    My current laptop is a sony VGN-SZ330P, it has two 1GB sticks of memory installed. I was hoping to install more memory, but the spec says 2GB Max. I know it's unlikely, but is there a way to increase my memory anyway?

    No. That's your limit.

    Yep, you got it. Hardware limit.

    As a side note, there is also about a 3 gig limit on a 32 bit OS as well. You might get a system that can handle 4 or more but if you have a 32 bit OS, you are wasting your money by buying over 3.
