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.

Adding memory, new total not recognized: IBM Thinkpad R51e-1844


Ram should always be paired. Same type, speed and size in each slot. You may have 1 SIMM/DIMM/DDR that has 2 sides of chips and the other with 1 which will do exactly what you state. RAM reads across the chips simultaneously. So if you have a different one in each slot it can go bonkers and do goofy stuff on you.

Want to know how to upgrade my lap top memory thank you


To upgrade you will need a SoDimm 2gb DDR II SDRAM, 667 MHz module, on the bottom of the notebook you will need to remove the panel usually secured by 4 screws to gain access to the memory slots, you probably have a 1 and 2 gb modules already so it'll mean removing the 1gb chip and discarding it as you only have 2 memory slots so you can fit the new 2gb module.

Laptop Turning On But Nothing Happens - Replaced Memory


This does sound like a memory problem, and it more likely that a memory chip is bad versus the memory slot. The slots will be numbered 1&2, the memory will generally work in either, but the 1 slot is preferred. Try starting with just one chip in, try both slots, then try the other chip. It may just be one chip that is bad. If it is the slot, it shouldn't hurt the chip, but the motherboard will need replaced in order to fix it.

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.

Memory on mx-3215


No, the maximum you can get for this laptop is a 1GB chip. When buying it, make sure its DDR2 SODIMM PC4300. The ram below the yellow box is what's compatible (its about $25 for a 1gb chip anywhere you look)

HOW TO INSTALL ANOTHER MEMORY STICK


Most newer laptops have easy access to their memory slots, I'd recommend you got to the manufacturer's website and look for the maximum memory your system will allow. If you look at the bottom side of your laptop, you may see several small covers with just one or two screws in them. One of them will be where the memory slots are. It is not uncommon for the laptop to have a very small 'memory chip' icon on the cover. Be aware that many laptops only support two memory chips, and may have both filled already. For example, if laptop has 512MB memory, it may have two x 256MB chips in it. Which would mean, that to upgrade to 1GB memory, you would have to purchase two x 512MB chips. or one 1GB chip.
