What ram does a compaq nx6310 take?

Im looking to buy more ram for this laptop.  But I do not see what kind of ram it takes by looking at the manual .    Here is a link to the page with the manuals on it.  I looked at the memory manual and that did not have any specs.  http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DocumentIndex.jsp?contentType=SupportManual&lang=en&cc=us&docIndexId=64179&taskId=101&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=1839143#5

I used cpuz to identify the ram and this is what im reading from cpuz about the ram in the laptop.  ddr2 single channel 512 mb dram frequency 266.0 MHz.  

here is the site I need to order ram from.  http://www.govconnection.com/IPA/Shop/Product/Search.htm?DefSort=Y&term=ddr2%20
Any suggestions on the right ram would be appreciated.

According to the Crucial selector (which is usually accurate), your notebook may have a 945GM or a 945GML chipset. The memory type is the same but capacity is different. 945GM has 4GB max (2GB per slot) while 945GML has a maximum capacity of 2GB (1GB per slot). Either way, the memory is PC2-5300 (DDR2-667).

Before I can advise you any further, need to know which chipset you have and how much memory you intend to install.

Run this utility (SIW) to identify chipset and current memory. CPUZ information seems suspect. http://www.gtopala.com/

I downloaded and ran that program.  It was an Intel i945GM Revision 3

OK. So how much memory do you want and what does SIW show for currently installed? You already know type and maximum capacity.

I would like to max it out with ram.  So This laptop holds 4 gb?  There are 2 slots. One under the keyboard and one under the computer.  You think I can put 2 gb sticks in there?
