I have an Acer Aspire T180 and would like to upgrade the memory and add a wi-fi card. can you advise what cards I need to purchase?


Memory:
Looks like the Aspire T180 takes DDR2 533/667/800 memory. This is pretty easy to upgrade. Check to see how many memory slots your computer has (Probably 4, might only have 2). You should probably just replace what you have with new memory.
I recommend this memory:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231122
It is 2x 2GB modules. 4GB of RAM is a good amount of RAM to have, you will see a noticeable performance increase.

WiFi:
I would recommend a USB wifi adaptor. It is easy to instal and most ones work well, even the cheap ones. Just stick it in the back of your computer and forget it it's even there.

I recommend this one, I have been using it for 2 years and have had no problems.

Some motherboards are only upgradable to their allotted amount that board may only handle up to 2 gigs of RAM which is a shame. But this is the way it is. That is why I always check the board memory capacity before I buy computer boards or RAM for them. The beeps indicate error on the slots for the RAM that is why you can start up when you remove ram one at a time and replace. So use the allotted amount of RAM for that board specification or get another mother board that can handle more than 2 gigs of RAM. Sorry for the loss. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Memory Upgrade


I believe the max you can go with per slot is 1gb.

This is copied from the Acer site:

Up to 4 GB of DDR2 533/667/800 MHz SDRAM

Acer Aspire Memory problem


The read speed of your new memory is not compatible with your motherboard. It is a higher rate than allowed. The reason why it works when you have one of your old chips installed is because your PC will automatically drop the higher rate chip down to the one that is working. The reason it does not drop both new chips down to a suitable rate is because it has nothing to guide it like your compatible chip does. Always check the MHz on RAM chips and compare that with the acceptable rates listed on your motherboard specs. The good news is you can probably sell those chips and have money left over when you find upgraded compatible memory that is sure to be cheaper since it is slower.

Memory installation


bev,
all the DIM's must be of same type and same size to work, otherwise it creates problem, like no boot, boot with lowest memory etc.

There is no problem in your PC, its technical issue you can not use two ore more different type RAM at the same time in a motherborad.

Thanks

Doesn't boot with 3Gb of ram....


Your board can only handle 2Gb of total memory.
2 x DDR2 SDRAM DIMMs, Dual Channel DDR2 533/667/800.
Check your manual.

Memory module


Your motherboard supports 533MHz memory modules, no more. If you put anything higher in, it will work, but only at the speed of 533MHz, so there's not much point in aiming any higher. Just make sure what you're buying is a DDR2 533MHz memory module, and it's best to get them in increments of 2. If you have 4 slots on your motherboard, get another 2x512MB modules of RAM. If you're running Windows Vista, it might be worth considering 2x1GB modules. I think that pretty much covers your question, if you have anything else to ask, feel free to reply.
