[clug] TGA - 1 x 1GB SO-DIMM - update

I have one ram SIMM left.

I gave away one which worked (passed memtest) in a Dell 6400 laptop, but 
it _only_ passed when used in conjunction with another SIMM that was 
running at 533MHZ (i.e therefore forcing the new SIMM to run at a slower 
speed). So running the new SIMMs at 533MHz instead of 667 seems to work 
well. Just to re-cap, memtest failed when the new SIMM was on its own 
(and was therefore running at 667 MHz), but worked at 533MHz.

So if anyone has a laptop that uses DDR2 533MHz ram, but not 667, then 
this ram might work well in your laptop.

Still it might also work in someone's laptop that uses 667, so if you're 
interested let me know!
