Question about Acer Computers & Internet
Only runs with 1 sodimm ram other port not working
Probably a faulty ram socket. I have seen a few acer's with the same problem. There is a sort of fix but it's not normal. It was to insert something between the top ram board and the plastic cover just to press down on the ram board, not loads of pressure but enough to connect it properly.
Do it at your own risk though.

SOURCE: Extensa 4620 memory upgrade
According to the manual up to 4gb on two .soDIMM for model ex4220 only.SO yes. I would take them back and get one 2Gb strip. Download and read the manual first, in case I missed somethng.

The Extensa 5620z comes with 1GB of DDR2 memory. That's two sticks of 512MB. This unit technically supports 4GB; 2 x 2GB modules. However, unless you're running a 64-bit operating system (if you have to ask how you'd know, trust me... you're not) then only about 3GB will be usable. There's no fix for this, it's just a fact. All standard 32-bit operating systems are coded this way
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

did you try swapping the order of the memory sticks in the machine? for example, if you put stick 'a' in slot 1, and then put stick 'b' in slot 2, did you reverse it and put stick 'a' in slot 2 and stick 'b' in slot 1? sounds corny but i have fixed many computer memory issues in that way. also - have you verified you did not get a bad memory stick? can you boot (and will the computer recognize) stick 'a', then replace it with stick 'b'? try that and post what you find out here.
