Ast180-ua381b buy which replacement motherboard

If you want to rep[lace teh motherboard have no limits ..basically the only thing that limit your choice ...are the devices from teh old board you planing to use on the new one ..
So ..if you are planing to use the CPU have to get a board with the same socket..but I would not recommend it unless you have a fast cpu ..and you know it is working ..
So ..if you are not limited by the cpu socket ..the only thing to look is to have buses for your hard drive and disk drive ..(so if you have the hdd on sata need at least one ide bus for the dvd drive ..and the most important to have slots for the memory you have ..If your ram memory is on ddr2 attention for the frequencies ..It may not support ddr2 on 800 if you get a board that only uses on 533 or 667 ..but will work the otehr way around..If you have ddr2 on 533 will work on a board that works with 6667 and 800 mhz ..
the rest is not that important and will work sure you have at least a 300W power supply ..or even larger if you are planing on using a fast video card ..
..So I said ..the CPU socket ..and the ram memory used are the only limits ..real ones..the others..are usually supported well on any board with same slots ..

I wanted to get my acer aspire T180-UA381B upgraded, and I know very little about computers, how much and what kind of ram should i put in to make it run fast

Based on your memory specs below the maximum RAM that you can install in your computer is 1GB
DDR2 SDRAM and you can get 1GB RAM for like $15 -$ 20. 1 GB DDR2 SDRAM is what you need to buy.

[close] Installed RAM: 512.0 MB RAM, or Random Access Memory, is the place in a computerwhere the operating system, application programs and data in current use arekept so that they can be quickly reached by the computer's processor.

Upgrade possibillities for Acer Aspire T180

Aspire T180 Language
English Model
Aspire T180 Specifications Specifications
AMD AM2 Athlon 64 x 2 or Athlon 64 or Sempron (940 pin)

256MB DDR2 533/667/800 SDRAM expandable to 4GB
1 Ok now that i found the spec for your computer here we go you can install the amd 64 x2 but not Phenom x4 9950

2 As for the graphic card you seem to know a little about computers so you can install and pci express x 16 graphics card that only needs one slot but remember some need power and this mean you my have to upgrade your power supply.So really you can by any single slot pci express graphics card for your computer so it comes down to how much you want to spend.
3.Ok for ram your max will be 4 gbs most likely ddr2 which mean that you have 4 ram spot in your computer.
hope this help please vote for me.

Acer Aspire T-180 Memory Upgrade question

Hello, You might be able to add 2GB more. 1GB per slot. You need to get the model # off your motherboard and verify what the maximum amount of memory it will support. 1GB per slot would be 4GB total but some Operating systems will only support 3GB. So some might be wasted if that is the case. You would need to use the same memory type. So if existing is PC2-4300, use the same. Hope this helps.
