[quote=~Jethro~;2182863]Having first hand knowledge of this laptop my first post is correct, it will not support 1x512 nor will it support anything but pc 100 memory. pc 133 will not work it will not be downclocked.
0 MB on-board memory expandable to 512 MB
Two SO-DIMM slots
SO-DIMM sockets accept 8-, 16-, 32-, 64-, 128-, and 256-MB SDRAM modules in any combination.
Use only PC100 memory modules.
Note: If PC133 memory is used, windows protection errors will occur.[/quote]
OK, I feel you are offeded somehow but I don’t see why because I never said anything about your post, some or all of it might be correct, hence why I advised to check for the systemboard controller for a truley accurate description of what the systemboard can read up to. I myself have had such a problem many a time with every laptop I owned, be it IMB or Dell, the manuals always stated the max available memory to be used lesser than what the chipset can actually see. Heck, sometimes they wouldn’t even give important details such as the board only being able to read single sided vs double sided ram mods but thats an altogrther diff story.
