Well thank you for the answer. To add a little to my problem here is what the scan at crucial says
Currently installed memory:
Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*
Now what it recommends
1GB, 200-pin SODIMM, DDR2 PC2-5300 memory module
This is what I bought
- Module Size: 1GB
- Package: 200-pin SODIMM
- Feature: DDR2 PC2-5300
- Specs: DDR2 PC2-5300 • CL=5 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR2-667 • 1.8V • 128Meg x 64 •
, the stores have a crappy selection around here.
Believe me if I could find another brand I would have but after 4 stores and this staples being the only one with the right type I gave up and bought it.
