    If it says you have 4 gig and you only have two slots there is no other thing to conclude but that they are 2 gig sticks.



    I have seen computers UNDER report memory but never over.



    What does your BIOS say you have ?

The only thing you missed is if you have only 2 slots to put memory sticks it means that if you want to put 4 Gb of ram you need to buy 2 sticks of 2 Gb each, you have no other choice. you can't add memory but only change the existing ones.

HOW TO GET THE BACK OFF


Break it off..........

In order to take the Base Enclosure (Bottom Cover) off, you would have to break it off.

The Acer Aspire 5000 series of Notebook PC's, disassembles from the Top down. When you are done you are looking at an empty Base Enclosure,

You have to;
Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.
Remove the Harddrive Compartment Cover, Harddrive, Memory Compartment Cover, Ram Memory, Wireless Module, Wireless Antenna wires out of laptop body, Optical Disk Drive, (DVD drive), Display Assembly, (LCD Module), Keyboard Cover, Keyboard, Palm Rest Cover, Motherboard, and so on..........

Then you have the Base Enclosure. (Bottom Cover)

WEAR an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.

Can i upgrade the hardisk of my asus eee pc series laptop to a higher memory?


Most EEE PCs use 533/667 MHz DDR2 RAM via a standard SO-DIMM module, which can be swapped out. The 700 and 701SDX have RAM soldered to the motherboard.

The black model EEEPC 4G SURF (4GS-PK008), and newer white models (4GS-W010) have a removable panel on their underside that allows the user to change the RAM without fully disassembling the system. The older white models (4GS-W010) lack this access panel, and require some disassembly in order to access the RAM.[57]

The hardware supports up to 4 GB (2 GB for the 1000 series, and some of the 900 series), but the preinstalled Xandros kernel of the 700 series only supports up to 1 GB

Memory type for the acer am5630-u5209a


Acer Aspire-Desktop AM5630-U5209a specs:
Memory Type-----DDR2
Memory Speed---PC2-4200, PC2-5300
Memory Type-----Non-ECC Non Registered
Memory Slots----2
Max Memory Per System--4096MB (4GB)
Max Memory Per Slot-------2048MB (2GB)
Dual Channel Memory Support---Supported
Tri-Channel Memory Support------Not Supported
Install Memory in Pairs--------------Not Required
also check your memory voltages by looking at the different memory voltage settings in your bios, write down the choices of the different voltages supplied by the motherboard for the memory.
Not all memory is created equal. for example, i purchased some high end gaming memory that matched my system specs only to find out it ran at a higher voltage than my motherboard would supply. Post again if you need more help ..

I have an acer extensa 5620-6830 with 1g memory on a dual core which means I only have 512m for each core. Right? What is the most memory I can add and not having done this before what kind of memory chip...


DUAL CORE refers to the amount or cores your PROCESSOR has, Memory indicates the TOTAL amount for the WHOLE SYSTEM, NOT the cores or the precessor. You should be able to max out your memory @ 4gb, but check your machine specs at Acer website for Max amount and type.

How to install memory on comp.pres.5002us


Presario 5000 Series might be able to support up to 1536 MB if it has 3 slots (3 banks of 1).
Check your main board specs before upgrading.
In regards to the anti-static wrist band, you do not needed; just make sure that when opening and installing the memory assemblies touch the PC's metal chassis with one hand to get read of the electrostatic charges from your body.

Acer aspire 9810 memory problems


Two things you can check.
1) Verify that the Acer doesn't require a jumper change on the motherboard to support more than 2 Gig.
2) Verify that the particular version of Vista that you have will support more than 2 Gig as well. It is possible that the Vista installation process "checks" for available memory and loads based upon that number. I don't know that for sure, but other software has done this in the past. It is best to check.

How to change add RAM to Acer Aspire


first check with www.acer.com to see that expansion is possible.

all computers like their memory upgrades in sets, instead of singles(like changing both front tires on your car or truck)..so compatibility among the two is more vital than matching to existing ram cards.
