Kingston ValueRAM Laptop RAM
Kingston 2GB PC5300 (667MHz) DDR2 Laptop ValueRAM (SO DIMM)

hot...would've got it for my laptop, but unfortunately using a 32bit OS, so it's useless having more than 3gb

what about the PC-6400? 2gb for laptops (200pin)...
it's £43.99....any vouchers for that?

cheers

Thanks, I just ordered one for my Dell Mini 10v. I've been waiting for months for RAM like this to drop below £30 and £25.50 is a great price all things considered (exchange rate etc).

dell mini is a netbook... I would expect it to run a PC-6400, 800MHZ RAM, not PC-5400...

code is no longer working

Can this be used in the dell 1546?

I think you're right. The current RAM is 1GB PC2-6400 800MHz.

Would 2GB PC-25300 667MHz be slower than 2GB PC-26400 800MHz? If yes, then I think I'll return it and wait for a better deal on the latter (I think I'm too late to cancel the order before delivery as being processed). I only went for this RAM because it was listed as compatible by Crucial's Memory Scanner.

Your 1gb card will run at the slower speed if you add the 2gb to it yes.

It will not necessarily be slower. This is dependent on the speed of the data channels from the CPU to the Northbridge (bus speed) and if the speed if 533 MHz then 800MHz RAM will make no odds - the maximum speed would still be 533 MHz. There is a useful utility called CPU-Z which will provide information regarding the bus speed of your motherboard (I cannot remember if the information is given as absolute speed or a multiplied speed - which manufacturers inaccurately use to indicate higher speed than it really is). If you can provide readings from CPU Z we will know immediately whether you would benefit from 800 MHz RAM.

CPU Z is available from here cpuid.com/dow…exe

When run go to CPU tab and you will see the bus speed. A reading of around 200 MHz or higher would indicate that you would benefit from 800 MHz RAM.

The Dell Mini 10v only needs 533MHz DDR2 (PC2-4200) but will work with higher speed ram which it will just run at the lower speed so the 667MHz DDR2 (PC2-5300) is fine for the Mini 10v.

Have you upgraded the RAM on yours?

I see what you mean. So it doesn't matter which speed of RAM I put in, … I see what you mean. So it doesn't matter which speed of RAM I put in, 667 or 800, it's only going to run at the slower speed anyway? Have you upgraded the RAM on yours?

The RAM will operate at the rated speed of the RAM or the bus speed of the motherboard whichever is slowest.

The scenarios:
1. Bus speed = 533 Mhz, RAM slot 1 = 800 MHz, RAM slot 2 = 400 MHz. The slowest is 400 MHZ so all data communications between CPU and Northbridge operate at 400 MHz

2. Bus speed = 533 Mhz, RAM slot 1 = 533 MHz, RAM slot 2 = 533 MHz. The slowest is 533 MHZ so all data communications between CPU and Northbridge operate at 533 MHz

3. Bus speed = 800 Mhz, RAM slot 1 = 533 MHz, RAM slot 2 = 533 MHz. The slowest is 533 MHZ so all data communications between CPU and Northbridge operate at 533 MHz

4. Bus speed = 800 Mhz, RAM slot 1 = 800 MHz, RAM slot 2 = 800 MHz. The slowest is 800 MHZ so all data communications between CPU and Northbridge operate at 800 MHz

and so on and so forth...

Im trying to use the save50 code and its not working?

Code doesn't appear to work now. Has it expired?

CODE IS SALE50 not SAVE50 , ordered mine!

OK, looks like I'll keep the RAM and pop it into my mini 10v.

I know, as David Bowie says 'It Ain't Easy'. I've had a look at the video already and it's tricky, but doable. I feel confident after upgrading the RAM in an Acer Aspire One; another big-takeitaparttogetRAMin-job.

HEY, Mr Dell, what's wrong with a rear hatch for netbooks?

I don't know what Dell were playing at either as it's the one thing these need. Surely it can't just be a design error?

Good luck with the upgrade. I'm just not brave enough... and far too clumsy.

Only takes a few minutes to upgrade once you've done a few - I upgraded another 10v last night. One tip is to partially assemble the laptop after you upgrade the ram so you can test that it works - if the memory isn't fully in then you will just get beeps on startup and you don't want to have to take it all apart again!

Is it worth the upgrade on the Dell Mini , ive just got a new one today work it make a vast difference ?

Have some heat OP, ordered one for a friend's Sony Netbook.

Cheers

Installation went without a hitch and my Mini 10v (W7 Professional) now has 2GB RAM

Good buy. Been waiting AGES for it to dip to the 25 quid mark but its always been 35quid +. Snapped my some up for my HP
