Anytime I add memory to slot 1, it will not pass post. Everything works in slot 0, up to 1 GB. Nothing works in slot 1. Is there a jumper somewhere or something that needs to be enabled? I can't see a name on the motherboard to go looking on the net.
Hi slcdane 13. One thing with DIMM slots is that, first of all they are color coded there. Im assuming that you have 4 DIMM slots and two of them are one color, and the other two are another color. What that means is that is if One DIMM slot has a RAM module of a certain capacity, then the other DIMM slot of the same color has to contain a RAM module of the same capacity as the first module. Now i am assuming that you have more than two RAM modules and More than 2 DIMM slots. HERE IS AN EASIER EXAMPLE
Lets say you have DIMM slots 1, 2, 3, and 4. Slots 1 and 3 are yellow, and slots 2 and 4 are red. Now lets say you also have 4 Ram modules. 2 of them are each 2 Gigabytes ready, and the other 2 are each 1 Gigabyte ready. Now lets say you take one of the 2 Gigabyte RAM modules and you place it into DIMM slot 1 which is yellow, what this means is that you have to place the other 2 Gigabyte RAM module into the DIMM slot 3 which is also yellow. The remaining 1 Gigabyte modules will have to go into DIMM slots 2 and 4 which are red.
Now do you get it? Same capacity modules have to go into same color slots. Now try it and see.

As you mentioned that you want to use Maximum memory that is supported by 9410, I would like to tell you that you have 32 bit processor in your notebook as its not always advisable to use 4 GB RAM with 32 bit processor as we have seen lots of compatibility issues.Infact in 32 bit processor windows will typically report only 3.2 GB due to a limitation of windows itself.
There are two slots for memory on that laptop and it will take a maximum of 2GB of RAM. The memory type is
1.8-V SODIMM DDR-2. The cover ont he bottom if the laptop is easy to access and add more memory.
Memory: Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. You may purchase here. This will give you the biggest speed increase.
CPU: I could not find specs for which cpus this motherboard supports. However, I had one of these same machines and succesffuly swapped out the celeron processor for a pentium 4 processor, 2.53 GHz. You should be safe finding a used processor on ebay that's a Pentium 4 2.2 GHz and it should work for you.
I had the same issue on this board where it came with a Samsung 512 MB 533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2 DIMM. I put in a 1 GB Kingston with the same specs (533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2) and it would not recongize the Samsung anymore with the system reading as 1 GB of RAM instead of 1.5 GB. Tried every configuration and would only see the Kingston. It would only see the Samsung if I pulled out the Kingston regarless of the slots I use. So, I just bought the exact same make/model of Kingston and it recognized that fine and the system now has 2 GB of memory (max this board allows). And, I had already installed the latest BIOS for this board from Intel before doing all this so wasn't an old BIOS. I'm figuring the board didn't like something about the Samsung memory (speed, module configuration, etc.) that made it not play nice with the Kingston. If interested I bought the DM8400A/1G Kingston modules. And, this board appears not to support dual channel memory. Only has channel A, slots 0 and 1, and I read need two channels to support dual channel (seems obvious). Boards that supports dual channel memory normally have 4 memory slots, two for channel A and two for channel B, then put in matching modules in slot 0 for channel A and B and have dual channel memory access. And if want more ram, then matching modules in slot 1 for channel A and B.
Try moving the working DIMM to other slots, it should work in any slot, if it does, the other ram u have is incompatible or bad
Install a matched pair of DIMMs (equal in speed: DDR266, DDR333, or
DDR400; density: 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, or 1 GB; and
technology: 128 Mb, 256 Mb, or 512 Mb) in DIMM 0 in both Channels A and
B. If additional memory is to be used, install another matched pair of DIMMs
in DIMM 1 in both Channels A and B.
