    dukyana was spot on, the the bottom cover is the one with the black "hot base" warning label

    What type of Laptop do you have?

    Adding memory means remove the back of the laptop
    insert the mem to the slots. Thats all.


  • dukyana May 11, 2010

    Usually the memory cards slot into the motherboard.



    What model is your machine and is it a laptop or PC?

Hi The memory on the laptop is housed on the base.

You unscrew the correct cover, then a gentle click should remove the old memory card and you can insert your own ones.

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!

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.

I installed two 512 MB DDR1 333MHz PC2700 memory modules in my Gateway 4026GZ laptop. They all cause the laptop to freeze up with the screen not working. Tried different memory modules (same 512MB)


Hi

Thank you for your query

According to the spec of the laptop that should be ok, it may the memory modules are bad

Please try the following

1) Try putting just the one module in, in turn, if it starts to freeze with the one or the other you will know which one is faulty


If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank you again

Adding computer memory


The only thing you could do is put in a 256MB module in the slot that you have access to. Only one socket is user upgradable. The second socket is only upgradable by a Dell service center. They would have to install a second 256 module to get you to the 512MB max.

Does the acer aspire 5315 2077 require a certain type of memory?


Go to www.crucial.com and click on the scan my system button to see what configuration of Memory Modules are installed on your laptop.

Here are some other details:

Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.
Chipset: Intel 960GML
Drive Form Factor: 2.5"
Drive Interface: SATA
Maximum Memory: 2048MB
Slots: 2 (2 banks of 1)
Standard Memory: 512MB removable
USB Support: 2.x Compliant

Q: What memory goes into my computer, and will a faster speed be backward-compatible?
A: DDR2 memory with support for DDR2 PC2-5300 speeds.

Q: How much memory can my computer handle?
A: 2048MB.

Adding the maximum amount of memory will improve performance and help extend the useful life of your system as you run increasingly demanding software applications in the future.

Q: Do I have to install matching pairs?
A: No.

No, you can install modules one at a time, and you can mix different densities of modules in your computer. But if your computer supports dual-channel memory configurations, you should install in identical pairs (preferably in kits) for optimal performance.

Q: Does my computer support dual-channel memory?
A: Yes.

Added more ram but it's not working Compaq E500


what did you mean not working ?? didnt see the new Ram memory ?/ or didnt boot at all ....anyway ...when adding new ram memory ..first thing you do is to remove the Bios battery for to let bios on defaults and let it be able to read the new added unit ....second ...be sure the new added ram is compatible and in the same frequency ,then remove the battery like I said and in the last ...reinstall the operating system ....always look at the boot to see if the ram memory that is displayed is the same value with the one you know that actually is installed on the slots...it should work if this was just an option to make it faster ...and not a wild guess cause it use to have issues and didnt boot before...

Need instructions on how to upgrade to 2GB...


Hello

No , you dont have to backup anything or reinstall anything when you perform a memory upgrade.

Look at the bottom of your laptop , there should be several covers. Consult the laptop manual which ones the memory cover (or just guess they are generally credit card sized/shape). When you have removed the memory cover , there should be a release lever either side of the existing memory module , which you can release and the stick just pops up gently for you to slide out. Then its just a matter of sliding the other one in and clicking the levers into place!

If you found this solution helpful , please rate my solution below

Sharp Actius AV18 does not recognize added 512MB PC2700 RAM. The machine still only sees 256MB. Is there something else I need to do?


I assume the laptop had originally 256Mb RAM and you put 512Mb RAM in a the spare memory slot and you expected to see 768Mb of memory, is this correct? Try removing the 256Mb memory module and insert the 512Mb memory module and see if the laptop boots up with 512Mb of RAM. If it doesn't boot up then the RAM is either incompatible or faulty. Try using RAM modules from the same manufacturer.

Dell Inspiron E1505 Memory


Try a memory manufacturer website & plug in your computer:

PNY:
Capacity PNY Part Number Retail Part Number OEM Part Number 256MB Module 6432SDTYE N256X42OPT N/A 512MB Module 6464TDTYE MN0512SD2-533 N/A 512MB Module 6464TFTYE MN0512SD2-667 N/A 1GB Module 64A0TDTYE MN1024SD2-533 N/A 1GB Module 64A0TFTYE MN1024SD2-667 N/A

HD 'memory' is considered secondary or storage.
In <Control Panel>::<Add / Remove Programs>, it should give you some indication of the size of the programs, as will hovering the mouse over the folder in which the program is situated [not as reliable as it once was as many dlls are stored in windows folders].

Continual reboot with second memory module


Your memory isn't an exexact match. The 512MB you have in is probablyis Kingston, part # KT3311/512, PC2100/2700, 512MB DDR. You should get Kingston part # KT3311/1G, PC2100/PC2700, 1 GB DDR. You can use another manufacturer but everything must match exactly execpt the size of course. The speed, DDR, everything. Make sure you have the new chip seated correctly and in all the way first. Of course if it doesn't match the specs of your other chip it won't matter. Best thing to do if buying locally is take the first chip with you. If not buying locally, have it with you when you order to make sure it matches.
