Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
I am upgrading the RAM in my laptop. The Acer E-settings management utility included with the purchase of this thing says it supports a maximum 4gb. I bought two sticks of 2gb Crucial brand memory. Either stick works well in either slot on the motherboard but the machine stops working when I try to install both sticks at the same time. Do I need to change something to make both work or is the maxonly two gig?
Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot so you can install modules one at a time, and you can mix different densities of modules in your computer. But if your computer supports dual-channel memory configurations, you should install in identical pairs (preferably in kits) for optimal performance How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS hope this helps pls appreciate by rating as fixyaa.thanks and Godbless.
