Re: T61 upgrade-arama

Tuus, as usual thanks again for not only the valauble info but the quick responses.

 

RMA applied for, that memory's going back.  Searching for sources on teh 5300, sticks, but not finding much brand name.  May go ahead and get 6400 instead.  Sticking with 8GB because I may run 64-bit linux from time to time on this laptop, but will stick with 32-bit Windows as I hear 64-bit won't run on t61s.

 

- Dan

You heard wrong, the T61 is fully 64 bit compatible and the 64bit windows version runs great on them. You can even use your 32bit key to activate it.

Hi Dan!

You need LOW DENSITY ram! You can find to EBAY 2x4G aprox $100 (Crucial, Hynx, Samsung, Micron).

Low density or high density ram may look like (8 or 16 chips, single or double sided) and the difference is the internal architecture of the chip. Sorry for my english!

I've been looking for months on Amazon for 4GB name brand memory.  Anyone got a good source for this?  I'm going to give up and just put in 2x2GB 5300 until I can find the 4Gb sticks.

I can usually get the 4gb dimms but they are close to $90-100 each, or the 2gb for about $18 each.
