Re: Add memory to acer aspire 5720
My advice is this, if you want to change or upgrade your acer 5720 memory, to be safe, bring it to the computer store cause they would offer you a free mounting on your laptop if your going to buy a memory card and then they would teach you and let you see how to put on and put off memory card unto your laptop. Have a nice day!

The ram location is right where you are looking. There are two memory slots available for ram. They are staggered one on top of the other. Release the side pins and the module will pop up at a 45 degree angle . Pull the module out in the direction and replace at that angle, then push the module down in place. You may only have one memory slot filled at this time, Therefore there would be an empty slot to fill.
As I don't know what current Acer Aspire One model type you have, I can not advice upgrade for memory. As far as I know the AoA150, you'd have to open the entire laptop just to reach the memory and upgrade it. The AOA150 has a kind of build in RAM on the mainboard BUT has a additional slot where you can add additional memory.
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.
1. Determine what memory you have, how much your laptop will take, and how much you need. Go to www.crucial.com, and it can automatically scan your computer and tell you what you have and what it will take. 2. On the bottom is an access door for the memory. Remove the screw and pop open the access door. 3. Either replace or add the new memory module into the slot(s). They go in at a 45 degree angle, then press down for the locking tabs to lock the memory into place. To remove the memory, you just pull out on the locking tabs and the memory will raise up slightly allowing you to remove it. 4. Replace the access door and screw.
Thanks and please take a moment to rate this as fixya.
no its not easy to access original one but you can add addition RAM to your lap.
on bottom of your lap you can find screws for a small rectangle area. just open it and there is the place where you can put additional RAM
