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!

Types of sdram


PC66 SDRAM
PC66 SDRAM is the original module speed of SDRAM. PC66 SDRAM was the earliest version of SDRAM and therefore came in a number of smaller megabyte sizes than later versions. Most early motherboards were rated for PC66 SDRAM. The available sizes are 32MB (megabytes), 64MB and 128MB.
PC100 SDRAM


PC100 SDRAM was released after PC66 SDRAM and runs at a higher speed. It has the same number of pins as the earlier memory module and is capable of utilizing the same RAM slot. The only difference when installing this SDRAM in compatible computers with older systems (PC66 slots) is that the SDRAM will run at a slower speed. PC100 RAM comes in sizes such as 32MB, 64MB, 128MB, 256MB and 512MB.
PC133 SDRAM

The last generation of SDRAM is PC133. The PC133 memory provided a speed upgrade and comes in larger sizes than previous generations of SDRAM. PC133 modules are backward compatible with older SDRAM slots. The PC133 memory, however, will be forced to run at the slot's slower bus speed (PC66 or PC100). The memory comes in sizes like 128MB, 256MB, 512MB and 1024MB.

Having trouble located ram for my comptur


It's SDR Sdram that operates at a frequency rate of 133Megahertz.
(133MHz)
Commonly known as PC133.

(SDR stands for Single Data Rate
SDR Sdram is commonly just referred to as Sdram.
A slight misnomer.

ALL Ram Memory from SDR Sdram to DDR3 Sdram, IS Sdram.
Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory

DDR Sdram?
Double Data Rate Sdram
DDR2 Sdram?
Double Data Rate 2 Sdram
DDR3 Sdram?
Double Data Rate 3 Sdram)

Should be low density, unbuffered, Non-ECC, and have a CAS Latency of 3. (CL3)
Ram Timings of 3-2-2-2, and a DRAM configuration of 16Meg X 64 for a 128MB ram memory module
Voltage is 3.3 Volts

From sources, it's indicated that the Total maximum amount is 256MB, but sources could be mistaken.
Two ram memory slots, that for EACH slot the maximum amount is 128MB.
(I'm thinking the total maximum amount should be at least 512MB's)

You might try these guy's,

http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=300%20Series%20%28SDRAM%29

If possible I would call them to confer first, and have the model number from the back of the computer handy.

I went and bought new ram for my computer. it's an IBM desktop. type 6792. a pc133 512MB sdram. my computer will not pick it up. how do i get the computer to pick up the ram? it is the right kind of ram?


I checked at http://www.buffalotech.com/products/memory/select/select-dimm/ and according the the memory configurator there your IBM Netvista 6792 takes this type of memory which can be ordered from them PC-133mhz SDRAM DIMM 168 pin, it indicated that your pc has 3 slots for memory and the maximum size you can put in each slot is 512 MB which would give you the maximum memory of 1536 MB. I have had problems in the past when replacing memory in IBM PC's some modules won't work because IBM uses different memory than other Manufacturers. But give Buffalo a try, their memory is guaranteed.
