Maxiumum RAM

The ThinkPad T30 is clearly specified as having a maximum memory of 1GB (2 x 512MB SO-DIMMs).

But I tried using 2GB (2 x 1GB SO-DIMMs) and it works just fine.

Here is my configuration:

  • ThinkPad T30, model 2366-92U (1.8 GHz),
  • BIOS Version 2.08 (1IET69WW),
  • Embedded Controller Version 1.06
  • 2 x Kingmax 1GB 200-Pin DDR SO-DIMM DDR333 (PC2700), Model # MSAD42D-KI

I bought them from, Item # N82E16820155111.

Other brands/models might also work; this is what I used and it works fine.

I'm not seeing T30 listed on that page. Pi3832 19:05, 16 January 2012 (CET)

parallel port

My T30 has a parallel port, but pins 18-25 are not all ground. Pins 18-20,23 are ground, but others seem to float. So a homebrew device that signals a desktop on pins 11/25 (using an open collector transistor) has to use pins 11/18 on the T30
