Boot with over 2GB of ram

My Acer aspire 5610z Laptop will not boot with over 2GB ram. I purchased two 2GB Corsair RAM modulws and if both are inserted in position 1 and 2 the system hangs up and I cannot even access the bios. Either of them work in either position. In their specs they note that it it upgraded to 4GB,
Any suggestions ?
Thanks You

Make sure you got the right speed -

Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-4200 or DDR2 PC2-5300.

If you got faster than 5300 they may not clock down properly.

If the memory is the correct specs then it may simply not be compatible and you will have to try different RAM.

I have the best luck on laptops with Crucial ram - they have certified ram for many systems. here is a link for yours:

Just installed 2 2GB cards (Corsair VS2GB800D2) to replace the 1 1GB card in my emachines EL1200 series. Computer will not boot. replaced the old card and it booted right up.


Will it boot with only ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks installed?
Will it boot with ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks AND one of the 1GB memory-sticks?

Look closely at the 1GB memory-sticks.
Does the label show 'DDR266' or 'DDR333' or 'DDR400' or 'PC2100' or 'PC2700' or 'PC3200' ?
Do the 2GB memory-sticks have _identical_ information?
It's definitely _not_ acceptable to have "slower" RAM (smaller numbers) in the new RAM,
but it _might_ be acceptable to have "faster" RAM (larger numbers).

Added new ram (2gig + 2gig) acer inspire 5610 and it won't boot back up. worked great before i added memory.


Unfortunately the max supported RAM size is 2GB. you cannot exceed that. Sorry for the dissapointing news!

Remove 2GB and it should boot back up fine!

Hope this helps, please rate well!

Acer Aspire 5584WXMI Upgraded Ram


All ram is not created equal.

You should check on the Laptops manufacturer website support pages. They should have a list of know ram manufacturers that have been tested with your laptop.

Check in the manual to see if the ram may have to be installed in pairs.

Also, be sure the new ram is seated properly in the slot.

The ram may not be fully compatible with your laptop.
