Try getting the manual from click here.

You're right it does have 2 RAM slots click here. G

There should be two slots located together - one underneath the other - otherwise you may only have one.

downloaded the manual but there doesnt seem to be one specifically for my laptop just general for the l300 series, and it only says about taking ram out of the bottom! damn this is annoying seems silly to change out 1gb of ram for 2gb when i can have 3!

If it's the same as my mates Toshiba which we have just upgraded, the two memory slots are next to each other, only a few mm apart, with one more or less on top of the other. Look closely and you will see it, it may be under the one with ram in it.
They are very small but I can assure you, it will be there!

Manual Page 114 of 165 pages refers to Slot A and Slot B - Slot B is lower than slot A which appears to be underneath - the usual arrangement for a laptop.
