    I have an Acer Aspire 4720Z, which sports an Intel GL960 chipset. I currently have 3GB of memory in it. I want to use 4GB. According to this (page 18):
    http://www.intel.com/Assets/PDF/specupdate/316274.pdf

    I may be able to use 256Mx64 memory to use 4GB. I'm not sure what this means exactly or how to determine it. I originally bought a 2x2GB kit for this laptop, and am using 1 of the 2 sticks:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231135

    Is that ^ high density, low density? How can I tell?

    Also, does that 256Mx64 mean per-stick, or per-SIDE? How do I get that in per-CHIP?

    Thanks ...

    Usually on the memory chip itself, it'll say "25664"
