HP Pavilion zx5030 Laptop with 15.4screen
currently 256mb under keyboard and 512mb on back - both DDR333/PC2700
Hard Drive Hitachi Travelstar: Model#:IC25N060ATMR04-0; 60GB;ata/ide;4200rpm;8mb
Seller swears blind that is pc2700. But many searches give this as pc2100 discontinued Crucial item (ie, they move on to pc2700 and above specs)
Some other printing on label is: MT 200529; BG111R8.49; 48269
On reverse side some chips have engraved: 5LD11 D9FJH; also have following or variant of: L8C5 mT
I cannot verify what the heck the stick is as laptop in pieces as dealing with dead power socket.
and... is why am doing mem upgrade as perfect time - to be truthfull, taking appart is [for me] very slow hair raising experience
I have sent 4/5 eBay msgs asking questions and every reply is that it's pc2700...
In final msg seller says to return and give refund.
But I not believe/trust anything seller says. IF I send then worst case is I loose price + stick...
So then - that's what I gotta find out is this: Assuming is pc2100 then the original 512mb pc2700 will downgrade to pc2100.
So ok, I would then have 1.5gb at pc2100 instead of 768mb at pc2700
???Would there be much real life cons having the new configuration?
Would the extra memory (0.75gb) even tho all 1.5gb runs slower show performance increase or what?
Basically, IF get involved with seller getting money back [safely] then is gonna be vip hassel.
So if you people think "Hey! 1.5gb at pc2100 is no slouch..." then to stop further major agony and time spent over the seller [bas**rd]! I just install and get on with it!
ALL replys totally appreciated.
Cheers from UK
ps... and - guess what, the sun is shining today
