Re: Thinkpad 770 memory problem

I'll try that. It is worth a shot,but the BIOS test doesn't show any errors. One thing does occur to me. The modules I put in were PC133 not PC66. In theory, they should be backward compatible, but maybe they aren't fully. Does anyone have any experience with that sort of thing?

I believe that is a grub error.  Grub doesn't believe there is that
much memory present.

About the only suggestion I have left is to try running memtest.
Perhaps there is perhaps a bad memory dimm in the machine?  Just
guessing but perhaps the memory is present but that it has errors?
