T470 Crucial Memory Upgrade Install now laptop will not boot

2019-08-22, 15:02 PM

I have never had this problem when using Crucial memory upgrades in the past and wanted to run this by all on the forum.

Current memory installed on the T470  Lenovo 8GB DDR4 2400MHz SoDIMM Memory FRU 01AG710. Goal was to add another 8GB in the vacant memory slot.

 

1. Using Crucial website memory upgrade tool selected and purchased their recomendation, 8GB DDR4-2400 SODIUM 1.2V CL17 notebook memory.

2. Installed the Crucial 8GB DDR4-2400 SODIUM 1.2V CL17.

3. Power up the T470, can see there power getting to the T40 but only a blank screen, green dot lit on the power button. No Bios access or any orther functions other than to press the lit power on button to power off.

4. Removed the Crucial 8GB DDR4-2400 SODIUM 1.2V CL17

5. System boots up normal.

 

Any one else experienced this problem?

I've generally had good luck with Crucial too.

 

One thing: 1st boot with new memory installed takes a while.  Be sure you've given it several minutes to sort things.  After that boot will be normal.

 

Not saying that's what is going on - but it might be.

Good suggestion zoltanthegypsy. Tried but did not succeed. I did upgrade the the original 250Gb NVMeM.2 drive to a 500GB 970 EVO with no problem. Must be something wrong with the Crucial memory, coexistance problem with the original installed 8GB, or the empty memory slot.

 

Thanks for trying to help

I have the exact same issue with my New Lenovo E14 (Type: 20RA001WAU) replacing the factory installed Samsung 8GB 2666 SoDIMM with Crucial 16GB 2666 SoDIMM.

I have googled the lenovo website for compatibility issues and also the used the Crucial websites RAM recommendation ( as outlined here: https://www.crucial.com/compatible-upgrade-for/lenovo/thinkpad-e14#memory) and selected the Crucial 16GB DDR4-2666 SODIMM - CT16G4SFD8266 - Configuration ID: CT16140718 
 

Same issue - Black screen, won't boot, boots fine when original RAM is re-inserted.  I have also tried the same SoDIMM in my Thinkcentre Tiny M720q as it has the same SoDIMM as the laptop.  

Same Issue Again!  I have had the original DIMM replaced once already as DOA, but the replacement is doing the same thing.  I just need to know who is responsible - I'm thinking Lenovo as they have not listed any Supported RAM list
