You can't fix it if it's out of warranty. You might be able to get a 2 gb stick cheap, but check your board specs carefully before spending any more money. The limit may be 1 gb/slot. In my craigslist ads today, someone is selling 2x2gb of notebook ram for only $15; check your local listings for a similar deal.
