Ram upgaded 1G to 1.5G

I have just replaced my 512 removable RAM card for a 1G in my Acer Aspire One AOA 150-1283 for a total 1.5G do I have to do anything other than install the card? The memory shows its there and computer runs great! Does it just know its been upgraded? I was told I might have to do something with BIOS?? THANKS

Hit start, control panel, system, device manager, and look under 'General" on the main screen, it should say right there the processor and ram type and size. If its not listed click on the hardware tab, go down to the memory, and click on memory/ram, it will be listed there. If it isn't showing or showing is showing he wrong speed, then go into the bios, by rebooting and selecting the delete key. If it shows under the memory speed, that it is the wrong speed, just click on that entry using the arrows esc, and enter keys to navigate the bios program. Highlight it and hit enter, select the proper speed ,hit f 10, and enter to get out of the bios menu. That should set the proper speed if it wasn't correct, good luck, you already did the hard part.

There is nothing else needs to be done. If system is recognising the new ram and is working fine.. its a job well done. Just enjoy the upgraded PC :)

Hi there.
The computer will recognize the memory as soon as you have installed it and booted the PC up, while you are in windows, right click on computer, select properties and the installed memory will be shown in that window

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

You should be good to go, if you had the wrong memory mod the machine would probably just blink or beep at you. If you experience blue screen errors or virtual memory errors this could be a sign of incompatibility but I would say you're probably fine.

I tried to upgrade my acer aspire one A150 to a 2 GB stick of ram - didn't work so reinstalled the 512 stick I had (SHOULD be a total of 1 mb counting the 512 onboard.) It is NOW only recognizing 512. ...


Try swapping the ram sticks with each other and see if it still reports 512. If it does...then it sounds like you damaged one of the seats for the RAM somehow. Did you have any static shocks occur?

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).

Acer Aspire One AOA 105-1049 Would like to upgrade memory. What do I need.


your laptop comes with 1g of (DDR2 SDRAM)
( DDR2 SDRAM - 533 MHz SO DIMM 200-pin)
so you will need any
DDR2 SDRAM - 533 MHz SO DIMM 200-pin ram.

the pin is very important. and it has to be notebook ram.

how ever the bad news is your laptop bored will only support going up to 1.5g

so sticking a 512mb in your gona lose part of it, as well you take the chance of making your system unstable. Below is a link of what your looking for.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=DDR2+SDRAM+-+533+MHz+SO+DIMM+200-pin%29&x=10&y=29

for the added performance on updating your ram your not going to get your money worth. I just recommend saving your money.

please rate this and mark it fixya if it has helped.

I want to overclock my acer aspire 5050 this the review: * Processor: AMD Turion64 x2 TL-50 (1.6 GHz, 512 KB L2 cache total, 256 KB on each core) * RAM: 1 GB 533 MHz DDR2 RAM (2 x 512 MB) * Hard...


I have the same system too. None of the tuners such as RIVA work well w/ integrated notebook card, and u r graphics card is pretty ghetto. I could however, download POWERSTRIP and tune up a minescule 300-400 MHz but it won't let me access memory clock. More than this I could do no further overclocking.

The BIOS will recognize the new ram when the pc is turned on. If the amount is being reported correctly and there are no beeps you are good to go.

Crucial's website says your computer will hold up to 2GB max. There are 2 slots. Also says you can mix sizes.

Here is their link for additional info.

RAM ON acer computers


Yes... just need to purchase the right stuff.

You need to determine if you have DDR or DDRII. And then determine if you have one stick of 512, or if you have 2 sticks of 256. Once you know this information, visit your local Best Buy or purchase somewhere online, a memory upgrade. Such as 2 sticks at 512mb for 1 gig total. Assuming you have two memory slots, should have anyway.

DDRII is fairly cheap right now, be a good time to upgrade. DDR on the other hand, is still a little more expensive.
