Hi,

First try Using one at a time, since its not advisable to use memory chips with variable bus speeds i.e (333 & 266).
Since IBM Computer are little complicated i would suggest your to call the customer care or Tech support for assistance in buying a Memory module. In that way you can cross check the memory module you have bought is compatible with the computer.

Kindly give a feed back to Improve my statistics and to see If it was helpful for you...

Thanks and Regards

I have an IBM Netvista A30p that I am trying to upgrade the memory in. It currently has 640mb and I am trying to go to 2GB. I have 2 1GB dimms to install but it will not boot with them. It will not boot...



are the modules of the same brand and type
make sure the sockets and ram modules are dust and corrosion free and are securely seated

you might swap each module over then reboot one might be faulty
RAM
  • Installed Size 256.0 MB / 2.0 GB (max)
  • Technology DDR SDRAM
    hope this helps

    Processor Upgrade For An IBM Netvista 8307-73G...


    If the physical size, and numper of pins is the same as your current processor, you can most definately upgrade. Hyper threading is enabled through the bios, but as far as I know it's not neccesary.
    Swapping out processors is fairly easy, and when you buy a new one, it should come with extensive instructions and pictures showing you exactly how to do it. Good luck!

    Drivers problem


    Are the drivers from IBM XP specific? If not try the drivers for Win. 2000. I have had success using them on XP machines when XP specific drivers can't be found.
