    Hi,

    I've recently got my hands on an old Packard Bell Easynote G1340 and installed a 1GB SODIMM PC2700 (333MHz) RAM.

    It works fine, although it only runs at 166MHz.

    Now using CPUZ/BIOS I can see my CPU Bus speed is running at 100MHz and not 200MHz (max FSB of 400Mhz), could this be why my RAM's running half speed?

    Anyone know how I can change the bus speed (it's not possible from the BIOS)?

    Here's the specification of the laptop:

    Much appreciated,

    Os
