I would recommend Crucial for memory. Please be aware that matched pairs of memory are preferable. I would suggest either 2x1GB or 2x2Gb depending on which system you are using?

2 x 1GB sticks be the best option.

2gb 2x1 gb. B4 u install unplug plug and all conections inot laptop. Take out battery let the machine cool down. Get one of those wrist electic dischagers and where it and make sure its attached to stainles steel.

Press the on button for about 2 mins to dishcardge any electricity and opne over take old module out and inser new one screw cover back in.

Plug in power and either check bios for recognition of new ram or rickt click on my computer and click prperties this will show new ram.

Good advice may be but over the top I think.
After installing new ram the laptop will boot or not. Common sense dictates that the machine isn't plugged to the mains and no battery is connected.
To discharge any static simply put both hands on a stainless steel sink and that will be enough.
