bizarro @HP and @Lenovo Intel i5 notebook 4GB DDR3L SODIMM memory problem

bizarro @HP and @Lenovo Intel i5 notebook 4GB DDR3L SODIMM memory problem

got some wierd crucial memory that crashes a HP EliteBook and a Lenovo ThinkPad notebooks

crashes on boot ! and fails memory test ! with the msg “Pa_sed” which i assume means FAILED ! bizarely works fine when “mixed” with a 2GB non crucial ram in a Thinkpad X220 and X410

so the mystery is what is the difference between crucial part no 171994 and no 313550 ?

every other param is IDENTICAL

  • 4GB DDE3L-1600 SODIMM 1.35V CL11 (171994  – B.M16FKD)
  • 4GB DDE3L-1600 SODIMM 1.35V CL11 (313550 – BJ.M8FP)

Windows 7 to Windows 10 upgrade tips

Windows 7 updates still seem to be working but you wont get any new updates in the future.

win7up

The Windows 10 upgrade seems to work pretty well even with old hardware so if you are still running an unsupported Windows 7 PC its worthwhile creating the Windows 10 installation media / iso

then when prompted by Windows 10 installer / updater for a licence key try using your existing Windows 7 key from the sticker on the back of your pc – you might get lucky – otherwise leave it blank

One exception i have found was an old SAMSUNG NP-Q35 with an Intel Core 2 T7200 which had multiple Windows 10 audio, video, usb & wireless driver problems:

intel 945 express

Your computer’s system firmware does not include enough information to properly configure and use this device. To use this device, contact your computer manufacturer to obtain a firmware or BIOS update. (Code 35)

intel 82801 GBM/GHM (ICH-7)

multiple errors

intel pro/wireless 3945 ABG

          dead

audio

dead

you can get around the intel pro/wireless with a realtek rtl8723b usb wifi dongle (~ £10)

finally if your cant get your old hardware to work with Windows 10 try upcycling it by replacing Windows 7 with LinuxLiteOS
