Lenovo T61 2gb, Factory shipped with 1x2gb stick or 2x1gb sticks?

2008-12-27, 15:09 PM

I want to upgrade my ram and im either going to buy 2x2gb sticks or 1x2gb stick depending on what it was shipped with. Does anyone know? I am running vista 32 bit, will the 4gb be worthless?


Also, what is the intel turbo memory

I had a T61 with 2Gb (factory installed 1+1), which I recently upgraded with a 2Gb module. I replaced the first 1Gb module installed. The second or remaining module I left as 1Gb since I don't anticipate using a 64 bit OS anytime.


40Y7735 2GB PC2 5300 DDR2 SDRAM   (Mfg part #: 40Y7735)


I too have Vista 32, which will only recognize a total of 3Gb of installed RAM.  You can always try to sell the spare 1Gb module on eBay... 


BTW...there has been no noticable performance increase of my T61 since this upgrade.  It's still the same dog it's always been, and quite frankly the worst experience I've had with any of the past 5 thinkpads I've owned.


Cheers, Mark
