    What you might want to do is type in the model of your laptop in google web search, followed by the word memory. The first site should tell you what type of memory, how many banks you have, and the maximum supported memory. Usually if you are using pc133, your laptop is kinda old, so it might not support a full 512 total. It could also be that, which some laptop manufacturers do, use only a CERTAIN TYPE of memory chip that is specific to their company. I will not name names.....TOSHIBA.... but you might want to try that and get back to us.
