Thanks and good luck!

    to get into bios you need to press either f2 or del button in the startup, but there isn't much you can do in bios about this issue.

    I mean memory* card.

  • Priya darshan May 04, 2008

    OK try this out..Once you restart your PC keep hitting F2 repeatedly.You will get the BIOS screen.If not try out the same with F8 or F12.You can also try hitting the DEL key repeatedly.

  • Priya darshan May 04, 2008

    Another thing..Check if both th\e RAM cards are properly inserted in the slot.Remove and fix it again.Make sure it is tight and the two clips have locked the card when you have inserted them.

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!

What's the maximun of ram memory that compaq presario 6025ea can admit?


This is an older model computer, and therefore it can't utilize the large amount of RAM that more current models can.

The Presario 6025EA has two DIMM slots and comes with 256MB of RAM installed. The maximum amount of RAM that can be installed is 1GB. To upgrade to this, you will need two 512MB DDR-266 (PC2100) RAM modules.

If you found this solution helpful, please leave a positive rating!

Adding computer memory


The only thing you could do is put in a 256MB module in the slot that you have access to. Only one socket is user upgradable. The second socket is only upgradable by a Dell service center. They would have to install a second 256 module to get you to the 512MB max.

Thinkpad T20 won't accept memory upgrade


according to ibm
you are allowed only pc100 memory with a maximum of 512mb.
when handling memory make sure you are grounded before touching any memory chips.
try getting another set of 256mb chips and grounding yourself before installing them.

Presario won't recognize second 256 RAM


Remove the original module, install just the new one and then start your computer. If it doesn't start, the memory you bought is bad. The system boards used in the Compaqs will auto-detect memory, and there are no jumpers or BIOS settings needed.

Want to replace 2x 256mb of memory with 2x 512mb of memory into my hp compaq presario v4000


Hi there.
Yes you can upgrade the memory to 2 x 512MB DDR SDRAM memory.
You will be pleased to know that the system supports up to 2GB DDR SDRAM memory (2 x 1GB)
Please be gentle when installing the new memory taking care to remove the battery and the mains power from the laptop first before installing.

Have fun and thanks for using FixYa!!

Memory upgrade


The M45-S169 only has one available memory slot.
(I'm confused about your post that states "M45-S265" in the head line).

  • Configured with 512MB DDR SDRAM (both memory slots may be occupied)
  • 512MB(min)/2048MB (max), 256MB on-board memory with 1 available memory slot for 256MB, 512MB, or 1024MB PC2700 DDR 333MHz SDRAM 2.5V SODIMM memory modules
You can find the complete specifications here.

Problem with amount of RAM.


maybe your video card uses 128mb shared memory so 128 for video plus 640 reading equals 768.
