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

N'JOY!

Hello there! I wanted to upgrade my ACER ASPIRE T180 Mobo: MCP61M-AM-6A61KE11C-00 I want to upgrade the stock CPU : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3800+ Into an AMD Anthlon 64X2. Am2+ socket also...


AM2+ mainboard will mean that you will be able to install AM2 and AM3 CPU's. That includes Athlon 64 X2 and Athlon 2 X2 to X4.

My advice would be to look at an Athlon 2 X2 250 3.0GHz CPU at least. It will be able to run on DDR2 or DDR3 RAM, it depends which socket you install it in. AM2+ is DDR2 and AM3 is DDR3.
Try and get an AM3 mainboard if you can it is worth it, ASUS is good. However then you may need new RAM. You may want a new Graphics card as well. Go to a computer store or use the net to look around and learn more about the AMD computer. Computer stores build special gaming computers, very good looking and great performers. It all depends on your budget.

Take care and Happy Gaming!

Choppy pages while scrolling and watching movies. how to fix?


That sounds like it has got the wrong speed RAM installed. Too slow for the processor or there is a problem with the display driver.
Check there are no conflicts in Device manager.
Hope this helps.

How to upgrade acer aspire m1100 ram


It is actually pretty simple, just remove either screws or fasteners holding the case on. On that model it may even just be the side panel, which would be 2 screws/fasteners. Here is a video that explains the process. http://videos.howstuffworks.com/howstuffworks/26-how-to-install-ram-to-a-desktop-computer-video.htm Thanks,

2 As for the graphic card you seem to know a little about computers so you can install and pci express x 16 graphics card that only needs one slot but remember some need power and this mean you my have to upgrade your power supply.So really you can by any single slot pci express graphics card for your computer so it comes down to how much you want to spend.
3.Ok for ram your max will be 4 gbs most likely ddr2 which mean that you have 4 ram spot in your computer.
hope this help please vote for me.
