IBM ThinkPad T40 2GB Max RAM

\015 Hi I own a IBM ThinkPad T40 and going to install 2GB RAM. it has right now 512MB on the bottom door and 256MB if I remove the keyboard to get to it. I have Microsoft Windows Vista on it and it just reads the 512MB, So I'm guessing the 256MB is not ment to be removed and is needed for it to start the laptop and doesn't count with the 512MB socket area, and Woundering if I could still install the 2GB RAM Max. I have the Manual of my T40 and it states that 2GB is its Max.\015

Answers :

Why the hell did IBM locate the 2nd RAM slot under the keyboard?!

Why don't they just put both in the same place like normal lappy's

=] just sayin'
My T40 came standard with 256MB of memory in each memory slot, totaling 512MB of memory. I just got two of the same 1GB DDR 266 memory sticks and tried to install them both. I installed both memory sticks, but when I tried to boot my laptop it @ first it stared to beep, then nothing worked. After that I uninstalled the base memory (the one under the keyboard) and put back in the 256MB memory stick (the original one), and then my laptop started just fine, saying that there was 1.28GB (1GB + 256MB).

Does anyone know why the base memory slot will not take my 1GB memory stick???

Thank u.
