Hi Guys!

I've just joined and am very excited to get learning and hopefully help if I can.

I was really hoping that you could help me with something's that doing my head in ....

I have an Acer Aspire 5720z laptop, i just bought 2 gb of ram (kingston 800mhz), installed it, checked on cpuid and it states that it's running at it's lowest frequency (266mhz) and I have no idea why, and how to increase it up to 400mhz.

I don't know if this is like a cool and quiet thing where the frequency ramps up as load increases, but have tested opening some mighty large panoramic files and it stayed to 266.

So I thank heaps in advance if someone can shed some light on this, and hopefully get that ram sped up!

Cheers

Taio

The maximum frequency for RAM your laptop can handle is 533mhz (which is PC2-5300)...
So its running at the correct speed, you just bougt ram faster than you needed. =D
