That's because when the system was manufactured there were not memory 
modules to go beyond 1GB, as when the Vostro did the absolute maximum 
was 4GB. That does'nt mean you will not be able to put more ram, but 
also does'nt mean you will be able to do it.
If you go to (at least) gigabyte motherboards site, and search for AMD 
motherboards you'll find they claim about the "current maximum" because 
they could'nt test bigger sims as hey was not available, but they don't 
discard you will be able to use more than the anounced memory on those 
I have an old P3 Gateway laptop that claimed a maximum of 128MB, but is 
running on 256. Anyway, it does'nt handle "any" dimm.
