IBM T42 with Value Ram

Recommended Posts

I've been looking to pick up a new 512mb stick of ram for my IBM T42 2378-FVU, and I know that the corsair website recommends CMSS512MB-333SOD for it. What I was wondering is if model number VS512SDS333 (Value RAM as opposed to 'normal' RAM) would work in this laptop too as it is also CL 2.5, 64x64 and pc2700. I'm sorry if this has already been asked, but from my searches I couldn't not find a straight answer to this question. Thanks in advance.

The "System Select" RAM is made to be compatible with proprietary systems.

Compaq, HP, ect.

A majority of the "off the shelf" systems have a very limited BIOS when it comes to changing RAM settings.

While the Value Select may work, it would be hit or miss if you have no BIOS options to adjust the timings.
