    Just go to the HP web site and enter your model # . Then look carefully for the "Specs" for your paticular pc. If it's an older pc you may have to dig a little deeper.

Click on this link to get to the HP manuals you need

Pg 114 tells you that the computer can use 184 pin DDR DIMM cards. You can install 1GB modules into the computer.

Unfortunately your model can only support a maximum of 1GB memory.

It is not compatible with DDR-400 memory either

You are much better off upgrading to a new computer at this point.

My a1340n does not detect memory upgratde

The new RAM is not "compatible" with your motherboard, i.e., you purchased the "wrong" RAM.

Or, the new RAM is not fully "seated" into its socket.

Or, you're trying to use more memory than the motherboard is capable of supporting.
From the manufacturer's web-site:

your 2005-vintage computer maxes-out at two 1GB sticks of RAM.

I have 4 banks of ram slots. Can I keep the Bank1 256k Bank2 256k. Can I put 1G into bank3.

It is strongly recommended that you install RAM in matched pairs. So if you add a 1GB module in bank 3 then you should add 1GB in bank 4
But you can add just the one module and it should work, but not at optimal speed.
