    How to remove memory chip


    Hi,
    Most notebooks have a memory access panel on the under side of the unit. Unscrew the fastener and you'll see the memory modules. These are held in by metal leaf springs on either side. Pull these away from the module and the module will move up. Pull the module out and reverse the procedure when fitting new memory. Make sure the laptop is turned off and unplugged, and make sure you are grounded whilst removing and fitting memory modules.

    I want to fit some extra memory to my Acer Aspire 9300. Which door do I open on the bottom of the notebook. thanks.


    You can adding RAM to your Acer Laptop by following the below steps.

    1 . Unplug your laptop from the AC power source and remove the battery.

    2 . By unplugging the power connector you will be safe from shock.

    3 . Locate the memory access door for the main memory module. It should be on the back of your computer.

    4 . Unscrew the memory access door and remove it.

    5 . Remove the RAM module by applying gentle outward pressure to the securing clips on either side of the RAM module until they release.

    6 . Rotate the RAM module upward to a 45 degree angle and slide it out of the slot.

    7 . Align the new RAM module with the tab in the connector slot.

    8 . Slide it firmly into place and gently rotate it downward until it clicks into place.

    9 . Replace the memory access door.

    10 . Replace the battery and power up the computer. It should recognize the added memory and reconfigure itself for use.

    Hope the above information will be helpful to you.
    Thanks for using Fixya.

    How do I find my graphics card on acer laptop 4720z and change settings to best play games


    * The system configuration of Acer Aspire 4720Z PC Notebook is :

    160 GB or larger hard disk drive / 5-in-1 card reader / 512 MB or 1GB DDR2 533 MHz DIMM module / Intel Pentium dual-core mobile processor technology T2310 (1 MB L2 cache, 1.46, 533 MHz FSB), Mobile Intel GL960 Express Graphics Chipset.

    * Your system have "Mobile Intel GL960 Express Graphics Chipset" graphics accelerator card embedded in the motherboard. Like most of the laptops/notebooks, there is no room for upgrading the graphics card in the motherboard!

    * But you can upgrade the RAM upto 2 GB using two DDR2 DIMM memory modules.

    * If you want to play 3D games with better performance, switch to Windows XP SP2 and upgrade the RAM!

    * If you want to upgrade the memory (RAM), you can check this site : http://www.laptoppartsexpert.com/c-60093-acer-aspire-4720-series-as4720z.html

    I would like to upgrade my aspire3610 by changing the memory to 2 gigs ,do I have to back up the existing memory and is difficult to do


    This is a fairly straightforward procedure. There is no need to backup anything on your system, although it is good to always keep a backup. I do suggest you keep a backup, but I've upgraded many computers without having to. At least backup your most important documents onto a USB key or an external hard-drive.

    Since you are upgrading your RAM and not your hard-drive, you're only upgrading the memory that is used while the computer is on.

    MEMORY UPGRADE ON ACER TRAVELMATE 5720G


    Acer's support isn't the best. IMHO But go to their support site anyway and look up your laptops manual (there should be instructions on upgrading your RAM there). I did find that your machine will accept up to 4GB of RAM 2 X 2GB sticks. There should be a door or port (for easy user RAM upgrading) that is being overlooked, but again it is an Acer.
    Good luck.

    Replacing RAM chip in a acer aspire 3000


    I found the user manual at http://www.synapsenow.com/synapse/data/7117/documents/AS3000-5000_UG_ENG.pdf Page 63 of the acer user manual listed these steps for changing the memory: "1 Turn off the computer, unplug the AC adaptor (if connected) and remove the battery pack. Then turn the computer over to access its base. 2 Remove the screws from the memory cover; then lift up and remove the memory cover. 3 (a) Insert the memory module diagonally into the slot, then (b) gently press it down until it clicks into place. 4 Replace the memory cover and secure it with the screw. 5 Reinstall the battery pack, and reconnect the AC adaptor. 6 Turn on the computer. The computer automatically detects and reconfigures the total memory"
