Question Memory speed - Can I replace slower w/faster?

I have a 1 GB stick of DDR2, 667MHz memory I want to use in place of my 256MB stick of DDR 400 memory.

Am I going to have trouble, or is it even doable?

Got a kid waiting to play a computer game - big eyes, cute and all at that, so any quick help would be really appreciated.

Dunno, but I just pulled the old stick out and the alignment notch is in a differet place, so I guess I'm screwed.

Guess I'm waiting for the stored to open tomorrow- thanks, though.

Hello,

Go to Memory upgrades, flash media, and usb storage at Crucial.com

That will give you the type of RAM that is compatible with your PC. Then buy the kind that matches it.

Cheers,
Mak
