    i am getting 2 gb more ram but i want to know it it would make sense to upgrade my processor. Or would it be better to get a new motherboard and processor at same time. If so which one would you reccomend.

Is you are going to do a complete overhaul, you are better off going with a ASUS motherboard, with a processor, and 4 GB of memory. Here is a good place to get all these parts and your computer will run REALLY great.

Hello,

Upgrading is just making the speed of your stuff higher that the original. ex. memory from 1gb to 2gb..video card from 62mb or 128mb to higher..the upgraded components should be match to your motherboard. upgrading make since to your unit.

If replacing new motherboard then: you have to consider the following:

Hard drive,
memory,
processor

some components maybe usable but it will affect the performance of your new components.

so have to consider also the power supply, casing, video card and againg the hard drive should be at a higher RPM today's hard drive is 7200 rpm.

may this help

Can i upgrade my old monitor to a new acer 19" Acer Monitor


Hi Ricky,
In most situations you won't need any special connections, as most LCD screens have the same VGA interface sockets and cables as your older screen.
Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
Best wishes,

I have acer travelmate 2355nxc with 40 gb hdd. want to know how to increase its speed and capacity.


Hi, how are you?

To upgrade your laptop, you will have to verify the capacity for upgrade of your laptop.

The Acer Travelmate comes with:

  • Intel Celeron-M 360 Processor 1.4GHz
  • 256MB DDR SDRAM -
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs
  • 15" XGA TFT Screen
  • Intel 852GM 64MB shared graphics
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition

  • Based on this information, you can upgrade your memory depending on what type of memory your motherboard supports and how many empty slots for memory does your laptop have.

    The hard drive can be upgraded also depending on which hard drives does the BIOS will recognize.

    I will suggest to contact ACER and ask for the options and upgrades capacity.

    God Bless You!!!

    Hope it helps.

    How to upgrade acer aspire m1100 ram


    It is actually pretty simple, just remove either screws or fasteners holding the case on. On that model it may even just be the side panel, which would be 2 screws/fasteners. Here is a video that explains the process. http://videos.howstuffworks.com/howstuffworks/26-how-to-install-ram-to-a-desktop-computer-video.htm Thanks,

    How to Upgrade to max RAM


    The Acer Aspire One can be upgraded to a total RAM of 2Gigs. This will allow for you to upgrade to Windows XP Pro and also to Microsoft Office 2003 as there is no version of Office Professional. If you would like more specifics on your particular model, please look here. http://www.laptopmag.com/review/laptops/acer-aspire-one-10-inch.aspx?page=3

    Upgrading RAM is a fairly simple process. As this is a fairly compact laptop in design, you will have to upgrade to a new 2Gig RAM module and basically discard (or sell) the one you end up removing. In order to find out the type of RAM you'll need, remove the cover as show in the picture and the info for the existing RAM should be written on it.

    Good luck!
