Hi, I checked your computer out, and you can install 4GB of DDR2 laptop RAM, upto a max speed of 667MHz.
You have two slots, so you can do this via two x 2GB DDR2 667MHz sodimms. I choose Kingston, as it seems to be the most compatible that I've seen so far.
However, you are likely using a 32bit operating system, so despite fitting 4GB of RAM, Windows may only indicte 3.25GB, or 3.5GB, or thereabouts, due to the fact that a 32bit operating system cannot address more than 4GB of memory addresses. This will not be a problem, and the extra memory will still add to performance.
Though I also suggest that you disable unnecessary Vista processes to make your computer much faster again.
See www.speedyvista.com for a list of what proceses you can, and cannot disable.

Make sure you remove the battery before removing or inserting the ram :)
No worries about it not being dual channel as most laptop arent.
DDr (double data rate) ram runs at 200MHz but is actually 400 one the double data rate is applied so they are one and the same :)
I hope its a sodimm stick of ram that you bought? They are about 3i inches long rather than 6 like desktop ram?

That being said, I'll make the following comments that will hopefully answer your questions.
The maximum memory for your computer is 4 GB. However, if you are using a 32-bit operating system only 3.7 will be available for the system to use minus however much else you are sharing for the video.
Using 667 memory won't make your processor run any faster; the 533 MHz FSB is set in the processor and using 667 memory won't make the memory run any faster either; it will only run at 533. If you do get just 1 2 GB chip to make 2.5 GB total, make sure it is the same speed as the other chip. Usually it's not an issue but sometimes it can be.
Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

As reported on the EeeUser forum, the EeePC 900 is somewhat picky with RAM upgrades.
If the RAM chip is not exactly spec’d like the stock RAM module, then
the computer would be prone to freezing, especially when switching
between battery and mains power.
Also, note that the RAM module that came with the EeePC 900 is an AData PC2-3200 (running at 400 MHz) with part number DOGC1A08342. I find it strange that the chip is a 400 MHz one. Even the original 512MB chip that came with my EeePC 701 was a 667 MHz one!
This means if you plan to upgrade your 900’s RAM, better make sure the module is compatible!
P.S.: If this information was helpful, please rate this solution.

SOURCE: my asus eee 900 pc with 512mb of ram, i upgraded to 2gb of ram, and it restarted fine, now with either ram chip in it it will start to boot up, but the screen stays blank and it attempts to start up w
request you to check speed of 2 gb ram with old 512 gb, if u r using 2 strrips of 1-1 gb then first remove both and resinstall old 512 again, and checked, again install both 2 gb ram and check. if after installation of 2 gb ram laptop is not restarting the problem is only with speed of ram. u may need to install ram with proper matching speed
