Season Greetings to the BC community, I am looking for some advice on a Toshiba Satellite Laptop Model A305-S6905, 500 GB Seagate, 3GB PC6400 DDR2 SDRAM, Win 7 Professional. This was a salvaged Vista computer for my son, who is, shall we say, economically disadvantaged at this time. Long story short, a friend in IT threw a salvaged HD on it and said, "it'l take win 7" I assumed that he was talking Home Premium. It works OK, BUT, it seems to think for a while when you do any thing with it, eg work on Word docs.
I understand that win 7 likes about 8 gigs, but the specs on the Toshiba say that 4 Gb is max, so, buy a 2 GB chip and call that george? Are there 4 GB chips that will work in this machine and if so will it improve the performance? Thanks, TerryV.
