はじめに

If your Lenovo T420 is running slowly, complaining about memory usage or does not boot up correctly, the problem may be related to a faulty memory module. This guide will show you how to replace both memory modules in your system.

Note: If you need to access the factory memory module, the keyboard has to be removed. Keyboard removal is not required for the bottom module.

Guide notes

  • Use of a matched pair of memory modules is recommended. Mixing and matching modules works, but may cause system instability. My mixed pair seems to work, but I've had two blue screens and I suspect this isn't the last time it'll happen (errors are not related to memory, but memory is suspect). If you mix and match modules, run Memtest 86+ for ~8 hours and test for stability.
  • It is important that you do not lose the silver keyboard screw. The RAM door screw also holds the keyboard in, so this isn't the end of the world. However, your keyboard be noticeably loose.

What tool might one use as a pry?

commander - 返信

The plastic pry tool will also work for the bottom RAM/mSATA part. I can usually get it open without the assistance of pry tools.
