Swapping out memory from a Toshiba to a Dell. Just a compatibility question.
It's been a while since I've been hardcore into the hardware aspect of things, so just for reassurance I wanted to ask here.
My girlfriend has a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop computer, loaded with Win XP and 512mb of RAM.
I just bought a Toshiba Satellite A215-S7422 laptop loaded with 1gb of RAM and Vista (2x512). Any minute replacement ram for my computer will be arriving, which is a single stick of 2gb.
Her laptop uses DDR2 400 PC3200 200pin RAM.
My laptop uses DDR2 667 PC5300 200pin RAM.
My pair of 512mb sticks would run in her laptop, right? The speed would just be downclocked to that of what her laptop is designed for, AKA 400.
I just am 100% flat broke and the last thing I want to do is fry her computer and buy her a new laptop.
There's no place like /home.
