Go to HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system.
You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.

# Total Memory Slots: 2
# Dual Channel Support: Yes
# CPU Manufacturer: GenuineIntel
# CPU Family: Intel® Celeron® M processor 1.70GHz Model 13, Stepping 8

So I looked @ crucial website and it only showed SSD upgrades and Im only looking for like 1 Gig upgrade only got 70 bucks with me right now lol (Yea Im a lil bit broke) Planning on getting 2 1 Gig ram soon :) if I get the money

Anyways Im just the guy who likes to multitask .... like open firefox and then leave it open and then play some online game.... 512mb isnt enough it lags alot to the point where it just hangs >_<

Either will be fine, but if you get two, just make sure they are the same brand. I've had good experience with PNY RAM, but I've never used the ACP.

They are keyed so they only fit one way. If it doesn't seat right then turn it around and try.

Your link does not work. Can you provide a new link so that I can see what you are describing?
