Mine has 2x 512mb PC2-5300 CL5 SODIMMs installed as standard, taking up both of the available slots. So to upgrade to 2gb, you have to replace the 2x 512mb chips with 2x 1gb equivelents.

How do you access the memory slots on an acer aspire z3731


Memory Sockets or Slots are the place where memory RAM modules are inserted in the motherboard. The Acer Aspire Z3731 has 4 (4 banks of 1) memory expansion slots. A memory bank is a group of memory expansion sockets, a bank must be completely filled with memory modules of the same size and type in order for the system to recognize and address the memory. i.e. :
2 sockets (2 banks of 1) This indicates that there are 2 memory slots. These are divided into 2 banks, and each bank consists of one memory slot. So you can add memory one piece at a time for the system to use.
3 sockets (3 banks of 1) This indicates that there are 3 memory slots. These are divided into 3 banks, and each bank consists of one memory slot. So you can add memory one piece at a time for the system to use.
4 sockets (2 banks of 2) This indicates that there are 4 memory slots. These are divided into 2 banks, and each bank consists of two memory slots. So you must add memory two pieces at a time (they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.
8 sockets (4 banks of 2) This indicates that there are 8 memory slots. These are divided into 4 banks, and each bank consists of two memory slots. So you must add memory two pieces at a time (they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.
12 sockets (3 banks of 4) This indicates that there are 12 memory slots. These are divided into 3 banks, and each bank consists of four memory slots. So you must add memory four pieces at a time (and they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.

Memory upgrade: the factory 1mg RAM appears to be in two slots of 512MB each. If so, where can I find these huge monsters. I ordered a 1 MB chip and it's half as long as the 512 MG installed in my PC....


According to Acer's specifications for the T690, you need DDR2 RAM, which is quite commonly available. From your description of the RAM you got, I suspect you wound up with laptop RAM instead of desktop memory

You shouldn't have too much trouble finding vendors of the type RAM you need. Just look for DDR2 type, PC4200 (533 MHz) or PC5400 (667 MHz) speed, desktop RAM. Here's a link to one vendor (TigerDirect) so you can see typical memory and pricing. If you're not in the US, you should be able to find a seller in your part of the world.

HOW DO I install new memory in acer aspire L320


First step would be to lookup your system specs either in your manual or at the Acer website. See what RAM is compatible with your system. Once this is done purchase what you need. Open the case and you should see the RAM modules & slots. If you are replacing RAM you will need to remove the old first. If you are adding to empty slots just line it up properly and seat it in the open slots. Close the case and reboot. System should automatically recognize the new specs. Make sure you disconnect power and properly ground yourself before touching anything inside your case. Hope this helps.

My evo is running slow, i was thinking of upgrading the ram. what type of ram and what is the max?


Hi,
mine was running slow too. Like I'd turn it on and go grub some coffee, than make some toast and then after It'd bring the windows screen on.
If that's the case I suggest to try different hard drive, but my guess it's motherboard issue:
Here is memory information for EVO D51. Please let me know what model you have, so I can be more specific

RAM Memory Specifications

Memory Speed: 133MHz
Memory Type: SDRAM (PC133)
Maximum Memory Supported: 1.5GB

How do i upgrade the ram on my acer veriton L 460


You should first go to the Acer website, look up your computer model and see what type of RAM & upgrade suggestions Acer has posted (manufacturers will usually in their downloads & support or technical areas of their site concerning your model make such upgrade suggestions. These can be helpful in most cases when your no0t sure of what type of, or how much RAM you need buy for your upgrade.) concerning your model. You can then go from there to get more specific upgrade suggestions for your exact model. Please remember when installing RAM to be concerned about electrostatic discharge and wear a ground strap or at the very least touch the outside of your case before the inside to discharge any residual static electricity and be very careful with internal components. Please be sure you are comfortable enough with these components especially memory modules because damage to the motherboard and/or the modules retaining slot/clips can occur very easily.

Memory upgrade


There are 2 memory slots in Acer L320. You can use program called cpuz to check how many memory modules are you using, and what size are they.
If you have any module free you should be capable to upgrade memory.

Acer l100 memory upgrade


I just attempted this, and I must say that there are many things about the other solutions that just plain wrong. Here is my step-by-step:
  1. Choose your RAM. Use the memory advisor from Crucial to tell you which ram to use: http://www.crucial.com/. I used their PC 5300 2*1GB kit. You can RAM from any retailer, as long as it is the same type recommended by the memory advisor.
  2. Lay the case flat and remove the screw in the middle of the top plate at the back, then slide the top plate off. You will probably have to break the warranty seal to do this.
  3. There are three black clips that hold the front bezel onto the top section. Prise them upwards and the bezel will come away.
  4. There is a black screw on the motherboard near the back, holding down a piece of metal attached to the top section (drive bays). Remove this screw, then pull gently on the plastic handle on the top section to loosen it.
  5. Lift the top section so that you can pull the power and IDE cables from the hard drive at the back, then lift it fully upwards. Be careful of the ribbon cable underneath, you may need someone to hold it up for you while you change the RAM.
  6. To remove the old RAM, do not simply prise it upwards as someone else said. The RAM slot has a metal clip at each side; push these outwards to the sides until they click. This releases the RAM so that they can be lifted out.
  7. Slide the new RAM into the bays and push it down to lock it into place. Make sure both sides click properly.
  8. Reassemble the case in reverse order, taking care to get everything stowed away in the right place. Take care remounting the front bezel to make it is properly in place before clicking the tabs back on top.
Hope someone finds this useful. By the way, while i can in there I noticed an empty expansion bay: anybody know what this is?
