  1. I think a total of 2GB is a maximum because they currently have not 2GB memory modules to fill two memory slots in laptop, for a total of 4GB. However, even if you have 2 x 2GB modules, you will have to use 64-bit operating system in order to utilize 4GB, since the 32-bit OSs are designed to use a maximum of around 3GB.
