    I bought a customized HP Pavilion notebook directly from HP. It came with an Intel T7500 2.2 GHz processor that runs a 800 MHz FSB. It also came with 2Gb RAM (which I believe is PC2 5300 DDR2 RAM in the form of two 1GB chips). The system has a maximum of 4Gb memory, so I want to match 4Gb Ram (in the form of two 2Gb chips) to the CPU.

    Is there any reason why PC 6400 DDR2 800 Mhz 2 Gb chips would not work in this system? I bought two of these chips from newegg.com (they were OCZ chips) and when I installed them I was unable to boot the machine. The PC runs fine with the slower DDR2 PC2 5300 chips that run at 667 MHz.

    :confused:

    You didn't provide any model number so it's difficult to check anything.

    Are you sure it accepts 2GB RAM chips?

    Put the old back and check in the BIOS to see if there are any settings specific to, or possiibly hinting at memory configuration.
