I have a T500 2242CT0 and bought a PNY - 2-Pack 4GB 1.6GHz PC3-12800 DDR3 SO-DIMM Unbuffered Non-ECC Laptop Memory Kit from bestbuy.The model number is MN8GK2D31600-Z. Is it compatible and how can I install this RAM in my T500?

It looks like it should work, but sometimes, particular types don't work on a particular machine. I always suggest buying from a seller with a good return policy. I have never seen a problem with Corsair Vengeance, but others have different favorites

Well, I went ahead and bought it and even tried installing it .However, I keep getting the 8 beeps and my PC does not start up.I checked and it seems my mobo (2242 CTO) does not support the PC3-12800.BIOS also does not have any option to adjust my DRAM settings to downclock and so I might end up returning this RAM. Anybody have any other ideas of how I can try to tweak my PC to accept this RAM?
