    Yes, 667 mhz - that's what I've got.
    I've contacted the seller but so far no response, probly not a good sign...

    Most likely just a bad ram stick. Ram is one of the most commonly malfunctioning pieces of brand new computer hardware. In the future only order from good websites with excellent return policies like Newegg. I think they have like a 90 day ram return policy.

    I could get a replacement stick from them but I'd rather go with someone else cos I want more than 1 lousy GB. I definatley want at least 2 GB and maybe 4. Win Vista is like watching grass grow compared to my quadcore XP desktop!

    I really expected the laptiop to have a 1 GB stick and an empty slot, not 2 x 512 MB ones. I guess I'm
