Thinkpad SL300 (Fans always on)

I just purchased a new Thinkpad SL300 ( Intel 8400, 2.2Ghz, 4 gigs ram,Vista Business 32 bit, Centrino 2, Nvidia 128 meg.

I am in love with this laptop, however, it is annoying that as soon as I turn my laptop on the fans start to blow and never stop until I turn the laptop off.
The fans never get faster or slower, they are always at the same speed, no matter if it is on AC or battery. No matter if under power management I set it up for fan sound level at the minimum or maximum..... It is just always the same medium speed. The laptop runs really cool though.
I have read on the Thinkpad forums that many users of te SL series complain also about the fans that never cycle. However, Lenovo's support just told me that if the fans are on is ok......

I have Bios 1.12 installed on my laptop and the latest on the website is 1.08 go figure. On the other hand, all countries have 1.08 as the latest but Japan, which has 1.14 that is supposed to be newer than mine. Would it be ok to install it on mi laptop? My fear is that the instructions might be in japanese....

I also found this software, http://www.staff.uni-marburg.de/~schmitzr/donate.html , any idea if this would work in my laptop?

Thanks

I want to add more RAM. Is it possible?? Worth it??


It Depends On How much ram you are running now. More ram is Always A good Thing.
However, The Amount of Installable Ram Depends On the Operating System you are running.

Windows XP, Vista, and 7 32 bit (x86) systems only except up to 4 gigs of ram. (Sometimes 3 1/2)
Windows XP, Vista, and 7 64 bit (x64) Systems will except up to 16 gigs of ram. (Some Beyond that)
If you are Unsure which System you are running,
1. Click on the Start Menu
2.Right Click on my Computer
3.Doube Left Click on Properties

On the Main Properties Page it should display
1. Which operating System you are running and Which bit it is (eiter 32 or 64)
2. How Much Memory (RAM) you are currently Running
3 and What Proccessor is Installed in your computer

Just a tip


If yours is a PC, Windows Vsita 64 bit should recognize 4 GB RAM. Have you tried the 64 bit bootable linux? Try with that. If you see less than 4GB, then you must check your BIOS for some setting which is the setting to share to the graphics memory or some limit.

IBM ThinkPad R40 Intel Centrino Upgrade to Intel Core 2 Duo?


According to system specs your system is not compatible with the Core 2 Duo or Centrino Core 2 Duo. To upgrade to those chips you would need to replace the motherboard with one capable of running those chips. If you decided to do that you would almost surely need new RAM as newer boards use newer technology. By the time you did this the upgrade would not be cost effective. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

More ram and vdeo card


it sounds as if your MoBo is seeing the video adapter as a source of ram. if that is the case, then installing memory in units of 1Gb will cause a stick to not be seen, therefore utilized. you may want to refer to you manual for memory limits and poosible comparibility issues. they are usually quite in depth. also, make sure that they are all the same make model and speed. these issues have wreaked havoc on the prettiest of pc's.
