ThinkPad T30 2366-41U ThinkPad T30 2366-41U ThinkPad T30 memory issue

    I have a ThinkPad T30 2366-41U and I tried doing a memory upgrade. It
    already has 512 so I purchased the exact module to add to the second
    slot - this is what happens:

    System Properties stated 512 of RAM showing.

    I reseated the modules - no dice.

    I booted the laptop with the one memory module in each slot - if I have
    the memory in a particular slot; I just got a bunch of beeps. The other
    slot came up fine so this rule out bad memory.

    What it looks like - one of the Expansions Slots is bad.

    Have you ever seen this? Is there a quick fix?

    What would you recommend?


    Thank you in advanced for any help

    Known problem with the T30 model Thinkpads, one memory slot can't read
    512MB, or sometimes any, added memory.

    There was an extended repair warranty that recently expired for this
    problem, but you can't lose anything by contacting IBM repair and lodging a
    complaint.

    A piece of cardboard under the memory slot cover to push gently the
    memory module did help with me !

    I'll I'd probably just buy a 1G RAM module and stick it in the good
    slot.

    1. is that possible without braking anything?
    2. Could anyone recommentd a 1 GB moduale for my T30 2366-41U?

    Thanks

    Any cheap PC2100 stick will work just fine.
