We could give a try at finding the ram, but we need the make and model of the laptop.

All i know of it is that it is a Toshiba Satellite laptop with a 1.1 ghz processor and 512mb of ram. The model number underneath does not register on the toshiba website for some reason, but its a PS183e according to the sticker. Is there any ram that is PC083? I looked on crucial for sdram but it brought up a minimum of pc100.

You can also go from this page to look up your drivers. Your other post: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...tml#entry597252 entitled VGA Drivers.
