    My 2004 PB 1.5 has recently lost it's lower memory slot. This is the same issue which has been discussed here before.

    The stock DDR chip is a PC2700 200 pin.

    Does anyone know of a compatible larger than 1gb capacity memory chip which will work? Has anyone successfully tried putting in a DDR2 PC-5300 2GB chip this series of PB? Will it physically fit and/or be recognised by the OS?

    Thanks for any help.

    People have tried 2GB sticks and it won't recognize more than 1GB of it. Sorry.

    First, I don't think DDR comes in sizes larger than 1GB. Second, it is my understanding that the physical layout was also different for DDR2... so I don't think that it will work.
