Now this is weird. Specs say this laptop has DDR2 6400 RAM which runs at 800Mhz (actually 2x 400Mhz).

I am checking it with CPUZ (http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php) and it clearly states that RAM is only running at 333Mhz (that's 667 DDR, or DDR2 5300). This is irrelevant to CnQ as it stays at this frequency regardless of the CPU speed.

Bios has no way to change RAM timing.

Can you please check with CPUZ (no installation required but admin rights are necessary to read hardware) and report back?

Thanks

Ok, I get it now!

It's the CPU, the Athlon X2 QL-62 only supports dual channel DDR2 333Mhz bus.

This is a let down as FSC clearly advertises this laptop with DDR2 800 RAM (although if this merely discribes the memory sticks, it's true).
