    Hi all, I'm considering upgrading RAM on my *SATELLITE A100-667* (PSAARE-02700DIT). Does anyone knows the maximum amount of ram I can install? Which clock is supported? (553, 667...)

    And what about CPU? The notebook comes with an Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T5500 @ 1,66 GHz over Intel i945PM chipset.

    Thank you in advance for any information.

    P.

    Hi

    I think you should also check your user manual regarding RAM upgrades. As far as I know you can upgrade your notebook to 4GB RAM. Therefore you can use DDR2-533 modules. You buy it from an authorized service provider or Kingston modules also recommendable.

    The CPU upgrade is not supported. The BIOS and mainboard are only tested with the preinstalled CPU.

    Hi

    I found also some info that 4GB RAM should be possible.
    Furthermore the Intel i945PM chipset support the 4GB RAM as well:
    http://www.intel.com/Assets/PDF/datasheet/309219.pdf

    *1.2 Mobile Intel® 945PM Express Chipset Feature Support*
    +All features supported by the Mobile Intel 945GM/GME Express Chipset shall be+
    +supported by the Mobile Intel 945PM Express Chipset+

    *1.1 Mobile Intel® 945GM/GME Express Chipset Feature Support*
    _1.1.2 System Memory Support_
    +Maximum Memory supported: up to 4 GB at 400, 533 and 667 MHz+

    So you can use the DDR2 667MHz (PC2-5300) 200-PIN SODIMM or DDR2 533MHz (PC2-4200) 200-PIN SODIMM modules troublefree….
