✔ Best Answer
If you have been using that laptop for 3 years with 2GB of RAM then why do you need 4GB now?

If your computer is running slower then you need to clean things up. Download and run the cleaner module for Ccleaner Slim. Get it from the second link below. The third link is for battery vendors.

Also, you most likely have saved many files in 3 years. Verify that you have enough free space on your hard drive to operate correctly. Check that by opening "Computer" and seeing your total disk capacity and the free space. Post those results here.

Also see the first link below to learn how to check what programs are running at startup. Loading unneeded programs at startup uses RAM. If you are unsure what you can stop, simply post the list of programs here and someone can help with that.

If you currently have 2 x 1GB, you will have to replace both. According to Crucial, your laptop uses DDR2-800. Their kit is $56: http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compa...

Newegg has RAM for about 1/2 the price: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...
