    Are you positive the memory you purchased is the correct type? Are you adding more memory to what you already have or have you installed brand new memory? Does the laptop work with the previous memory, if so then the "new" memory could be faulty

    According to one of the memory sites I found, this machine can take a max of 512K (2x256K) of PC100 144-pin SODIMM SDRAM. Your upgrade has to match these specs.

    I couldn't find a BIOS upgrade on the Toshiba site, did the upgrade indicate that it would up the RAM capacity?

    Guess I'll try again: are you sure you bought the right memory?

    How much did you have before this, and in what combination) and how are you replacing?

    Give us some specifics and we'll try to help. Usually the beeping means there is a problem with the type of RAM you installed.

    The memory is either the wrong type or it's defective. Verify it's the correct type, and if it is, return it for a replacement.
