Hi there,
I beleive that I have the required answer for you...
Basically, this series notebooks either have both the RAM slots at the bottom or one at the bottom and the other under the Keyboard.
I recommend you to try removing the RAM module cover and check if there are two RAM slots or just one.
You can find the required instructions to locate and remove the RAM compartment cover from the manual of the Notebook which is available through the link below :

Better way is to copy and paste the link in the address bar of a new Internet Explorer window and press Enter to open.
You can find the instructions to remove the RAM compartment cover from page number 35 of 154 in the Manual.
If you are able to find two RAM slots, we are done, you need to remove the preinstalled memory according the instructions available in the Manual and place the two 512 MB RAM sticks you had purchased.
However, if find only 1 RAM slot, you need to find out the instructions to remove the Keyboard to explore the second RAM slot and insert the second RAM module into it...
You can find the instructions to remove the Keyboard Cover and Keyboard from page numbers 43 and 46 in the Manual.
Hope this helps....

There should be a ram cover on the back, though I'm not familiar with this particular model.

Open the screw to the ram over, and then the RAM simply clips in and out.

Very easy to do.

I have 2 512 cards installed and the computer only shows that I have only 512 installed and it should be 1 gig?? What would be the cause of this?

There could be many reasons,
1 Either the RAM slot is not working
2 or the RAM card(s) are not OK
3 or the RAMs are not compatable(not of the same specs)

1 Remove both the RAM cards, clean the metal joints in both the RAMs and the RAM slots
2 Remove power, remove all power source, remove power cables including all the battery
3 Keep presssing the power switch ON for a few mins, Do....ON... OFF, ON... OFF WITHOUT any POWER
4 Replace battery, power adaptor, power cables etc
5 Insert one of the RAMs in 1st RAM slot, power on, check if it's OK, Switch OFF, remove the RAM
6 Do the above process for the other RAM, now check if that works, use the same RAM slot
7 Now do the above two steps for the 2nd RAM slot

It will give you a rough idea of where is the issue.....either RAMs are not OK or the slots have issues or there is a compatibility issue among the RAM cards.....

Pls reply back and leave a feedback

Can I put a memory card into an e machines D620 lap top?

If you mean add ram, it depends on how much you have now. I see the recommendation is 2 gig maximum. You can see how much you have by going to control panel, then system. The box that shows up will tell you how much ram you have installed. It might vary some, but will be close to 128, 256, 512, 1024, or some combination of these up to 2048. If it is less than 2048, you can probably add ram. One of the esiest ways to check is to go to click on "scan my system", then click on "I agree", then click on "download the scanner". The results will tell you how much ram you have installed, and what type. Write it all down. You can buy compatible ram from them, or get it somewhere else. Either way, once you get it you have to install it. Most laptops have small phillips head screws on the bottom. You need to determine which compartment is for the ram. Once you know this, be sure your laptop is OFF and UNPLUGGED. Ground yourself to the laptop, then install the new ram. You might need to remove the old ram if you got two new pieces. Simply slightly lift or move the shiny clip on both sides of the old ram and it should lift a tiny bit, enough for you to pull it out. Note how it came out, and lay it down without turning it over. Take the new piece of ram and position it the same way as the old one, as it only goes in one way. Be careful in installing the new ram, do not force it. It is easy to damage either the ram or the slot it fits into by not being careful.

I currently have just 256mps of memory ram on my dell dimension 2400. i want to upgrade. my manual says the maxium is 1024 mbs. can i install 1gb of ram or should i get 512 mbs? i have windows xp os. thank...

1024 is 1 gig of ram. Some older motherboards require you to put in ram in pairs but I don't think your system is one of those but if you have manual or can download manual you should check to be sure. If you don't need a pair then yes you can remove the 256 meg stick and add a 1 gig stick or you can put in 2 512 meg sticks. Should run a lot better as windows recommends at least 512 megs of ram.

I want to upgrade my hpdv1000 pentium M processor whats the maximum upgrade allowed for this? i have upgraded it to 2gb ram from 512mb and 250gb hd from 60gb and its doin fine.

You should be able to upgrade the CPU, since it seems that the DV1000's motherboard uses a socket CPU design. But, obviously, HP would rather have you choose the CPU that you want from the beginning and stick with it.
The first thing to do is to check HP website to see what other configurations were/are sold for your model. If they sell it with faster CPUs then you can upgrade to one of them...

In order for a particular processor to be compatible with a particular laptop:
(1) the processor must be physically compatible with the laptop socket, in your case I thing you have a Soket 479 processor
(2) the laptop chipset must support the processor.
(3) the chipset front side bus speed must match the processor front side bus speed, in your case 400Mhz.
(4) the laptop BIOS must support the processor.

So I listed here processors with FSB at 400Mhz, I gues that DV1000 as a 855GM Motherboard that supports only 400Mhz with Socket 479

Pentium M

Pentium M 1.3 1300 1024 400
Pentium M 1.4 1400 1024 400
Pentium M 1.5 1500 1024 400
Pentium M 1.6 1600 1024 400
Pentium M 1.7 1700 1024 400

Pentium M 710 1400 2048 400
Pentium M 715 1500 2048 400
Pentium M 725 1600 2048 400
Pentium M 735 1700 2048 400
Pentium M 745 1800 2048 400
Pentium M 755 2000 2048 400
Pentium M 765 2100 2048 400

Celeron M

Celeron M 310 1200 512 400
Celeron M 320 1300 512 400
Celeron M 330 1400 512 400
Celeron M 340 1500 512 400

Celeron 205 1200 512 400

Celeron M 350 1300 1024 400
Celeron M 360 1400 1024 400
Celeron M 370 1500 1024 400
Celeron M 380 1600 1024 400
Celeron M 390 1700 1024 400

RAM card to work in slot 2

Power down the system. Remove both RAMs and keep track of which socket each came out of. Check the slots in the sockets and the contacts of the RAMs for any fuzz or lint (even the slightest bit can cause problems). Swap the RAMs so that each one goes into the socket that it did not originally come out of. Make sure they are well seated and bring power back up.
If that doesn't work, please get back to me.
