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!

Ibm t23 thinkpad no display already check ram still no display


Does it throw a beep code after you turn it on? Try plugging a monitor into the VGA port on the back and see if it displays there on boot. In my experience no video usually indicated a memory problem but it could possible be a video card or lcd inverter.

My ibm thinkpad r32 has 1.2gbs of ram and only 16mb video mem, theres no option in the bios to share ram with video sooo my question is care i share ram memory to video memory at all?


You can not set it to share the memory. Once the video memory is used it will default to try using some of the ram. The 16MB video memory is built into the board on this laptop.

I cannot run MS Flight Simulator on my IBM Thinkpad R40, probably because the video memory is 16MB and the program needs 32MB video ram. Some thinkpads came out with 32mb video ram though, and now I'm...


You should be able to buy buying a Video graphics card for your specific computer. You should always check with your manufacturer to make sure that the part is compatible with the rest of the computer. You may even be able to find the part on the manufacturers website. If you do not know much about computers, especially laptops then you should always have a professional assist you that way you dont cause any other problems.

Hope this helps! FIXYA! Please leave a rating!
