Question about Akai Mpc1000 128mb Ram Expansion System

Open Question

MPC 1000 Memory Slot Holders Broke Off

I recently purchased ram for my MPC 1000. The ram is a IBM 256MB 133MHz (32Mx64) PC133 SoDimm SDRAM Laptop notebook 144 Pin SD RAM. Once I installed it, I turned on my MPC. I now have 128MB installed (which is cool). After I finished using the MPC I turned it off. I turned it on the next day and I received a memory bootscan I received another message abruptly that says "problem was found in memory, system will now halt". I went back and checked my memory which didn't look loose or out of place. I kept getting this message. Once I took the memory back out the side pieces of the memory holder in the slot broke off. What kind of repair would be needed to get this problem fixed and should I also get a different ram other than IBM?

well a hard drive is a logical drive in which windows and all the things you download are stored until the user deletes them, and the pc133 memory is a temporary storage in where when you open something on your desktop in windows it is then stored into your pc-133 memory so you can view it, the more of this you have the faster it will open items on the hard drive, they both pretty much accentuate each other, the more ram you have the faster your hard disk access will be

SOURCE: mpc1000 and 128mb ram

is it a genuine 128 akai card or another brand? If it's non-genuine you might have the wrong chip layout. look for a 256mb PL3 P133 144pin sodimm(4x64). Picked mine up at a computer recycler for US$20 and it works a treat. Hope it helps!

SOURCE: When i Install Ram into my MPC1000 the screen is blank..

Check if the ram you bought is compatible with that of the existing
in your Akai Mpc. The ram strip comes with a clock speed number stamp into it. It must be the same, otherwise it will not function. Or
it must be defective. On my own practice, I bring my PC to the com-
puter store, and let them activate the additional ram. In that manner
I will be assured of the compatibility and integrity of the ram added.
Do this, I'm sure you will be satisfied with the result. E-mail for result.

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 buy addtional memory 256MB, now 256MB. may need more memory for Windows XP Home grade-up from Win 98.


You need 100 MHz SDRAM SoDIMM 144 pin ram to match this laptop. You can put in a maximum of 512 MB (take out the current memory and put in 2 256 MB sticks). One source for this memory is http://www.pcmemorystore.com/Ashton_Digital-MaxiMate-420-ram.htm .

I hope this helps.

This laptop came with 128mb ram, you can safely install 2 sticks of 256mb for a maximum of 512mb with no bios update.
You need pc100 sodimms.
Amazon or ebay will be the best bet as this memory is expensive now from a retailer.
I found 256mb sticks for under $10 buy it now on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/256MB-SODIMM-PC100-SDRAM-256-MB-PC-100-LAPTOP-144-Pin-/190411543153?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c55699271

Laptop doesn't recognize new ram


I would guess that you need PC 133. Some manufactures that were using SDram at the time required PC133 while others would require but allow you to use PC100.

This is the requirement for your laptop from www.crucial.com

Each memory slot can hold SDRAM, PC133 with a maximum of 256MB per slot.*

Hope this helps
