A. Toshiba Laptops come with two memory slots, sometimes one.
b. Both slots will normally be filled

SO you will most likely be pulling out a 2Gb to replace it with a 4Gb.

I suggest going to a memory sellers website and doing a lookup to be sure you get the right memory.
I would go to Toshiba and download the user guide and see what it shows.

Go to the download tab for the guide.
The login below that is to use their forums.

well according to Toshiba's website here - http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/products/computers/satellite/l850/pskdla-0cc00r/specifications#details
That one slot is used and one slot is available.

They could be doing things different there.
I'm in the USA and they seem to use both slots here in their laptops.
To put it another way that may be a paradigm shift.
It would definitely be better for the buyer.
I say that since as Many Toshiba laptops as I've opened I have never seen a empty slot in one here in the USA.

go to crucial.com and let them run a little scan to see what your system will handle and just go from there

With my Toshiba, i have spare slot which i can upgrade to 4GB of ram. Not sure which state your from but you can simply go to a local computer store like MSY which is basically the cheapest around or Centrecom.

In my opinion 4Gb isn't bad. I run my laptops on Windows 7 with 3Gb and One desktop with 4Gb and the other with 6Gb.
The only reason for the 6GB on that one was it uses triple channel memory. Original I7.

according to help i got from Toshiba forums - this ram should do the trick in adding another 4GB - http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/products/accessories/memory/ktt-s3b/4g

But ouch $88AUD is expensive.

Well i don't want to buy cheap nasty ram, one should buy a good quality module i guess.
