You can upgrade the RAM providing you have the slots available.
The maximum supported RAM in windows 7 is 4GB. You will find the serial number on the bottom of the laptop, possibly in the battery bay. You can use the following scanner to check the required RAM.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Ram Memory

I did this 2 days ago on my gf's aspire 5315-2153 (walmart special $348). the underside panel has four tiny screws which must be removed and then the fun begins. The plastic panel is large and doesn't want to be removed. After 20 minutes of cursing, i was able to get it out with two hands and a small screwdriver. The plastic panel has about 7-8 tabs which also hold it in place. The original two memory modules must be removed and the two new ones installed in their place. i bought crucial memory from newegg.com (CT2KIT12864AC667) for $17 delivered (took a week to get) which was much cheaper than buying it direct from crucial.com Save the old memory modules just in case you have a problem with the new ones. After putting them in, I restarted the computer and it booted up fine. No BIOS changes or any of that were necessary. So for $17 and about 30 minutes, this lappy is now running strong with 2gb instead of 1gb. Initial impression is that it boots up faster and shuts down faster but that is about it in terms of improvement!!!

First, you would need the manual for that Acer 9301awsmi to fine out if the laptop can take 3 or 4gbs.
Second, see how many slots does the laptop have. This way you will how to place then. Like 2x2g or 1gb and 2gb,.etc.

SOURCE: hi i have an acer aspire 5315-2326 laptop and i

Dear Sir According to your problem regarding RAM upgradation issue,here is the solution
Acer Aspire 5315-2326 laptop comes with following RAM specification

  • Technology DDR2 SDRAM - 667.0 MHz
  • RAM form factor SO DIMM 200-pin

  • According to you your laptop already had 1gb RAM,so you can buy another 1GB RAM of DDR2 SDRAM - 667.0 MHz,only if your Laptop had two RAM slots.If it had only one RAM slot you have to purchase 2GB DDR2 SDRAM(frequency may differ). And also your laptop cant support more than 2gb RAM.
    I think it deffinately solves your problem

    good luck

    What type of RAM is compatible for my desktop pc for increasing speed ?


    Your motherboard can support up to 8 Gb of ram, of type DDR2 667 MHz or 800 MHz. In practice 667 would do I believe as the performance difference is not great in practice. The board has 2 DIMM sockets for this.

    It depends somewhat on your OS and what you want to do. I'd try 4 Gb first. Bear in mind that added ram doesn't actually speed the computer as such, only a faster CPU does that, but it will allow more windows to be kept open, and cut down on data swapping to virual memory on the hard drive.

    Is there a way the memory in a toshiba satellite 1005-s157 be increased to more than 512MB?


    Yes you can, at least to 1 Gb maybe possibly to 2 Gb.
    There will be two memory slots in your laptop. To increase the RAM to 1 Gb install another 512 Mb RAM module in the empty 2nd memory slot. Make sure you use the same make and speed RAM as the one that is installed.
    If you have two 256 Mb RAM modules installed in your laptop then you need to replace the two 256 Mb RAM modules with two 512 Mb RAM modules to get a total of 1 Gb RAM.

    If i upgrade my 1 gb ram to 2 gb,there is a possible to increase the performance of my laptop(hp nc6230)for online games?


    Hi,
    RAM plays a vital in overall system performance. 1GB RAM is enough for general everyday work however, gaming demands more memory as well as processing speed, graphics card performance, internet speed etc.
    From the above details, it is clear that RAM is one of the factors on which the overall performance of a PC depends. Increasing RAM may NOT give significant/ notable difference, but it would surely result in some improvement. HP NC6230 has Centrino processor ( with Windows XP Operating Probably) and if you add more RAM, it means more memory would be available for the Operating System as well as applications/ online games.

    Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

    RK549AA-ABA SR2170NX problem: i think my second slot for ram is no good. i'm supposed to be able to install 2 gb max . I bought 1gb ram to install in slot # 2 but it doesn't work. can i install...


    Is the 1Gb RAM you purchase the same make and speed as the original? If not, they may not be compatible with each other or the new RAM module may be faulty.
    Try removing the RAM from slot 1 and insert the new 1Gb RAM module in slot and boot up your laptop to test the new 1GB RAM module.
    Installing a single 2Gb RAM module should work.

    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).

    Slow laptop dv 9208 w vista


    If you're having Vista, you will need 1gb RAM minimum. Vista is resource intensive, concentrated more on graphics, and a lot of Hardware compatibility issues. Windows XP is fine and better as of now which runs great with 1GB of ram and a pretty processor of 2.0 ghz ...If you think of speeding up ur lappy better go for XP .increasing ur RAM will increase the number of apps that you can run productively at a time.
