Maximum of 256 MB memory. Memory SIMMs must be installed in groups of fours, J10-J13 and J14-J17.

Make sure all SIMMs in a group of four are the same memory size. When installing the groups of four SIMMs, install the SIMMs in descending order beginning with slot J13 and ending with slot J10 or beginning with slot J17 and ending with slot J14.

My 41T had a nice surprise - eight NEC 428000A36FJ-70, IBM P/N 74G1020, FRU 73G3235. 32MB 70 ns P, for a total of 256MB.

Thank God this has only three pins. Key Mode Switch assembly (lock/switch) is 88G2671. Cheap looking ABS plastic, BUT the keys and lock are made by Medeco Security Locks, Inc.

J19 External SCSI Enable

Optional security for SCSI is provided by five jumpers (J19) on the system board. These jumpers (when set to the disabled position) prevent communication through the external SCSI connector.

The default setting of the jumpers from the manufacturer is SCSI connector enabled.

Open Case

Set the key mode switch to the Service position and remove the key from the key mode switch. Remove the three cover screws from the rear panel. Grasp both sides of the cover, and then slide the cover toward the front of the system unit until the cover stops (approx. 0.5" or 12 mm).

Grasp both sides of the cover, and then rotate the rear of the cover upward until the cover is tilted at an approximate 45 degree angle. While keeping the cover tilted at an approx. 45 degree angle, slide the cover forward until the cover clears the front of the system unit, and then remove the cover.
