Question about Computers & Internet
I just got a TravelMate 800LCi which I brought to life again after switching some parts. It now runs as it should, but would benefit from more RAM (now 512Mb - I want at least 1Gb).
Acer specs says it has PC2100 DDR2 memory (266MHz). Some tips on the netforums I've visited says it can run with PC2700.
DDR2-memorys don't often comes with these low speeds, these SO-DIMMs are scarce and expensive, so I wonder:
Can faster memorys be mounted in this particular laptop?
(I know that it can't benefit from the faster speed they're designed for, but WILL IT WORK with, let's say - PC5400?)
Probably not. Not in laptops where the northbridge chip is hardwired to run with one ram speed. However, you can try a faster piece of RAM from a friend. Better yet, is to go to Crucial.com or Samsung.com and use their memory configurator to find out for sure.
