You never know....Maybe it has a DDR3 slot but they put in DDR2.(My logic is very bad
...But I guess I'll stick with DDR2 to avoid any trouble....Either way thank you for going and looking everywhere
The chipset in your laptop can, in principle
, support either DDR2 or DDR3. That appears to be what Hwinfo detected.
Your laptop was built with DDR2 slots, though. You can't use DDR3.
No great loss. I wouldn't be surprised if the BIOS settings in the laptop are too limited to allow you to take advantage of high-performance DDR2, if it even exists in SODIMM form.
