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,

How do I add memory to my acer travelmate P256M?

You should check Internal memory (REM) installed, Internal memory type: probably DDR3L-SDRAM, Maximum internal memory: 16 GB, and number of memory slots available and occupied
Problem is tha compatibility of memory and parity requiremens Means if you have 4 Gb wirh 2 x 2 Gb, not all boards let yoi nstall an 8 gb Memory with an existing 2 Gb memory
The other issue if you have one 4 Gb DDR3L-SDRAM does your board accespt other specificacion of 4 Gb memory or must be the same.
You should check this info with someone who has the technical specificacions of your MB

For Acer Aspire 4720z what will be the Maximum support of memory? existing 1+1 GB.Can we expand it to 4 GB ??

The best way you can check the maximum memory this system can hold is to go to and run the free memory scan tool.
This tool reads the memory in the machine, which slots they are in, how many open slots if any and what size the memory installed is now. It will then list any memory changes you can make in the system.
You should realize that unless you are using Vista or Windows 7, the maximum memory a system can utilize, is 2 GB.

Acer Extensa 5620Z will not work with more than 2GB RAM??

parrotheadpc is incorrect in stating "you can only have a total of 2048 mb installed".

the 5620Z accepts 2 x 2 GB SODIMM RAM, the machine boots and shows the full 4 GB in the BIOS.

the full 4 GB works with the Ubuntu x64 installer.

Windows XP x32 goes BSOD on startup.

Windows 7 x64 install from DVD fails with same BSOD error.

conclusion: this is a Windows-Extensa 5620Z incompatibility that would require a fix by ACER at the BIOS level.

question: there may be specific memory modules 2 x 2 GB which do work--anyone have it work with 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.
