Question about Acer Aspire 3610 Notebook
In my Acer Aspire 3640, I just installed 1 gb Kingston DDR2 PC-4200 on top of the 512 mb that came with the system. It should be compatible ram, but it only identifies as 895 mb both in the Bios and in Windows. I tried taking the 512 out, and tried swapping the slots, Nothing has worked yet.
I've been looking to see if there's someone else with this problem, a Bios update... Anything
So far no luck.
Anyone know why this thing isn't recognizing the upgrade?
There is nothing wrong and your install is OK.
The laptop has used some of the RAM as video RAM for the video card that is part of the motherboard.
You should have noticed that with a single 512Mb RAM you would not have the full 512Mb RAM available to you, the video has grabbed 128Mb of RAM.

Tips for a great answer:
Part Number: AspireOneAOA150 Aspire One AOA150
RAM / Max RAM 512 MB onboard DDR2 533 MHz SDRAM single channel with onboard SDRAM and one soDIMM slot, with up to 1 GB/1.5 GB using one 512 MB/1 GB soDIMM module
if you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.
first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system
hope this helps
