Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a t30 laptop that has two slots for ram. I purchased two 1gig chips from company that says the ram will provide 2 gig operation it does not work. They supplied another set of chips to test if others were defective, not the case. Is there a cure to make 2 gig capable? Thanks F.

I need a guide in order to upgrade the memory of my Toshiba Satellite P205D-S7438. I'm not an expert at all but I already did so on another laptop (another brand too) and I know it is possible for me as...


This is real easy underneath you will see a large flap undo the screws hold it, and remove, you will see the RAM slotted into the socket,simply obtain the correct RAM for your laptop, and slot it in besides, or instead of, replace cover, and reboot, it will automatically be detected and used. If you have done it before then you are on your way to being an expert.. Oh we always say and "X" is an unknown quantity, and a "Spurt" is "Drip" under pressure...Xpert... < Joke.

2 slots does NOT mean Dual Channel, that just allows for 2 RAM chips

DDR2's only showing half installed RAM


IF THE SYSTEM SAYS YOU HAVE 1GB RAM THAN YOU HAVE 1 GIG OF RAM, EVEN THOU SOMEONE TOLD YOU YOU HAD 2-512MG=1GB.

HERE IS HOW I SEE WHAT YOU ARE SAYING YOU HAVE 2-DDR-2 1 GIG STICKS THAT MEAN IF 1 IS INSTALLED THAN YOU HAVE 1 GB AND IF YOU COULD GET 2 STICKS WORKING TOGETHER THAN YOU WOULD HAVE 2GB RAM.
1 CHIP SET = 1GB RAM
2 CHIP SET = 2GB RAM

YOU MOTHERBOARD MAY NOT ALLOW THAT MUCH RAM, OR WHAT I MEAN THE BIOS MAKE UP THE AMOUNT OF RAM.

TO RULE OUT ANY BAD CHIP SETS OR GOOD RAM OR BAD RAM.

TAKE THE PEACE OF RAM THAT IS WORKING OUT AND REPLACE IT WITH THE OTHER PEACE AND SEE IF IT WILL RUN.
IF IT WORKS THAN LEAVE THAT ONE IN PLACE AND INSTALL THE SECOND PEACE IN THE SECOND SLOT.
IF BOTH CHIP SET ARE GOOD THAN BOTH SHOULD WORK OKAY TOGETHER.
IF THERE IS A PROBLEM, IT MAYBE SOME DUST IN THE MEMORY LOTS
OR THE SLOT MAYBE DAMAGED.
OR
THE CHIP DESIGN LAYOUT MAYBE THE OPPOSITE SIDE, THIS MAY MEANS THE CHIPS MAY FACE EACH OTHER, OR FACE OUTWARD FROM EACH OTHER.

Memory upgrade


THIS MAY BE A BOIS PROBLEM, THE SOFTWARE OPERATIONAL SYSTEM WILL ONLY ALLOW TWO 2 SLOTS TO WORK IN THE MEMORY CONFIGURATION, EVEN THROUGH YOU HAVE 4 BANKS, MOST LIKELY 2 BANKS WITH THE MAXIMUIN MEMORY OF 2GB PER SLOT FOR THE TOTOAL OF 4GB OF RAM NOT 4 SINGLE 1GB CHIP SETS. YOU SHOULD TRY IT.

Laptop memory upgrade


Your Laptop is using DDR2 Memory, just find your nearest retailer that sells memory and go buy you a chip, ur laptop ships with 1024mb of ram as standard, if you want to get a decent boost pretty cheap then i would just buy another 1gig chip and put it in beside the one already there.

Not sure what your system maxes out at but the average is 4gig of ram so you could try a couple of 2 gig chips if you feel you need that much ram

Install 2 RAM modules of 1 GB


The other memory may be soldered in. Check your manual and see if it has any information on additional memory. If you only have on expansion slot you may have to buy larger memory chips. like instead of 2 chips 1 gig each you may have to purchase a 2 gig chip. Computer companies usually make the chip installation easy to get to on lap tops.
