Question about Acer Extensa 4230 Notebook
My laptop 1gb RAM, i want to increase 2 GB, is it possible, what is serial number for number.
You can upgrade the RAM providing you have the slots available.
The maximum supported RAM in windows 7 is 4GB. You will find the serial number on the bottom of the laptop, possibly in the battery bay. You can use the following scanner to check the required RAM.

Thanks for choosing fixya.com
Your not alone in this type of problem. When it comes to computer (laptop especially) they usually have a "Max allowed ram" most times its listed in the back of the manual in small print. Its a way to keep people buying new computers (if your into the conspiracy theories)
Chances are even a bios upgrade would not fix your problem. Mostly BIOS upgrades add support for new boot options, plug and play support, and fixes to bugs in older versions.
You can check aspires/acers website for updates www.acer.com
If they have an update it will comes with documentation as to what the update does.
Hope this helps you out.

SOURCE: Ram Memory
I did this 2 days ago on my gf's aspire 5315-2153 (walmart special $348). the underside panel has four tiny screws which must be removed and then the fun begins. The plastic panel is large and doesn't want to be removed. After 20 minutes of cursing, i was able to get it out with two hands and a small screwdriver. The plastic panel has about 7-8 tabs which also hold it in place. The original two memory modules must be removed and the two new ones installed in their place. i bought crucial memory from newegg.com (CT2KIT12864AC667) for $17 delivered (took a week to get) which was much cheaper than buying it direct from crucial.com Save the old memory modules just in case you have a problem with the new ones. After putting them in, I restarted the computer and it booted up fine. No BIOS changes or any of that were necessary. So for $17 and about 30 minutes, this lappy is now running strong with 2gb instead of 1gb. Initial impression is that it boots up faster and shuts down faster but that is about it in terms of improvement!!!

First, you would need the manual for that Acer 9301awsmi to fine out if the laptop can take 3 or 4gbs.
Second, see how many slots does the laptop have. This way you will how to place then. Like 2x2g or 1gb and 2gb,.etc.

Dear Sir According to your problem regarding RAM upgradation issue,here is the solution
Acer Aspire 5315-2326 laptop comes with following RAM specification
According to you your laptop already had 1gb RAM,so you can buy another 1GB RAM of DDR2 SDRAM - 667.0 MHz,only if your Laptop had two RAM slots.If it had only one RAM slot you have to purchase 2GB DDR2 SDRAM(frequency may differ). And also your laptop cant support more than 2gb RAM.
I think it deffinately solves your problem
