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)

lenovo thinkpad (inc X220, X230) BIOS setup problems and BIOS update #sysadmin

having problems getting into the BIOS !

options to try (after pressing power button or while pressing power button)

  • F1
  • F2
  • F12
  • ENTER key
  • ESC key
  • ThinkPad key
  • removing PSU then rebooting
  • or someone has even suggested (for windows 10 UEFI only) “C:> shutdown /fw /r /t 10”

lenovo system update for thinkpad is now available for windows 7 and windows 10

NOTE : despite what the online docs say the windows store windows 10 lenovo vantage app does NOT detect same updates as the native windows 7 & 10 lenovo system update app

Im afraid I really would prefer to have the 10 x X220s
