[QUOTE=~Jethro~;2612200]I give up, do some reading about chip sets, bios, ect.[/QUOTE]
huh…I don’t get understand a simple question was to ask if it was possible or if anyone has did such a test to see what the result was and to tell me if the laptop did boot or boot but had odd results. I talked about two very different laptop one Dell and another Gateway but you seem to take the notion they both had the same chipset and I did search on the Gateway and it does says 4G limit but what I am saying since you didn’t look carefully was that the Dell manufacture listed the Dell E1505 as only being able to use up to 2G Ram for max expansion but I was able to go to 4G Ram and this was from not knowing about the chipset link you posted was able to put 4G Ram onto the laptop. I did check on the Intel chipset for the Gateway and it did list the chipset max at 4G but the worse that can happen is the memory doesn’t work and I loose some money for the restocking to return and get the proper memory at least then I know I tried something and knew for fact my test did support their Ram limits based on their chipset. What I asked all along was if anyone has gone beyond what the Intel or Laptop manufacture said to see what results occured if they got Ram or no Ram and no boot.
This is what I call tweaking to see if the impossible is possible and if not you will at least know the limits and how to test for experimentation to push the limits of the hardware. Batting down questions and inquires with manufacture specs sheets doesn’t help to improve or help others learn more about what they can do to improve computing performance. Asking for one to be open minded isn’t a hard thing to do but for others to do so sounds like a Everest climb and if you never try it then you won’t at see the fruits of the labor and what you can learn from it.
