How can I fix RAM errors in my old laptop?

Hello everyone!

Can I fix RAM errors in my old laptop HP Compaq Presario 2540AP?
It has 446MB of RAM and BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) always with PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA code of BSOD. RAM has been tested with
Memtest 86+ and there are 19 errors.

I will say specs later.

    Can I remove all old RAM from laptop then install new RAM?

    OK!

    You mean that I can install 2 RAM with 512MB? Can I remove used RAM?
  5. Yes.
    You'll probably need to unscrew the bottom part of your laptop to access it, but removing RAM is very simple.
    Should have a metal clip on each side of the module you just tap and the RAM module pops right out.
    Easiest replacement procedure there is.
