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.

I REALY DEPENDS HOW MUCH THE VENDER SET THE SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE WILL SUPPORT

MY NEW LABTOP HP DV9000 CAME WITH 2GIG
AND THEY SAID 3GIG OKAY BUT WE RECOMMAND 4GIG RAM BECAUSE YOUR VIDEO RAM SHARE THE RAM UP TO 799 MB
RAM, SO SHARE VIDEO RAM AND MEMORY RAM, WHEN ALL IN DONE AND THE COMPUTER DOES ALL IT CALCULATION IT SAYS I HAVE 2-3GIG RAM AVAILABLE TO RUN OTHER SOFTWARE

ALSO WHEN YOU GO TO PRICE IT 1-2GIG CHIP MAY COST 50-100.00 DOLLARS

AND A SET OF 2-2= 2 PEACE OF RAM EACH ONE HAS 2GIG OF RAM

A SET MAY COST 40-140.00 DOLLARS

YOU NEED TO KNOW IF YOU NEED DUAL CHANNEL

That is the BIOS password it is looking for. You can remove the battery from the motherboard for about 20 minutes. This will reset the BIOS, you may not be able to remove the battery if it is soldered in place. Did this just start doing this?

Ibm thinkpad power supply problem ???


it actually sounds like something may be shorting out the system, remove the cd-rom and try it then, ive had an a20m do the same thing and it turned out to be the ram, so always check for the simplest, remove each 1 at a time and try to power it on again
