Acer aspire 3680-2022 with vista is just too slow. Intel celeron M processor 420; 1.6 GHz, 533 MHz FSB, IMB L2 Cache; 80 GB HDD; 512MB DDR2; Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950


More memory will make a difference. Vista is a memory hog and 512 is really not enough. You don't say what version of Vista you have but Microsoft say the min spec for Home Basic is 512MB, other flavours 1GB. Gety as much in as your mainboard will support - 2GB would be my minimum..

A Celeron 1.6 processor isn't going to be that fast if you are running a lot of apps and not much you can do about that (pretty unlikely you can upgrade; very few laptop mainboards let you).

There are a few tweaks you can make that may help but you (defrag, set Windows to better performance rather than better display, format and re-install) but stick some more memory in and see how you go.

I have a Satellite 2405-S221 and I was wondering if the max memory i can install is 512K, is there a way to update the bios, or ANYTHING to increase that amount to at least 1 gig??


Toshiba Satellite 2405-S221 Laptop takes the PC2100 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs Memory Type, and comes installed with 256 MB (removable) of Memory. You can upgrade your Toshiba Satellite 2405-S221 Laptop to up to a maximum of 512 MB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install Memory, already with 256 MB (removable) standard Memory installed.

In short.... yeah, 512k is the max.

Doesn't appear to a bios limitation. It is a hardware issue that is limiting the amount.

Ram Upgrade Problem


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.

RAM ON acer computers


Yes... just need to purchase the right stuff.

You need to determine if you have DDR or DDRII. And then determine if you have one stick of 512, or if you have 2 sticks of 256. Once you know this information, visit your local Best Buy or purchase somewhere online, a memory upgrade. Such as 2 sticks at 512mb for 1 gig total. Assuming you have two memory slots, should have anyway.

DDRII is fairly cheap right now, be a good time to upgrade. DDR on the other hand, is still a little more expensive.
