    ThinkPad I-series type 1161 memory upgrade is it possible to place a piece
    of 144 pin 256MB pc133 memory in the spare memory slot ?

    Will it conflict with the 64 Mb Memory already on board or wont work at all
    seeing the maximum memory size is listed at 192MB

    Rowdy -
    I don't know if a 256 will work, but if it does the system will see
    only 128 meg of that 256 - the system limit is 192 meg. I'd suggest
    getting 128 meg - either PC100 or PC133 will work - I'm using PC133 in
    my 1161, and last I knew it was still in stock at Best Buy and
    probably other retailers.
