Tecra M6-EZ6611 RAM Upgrade
I’ve got a Tecra M6-EZ6611 and since it suits me very well, I decided to spend some money to upgrade it. I’ve already successfully replaced the original 80GB HDD, by a new WD 250GB HDD with the support of this forum.
Now it’s time to deal with the RAM. I currently have 1GB of DDR2 PC2-5200 installed in the two existing memory slots (512MB each), and I’m planning to top the machine with the maximum supported memory. I’m running Win XP SP3, and my Tecra BIOS is the Toshiba version 3.60 (26/04/2007).
I’ve been to the Kingston site, and got as a recommendation for upgrading my machine the memory kit # KTT667D2/2G – actually 2 of those kits since, the maximum physical memory supported by the Tecra is 4096MB, again according to Kingston.
Can anyone endorse this recommendation and tell me if I’m in the right direction?
Thanks for any help on this.

You are most definitely going in the right decision. Toshiba has an agreement with Kingston whereby the test, certify and guarantee compatibility with the correct Kingston memory and you've gone to the right place to find out which memory is correct. Note that after you do this replacement, your system will report 4GB of RAM installed and somewhere between 3.2 and 3.5 or so usable. That is normal since the 32-bit OS and hardware is limited to 4GB of memory address space and any memory mapped I/O (graphics card, disk buffers, etc.) will subtract from that.
