Re: mim2120 extra memory

First, you are talking about storage space not memory. Make sure to make that distinction when posting for help so we know what to help you with.

How much space do you have total? To check the size and free space do this:

  1. Click on the Start button located in the lower left corner of the Taskbar.
  2. In the menu that pops up, click on My Computer to open the window.
  3. Single click on the Local Disk (C:). You will see the size of the hard drive at the bottom of the blue bar on the left of the window.
  4. If you do not see it, then click on Details. you will see how big the hard drive is under Total Size in GB and how much of that space is unused (Free Space)/li>

You may not be able to free up a lot of space - it may be better to upgrade to a bigger hard drive. Most computer stores can also copy your old drive to the new one for you so you dont have to reinstall windows.

Usually, it is not possible to upgrade the cpu on a laptop. In rare cases where it is possible the upgrade usually costs nearly as much as a new laptop.
However, you can significantly upgrade the laptop's performance by adding more memory and by replacing the old slow hard drive.
Your Sony VGN-Z250 is usually supplied with 3GB of RAM memory. You can replace the existing memory modules with a new kit consisting of 2 x 2GB modules (total 4GB). The type of memory you need is "SO-DIMM" (meaning laptop size) DDR3 - 1066MHz (you may use 1333MHz memory but it will only run at 1066MHz speed). I would suggest either G-Skill or Crucial brand memory. And you can replace the hard drive with an SSD. You'll be amazed at the boost this provides, seriously. I would suggest either Samsung 840 EVO or Sandisk Ultra for an SSD. Both offer super-fast performance compared to your old spinning hard drive, and both have very low power consumption so they run cool and give your laptop a few extra minutes of battery power. You can clone/copy your existing Windows setup onto the SSD using free Macrium Reflect software or free software from the SSD maker's website. Or, you can do a fresh install of Windows.

My VGA memory is 3 Gb, I install windows 7. my vga memory detect on my laptop 358 Mb

I would have thought that your total system ram memory is 3Gb...your vga memory of 358Mb is for your video graphics adapter...3Gb of video memory would be very unusual on a laptop...

Hi, I want to purchase one of the laptop of CW series having RAM 2 GB. but I read in one of the booklet, I got to know that for smooth performance we have to have 3 GB RAM. because of windows 7 ..64 bit.

Yes the computer will have better performance with 3 GB of memory but 2 GB is the minium requirment for windows 7 64 bit,expecially if you run extra application you will be glad you had the 3GB.

Kind of like with hard drives the amount shown is never the exactly full amount cause when it comes to hard drive space some of it is taken up for creating the partition.

When it comes to memory some of it is taken up for the system to run, boot up, etc. So as long as its close then everything is fine.

I cannot run MS Flight Simulator on my IBM Thinkpad R40, probably because the video memory is 16MB and the program needs 32MB video ram. Some thinkpads came out with 32mb video ram though, and now I'm...

You should be able to buy buying a Video graphics card for your specific computer. You should always check with your manufacturer to make sure that the part is compatible with the rest of the computer. You may even be able to find the part on the manufacturers website. If you do not know much about computers, especially laptops then you should always have a professional assist you that way you dont cause any other problems.

Hope this helps! FIXYA! Please leave a rating!

Need more video and memory.

Very few laptops allow you to change the video, it is integrated (built in) to the motherboard. All computers also have a maximum limit to the memory capacity based on the number of slots and the type and size of memory modules supported by the CPU.

The Acer Aspire 3624WXCi was a budget system with a Celeron 1.6GHz processor. The Celeron series is just not that good at video tasks, such as your flight simulator demands. The integrated video is an Intel Media Graphics Accelerator 900 with 128MB ram, not bad but not optimum for your applications.

The Acer Aspire 3620 series uses DDR2 memory and has two slots. Each memory slot can hold a maximum of 1GB, so the system is limited to 2GB of ram. If you are at this limit, it is true that you can not add more but must move onwards and upwards to a newer more powerful system.

Not enought disk space

You will need to find out what is taking up the space. Pictures, games, or pther programs.

Check to make sure that the there are no items in the Recycled Items bin (the waste basket on the desktop). In Internet Explorer go to tools\internet options and delete all temporary internet files, these do not get automatically deleted.

Go to control panel and choose add\remove programs. Are there programs in there that you no longer use?

Do you have loads of pictures on your computer? Can you transfer them to a CD, this way you can delete the pictures on your hard drive.

Remove the large panel (7 screws) on the base of the machine.
The memory is situated under a black flexible plastic cover about 75 x 30 mm - amost directly below the earphone and mousepad area.

Memory is held in position by clips at each side - press them outwards and memory card will pop-up.

A second card can be fitted below and slightly higher than the first.

I have just fitted IGb and will probably put in another (max 2GB), - cost about £15.

Hope this is of use.
