Memory Upgrade for Toshiba Satellite 1900-305

Okay, so this might sound stupid, but anyway....

I'm upgrading the memory on my laptop (Toshiba Satellite 1900-305) and according to my user manual I've got room for 2 512Mb SODIMM modules.  However, removing the memory module compartment cover reveals only 1 memory module.  There must be another one somewhere (the module in the compartment only accounts for half the RAM on my laptop at present) but I'm at a loss to work out where.  I've taken out all the parts I dare remove (DVD drive, floppy drive, hard disk, battery, etc) looking for another module but can't find one.  The user manual sheds no light on the subject and I can't find a service manual.

I know it's a rather odd question, but can anyone help?

Thanks in advance,
Continuity.

Looks like you're in the UK as that model isn't listed on Toshiba's US web site.

Wow, that user's guide is a waste of time. The Product Specification page for that model says the maximum memory is 768MB. This makes me think that there is only one slot, and that the other 256MB is soldered in. Then again, that same page says there are two slots. Maybe one of them is buried deep inside the machine.

Call your local store that sells Toshibas, or call a vendor who sells memory for your laptop and ask him how to do it. Someone who can make a sale has an interest in making sure it works well. Find a shop that has free installation and make it their problem.

I couldn't find a technical manual for that machine online.
