You can purchase the cards at any retail store. The memory cards from Smart phones and Digital camera's also work

    Yes you can. But you have to specify the extra drive when installing applicatins. They usually ask for a location when installing. You cannot move your existing applications to the new drive.

Can you replace the memory expansion slot in an acer 5315

Not easily Scarlett. You need a REAL computer tech to perform this, and there are very few of us left. (lol!)

May I suggest this?

Hi DD,
Does the cursor blink on the screen before turn off?
There could be several causes for your PC's problem.The major ones though are:-
  1. A virus invasion of your PC.
  2. Your Operating System/boot log has corrupted.
Turn on the PC and press f8 on startup.Select to open on safe mode.Choose to open on a previously good working Operating System.
If this works and the PC opens,you may have to transfer your important files to an external drive then try repairing the Operating System or probably re-install it again.But first:-
  • Check the RAM[s] and make sure they are properly seated in their slots.Your Notebook has 2 memory slots under the keyboard positioned one on top of the other.The expansion slot is the one on top of the primary memory slot.Access them by flipping over the laptop and unscrewing the back cover.There in the middle is the only compartment housing the RAM[s] and the PC's CMOS battery.Unscrew.Remove the RAM[s],clean their slots and the fix them again making sure they properly fit.
  • Check the hard disks power supply.Disconnect it and re-connect it again.
Hope this helps.Thanks!

The Lenovo Y510 has a 250GB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive, the only way to increase this is to purchase a bigger laptop hard drive from your nearest PC/Technology store. Take it in to their technitions and ask for assistance in the purchase of a bigger drive.

I'm unable to have a good gaming on my lap. i think i need a graphics card to satisfy me . plz give me some details about the ghraphics card available for my system.

Unfortunately, while you have plenty of flexibility to upgrade with Desktop computers, this is not so much the case with laptops. The only items an end user can typically add/replace in a Notebook computer is the RAM and in some cases, the Hard Drive. This is due to the fact that almost everything on the computer (sound processor, audio graphics adapter, etc) is integrated into the motherboard with no expansion slots to attach third-party additions to. If you need a better graphics card, the better option would be to either use a desktop computer, or upgrade to a newer computer (both expensive, but necessary.)

I have an Evo laptop and the hadr drive died. HDD2181. Can you use an external drive without the internal drive? Or where would be the best place to get a harddrive?

You are able to use an external hard drive as your main drive but you will need to boot it at startup. If you need more help then just ask

HDD replacement for Toshiba Satellite M35X-S114

should be no problem adding a larger hard drive....If I were you I'd compare some prices of Hard drives and choose the one thats suits're not restricted to toshiba hard drives either....advantages of installing a larger hard drive really relate to what you use the laptop for....if you store lots of music or have lots of big programs then a larger hard drive makes sense....also you'll find it easier to get a 60gig hard drive than a 40gig as that size of drive is quite rare nowadays

To get at some parts takes some doing, but the AVERATEC 4200 AV4265-EH1 is user upgradable. The 80GB hard drive and one of the 256MB memory slots sit under a large bottom panel held in place by seven small screws. Removing two additional screws frees the hard drive. To reach the second RAM slot, you have to loosen one additional screw (labeled "D" in the manual but not on the notebook) inside the bottom compartment, pop out keyboard's four top latches, and lift it off. The RAM slot, the only exposed component beneath the keyboard, is easy to find. Another 256mb run both will surfice.
