    Hi,

    I have a Qosmio G30-201, with the following spec:
    - Intel® Centrino® Duo Mobile Technology featuring Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T7400- Genuine Windows® XP Media Center Edition- 400 (200 + 200) GB Hard Disk Drive- 2,048 (1,024+1,024) MB DDR2 RAM (533 MHz)- 17" Toshiba TruBrite® WUXGA TFT display- HD DVD-ROM drive

    Running under Vista Ultimate

    I would like to upgrade the memory to 4096.

    Do I have to buy 4096 of memory, or can I add 2048?

    What memory do i buy? Toshiba do not seem to sell MB DDR2 RAM (533 MHz) after 4 years. What other memory would be suitable?

    Many thanks,

    Best regards

    Nick

    Your notebook can handle with 4GB of RAM and I recommend you to use 2 x 2GB module.
    Compatible 2 GB module has part number PA3513U-1M2G or Kingston KTT667D2/2G.

    Put the part umber in Google and you will find a place where you can order it in your country.

    Bye

    DDR2 667 should work fine. It will bump down to 533MHz automatically. Even most DDR2 800 should be ok.

    Try to avoid "value" RAM because they use cheap chips which can cause compatibility problems on some Chipsets.

    Hi Akuma,

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    Funny how cheap [value] is so often very expensive

    Best regards
