Question about Acer Aspire 3502WLCi Notebook

2 Answers

Memory okay I need to add more memory and I am pretty sure I know what I am doing. Now,How do I find out how much memory my computer can handle? I was told that if I put too much in then there may be wasted money and wasted memory that isnt going to get used. Can I put a full GB in and end up with 1.256 or should I only put in a 512 to end up with 768?

    Ok I answered my own question. My computer is upgradable to 1GB using two soDIMM modules.....what does that mean? Should I buy two 512s or just one to add to the 256 that I have already? If I replace the 256 is all my info and pics and stuff going to dissapear off the computer? How can I make sure all my programs, soft ware and hardware will stay on the computer while I make the change?

Hi,

If you are looking to up-grade memory in your Acer Aspire 3502WLCi, you can certainly up-grade it MAX up to 2 GB, here is the link form the Laptop manufacturer, browse the page and you can find all the information you do require regarding hardware up-gradation.
http://www.superwarehouse.com/Acer_Aspire_3502WLCi/LX.A5005.090/p/611478
If you take my advice install or up-grade the memory in such a way that both the memory slots are filled with the same amount of memory as then they will run In dual channel mode which will provide best results in terms of system speed. You can either install 2 X 512 MB memory’s or 2 X 1GB or even 2 X 265 adding one more to the one already present in your system according to you, however it is pretty much up to you to decide.
Regarding the other query that you have posted about the programs being deleted or removed If you change or up-grade the memory, let me tell you that you do not have to worry about that, cause changing or up-grading the memory does not delete or remove any programs, as the programs are saved in the systems Hard Drive. The system Memory has nothing to do with it.

Buy the 2 - 512MB memory, and put them in. You will not lose anything.Everything is on your hard drive, not in resident memory.

I have a compaq pasario 5716 with pentium III Desktop computer. Has only 384.0MB RAM. HD space is11GB. The OS is W98. with Internet Exployer version 6. To update this computer I think I need to replace...


Don't bother upgrading that old thing.

You can pick up a much better second hand Pentium 4 for $60 or so, and even Windows XP can only handle about 4 Gigs of RAM.

Very few Pentium 3s will support a 2Gig module in each slot. Just because they sell 2 Gig sticks does not mean they will work in your computer.

If you want to know how much memory your old machine will hold and support, just go to:

WWW.CRUCIAL.COM

When you get there, run their SCAN MY COMPUTER utility.

This will tell you exactly how much memory and what type you currently have installed, how many memory slots are available on the motherboard, how much each slot will support individually, as well as the maximum total amount of RAM that the motherboard will support.

Good luck.

I receive a "communication error"


To address the present problem make sure the camera is off before plugging in the cable either to the computer or the camera. Also make sure the batteries are up to charge, low batteries or batteries that fail during file transfer will corrupt the memory card. With batteries up to charge plug the cable into the camera and the other end into a USB port and turn the camera on. Now, I would like to suggest that you invest in a memory card reader these are fairly inexpensive and can be bought as a single reader for the type of memory card you have or as a multiple card reader for pretty well every memory card that's on the market. To use a Card Reader it plugs into a USB port and the memory card is removed from the camera and inserted into the card slot. The computer recognizes this card reader as an external hard drive and files can be transferred to your computer Hard Drive with ease. One thing you must remember with any external device and that is you need to do a safe disconnect or eject make sure the device is shut off and the file information is downloaded before you remove the memory card or the files/card can become corrupt. Okay once the transfer is completed insert the memory card back into the camera and format the memory card. Don't delete the pictures at this point Format the memory card. Every time you download the pictures to the computer Format the memory card.

What cable do I need to get the photos off my sony cyber shot camera and on to my windows 7 computer and where can I buy it??


If you are going to buy a cable save yourself a lot of hurt and annoyances and get a card reader. A card reader can be bought for the same or less then the cable and save a lot of frustration trying to work through the camera. Card readers can be bought to fit your specific memory card or you can get one that will basically handle all memory cards on the market. I don't sell the things but after reading and solving a lot of problems on FixYa over errors and download problems using the camera the reader is the only way to go. The computer once the memory card is inserted into a USB port looks at the memory card as an external Hard Drive PC or Mac are both equally compatible with that. You must remember to do a safe remove or eject the device after you are finished and the card has completely downloaded the information files before removing the memory card or you will corrupt the card. Okay another thing once the card is inserted back into the camera do a Format Card in the camera. Every time you download pictures to the computer and but the memory card back into the camera Format the Card. I don't know where you are in this world but I'm sure pretty well any outlet that sells digital cameras and or electronics would have these devices. Really it's the best way to go.

ASUS P4S533-MX MOTHERBOARD FAILED TO RECOGNIZE DDR400/DDR333 RAM


In you case compatibility is your problem or your memory needs a clean up. First clean up the memory's pins. Use a pencil eraser. Then try only one by one so that you will know if there is a problem in each memory. Insert one of the memory then turn on your PC. If it boot up or it is okay try the other one. Then if it is also okay, try both of it inserted and turn on your PC. If it not okay there is a compatibility problem. Make sure the brands are the same so the compatibility are never be a problem.

Video card


There is no maximum video memory. When you add ram you add ram that can cap off at some point but is not called video memory. It is just computer memory. Sometimes your onboard video will share some of that memory. Older systems dont handle more then a gig 2-3 year old systems general no more then 2 gigs and really new systems can go up to 4 gigs of ram
