I found the user manual at http://www.synapsenow.com/synapse/data/7117/documents/AS3000-5000_UG_ENG.pdf Page 63 of the acer user manual listed these steps for changing the memory: "1 Turn off the computer, unplug the AC adaptor (if connected) and remove the battery pack. Then turn the computer over to access its base. 2 Remove the screws from the memory cover; then lift up and remove the memory cover. 3 (a) Insert the memory module diagonally into the slot, then (b) gently press it down until it clicks into place. 4 Replace the memory cover and secure it with the screw. 5 Reinstall the battery pack, and reconnect the AC adaptor. 6 Turn on the computer. The computer automatically detects and reconfigures the total memory"

I own an aspire 3000 which has been quite sluggish so i thought it was time for a RAM upgrade.
1. To get to the ram you will need to unscrew the 2 little screws which are located on the middle panel on the underside of the laptop.

2. Once the screws are totally unscrewed (they will stay in the panel) slide the entire panel foward to the front of the laptop as far as it will go this is normally about 2-3 millimeters.

3. Gently prise up the panel with a fingernail or flat headed screwdriver, then apply a modest bit of force to remove the entire cover. do not be scared to apply lots of force as this is the only way you will remove it.

4. Install the RAM module

5. slide the cover back on into position the same way you took it off and screw back on

Add more ram


hi-
To add ram - look on the back of the lap top. You will see some screws that are holding down a little door. There may be two of these. Remove the screws on the ram cover and remove ram cover

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Ram slots are stacked. you have to remove the top one first.
1- press the buttons on the sides of the ram chip, and then it will pop up and towards you.
2- 2- pull this ram upwards and out
3- from there, you can take out the other chip, if there is one, or you can start installing.
4- installing the new ram chips is just as easy
5- line up the slots in the chip, then push it in as far as you can without breaking it.
6- then push it down so that you hear it click on both sides, and doesn't budge.
7- Repeat using the top chip.
This should do it –
I hope it helps- please rate me – thanks

We have an aspir e3680 that only shows 502 ram. We have a printer that needs 512 ram to operate. What are the solutions?


According to these specifications, you can install more memory in this laptop. Unplug it, remove the battery first. Remove the access cover on the back which is held in with a small screw. You should see two slots that memory chips slide in to. Additional memory can be purchased over the internet or at retailers like Wal-mart, Best Buy and Office Depot. Hope this helps you. If you need more help, let me know.

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 do I add more RAM memory


It is easy to add more RAM to the laptop, the first thing you need to know is the type of memory you model uses. Your model uses DDR2@533MHz up to 2 GB RAM (2 chips 1 GB each).
PLACE THE LAPTOP UPSIDE DOWN ON A SOFT CLOTH. MAKE SURE YOU DON'T MISPLACE THE SCREWS.
1. Remove the larger cover in the back of the laptop (2 screws) ; the memory chips are under this cover.
2. Replace the chip(s) with larger capacity chip(s).
3. Put the cover back (using the 2 screws you safely removed in step 1). Thats it!
