Installing DDR2 667mhz in 553mhz supported mainboard
Hi everyone! Merry Christmas!
My friend has a laptop with the motherboard that originally supports DDR2 553mhz ram. He needs to upgrade his RAM and I'm thinking of installing a new 2Gb DDR2 667mhz for him. It's pretty difficult to find 553mhz RAM in retail stores here. Just curious if the motherboard could support 667mhz memory. Thanks a lot!

Hi newcomer, and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.
Yes, you can buy and install the 667MHz, but this only can run at 533MHz, and maybe you can have some problem like blue screen.
hi SAINT19, Thanks a lot for ur fast response! what's the chance of having blue screens? if that's too common, i think i better dig into 533MHz. what do you think? Thanks.
