Question about Acer Extensa 5620 Notebook PC
Hi'ya, Got this machine with 2*512's. Upgraded to 2*1G - all ok. Just tried to upgrade to 2*2G and it bluescreens.
If I pull one module out, all is fine. If I replace that module with the one I took out, all is fine, too. If I leave the 2G in the lower slot and put one of the 1GB in the upper slot - bluescreen.
I am running Windows 7 x64
I can get xp to start if you put a 1 GB chip in the bottom slot and a 2 GB chip in the upper slot but havent tried 2, 2 gig chips yet

Parrotheadpc is incorrect in stating "you can only have a total of 2048 mb installed".
the 5620Z accepts 2 x 2 GB SODIMM RAM, the machine boots and shows the full 4 GB in the BIOS.
the full 4 GB works with the Ubuntu x64 installer.
Windows XP x32 goes BSOD on startup.
Windows 7 x64 install from DVD fails with same BSOD error.
conclusion: this is a Windows-Extensa 5620Z incompatibility that would require a fix by ACER at the BIOS level.
question: there may be specific memory modules 2 x 2 GB which do work--anyone have it work with Windows?
