Question about Acer Aspire 3690-2196 Notebook
Without looking at my laptop's max memory limitations I ordered two 2GB matched memory sticks off eBay. Before installing I realized that 2GB is the limit. What do recommend I do? What is the effect of adding more than limit? Should I just install one stick? Do I remove old 512 stick also? I'm a little confused at this point.
Note: Memory sticks were advertised as a 4GB upgrade for the 3690. I purchased from Krex Computers in IL. They are manufactured by Golden Mars (NB-DDR2-2GX2).
Don't try to load both sticks, your computer will not recognise anything more than the maximum allowed. And could cause problems on your laptop. Take out your 512mb stick and install the 2gb stick on its own.
I hopet his helps

Your laptop may just not recognize and not even boot up if you exceed the memory limit. It will not harm the laptop if you give it a try with the 4gb. However, sometimes caution is a good thing. It all depends on what you are trying to do on your acer. If you haven't already, remove the old memory sticks and replace it with the 1 2gb memory stick. Work with it for a little while (this should not give you a problem). If you feel the laptop is still too slow....let me know...I will look up the compatibility with the memory and your laptop.
