If you are increasing the amount of RAM installed -> On first power on after installing the RAM, system on boot up will complain about memory size changed, and to reseat the memory. Wait for about 60 - 90 seconds, and you will receive a few additional messages about F1 to continue or F2 for Setup. Go into Setup and verify that the system sees all memory installed. If installing 2 x 2GB DDR2, max possible, 4GB. BIOS setup should report 4GB installed, of which 3.37GB usable.
