I am trying to help my kid who has recently grown interested in electronics. We are planning to upgrade the RAM for my 2007 Sony Vaio laptop. The plan is to convert this to his first Linux laptop or a Chrome book. The computer is in a pretty good shape otherwise, shiny and has no other broken parts. It also has an extra battery.

Specific name of the model is Sony Vaio - PCG-7v2L, also known as VGN-FE880E.

We have come up against a small problem. The current memory can be expanded to 4GB from 2GB. However the 2GB DDR2 SODIMM PC5300 VAIO MEMORY from Qimonda RAM module takes 1.5V, and I cannot seem to find any compatible 2GB DDR2 chips that only take 1.5 V. If I go to Crucial, Kingston or any such similar websites. most DDR2 memory is rated at 1.8 volts.

So if you have suggestions on compatible RAM specs as well as places to buy them, I would really appreciate your help.
