I have successfully overclock one module Kingstone KHX2666C15S4/8G from 2666MHz to 3000MHZ at laptop and I tested it successfully with games. What I 've done was:
Rise voltage: from 1.2 to 1.35mV
Rise Memory Ratio: from 10 to 11. It gave me stable 133*11=1463MHz (~3000MHz)

It was great but,
I try to overclock it even further.
Rise Memory Ratio: from 11 to 12. So it should gave me 133*12= 1596MHz(~3200Mhz). I left voltage at 1.35mV.

Unfortunately laptop wasn't able to catch this freq.
BIOS automatically return to default values:
Memory Ration: 10
Voltage: 1.2mV

so I back to 1.35mV and I could do this successfully and than I try to rise memory ratio. Unfortunatelly I cannot Rise Memory Ratio: from 10 to 11. BIOS just reset settings to default 2666MHZ(mem. ratio 10 and voltage 1.2mV) so I can set only default RAM profile.

Could be any damage made to RAM stick?
How to make 3000Mhz possible again?

Make and model of your laptop? You should ideally leave SO-DIMM's at their specified frequency since overclocking them can and will cause damage unless the kits are rated to go higher.

Inf act, what you could've done is tighten the timings while still being on 2666MHz.
