Hi,

if you only have 1 slot, on the underside of the laptop.
it,s most likely, if there are any more slots, they,ll be under the Keyboard.
This will possibly be, where the 512 mb is now, although some laptops do have on-board memory chips from 256-512mb. ( try under the Keyboard )

How can i use the 4GB ddr ram? still on 2GB while it has 4GB.. it said that only 2GB usable.


The 2nd 2Gb RAM module may be faulty or not compatible with the other RAM module.
Try inserting one RAM module in the notebook at a time to determine which RAM module is faulty.
If both RAM modules work then make sure both RAM modules are the same make and speed.

I have a lap top Dell Precision M20 and replaced the old ram from the slot below the keyboard with 512 MB by a new with 1GB. It worked fine! Since I bought two times 1GB, I inserted also the second in the...


these different ram slots have different bus speed so they really don't work if you are using them both at once.

Please check your laptop's documentation about the speeds of these ram slots.

Is it possible to install high desnsity memory RAM on a T42


The T42 can support up to 2 Gb of RAM.
The laptop comes with 512Mb of RAM under the keyboard and a spare memory slot on the bottom of the laptop.
To install 2Gb of RAM put 1Gb in the memory slot under the kerboard - need to remove the old RAM and put the other 1Gb in the memory on the bottom of the laptop

T42 Memory specs.
  • 64-bit Double Data Rate (DDR) non-parity SDRAM memory
  • PC2700 at 333MHz
  • Two 200 pin SO-DIMM memory slots, one slot is pre-populated with 256MB or 512MB, leaving one socket available
  • Supports up to two 1GB SDRAM SO DIMMs
  • Supports maximum memory up to 2GB

I want to change the 2 x 512DDR ram by 2x 2GB DDR ram memories in my A205-S4577/Toshiba. Will it work?


hi,
it will work as your notebook is supporting maximum 4 gb RAM but please check that you are using 32 bit operating system or 64 bit one.
If it is 32 bit then the system will be showing 3.2 gb RAM only as this is the 32 bit os limitation.

Just tried running restore and now have blue screen


Compaq are a bit fussy with RAM and usually don't like mixed RAM - brand, speed, & sometimes size.
You model may not support more than 2GB, check the specs..
Try inserting a single 2Gb RAM to see if it works.
If it dosen't work and the laptop won't support more than 2Gb, you may need to install two 1Gb RAM modules.

Adding an additional memory module to laptop...wont start!!!


The problem is that your laptop only supports 2 GB of RAM. If there is not a newer bios allowing more then 2 GB is the max you can go. Since you put the 2 GB in one slot then the other slot will be useless. It wouldn't matter how much you put in the 2nd slot because the bios already says you have 2 GB on board and will not accept anymore. Sorry.

Here is the problem, the laptop take 2GB RAM. 1GB in each slot, so get 2X1GB RAM. They are cheap now. You need 2, 1GB sticks of ram. For cheap prices go to Newegg.com

IBM ThinkPad T40 2GB Max RAM


The T40 has two ram slots, you can put a 1g chip in each totaling 2g. If the chip will remove, then it is changeable. Vista needs a minimum of 256 to run, so, when you change BOTH chips to equal 2g it will probably read 1.744g, or it may read the full 2g. If it only reads 1g, then the second slot under keyboard may have malfunctioned. It could also be that the 256 chip is bad and your really only running 512 now. With all that said, in order to achieve 2g, you will need to put a 1g chip in each slot.
