I am going to swap out a 256k memory SODIMM for a 1gig...

According to Gateway this is the max allowed... so I am good to go as far as the specs are concerned....

The existing chip is PC 2700 DDR 333 MHz
can I use a PC2-5300 200pin DDR2 @ 667MHz??

Will it be faster, or will there be no difference?

The notebook is a Gateway 7405GX with motherboard part # 102156 - on which I can find no documentation

TIA

Mike

Put simply No, ddr2 is newer tech and different in design so it wont work, your board requires 333 MHz PC2700 DDR SODIMM memory, it's unlikely anything else will do, but knowing the motherboard would help us to say more, I suggest downloading >>>Everest<<< and see what that tells you, some boards can be finiky about the ram you use, but it does appear that 1gig is the max, but it may only be able to take it in 2x512 sticks maybe, hope this helps a bit.

Thanks again
