Default SODIMM part number decode.

Hi all,

I recently purchased what I thought was a 128Mb PC100 SODIMM. I have one
laptop which takes PC100 SODIMMs, and one which takes PC133s - this
modules works in neither laptop.

So, I'm left trying to track down the partcode, and determine whether
this is faulty, or just a different module.

The numbering on each chip reads:


Which I've traced back to Samsung, and looked at the Samsun decoder page

It seems the last two characters of the long part code should tell me
what the speed is - but there is no GL defined on the above page.

Anybody got any ideas?
