I have a Packard Bell dot S2, which currently has 1G of ram, which I want to increase. According to the crucial memory configurator the max memory is 2048MB, however the only compatible parts suggested is a 2G upgrade (CT1267153). Is there a reason why an equivalent 1G upgrade isn't suggested? Does installing memory into the upgrade slot disable the onboard memory or is there only one socket etc?
Part #: CT1267153 • DDR2 PC2-6400 • CL=6 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR2-800 • 1.8V • 256Meg x 64
Suitable alternative 1G upgrade?
Part #: CT12864AC800 - DDR2 PC2-6400 • CL=6 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR2-800 • 1.8V • 128Meg x 64
Any info would be appreciated!

Hmm, I'm not sure why that would be?
Looks like the 1GB would work, but maybe they left it out of the scanner results due to some issue? Hopefully a Crucial Rep will reply here about this, if not you may want to contact them directly and see if you can find out.
You may or may not be able to mix a new 1GB module with your current 1GB module, so that may not be the best route to go anyway in case it fails to work together and you have to return it.

The reason for this is that you only have one memory slot. You would need to remove the 1GB module to install the 2GB module. This is common in a lot of netbooks. Please see the following link for the upgrade for your system:

Thanks - I finally took the bottom off my dot S2 apart to take a look at the memory slot and was surprised to see a 1G stick in there. I had assumed the existing memory would be buried deep inside (I'm used to an Aspire One where you really have to work for the memory upgrade!) and that this was an expansion slot, but no. So 2G upgrade it will have to be, shame I missed the 10% off offer by 2 hours!

What type of memory does CPU-z show being used, then you will know for sure
