If you use the memory checker at Crucial.com, and see what that laptop needs. It is a great tool for this exact problem.
You are looking for a PC number, ie PC5300, or PC4200 etc. Almost certainly it will be the one you have mentioned in your post, but its always good to check.
DON'T BUY FROM CRUCIAL!!! There are many places to buy their memory cheaper.
Hope this helps.

nope my model number is not mentioned on the checker any other ideas??

I have looked for you and your laptop is also called a satelitte L300.

The ram you have in your post is what you need.

Hope this helps.

ok but the model after is l300-1FL does that matter

I just checked against 5 different L300/I300 series satelitte laptops, they all use

DDR2 667MHz (PC2-5300) 200-PIN SODIMM

So order that, you are good to go. Might have a maximum of 2gb, or maybe 4gb ram, but when the laptop arrives you can search using crucial or orcalogic.co.uk and they can scan your laptop and tell you.

Good luck. Hope I've helped.
