I am looking to upgrade my NC10 to 2 GB as my son is thinking if buying one and he would like to play Football Manager 2009 on his way to work. I have tried to read all the threads about this but am confused by the part number Play have this Kingston KVR667D2S5/1G Valueram Computer Memory 1GB PC5300 DDR2 667MHz 200 Pin SO Dimm at Â£9,49 which has mixed reviews but memorybits has Kingston 1GB DDR II SD-RAM D-RAM SO DIMM 200-pin 533MHz PC2-4200 at Â£15.30. Could someone give the definitive number please. Also any updated comments on playing FM 09 would be appreciated.
Thank you.March 3, 2009 at 7:42 pm #185333s162000Member
What you have found is the same amount of ram but with different operating speeds. The NC10 supports DDR2 SODIMM 667mhz ram, it should also support 533mhz ram but I would go for the cheaper, faster option!March 3, 2009 at 7:50 pm #185335YsabelMember
Be careful what you want to order as both your descriptions are 1G of RAM – NOT 2G. 🙂March 3, 2009 at 8:10 pm #185334s162000Member

Didn’t spot that! I think Sparky may be thinking the NC10 has two memory slots, which is not the case!March 3, 2009 at 8:22 pm #185336
Thanks for your comments. I have checked Play again and was about to order Kingston KVR667D2S5/2G ValueRAM / 2GB / 667MHz / PC5300 DDR2 / 200pin SODIMM / Laptop Memory but noted this review about speed.
Removed the NC10 1GB module for this one and it works fine. Not the fastest but no problems and worth the upgrade at minor cost as expected with Kingston Value RAM. Tech details/Speed etc: CL5 (3ns – 8ns), tRC = 54ns
Is there another option to purchase.

So just to confirm before making the deadly deed I am looking to purchase 2GB 667 MHz PC6400 DDR2/200pin SODIMM. Just put off by the ‘Value’ word in a number of places.
Thanks all again, now I must see about an external dvd drive.

I would recommend crucial, I am not sure if they are the cheapest but if you go the the site you can put in the make and model of your pc and they will present you with the right RAM. I have always used them just for this reason, that way I don’t cock it up.
