Thx BJ I tried to increase ram to 1024mb on my IBM T-30 computer (23669U). According to specs it should take it. I have inserted 2 512 chips but the computer still only reads 512mb. Please advise.

It may require either or both of these, since I can't see the laptop, I'll give you both, first and easiest, is go into the bios, and look in the system settings, see if the memory/ram is set to auto it may be set to a specific amount or speed, f 10 your way out and save the settings, hopefully that will fix the problem, if not then unplug and remove the battary, open the base and remove the little cmos battery looks like a coin, wait 5 min and replace, that is where your settings are saved when the machine is unplugged. Restart after putting everything together, then you may have to go and enable your custom settings, but the memory should show the new stick you installed, If not it's possible you have a bad stick, it won't be the first time, good luck

You need to download the drivers for your Netgear.
The IBM drivers also need to be found,Depending on your model, it may have WiFi. From IBM spec sheet:
  • 10/100 Ethernet installed on the system board
  • Selected models will have Intel Wireless and modem Mini PCI combo cards
  • Selected models will have CISCO Mini PCI card

My ibm t30 will work with it 256mb ram all the time, but the 1gb ram only works some of the time.


It seems 1 gb ram you have tried to install is not compatiable with this ibm t30. I will advice you to check the type and frequeny of 1gb ram you bought it will be written like DDR 400MHZ OR pc2 533/667 MHZ please check these two things and it should be matching with the original 256 ram which was working.

Put the original memory back in and see if the laptop starts up. If it does, you may have chosen modules that were not designed for the laptop.

IBM T30 - no screen - sortof booting


i own a t-30 myself with all the same problems i am reading about not reading ram beeping on startup no screen display but you could here hard drive running before these symptoms started the first symptom i ever noticed was if i picked the unit up with my left hand on the left front corner to move it it would boot down and then would not re boot properly (no screen, beeping) until i would smack the case then it would boot fine note: ram slots are located in the left front corner. I always assumed i had a cold or broken solder joint on the main board the last week the thing started running flakey i noticed i was only reading one of my 256mb ram chips so i powered down switched the two chips to the other ram slots and rebooted i noticed one chip was really warm the other cold the comp. booted up perfect and ran perfect for 2 hrs. same prob. so i bought two new 512mb chips installed the and have had none of the above listed problems ever since

Lenovo memory problem


crucial wasn't the problem.
the problem was solved by me doing a bios update.
they shipped the unit with the pci configured for 1 gig.
not 1.5,2,3 or 4.
I had to go for broke and pray that the 63af08 update had something in it,they said nothing about a memory upgrade period!
Here are 2 links for the solution. WHEW!
c.gif Lenovo Support & downloads - BIOS Update Utility - 3000 C200, N100
Specify AdRomLdr.exe with the full path name where you extracted this package and click OK. Example: C:\DRIVERS\WIN\FLASH\63af08US\AdRomLdr.exe Follow the instructions on the screen. After the update has been completed, the computer will restart
