According to the specs I found for the Acer Ferrari 3000, there are TWO slots for RAM -- and both are full, by default. If yours is configured that way, you would need to remove both DIMMs and replace them with the capacity you want. IOW, take out the 512MB (or whatever you have now) and install two 1GB DIMMs -- to total 2GB.

I hope this helps! If it does, please rate the solution. My goal is always FixYa or Helpful, never TFT or IA. Regards,

Gateway desktop fx 7026 memory issue, has 4 slots came with( 2 )2 gb sticks = 4 gigs it came with. when i add 2 extra gig it doesnt recognize.


the specs i read says 8 gig is the max. here is what it says for RAM
RAM
  • Installed Size 4.0 GB / 8.0 GB (max)
  • Technology DDR2 SDRAM
  • Memory Speed 667.0 MHz
  • Form Factor DIMM 240-pin
  • Features Dual channel memory architecture
  • Configuration Features 2 x 2 GB

check to make sure you have added the right type of memory. also look at your user manual. it should tell you where and how to place the added sticks. sometimes they have to be added in pairs or have to be in specific slots. also if you dont have the manual it is on the gateway site. you should type in your model and serial number and get all the info you need.

RAM Upgrade


How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found at http://www.crucial.com/kb/answer.aspx?qid=4251

Not only is there a maximum amount of memory that your computer motherboard can accept, there is also a maximum amount of memory that your operating system (OS) can accept. For instance, when you install 4GB of memory in a 32-bit Windows system (the most common version; 64-bit systems are typically used by high-end users), your system reports only 3GB or 3.5GB.
First , we can assure you, there isn't a problem with the memory. While Windows allows for 4GB of memory to be addressed, it does not equate to 4GB of physical memory. Some of the memory (regardless of how much you have installed) is reserved for use by the devices that you are using, such as a graphics card, PCI card, integrated network connections, etc, meaning it is unavailable for use as normal main memory. Upon startup, your system calculates the amount of memory needed for these devices; if you haven't maxxed out the memory in your system, it's invisible to you, and all your physical memory (the installed RAM) is available for use. However if you've maxxed out the DRAM in your system, this amount will be deducted from your physical memory, so you can't use 100% of your DRAM. The maximum memory limitation varies by operating system, For instance, the 4GB memory limitation doesn't exist in 64-bit versions of Windows.

I want to purchase the TM 3270, but it only has 1GB. I'd really like to have 2GB, but can't afford the extra cost, seems to be 300 more . So, I wondered how you add 1 GB to the 3270??? Cost of doing...


Okay, I don't believe someone wants 300 more for an extra GB. You can upgrade it to 4 GB for just over $100, 2 GB is around $52. On the bottom of the laptop will be a compartment with one or maybe two screws in it. There should be a little picture of memory next to the screw(s). Loosen the screws and remove the door, there is your memory. You may have to remove a chip to install the 2 GB chip or, if it already has a 1 GB chip in it and one slot is free, then you can just purchase another GB and install it.

Acer Aspire T-180 Memory Upgrade question


Hello, You might be able to add 2GB more. 1GB per slot. You need to get the model # off your motherboard and verify what the maximum amount of memory it will support. 1GB per slot would be 4GB total but some Operating systems will only support 3GB. So some might be wasted if that is the case. You would need to use the same memory type. So if existing is PC2-4300, use the same. Hope this helps.
