I think they only support 4GB maximum (on 2x2GB) so installing 1x 4GB (with or without a 1GB aswell) may result in..
only 3GB showing.. or
no response at all...
but if it works, then leaving a 1GB in, wouldn't affect it really to be honest...
Life is a tool, use it wisely and properly. Don't break it, because you can't exchange it if you do.
Life is an instrument, it needs regular cleaning, maintenance and tuning to keep it at its best.
Fear, is not knowing. Terror, is finding out.
