You may have non OEM memory, your system may not be able to handle that much mem, or you could have something wrong with the connector that your mem fits into. If your original mem still works then the connector is not the issue. You should also make sure you are putting in the memory stick correctly. Make sure it is put in straight and is firmly placed in the connector. If you don't it will cause your problem. Capacity is 1G. If you are trying to put in a 2G it will not work. Hope this helps.
When memory upgrades don't work, the problem could be incapable memory between RAM modules. Try to use RAM from the same manufacturer, especially the manufacturer of the RAM that was working in the laptop. Use RAM that have the same bus speed specification.
To upgrade your CD drive there is a screw on the bottom of the machine that holds it in place. Remove this screw and the drive will slide out. I buy most drives for my customers and shop from Ebay. I've found that there are some very good vendors with good prices and warranties there. Now for the memory. The memory you need for your machine is PC2100, and 1g is the max. I mainly use Kingston or Infiniton. Both of these are good chips, and there are other good chips out there. I suggest that you use two 512mb chips that are the same make. I've found that sometimes two different chips will create a conflict with each other. The memory is located under a panel on the bottom of the machine. For memory I use pricewatch.com If you have any other questions please fell free to ask.
There are two different memory modules for that series.You can determine which you need by the chipset for you machine.If you have a Via VN800 Chipset You need the 1024MB-DDR333, 333MHz, PC2700, 200p SODIMM, 2.5v. If you have the NVIDIA nForce 410 Chipset The you need the 1024MB-533MHz DDR2-533 PC2-4200, 200p SODIMM, 1.8v Hope this clears up your problem
