I have replaced the mother board of my M2350, and I have a new 1GB RAM module to put in it. There are 2 modules in it currently, one to the inside, hard to get at, and an additional outside which is hidden behind a removable cover. Can the 1GB module be inside and a 256MB module be outside, or should it be reversed?

Did you remove and replace 1 or 2 RAM modules? There are 2 modules installed. One is internal and one is external. Both MUST BE OF THE SAME DENSITY OR THE LAPTOP WILL NOT WORK. You will need a second 1GB RAM Module, then use the link below to download the service manual for your laptop. Accessing the internal RAM module is fairly easy...follow the directions and you will have not problems. You CAN remove the internal one and operate the device on the single 1GB module, but I would recommend if you do that, you put the 1GB module in the internal slot. Then later, if you wish, you can add more RAM without additional disassembly. By doing this you will at least double your RAM from the 512MB you had to !GB. You can double it again with the second RAM Module to 2GB later.
If you upreage the RAM to 2Gb by inserting a 2nd 1Gb memory module then the 2nd RAM maybe faulty or incompatible. If you insert a 2gb memory module to replace the 1Gb memory module then it maybe faulty or incompatible. Try using the same make and RAM speed as the original RAM module.
You can only add 1gb per slot Because the mb does not supports a bigger module. This ram type does come as 1 gb module. The 667 mhz and 800 mhz is the Mhz speed for the ram module. Your mainboard supports this but it will only run the current front side bus speed as the mainboard supports. This means that the new ram will only run 533/400 mhz as the mb supports.
To determine if a 1Gb RAM module is faulty insert one RAM module in the motherboard at a time. If the both 1Gb RAM modules work then the RAM modules from different manufacturers are incompatible with each other. Try using RAM modules of the same make and speed.
Is the 1Gb RAM you purchase the same make and speed as the original? If not, they may not be compatible with each other or the new RAM module may be faulty. Try removing the RAM from slot 1 and insert the new 1Gb RAM module in slot and boot up your laptop to test the new 1GB RAM module. Installing a single 2Gb RAM module should work. .
In order to upgrade the ram of your desktop. First you have to check the ram specifications. If wrong specifications the desktop will not work. To check you have to remove the ram from your desktop by removing the screws behind your desktop. Open the lid and you will see the contents of your desktop. Besides of your processor, there is ram installed. Unclip it. Then bring that ram to the computer shops. Purchase a ram higher than the ram installed in your desktop. Afterwards, install the new ram to your desktop. Good luck.
The problem is that your laptop only supports 2 GB of RAM. If there is not a newer bios allowing more then 2 GB is the max you can go. Since you put the 2 GB in one slot then the other slot will be useless. It wouldn't matter how much you put in the 2nd slot because the bios already says you have 2 GB on board and will not accept anymore. Sorry.
Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GBIt has to be the same.
• If you are replacing a memory module, put the
new memory module in the same memory slot
from which the old memory was removed.
• If you are adding a memory module, install the
new module into the socket nearest the
preinstalled module, and install additional
modules in the next available sockets
