Default laptop ram

I have an old Toshiba Satellite 1135-S125 and it only has 256mb of ram, I was wondering if I could use DDR1 PC2700, or PC3200 memory instead of the designated PC2100 it's currently using. I know the memory under clocks in pcs but does the under clocking also apply to my artifact of a laptop?

Yes, you can use higher ram but it'll will downclock. For older PCs, they tend to be more fickle so it is more wise to use the correct ram.


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
