Hi all,

 

Just to explain my success with my latitude D820. I have upgraded to 4GB (2 x 2GB modules) with standard PC2 5300 Kingston memory, and it works very well (HACKINTOSH OSX 10.6.7). The model is KVR667D2S5/2G KINGSTON. I was doubting about official dell memory or specific, but for me it runs well with standard memory (667Mhz - 5300 CL5) and it cost about 25$ each module.

 

The problem was that laptop usually fails on first recognition (at least my case, even with its original memory). I can see "reseat memory" or "system is not well configured" or something else. My solution was unplug battery and unplug bios battery connector. Then change both modules and then plug bios battery and laptop AC, then it boot perfect!

 

I just want to share with you :)

Hi, yes I really appreciate it as my work consist on Dreamweaver, Adobe Ilustrator, Photoshop, and sometimes I need a Windows XP machine running with some apps... I usually had 20 Mb free, now I get 600 Mb free. It is faster as I am not using now hard disk caches, etc... :)
