I have 'inherited' a Lenovo 96864BU ThinkCentre 3000 J205 desktop. I have copies of the users guide and hardware manual. It currently has 1GB sticks in slots 0 and 3.
Crucial gives two different upgrade possibilities: 'System Scanner' says this has two slots for max of 2GB. Digging down 'self finder' show it has 4 slots with a max of 8GB. They physical motherboard has 4 slots. How do I upgrade the memory (if possible)? I tried using a 2GB stick in slot 0 and it refused to boot. Tried two 2GB sticks in slot 0 & 3 and it refused to boot. Tried adding single 2GB to the two 1GB sticks, refused to boot... What am I doing wrong as I sit here with 2X1GB sticks and 2X2GB Sticks?
I'm relatively new to this so pls excuse me if I can't explain it the first time.
Thanks for any help. Andy
