Due to the fact that the laptop manufacturer is allowed to modify and limit the chipset at a BIOS level, you will need to contact the laptop manufacturer for them to let you know if there is a BIOS version or option on the current BIOS to increase the supported RAM for your particular laptop.
Adolfo, i have got 2 answers from HP. One is saying that laptop supports up to 2GB according to technical specifications, but they said that i can check if laptop supports 2GB module in 1 slot. Another is saying that 2GB in each slot will work totalling 4GB, but they don't recommend this as certain issue may arise or not to make any change that will damage the product.
Do you know how is it possible to damage laptop by installing more ram than officially stated?
My current BIOS version is F.17 and firmware version is 1.1, but i found newer version on their website. Here is screenshot:
Do you know if this version will support more RAM? Do you know what means PURPOSE: Routine? If you don't know, where can i find more about version F.24 A of BIOS?
Due to the fact that we do not manufacture laptop systems, we are not familiar with the way the BIOS of those laptop systems are developed.
In this case only the laptop manufacturer can answer your question.
Regarding the installation of more ram, only the laptop manufacturer can answer that question, since they are the ones that manufacture the system and knows how it works, and it's limits.
