    As a matter of fact,the laptop does get very hot on the bottom plus the battery doesnt last long on its own.We are running Windows XP and our common sites would be E-Bay and Facebook. Maybe we should replace battery ?

    adding more memory is always a good option. lots of variables to a computer freezing up. what operating system are you using. what programs are you running when it freezes... and one other thing tho it usually causes the computer to shut off.... is it extremely hot on the bottom ?

Yes you can get a 512mb chip for this. As for the freezing, it could be a number of issues, anything from a software glitch or conflict, to a failing hardware component. Start by going to filehippo.com, downloading and running CCleaner. If it's a glitch, this cleaning program should clear it. It it continues, the first thing to try is removing the battery and see if it's still freezing. Batteries are notorious for causing this. Then try a system restore back about a month or so. It could also be that the programs you're currently running need more resource than 256mb in the memory, so tadd the 512mb chip and see if that cures it. If it persists after you try these, get back to me, and we'll see if we can figure it out.

Need to upgrade my ram from 256 to 512


Search Amazon for 256 mb modules. I found some today.

Some of the old laptops hold a MAX of 64, 126 256 mb pc66 or pc100 ram... and...


There are actually a few things you can do for a dinosaur laptop (other than waiting for the asteroid to appear in the sky). Here are my top three suggestions:

  1. Squeeze in as much RAM as possible. If you have a spare SIMM slot, put in the largest-capacity module you can find. You may have to throw away what's already in there--likely a 16MB module--and replace it with a 32MB or 64MB one. Memory was so expensive five years ago that vendors often skimped on it, but now that prices have plummeted, you should pack in as much as possible. (You may also look around for a chip doubler--a SIMM two-for that lets you put a pair of chips where there's only room for a single.)

  2. Get a huge, honking hard drive. You should be able to dig up a compatible 10GB or 20GB drive. What's great is that it'll run at 4,200rpm (compared to the 3,600rpm drive you currently have), which will result in better performance. Save all your precious data, swap the old drive out for the new, and fire it up (crossing your fingers that the OS sees the new drive). Take note: You'll have to preload an operating system onto the new drive or load it on the fly.

  3. Accelerate. You'll want to configure Windows to run your hard disk and graphics card at their maximum speeds.
  • Hard drive: Go to the device manager, select the drive letter, and pick the Settings tab. Check DMA for best performance. For Windows 2000, go into the hard drive's properties, open Disk Properties, and check Write Cache Enabled.

  • Graphics card: On your desktop, right-click and select Properties. Select the Advanced tab, then click the Performance tab. Push the slider all the way to the right.

I would like to nwom how much of memory this laptop support


The Thinkpad is installed with 128 MB SDRAM is standard, and is expandable to 512 MB
There are two memory slots, to expand it to 512 Mb you need two 256 Mb RAM modules and throw away the 128 Mb RAM module, but if you don't throw away this module and you insert a 256 Mb RAM module in the 2nd memory slot then your total memory would be 384 Mb.
