Hi:

 

The fastest speed your notebook's processor can run the memory at is 1866 MHz.

 

So any memory you install that is faster than 1866 MHz, such as 2400, 2666 or 3200 is going to bridge to 1866 MHz.

 

Memory cannot run any faster than the processor is capable of running it at.

 

Nothing you can do about it.

The processor is not upgradable since it is an integral part of the motherboard (soldered to it).

 

None of the motherboards in your notebook's service manual come with processors that can run the memory faster than 1866 MHz.
