    Default Can PC 2700 RAM be coupled with PC 3200 RAM

    My laptop which is a Toshiba A50-111 came with two 256 MB PC2700 RAMs.

    I went and bought a 1GB PC3200 RAM which is working now. My question is can I reuse one of my 256 MB PC2700 RAM along with the 1GB PC3200 RAM?

    If not then do let me know of the problems I will face if I do use both of them together.

    Thanks

    Rohit

    The answer is that yes it will probably work but you shouldn't bother. The old, slower RAM will cause all of your RAM to operate at the slower speed negating any boost that the extra RAM might have created. Mixing and matching different speeds of RAM can occasionally cause other issues as well.
