this is my first post, thought i would get that out of the way!
anyway i bought a gateway mx3210 about 3-4 months ago. comes with 256 memory and 40 harddrive. talked to some people and they recommended upgrading the memory. so i called office depot and asked if they had one, they didnt.
but he gave me the information that i would need to find on my own. so i called up bestbuy told them the specific laptop and he gave me the part number that would work. went up there, found the guy that i talked to and he got me the one i needed.
got home took the old one out and when i tried to put the new one in, it did not fit correctly. so i didnt jam it in. it seems that there is a lil notch right there and it is off to the side just a hair. just enough not to be able to easily slide the new one in.
they are the same size, the gold marks are all in the same spot, (put one on top of the other and they lined up exact) but the notch is off by a hair.
the new chip is made by PNY technologies.
configurator part # N512D27OPT
512MB,DDR SODIM,N 64WND PO127221 <<< #'S on chip
did he give me the wrong one? any ideas?
thanks in advance, and since i already opened it up i am stuck with it.
