Is it okay to use RDRAM PC 800 45 for 40?

  1. I'm not sure if this is the right forum but I hope I can explain this correctly.

    I have a Gateway 700S (2002) with an Intel Petnitum 4, 2260 MHz, 133 MHz external bus, Bios- Intel Corp. MV85010A 15.0049.P07.2024171416
    RDRAM PC 800 40 256MB.

    I bought a 1 GB RDRAM (2 512 sticks) but did not realize it was for PC800-45. I tried to install it but when I boot up it tells me to take out the memory and make sure it is 40. Is there anyway I can still use this? I bought it on Ebay and can't return it. Any suggestions would be helpful...please ...thanks!! !

    Sorry, but most likely no.

    There may be another member that may say other wise, but I would say no.

    Hello! Welcome to TechSpot!

    I believe CrossFire851 is right. You might be able to re-sale it on craigslist.
