Hi all,

I'm curious about this because when fixing this particular laptop I have, I need to know if the motherboard can handle this amount of ram.  If anyone has one of these, and can tell me, please let me know.  there is nothing on the current internet about this; I haven't searched the way back machine yet; I figured it'd be quicker just to ask here LOL.

According to: http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=2480

It can handle: 1.5GB DDR2 533mhz RAM (512MB stock)

okay thanks.  I'll have to see if the RAM I have will work with this computer; my friend has a similar computer, but it's a different model, so the modules she gave me might be the same or different; i'll have to check.

If you guys are wondering what happened to this computer. The repair didn't go well.  In fact, I killed it.  I attempted to replace both the CMOS batterry and the hard drive, the CMOS, which it was highly unnecessary to replace due to the rechargeability of NIMH batteries.  I should have known that, for there was a damaged screw close to the system board, and I didn't have a reverse drill bit to remove the screw.  All I had was a file, which my friend helped me to use, and in removing the damaged and stripped screw that way, she accidentally made a tiny mark on the motherboard and the computer died for good after that, so, the 2005, Toshiba Portege S100-S113TD laptop, which lasted for eight and a half years, is dead.  I didn't think I'd find a motherboard suitable for it in this day and age, and I wonder whether I had made a mistake on that assumption and didn't trust my instincts, as a result, I lost my first computer I ever owned.
