You cant add DDR3 because the motherboard will not support it.

I would look at buying some standard PC133 SDRAM. Its really cheap online on ebay or amazon.

What is the process to add additional memory to my 4GB laptop?


You will need to follow these steps:
1. Determine which type of memory your laptop uses (DDR,DDR2,DDR3)
2. Determine how much memory you would like to add
3. Purchase the memory
4. Install. The memory is typically installed in the underside of your laptop. You will have to take the bottom off, take out the old memory, and install the new one

Having problems upgrading my GatewayDX4840-11e to 32GB of memory.


Memory Type: DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-12800, DDR3 PC3-8500, DDR3 PC3-14900, DDR3 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 32GB
Slots: 4
Each memory slot can hold DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-12800, DDR3 PC3-8500, DDR3 PC3-14900 with a maximum of 16GB kit (8GBx2) per slot.*
*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.

Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS.

  • Supports Dual channel memory architecture
  • Supported speeds
    • PC3-10600 @ 1333 MHz*
    • PC3-8500 @ 1066 MHz
      *DDR3-1333 modules run at 1066 MHz if three or more modules are installed.
  • Non-ECC memory only, unbuffered
  • Supports up to 16 GB on 64-bit PCs (DIMMs run at DDR3-1066)
  • Supports up to 4 GB on 32-bit PCs

This motherboard uses DDR3-SDRAM, ECC and non-ECC, unbuffered, PC3-10600(1333mhz) or PC3-8500(1066mhz), dual channel architecture (two sticks at a time), and a max memory of 8Gs.
This are the specs for your ram: 4GB 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC
(Kit of 2) Intel XMP HyperX = DDR3-1600
Default = DDR3-1333 CL9-9-9-27
CL9-9-9 1.65V
1.5V

In other words, Yes! This should work just fine. The ram will just run at its default speed of 1333mhz.

Want to add ddr3 memory to my p5qc board


Hello
The motherboard supports DDR3 1333/1066/800 MHz or DDR2 memory 1066/800/667 MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest operation system, 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications. The dual-channel DDR3/DDR2 architecture doubles the bandwidth of your system memory to boost system performance, eliminating bottlenecks with peak bandwidths of up to 19.2 GB/s.
DDR2 1066MHz DIMMs work only on the black slots for one DIMM per channel
2 x DIMM, Max. 8 GB, DDR3 1333/1066/800 Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory 4 x DIMM, max. 16GB, DDR2 1066 / 800 / 667 MHz, Non-ECC, Un-buffered memory Dual channel memory architecture When installing total memory of 4GB capacity or more, Windows® 32-bit operation system may only recognize less than 3GB. Hence, a total installed memory of less than 3GB is recommended DDR2 1066MHz DIMMs work only on the black slots for one DIMM per channel. Ensure to install the DDR2 1066MHz DIMMs ONLY on the BLACK slots! Refer to www.asus.com or this user manual for the Memory QVL(Qualified Vendors Lists). When installing total memory of 4GB capacity or more, Windows® 32-bit operation system may only recognize less than 3GB. Hence, a total installed memory of less than 3GB is recommended.
Hope this helps
