thx

Get the right RAM and then follow manual for your laptop. Name the model and I'm sure me or someone else will bring up an online manual.

Think of RAM as your desk. Theres only so many files you can have open on your desk before you run out and have to store some in the filing cabinet. Obviously the quickest access of files will be from your desk (RAM) and slower access from your filing cabinet (hard disk). The speed of RAM refers to how quickly the RAM runs.

For Windows XP 1-2GB is recommended and for Vista 2-4GB is recommended. That quite a wide range for both, because it depends on what you use your laptop/PC for.

Its realy easy, at the bottom of your laptop will be a hatch secured with 2 very small phillip head screws. Nip down to poundland and get a small screw set . Undo the screws remove the memory that is there remembering which way it fits and install the same in the same way.

Its plug and play, i think :whistling:

No more slow laptop for me!

Excelent price! The faster PC6400 will be better if your laptop supports it, otherwise, for the same price, it will still run at the lower speeds for the same price. :thumbsup:

i paid £23 for 2gb of this few weeks ago! gutted!

The NC10 only has 1 slot and that already has a 1GB stick in it so you will have to get a single 2GB stick if you want to upgrade it.

Great Deal! Many thanks. Ordered.

can i use this on my hp nc4400 laptop
can i just have 1 2GB instead of 2 1GB ones?
pls guide

I've got to say - from previous experience I am reluctant to believe that all memory is equal.
I have used other PNY products and have since steered away
For memory I have always used Crucial because they are reliable, have a lifetime guarantee, and the companies customer service is second to few.
Your find is quite cheap but then again, so is the memory at Aria

As I said, all memory in my opinion is not equal and unstable memory just causes 'unexplained' system crashes.
The choice is yours.

It 'should' be fine. I think you can use a single or 2x modules and the maximum you can fit is 4Gb (total) although with a 32bit operating system your machine cannot access more than about 3.5Gb (if you want to read about this, Google it or look at Crucial's FAQ)
If you use [url]www.Crucial.com[/url] website, you can either enter your laptop details, or allow it to scan your machine and it will tell you what you need.

cambb;3522622

No
You only have one slot. The max you can use is a *single* 2Gb stick, and you ideally need PC2-6400

thanks ordered,,, heat n rep!!!

If this is the thread for laptop/memory upgrades maybe i can get some help here too.

Currently got a Toshiba Satellite Pro L20. According to the crucial website scan i did it says:

"Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-4200,DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*"

Then it reccomends this memory for the max. upgrade.

Anybody suggest any cheaper places for this?

gone for this, thanks and heat

Yes this deal will work on you system it will just run slower at 533MHz and not the full 667MHz.

Hi, my laptop takes 667mhz speed ram. My question is: would buying the faster ram (800mhz) and having it downclocked (automatically) to 667mhz make it more stable than the 667mhz ram at stock speed? I hope my queston is clear I ask as I assume logically that something would be more reliable when it is working less hard than its max. capacity. I also ask as someone mentioned PNY ram being unstable. It's probably nonsense though.

Cheers,

Houldey

Cold from me.

Problem is, although it's a good deal for two 1GB modules, two 1GB modules isn't a very useful thing within the laptop context where you usually only get one or two slots. Since one or both of these slots will come pre-populated, you have to turf out your existing memory. You may even need to get rid of an existing 1GB module, making this a very wasteful purchase.

You're much better, in my opinion, spending another £5 or so and getting a single 2GB module, which you can install alongside your existing RAM. This'd give you more RAM to use now, and in the future, it'd make upgrading to 4GB (which is the minimum I'd use with Vista) much cheaper. Small modules, when you're limited by the number of modules you can install, are always a bad thing.

Your logic does ring a little truth. Back in the time manufactures used to aim for a speed standard with the 'range' they were aiming for and the ones that didn't hit the required standards was sold as the slower speed ram.

As far as I'm aware this is no longer the case. They manufacture to what is required.

There were suggestions some time ago that PNY were using substandard memory that other companies had rejected. There don't seem to be any issues now.

So the choice is yours. I'd say it wont make any difference. The only thing that may push you to using the faster option if you in the near future with to use it in a faster machine.

will this work with a HP - Compaq Notebook nc6400 please?

GAVINLEWISHUKD;3525172

Yes sorry this play deal.



Excellent, ordered for me then. Main aim for upgrading my memory is for games such as Football Manager which my 512 ram can't quite hack it. Sorry for all the questions, but would the lower speeds affect general day to day use (web browsing, word processing etc.) and use for games like FM?

And if i did have problems can i pop my 512 back in?

No it will be slower than the RAM maximum speed not your system. The RAM will run at the same speed as your 512mb RAM. It just has the ability to run faster in a system that can take the higher speed RAM.

Indeed your system supports 667MHz DDR2.

Not worth getting then if what you're saying i don't see the benefits?

Might be being a bit of a mong and missing what you're saying here.

if u only install one module in at 2gb and keep one module with less ram the system will only run at the ram with the less memory!!!
