Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario C304NR Notebook ?

On this same laptop, my Presario C501, I want to know what the maximum amount of RAM I can buy and install to make it the best it can be. Right now it is, as purchased, and it has a Celron M processor with I believe, 1G. I have looked for these specs and have had no luck, any help would be appreciated!
