You don't say what you mean by "a short time."
have you gone into the CMOS setup to see if the settings are good?
Does Windows actually start? If not, put a Windows system disk in and boot from it and do a scandisk from it.
Did you leave the old memory in? If so, remove it an just use the new memory.
You can also check to see what is going on by placing the old memory back in and see if it works. If it does, go into control panel, admin tools, and event log. Check to see what might have been recorded there to get an idea why it's cycling.

How can increes speed of computer.


you are using Thinkpad T30 2366 and if it has a low RAM (memory) you can upgrade that. I check your computer specs online and what I saw is this P4-M 1.8 GHz but unable to verify if it has 256mb RAM. If it does you can upgrade that to 512mb.

you can look on this website { http://www.edgetechcorp.com/memory/upgrade.asp?cid=27556 } just to check the compatible RAM for your computer.

I am trying to install new RAM on my mother's Sony VAIO PCG-K25 laptop. It had two slots, each with 256MB sticks in them. I replaced these with 512MB sticks, and the computer wouldn't boot. It wouldn't...


make sure they are compatible with your computer, there are alot of electronic stores (circuit city) was the worst at it, but will sell you the wrong ones and say they are backwards compatible.. usually P4 2.8 can run PC2700, some run PC2100, which im hoping yours is PC2700... if so, make sure they are NON-ECC also... i would just get 2 1 gig PC2700 DDR 200pin sticks and stick em in... good luck

Compaq Presario Notebook V3000T I replaced the 2-256mb memory cards with 2-1g memory cards. System boots up but only reads 1024mb?


Thanks to Microsoft Knowledge Base for help with my answer:

First, find out what the maximum amount of memory is. This is generally listed by most of the manufacturers. This will let you know what upgrade potential the system has. Next, determine how the memory configuration is when you buy the system. For example, a laptop that has 2GB of memory can be configured as either a single 2GB module or two 1GB modules. The single memory module allows for better upgrade potential because by adding another module you are gaining more memory without sacrificing any current memory. Upgrading the two module situation with a 2GB upgrade would result in the loss of one 1GB module and a memory total of 3GB.

Memory Upgrade


Not knowing what model of computer you are talking about, I'd suggest you try various combination's with your memory modules as some computers are picky and accept certain size memory chips in certain slots only.
Furthermore, it could be there is a bad connection on the sockets or if you have not been ESD safe, you could have zapped the memory chips and or the main board.

Please help with memory upgrade problem


Roy,

This is a common problem with memory. Memory that matches what you have in your computer may not be compatible. The best way to find compatible memory for your computer is to visit websites of manufacturers who produce memory. Here are two sites where you can begin. You will need your computer brand and model in order to search for compatible memory.
