Toshiba Satellite C55D-B5102

The manual says there’s two memory slots, but not user upgradable. So I guess the one or two sticks are soldered on. Didn’t open it to see.

Manual says nothing about replacing the hard drive. Might be stuck with the slowest possible drive they could find.

According to CPU-Z there’s only one memory stick in it. Should go to Crucial and see how much another 4 GB stick is. But might want to see if anyone has upgraded it by them self.

Good news, it just means there’s no door. A different Toshiba, they said just unscrew the bottom and everything is accessible. Not sure crucial is listing the correct RAM, pretty sure I need DDR3L.

Hmm says the voltage is 1.35v, and that’s what the compatible crucial memory is. You can get 16 GB. But I’m cheap, another 4 GB for 23 bucks is a bargain. Which SSD should I get? Maybe none.

Search Amazon for “4 GB DDR3L”, I will only buy RAM for it that says “DDR3L”, voltage might be right on Crucial’s site, but it doesn’t have an L.

I think Toshiba owns OCZ, so that’s the brand I’ll get for the SSD, if I get a SSD.

Kingston Technology 4GB 1600MHz DDR3L PC3-12800 1.35V Non-ECC CL11 SODIMM Intel Laptop Memory KVR16LS11/4 might work with it. You can get Crucial memory for a little more, it’s in my Intel NUC, and I think it requires DDR3L. Think the L just means lower voltage, apparently the Crucial memory can run at 1.35v or 1.5v.

Oh yeah it has a SD card reader. Didn’t try it yet.


Don’t use an aperture of f2.8 on your camera, if it’s a laptop, or bigger then a phone.
