  • This is what I understood from your post, you have 4 RAM slots and 2-slots have 256mb RAM and 2-slots are empty. I would suggest adding the 2GB RAM to the remainging empty slots. Dont remove the existing 256MB RAM from the other slots, don't touch it. 


    Slot1 --> 256MB

    Slot2 --> 256MB

    Slot3 --> 1GB

    Slot4 --> 1GB

    Total --> 2.5GB
