Without information on the rest of the computer, particularly the motherboard, it is impossible to say.

However, looking at the specs you do give it is a vary old computer and probably not worth upgrading. More memory would be about the only reasonable upgrade depending on what you have now and if you have the space to fit it.

Mainboard : manufacturer : quanta
model : 3084
chipset : intel i855gm/gme
southbridge 82801(ich4-m)

I know it`s old i just want to upgrade my ram , that`s all , i researched myself and it says that it could support 2 gb but i`m not sure , i placed an order in waiting for 2 pieces of 1 gb but i don`t want to confirm until i know for sure it`s good


I don `t understand the thing with jdec1# working at 133 and jdec2# working at 166


on spd in cpu-z it says :


max bandwidth pc2700 (166 mhz)
manufacturer samsung
the part and serial number

EDIT:
THIS IS WHAT I WANT TO ORDER


Mushkin 1GB DDR 333MHz CL2.5

the guy from the store says that are compatible

Go to www.crucial.com and run the online tool to check the memory type and amount.

I believe that your memory is not DDR, if so, it will not work. Go to www.crucial.com and use their scanner to verify what RAM it can run, then either purchase it or go looking for the same.
Many of the boards at that time also had limits of 500MB sticks of memory with a 1GB total maximum, if so then any 1GB sticks will not work, even if otherwise the same.
JDEC1 & 2 are different settings that your RAM can run at, but you are already running your ratio at 3:4 so the faster setting will not help you any and might hinder instead.

Consider replacing the entire system, even if you could find a compatible CPU, Graphics card (probably requiring a different power supply), more memory, you would spend too much money and not realize all that much improvement. Save your money for that.

The Celeron M is a mobile CPU. Are you asking about a laptop? If you are, why didn't you posted the make/model?

i runned the test at crucial.com and they telled me that it supports 2 gb but as fingers said i think it could be a problem with the 1 gb modules.Don`t know what to say , just thanks for the advice.

ze4900 may just be the model series, look for a complete model number (it may be similar like ze4964 or something like it, it maybe longer, or maybe different) on a different label of purchase receipt and search for that on HP's support pages, you may get more specific information. Crucial scans are usually correct, but it would always be good to double check if possible.
