My old IBM A22P's motherboard finally blew out after about 8 or 9 years and I found this old IBM R30 Laying around. The only problem with the R30 is that it is incredible slow. So what I have done is I have removed the RAM from my old A22P (512MB) And removed the R30's RAM (256MB) And tried to put the 512MB of RAM in it. It seems to work at first, but when ever I start the R30 up, it sounds like its booting up for about 2-3 seconds than shuts down. Any suggestions?

NOTE: It is two ram chips combine BOTH to make the 512 and the 256
ADDITIONAL NOTE: The 512MB RAM chips are Kingstons
If I am helping you and I do not respond within 24 hours, please send me a PM. :)

I usually go directly to http://www.crucial.com and let it scan the computer. It will tell you whether that 512 stick is compatible.

There are a couple of different A22P's listed, so you also need the model number in order to get the correct info. The one I looked at said it could not hold more than a 256MB chip, so I must have been looking at thwe wrong one.

Good luck.
