Hi Linda,

In order to answer your question, I would need to know the exact manufacture and model of your computer.

Every computer is made with similar parts, but made by different manufacturers and at different points of technological availability. This means that variables such as the company that made the motherboard for your computer, the type of processor you have, and the year it was made, can all can limit the types of memory your unit is designed to use.

Almost all computer vendors register their model's specifications which are indexed by various sites that can be used to quickly identify replacement or upgrade parts for your machine.

I recommend www.crucial.com or www.goldenram.com to use to search for the correct RAM for your system.

If you would like to post us what other information you can (such as model type or make) we would be happy to help more.

Is it possible to install windows vista in this computer?


No, it needs at least 1GB of RAM and a much better video card.

I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed on my IBM R40 laptop computer. Although I installed two 512 MB PC2100 266 Mhz memory to both slots. However the computer only sees 512 MB. When I installed Ubuntu I perhaps...


Well, what a mine field!
I found this;
There are at least 9 different R40 Thinkpad models. Look for a label underneath & see if there's a "Type" number...something like 2681, 2682, etc. Once you find the number, go to the following site & select your model/type from the dropdown menu:
http://www.crucial.com/store/listmodel.asp?cat=RAM&mfr=IBM&productline=ThinkPad&submit=Go

And being a 256Mb standard, that may be all it can handle. The above link is rather old but worth a try.
Hope this helps.

Hello i bought some pc2100 ddr ram 512 mb for my dell 2350 but when put the ram in it beeps and wont boot up it came with 256mb ddr sdram can anyone tell me if this is the right ram and if so why wont it...


The best thing to do when it comes to computer ram, and replacing it, is to take the stock (the working ram that came with the PC) ram out and take it with you to a local computer store to ensure that you're getting the right kind of ram.

Your PC can be VERY picky when it comes to computer memory, so don't guess what's right for it.


Hope this helps. :)

Yes that's correct simply turn off the power OFF from the computer and to make sure unplug it from the power outlet, then remove the existing 512 RAM and put the new RAM and then turn the power back ON and that's it.....

Memory upgrade


The memory should be DDR II Ram. To find how much ram you have simply click on Start then right click on "My Computer" and click properties. Chances are you have 512 ram. It will tell you in the lower right hand side along with your processer and windows version. Once you have found out how much ram you have, turn off your computer flip it upside down and pull out the battery. Then you should see a cover with one or two screws in it that measures about 3 inch by 4 inch. Remove the screws and take the cover off. This is where your memory goes. If there is 512 memory in your computer you will either have 1 512 memory stick or 2 256 sitcks. Remember that any time you upgrade memory it is best to take out the old memory and replace with either one stick of higher ram or two of equal ram. Never mis a 512 and a 256 or 512 and 1gig ect. Take the ram stick/sticks out and bring them down to the store with you just so as to get the correct memory. Also, remember when you replace the memory, if you are just upgrading to one 1gig stick to put it in the A DIMM slot. This is the primary ram slot.
