It shouldn't matter what order you remove and replace the RAM cards in. The instructions are saying to populate Slot 1, Slot 2, and then other slots in order; don't skip any slots, in other words.

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!

RAM upgrade


(1) flip the Notebook/Laptop PC over - see Fig.1 below
(2) find the memory cover - it really easy to find in this photo.

12_5_2011_7_39_30_am.jpg

Fig.1 Toshiba M35X bottom view - the memory cover is seen at center left and secured by a single screw.

(3) remove the (1) screw securing the memory cover.

12_5_2011_7_42_34_am.jpg

Fig. 2 Toshiba M35X laptop shown with memory cover removed and HDD (Hard Disk Drive) removed, and with the HDD cover flipped up.
The RAM (SO-DIMM boards) are visible at center left.
The HDD cover is seen at the bottom of the photo.

(4) Using proper anti-static/static control techniques, clip alligator clip or your anti-static wrist strap to a frame ground of the laptop at an I/O connector or frame ground under the HDD cover.
(5) carefully remove (2) old 256 MB SO-DIMM DDR333 memory modules.
Store old memory boards in the anti-static plastic baggie in which the new memory boards were shipped.
(6) install (2) new 1GB SO-DIMM DDR333 boards, for total of 2GB of system RAM.
(7) reassemble system, and boot OS (operating system).
The laptop's ROM BIOS will auto-detect the new RAM and begin a standard POST (Power-On Self Test).
(8) If OS is MSWindows, it will also auto-detect the new memory, and allocate it to application software.

The technology of the Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 memory module is called
DDR333, meaning DDR (Double Data Rate) SDRAM (Synchronous Dynamic RAM), at a memory bus speed of 333 MHz.
The Form Factor of the DDR memory card is SO-DIMM, which stands for Small Outline DIMM (Dual In-line Memory Module) (see photo).

How to install upgrade sdram 128 pc133 for gateway 500


INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
1. Place the computer's power switch in the "off " position and disconnect the AC power cord. 2. Remove the computer's top cover following the instructions in the model-specific owner's manual.
3. Before touching any electronic components, make sure you first touch an unpainted, grounded metal object to discharge any static electricity stored on your clothing or body.
4. Locate the memory expansion sockets on the computer's motherboard. If all the sockets are full, remove smaller capacity modules to allow room for higher capacity modules.
5. Handle your new module's carefully; do not flex or bend the module(s). Always grasp the module by its edges.
6. For some installations, DIMM memory can be installed in any available expansion slot. Other installations may require the memory to be installed in a particular sequence based on the modules capacity. Check your owner's manual to determine the correct installation sequence for your configuration.

  • Insert the module into an available expansion socket. Note how the module is keyed to the socket. This ensures the module can be plugged into the socket one way only. Firmly press the module into position, making certain the module is completely seated in the socket. Repeat this procedure for any additional modules you are installing.
  • Most 168-pin DIMM modules have ejector tabs. The ejector tabs are used only when you need to remove a module. By pressing down on the ejector tabs, the module will pop-up from the socket and it can be removed.
  • install_dimmslot.gif
    7. Once the modules have been installed, the computer's top cover can be reinstalled.
    8. Plug in the AC power cord and reinstall any cables disconnected during the installation process.
    9. Turn on the computer and follow the instructions in your computer owner's manual that describe the steps necessary to allow your computer to recognize the newly installed memory.

    IBM T42p doesnt start all of a sudden.


    You possibly have a RAM issue. If you have never done a RAM upgrade to your computer, then eventually most PC's have RAM issues with the more you load programs, download music, and run other processes. Most computers come with basic RAM which is about 1Gig. You can install up to 3 or 4Gigs of RAM on laptops.

    You may purchase the RAM from Best Buys, Microcenter, Radio Shack, or any local computer parts store.

    Here are instrutions on how to replace the RAM once you have purchased the needed RAM.
    You may also need to check your hard drive memory to see if you are getting close to the limit or if your memory is already full. If you download alot of music or alot of programs then this is possibility.

    1. Turn off the computer; then disconnect the AC adapter and all cables from the computer.
    2. Close the computer display, and turn it over.
    3. Remove the battery.
    4. Loosen the screw on the memory slot cover; then remove the cover
    If the SO-DIMM is already in the memory slot, remove it to make room for the new one by pressing out on the latches on both edges of the socket at the same time. Be sure to save it for future use.
    5. Find the notch on the contact edge side of the SO-DIMM.
    Note: To avoid damaging the SO-DIMM, do not touch its contact edge.

    6. With the notched end of the SO-DIMM toward the contact edge side of the socket, insert the SO-DIMM into the socket at an angle of about 20 degrees (1); then press it firmly (2).

    7. Pivot the SO-DIMM downward until it snaps into place.

    8. Make sure that the card is firmly fixed in the slot and does not move easily.

    9. Replace the memory slot cover by aligning the back side of the cover first and then tightening the screw.

    Note:
    When you have added or upgraded an SO-DIMM, do not use your computer until you have closed the cover. Never use the computer with the cover open.

    10. Put the battery back in place, turn the computer over again, and reconnect the cables.

    Replacing memory in the slot under the keyboard
    Replacing memory in the slot under the keyboard
    1. Turn off the computer; then disconnect the ac adapter and all cables from the computer.
    2. Close the computer display, and turn it over.
    3. Remove the battery.
    4. Remove the keyboard.
    5. To replace the SO-DIMM, refer to the procedure given earlier.
    6. Reinstall the keyboard.
    7. Put the battery back in place, turn the computer over again, and reconnect the cables.
    Verifying the install was successful
    Verifying the install was successful
    1. Turn the computer on.
    2. While the "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue Access IBM button" message is displayed at the lower-left of the screen, press the Access IBM button. The ThinkVantage Rescue and Recovery screen opens.
    3. Click Access BIOS. The System Restart Required window is displayed.
    4. Click Yes. The computer restarts, and the BIOS Setup Utility screen opens. The "Installed memory" item shows the total amount of memory installed in your computer.

      For example, if your computer has 256 MB of memory and you install a 256-MB SO-DIMM in it, the quantity shown in "Installed memory" should be 512 MB.
    Lastly, you will need to check to see if you possibly have a virus/spyware on your computer. You will need to log into your virus program and run a system scan "Scan Now". Once it runs and if it detects any threats, be sure to have them removed/deleted. Once you have them removed/deleted, restart your computer.

    I hope this was helpful and thank you for contacting the experts.

    Memory upgrade for P6VEM3 MB


    For this mainboard, you must use 168-pin, 3.3V unbuffered PC100 or PC133 SDRAM memory modules. You can install any size memory module from 32 MB to 512 MB, so the maximum memory size is 2 x 512 MB = 1 GB. As noted on pg. 9 of your manual. Shut down your system. Remove one dimm of memory & start the Pc. Does it boot & do you have video? No? Shut down & replace the the dimm with next stick of memory. Try again. Still no video? Replace memory with old memory. Did you regain video? In most cases of installing new memory it's found the memory just wasn't seated well enough. In few others the memory did not meet the correct voltage.
    prazum post back your findings.
