I have Acer Aspire E500 (ASE500-UP801M) running Win XP Media Center edition, 1G RAM. It is too slow. Q1. Could I add another RAM stick to it and how much maximum could I add? Q2. How do I know the Bus


Test your computer using a brand new hard drive. 1GB memory is enough. I am sure this is a software problem (messy registry or problematic apps or malware) or space problem (the hard drive is almost full).

How to install hard drive


First unplug power and leads including internet, then you will need a screw driver to get the side cover off, make sure to touch a bare metal piece to prevent static discharge. unclip the sata cable and power from the hard drive, unscrew the fixture screws holding the hard drive in place, remove and replace with new hard drive....or of you are adding another for extra storage look for a vacant bay to house the new drive, there should be a spare power lead for the drive but you may need to purchase another sata lead if you dont have one, attatch the sata lead to the motherboard then attatch the other end to the hard drive then the power lead. Close the lid and re-boot, the new drive should be picked up by windows 7 or vista, if you have installed a new drive with no operating system you will need a bootable op disc

Honestly, it could be almost anything. It takes a few software tests in order to see if it is in fact hardware related.

I would recommend some tests.

And although it's not free, PC Toolses, pop out the memory and make sure it's set right etc.s Registry Mechanic

Chances are this could fix a variety of things.

More than likely hardware related but if you upgraded to Win 7 without formatting, something could still exist on the hard drive causing this.

If all else fails, open the ca

Pc doesn't boot stops at set up


Your computer is having some problems at POST. Try removing one of the memory dimms you have installed. In case you have one leave it like that and remove Hard Drives, optical drives, any usb devices on the back and try again. In case it boots start attaching the hard drive and try again.. if it boots, add the optical drive and so on until you get the failure.
I hope this helps.

How to repair and remove blue screen in Acer Aspire M5641


The resolution depends on *why* you're getting the blue screen. Start by disconnecting all of the drives, USB devices, and other peripherals. Connect just the monitor, power up, and see if it blue screens. If that works, next add just one RAM module and see if it blue screens. Then, add just the main hard drive and see if it blue screens. Keep adding one device at a time until you find the one that's causing the blue screen error. Once you've identified the bad part, get back to us, and we can discuss diagnosing or replacing it.
