I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hi. I have an Intel Turbo Memory 2GB (FRU 43Y6523).Can I use this in my X100e with MV-40 CPU?Which drivers do I have to use? 

Answer:Intel Turbo Memory 2GB (FRU 43Y6523) in x100e possible?

Hi fospa ,
 
  Turbo memory only works for earlier version of Intel Chipset, x100e uses AMD chipset so not compatable.
 
What are the system requirements? http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/itm/sb/CS-026009.htm

It goes like this . when I first receive my t61 there was a vista installation and turbo me worked. I downgraded to XP and then I didn't use turbomem. about half a year ago I tried running windows 7 beta and one of the turbo memory drivers worked but didn't operate the Readyboost or ready drive but only I was able to see the IMD-0 in the disk management so I mounted the IMD as a drive and run manually the ready boost on that drive.   I installed a newer version of windows 7 (Build 7600) and I tried that newer turbo mem drivers and the older drivers nothing works ! When I install the driver my comp crashed because ianvstor.  That happens everytime IM trying to install the driver. I tried installing vista SP2 and the same thing happens.  I think my turbo mem chip is burned or something. I also tried to replace hard drives and it didn't works.it's really annoying that I have a component on the computer which I payed for it and it doesn't work.i really hope this forum can help me to solve the problem. i was going throw all the posts in google about turbo mem and none of them have my problem which I can't even install the driver.

Hi, I am having trouble installing the Intel Turbo Memory Driver. When starting the setup (after extracting), I get an error message saying that my system does not meet the minimum requirements. Is that more likely a software (missing drivers) or a hardware issue (my T400 does not support it)?Looking through the package information, I found that I need to find a IDE ATA/ATAPI controller in the device manager, but I can't find it. Sorry if this is a stupid question, I've looked through a couple of threads and couldn't find anything. I have to add, I am running Windows 7 Pro. I would be very happy to get some support here. Thank you in advance for your help!

Answer:T400: unable to install Intel Turbo Memory Driver

I need to ask a basic question. Does your system have a turbo memory card installed? It is only an option on the T400. Many systems don't have the card. If you have the card, you would be getting "found new hardware" messages at every boot. If I were ordering a system, I wouldn't go out of my way to get the feature. I never found a noticable improvement.

I have a T500 (2081-CTO) with Vista Business 64 SP1 and a 2GB Intel Turbo Memory module.  7200RPM Hitachi Drive HTS722016K9SA00. As delivered with driver version 1.6, the Intel Turbo Memory Console showed both ReadyBoost and ReadyDrive checkboxes checkmarked (enabled). Upon driver upgrade to 1.7.0.1029 (Via ThinkPad Update), the ReadyDrive checkbox is no longer checkmarked.  ReadyBoost remains checked. I am able to manually add a checkmark, after which the utility tells me I need to immediately re-boot.  I do so, but, once re-booted, a check of the Console once again shows that ReadyDrive is NOT enabled. Any ideas? Possibly related:  The Hitachi hard drive spec sheet does not specify an SSD-like cache.  My understanding is the the drive comes with an 8MB cache, as most drives do.  However,the Device Manager properties tab for the drive shows a tab called NV Cache, which states that "This disk has 396MB of non-volatile cache and can help improve system performance.  If using this disk as a Hybrid Hard Disk is enabled..." Well, I used gpedit.msc to make sure all the NV Cache policies are DISABLED. (Incredibly, the setting of DISABLED is supposed to ensure that the use of these technologies is actually ENABLED.  Thank you, Microsoft). Where does this value of 396MB of cache come from?  Is that from the Intel Turbo Memory? I suspect the '396MB' value is actually hard-coded text in the dialog box. ... Read more

I read somewhere that using an SD/SDHC card in the built-in card reader of the X100e will leave so much of the card sticking out that it's inadvisable to leave a card in when you slip the laptop into a bag.
Is there any type of card that would be flush with the outside of the machine?  Perhaps a memory stick micro?
 
Moderator edit: Removed accidental duplication.

Answer:X100e: Any memory card that won't protrude?

Does anyone at least know what sorts of memory cards will fit into the slot and be recognized by the controller?  I just can't find documentation anywhere, on the Lenovo site, Realtek's site, or in reviews.  I just don't want to spend money, for instance on a memory stick micro that I'd never use otherwise, only to find out it won't work or will stick out too much.   I am able to take a measurement of how much an SDHC card will slide into the laptop, by measuring the amount left sticking out; but looking inside the slot, there is a narrower set of connections that go deeper, increasing the chance that some other memory format might be flush or nearly flush when fully inserted.

Hello everyone, I am a new user to this forum and searched the topics but could not find the answer. I recently purchased a 100e with 1GB memory.  I have purchased 4GB of memory to upgrade the laptop.  I have googled how to install the memory, but, have not found the answer (but, did find this forum!). I have turned the laptop off, removed the battery, removed the screws and back cover.  But, when I try to insert the new memory into the slot, it is very tight and does not seem to fit.  I do not want to force it.  FYI, I have purchased the G.Skill PC2-6400 SO-DIMM which I was told is the right memory for this laptop. Can someone please help or point me to a video on how to install the memory? Thanks in advance!

My x100e died this morning  Was using it and shut the lid to go answer the door. When i came back it was off instead of suspended, and has never powered up since.(doesn't even make it to the BIOS screen, just sits there with the screen off cycling the CPU fan on and off) Have tried removing everything removeable (battery/RAM/wifi card/BT card and the HDD) and pulled and replaced the BIOS battery, but nothing seems to work.Is there anything else to try that i've forgotten? Or is it just a failed motherboard like i suspect? Which brings me onto my next question:I loved my X100e to bits, so the X121e is pretty much the only laptop i can replace it with!The Lenovo shop is a big ripoff with RAM upgrades however, so i'll be sticking with the minimum amount and buying my own to replace it.What i want to know is will the laptop be able to use the extra speed of 1600mhz RAM over the 1333mhz RAM it's supplied with? (as it's only approx a pound or two extra to buy 1600mhz RAM over the slower stuff) 

Answer:X100e dead? Also memory speed question for a X121e

Hello,
 
You can install faster memory into an X120e and it will down-clock to the correct speed, so I would imagine it would be the same for an X121e.  Just in case, though, it would be a good idea to purchase the memory from a company which has a liberal return policy.

This image shows possibilities of Intel 965M chipset.You have an ability to insert Turbo Memory in mini-PCIe slot, but it doesn't mean that it must be installed.Tests show that turbo memory is only marketing trick - more RAM is much more effective.I'd not advise Turbo Memory... Imho. Anyway, if you want to - you have to obtain proper one. All devices are checked in Ideapads for being Lenovo-certified, so better for you to call Lenovo and ask which Turbo memory module you can get from Lenovo.

I am about to purchase a new x61t as my x41 is getting on in years. I have read a lot of negative stuff about turbo memory. Some say there is little performance boost, and some report scary BSOD events and odd systm failures. Anyone out there got anything to say about it's merits?Thanks

Answer:Turbo memory should I get it?

I have turbo memory in my X61T and I believe my machine does run a little faster with it since I only have 2 gigs of ram.  I mainly see a difference in my boot time when it is on or off.  If you have more ram the effects of turbo memory seems to go down is what I understand from other posts.  The problems from turbo memory seem to have been fixed and I have not had a problem with it for over 8 months.  It does seem like a good choice just that I wish they had bigger sizes of memory like four gigs instead of one for it as it may have helped more?

Hi darrix, welcome to the forum, if you go to this site and enter the type and model number of the X61t you have ordered, it should tell you if it has turbo memory.The type and model number consists of 4 numbers plus 3 letters or numbers e.g. 7767-B8U.

I am upgrading my T61 to have an SSD (again) - I have turbo memory installed, and have read some of the posts on SSD + turbo memory but nothing seems to be to certain. I am mostly concerned that keeping the turbo memory and having a recent SSD will actually slow down the IO.  If the turbo-memory is caching it then from a SSD drive that is likely faster than the cache - would that slow things down?  Or would it add unnecessary complexity (which, in turn, could slow things down)? ThanksWill

Turbo memory is completely redundant when your harddrive is solid state. I think the turbo mem might actually be faster then your ssd, but the problem is it takes time for the turbo memory software to decide what should be cached there and more time to copy the files, and added processes running with little or no benefit, so the end result is worse performance. Just remove the turbo memory when you install the SSD, or it can be disabled by using a utility that lenovo has available.

Hi, I've installed Vista 64-bit on an X100e and everything installed well with the exception of the display driver which is the HD 3200. Does not really matter which driver I used, from Lenovo or ATI website (latest 10.5), it just will not use the correct driver even if the driver installation went well. I understand that Vista is not part of the official supported OS but on this forum there are instances that Vista is running well on an X100e. I've updated the BIOS to 1.23-1.19 but no go as well. Thanks for your time.

It appears that Lenovo techs are clueless (surprise surprise) when it comes to Intel's Turbo memory.  I've had my T400 with Win7 64bit Ultimate and I can see Intel's Storage Matrix  recognizing the 2GB turbo memory. My question is, how do applications know on using this module? I heard that you must install Intel's Turbo memory User Pinning application which allows you to assign specific apps to the turbo memory. I don't see the "User Pinning application" on my laptop. When I tried downloading it, I installed it using the -UP switch and then the User Pinning icon appears on my desktop, but it will not open.  Some kind of error stating unable to find Turbo memory.  Any advise would be greatly appreciated!

Intel Turbo Memory is highly not recommended, since it provides unnoticeable improvement in speed if you got lot of ram, in addition it can cause driver conflict under Vista.  You can install it in one of the occupied mini PCI-e slot, but remember you have to get the Lenovo version, other versions may cause errors.

Question: Intel Turbo Memory

I have a X200 Tablet, 7450 ERG. I am about to upgrade the SSD from the standard 64GB Samsung MLC disk, to an Intel X-25 G2 160GB disk. I have also installed 4GB of RAM inside the computer purchased from Lenovo, but I am looking for a way to improve speed further. The graphical card would have been a pleasure to change, sacrifice some battery time, but I understand this is not possible unfortunatly. However, to increase the speed, I have seen that Intel advertises for their Intel Turbo Memory. Will I be able to benefit from such an upgrade taken the SSD driver and 4GB og RAM of memory installed already, or is Intel Turbo Memory typically made for slower HDD drives? What Intel Turbo Memory to get (preferably as large in GB and speed as possible), and what is the FRU / CRU number so I can find it on IBM / Lenovo's homepage for purchase? Thank you in advance for comments and advices! Kind regards.

Answer:Intel Turbo Memory

Hi oab! I don't know about the turbo memory. But what improved my tablet was to change to the X-25 G2 SSD, and it will be even quicker when they get the fix on the new ssd firmware.I bought the tablet with Vista, and have just upgraded to Windows 7. It became a new machine. It is quicker, have better text recognition (even in Norwegian), and much more stabile.If you bought the machine after June 26, 2009, you can order the Enhanced Experience Win 7 from Lenovo for free. They claimed that the boot time can improve up to 57%. If you need more than that, I think you bought the wrong machine. Good luck! Axel

Hi all.  I have a T61 with Turbo Memory.  I recently optimized my T61 for recording audio.  One of the things I did was to run msconfig, click on the "Startup" tab, then click on the "Disable All" button.  Next I clicked on the "Services" tab, checked the "Hide all Microsoft services" button, then clicked on the "Disable All" button.  I noticed after I was done with my recording and booted up again, it was taking a minute or 2 longer to get to the "home" screen where I can see all the icons for my programs on my desktop. I ran msconfig again, and noticed after clicking the "Startup" tab that "Intel(R) Flash Cache Logic Chip" was unchecked, so I checked that, hoping it would decrease my boot time, but it didn't make any difference.  Is there anything else I need to check under the Startup or Services tab when running msconfig to get my Turbo Memory working again, or am I mistaken in thinking disabling all these items would turn my Turbo Memory off? In case you are interested, below is a link to the Optimizing Vista for Audio article. http://www.sweetwater.com/sweetcare/ts/detail.php?Index=31969&keyword=vista Thank you and best regards,Bill

Hi, I recently bought a W500 and with it bought an OEM version of Vista Ultimate 64 bit. As a result I had to install all drivers and the Lenovo tools I wanted to have myself since a pre-load DVD set wasn't available yet and I don't like all of the software that usually comes with preinstalled computers. To avoid problems I first installed the Intel Chipset drivers followed by the latest Turbo Memory drivers from the Intel website. (Before doing so I also tried the drivers offered by Lenovo with the same result as below after which I restored a HDD image to ensure that no traces of older drivers were left due to the BSOD reports I read about related to the Turbo Memory drivers.). After this installed the rest of the software/drivers. By default ReadyBoost seems to be enabled. But I can't find a way to enable the ReadyDrive option, which basically is the only thing about Turbo Memory which I care about. Initially I ignored the checkboxes as described in a lot of forums posts all over the internet but after 20 reboots or so during the day, some leaving Windows idle for 10-15 minutes ReadyDrive still hadn't enabled itself. I tried checking the ReadyDrive checkbox in the Intel Turbo Memory console but after 10 additional reboots or so it didn't activate either. After each reboot the checkbox was "not-checked". I recall that when using the original HDD pre-load  for a day that ReadyDrive did activate itself.

Three questions really... Is there a significant difference in performance between the 1.6 GHz and 1.8 GHz processors? If so, how does this affect power consumption/heat generation. What is the benefit of the turbo memory hd cache and does it interact poorly with vista? Does a n-network comopatible card like the Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN have significantly lower power consumption than the atheros card from thinkpad? (I read this on some other forum) I would otherwise decide that I don't really need the n-network compatibility because so few such networks exist.

Answer:1.6 GHz vs. 1.8 GHz; benefit of turbo memory?; a/b/g/n vs a/b/g

The speed difference is minimal between the two processor of the same generation, i.e. Core Duo or Core 2 Duo. Benefit of turbo memory is only realised when you don't have much ram for Vista, i.e. 1 gig or something. If you install 3 gig of ram (pretty cheap right now) the speed gain is minimal with Turbo memory is minimal, while your 3 gig can still work under XP not so for the Intel turbo memory. You can also get half of the benefit of Intel turbo memory by using the Vista's Windows Readyboost feature, obtainable using a fast SD card or USB memory stick. The wireless cards with N capability has double the speed of g version, if you do lot of wireless large file sharing then obviously it is useful, but if you just use it to surf the net then i think 54 mbps is fast enough.

So, my rarely used x100e that I got in May has been freezing up on occasion, with no way to stop it but to restart and no way to predict when. As you can probably guess, this is annoying, but never more so than during update installation. I was installing the latest camera driver update when it froze and I had to restart. This happened a couple more times until I deferred installation, and then it installed. But during installation, a message came up saying "No camera detected, please insert USB camera" and now my camera doesn't work at all. It's listed in Device Manager, but not detected by any programs, websites, etc. The solution I can think of is to reinstall the driver, but I'm not sure if the best way to do that is through Device Manager (uninstall driver button and then have windows check for one [this is Windows 7 Professional by the way]) or somehow uninstall it from one of Lenovo's proprietary ThinkVantage or whatever programs.

Don't bother if you have 2GB installed already as regular ram. You will not notice an appreciable difference.

Readyboost uses memory other than RAM to increase system speed. It's mainly for low memory situations. Say 1GB or less will notice an improvement.

Hello folks, I'm interested in upgrading my Lenovo T400 to have as much RAM memory as possible and affordable. I work with Genomics / bioinformatics and I have to manipulate huge data matrix (*.TXT with text and numbers up to 1gb of size) usually using SAS and JMP. Therefore, having RAM memory is essential to me and I have the following questions: 1) I didn't buy my computer with Intel memory card. Can I still buy one and install? Would a 4gb one make a difference to work faster? 2) Is it possible to buy more than 4 gb of memory (total), or the price is too expensive. 3) Considering I upgrade to 4 gb of memory (2 x 2gb) and Intel memory card of 4gb, will I have to change the operational system to 64 bit? How better would this system be to manage big files? Any help will be appreciated! Thanks, Leandro

Answer:More than 4gb of RAM on T400 plus Intel Turbo Memory

1) I assume you talk about the turbo memory? In that case the answer is yes you can buy the 4gb turbo memory and it's not that expensive, but i don't think you will notice much difference. I would rather buy more memory. I read that several people had issues because of instability with the turbo memory, but i had no such issues. Compared to my previous W500 which is almost identical to my current W500 except from the turbo memory and a CPU that is a bit faster i cannot say that i notice a difference with or without the turbo memory. 2) You can buy and install 2x4gb, but it's still pretty expensive. If you look at the price from Kingston i think the price is about 10 times higher for a 4gb module compared to the 2gb module. I think there are others that is pretty much cheaper then Kingston, but still pretty expensive. I do believe Micron is much cheaper then Kingston. 3) I'm not familiar with the applications you use and how you use the computer, but using 32bits OS you will not be able to use more then max 3gb of ram. If you have switchable graphics enabled it's only 2.5gb using 32bit Vista. If you disable the switchable graphics and use the ATI video adapter you should get 3gb. With a 64bit OS you should get 4gb of ram in either case. I don't think 64bit Vista will be able to handle big files any better except for the fact that you have more physical ram available. So unless you need more then 3gb or ram (or 2.5 using switchable graphics) the 32bit Vista should han... Read more

Hi All, I've just come across Intel Turbo Memory (ITM) technology for GM965 Express chipset that my X61s is equipped with. Could anyone using it in their X61s, especially equipped with an SSD, please tell me if your ITM card makes any difference at all? Also are 4GB ones supported by X61s running Windows 8.1? (I've found ITM drivers for W7x64 despite ITM page at Intel website says only for Windows Vista) My X61s has Intel X25-M inside, hence wondering if the ITM technology is fast enough to compete with the SSD.  Many thanks in advance!

Answer:Intel Turbo Memory in X61s

Intel quit pushing Turbo Memory. I ran tests on several machines and never found any significant improvement. My suggestion is to get the SSD and throw away the turbo memory card.

Would a product like this http://supertalent.com/products/ssd_detail.php?type=Half%20mini%20PCIe not be an adaquate substitute for the Intel option?  2GB vs. 32GB?  $50 vs. $58? I guess what it might come down to is MLC or NAND based chips.  MLC has a 10,000 cycle life span while NAND and the more expensive SLC have a 100,000 cycle life. I see that the supertalent claims to be for the Dell Mini 9 but is this not the same min-PCIe socket?

Hi All,Hope you can help- I have a R61i, 14.1, 1.66 core 2 duo, 2 gigs RAM, intel ABG, model 7732-CTO.  I found the intel turbo memory chip on amazon and ordered it, hoping to give my system a slight speed boost.  I opened up my Thinkpad and found only one PCI express slot, as far as I can tell, already filled with the wireless card.  Is there another location for it? Am I missing something? It looks like I am out of luck unless I am just not seeing the slot for it.  Any help is appreciated.

Answer:Can I install intel turbo memory?

Did you remove any other cover on the bottom of your laptop? if so, then the memory slots are probably located under the keyboard for you're model.So, take out the screws on the bottom that show a small keyboard picture left to them, and carefully remove the keyboard. You should then beable to locate the memory slots.

Hello, I've got my x200 being shipped out, and I'm thinking about getting turbo memory, and have a few questions for y'all First, does anyone know if I need the full or a half size pci module? Second, I've read about some of the problems with the early drivers and dashboard and whatnot, and would like to know from people who run the turbo memory if it were better to get the 2GB module, and just let Vista take care of the management, or to get the 4GB module, and pin things myself... or if the 4GB module can be managed by Vista yet, like the 2GB can. Thanks! -Mason

Answer:X200 and Intel's Turbo Memory

Save yourself money and hassle. Just buy a 2GB SD card for <$10.  You will get almost the exact same effect of TurboMemory at a fraction of the cost. Alternatively, you would be far better served to just max out your RAM.  DDR3 prices have fallen considerably and you can get a 2GB module for <$50 now.

Answer:CANNOT Enable TURBO MEMORY For T400

The screenshot shows the option to enable the TurboMem is blanked off. Have you tried starting the application as administrator. You then might have the option available. Could also check what is driver version of the application. You can check that by clicking "Help" tab followed by "About" in the Turbo Memory Console. Intel has released new driver ver 1.7. Driver ver (1.7.0.1029). I upgraded it from the Intel site, a few days ago, and it seems to work better than the previous driver. The drivers available with Lenovo are old.

I'm still in a mess trying to get my X200T, running Windows 7 64-bit, working as I want to after failure of some sectors on the HD .I copied onto a hybrid drive, which lasted a week. I am now on the warranty replacement.  The machine has a Turbo memory module installed and this is activated in the W7 image that I have running. I want to use this slightly broken (I think) image because there seems no way to repair the Lenovo pre-activated update version W7 using a standard Win7 installation disk. The hybrid drive is part SSD, and the Lenovo site advises not using turbo memory with an SSD, so I have uninstalled the turbo memory via Control Panel and uninstalled the driver in Device Manager. Now on startup I get a message that the PCI Memory Controller needs a driver. Is the only way around this to physically remove the Intel memory card?  MY plan is to try to gradually bring the machine back to health, taking images (using the Windows application as Rescue and Recovery can't be installed) as each stage comes good.

Answer:X200T turbo memory removal

When running windows 7 64-bit, I always suggest that people remove the turbo memory. As far as I can tell, it doesn't do anything under 64-bit. It is fairly easy to remove. If you look at the manual, the section on removing the keyboard shows you doing something with the hinge. That is a mistake.

Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:Intel Turbo Memory on T61 14.1 wide

welcome to the forum! given what you said in your cross-post (which i moved out of sight, btw), you already have an intel WWAN card installed.   the T61 only allows a WWAN card or a turbo memory card in that slot.   unfortunately, both cannot be installed in your system simultaneously. with that said, i suggest searching for posts on turbo memory.   while beneficial in some instances, it doesn't seem to net the positive results many expected.   my personal opinion is that you would be better off adding more system memory for the price.   generally speaking, 3GB is ideal for 32-bit vista and 4GB is ideal for 64-bit vista.

I am running out of disk space on my t400 with Intel Turbo Memory and a 160gb hard drive. Is it possible to replace the hard drive with a larger capacity drive? When you order a T400 with a hard drive larger than 160gb the option to order the turbo disappears. As far as I can find all the hard drives are all the same dimensions.

Answer:T400 and Intel Turbo Memory

Yeah, you can upgrade up to a 500GB HDD if you need the extra space, it wont have any impact on turbo memory. The turbo memory option only dissappears with the addition of SSD's since I presume its going to hurt rathr than improve performace given the benefits of running a SSD.

Has anyone added the Intel Turbo Memory half height mini pc card (4GB) to their W500?  Can you just plug it in and install latest drivers, or are additional things needed?    Does it help?  Does user-pinning work? 

Answer:Intel Turbo Memory and W500

I have the 2 GB Turbo Memory card that shipped with my W500 (model 4062-27U).  It seems to work just fine, when you install the driver for it, a little application from Intel appears that allows you to turn it on or off.  The application notes state that the "user pinning" function is not supported in the latest (Vista) release - presumably this is because the driver is smart enough to figure out what to keep ready in the memory stash on the card and what to discards.I have no idea if this little card makes the computer work better or not, all I can say is that I have never encountered any problems with it.  I use Vista Business 32 as my OS.

Answer:Intel Turbo Memory on T500

If you are using the default installation your Turbo Memory should already be in use. You can turn it off or change what it is used for in the utility you should find in the Programs menu (as I am not typing this on my T500 I am not sure under what name it is, should be something like Intel Turbo Memory). But you probably don't need to change any of the settings. By default it should be set to use both ReadyDrive and ReadyBoost. I have it left on this setting. Many people argue if it has any use at all - I think it does become useful to speed up things.

I've just taken delivery of a T400 Win7 64bit and am trying to find my way around it.  I bought the machine with turbo memory but am puzzled as to whether or not this is actually working.  There seems to be a paucity of information on this. I ran the test in the ThinkVantage Toolbox, which informed me that a drive named IMD-0 was ReadyBoost Capable and Enabled, but said nothing else. In the Disk Management Console, I see the HDD as Disk 0, and another drive Disk 1 with 1.37GB, no drive letter, no name, no file system,  and 100% free space.  Is this the turbo memory flash drive?  And if so, why does it show 100% free space?  Right-clicking on this drive has all menu options greyed out, apart from Delete and Help. Please could someone direct me to some information on this - is it enabled and working, or is there a switch I have to switch on to get this working? One final thing - there's a 1.17GB partition on the main HDD named SYSTEM_DRV.  What exactly is this?Many thanks for any help and info.

Answer:T400 turbo memory question

given your description, it should be working. Even intel doesnt know how to check if their own product is working or not. they havea  readyboost menu in the programs thingy, and that will have checkboxes. they say that if those are checked, its working, but dont uncheck them, as it will mess up the settings and might or might not disable or re-enable properly. (Dont ask me, thats what Intel said...) The only way i found out that it was workign was by physically removing it from my unit. it had actually caused my system to slow down, as i have a super quick intel ssd in my laptop. cant answer your 2nd question.
