I install the extra memory stick in the acer desktop, with no problem as you help me in the past. But the computer kept re booting in the middle of a task. I dont know if i did it correctly or not. Are you suppose to tell the pc that it has extra memory so it can update itself or does it do it on its own?

Depends if you completed a Full Format on acer systems they have a back-up partition that contains a complete image of your hard drive that gets left un-touched the way to access this is by pressing ALT button and tapping the F10 button as soon as you turn it on keep on tapping the F10 button until you hear a constant beeping which means the buffer is full, if your computer has kept this partial it will tell you the process you need to do "on screen instructions"
If your computer does not have this then you will need to either use a wired connection and downloading the drivers directly using this link http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html
on some cases you wont have the ethernet controllers installed so its always best if you go to this site on a different computer and downloading the ethernet controllers on a removable memory stick to install it on the acer computer, as soon as this is done you will be able to use the acer site to download everything or the microsoft update to give you everything your computer has lost if you need further help use the comment below,
Yes, go to Acer site, locate your model for drivers. Download them into a folder on your other machine (the one with internet access). Then insert a USB stick and copy and paste the folder to the stick. Now just insert the stick in the Vista machine, drag the folder to your desktop and begin installing your drivers.
Here is a link to your drivers. Click on desktop / Aspire / M1640 then make sure to set the operating system to Vista Ultimate.
first off you will need to ensure that the memory that you have purchased is fully inserted in the slots next ensure that the memory is compatable with the motherboard that you have and your system
go to the manufactures web site of the computer and there will be a technical support option there with phone numbers to help you.
Also you may also want to swap slots with the memory sticks and see if this helps ok so please try these ideas. ok
best regards mike
just plug in the memory stick in the old computer and copy/paste files from the old computer to the memory stick (don't forget to look at the size the files might be over sized and the memory stick wont save them).
now after finishing the copy paste from the old computer to the memory stick, take the memory stick out and plug it in the new computer and copy/paste the files from the memory stick to the computer.
you may need to do these steps for few times if you have a large amount of data
It shouldnt be that difficult if your refering to extra Ram. Its just a stick, usually green with gold connectors on the bottom. If you remove the outer case or side of the pc (shutting it down and unplugging it first ofcourse) You can look in and should be able to see the original ram stick in the motherboard. Usually there are plastic clips on either end of the ram slot, push them all the way out, this opens the slot up, put the stick in with the metal parts down obviously, even apply pressure to both sides until the clips pop up locking the stick in place.
Hi, One or both of your RAMs have developed a fault. Change both RAM. After changing RAM pl format again and than try. Do not insert those faulty RAM again. Get your RAM tested by a software which is available on Microsoft site for free. Thanks Bhaskar
Assuming it's the correct type of memory, plugging it in is all you should need to do. When you turn it on for the first time the BIOS may detect the extra memory and ask you to accept the changes, but if it does just accept them and it should work fine.
no u dont need look @ the bios>if u insert it properly that should display it if it is not then teh card is bad>or the slot on the board if the solt works with the other card then there is no issue with the slot so replace it rate me solved if its help full thx
