Question about Acer Aspire L310 Desktop

1 Answer

Acer will not accept CD

I installed a 1gb memory chip in my Acer Aspire L310. My computer works great as far as memory and execution. No loading problems.
BUT....when I try to put a program cd in the drive, it does not take it in. It should grab hold of it and finish the insertion, but does nothing. I've opened my computer again to see if I made a mistake in closing it up the last time. Still, no cd acceptance.
Does anyone have an idea what's going on and what might possibly wrong with my Acer?
Any answer is greatly appreciated!

Can I install microsoft office 2007 on acer aspire 3680 ?


As far as compatibility is concerned, YES you can install Office 2007 on your computer. The only factor that would limit you is the amount of RAM you have on the computer but since you have Windows Vista, I would assume that this computer has 1GB or more of system memory.

This is just a secondary concern, though. If you have any lower than 1GB of RAM (possibly due to shared video memory), the application will still run except not as fast as you would like it to.

Just want to now what is the biggest duo 2 cpu can you put in the acer aspire l310 desktop


This is the standard equipment for your model.
Problem is, your system is already maxed out for heat.
If you add a faster CPU, you will most likely suffer from overheating, but yes you can add up to a 3 gig+ duo with no problem fitting it in the socket. Expect your power supply fan to run constantly though.

Processor: 1.86GHz Core 2 Duo E6300
Memory: 1GB DDR2
Storage: 320GB hard drive
Optical Drives: Double-layer DVD±RW
Monitor: None
Graphics: Integrated Intel GMA 3000
Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium

How do I use the CD that came with my ACER aspire to download microsoft word when the laptop doesnt come with a CD player?


Find a friend with a computer that does have a CD-ROM, and a USB port. Purchase a USB memory-stick that has at least 1GB of memory.
Get your friend to copy all the files from the CD-ROM to the memory-stick, including any "hidden" files.

Then, put the USB memory-stick into your computer, and install the software.

I have an acer power f5 which canot accept a 1GB


Try the 1gb chip on its own. (with no other chips)
If it still does not work check your motherboard manual
Make sure that your memory is supported by your motherboard.
You will need to know the type and speed of the memory chip you have.

If the memory is a match and it still does not work it may just be stuffed. Did the memory work in another machine?

Hope this helps
