Question about Computers & Internet
How do I install additional ram in Acer Aspire AMD Athlon LE 1600 2.2GHz Desktop Computer
Putting RAM in is a piece of cake. I'll explain below.
What's more edgy is to know how much ram you need, and which kind.
Not all ram sticks will fit in your computer.
You have 1 GB ram. If you open your side pannel, you should see the stick of ram in there.
According to the computer's description on the web, you should have 3 more slots available.
The ram you need to buy NEEDS to be DDR2. You could find cheaper DDR ram (DDR1), but it would not fit. Make sure you buy DDR2.
At the moment, this is what you have :
Installed Size 1 GB / 8 GB (max)
Technology DDR2 SDRAM
Memory speed 800 MHz
Memory specification compliance PC2-6400
For optimised performance, you should get identical pairs of ram sticks,
If you have windoes XP 32-bits, the maximum RAM you can have is 3GB.
In any case, unless you video editing or computer hungry tasks, 3GB is plenty for the average user with windows XP.
If you have Vista 64bits, you can have up to 8GB. You PC supports 8GB.
What I'd do is install a pair of identical 1GB ram sticks in there, or one stick of 2GB, to bring it up to 3GB.
If you have pairs, make sure you put them in sockets with identical colors. On most boards, slots have colors (yellow, black or blue) ((yeah, black is not a color).
You need to put the new ones both in slots of the same color, to enable faster performance.
INSTALLING THE RAM ONCE YOU BOUGHT IT:
Takes about 15 minutes.
2 When you don't have to read the webpage :P
