Hello Everyone, I've got a Sony Vaio VGN-FE11S with 1GB RAM and want to upgrade. The Sony site is fairly helpful and says the following
Memory Type SO-DIMM - 533Mhz (DDR2)
which is helpful enough. I've found something to that specification on Dabs. However when I click to buy RAN from the Sony shop (too expensive), the ram that they try to sell me is the same but is 667mhz.
I therefore have 2 questions...
Can I buy the faster 667mhz and it still work? Can I get any faster than this?
Also the maximum memory is 2GB, and I have 2 slots. Would I be better off buying 2 1GB, or 1 2GB and having a spare slot? It's the same price either way.
...at a certain speed. Sometimes if you put in RAM that's too fast for the system, it will run, but at a slower rate. If Sony say it's ok to use 667 it will probably work fine but you won't notice any speed difference.
I'd advice you to look at Crucial's memory scan tool, which is <almoat> infallible.
