when your system logs on, press F2 to go to set up.

under drives, you'll need to re enable each of your DVD's

happens when memory is changed, since that's where bios resides anywhoo.

I want to upgrade my processor and memory on my acer travelmate 4000. I currently have an Intel Pentium M 1.5GHz 496RAM processor. I have 2 memory slots each containing 256MB type DDR PC2700, DDR...

I suggest adding 2X 1GB DDR PC2700 memory sticks. Crucial also recommends it, but as long as it's only 1gb thats DDR PC2700 per stick it's compatible, so you can shop around if you like and choose the cheapest.

Hope this helps!

Ram upgrade capability

Simply, yes you can. just open the case and put in the new boards. you can buy higher spec. memory(as long as the pins are the same number)
I.E. ddr-sdram boards will fit and as long as the speed is the same (132.8 Mhz) or higher.
I changed from 133Mhz to 333Mhz and the performance was much improved.
The PC3200 is the important bit, should be the same.
after you change the memory ,try running disc clean up in "start, all programs, accessories, disc clean up" this will also speed things up as well as de-fragmennting your drive(s)

Want to replace 2x 256mb of memory with 2x 512mb of memory into my hp compaq presario v4000

Hi there.
Yes you can upgrade the memory to 2 x 512MB DDR SDRAM memory.
You will be pleased to know that the system supports up to 2GB DDR SDRAM memory (2 x 1GB)
Please be gentle when installing the new memory taking care to remove the battery and the mains power from the laptop first before installing.

Have fun and thanks for using FixYa!!

Hard disk and ram

Hello Kevin Shaggy...

Let me see if I can help you out a bit...
Adding a 160gb to a 40gb does give you 200gb. BUT!!! you will loose a little bit on each one after formatting the harddrive. The new drive will wind up being about 157 or 159gb give or take a little.
ANY harddrive partition, whether it is a c:, d:, DO have to format EACH drive letter.
If you partition your 160gb harddrive into 2 parts, (2) 80gb drives, then they would get two drive letters and both of them get formatted.
IF the 40gb drive is C: then the new 160gb partitioned in half would be D: & E:.
CDROM Drive would be F: and so on....
Floppy Drives, CDrom Drives, DVD Drives, you do not have to format like a hard drive...

If you add a 1gb stick of memory to your existing 256mb stick of memory then you WOULD have 1gb + 256mb. If you remove the 256mb and just add 1gb, then you would just have 1gb.
