    I have the same problem with my Acer Aspire 5584WXMi. I was able to upgrade it from 2GB to 3GB RAM but when I tried to upgrade to 2 pieces of DDR2 PC667 MHz 2GB, the screen downgraded to 2 MB at 600x800. Can't find any solution so far. The manual and specs state that it can support up to 4 GB of RAM but it doesn't work so far.

    Thanks for any help.

All ram is not created equal.

You should check on the Laptops manufacturer website support pages. They should have a list of know ram manufacturers that have been tested with your laptop.

Check in the manual to see if the ram may have to be installed in pairs.

Also, be sure the new ram is seated properly in the slot.

The ram may not be fully compatible with your laptop.

Problem with upgrading my acer extensa 5620z memory to 4GB


Hi there.
I recommend you get another stick of SODIMM to replace what seems to be the faulty stick.
If you are using XP or Vista X86 (32bit) then the system will only recognize 2.8 - 3GB of memory, only 64bit operating systems recognize the full 4GB.


Good luck ad thanks for using FixYa!!

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!

Acer aspire 5600 does not boot up


If you upgraded RAM to 4GB that is exactly what is going to happen. The ACER 5601 AWMLi does NOT support 4GB. Flashing the bios will NOT solve this problem.

Upgrading Ram/Bios


You do have to have a 64 bit OS so that windows will recognise 4 Gig of Ram.

I have Vista Ultimate 64 Bit and 4 gig of ram in my laptop. I upgraded the OS Before I upgraded the Ram, this might be something that Microsoft Address in the near future. so if you dont want the expense of buying Vista X64 then hold off for a little bit. Although 64 Bit doesn make more sense when you are getting to the limits of 32 bit

Upgrading my laptop's processor from celeron 540 to 560


there is no way you can upgrade the VGA on a laptop. You can upgrade everything else. But tis always better and cheaper to get a new one.

check with the cost of the celeron 560 and the 4gb + the 250 gb together.

but how much a new computer cost? so its your choice...
