The problem is will your processor read 1GB of random acess memory. install you open the laptop remove the screws and access the mother board push down the usually white clips and lift the ram straight out, when installing make sure you ease the stick into the socket and when you have it against the bottom push it firmly until the clips lock back into place.

What memory can i upgrade to for my system?

The Gateway GT4022 comes from the factory with two sticks each of 512 MB PC3200 DDR 400MHz dual channel, non-ECC memory, for a total of 1GB (1024 MB). You have 4 slots for memory. Each slot can have up to 1GB for a total of 4GB's. You should install the memory in _pairs_ for best performance. Also, when installing in pairs, you'll need to populate the pairs in slots 1 and 3 (_not_ slots 1 and 2 if using only one pair). Slots tabs on slots 1 and 3 are white. The tabs on tabs 2 and 4 are black.
You can go to memory websites like to get a free scan of your computer to see all the memory options available for your computer.

Acer laptop 2310 series, 5yrs old 40 GB HDD; 256 MB DDR.Windows XP. Can i add more memory & if so how much?

Yes you can. You can increase the memory up to 1GB. If you are going to keep the memory inside then you should buy a 512 MB memory card, making your computer run on 768 MB of memory. If not then replace it with a 1 GB memory card. Remember, this computer can only support a maximum of 1GB total memory. The price depends on the memory module. The higher it is, the higher the price will be. Go to your local computer store for the price.

This laptop has 2 slots
Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700 with a maximum of 512MB per slot.
So maximum memory supported is 1GB.
If you install more memory there is a high probability it will not be recognised.

You can get more information and order memory from the link below:

How do you remove and replace dell laptop memory? (d600)

I dont know this particular model, but usually it's underneath the computer, there is one screw to remove and you can take out a door which gives you acess to the memory slots. If it's not there, you will need to remove the top cover to get there. But it's most likely a small door underneath the laptop.

Memory upgrade for Toshiba Satellite A100 - PSAA9A

this free cleaner called ccleaner is really good and gets your system cleaned up, free of any spyware and free updates.


But the memory problem is the fact that your notebook may only recognise 2 of the same size memory sticks, so take out the old memory and try the new in on it's own, if no boot at all then the memory is not compatable with your system.


You can go to the crucial web site and see what the tool finds as to the type of memory you can fit
