When you installed the new upgrade and it was giving you errors it probably damaged or moved some files on the computer. Sorry to say but the easiest fix is going to be re-installing windows. Other than that it would require editing the registry and that is not easy and requires some knowlege

    My laptop become very slow ...its 1 gb ram and 160 gb harddisk .... which os i should install please advise


    You need to upgrad the amount of RAM.
    The 4720 notebook is capable of running up to 4GB or ram on 32bit windows 7 OS

    The OS requires 1GB of RAM to run.....

    Therefore, you only have enough RAM to run window, and no spare ram that should be dedicated to the graphics and other system operations.

    Action needed:
    Buy 2x 2GB sticks of Kingston ValueRam and run the laptop on 4GB. It will be much faster than what is needed and should provide fast computer responce.

    Cheers.

    I have Acer laptop Aspire 5570z module Zr1 with memory 1GB I want to increase memory 2GB or 3GB Is it possible or not What will be the expenditure?


    Your laptop's RAM is upgradeable to up to 4 GB using two DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM modules.

    So your upgrade options here are:
    1. Buy a 1 GB DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM module & install it to get a total RAM of 2 GB (Price around US$ 25).
    2. Buy a 2 GB DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM module & install it to get a total RAM of 3 GB (Price around US$ 45).

    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.

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


    Thanks for choosing fixya.com

    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 www.acer.com
    If they have an update it will comes with documentation as to what the update does.

    Hope this helps you out.

    Acer Aspire 5315


    I have a friend who has an Acer Aspire 5315 running Vista and it was pretty slow right out of the box with 1gb of ram. I upgraded his Ram to 2gb and it ran moderatly faster and smoother. Vista is a demanding OS because it's so graphical in nature. Windows Vista requires more ram then XP plus a better CPU to run smoothly. His had a 1.6ghz Celeron which is not that great of a CPU to begin with but uping your ram will usually up your performance a few degrees. Be careful with cheap ram it can run hot and unstable. Make sure go with a name brand PNY, Corsair, Kingston, etc. Don't just buy House ram (generic) because it's cheap. It's not worth wasting your money on junk ram.

    Hope this helps. M~
