    The facts are, the maximum allowed per slot is 1GB and a total of 4GB @ 1GB per slot.

I believe the max you can go with per slot is 1gb.

This is copied from the Acer site:

Up to 4 GB of DDR2 533/667/800 MHz SDRAM

I have an Acer Aspire T180 and would like to upgrade the memory and add a wi-fi card. can you advise what cards I need to purchase?


Memory:
Looks like the Aspire T180 takes DDR2 533/667/800 memory. This is pretty easy to upgrade. Check to see how many memory slots your computer has (Probably 4, might only have 2). You should probably just replace what you have with new memory.
I recommend this memory:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231122
It is 2x 2GB modules. 4GB of RAM is a good amount of RAM to have, you will see a noticeable performance increase.

WiFi:
I would recommend a USB wifi adaptor. It is easy to instal and most ones work well, even the cheap ones. Just stick it in the back of your computer and forget it it's even there.

I recommend this one, I have been using it for 2 years and have had no problems.

I have a acer aspire t180 gb7z pc and i would like to know what is the maximum ram speed i can upgrade to


You have 4 slots, capable of handling 4GB of memory but CAUTION: most machines come installed with 32 bit Windows OS. To maximize memory you must have 64 bit Windows OS. With 32 bit system, its probable that 1GB will be all your machine will handle.

Want to add more memory to aspire t180 ast 180-ud400b


According to Acer's website, your system uses this memory configuration...

256MB DDR2 533/667/800 SDRAM expandable to 4GB


My suggestion to you is, if you have the original 256 loaded, find a good bargain on DDR2 667, one gb memory modules and REPLACE what is installed, instead of adding to it.

If you add to it, and it is the incorrect speed (that's the 667 number), you may experience some very undesirable results.

good luck

PS. This advice is posted assuming you are aware of the dangers of ESD, and you have some technical experience on the inside of a computer. If this assumption is false, please share this advice with your technician to get the correct memory upgrade.

New graphics card


You can buy an Nvidia 8800GTS with 320MB for $180, and a 9600 woth 512MB for 130. If I were you I'd pick either of these, they're both good cards for a good price.

Want to add memory all 4 spots are used


If all of your memory slots are used, you will need to remove the memory that is currently installed in order to increase your RAM. It appears that the T180s were originally configured with 256MB, but they are expandable to 4GB. If there are 4 slots (I couldn't find any documentation with images), you can use a maximum size of 1GB modules for each slot. Just remember that if you are using a 32-bit operating system and you upgrade to 4GB of RAM, you will not be able to use all 4GB. The BIOS will report 4GB RAM, but the operating system will only see approximately 3.4GB.

Acer Aspire T-180 Memory Upgrade question


Hello, You might be able to add 2GB more. 1GB per slot. You need to get the model # off your motherboard and verify what the maximum amount of memory it will support. 1GB per slot would be 4GB total but some Operating systems will only support 3GB. So some might be wasted if that is the case. You would need to use the same memory type. So if existing is PC2-4300, use the same. Hope this helps.
