Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook ?

T30 working with 1/2 memory RAM

\015 I have a T30 that originally comes with a 1GB of memory RAM (two sticks of 512MB each); well one year ago one of the memory sticks passed away, at least I though so, when I tried to change it I realized it was the mother board, not the memory... So the only thing I can do for my old laptop to still working on it was install Ubuntu, a Llinux OS that is lighter than Win Xp, run better and faster than XP even with less RAM..Conclusion: If you want don't want to spend a lot of money to save your old computer from trash install on it Ubuntu OS it's free and very good...Bye and good luck!!\015
