Memory Module Upgrade Dilema

A few years ago I purchased a compatible and exactly precise 4GB Memory Module for a Toshiba Satellite laptop PC basic upgrade (screenshots should be included). I unfortunately only purchased one because a second one is required for the full upgrade. Going through my records lately I can't seem to locate the documentation of the retailer and the item's specifics. There are very simila

r ones available on Amazon, Ebay etc. that I'm reluctant to pursue and purchase because of a possible technical issue that will interfere with the upgrade and harm the PC. If you carry this model I'd definitely be interested! Thanks, Paul paulhewitt1h@att.net

If you’re concerned about compatibility, the best way to correct it is replace the existing modules with a factory matched pair from a reputable vendor that meets what you needs. It’s not worth the effort to try and match up a module you’ll probably never find again since it probably came from a Chinese factory who sold them to the highest bidder willing to print a name on it. Since we don’t know what laptop you have, we can’t help you find a matching set to replace it. It looks like DDR2 (possibly DDR3; hard to tell from your photos) to me based on the place the notch is but I’m not entirely sure without a machine model.

This is also the easiest way to repair a RAM incompatibility as well, since it’s often hard to know why the mixed pair isn’t playing along well and it’s typically a pain to find a compatible enough match. Keep the non matched modules but don’t reinstall them unless you find a exact match or a compatible module to pair it with.
