512 is not enough to run Windows 7... but before buying RAM... do a search to see if the computer has the requirements see this
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/system-requirements
Then if it handles your gurantecomputer go to Crucial.com and it can tell you what to buy IF it can handle the machine.. the prices are fair and guranteed to work...

SOURCE: RAM Upgrade

Hi

There are a number of reasons why a computer will seem to run slow. Yes, a RAM upgrade may help but not necessarily.

Firstly, uninstall any software that is no longer required or not really needed. Next, go to Start\Run and type msconfig then Ok. Then click the Start up tab. This will show you all the programs that run as soon as you boot the computer. Many of them will be running all the time even though they are not being used and each one puts pressure on the RAM/CPU and uses resources. Uncheck all programs that are not required at start up. That means most of them, except antivirus software and other vital programs. Check online start up lists. They will tell you what to keep and what you can uncheck.

Next, do a full adware and spyware scan and delete everything that is found. As the hard drives are quite small by today's standards, use the disk defragmenter by going to Start\Programs\Accessories\System Tools\Disk Defragmenter and follow the instructions. That will tidy up the disc and the computer should help it to run better.

These are things that can easily be done before upgrading the RAM. If you do upgrade, it may not make any noticeable difference unless the new program they have installed is resource hungry. You can check your CPU usage by doing the following. Press CTRL+ALT DEL click Task Manager then click the Performance tab. The CPU usage will be seen on the top left. If it is above 60% the computer will be running too slow. The lower the percentage the faster your computer. If it is too high then a RAM upgrade may improve the speed.

Finally, make sure the upgrade is suitable. Not all computers will accept upgrades to 2GB. Visit this site >HERE< and run their scanner. It will tell you the best upgrades for the computers and will recommend the chipsets.

Hope this helps....

Did you check if your computer is capable of running Windows 8 comfortably? Have you followed the upgrade procedure? 2 GB memory seems rather too little. What was the original Windows version? XP, Vista, Windows 7. Was the original OS 32 bits or 64 bits?

How to uppdate from Windows Xp into Windows7 I


Well, it depends on your computer specification because every operating system has it own hardware requirements. Before upgrading to windows 7 make it sure your motherboard support the windows 7 operating system. In your case your motherboard supported by the windows 7 so when upgrading rather formatting your computer you must have the windows 7 installer. Then follow this video tutorial on how to setup your computer to windows 7. Before formatting you must have to back up all your data or files saved on your hard drive. Have a nice day

Wont to upgrade graphic card my p.c has 2gig max ram in it wonts should i upgrade to to preform its best cheers mike


Depends on what kind of hardware you have
-Memory- 2 gb ram is "ok" if you use windows XP but if you have Vista or Windows 7 you should have a minimum of 4gb ram.
-Processor- if you have a Dual core processor you are ok, if you have a p4 or p3 you dont want to waste money on a new graphics card because it will not help you get better games, your processor and memory will slow you down instead.
So my advice is, if you have a OK computer, go ahead with buying a new graphics card if you computer is old and slow, DONT buy a new card! put your money on +2gb ram instead (cheap,and gives you more benefits) or maybe buy an "upgrade package" with new motherboard-memory-processor.

Can i install windows 7 on my acer extenza 5620?


Yes you can, but please note that the laptop has shared video memory so if you will get a low rating index on Windows 7 you will need to upgrade the RAM (it supports up to 4GB) in order to allocate more RAM to the video card.

There's not much that one can "upgrade" on a laptop.
You could install more RAM.
You could install a larger & faster disk-drive.
If you're running Windows XP, you could upgrade to Windows 7.
That's the only components that can be upgraded.

Do this model supporsts win xp service pack 2


Hi.

This unit has a Pentium 4 2GHz single core processor, and does support Windows XP SP2.

The standard memory installed on this unit was 256KB RAM, in order to run XP efficently you will need to upgrade the RAM. I suggest upgrading RAM to the maximum amount allowed of 2 GB RAM.

To upgrade the RAM to 2 GB you will need 2 modules of 1GB PC2100 184 pin DIMM ECC each.

I have a ACEer 5315 model no ICL50 running Windows Vista. To say Vista is **** is an understatement. I want to switch to Windows 7 but guess I will need a lot more RAM for this. Can I upgrade Ram on this...


Hi,
I recommend that you switch to Windows 7 without upgrading your RAM. Windows 7 is a lot faster, better and uses less RAM than Vista. Recommended RAM for running Windows 7 is 1GB but I have installed them on a Centrino 1.5GHz with 768Mb of RAM and they run perfectly.
So make the upgrade to Windows 7 anyway and if you feel that you need more power then you can get more RAM.
Also, download Windows 7 upgrade advisor to check if your pc is compatible. Download upgrade advisor here.
