Upgrading the system memory Your system board has two system memory module sockets: DIMM 0, and DIMM 1. These sockets hold Dual Inline Memory Modules (DIMMs) that contain 3.3V single or double sided synchronous DRAM (SDRAM). You can install up to a maximum of 256MB of system memory into each of these sockets. Click here to see the memory options available from IBM.
Memory module installation
Locate the memory retaining clips at both ends of the socket. Pivot the memory retaining clips outward.
Locate the two notches on the DIMM and the two tabs on the socket. Align the DIMM with the socket. Make sure the notches and tabs align.
Press the DIMM into the socket until the clips lock into the DIMM.
Note: The DIMM socket is slotted to ensure proper installation. If you insert a DIMM but it does not fit easily into the socket, you may have inserted it incorrectly. Turn the DIMM around and try to insert it again.
Memory module removal
To remove a DIMM, pivot the retaining clips on both sides of the socket outward to release the DIMM.
