I have an ibm a20m 700 speed. installed 2 256 ram does not work

Everyone tells me the laptop can handle this much ram. If you use the 2 128 ram cards the machine fires up. It takes forever. Thats why i need more ram. If i put the two 256 ram cards in the lapyop fires up then goes to sleep. How can i fix this?

    On the ibm a20m the person at bestbuy looked up the system and said i needed 2 256mb pc-133. Are these the correct ones. If they are they do not work.

    make sure the RAM is PC100 SODIMM.

    nothing else will work.

IBM a20m ram issues


If they are compatible but your machine isn't happy with them, it sounds like they're faulty. Return both sticks to the retailer and ask them to replace both, just in case they replace the good one and give you the faulty one back.
