My mum has a IBM thinkpad 600E laptop. She would like to upgrade the ram. It appears on 'my computer' that it has 128mb in it. I have had a look and it looks lie it has two sticks in, but they don't say what they are. I suspect they will be 64mb each?? Can she replace one of those with 256mb or even 512mb or not. Anyone know? Thanks in advance.

This should tell you the maximum amount of ram that Laptop can take. Alternatively check IBM Site for the info. Another way is to go to the Crucial site and check memory there

i HAD ALREADY BEEN ON CRUCIAL. iT GIVES THE RIGHT RAM TO BUY BUT THAT COULD BE TO REPLACE WHAT IS IN WHEN IT NEEDS REPLACING FOR WHATEVER REASON. WHAT SHE NEEDS TO KNOW IF SHE CAN SHE ADD TO THE 128 WHICH IS ALREADY THERE. NO MANUAL EITHER. ANYMORE IDEAS. THE IBM SITE IS NOT MAKING IT CLEAR. i HAVE USUALLY DONE ALL THE SIMPLE ANSWERS BEFORE i GET TO THIS STAGE OF TEARING MY HAIR OUT!!!

By Skyvers last link, you can quite safely buy two sticks of 128mb RAM to replace what is currently installed

If you use the link that skidzy supplied (to Belarc) you can go direct from there to Crucial; that way you'll know exactly what will fit your mum's system and what the alternatives are. I've used that method several times ; very reliable.

I have owned an Ibm thinkpad, very good. I have also used crucial to upgrade. They are very good value and tell you just what you need.
