I am not specifically familiar with your model, however I suggest you look for the panel with just one screw. I think you may be looking at the wrong panel.. This panel is probably about 2" x 3", and typically on the bottom. Removing a wrong panel will not do any harm, just re-position it, and replace the screw.

I can only add 2Gig of Ram on my Acer Aspire t180 XP. The screen flickers when I add more. Help


The usual cause of screen flicker is a lack of power getting to the graphics card. The best way to check this is to remove another component to see if the flicker stops. If it does stop you need to upgrade the power supply.

Upgrading the power supply is a simple job. Let me know if you need more information on replacing the power supply.

I bought a 2gig kit of memory from Dell for a precision 450 and it's only seeing 1gb in the Bios. Upgraded the Bios and it's still only seeing 1gb


You memory slots have primary and secondary slots. Switch the old memory with the new one and put the 1Gb in the secondary slot.

Can't Find 2nd ram to upgrade memory


Sometimes Laptops will have 1 slot internal and 1 slot on the bottom side thats readily accessible via a removable plate.

You'll be perfectly find with the 1GB internal and adding the 2GB to replace the 1GB stick on the bottom side.
Also Windows XP and VISTA 32bit can only address and use about 3.25GB of ram anyway.

Recently Microsoft released a patch that's kind of tricking consumers, People calling and complaining so much to MS and PC manufacturers about not seeing all their ram when they installed 4GB so they Released a fix that shows it as 4GB but still the 32bit OS cant use the extra over 3GB

How to Upgrade to max RAM


The Acer Aspire One can be upgraded to a total RAM of 2Gigs. This will allow for you to upgrade to Windows XP Pro and also to Microsoft Office 2003 as there is no version of Office Professional. If you would like more specifics on your particular model, please look here. http://www.laptopmag.com/review/laptops/acer-aspire-one-10-inch.aspx?page=3

Upgrading RAM is a fairly simple process. As this is a fairly compact laptop in design, you will have to upgrade to a new 2Gig RAM module and basically discard (or sell) the one you end up removing. In order to find out the type of RAM you'll need, remove the cover as show in the picture and the info for the existing RAM should be written on it.

Good luck!

I'm trying to upgrade the memory on my acer aspire 5315. I've removed the 4 screws from the large cover but the cover won't come up easily and i'm afraid to force it.


whao... NEVER force something like that ESPECIALLY around the memory... you know you're supposed to be grounded before touching the RAM, right?... touch the case of a computer (on like the power supply) just before you work on it and as long as the computer was grounded... and turned on... you'll be grounded too... stay off the carpet at this point... try to do it in like a kitchen or something... or you can ruin the RAM... try sliding the cover in all different directions... you may just have to get Acer tech support on the line... I've upgraded Laptop Ram before, but laptops are different... try looking it up on the web... for a manual... I had to use one for an HP...

I have an acer extensa 5620-6830 with 1g memory on a dual core which means I only have 512m for each core. Right? What is the most memory I can add and not having done this before what kind of memory chip...


DUAL CORE refers to the amount or cores your PROCESSOR has, Memory indicates the TOTAL amount for the WHOLE SYSTEM, NOT the cores or the precessor. You should be able to max out your memory @ 4gb, but check your machine specs at Acer website for Max amount and type.
