I have an HP ze4900 notebook and I want to up grade the ram mem.
Curently have 256mb and was wondering if two 512mb PC 3200 chips would work. :confused:

Laptops do not use the same memory that desktop uses so you must make sure you buy SO-DIMMs.

Go to www.crucial.com and see what the maximum you can put in is and what kind of price you'd be lokking at.

Hi.. Yes, it will accept 2 x 512MB of memory. That seems to be the maximum amount of memory that your system will take.

HP Part# 371806-001

Hope that helps!

Assuming you are referring to SODIMM memory.

Yes, SODIMM. I'll check all options as I am still learning about computers and now expanding into laptops. I use mine mostly for work and keep pictures of the aircraft that I work on and notes about what work was done. Thanks for the help.

But unless you are running Office 2003, not many applications will/can use much more than the 512 MB anyway. If you check task manager you will get a surprise.

Using 1 GB RAM here, and with 10 applications open (including some Office 2003) I still have 450 MB unused. Its mostly idle above 512.

I agree with kiwiguy, it's usually a waste of money to expand beyond 512mb if you're looking for other than bragging rights.
