Question about Acer Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi. I have a TravelMate 5620 which has a sticker on it saying 5625WSMi. It had 1Gb memory. I've purchased 2 x 2Gb RAM as found on internet it can handle up to 4Gb. I replaced the 1Gb RAM with one of the new 2Gb and that is great - I can see I now have 2Gb. My question is where do I slot in the other 2Gb RAM? I can't see anywhere to put this - I've opened all 4 sections underneath the laptop - one looks like an HHD, one the CPU?, the one I put the RAM in, and a smaller one that would not fit the RAM chip - I can't see where to put it. Regards, Gareth.

Sometimes, one memory slot can be on the opposite side of the motherboard, under the keyboard. Try removing the keyboard and look under there. If that doesn't help, let me know and I'll look it up in the service manual.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Hi guys, i have installed 2 sdrams pc-133 512mb,together 1gb, but yhe bios and the system shows me only the half memory,whyyyyyyyy


Are you sure that both sticks of RAM are properly "seated"?

How much memory is found when only one stick is used?
How much memory is found when only the other stick is used?

Which motherboard? Some very-old motherboards only support a maximum of 256MB per slot.

How many memory-chips are on each stick of RAM?
If you have purchased "high-density" memory (small number of memory-chips),
and your motherboard only supports "low-density" memory, then only 1/2 or 1/4 of the actual RAM will be used.

Upgraded RAM, Now CPU Says "No Input Signal. Go To Power Save."


I would check the documentation to ensure you purchase the correct memory. If you purchase the wrong memory type, it could cause issues like these.

Problem with upgrading my acer extensa 5620z memory to 4GB


Hi there.
I recommend you get another stick of SODIMM to replace what seems to be the faulty stick.
If you are using XP or Vista X86 (32bit) then the system will only recognize 2.8 - 3GB of memory, only 64bit operating systems recognize the full 4GB.


Good luck ad thanks for using FixYa!!

Max Ram PCG FRV37


If the 1GB sticks fit and you are able to insert them it will not do any harm to your PC. However, it will only use the max amount stated in the manual. This is hardwired into the motherboard so there is no get around.

TravelMate 800 memory speed


Hello,

Probably not. Not in laptops where the northbridge chip is hardwired to run with one ram speed. However, you can try a faster piece of RAM from a friend. Better yet, is to go to Crucial.com or Samsung.com and use their memory configurator to find out for sure.

Upgrading acer laptop RAM


Hi,
You Can Actually Upgrade This To 2 Gig Memory.
Each Slot Will Take 1 A Gig Strip.
I,d suggest Buying another 256 mb Strip, To Put Into Slot 2.
Or Buy a 512mb ( Half Gig ) Which Will Give you 750mb With your Existing Strip Already In There. ** Recommend 1 Gigabyte Max** 2 gig of Ram in This Baby Would Probably Start Glowing.
You Can Buy DDR/266/333 In 256/512/1 Gig Strips. These Are Commonly Known As SD-RAM-Modules.
