I have a T30 IBM and i understand that it supposedly can take 2 gigs of ram. Is this true? And if so what must be done to get it to recognize the installed ram? Thanks

    Many people have submitted info that 2 gig memory can be setup on T30 IMB laptop. One company has indicated that its ram works that is not the case with my unit. I would like other experts thoughts on the subject. Thanks

these are 2 different locations with specs about this thinkpad..and in both locations is confirmed what I already knew ..that this is an elder model and only came equipped with a 256M Pc2100 ddr -sdram..and the maximum supported is 1G top ..of the same or a lower frequency ..
so ..Im not sure ..if it only has one slot ..will take a ddr pc 2100 1G ..if it has 2 slots..will take max of 2X 512 M of DDR pc2100

According to this official document from IBM/Lenovo, your laptop model supports up to 1 GB of RAM (2x512 MB SDRAM SO DIMMs):

Check the "Memory" section in the above document & you will see what I mean.

I just tried to install 1 gig of ram on my IBM T30 Laptop, easy right, well now I get nothing on my screen, so what went wrong if it was so easy. Please help. Thx BJ I tried to increase ram to 1024mb on...


It may require either or both of these, since I can't see the laptop, I'll give you both, first and easiest, is go into the bios, and look in the system settings, see if the memory/ram is set to auto it may be set to a specific amount or speed, f 10 your way out and save the settings, hopefully that will fix the problem, if not then unplug and remove the battary, open the base and remove the little cmos battery looks like a coin, wait 5 min and replace, that is where your settings are saved when the machine is unplugged. Restart after putting everything together, then you may have to go and enable your custom settings, but the memory should show the new stick you installed, If not it's possible you have a bad stick, it won't be the first time, good luck

Put the original memory back in and see if the laptop starts up. If it does, you may have chosen modules that were not designed for the laptop.

Iupgraded my memory and computer will not recognize slot 2


Don't worry about what Windows says...check your BIOS. Also the other stick must match in type ddr in speed exactly for it to work. Last choice take it out and reseat it. If it doesn't work or if the ram is damaged you will hear 4 very long beeps when you start up.

T30 2366 not recovering from original recovery disk


The 2 gig partition is probably your recovery partition that allows you to restore your computer from the hard drive instead of the Operating System discs that came with the unit. You don't really want to mess with your partitions (you may accidently delete all your data). I'd recommend using Acronis True Image and backing your data to an external hard drive first, you can copy individual folders or the entire hard drive. Then you can just destructive restore your entire hard drive back to factory settings.
