If the laptop will take 2GB, purchase two identical 1GB chips. They will work faster than one 2GB chip. A useful site is http://www.mrmemory.co.uk/

Page 43 of this manual seems to have the best documentation on memory for this machine. I saw a 2GB max in another document and this shows the biggest module as 1GB. I would believe that infers a pair.

Don't try to load both sticks, your computer will not recognise anything more than the maximum allowed. And could cause problems on your laptop. Take out your 512mb stick and install the 2gb stick on its own.

I hopet his helps

SOURCE: Memory upgrade for Acer Aspire 3680

Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot so you can install modules one at a time, and you can mix different densities of modules in your computer. But if your computer supports dual-channel memory configurations, you should install in identical pairs (preferably in kits) for optimal performance How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS hope this helps pls appreciate by rating as fixyaa.thanks and Godbless.

SOURCE: Problem with upgrading my acer extensa 5620z memory to 4GB

The Extensa 5620z comes with 1GB of DDR2 memory. That's two sticks of 512MB. This unit technically supports 4GB; 2 x 2GB modules. However, unless you're running a 64-bit operating system (if you have to ask how you'd know, trust me... you're not) then only about 3GB will be usable. There's no fix for this, it's just a fact. All standard 32-bit operating systems are coded this way
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Upgrade my RAM from 1Gb to 2Gb everything is working but the cumputer still register 1 Gb of ram


Did you buy a 2GB ram stick or did you buy 1GB ram X2 so in your laptop you have only 1 stick of ram in there thats 2GB or do you have 2 sticks of ram in there which are 1GB if you have 2 sticks in there means one of them dead and is not registering it on your computer if you have only 1 stick in there thats 2GB but your system only reading it as 1GB then you will need to update your bios as it could be set only to read 1GB

Hi regarding my Archos 10 netbook with Intel Atom N270 1.6 GHz processor, Intel 950 GMA integrated 945GSE chipset and 1GB DDR2 apparently it is possible to upgrade to 2GB with this chipset in most cases....


Actually that limit was only in XP Starter Edition. Since you have Home you're in the clear. BTW it's better to add 2 new identical sticks, this way you won't get instability with the dual channel memory active and 2 different memory sticks.

Can I upgrade the RAM of this laptop and the grafic card?


Hi:

Your memory can be upgraded to a maximum of 2Gb of memory.

You have 2 slots, and they can each take a 1Gb stick of PC2-4200 laptop SODIMM memory.

Your laptop has integrated graphics and can't be upgraded

Problem with upgrading my acer extensa 5620z memory to 4GB


Hi there.
I recommend you get another stick of SODIMM to replace what seems to be the faulty stick.
If you are using XP or Vista X86 (32bit) then the system will only recognize 2.8 - 3GB of memory, only 64bit operating systems recognize the full 4GB.


Good luck ad thanks for using FixYa!!

Can't upgrade memory past 1gb when max is 2gb


I have the same issue with my laptop. I have not been able to get the laptop to accept 2gb of memory yet, but I did find something that works. If you put your 512mb memory that works in the laptop and then add a 1gb stick in the second slot it works. Or at least it did for me. It's better than nothing. I am still trying to figure out how to get it up to the 2gb max. Will add a solution if I figure it out.
