unlikely, unless your really knoweldgeable about the motherboards circuit layout and are handy with a soder gun, or know someone that is.

you would have to take the motherboard out-and identify which circuit is fried (the most likely cause of it not working) and soder it back together. As far as which circuit, no way of knowing that until you get it apart.

Older laptop, looks like DDR2 memory, assuming its dual channel, I would say a safe bet is 2 gig. You might get 4, but I sort of doubt it. Something like this ought to work http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220229

 

You can try a 4 gig stick like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220495 but I wouldnt count on it working, at least not without emailing Acer and finding out.
