I just bought a Laptop with PC100 SODIMM RAM in it. I have a left over stick of PC2100 SODIMM RAM. Can I use these two together? Would there be benefit or drawbacks?

PC100 normally refers to SDRAM as opposed to DDR RAM, which is what the PC2100 stick is.
SDRAM SODIMM will only have 144 pins, while DDR SODIMM will have 200. The two are not compatible in any way, not only are they different sizes & speeds etc but also the technology is totally different.
