    my friend told me it was caused by latency of RAM speed that exceeded the m limit, that's true ?

    The EXACT model has this format, for example: TM4740-5261
    Travelmate 4740 is only in the series.
    I need you to enter the exact model.

    About your friend's information, it would hardly be a matter of latency but of pattern mismatch.

    Just because the processor can handle a certain amount of RAM does not mean that the motherboard chipset will be supported, as in this case.

    Generally MAC RAMs have specifications that do not work properly on non-MAC systems.
