Dell Vostro 230 Slim Tower RAM Upgrade

Is there a definitive approved Dell part number (or equivalent) that I can purchase to upgrade my Vostro 230 Slim Tower from 1GB to 4GB (2 x 2GB). The specs of the Vostro are:

Motherboard:

MFR No: MIG41R P/No: 07N90W

Dell P/No: JL1117 Rev: A01

RAM: Kingston 1GB 1Rx8 PC3 10600U 9-10-A0

Current Bios Revision: 1.4.0

Currently running Windows 10

There is a lot of conflicting information around on this subject. I want an approved part number that I can purchase from Dell.

Hema, Thanks for the reply. Can this motherboard accept more than the suggested 4GB (2 x 2GB modules) RAM?. For example, can it take 8GB (4 x 4GB modules). If it can, what are the Dell part numbers and equivalents for this RAM.
