Question about IBM ThinkPad 600E 2645 Notebook
I bought last days an old 600e for my parents.The model is a 4Ax one (PII 366 Mhz,64 Ram).I wanted to update the RAM memory, so I got 128 x 2 SODIMM PC100 (in total 256).I know that the mainboard support only PC 66 but I found on some forums that some guys could use this kind of SODIMM module with PC100.
The problem is: my mainboard uses only 160 RAM (32 onboard and 128 RAM.)
I wanted to use all RAM memory (288 RAM or least 266),but the mainboard uses only 160.
The bios is last updated (http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=DSHY-46HLKQ).
When I open the Config from Bios menu,the mainboard recognizes 288 RAM but it uses only 160.
I know also that I can disable the 32 onboard memory if I open (with Ctrl+D) the CMOS editor and I change the byte values from 2B (from 80 to 81).In this case I got less memory: 128 RAM.
How can I make a change in this editor (some bytes values changes) to use all RAM memory (288 or 256 RAM)?
Please help me!
Thanks in advance,
IT DOEST MATTER YOUR VISTA OR XP SOFTWARE HAS TO BE ABLE TO SUPPORT THE AMOUNT OF RAM, ALSO DO YOU SHARE VEDIOMEMORY WITH THE RAM AS ONE , IF SO THAN JUST LET 1 GIG FOR VEDIO AND YOUR SYSTEM MAY ALLOW YOU TO GO TO 2-3BG, CALL THE VENDER ASK THEM THE MAXIMUIN AMOUNT OF RAM THAT THE SOFTWARE WILL SUPPORT THAN ADD THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF RAM YOUR VEDIO RAM ALLOW AND YOU WILL KNOW HOW MUCH RAM YOUR SYSTEM CAN HANDLE, 32BIT OR 64 BIT XP OR VISTA WILL RUN MIN 2-4GB, WANT TO BE SAFE THAN SPLIT IT 3GB
IT WILL COST YOU AT FRY .COM, WITH SHIPPING AND INSURANCE LIFE TIME WARRRENTY ON THE MEMORY ABOUT 50-70 DOLLARS.
BEEN THERE AND DONE IT
