lenovo m58 7630 ram

2019-11-09, 3:38 AM

Hi

 

I recently bought a refurbished lenovo m58 7630. It came with 1 stick of 1GB DDR3 pc3-10600 ram.

 

I bought 2 X 2GB pc3-10600 ram sticks but the pc pont POST and just does a series of beeps.

 

How come the stick it came with works but the ones I bought don't work?? Will I need to just buy the pc3-8500 ram that it specifies the pc takes or is there a way around this as it's for a birthday present for the end of the month quick responses are appreciated.

 

Thanks

Either one, PC3-8500 or PC3-10600 will work. I have several M58's with a mix of the 2. But they all must be NON-ECC.   So I'd say you either got 2 bad sticks, or you got ECC ones.

Is there a visual way of telling if they are ecc or not as they look fine

I believe that M58 requires low or single density memory, which is in increasingly short supply, see this thread:  M58 M58p: 4GB DIMM support for 16GB max memory (RAM, BIOS)

The general rule of thumb in deciding what type of memory you need is to look at what’s already installed in your system. To find out if you have ECC, parity, or non-ECC, non-parity memory, count the number of chips on the module. Divide the total number of chips by three. If you can evenly divide the number of chips by three, the module is ECC or parity, if not, then it is a non-ECC, non-parity module.
