Question about IBM ThinkPad T22 2647 Notebook
On one of your posts (see above) a contributer #2 (TheAsterisk) claims - 'As a note, as long as both RAM modules are PC133, you can use that,
too, but you're still limited to 2x256MB. PC133 seems to be more
readily available for purchase and a good deal cheaper than PC100, so
it's good to know.'
Is solution #2 correct?
I have just upgraded my IBM Thinkpad with 2x256Mb PC133 of RAM and it will not boot.
Running Win XP Home.
Hold on a second.. I have fixed a number of T21's and I recall that these units are super anal about the type of RAM they use. I am pretty sure that they require PC100 and will not accept PC133.
One second.... Ok, I just opened up my T21 and it has FRU 20l0255 which is PC 100. Here is a link to the specs. I have tried using PC133 and the same think happens - just does not boot. Nothing.

Oh, God, I screwed up royally. A whole lot of memory providers online make this claim, and as I'd had good experiences with them before, I very foolishly parroted their statements without testing it first myself. I really hope you can return the PC133, and I hope I can return mine. I'm so sorry. Yes, PC133 seems to mess with the T22, now that I've tried it on mine. Everyone else coming here for help, ignore my earlier comment; it was ignorant, and it's likely to end up a waste of money. Unless IBM says otherwise, use only PC100. Again, I'm sorry if my malformed statement caused any headaches aside from my own.
