Laptop RAM suggestions...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi there. I currently have a 1gb stick of Elpida ddr2 667mhz (5-5-5) ram. I want to upgrade this. There's only one slot for ram on this laptop, so will only need the one stick (don't know if that's a common thing for laptops). Is it possible i could run into any compatibility issues getting faster ddr2 ram? or will the fact that the upgrade will still be ddr2 mean i shouldn't see any problems? Also, if there are any other problems anyone can see with idea, do please let me know. Thanks.

Normally, you can put faster RAM in, but post the model of the laptop please, that would help.

Wow, that's a new one, never heard of E-System. I did find a picture of the motherboard and it doesn't look like there's another slot on the opposite side of the motherboard, so I guess you're right about one slot. You rarely see that anymore, except with netbooks. I have seen companies selling a 2GB stick for that machine, so at least you can upgrade some. I honestly would just look for a 2GB stick of PC2 5300 667MHz. Faster RAM won't help you because you can't go into the BIOS and change your settings.
