VIA P4M266 Motherboard

I am having a VIA P4M266 motherboard of 2002 make. I am having two SDRAM modules of 128MB 133MHz.But the system is showing only 128MB,whereas when is run some software to check my RAM it shows that both modules in both the slots are working. That motherboard is having slots for DDR 266MHz modules with jumper settings,but recently I tried to upgrade my system with a 512 MB DDR 133MHz but the system didn't boot.

What may be the problem and how to rectify it?

Should I buy a new motherboard?

Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Unfortunately, this first generation P4 motherboards are a bit strict on the memories that they recognized. Your particular motherboard to my knowledge only accepts either PC100/133 SDRAMs or DDR200/266 which were made on or before 2002. This has nothing to do with frequency but with the recognition architecture of these older boards. Often newer memories would not be recognized or even if they are, the capacity would be halved.

Depending on the specs of your processor and replacement availability, you might be better off purchasing a newer motherboard.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

IBM T23 wont turn on after adding new RAM


Hi - according to memory suppliers your T23 has the following memory capacity / requirements:

  • IBM ThinkPad T23 maximum RAM capacity: 1GB
  • Your IBM has Two (2) memory slots or sockets
  • Module upgrade PIN count is: 144-PIN
  • The memory speed is: SDRAM 133MHz, PC133
  • The laptop DIMM type for the ThinkPad T23 is: SODIMM, SO-DIMM, Small Outline DIMM
  • Non ECC

If you are meeting these requirements, you may have a defective module.

Also, according to Lenovo's page on the machine:

Memory
The system has 128MB or 256MB of memory standard and can be configured for up to 1GB of addressable memory. Memory options up to 512MB SDRAM SO DIMMs each can be added in the two available slots for memory expansion. The standard 128MB of memory is expandable up to 640MB and the 256MB of memory is expandable up to 768 MB of addressable memory with 64, 128, 256, or 512MB SO DIMMs without removing the 128MB SO DIMM that is standard in one of the internal slots for memory. For customers that need the maximum 1GB to which memory can be expanded, it is necessary to replace the 128MB or 256MB card with a 512MB card plus add another 512MB card in the extra slot. Only 133MHz DIMM memory can be used in this system. The use of 100MHz DIMM memory is not supported in the T23 systems.

This means yo can trouble shoot the 512MB modules individually by installing one of the original 128MB modules and one of the new 512MB modules (for a total system memory of 640MB). If it does not boot, try again with the other 512MB module. This will help you identify a defective module that may be preventing the machine from booting.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Your motherboard works only with 100 or 133 MHz memory modules.
You hear the beeps because the motherboard is telling you that the memory is not compatible with the board.
The processor is not the problem.

I NEED RAM


Hi zouganeli,

You can install one, two or three modules. Each memory module can hold a maximum capacity of 128 MB of standard SDRAM chips, or 256 MB of registered SDRAM chips so maximum memory capacity is 384 MB of standard SDRAM memory or 768 MB registered SDRAM memory.

Hope that helps

Take care,

Michael
