Unfortunately, if the manufacturer states that the max RAM supported is 1GB, that's going to be all you're going to be able to install - unless you replace the motherboard. This can be a considerable expense.
One last thing you could do is go to Crucial - there, you can run a scan on your computer to find out what memory options you have. I would be very surprised to learn they differ from what Compaq is telling you (unless the motherboard was replaced by someone already).
Please rate this reply - good luck!
