    Finally got Acer help.

    The aspire 5610 will not handle more than 2GB total.

    The manual is wrong in stating it could take 4GB.

    Thanks to every one that tried for me.

If you go to the acer site there are utilities to update the bios

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/utilities.html#BIOS

Make sure 11% that you flash the correct bios as the wrong one will render it useless. Also make sure that you are plugged into the mains when doing it and pray that there isnt a power cut during the flash :)

I upgraded Memory to 4GB with Two 2GB SD Ram Modules but System shows Only One 2GB module and does not show/recognize second module. BIOS Setting Shows Second Slot/RAM Module Not Activated.


is the module in properly?,is anything broken?? switch them around and see if the module is good or not,also,just because the motherboard supports 2 modules,if intel only recognizes 2gb then that is all,whether you have 2 1gb modules or 2 2gb modules,upgrade your intel chip and upgrade your bios

Upgrade memory asus pro70c


Keep in mind that a Windows 32 bit system will only accept up to 4GB, but utilize only 3GB. Something to consider before you purchase.


Check your manual.

64 bit is OK to increase.

Installed 4GB upgrade in optiplex 330 still only 2GB memmory


Your BIOS should automatically detect your new RAM when your computer starts, try starting your computer after removing your old RAM module, if it starts, you need to update your BIOS to use 4GB. If it doesn't start, you either have a faulty RAM module or a faulty connector on your motherboard. Insert the new RAM module into the slot the old RAM module was in, if your computer still refuses to start, you have a faulty RAM module which should be returned, if it does start, it's the connector on the motherboard, and only replacing the entire board will fix the problem. However, it's worth noting that your motherboard will only support RAM modules of 2GB or less, the above was written with the assumption you're adding an additional 2GB module to your Dell computer.

I m trying to upgrade my HP compaq nc6320 RAM MEMORY from 1GB to 4GB, Do i need BIOS upgrade if yes from were i can find the drivers and how can i do it? thanx i am gone wait for respond......


Hi,

As far as I know, the machine supports 4GB of ram, so you purchase the ram modules from a pc parts dealer and install them inside the machine, removing the existing ram, there are 2 slots, so you need 2, 2GB cards.

You do not require any drivers or bios update.

Windows will need to be upgraded to 64Bit version if you wish to use the full capacity. as normal windows is limited to 3-3.75GB

Further questions? let me know.

Sounds like the memory stick isn't compatable/wrong voltage or is faulty.A bios upgrade you can get at the Averatec website support but its unlikely it will help though.

Hi!
I have the same problem, and my problem was that I have installed 4GB ram and that ram modules wasn't accepted with the new bios. So I installed the old modules and it all worked again, downgraded the bios to one version older and installed my 4GB ram modules and it all worked.

Hope that's your problem too.
Good luck
