Hi Ananthprasath!


Thank you for using the community forums. Based on the specifications of the Thinkpad T430, the compatible type of RAM for this laptop is PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets. That may be the reason why it's having an issue when you installed your RAM. You can check here for more information https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/withdrawnbook/ThinkPad_T430.pdf
