It could be that one of the chips are faulty and/or are not exactly the same model because faulty chips and ones that have confliction can cause chips to not load properly. It could be that the socket for the ram is faulty as well. Usually you can install 4GB of RAM without the need of a BIOS update
Give this a try for the BIOS

The machine came with Up to 512 MB of DDR2 533 MHz memory, upgradeable to 2 GB using two soDIMM modules (dual-channel support), each 1 GB. If you have already or someone has increased the memory, you might have to remove a 512 chip to use a 1 GB chip.

I want upgrade my memory in my Acer Aspire mod. 1694 WLMi, how to do that and which kind of memory I mast buy?


It looks like you've got DDRII memory. According to Crucial http://crucial.com you can place up to 2GB of memory on your machine. (1GB in each slot) If you're unsure, remove one of your existing memory sticks to verify that it's DDRII.

Acer Aspire 3690-2970 Memory Upgrade


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.

RAM ON acer computers


Yes... just need to purchase the right stuff.

You need to determine if you have DDR or DDRII. And then determine if you have one stick of 512, or if you have 2 sticks of 256. Once you know this information, visit your local Best Buy or purchase somewhere online, a memory upgrade. Such as 2 sticks at 512mb for 1 gig total. Assuming you have two memory slots, should have anyway.

DDRII is fairly cheap right now, be a good time to upgrade. DDR on the other hand, is still a little more expensive.
