Make sure your memory chips are in working order. Then make sure your Harddrive is also ok. Load a fresh copy after saving your info you don't want to lose (i.e. documents, pictures, favorite places, videos, music, ets.) And don't be afraid to format the harddrive with the slow format. It's time consuming but checks all the sectors.
remove the bios battery for a few seconds...and place it back on ...this will make it see the new ram memory modules...if you are sure they are compatible ..they will work .....in fact ..the ddr1 333 512 M is more that compatible with your system and it will work after you remove the battery ...\ my recommendation is to reinstall a clean operation system after you boot up ...and format the C partition too...this have to be done after memory changes to get the max out of them ..
vista needs 40mb to install ...no matter how much mem you install vista is slow compared to xp or xp pro which configuered right can run at lightening speeds.
to upgrade mem ...
you either have 2 512mem cards or 1 1024 card ...if you have 1 1024 card add another if you have 2 512 replace with 2 1024.
you can buy mem cards in any pc shop.
i have the same model with 512 ram and no difference with the video. Its the 133 front bus is just too slow for todays video speed. Adobe flash keeps upgrading for the faster computers and outdates the older machines. What i did with my I-Buddie was to take XP off, it weighs it down with all the processing going on in the background. I put Ubuntu on it and WoW! speed is way up again. Video is watchable much improved over XP.
youll find your memory underneath your laptop beneath a compartment door which is secured by usually one screw.remove screw and lift hatch to view mem.either one or two slots will be available.mem looks like oblong board with chips on it.at either side of memory board are clips.push clips outwards and lift out mem board.when clips are removed mem board will lift to about 45 degree angle.to put new mem in; place board in housing ,dont worry they only go in one way ,then push down till clips secure
