Question about Computers & Internet
You can upgrade it to 2 GB. For me it worked out pretty well because the computer (which also happens to be Acer Aspire L31) really reads 2 GB.
Probably because of the new memory. I installed both 1-GB modules in the same pack or brand. Yours probably be different brands. That might be the problem why it only reads 1 GB -- the computer can't read the other module (either the new or the previous-bought module).

The Dell Optiplex 270 has dual channel RAM so it has to be installed in pairs. It has 4 slots for RAM. If you add a single 1 GB card the system will not recognize it - dual channel RAM needs to be installed in pairs which is why your original RAM was split into two modules. The pairs are slots 1-3 and 2-4 (you will see they have different color clips). Put the modules in slots 1 and 3.
