I own an HP Mini 1000 running XP. The manual says I can only use 1gb of RAM under XP but, up to 2gb under Linux. Why can't I upgrade to 2gb of RAM under XP? Is it just because XP-SP2 won't go into hibernation with more than 1gb of RAM as I've read elsewhere or, is there another reason?
I have the Compaq Mini D600e which is basically the HP mini rebadged as a compaq and I've had no problems. Took out a single 1gb DDR2 and replaced with 2gb DDR2 and it's worked fine. Tested with WinXP and Windows 7. I can't see any reason that the HP mini would be any different ??
