Raid none define

I have this PC for about 2 years, recently I installed an extra 512MB RAM on the second slot to a total of 1GB but when I start up, I have this problem of no Raid, hence unable to use my SATA hard disk to boot up anymore, when using restart button, the PC went into safe mode. How can I resolve this problem? Thanks.

Try getting into your BIOS (usually F2 key at first screen, could also be F10 or Del) and check if your hard drive is in RAID or IDE mode. SATA drives can be run in either. Although it is somewhat odd that a simple mem upgrade could case a raid problem.

IBM T23 wont turn on after adding new RAM


Hi - according to memory suppliers your T23 has the following memory capacity / requirements:

  • IBM ThinkPad T23 maximum RAM capacity: 1GB
  • Your IBM has Two (2) memory slots or sockets
  • Module upgrade PIN count is: 144-PIN
  • The memory speed is: SDRAM 133MHz, PC133
  • The laptop DIMM type for the ThinkPad T23 is: SODIMM, SO-DIMM, Small Outline DIMM
  • Non ECC

If you are meeting these requirements, you may have a defective module.

Also, according to Lenovo's page on the machine:

Memory
The system has 128MB or 256MB of memory standard and can be configured for up to 1GB of addressable memory. Memory options up to 512MB SDRAM SO DIMMs each can be added in the two available slots for memory expansion. The standard 128MB of memory is expandable up to 640MB and the 256MB of memory is expandable up to 768 MB of addressable memory with 64, 128, 256, or 512MB SO DIMMs without removing the 128MB SO DIMM that is standard in one of the internal slots for memory. For customers that need the maximum 1GB to which memory can be expanded, it is necessary to replace the 128MB or 256MB card with a 512MB card plus add another 512MB card in the extra slot. Only 133MHz DIMM memory can be used in this system. The use of 100MHz DIMM memory is not supported in the T23 systems.

This means yo can trouble shoot the 512MB modules individually by installing one of the original 128MB modules and one of the new 512MB modules (for a total system memory of 640MB). If it does not boot, try again with the other 512MB module. This will help you identify a defective module that may be preventing the machine from booting.

I hope this helps & good luck!

How to install memory to my Acer Aspire 570 G Notebook PC


Most laptops have a panel on the bottom of the laptop that provides access to the RAM memory slot/s. Remove this panel to reveal the RAM slot, Insert a RAM module that is the same make and model as the original one.
If your laptop has a single 512Mb RAM module then add another 512Mb of RAM to increase the total RAM to 1Gb.

214-Dimm Config Warning


Just had same problem. Found a solution:
I have an old HP Compaq dc5000MT. It has 4 RAM slots
Here's what DIDN'T work:
1gb + 1gb + 512mb + 512mb
1gb + 512mb + 512mb + 1gb
512mb + 1gb + 1gb + 512mb
Here's what DID work:
1gb + 512mb + 1gb + 512mb
I'm sure that:
512mb + 1gb + 512mb + 1gb would probably work as well.
From my guess they're are 2 "channels" (slots 1&2 are channel 1, slots 3&4 are channel 2) and you have to keep the amount of RAM balanced on both slots and in the same order.
Another thing to note with the old XP OS. IT ONLY WORKS WITH 3GB or RAM. MAX. So 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 (4gb) WILL NOT WORK... PERIOD for XP. Vista, 7, 8 etc. allows you to use a ton more ram + readyboost. They need all the help they can get though since they are major resource hogs.

What is the max ram speed my pc can take


According to some research, your desktop has 4 RAM slots available. The total maximum RAM your desktop can hold is 2GB (2048MB). Furthermore, each slot can hold a maximum of 1GB (1024) but cannot exceed the 2GB total.
This means you can theoretically install 2 x 1GB RAM DIMMS in 2 RAM slots or 4 x 512MB RAM DIMMS. Both will meet the desktops 2GB limitation.
The RAM specifications for your desktop are as follows:
RAM Limit: 2GB (2048MB) RAM Slot Type: SO-DIMM RAM Type: DDR1 (not DDR2 or DDR3) RAM Speed: PC3200/DDR400 ECC Type: Non-ECC
TIP: The RAM is DDR which means that while you can install them as singles (single-channel mode), the system will see a speed benefit from installing them as matched pairs (dual-channel mode).

Beeping noise after installed memory on ecs motherboard L4S5MG


Some older computers, like mine, have a maximum memory they can handle. This one happens to be 1 gig, but yours may be less. Do you have an older computer? Yup, you do. As seen here, the maximum supported ram is 256. I'm sorry. Please rate.

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.

Computer will not work with extra 1gb ram


Hi,
It sound like you have incompatible memory. Try taking out the original 256 and test with the 1 gig. Keep in mind some PC requires memory to be paired. If you only have one, 1gig memory chip you might need to get another. I would try removing the 256 first. The specification of the motherboard would also tell you the memory usage.
Let me know if this helps!!

Upgrading ram


Hi reisrui, yes it is odd. (It's not the first time I have seen this.)
According to you're manual on page 6, under Specifications. The manual say's you can run up to a Max speed of PC3200 400MHz, 1GB in slot one. In slot 2 you can run a Max of 1GB of PC2700 333MHz in slot 2. Every motherboard I have come across that can run two different speeds of memory. The system will reduce the Max speed to the lower MHz memory speed. If you currently are using 512MB PC3200 400MHz in slot 1 & add 1GB of PC3200 400MHz into slot 2 for a total of 1.5GB of memory. The motherboard will ruduce the total memory over all speed to PC2700 333MHz. Motherboards alway run at the lower memory speed if two different speeds are presant.
I can’t be 100% sure of the 1GB of PC3200 400MHz into slot 2, will run at all! Or if it will be reduce down to 333MHz. I am sure you can run 2GB of PC2700 333MHz, 1GB of memory per slot in you're board for a total of 2GB.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.
