I have a M58p 3484-Y2S with 2x 2gb sticks of RAM running Win7 x64. I purchased 2x 2gb sticks of RAM to add. When I add the RAM, I get the Memory Error beep (1-3-3-1). I've tried booting with just one of the new sticks, or both new sticks with the same results. I doubt I was shipped two bad sticks of RAM. It seems as if it's the wrong RAM, but it seems to be right.
Computer: M58p 3484-Y2S
New RAM: Crucial 2GB 240 Pin DIMM DDR3PC3-10600 UnBuffered; model # CT25664BA1339
Lenovo's recommended RAM: http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:item.detail?...
RAM I purchased: http://www.crucial.com/store/partspecs.aspx?imodule=CT25664BA1339
Any idea what's going on here?

After many hours of frustration I just came across your post. I'm hoping this is the solution to my M58 RAM upgrade as well. I'm curious what RAM module ended up working. Was there a Crucial module that worked or was there another mfr?
Thanks for any advice.

I had a similar issue when I purchased and installed an additional 4gb of ram, from my parts vendor.
I got post errors (beep codes) The modules aren't oem, but they are a reliable and competent parts vendor.
They only sell memory and hard drives and they said they were compatible, plus the last 2gb stick I bought form them worked fine. So I called them.
It turned out that I just needed to update the bios to support more than 4gb,now my m58p 7220 has 8gb and it works fine.
If you'd like a link to my vendor and the modules I used, message me and I'll dig up the receipt and send you a link to the vendor (4gb cost me like 40 bucks I think) the bios update is easy to find on this site, I'm sure you'll have no trouble there.
