  1. i currently have 2x250mb DDR 333mhz memory in my laptop. the video card isnt great not to sure on the specs but i have been told by several techs to get a memory upgrade to 1GB which is what im going to do. I am new to upgrading memory so dont know much about it im wondering if i get a 1GB 400mhz chip if it would make compatibility diffence since i have 333mhz now. Also wondering if a DDR2 upgrade is possible for me since i only have DDR right now and is DDR2 really that worth it? thank for your info.

    Welcome to TechSpot

    DDR2 won't work.

    Some laptops are quite picky about memory speeds, you should check which memory modules are supported from manual or from manufacturer's website.

    It's probably two DDR SO-DIMMs, so if you want 1 GB you'll need either one 1 GB module or two 512 MB ones.

    Why did they tell you that you need more RAM, anyhow?
