hello, here's a part of the spec from the hp website. It looks like you've got 256mb on board memory and one expansion memory slot in which you can fit a 1024mb card, giving you a max memory of 1280mb (1024+256). Hope this helps! nicam49

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.
Your motherboard is bad or there might be something in the slot preventing the memory from seating properly.Check if there is something in the slot preventing the memory from seatting properly.good luck
I assume the laptop had originally 256Mb RAM and you put 512Mb RAM in a the spare memory slot and you expected to see 768Mb of memory, is this correct?
Try removing the 256Mb memory module and insert the 512Mb memory module and see if the laptop boots up with 512Mb of RAM. If it doesn't boot up then the RAM is either incompatible or faulty.
Try using RAM modules from the same manufacturer.
according to ibm
you are allowed only pc100 memory with a maximum of 512mb.
when handling memory make sure you are grounded before touching any memory chips.
try getting another set of 256mb chips and grounding yourself before installing them.
Ok, so you just got more Hard disk space, or a new bigger Hard disk. Of course you need t upgrade the Ram memory. This computer supports Ram memory up to 1 Gb with a max frequency of 266Mhz. You probably have 256Mb or 512Mb of Ram Memory. You can go to any computer store and get it upgraded. It shouldn't be expensive. But don't forget :
Use this tyoe of RAM: DDR SDRAM (266 MHz), Upgradeable to 1GB
By the way, even after the upgrade, I advise you to run a Defrag of your Hard Disk and clean all your temp files.
There is a free and easy software to clean all temp and internet temp files: Ccleaner.
Hi there. Yes you can upgrade the memory to 2 x 512MB DDR SDRAM memory. You will be pleased to know that the system supports up to 2GB DDR SDRAM memory (2 x 1GB) Please be gentle when installing the new memory taking care to remove the battery and the mains power from the laptop first before installing.
