Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a new Acer Aspire 5315-2698 with only 2- 512 MB RAM. I want to replace this with 2 1GB RAM. I need to access the existing chips. How di do this? The chips are presumably accessible on the bottom of the laptop, but the only panels which seem removale are the battery panel and another panel which the limited info in the handbook accompanying the computer says is the location of the hard drive. Even so, I loosened the two screws which seem to hold the panel down, from which I expected to find access, but the panel doesn't come up. Any suggestions?

How do i install a memory ram on my computer acer 5050


I don't know your model laptop, but most laptops have one or two memory slots on the bottom of the laptop behind a panel. Remove the panel to reveal the RAM slot/s.
When installing RAM, say 1Gb when there is two 256Mb RAM modules, then you need to replace the existing RAM with two 512Mb RAM modules. Make sure the new RAM is the same speed as the original RAM or faster RAM.

How do yo get to the memory and can I add 1GB to the existing1!GB or do I have to purchase a 2 GB memory...thanks


Most laptops have 2 memory slots, if you have 1 Gb of RAM using two 512 Mb RAM then you need to replace them with two 1 Gb RAM modules. If you have one RAM module 1 Gb then you only need to add another 1 Gb RAM module. Try to use the same make and speed RAM.

I have 512 mg of memory. Would there be a big difference if I add a 1 gb stick and keep the 512 mb , as oppose to removing the 512 mb and replace with two 1 gb sticks?


The performance of your laptop will improve if similar memory is placed in each of memory slot.If 1gb memory and 512mb memory are placed in available slot you will only get the performance of a single 1gb memory.but two 1gb memory are used performance will be similar to a 2gb ram or more.

RAM / HDD upgrading


u need 1gb Ram in total it is more than enuff for u u will never feel short after this and sure it will boost performance , u have 512 mb

if u have 2 chips of 256mb each then u need to buy 512mb X 2 chips and ur old ram will be left with u , luckily if u have 1 chip of 512 mb in ur system then u will save money like only buy 1 chip of 512mb but pls check the whole ratings of ur RAM and make of RAM is it samsung or hynix chips or what bcoz u will have compatibility issue in matching ur old and new rams pls let me know of whole specs written on RAM i can help u in matching

if u need urgent boost in performance then i will suggest replacing hard disk u will see a big change in loading OS and opening programs RAM is secondary in this stuff , but it is imp u can also go for 756 mb in total if u dont want to waste money if u have 2 chips of 256 each

secondly go for 160/250 GB 7200 RPM drive for top performance but 5400 RPM is still fast in ur notebook it is like 4200rpm according too my expertise

pls rate me FIXYA for my analysis if u like

Acer aspire rejecting memory at 2gb


so u have three chips am i right 1gb+1gb+256mb

basically its RAM compatibility issue check the ram specs is it ddr 2 with the specs that suits ur system or not

if u put 1 gb and 1gb it gives u issues then kindly check the DDR2 PC???? check is it 2100 4200 or 5300 what is ur orig ram rating try the same rating and then check pls also check the bus speed is it 533mhz or 667 or 800mhz

pls only use the compatible ram with ur laptop kingston are good with acer bcoz originally it comes with hynix chip and kingston chips nomally and sometimes samsung chips let me know about the detailed specs of all chips with all digits written on them

pls rate me fixya if ur problem is solved

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.
