Hi all.
I need to upgrade the memory on the above notebook. It has the following specs so far:

Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.80GHz, 192MB of RAM

and is running slow. Done the usual spyware, defrag etc and its as quick as its going to go without an upgrade.

Thing is when I go onto the PB website on one page it lists 512mb upgrades then on another it says the max it can have is 256mb total.

Does anyone have a difinitive answer? as to what I can put in it?

Any help would be great thanks

You can use the PB memry configurator found here http://support.packardbell.com/uk/memoryconfigurator/?acquire=access
It will require the serial number from the info tag on the laptop.
