I currently have a Hp zd8000 with 1.25gigs of ram. I was wondering if a pc2-6400 will work in my laptop? The timing is a little faster, but 6400 is backwards compatible. I was also wondering what the max timings is accepted by my laptop? thanks

No - Don't buy the 6400, it wont work. The best spec for that machine would be 2x 1Gb PC2-5300.

It is 6400 i had from another laptop, i put it in and it recognizes it and it seems to work fine. Why 5300? It has 4200 in it. The timing is pretty slow though. it is 6-6-7-? vs my 4-4-4-12
