memory install

2010-08-19, 15:30 PM

I would like to add more memory to my T400s.  I have the memory chip.  I don't have any instructions or manuals. 

 

Do I simply flip over the back, remove the cover and put it in?  Do I need to reboot?

sdr09, You will need to power off the system. Install the memory via the small bottom cover and then restart. The memory should be detected automatically. Note if you are running 32 bit OS, you may not see more than 4 GB in Windows. Mark

Thanks!  I put it in already.  The first time I was too gentle I guess.  I had to repeat it and made sure it clicked into place this time.

In the future, be sure to go to Lenovo's support website and download the Hardware Maintenance Manual for your machine. It details how to take apart every piece of your machine!
