Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I have Acer Aspire 5100 notebook. The config is 512 MB RAM DDR2 and 60GB PATA HDD. I want to upgrade both for speed and capacity. What is the next level if I should add in the expandable slot?
I am a writer and don't use this for heavy graphics, CAD or engineering designs. I just do Ms-word, Excel, slides, editing in photoshop, MS-Pictrue Manager.
Please suggest me and comment.
U need 1gb Ram in total it is more than enuff for u u will never feel short after this and sure it will boost performance , u have 512 mb
if u have 2 chips of 256mb each then u need to buy 512mb X 2 chips and ur old ram will be left with u , luckily if u have 1 chip of 512 mb in ur system then u will save money like only buy 1 chip of 512mb but pls check the whole ratings of ur RAM and make of RAM is it samsung or hynix chips or what bcoz u will have compatibility issue in matching ur old and new rams pls let me know of whole specs written on RAM i can help u in matching
if u need urgent boost in performance then i will suggest replacing hard disk u will see a big change in loading OS and opening programs RAM is secondary in this stuff , but it is imp u can also go for 756 mb in total if u dont want to waste money if u have 2 chips of 256 each
secondly go for 160/250 GB 7200 RPM drive for top performance but 5400 RPM is still fast in ur notebook it is like 4200rpm according too my expertise
pls rate me FIXYA for my analysis if u like
