Lenovo memory problem

I have a lenovo 3000 c200 a4u laptop running vista business and i'm having memory install problems.
the unit came with twin 512's , i bought twin 1 gig's from crucial.
the unit won't fire up with 2 gig's of ram but if i install either of the 1 gig's with an origional 512 the unit fires up ok.
the unit came with pc2-5300 ddr2-667mhz so-dimm and that's what crucial sent in the 1 gig's.
the laptop say's it can handle 2 gig's.
ibm's website say's it can handle 4 gig's
ibm's rep say's it can handle 2 gig's of 5300 speed.
ibm's rep say's it can handle 4 gig's of 4200-4300? speed.
ibm rep act's like i'm totally illiterate, i should be able to just put the twin 1 gig's in and be happy.
Well that isn't working,
I hope someone can help me here.

Crucial wasn't the problem.
the problem was solved by me doing a bios update.
they shipped the unit with the pci configured for 1 gig.
not 1.5,2,3 or 4.
I had to go for broke and pray that the 63af08 update had something in it,they said nothing about a memory upgrade period!
Here are 2 links for the solution. WHEW!

Call Crucial. I've seen some problems with their memory in large installations.

I have no communication driver install in my lenovo 3000 h series


Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model laptop,
Use this link :-
http://www.ibm.com/products/finder/us/finders?pg=ddfinder&cm_re=other-_-suprcn-_-download

After you download the driver file, click on this file and it will unzip/expand the drivers and copies these files to the hard drive in c:drivers... take a note of the folder it has created to store the driver files and then go to this folder and run the SETUP file to install the driver.
