    Toshiba Satellite 315CDS RAM upgrade

    hi all
    here is the story
    i got a second hand toshiba satellite 315cds
    very good condition - almost never used
    got it very cheap
    it works just fine
    i installed win 98se with all possible updates
    and all possible updates from toshiba - drivers, bios etc

    BUT - it works a bit slowly and i'd like to ugrade it
    so the best choice is to change ram

    and here where the problems begin...
    according to the original specifications from toshiba
    this model can work with maximum 160mb ram
    that cute number is a result of the sum of nonremovable ram[32]
    and the obvious 128 additional removable one stick ram

    no limmitations on ram manifacturer whatsoever

    but i check The Toshiba Computing Forum and i see that the only supported ram is kingston

    i go to kingston.com and i see that
    satellite315cds is ram-upgradable up to 80mb!
    that is half of what toshiba.com says

    anyway - i decide to test it
    i get a cheap samsung 128 ram pc133
    and it fits nicely in the slot
    but the pc wont recognize it

    so please if anyone here has gone through this
    or knows what to do - help me

    thanks a bunch

    See if there are any bios updates that would help address this issue.
