hello! I recently installed more RAM on my Toshiba Satellite L305-S5955. I had purchased 2gig in hoping to add on to the memory. I put in the new ram, computer did not recognize it . Needless to say, my laptop will not recognize any RAM card placed on the top slot. I thought I had been inserting it correctly, I heard the click… What can I do to find the solution?

Thanks

Hi Tanveer, very good decisions for upgrading RAM. Because only RAM upgrade your computer will be run faster. But sorry to see your bad experience for not recognizing your new RAM. In your question, you did not mention about your bus speed for your RAM. Please note one thing and check it. Hope you will get solution about your problem.

First check your previous RAM Bus speed. Toshiba Satellite L305-S5955 Model using DD2 SDRAM 800 Mhz.. So please check Bus speed of your new RAM. I think you bought DDR3. That’s why it is not recognize with your laptop. Cheers

When you are buying another RAM memory card to be added and mix-use with your current memory card, always check first the type of the memory card that is currently attached to your CPU. If you currently have a DDR2 RAM stick in your board’s memory slot, you should also buy a DDR2 RAM memory card. If it is a DDR3, then buy another DDR3.

You can not mix-use different types of memory cards, or else it will not work. You’ll be just wasting your money. If you think that it’s because of the processor that the brand of the memory card is not compatible with your CPU, that’s wrong. That’s a big misconception. RAM memory card can never be mix-use with different types. An SDRAM is for another SDRAM, a DDR1 is for another DDR1, a DDR2 is for another DDR2, a DDR3 is for another DDR3. It is how they were built.

All RAM memory cards are compatible with all types of processors.
