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!

RAM error


Populating the memory according to the following guidelines resolves this POST error:
  • DIMMs must be configured in identical pairs.
  • The system will not boot properly if multiple DIMMs of varying density or type are installed in the system.
  • The Entry model servers come with a single 512 MB DIMM. If additional DIMMs are to be added to the existing 512MB DIMM, then another 512 MB DIMM has to be added along with the new pair of DIMMs, or it has to be removed when adding the next pair.
  • Valid DIMM pair combinations use slots 1/5 (Bank A), slots 2/6 (Bank B), slots 3/7 (Bank C), and slots 4/8 (Bank D).
  • Up to 16 GB of memory are supported on the Dual-Core 5000, and 5100 series
  • Up to 32 GB of memory are supported on the Dual-Core 5200 series, Quad-Core 5300, and 5400 series
  • FBDIMMs must be installed in pairs unless operating in single-FBDIMM mode. The server supports single-FBDIMM mode only in FBDIMM slot 1A. FBDIMMs must be installed in sequential order, beginning with bank A.

I am trying to install new RAM on my mother's Sony VAIO PCG-K25 laptop. It had two slots, each with 256MB sticks in them. I replaced these with 512MB sticks, and the computer wouldn't boot. It wouldn't...


make sure they are compatible with your computer, there are alot of electronic stores (circuit city) was the worst at it, but will sell you the wrong ones and say they are backwards compatible.. usually P4 2.8 can run PC2700, some run PC2100, which im hoping yours is PC2700... if so, make sure they are NON-ECC also... i would just get 2 1 gig PC2700 DDR 200pin sticks and stick em in... good luck

Can the memory be upgraded (increased) from the basic (factory installed) 512mb on the Sony PCV-W300G?


Hi there.
As far as i know you can upgrade the RAM to 2GB, 2x1GB 184pin PC2100 DDR DIMM Desktop RAM modules is what it can take.


Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Need to add RAM


Hello,

Located here is the actual specifications of your W3052.

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=W%20Series&model=W3052

The DDR means "double data rate", SDRAM is "synchronous dynamic random access memory" and DIMM is for "dual inline memory module". These are the way manufacturers describe the specific speed, type, and packaging of the memory. You need to get the correct combination for your computer in order for it to function properly. The PC2100 is NOT correct, at the very least it will slow your computer down, and possibly will not work at all. You should use PC2700.

If you wish to add another 512MB taking your computer to 1GB total, then you only need 1 module, a 512MB, like the one that came in the computer. Do not purchase a 1GB module expecting it to work properly with the one already there. It probably won't. If you want to max out your computer's memory taking it to 2GB, then you will need to purchase 2 each 1GB modules, and remove the existing 512MB module.

When you go to the computer store, you ask for either "one five-hundred-twelve megabyte, PC2700, DDR, SDRAM DIMM memory module" or "two one-gigabyte, PC2700, DDR, SDRAM DIMM memory modules".

The part numbers from, Kingston, one of the major add-on memory makers are shown here:

512MB = KVR333X64C25/512
1GB = KVR333X64C25/1G

Identifying what type of ram is compatible with this model.


Hi there,
sorry m8, your RAM type is PC-2100 DDR, and as the RAM in mention is PC2-5300 they do not fit here.

New Motherboard for Sony VAIO-RX550


I just bought the same box, mostly for the case, power supply, etc, to use as a small server.
Three ARE 2 ram slots, but this motherborad IS limited to 512mb total. And it uses SDRAMM PC133 or 100, not SO DIMM - incompatible. PC133 SDRAM 512 is $9 (btw, installing in pairs not required on DDR SDRAM) and even if your existing is 256 & an empty slot, buying another 256 may not work, sometimes brands are incompatible. Just get the 512.

However, replacing the motherboard is your ONE chance to change lots of things at once which may be the best choice at this point. Physical size ("form factor"), CPU socket, memory type & price, graphics connections (AGP, PCIe, or built in) are key factors.

1\ the case fits a "Mini ATX" mother board (mATX). The majority of accessories use PCI lots - sound, LAN, etc. and every mother board will have 3 or more PCI slots. Probably don't need modem anymore.
2\ what CPU does it support. The original P4 1.5GHz cpu is normally a primary expense, but today your P4 Socket 478 is worth $8 (pricewatch.com) brand new. This means buying a motherboard-cpu combo may make sense. While you're at it, get more & faster memory and you'll think it's a new PC for less the $100 unless you go all out.
3\ what type & how much memory it handles & how much you have. Existing PC133 SDRAM is old & slow, about 8x faster SDRAM ddr2-800 pc2-6400 2GB is only $24 and 2GB is about the minimum today. (btw, DDR2 - notice the 2 - IS installed as a pair.) DDR is far from current, but plenty fast and very cheap, just need to balance the memory-motherboard-cpu combo.
4\ if not playing games, the video card is old but ok. It connects via the largely discarded AGP slot. So in looking at a motherboard combo, either with an AGP slot or on-board video is desirable.
