|Can't get any info on that model number at all.|
Is this a conventional laptop or a small netbook? It's just I've never come across a laptop that only had one RAM slot. They all have two, as far as I know.
Did the crucial scan mean that only one slot was used (one free??)
Best bet, take a look at the installed RAM. What size does it say on the label (you may have to take out the RAM to view the other side?
If it indicates 512MB, then there's another 512MB stick of RAM hidden away somewhere.
This could be mounted under the keyboard, but without any model info, it's impossible to tell.
You could replace the accessible RAM with a 2GB stick. This would still give you a noticable boost in performance.
If it's definitely a solitary 1GB of RAM in there, replace it with a 4GB stick.
(Hopefully, Crucial got it right - although they are usually pretty reliable, and in my experience, a good company to deal with, should you purchase from them).
It's up to you whether to go for 2 or 4GB. There's a big difference in price but not sure whether therell be a huge difference in performance between the two, in a basic/budget-type PC.
Let's know how you get on. It''l be interesting to see how it pans out.
