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

My IBM thinkpad t30 beeps 8 times at me when i go to turn it on and will not start up what is that


Video memory error. The BIOS cannot write to the frame buffer memory on the video card. Since the frame buffer memory is on the video board's memory chips then you will have to replace the entire board.

Ibm t30 bios shows 512 megs of memory i have 1024 installed


Hello my friend if is not something visual(like unconnected soldering pins on the motherboard)then you can not do anything else than change your motherboard.But if you compare the two slots and you see difference then you can connect this tire or pins with soldering gun.

IBM THINKPAD T30 memory slot problem


This problem can be fixed very easily. Find some one who knows how to solder and have them reflow slot #2. My T30 has run great for along time then all of a sudden I only had 1/2 my memory. I did what everyone should do in that situation I Googled it and it brought me here. I happen to be Service Tech for a cell phone company. I took my Laptop to work with me and reflowed the side mounts and every pin around the slot. It has worked flawless ever since.

Hello. I have a IBM t-30 and for some reason, the battery wont charge. The battery is fairly new. Can anyone offer any solutions?


IBM created your nightmare when sold out to CHINESE copy cats. Your 2- slot MEMORY BAYS are probably at fault. Wing Nang did not properly solder in the memory bays at manufacture. Try cleaning each MEMORY BAY with CLEAN TOOTHBRUSH, also the MEMORY CHIPS themselves, install in ONE memory BAY, test laptop, then in the OTHER BAY. I suspect T30 will work with ONE of those bays loaded. The OTHER BAY is probably "cold soldered".. BETCHA !!

Ram Slot Not Recognised


This is a common problem with all thinkpads. The issue is caused by a blue case bumper pushing down on the reverse side of the memory slots and the memory door/cover. The memory cards will put uneven pressure on the solder joints causing cracks. There was a engineering fix offered to t30 owners under warentee. This fix was a motherboard swap out and a new memory cover with the proper distance needed. Since thinkpad is now owned by another company (lenovo) You may have issues getting the laptop fixed.

I had to purchase a new motherboard to fix mine. You can also send your machine in to a repair shop to have it reworked by hand but it usually costs about the same. (200$USD was how much I had to pay.)

IBM T30 start up problems! need help


hi,
It's the memory slots. Trust me, I've seen this many times.
Do this.
Take memory out. re-install only 1 piece of known good memory in the slot closest to the rear of the laptop. Now, press on the memory slot itself, as if to push it into the motherboard, while turning the system on. If that doesn't work, try the other slot. I promise, this is the trouble 95% of the time. IF it works get back to me and we'll discuss how to repair it so you won't have to keep pressure on the memory slot.
Good luck

IBM Thinkpad T30 2367 beeps 8 times


Hi,
It's your memory, or more to the point, the memory slots. take all memory out, install 1 piece in the slot closest to the back of the laptop, push down on the memory as if pushing it into the motherboard, and hold pressure while booting.
Bet that works. if not, let me know.
I've got the same machine.
Good luck
