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!

Lenovo/IBM ThinkPad T23 2648-DVD ROM not working. Bought on eBay. Either no driver or no software? DVD ROM . Can it be fixed, &/or can I raise a dispute with eBay/PayPal? Lenovo does not have support...


Try ejecting it and putting it into the other multibay to see if it works. What sort of symptoms is it exhibiting? It is probably dead as this is an old system and parts wear out over time, especially dvd-rom drives. These are pretty cheap and can be replaced easily. Make sure you save the dvd rom frame and ide connector from the drive as you will need this to apply to another drive.

I would return the drive if you bought it on ebay for a functioning one. Most reputable sellers will test items before shipment and refuse shipment if it fails testing. Other fail safes are having a period of time to test the item and return it if defective.

Want to upgrade


If you like the T23 then you can upgrade the size of you hard drive, your ram, your Rom drive. I went with the T30 and I like it quite well. I like the mouse better. The Thinkpads are nice to work on.

IBM Thinkpad T23 Won't Start


do you have a hard drive install??
laptop need a hard drive to start up. the one time start up you see before is just a accident.
as far as battery not charge, that is the porblem you run into, when you get laptop from ebay (taking chance).
you also need to download all of the drivers from IBM for the laptop.

My IBM Think Pad T30 showin working on AC with out powering..


If it's not finding the operating system, and you'va ran the recovery cd, then the problem is going to be that the hard drive has failed and will need replaced. In order to double check and make sure it's the hard drive, run the recovery or operating system disc, and reformat the hard drive. If the hard drive will not format, then it's bad.
