What memory do I need?


Your machine has 4 DIMM slots. They use PC3200 (DDR400) DIMMS (184-pin). The machine comes pre-installed with 2, 256MB DIMMS providing 512MB of RAM. The largest DIMMs available in the DDR PC3200 are 1GB. If you keep what you have, you can add an additional 2GB of RAM, for a total of 2.5GB. If you are running WINXP 32-bit, this should be more than acceptable. You can replace all four DIMMS and get 4GB of RAM, but a 32-bit OS can only access a little of 3GB of RAM. If you want to come close to maxing out under a 32-bit OS, remove one of the installed DIMMS and add 3 1GB DIMMS. These are old memory and may be hard to find and actually cost more than newer memory.

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!

Hello im trying to upgade the PCs memory. I inserted "DDR400 1GB CL3" to the memory slot ,with no other memorys prsent. the computer does not start. only peeps a few times. I checked the...


Remove the "new" stick of RAM, and re-insert your "old" stick of RAM, and start it.
If it still beeps, how many times does it beep, and is it a "short-long-short" type of pattern?
The number of beeps is important.

Does the manual for the motherboard indicate that it supports a maximum of 256MB per stick?
512MB per stick? 1024MB per stick? What's the size of the "old" stick of RAM?

Check that the video-card is properly "seated" into its slot, because an improperly-seated card (knocked loose when you changed the RAM) could cause the beeping.

Will P4M80-M4 motherboard support dual channel memory?


This is an older board. The VIA chipset pre-dates dual channel memory support. If your board is working fine, this should not be a concern.

Sd ram 256MB -does not read more than 128 MB per slot


I checked the specs of this motherboard at the following link:
http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=1&prod_no=340

The specs says the following:
• Supports four 168-pin unbuffered DIMM using eight memory banks.
• Supports a maximum memory size of 348MB (8Mx8) or 768MB (16Mx4) registered DIMM
only
• Support ECC (1-bit Error Code Correct) function
• Supports 3.3v PC100 SDRAM DIMM.

According to this, the only memory DIMMs guaranteed to work on your motherboard are the 3.3v PC100 SDRAM DIMMs.

However, it seems that your problem lies within the density of the memory module. It looks like the motherboard was made when 256MB sticks weren't very common yet, so there could just be some compatibility issues.
I believe that the motherboard only supports 128MB per side. The RAM you bought probably has memory chips only on one side. Check your new stick. If it only has memory chips on the one side (small black squares) then the only thing you can do is take it back and look for a double-sided stick of 256MB. Even then, it may or may not work with your motherboard.
