SOURCE: RAM

Hi, I checked your computer out, and you can install 4GB of DDR2 laptop RAM, upto a max speed of 667MHz.

You have two slots, so you can do this via two x 2GB DDR2 667MHz sodimms. I choose Kingston, as it seems to be the most compatible that I've seen so far.

However, you are likely using a 32bit operating system, so despite fitting 4GB of RAM, Windows may only indicte 3.25GB, or 3.5GB, or thereabouts, due to the fact that a 32bit operating system cannot address more than 4GB of memory addresses. This will not be a problem, and the extra memory will still add to performance.

Though I also suggest that you disable unnecessary Vista processes to make your computer much faster again.

See www.speedyvista.com for a list of what proceses you can, and cannot disable.

Regards,

Erik.

Make sure you remove the battery before removing or inserting the ram :)

No worries about it not being dual channel as most laptop arent.

DDr (double data rate) ram runs at 200MHz but is actually 400 one the double data rate is applied so they are one and the same :)

I hope its a sodimm stick of ram that you bought? They are about 3i inches long rather than 6 like desktop ram?

SOURCE: What RAM for Acer Aspire 5613AWLMI 533 or 677Mhz?

http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Aspire%205610

That being said, I'll make the following comments that will hopefully answer your questions.

The maximum memory for your computer is 4 GB. However, if you are using a 32-bit operating system only 3.7 will be available for the system to use minus however much else you are sharing for the video.

Using 667 memory won't make your processor run any faster; the 533 MHz FSB is set in the processor and using 667 memory won't make the memory run any faster either; it will only run at 533. If you do get just 1 2 GB chip to make 2.5 GB total, make sure it is the same speed as the other chip. Usually it's not an issue but sometimes it can be.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

SOURCE: i changed my1G ram in my asus 900ah to a 2g CrucialDDR2

As reported on the EeeUser forum, the EeePC 900 is somewhat picky with RAM upgrades. If the RAM chip is not exactly spec’d like the stock RAM module, then the computer would be prone to freezing, especially when switching between battery and mains power.

Also, note that the RAM module that came with the EeePC 900 is an AData PC2-3200 (running at 400 MHz) with part number DOGC1A08342. I find it strange that the chip is a 400 MHz one. Even the original 512MB chip that came with my EeePC 701 was a 667 MHz one!
This means if you plan to upgrade your 900’s RAM, better make sure the module is compatible!


P.S.: If this information was helpful, please rate this solution.

My compaq dx2450 wont register ram and its only about 8 months old i bought direct from hp but they wont help i really need to upgrade my ram


try adding one ram stick upgrade at a time, while leaving one original in the system till it boots and recognises the increase. repeat until finished adding all the new ram. if these measures dont work, its possible you have purchased ram that is not matching to the upgradable standards of your board. its important when adding ram to insure you match the ram speed with your replacements upgrade.

I want to upgrade my procesor to faster procesor.


Upgrading processor is not likely a practical solution; find out the motherboard manufacturer and contact their site for more information. As to upgrading the motherboard, you'll have to know what kind/size of board your system will require. If you don't have lots of experience, this process is very risky.

Frankly, the cheapest way to upgrade your computer is to buy a used and working product with Windows XP already installed. Go to http://craigslist.com, select your city, and search for a brand name you trust. I've bought DOZENS of used computers very cheap that way (I'm writing this on a $2,200 Dell Latitude D620 I bought fiv months old for $500, who needed the cash!)

If you upgraded from XP to Vista and didn't exceed the minimum system requirements for Vista, then that is why your laptop is "struggling to work". You should have done a compatibility check before the upgrade to see what upgrades you might have needed to install Vista, such as RAM (usually adding the maximum amount of RAM that your MotherBoard will accept/recognize will get you going with Vista. Otherwise to get your laptop back to speed you can reinstall XP (XP runs on a lot less resources than Vista requires). You mention a graphics card, and I can't imagine one that would require you to upgrade to Vista yet, though I could be wrong.
Good Luck.
