Can't upgrade an Acer Aspire 3000 notebook to 2 gb

I recently tried to upgrade my Acer aspire notebook to 2 GB of ram. I bought two 1GB chips and had them installed professionally. When they tested it after they were installed they found that my BIOS setup would only allow a maximum of 1GB of RAM. Is there a way I can upgrade my BIOS settings to allow 2GB's or RAM?

    Have an Acer Aspire 3003LMI and after installing the 2 gb memory, the laptop won't start up properly. Any help to solve the problem would be appreciated.

    Actually, after viewing the specs of my laptop, I found that this model is capable of RAM over 1 GB. The factory BIOS settings allow up to 2 GB. I suspect that when I brought my laptop in to NCIX, the particular stick they were trying to install was damaged. I recently installed a 256MB stick along with the 1GB stick I had in already and it recognized them both, no problem.

    For others experiencing this problem, I would double check that the RAM is not damaged. Here is a link to the specs for the Acer Aspire 3000 notebook.

Acer has a BIOS upgrade to recognize memory over 1 gig. You can get it and the BIOS flasher (Winflash) at their website.

Thanks for choosing fixya.com

Your not alone in this type of problem. When it comes to computer (laptop especially) they usually have a "Max allowed ram" most times its listed in the back of the manual in small print. Its a way to keep people buying new computers (if your into the conspiracy theories)
Chances are even a bios upgrade would not fix your problem. Mostly BIOS upgrades add support for new boot options, plug and play support, and fixes to bugs in older versions.

You can check aspires/acers website for updates www.acer.com
If they have an update it will comes with documentation as to what the update does.

Hope this helps you out.

I cont play 3d games graphic card is there in acer aspire 4720z


* The system configuration of Acer Aspire 4720Z PC Notebook is :

160 GB or larger hard disk drive / 5-in-1 card reader / 512 MB or 1GB DDR2 533 MHz DIMM module / Intel Pentium dual-core mobile processor technology T2310 (1 MB L2 cache, 1.46, 533 MHz FSB), Mobile Intel GL960 Express Graphics Chipset.

* Your system have "Mobile Intel GL960 Express Graphics Chipset" graphics accelerator card embedded in the motherboard. Like most of the laptops/notebooks, there is no room for upgrading the graphics card in the motherboard!

* But you can upgrade the RAM upto 2 GB using two DDR2 DIMM memory modules.

* If you want to play 3D games with better performance, switch to Windows XP SP2 and upgrade the RAM!

* If you want to upgrade the memory (RAM), you can check this site : http://www.laptoppartsexpert.com/c-60093-acer-aspire-4720-series-as4720z.html

please rate this advice if it helps

I have Acer laptop Aspire 5570z module Zr1 with memory 1GB I want to increase memory 2GB or 3GB Is it possible or not What will be the expenditure?


Your laptop's RAM is upgradeable to up to 4 GB using two DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM modules.

So your upgrade options here are:
1. Buy a 1 GB DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM module & install it to get a total RAM of 2 GB (Price around US$ 25).
2. Buy a 2 GB DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM module & install it to get a total RAM of 3 GB (Price around US$ 45).

How much maximum ram does acer aspire 4520 support? and is it fine if we have one ram of 2 gb and the other of 1 gb?


Your machine currently has this ram (1GB DDR2 667 SDRAM)

You can upgrade to 4GB DDR2 800MHz ram, sell old one off.
If you use old ram you must exactly match to old in speed, ie 2GB ddr2 667 SDRAM.

I recommend renew with matched larger faster ram 2 + 2 GB DDR800

How to change add RAM to Acer Aspire


first check with www.acer.com to see that expansion is possible.

all computers like their memory upgrades in sets, instead of singles(like changing both front tires on your car or truck)..so compatibility among the two is more vital than matching to existing ram cards.
