    GL40 chipset supports 800MHz DDR2 memory?


      I have a Compaq CQ60-120es. The chipset is GL40. As specified by the http://ark.intel.com/es-es/products/35501/Intel-82GL40-Graphics-and-Memory-Controller-Hub page, the supported memory is 667MHz (so I understand). As indicated by the https://www-ssl.intel.com/content/www/us/en/chipsets/value-chipsets/mobile-chipset-gl40.html page, compatible memory is 667MHz and 800MHz.

      On my laptop I installed 800MHz memory, but is recognized by Windows Vista as 667MHz. I have checked with CPU-Z program that really supports 800MHz this memory.

      What could be happening? The BIOS is the latest version released by HP. It could be a BIOS error? Should I reinstall Windows?

      Thanks and regards,
