Hi, I have a Gateway MX3231 laptop. I wanted to upgrade it to 1gb ram. I went out and bought the PC2 4200 ram for it. I knew it was pc2 4200 because the original ram had a sticker on it. The ram didnt work. Are there any known issues with this model laptop and ram upgrade?. thanks

I agree with Wired. Also, are you simply trying to add to your existing RAM, or are you trying to completely replace what you have? The trouble with all store-bought retail memory modules is that they are really meant to completely replace your existing memory modules, and that modern DDR2 memory platforms do not perform well at all with mixed memory modules (even if it varies even slightly from your existing module).
