Compatible memory

  1. Compatible memory
    I plan on upgrading the ram on an older laptop.
    It comes with IGB DDR2 PC2-4200 533MHz SODIMM, can I add
    IGB DDR2 667MHz SODIMM to the spare slot and will it detect it?
    Thought I'd ask before attempting!

    Hard to say, there is only one way to know, that is to try. I'm assuming you have the modules in question. Otherwise I would suggest buying modules of the same specs to increase chances of compatibility.

    A good outcome as it happens.
