Greetings to the list.

i'm proud owner and user of a thinkpadĀ  600E

https://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Category:600E

Unfortunately trying to upgrade its memory i bought
a PC133 memory module. When its plugged in in either
of one memory slots (even alone) (i've tested all possible
setups with or without a companion old working pc66 module)
and unfortunately the machine will just display the memory count
and it kindof freezes. Even F1 to bios diagnostics wont work. In
the spirit of the manual i'm in the 'No Beep Syptoms' category.


So i guess the memory is faulty ? or i there are PC133 (newer?) types
not compatible with my chipset.

The diacritics of the memory's sticker:
Samsung
KR 0545
M464S3254EUS-L7A
PC133S-333-542
256MB Sync 133MHZ CL3

On chip :

SAMSUNG 133
K4S561632B-TL75
ABE938XX KOREA

I bought if from ebay
