Most laptops have flaps on the bottom that are screwed closed. One of those contains the RAM.

The others usually contain the CPU, HDD, and a mini PCI slot (if it has this).

Generally it should state in your manual what it takes.

PC 100/133

PC 1600

PC 2100

PC 2700

And so on and so fourth

Much older notebooks use 144 Pin SODIMMs

Older notebooks use 200 Pin SODIMMs, these are DDR modules.

Newer laptops 200 Pin SODIMMs, but these are DDR2 modules.

While looking up your TV I believe it read that your laptop takes PC 2700 (333 MHz) 200 Pin SODIMMs.

I'll go recheck that.

Toshiba Satellite M55-S135 Specs. Laptops Specifications.

RAM
  • Installed Size
  • 512 MB / 1.5 GB(max)
  • Technology
  • DDR SDRAM - 333 MHz
  • Memory specification compliance
  • PC2700
It's wicked weird to see it maxes out at 1.5 GB of RAM unless it has 3 slots that take 512MB which I haven't seen a laptop with 3 RAM slots, so the slots probably max out at 768MB each.

Let me know if I found the right laptop computer. Notebook... Whatever they are called.

Okay so the 512 is non-removable and that other slot can take up to a 1 GB DDR 333 SODIMM.

I second the recommendation of Crucial. I've bought and installed their RAM many times and always gotten just what I needed for a competitive price.
