Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook

1 Answer

It looks like common problem: my OLD T30 can see only one 256mB memory slot. Does it make sense to install one 512 mB unit? Can T30 recognize 1gB memory? Thank you in advance

Hello

Yes, you system will support up to 1GB of ram, so, if i were you i would suggest that you buy a 1GB chip, this will give you the best performance upgrade. And, ram is so cheap at the moment, so, i think it will be the best option.

Let me know if you found this helpful.

Kind regards
Andrea

I am trying to expand memory by inserting 2 PC3200 (DDR400) but total amont of memory size does not changed (still 512 MB) First slot (DDR1) APACER-512 MB Second slot (DDR2) LG Electronics - 1GB


Hi,

Take the stick of 512 out of the motherboard and insert the 1GB stick in DIMM 1 slot and switch the machine on. If it comes on check whether it has registered it as 1GB. If it has turn the machine off and just put in the 512 stick.

If the machine won't boot up with the 1GB stick then it could be faulty or the motherboard doesn't support 400MHz (which it should).


Regards.

Sony Vaio not recognized installed memory


Swap the modules between the slots.

If the message shanges to slot 0 not recogonized, then you have a bad memory module,
Easy fix, just get another module.

If the message does not change, then you have a problem on the mother board.
Not an easy fix, it would be cheaper to buy a 1GB module and use the good slot.

Good Luck!

When upgrading from one 256 K memory module to two 512 modules how do you get the second slot to recognize the second 512 module?


I am sure when you say 256k you mean 256 mb? You should not have to do anything for the computer to recognize it. Almost all computers are set up to automatically recognize memory. When installed and you right click on my computer and select properties how much ram does it say is installed? If it is just shy of 1GB or if says something like 985MB then that would be normal. If it only says 512 or 469MB then you have a problem with the second memory bank.

Memory installation


Most likely, it is a limitation of your motherboard. Not all motherboards or computers can physically read all types of memory or they may have memory limitations. For instance, I was working on an older Gateway this week. It had 2 memory slots but the maximum amount of memory the computer would recognize is 512 MB. Therefore, if I had put to 1 GB sticks in, provided the computer could use it, the maximum the computer would be able to see or use is 512 MB. In this instance, that is most likely the scenario. The best thing to do is to go to www.crucial.com and run the system scanner. It will tell you how many slots you have, what the maximum per slot capacity and the total capacity of your computer is.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

RAM Recognition 835GM PC Desktop


the memory is dual channel, so you have to use matched memory for it to work 1gig in each slot if possible, check the 1 gigs and 512's to see if they run at the same bus speed, if they are not matched there is your problem try a gig and a 512 in slot 0 to see if it picks the memory up, also there is sometimes an option in the bios to dissable dual mode

RAM NOT DETECTING


I had the same issue on this board where it came with a Samsung 512 MB 533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2 DIMM. I put in a 1 GB Kingston with the same specs (533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2) and it would not recongize the Samsung anymore with the system reading as 1 GB of RAM instead of 1.5 GB. Tried every configuration and would only see the Kingston. It would only see the Samsung if I pulled out the Kingston regarless of the slots I use. So, I just bought the exact same make/model of Kingston and it recognized that fine and the system now has 2 GB of memory (max this board allows). And, I had already installed the latest BIOS for this board from Intel before doing all this so wasn't an old BIOS. I'm figuring the board didn't like something about the Samsung memory (speed, module configuration, etc.) that made it not play nice with the Kingston. If interested I bought the DM8400A/1G Kingston modules. And, this board appears not to support dual channel memory. Only has channel A, slots 0 and 1, and I read need two channels to support dual channel (seems obvious). Boards that supports dual channel memory normally have 4 memory slots, two for channel A and two for channel B, then put in matching modules in slot 0 for channel A and B and have dual channel memory access. And if want more ram, then matching modules in slot 1 for channel A and B.

Memory (RAM) issue


How many RAM slots do you have? Are they coloured differentlly? For example 2 blue, 2 black. If so.. Put one 512 MB DIMM in either a black one or a blue one, and the other DIMM in the other slot of the same colour.

I hope this solves your problem.
