Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook
I upgraded my memory with a second ddr pc2100 stick and bios still shows 512 of ram. If I take it out and swap ports the computer will not boot up. I assume this means I have a bad port. Whats the fix for this. I sure would like 1 gig of ram. How can I tell if it is the ram thats the problem?
You have 2 sticks of RAM correct? One that came with the system and one that you bought. You also have to slots but it appears one may not be working, however, nothing is impossible but that is very rare it is normally the RAM itself and not the slot. Take both pieces out, put the new ram in the first slot and boot up. If the system will not boot up then it is the RAM because you already know that that slot is good. However, you cannot do the same thing with the second slot, because your motherboard looks for RAM in the first slot and if there is none then it stops boot. Conclusion: Put new RAM in first, slot if it works then second slot is bad, if it does not work, then RAM is bad...
