Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook ?

When I insert a DIMM into my IBM T30 RAM slot, it is loose and is not recognized by SI. When I hold pressure on the DIMM, it is recognized. The RAM slot has apparently increased in size, possibly due to heat, and no longer provides a snug fit for a DIMM. Is there a fix? Thank you, Jon

Answers :

Try padding up the DIMM terminals with lead solder to make it tight and snug it fit into the RAM slots.
The problem is with the motherboard slot for the memory.
