Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook - major memory problem!!

I tried to upgrade the memory in my laptop. There is a 256MB Samsung stick in there already, so i bought a 1GB Kingston stick to go in the other slot (Kingston and Samsung are supposed to be completely compatible). After he put it in, the guy booted it in the shop, and it worked fine. I took it home, booted it again, and it worked fine. I then shut it down, and tried to boot it again, when I had problems. In the next 18 hours, there were 12 unprovoked restarts (for apparently no reason), 3 'serious errors' in windows, 1 'serious error' in my broadband internet connection, Nortons and MSN shut down. It then told me to reinstall Nortons, and Windows Explorer (I have XP). Each time I rebooted, it found something different wrong, before just restarting itself. It also said something about my monitor having an 'Invalid Licence ID'.

It sounds like the memory, try removing the new memory from the notebook and see if there are any errors, if not then that stick is ok, try just your new memory in the notebook and leave out your old memory, if the same problems you know its the new memory, if there are no problems, then the two sticks wont work together.

How to increase the video memory of my laptop

This is done in the BIOS screen. Upon startup of the computer, press the key or key combination the screen tells you to in order to enter the BIOS. Somwhere in there there will be a selection for video memory that you can change. Thanks and please don't forget to give this solution a fixya rating. :c)

Can't upgrade an Acer Aspire 3000 notebook to 2 gb

Thanks for choosing

Your not alone in this type of problem. When it comes to computer (laptop especially) they usually have a "Max allowed ram" most times its listed in the back of the manual in small print. Its a way to keep people buying new computers (if your into the conspiracy theories)
Chances are even a bios upgrade would not fix your problem. Mostly BIOS upgrades add support for new boot options, plug and play support, and fixes to bugs in older versions.

You can check aspires/acers website for updates
If they have an update it will comes with documentation as to what the update does.

Hope this helps you out.

Acer Aspire 3690-2970 Memory Upgrade

Your laptop may just not recognize and not even boot up if you exceed the memory limit. It will not harm the laptop if you give it a try with the 4gb. However, sometimes caution is a good thing. It all depends on what you are trying to do on your acer. If you haven't already, remove the old memory sticks and replace it with the 1 2gb memory stick. Work with it for a little while (this should not give you a problem). If you feel the laptop is still too slow....let me know...I will look up the compatibility with the memory and your laptop.

Memory RAM

Upgrading your memory would be the best thing to do. You already have the necassary information to do so (DDR 333 MHz CL2.5). With the prices of RAM dropping fast, you can get 1GB fairly cheap. Here is a link to some Corsair RAM that will work in your system. Laptops usually hold 2 sticks, so if you purchase two that will put you at 1 GB. You could print that out, and take it to your local store if you want to find the right kind, but it might cost a lot more.
The reason that Windows does not show the full amount of memory is due to the on board video card takes some to operate.
