Acer Aspire M5100 Vista 64 Bit - No sound, just static

I recently installed Vista 64 bit and 3 more gigs of ram (it already had 3) on my Acer M1500 AMD Anthon 64X2 6000. The sound is not working properly now. When a sound is played I hear static. The system says the driver is working. I tried installing the most recent Realtek drivers but it didn't help. I have scoured the internet for a week trying to solve this. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Ive had this problem with my machine as well. i had to reinstall then update the audio drivers (i know that doesnt help) but it ended up being my USB wireless adapter that was causing the problems. Once i updated that, it stopped the noise (which was good because i was using my tower to DJ, and noone likes static while gettin their groove on) ... so.. im no comp geek, and my knowledge is average on the subject, but i would suggest checking any peripherals you might have installed on this machine. who knows, ya might just get lucky..

Can you please remove some of the extra ram you have added and see if you get the same problem. If you don't get the same problem install each ram stick (if more than one) one at a time and test to see if there is any problem.

I want to add more RAM. Is it possible?? Worth it??


It Depends On How much ram you are running now. More ram is Always A good Thing.
However, The Amount of Installable Ram Depends On the Operating System you are running.

Windows XP, Vista, and 7 32 bit (x86) systems only except up to 4 gigs of ram. (Sometimes 3 1/2)
Windows XP, Vista, and 7 64 bit (x64) Systems will except up to 16 gigs of ram. (Some Beyond that)
If you are Unsure which System you are running,
1. Click on the Start Menu
2.Right Click on my Computer
3.Doube Left Click on Properties

On the Main Properties Page it should display
1. Which operating System you are running and Which bit it is (eiter 32 or 64)
2. How Much Memory (RAM) you are currently Running
3 and What Proccessor is Installed in your computer

I installed 4 Gig of RAM memory but only 3.25 shows up.\r\nis there a test I can run to see if the memory cards are working correctly? Thanks. Paul


It sounds like you are running a 32 bit operating system XP, Vista, or Windows 7 (32).
The 32 bit Operating Systems are only able to see and use about 3Gb of RAM. To use a greater amount you will need a 64 bit OS (either Windows XP/64 or Windows 7/64) or one of the open source 64 bit operating systems.

Does acer aspire 4315 wire less net supports in win7 ? ?


As of the moment there is no driver support for the Acer Aspire 4315. If you have already installed Windows 7 and you can connect to a cable internet through your Ethernet Port, you can try downloading and install Driver Genius Professional which can assist you in getting the compatible driver. Since this software can detect even unknown devices.

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd


This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can i install 8 gig ram in my m3201 and get it all to work


Short answer: Yes, you can. (see here)

In order to USE it, you have to have an Operating System that can handle that amount of memory like Windows XP 64-bit or Vista 64-bit. See a chart here.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Cust is not able to download any program on vista operating system it gives an error message as not supported on windows 64 bit


there is very little software, and virtually no freeware, that supports vista 64 bit. return the computer if u can and exchange it for one with vista 32 bit, these machines usually have 3 gigs or less of ram, where as the vista 64 bit systems will typically have 4 or more gigs of ram.

Acer 5050 5430 not reading the correct aomut of memory


Windows 32-bit operating systems cannot physically see 4 GB of memory. The most you can see is 3 GB. And, assuming you have onboard video, 1/2 GB is going for video memory, thereby showing you only have 2.5. The only way to solve this is to install either Windows XP or Vista 64-bit operating system to fully utilize your 4 GB of memory.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Upgrading Ram/Bios


You do have to have a 64 bit OS so that windows will recognise 4 Gig of Ram.

I have Vista Ultimate 64 Bit and 4 gig of ram in my laptop. I upgraded the OS Before I upgraded the Ram, this might be something that Microsoft Address in the near future. so if you dont want the expense of buying Vista X64 then hold off for a little bit. Although 64 Bit doesn make more sense when you are getting to the limits of 32 bit
