    No. You need PC5300 667MHz. (Hope I'm not too late)

    I think 800mhz would work, but I can't tell if that's notebook ram or not

    I got this from another forum

    "The way that those numbers are calculated is by multiplying the base speed (667 in this case) by 8.

    What you get is 5336. So some manufacturers round down to 5300, and some round up to 5400... they are the same."
