M93P sff ram upgrade 32GB

2019-08-01, 21:40 PM

Hello,

I've recently bought a second hand Lenovo M93p SFF with 8GB RAM 1333 (2GB x 4).

I've just bought a second hand KOMPUTERBAY RAM 1600 (speed recommended by Lenovo), 4 DIMM of 8GB.

 

In this 4 DIMM there are two different models, I will call them model A and model B (same speed PC3-12800 DDR3, different latency). If I mix the models I get 3 short beeps and 1 long beep, for instance ABAB or AB or BA, always beeps.

If I put the equal models AA or BB I get 16GB and it works, so all modules are working good separately with his twin.

 

My BIOS is old FBKT73AUS. I've tried to upgrade it via USB stick but I get an error: BIOS version is lower than or equal to 97. Please use Windows version flash tool. (I'm not using Windows right now).

 

If I upgrade the BIOS, is there a possibility to use the 4 DIMM together?

 

Thanks in advance

I just want to say: do not use Windows flash tool, it will hang and you will have another problem. Download an ISO for updating to an older version (like A1, I don't exactly remember), update to it and then to the latest version.

32 GB in 4 DIMMs on M93p are certainly possible but there is no way to say whether the BIOS update will help.

YGRIG, thanks for the heads up! Following your instructions I've updated to a older version and now I have the last version via ISO.

Unfortunately my M93p SFF is not still capable to read diferent RAM memory, only equal pairs of DIMMs.
