hp & lenovo and #amd & #intel #memory bus nightmares

 

lost a few hours yesterday to some hp & lenovo and amd & intel memory bus nightmares started when i tried swapping DDR3 / PC3 / PC3L ram between an HP and two LENOVO notebooks

  • HP 255 G2 with AMD A4 memory bus FIXED at 1600Mhz
  • Lenovo T410 with Core i5 memory bus ONLY works at 1333Mhz
  • Lenovo Z50 with AMD FX7500 memory bus FIXED at 800Mhz

Basically the T41o refused to work with any of the other memory whereas i thought DDR3 ram was downwards compatible.

Actually just looking at my photos maybe PC3L is not downwards compatible with PC3 ?

nooo can it be true that some @Intel® Core™ i7 are Dual Core and some are Quad Core

have you just bought a bargain T60 or T61 from bentham ltd t/a morgan computers for less than £150 ? and are you new to ibm lenovo thinkpads ?

if so then you may be interested to learn that ibm lenovo thinkpad thinkvantage is not just a blue button on your keyboard

there are also some associated apps that you can download

so after you have manually installed the intel pro/wireless 3945 ABG network driver you can install the thinkvantage productivity center and use it to run thinkvantage system update which should detect and install all the other device drivers you need such as the intel pro/1000 PL network driver and loads of other thinkvantage utilities !
