I did and need DDR2 PC2-4200 to upgrade :thumbsup:

oh! if the max is 4200 that your laptop can handle it but the 5300's will only be able to run at 4200.....

also need to make sure whichever u put in they are matching speeds if in pairs

yes you can, but the ram will run at the lowest speed of the 2, pc4200 or pc5300. which ever one is the lower.

According to crucial yours would take PC3200 or PC2700 DDR Ram. So this is not compat.

Youd have to look at the RAM inside. Unless someone knows what comes as standard?

Buy the 5300 (in a pair if that's how your laptop takes it) and you should be ok.

If the built in is 4200 chuck it on ebay/hukd in the trade section

Hi,

I ran a quick scan from Crucial.com and found my laptop has 2 - 256 MB DDR 2700 RAM installed. Also, it gave message that - "Your computer already has got maximum memory installed".

Does that mean I can't upgrade RAM?

Also, is there any problem replacing manufacturer supplied RAM with RAM from a different manufacturer?

I am not that experienced in these matters, can some technocrat help me?
#24
If it says, "Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules."

Does that mean all I have to do is buy 2 of the same RAM and it'll automatically get the best performance? Or do I have to do some configuration also?

Looks like you already have the max memory installed. But do the crucial check again and if you see "Maximum Memory: 512MB" then that means you can't upgrade the RAM
#26
tejas - check to make sure they dont mean you have the maximum amount of sticks installed, your laptop must be really old if the most it can take is 512mb, there should be a bit where it tells you the max you can install.

slash - talking about dual channel, only worth it if your motherboard allows it, basically there is a preformance boost (couldn't tell you how much) when identical pairs are installed so they can run in a dual channel configuration..if your mobo doesn't support then there's no point. (crucial will tell you though in the little questions and answers section if dual channel is available for yours)

Thanks for your reply. I did scan again. Currently installed memory is: 512 MB, but maximum memory capacity is blank (I mean no value have been suggested).

I will email to Crucial technical team and see if they can suggest anything.

Also, this is bit silly thing that my manfacturer HP does not allow me to upgrade RAM.

Laptop is not that old as well, purchased in mid 2005 with 64-bit processor.

Also, this is bit silly thing that my manfacturer HP does not allow me to upgrade RAM.

I googled regarding PC memory and found this site - www.orcalogic.co.uk. They will help to find out RAM as per manufacturer and model number.

For my Laptop, they are suggesting Maximum 2 GB RAM, which costs 50 quids for the one recommended by them.

Link for RAM Recommendation

Can you help me if the Kingston memory deal mentioned here will be compatible or not?

I tried to google regarding PC Memory and found this site which recommends memory based on your manufacturer and model number. ([url]www.orcalogic.co.uk[/url])

http://www.orcalogic.co.uk/asp/prodtype.asp?prodtype=11927&ft=m&st=3 (Link for my model and manufacturer)

As per this, maximum 2 GB RAM can be installed on my computer. The RAM recommended by them is very costly 50 quids.

I am now not sure whether Kingston memory deal here, whether it will be compatible or not?

Can you shed some light.

Thanks for your time.

Maybe you should try and install it first and check if it works, I also have a 2 GHz 6720s and I ordered one of these yesterday. I'm no expert by any means but I think if u check the manual it's relatively easy to open the back and install it. Then maybe u can let us know if it works or not.

A 240-pin DIMM is a desktop stick. Laptop SODIMMs have either 160 (DDR) or 200 (DDR2) pins (IIRC).

mr.velvet is correct.
It sounds like they sent the wrong type - e.g. not what the invoice said.
Most(?) laptops take 'SODIMM' memory rather than 'DIMM'

If Crucial say 'DDR' memory then this offer is for DDR2 - they are different.
DDR is more expensive (it's older - seems they've stopped making it)
Play do 1GB SODIMM for £37 which is the cheapest I've seen.
Different manufacturers shouldn't make a difference so long as you go
with a recognised brand - Kingston is well known.

Hi, looking at the link you provided, you can only use DDR type RAM. This is different from the DDR2 type RAM posted in the OP, so do not buy it because it won't work on your laptop.


The memory Type suitable for your laptop is: 200-Pin PC2700 (333Mhz) DDR SODIMM

An example is this 512MB from Play.com:
http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/931239/Computer-Memory-512MB-PC2700-DDR-333Mhz-200pin-SODIMM/Product.html

It costs £13.49 from an unknown brand and only is 512MB so if you buy two, you will double your laptop RAM. The 1GB RAM cost £45 each so I'm not sure if you want to spend that much to upgrade your laptop.
