Hi guys,
I ordered 2 sticks of ram for my wife's Acer L310 and used the online configurator tool to see what was needed. The tool recommended 2 240 pin DDR2 PC25300 sticks at 1 GB apiece to max out the ram. I ordered them and eagerly cracked open the cereal box size case to find that the new memory was almost twice the length of the old. I went back and looked at other memory available in that frequency, and found that aside from notebook memory, there wasn't anything easily found to fit the slots available. I was curious if the manufacturers ever used laptop memory in small form factor desktops, and if not, how can I figure out an upgrade for this mutant computer. Thanks in advance for the help!

Yes, manufacturers sometimes use laptop parts in small form factor PCs. According to the memory configurator the L310 takes up to 2 GB of DDR2-667 MHz SODIMM memory.
