As far as I know, the machine supports 4GB of ram, so you purchase the ram modules from a pc parts dealer and install them inside the machine, removing the existing ram, there are 2 slots, so you need 2, 2GB cards.
You do not require any drivers or bios update.
Windows will need to be upgraded to 64Bit version if you wish to use the full capacity. as normal windows is limited to 3-3.75GB

The only thing you could do is put in a 256MB module in the slot that you have access to. Only one socket is user upgradable. The second socket is only upgradable by a Dell service center. They would have to install a second 256 module to get you to the 512MB max.
Hi, You can have a maximum of 2GB in that laptop 1x1GB in each slot, the ram speed is PC3200, PC5300 is too fast so the bios will not recognize it as the maximum is only 400MHz, stick to the PC3200 for each stick. Ask for SODIMM DD2 SDRAM, PC3200 2x1GB, i also recommend Kingston as the ram manufacturer.
easiest way is go online to hp product support. ask for upgrade of memory for your laptop. Buy memory at local computer store. Laptops are very compact, and time consuming. If there is a local IT college near you, I recommend you take the laptop, and memory there. You can have a student install memory for you at little cost .
Okay, I don't believe someone wants 300 more for an extra GB. You can upgrade it to 4 GB for just over $100, 2 GB is around $52. On the bottom of the laptop will be a compartment with one or maybe two screws in it. There should be a little picture of memory next to the screw(s). Loosen the screws and remove the door, there is your memory. You may have to remove a chip to install the 2 GB chip or, if it already has a 1 GB chip in it and one slot is free, then you can just purchase another GB and install it.
