Answers :

Before I can answer this fully we need to know what is the P/N AND MODEL NUMBER on the bottom of the laptop. There is a difference in those models. Compaq had a big problem with the wrong model names on the laptops.

Hello,
\015\012
\015\012Here is a link to what ram options you have for your laptop. Also, the 2400 is probably just a series number on the receipt, because they may sell more models in that family.
