Hoping someone can help me. I am not very clued up when it comes to computers but realised that my notebook needed new RAM - running on 256 (minus 64 for the video) so only 192MB. I went to a PC shop and they have installed another 512MB chip. THe problem is that the 256 chip in already is a 333 (don't know what that is?) but the new chip is 400. I queried this and he said - 333 is not available and 400 will be fine as it will just run at 333 anyway...

Is this true? Will it be okay? :tazz:

Thank you - I did so, it does say 700MB. So it must be working! Yay... And the 333/400 difference won't harm the computer?

it's not like i am a ram expert i know where to put and how to put in and stuff but not much about details i asked my brother who knows everything about computers and he told me that it might run not as good with the difference but since you have 700 you won't even notice that is lot of ram. as for harming the computer your fine it won't do any damage.
