What is the max RAM my laptop can handle?
I have a Compaq Preario 1800 XL1 Pentium III laptop, currently with 128MB of RAM. I'd like to upgrade it. Apparently, it has 64MB built in, plus one socket for additional RAM, which currently has a 64MB chip in it.
Compaq has told me that the maximum it can handle is 192MB (64 built in + 128 added), but www.crucial.com
seems to sell a 256MB chip for it. Who is right?
Is there anyway I can use software (Windows or Linux) to determine how much it can handle?
