Default HP Omnibook 4150 Number of Memory Slots

There is a really confusing message that I'm getting from SiSoftware Sandra 2005.2.10.50: the Mainboard Information says that I have 2 memory slots and then says that there is an empty slot even though I've filled in 2:

System Memory Controller
Location : Mainboard
Error Correction Capability : None
Number of Memory Slots : 2
Maximum Installable Memory : 1GB
Bank 0 - Internal : Empty
Bank 1 - JDIMM1 : DIMM Synchronous DRAM 128MB/32
Bank 2 - JDIMM2 : DIMM Synchronous DRAM 128MB/32

And then at the bottom, it shows a tip :

Tip 2511 : Some memory slots are free so the memory can be easily upgraded.

I've searched all over the web and I haven't found anything talking aobut how many memory slots there actually are on an HP Omnibook 4150; there are two slots in the underside of teh laptop, but is there one inside? I have extra RAM, so I want to utilize my resources as much as possible.

I got the same thing with my Compaq laptop form Sandra, so I bought more ram for it and low and behold there really were only two slots, so I wasn't able to increase my ram fully. This was just my experience, though, so maybe somebody else knows more about it.
