Date 08.09.2013: BIOS BIOS BIOS!!! 2 GB RAM in Acer Aspire One AO532h (2Db): BIOS 1.25 supports up to 2 GB RAMBIOS 1.26 supports only 1 GB RAM (the 1,25 version was downloaded from the original homepage today, but perhaps they can change the file...) Cheers!
Sounds like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in Task-Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE). High CPU levels causes hang ups like freezing.
Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.
Consider increasing RAM.
Uninstall any extras like those pushy toolbars, and add-ons.
Use a player with up to date codecs like VLC Player.
Boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly when powering on). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, all your updates will roll back to that date. Follow the process.
This POST error could mean BIOS error or a system board failure.
I suggest you replace the BIOS battery and configure the BIOS date and time etc. If this doesn't work then reseat the RAM modules.
If this doesn't work, take the RAM module/s to youe friendly computer shop to get them to test the RAM.
If all this fails then most likely the laptop's motherboard is dead.
The T42 can support up to 2 Gb of RAM.
The laptop comes with 512Mb of RAM under the keyboard and a spare memory slot on the bottom of the laptop.
To install 2Gb of RAM put 1Gb in the memory slot under the kerboard - need to remove the old RAM and put the other 1Gb in the memory on the bottom of the laptop
64-bit Double Data Rate (DDR) non-parity SDRAM memory
PC2700 at 333MHz
Two 200 pin SO-DIMM memory slots, one slot is pre-populated with 256MB or 512MB, leaving one socket available
Hi, if i understand your PC is running slow and craching. ok there could be coursed by a few things but lets do the most probable ones first.
1 - RAM, if you go to the start menu and right click "my computer" in XP or "computer" in vista then properties under memory there will be somethink that says ****GB of Ram ( * being numbers). if you r running vista this should be 2GB or 1GB min. if XP 1GB will run well. if your RAM is not this high then you have to upgrade it. if you still have your manual some times they have the spesifecations at the back and you can find out the max RAM your PC will take and what type it will take. if you dont have the manual you can find this information out by just typing into google eg "dell 2400 spesifications or RAM, etc". when you know what RAM you need then just us google to find the cheapes place to buy. again your manual should tell you how to put it if not you should be able to find it on google.
2 - removing any unwanted software from your PC does speed it up, you can also try defraging your PC - right click C drive properties defrag is under one of the tabs.
3 - Spyware some times spyware can slow your PC down make sure you have an up to date spyware scanner and run a scan.
