Intel 945GM Express Chipset supports up to 4096-MB maximum (2048-MB 533- or 667-MHz SODIMM in slots 1 and 2) Intel 940GML Express Chipset supports up to 2048-MB maximum (1024-MB 533- or 667-MHz SODIMM in slots 1 and 2)
Basically if you have the Intel 940GML Express Chipset, then the machine only supports 2gb of ram as a maximum, to confirm this, go to Start > right click computer/mycomputer > go to manage > device manager > system devices. Under there you'll see what chipset you have, if it's the Intel 940GML Express Chipset, you're out of luck, if it's the Intel 945GM, you may just have the wrong speed ram, make sure they are the same speed and compare them to the spec above.

The memory bay is a part of the motherboard. Try each stick in each bay to make sure that the problem is the motherboard itself. Sometimes memory is incompatible with a particular laptop. Sometimes there is a maximum allowable memory. The maximum for your PC is 2 GB.
what did you mean not working ?? didnt see the new Ram memory ?/ or didnt boot at all ....anyway ...when adding new ram memory ..first thing you do is to remove the Bios battery for to let bios on defaults and let it be able to read the new added unit ....second ...be sure the new added ram is compatible and in the same frequency ,then remove the battery like I said and in the last ...reinstall the operating system ....always look at the boot to see if the ram memory that is displayed is the same value with the one you know that actually is installed on the slots...it should work if this was just an option to make it faster ...and not a wild guess cause it use to have issues and didnt boot before...
According to the specs of this laptop model, it supports up to 4 GB of DDR2 533/667 MHz memory using two soDIMM modules. This means that you will have to replace the 512 MB memory module already installed in your laptop, & replace it with 2 soDIMM DDR2 533/667 MHz memory modules, each of 2 GB capacity.
