96MB is the max...it is 32MB is soldered so you should be looking for a 64MB stick for the open slot.

Thats a dinosaur of a laptop - he should consider donating it to a local museum.

From reviewing the manufacturers manual for that unit, I would have to agree that the maximum possible expansion memory you can install is 96mb. Here is the link to their users guide (pdf).

ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/38xhmm.pdf

quote:

"Memory (Option) 2635-8xx/9xx/Axx/Bxx
Ÿ 8MB and 16MB 70ns EDO DIMM
card
Ÿ 16MB, 32MB, and 64MB EDO
DIMM card (max. 96MB)"

There you have it. Although unless you are able to find that specification of memory for cheap online, I would say it's not really worth it to invest in older ram with such slow bus speeds unless you definitely need it. Hope that helps.

Can you install windows xp on a ibm 380ed laptop


Hi there,
You need to make sure your laptop meet the minimum hardware requirements for windows XP . (see below)
I believe your system has a Pentium MMX 166 MHZ processor which will not be able to run XP properly.
But that's not all, You also need to make sure IBM Lenovo provides drivers for all the hardware on your 380ED, which I don't believe it does.

Minimum hardware requirements

  • Pentium 233-megahertz (MHz) processor or faster (300 MHz is recommended)
  • At least 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM (128 MB is recommended)
  • At least 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available space on the hard disk
  • CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive
  • Keyboard and a Microsoft Mouse or some other compatible pointing device
  • Video adapter and monitor with Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher resolution
  • Sound card
  • Speakers or headphones

IBM ThinkPad R40 Intel Centrino Upgrade to Intel Core 2 Duo?


According to system specs your system is not compatible with the Core 2 Duo or Centrino Core 2 Duo. To upgrade to those chips you would need to replace the motherboard with one capable of running those chips. If you decided to do that you would almost surely need new RAM as newer boards use newer technology. By the time you did this the upgrade would not be cost effective. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
