Windows 7: Need to add RAM if possible: Compatibility and is it possible?

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1
 
 

Is it necessary for it to be 1066mhz? I am not super familiar w the Mhz w/ the exception of electrical input. Additionally, why is it so hard to find additional info on this Motherboard ard (It was defective and replaced by Toshiba during warranty period). My battery is also failing. Things are getting expensive on a 5 y/o laptop.

It seems easiest to find 1600mhz RAM, however that is higher in Mhz.

I do have an Amazon gift card....

A 1600 MHz RAM stick will run just fine at 1066 MHz, as long as it's the same kind of memory. For your machine it must be DDR3, which won't be a problem.

But yes, you can safely run a 1600 stick at 1066. No harm will be done.
