Question about Compaq Presario 1700 Notebook
There is a good chance that your system needs a firmware upgrade in order to recognize the bigger memory. I found one in this page
Be carefull and follow the instructions since you could brick your system.
If that does not work, do not expend more money in that system (very old), just save to get a new one.
P.S. The memory you got is the right kind.
