Laptop Memory needed


#1

Hi guys.

One of the memory sticks on my laptop has died out.

My laptop is an old sony vaio.

It had two 256mb kingston ram.

I need a 256mb DDR SODIMM RAM with speeds of 100Mhz or 133Mhz.

My laptop is currently running the kingston 256mb rams of 133Mhz at 100Mhz......

I only see a 512mb 333Mhz DDR at galaxys' online price list.........nothing slower is listed there.

Does anyone know any good shop in ISB/RWP where I will be able to buy this?

Will I find it in rwp saddar or no?

AFAIK, you can get them at either Skylink or Uplink computers in saddar. Try contacting them first - get their number from PTCL directory service.

Btw, AFAIK, clock speed is lowered if you install a higher clock ram on a mainboard that doesn’t support the higher speed.

Yeah, I know the clock speed will get lowered(my current ram is rated 133Mhz and running at 100Mhz) but will the RAM still run properly if its made to run at too low a speed compared to its rated speed?

Will it not affect its performance if its rated at 333Mhz and is running at only 100Mhz? Or will it run just fine?

And I guess i will contact the shops you mentioned 2morrow. Thanks.

They normally deal with retailers only. If they don’t allow you to get stuff directly, try contacting I.K.C. It is on Fazl-e-Haq road too after Rahat Bakery (when going towards the parliament).
