Samsung R40 Laptop Upgrade?


I don't know if anyone can help with this question, but I have an old Samsung R40 Laptop which used to run Windows XP. The specs show that it will not upgrade to Windows 7,8 or any other OS beyond XP. Yesterday I wiped the HDD clean and installed Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon which looks good and runs a little slowly but without problems. The Laptop is in good condition therefore I thought I would upgrade it by adding more memory to speed it up. The Memory installed is 2x512mbs PC2-3200S-333 DDR2 200pin, unfortunately I have not been able to obtain any. I would like to double the memory to 2x1gb (2056mbs). If anyone knows for certain where I can get this memory (or Compatible) in the UK or Europe I would be most grateful.

Thanks,

gael.

Also check your laptop manual about how much of ram and type/speed it supports.

I've spoken to "Mr. Memory" and they said that it is impossible to get PC2-3200S-333, however, they have checked and said that 1GB SODIMM 200-pin DDR2 PC2-5300 667 MHz is compatible ... we shall see !

Thanks for your reply
