Hello, I was wondering if you had received an answer to this. I also have this laptop and was wondering if there is any option for upgrading beyond 196MB. I am currently attempting to upgrade the processor and the screen. The processor to 700 MHz (tho it only sees 550 MHz) and to a 13.3 inch screen so that I can see 1024x768. Unfortunately, the board only uses 800x600 so I am seeing if there is bios flash or if the board has to be replaced.

We have some Compaq Deskpro EN (Pentium 1GHz) workstations at the office and in the manual it says 512MB is the maximum. When we tried putting more in, the workstation doesn't POST and gives you a message that it doesn't recognize the memory configuration or something like that. When we contacted tech support, they said that it's hard coded into the mobo and that a BIOS upgrade will not help. So seeing how a Compaq PC, that is about four or five years old, will not take more memory, it's highly unlikely that the laptop will.
