Question about Gateway M305CRV Notebook
Posted by Anonymous on
Sound like you have two questions:
1) Why does my new memory not work?
2) Can I upgrade to 2 GB?
For Question #1, my thought is that maybe the new memory does not match up the laptops specifications. According to Gateway's website, "This notebook has two 200-pin industry standard DDR-SODIMM sockets that can accept 266 MHz DDR RAM memory module." Is the new memory 266 MHz? If not, that could be your problem and you should get the appropriate type of memory.
If the memory you purchased is 266 MHz, you probably have defective hardware and should seek a refund or replacement.
As for Question #2, you can try it but you may waste your money. If the manufacturer says the max memory allowed is 1 GB, it probably is true. I would only try it if you could get free, cheap or borrowed memory.
