This computer can only accept 1gb ram MAX.
There is no way that you can get it to accept any more than that.

Sorry

Go to HP support site and see if they have released a BIOS update for your laptop that will accept a higher amount of ram. There have been some instances of BIOS updates from manufacturers to correct this issue. Just realize that if you are successful, A 32 bit windows operating system will only recognize 3 gb of that ram. To see the full 4 gb, you havr to step up to a 64 bit operating system.

Fujitsu v700 4 gb memory will not boot


You don't say if the Notebook is 32 or 64 bit.
If its 32 you may have a problem uprating the RAM more than be handled.

I have 512 mg of memory. Would there be a big difference if I add a 1 gb stick and keep the 512 mb , as oppose to removing the 512 mb and replace with two 1 gb sticks?


The performance of your laptop will improve if similar memory is placed in each of memory slot.If 1gb memory and 512mb memory are placed in available slot you will only get the performance of a single 1gb memory.but two 1gb memory are used performance will be similar to a 2gb ram or more.

I have problem about ram


If the manual says this motherboard support up to 1 GB RAM, you cannot put 2 GB. You can put 2x 512 GB RAM or 1GB RAM
Also try to upgrade your bios, maybe a better bios version supports more than 1 GB RAM.

I can't find the second ram slot


Lots of laptops have the second slot under the keyboard. If you are adventurous take the keyboard off and look in there.

Reg ram upgradation


Each memory slot on the C555NR can support a maximum of 1GB of RAM. There are actually 2 slots, but only one is easily accessible to you. By upgrading both the primary and secondary DIMMs, you could achieve a total of 2GB of memory but you would have to remove the 512mb chip that is already installed and replace it with 1GB (+1GB in the expansion slot as well.)

If you don't plan on taking the computer to a professional to be serviced, you will probably only want to upgrade the memory in the secondary slot located under the memory cover on the underside of the computer. It can handle a 1GB SODIMM.

FYI the memory is:
200 Pin DDR2-533 PC2-4200 SODIMM

Good luck!
