    Hello Rem3653 :wave:

    I am not a mod, but
    Welcome to [​IMG] :grinthumb

    You didn't choose the best spot for your question.
    One of these helpful hints (below) will probably help you find the right place.
    Sitting here in introductions, it will likely get missed.

    When I arrived, one of the Mods welcomed me with these helpful hints.

    Added Information -
    Per Crucial, Your computer has "Number of Slots: 2 (Slot 1 & Slot 2 )"
    Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700 with a maximum of 512MB per slot.*

    This is fairly typical of a laptop.
    Some mainboards that you will find in towers (mini/mid/full) will have up to four slots (or maybe even more with ddr3). These would be two banks of two slots each.
    Yours is two banks, one slot each.

    From your manual -
    Second Edit...
    1. Be Sure to Buy only "Guaranteed to Work" memory. Generic may or may not.
    Go to a reputable site that matches memory to your computer!
    2. I have had difficulty finding where the second slot is to be found.
    3. Do you know how much memory is currently installed?
    If you have memory in the user accessible slot, and it is the only slot that is accessible, you could already be maxed.
