    There is a little confusion with which RAM chips work with eMachines M68xx systems. There have been reports that certain brands, such as Kingmax, do not work properly.

    If you have installed additional RAM, please reply to this thread with the following information:

    Which Brand?
    What amount? (512MB, 1GB)
    Speed? (PC3200, 2700, 2100)
    What retail outlet or online retailer?
    Which M68xx model? (M6805, M6807, etc)
    Date of upgrade?

    Thanks for all of your help on this one. This should help others who want to upgrade in the future.

    Are there any differences b/w the m68xx compatibilities with ram? If the 1GB stick from Fry's/Outpost that mecdave is referring to is working in the m6809 should it work in my m6811?

    Thanks mecdave. Good info. That's what I thought but wasn't sure. Fry's sounds like a deal.

    Any word on the 1 GB stick of DDR PC2700 stick of Transcend memory from newegg.com for about $236? I was wondering if anyone has tried this memory in any of the M68XX laptops.

    I bought a Geil 512 chip from newegg for $99 and it runs fast and with no problems. I bought one of the first m6809 notebooks out and every other one I checked it against has different stickers and different brand meomory chips.
