Question about Ferrari Acer 5000 PC Notebook

1 Answer

Upgrade to 4GB, network shows unplugged!

When I bought my laptop acer ferrari 5000 with 2GB memory, I didn't experience any problem. but when I upgrade it to 4GB the lan network always shows unplugged and I cannot connect it to anything, I tried so many ways to solve this but the only way was to remove one of the rams (so it will have 2GB again) then everything goes fine. I think it has something to do with the bios. but my laptop has the latest bios update!

I'm not sure what to do.

    thank you for your response, and I also think this laptop is great too.

    I bought two kingston pc2-5300 (KAC-MEMF/2G), accourding to kingston website, they made this for the ferrari 5000, and I bought it because of that.

    I used cpu-z to check, and also kingston website, but I couldn't find whether it is SoDimm or dual channel.

    I just finished testing the sticks one by one and they both fine, any idea what to do?

    Are you sure that your computer can even hold 4GB of memory? The reason that I ask is because it says that the 5000 can hold 4GB but only run 3.

  • Capacity: 2GB x 1
  • Target Use: Notebook
  • Type: DDR2 667 (PC2-5300) So-Dimm (200-Pin)

  • Thats the spec i found about those sticks, they seems to be good for the ferrari.

    Maybe one of the sticks isent OK, try to run the free program Memtest, you can download it from here

    That will at least give you the answer if both stick ar OK, test them one by one if possible. The program is easy to run, just follow the instructions how to use it. It takes about 30-45 minutes to test eatch stick.

    Good luck to you M8!

I want 2 replace or upgrade my acer ferrari 1000 graphics card .... plz help or tell me a solution

Well,it is practically not advisable to upgrade a graphic card for a laptop.You can always upgrade it on a PC, but with a laptop it is not the best thing to do.The graphic card has two categories, on-board and dedicated,if its an on board ,then you cant change it because it would require changing the motherboard.If its a dedicated graphic card,then you still can change or upgrade it,but it is not advisable ,because the other cards would not be compatible with your machine.

Problem with upgrading my acer extensa 5620z memory to 4GB

Hi there.
I recommend you get another stick of SODIMM to replace what seems to be the faulty stick.
If you are using XP or Vista X86 (32bit) then the system will only recognize 2.8 - 3GB of memory, only 64bit operating systems recognize the full 4GB.

Good luck ad thanks for using FixYa!!

Acer's support isn't the best. IMHO But go to their support site anyway and look up your laptops manual (there should be instructions on upgrading your RAM there). I did find that your machine will accept up to 4GB of RAM 2 X 2GB sticks. There should be a door or port (for easy user RAM upgrading) that is being overlooked, but again it is an Acer.
Good luck.
