T60 Memory Upgrade options

ThinkPad T60 (1952-43U), picked this up off of eBay with the hopes of a memory upgrade to 4GB Ram, but all I can find are instructions for one chip replacement (under palm rest).  Doesn't this model take 2 2GB chips?  My work T60P did, but that was pre Lenovo nameplate.

Re: T60 Memory Upgrade options

Welcome to the forum!

 

Both RAM slots are under the palmrest.

 

While you may install 4GB, the machine will only be able to utilize 3GB, due to a chipset limitation.

 

BTW, "Lenovo" vs. "IBM" branding means nothing. It's just cosmetics. All of *6x series were built by Lenovo.

Cheers,

George

Re: T60 Memory Upgrade options

Thanks George! I'll drop the 4 in anyway! The videos didnt show (as small as they are!) another slot visible. It seems you could get the specs from the 'old' ibm page (where it showed max installable) but I didnt see it on the Lenovo page for that model.

Re: T60 Memory Upgrade options

I imagine it looks very similar to the T61 model and the ram sockets are stacked one on top of the other, so if only one is installed, you probably wouldn't see the second slot if you weren't looking for it.
