Ram Upgrade for Toshiba

by Choucko / August 7, 2012 2:22 AM PDT

Hi there,
First post on here, just to ask some questions.
I have a Toshiba Satellite C670 laptop with 6 GB of RAM.
I want an upgrade to 8GB or higher.
My questions are:
1. What types of RAM would you recommend?
2. It says that only 8GB is compatible, but is this true, Can I add more than 8?
3. How can I/you check what Ram is compatible?

Thanks in advance,

2. I did this to my machine and can't say it had much benefit. The only thing I was able to do was to give VirtualBox more RAM for some work I was doing and the benefit was marginal. It was there and for the 40 or less bucks it's not a bad deal.

3. has a software to pick the right stick.

I know it says that it will only recognise an 8GB maximum, but what if I were to put even more RAM in it. like 16. I know that much isn't necessary but would it recognise it.

If you try something like add more than supported.

It may or may not work. No one I knows will support or offer memory if it's not supported because you might want to return it. Waste of everyone's time and then it's used goods. Sounds like an expensive thing to try.

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
