    Tks, butI have the PC133 512MB (PA3108U-1M51) model. It doesn't work. My BIOS is 1.4 version and I think in upgrading it to the latest one 1.6, Maybe this way the RAM will work. I have to mention that I also have problems in restarting the laptop, it doesn;t work with this version of BIOS.

  • msuliuc Nov 14, 2008

    I am afraid I cannot do the BIOS upgrade from windows cause I use Linux-Ubuntu 8.10 (that's why I really need at least 512Mb RAM:)). But I can do it from a CD. It is risky but what can I do, installing windows? Never :)) Tks

  • msuliuc Nov 14, 2008

    I looked for and there is no bios upgrade for toshiba sp6000 on debian, or at least I couldn't find it :)). I am a little bit afraid to do the upgrade from the CD but I will try it :)). If somebody knows a link from a debian site that has the Toshiba SP6000 bios upgrade please let me know. Tks.

Hi

You need these modules:
PC133 512MB (PA3108U-1M51)
PC133 256MB (PA3086U-1M25)
PC133 128MB (PA3085U-1M12)

Furthermore you can upgrade the memory to max 1024 MB

hope this helps

    yes it would seem you are right, a bios flash would be the only option to hand. the safest way to flash the bios is to download the .exe file that you can run in windows, doing it from floppy is risky

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!

Hi, I would like to upgrade the original 512 MB memory. We have just found the second slot (just under the keyboard!!!) and now I have the following question: can I keep the old 512 MB RAM module and...


What type of RAM is your Pc using? SDR, DDR1 or DDR2? 1 GB single module of RAM maight be heavier for your notepad and the Laptop maight even fail to boot. Just use the 2 Modules of Ram (2 chips each 512MB) and check in BIOS if the RAM capacity has acually changed.

Toshiba sp6000 512mb sdr 133mhz chips


These are the memory modules for your notebook, any others won't work. The max is 1024mb

You need these modules:
PC133 512MB (PA3108U-1M51)
PC133 256MB (PA3086U-1M25)
PC133 128MB (PA3085U-1M12)

If the modules you've installed meet the above criteria then make sure they are seated correctly.

Bear in mind it is always possible one of the modules is defective so try them one at a time, also they are non-eec.

Hello, I have a Satellite A15 @129 w/756 MB RAM. I'd like to upgrade but don't know the maximum RAM stick each slot will take and don't remember if there are 2 slots or 4. Thanks, RD


The maximum RAM for this laptop can up to 1 GB DDR1 266MHz RAM and 2 memory slot available, so since u have already 756 MB RAM in your laptop, that mean 1 of your RAM stick is 512MB and another 1 is 256MB, so if u need to upgrade, u have to replace the 256MB with 512MB to make it 1GB maximum.

Compaq M700 Ram Upgrade the second


i can find no spec on this but,if your notebook can take upt 576MB of memory, i would expect 2 x 256MB to be the max, as installing 1 x 512MB would be doubling the capacity allowed by one module slot.
