Ok here it goes.
I have a gateway P-6860FX that will only go to 4G with DDR2 667 memory but I found on Newegg that they have DDR2 667 memory in 4G modules. If I ordered two of these 4G modules being as they are also DDR2 667 specs would that imply that now my laptop would be 8G of RAM rather then the 4G as specified by the manufacture?? I am asking this because I also have a Dell E1505 with 4G of RAM in it right now with W7x86sp1 and it shows as 3.5G and runs and works fine and the memory one that is also DDR2 667 specs? How can this be are the manufacture pulling a fast one on the end-users saying they can’t expand the memory but in fact there is a memory that would work?? Could someone explain to me why I (2) 2G modules DDR2 667 in a Dell E1505 would work and why won’t doing the same thing in a Gateway P-6860FX wouldn’t help this power hungry laptop more? I am seriously considering ordering a pair of 4G modules with DDR2 667 specs and trying it on my Gateway just to test to see if it works and then I will test the same RAM in each of my laptop to see if it does work and if it does I will update the RAMs to a larger specs.
