You have three options:

1. Don't use those slots and even cover them with electrical tape so you don't forget.

2. Get the board replaced or repaired

3. Return the computer to the store where you bought it and get another one. The manufacturer of the computer may also warrant it and replace the computer.

Install ram upgrade for acer aspire 5310 pc


if you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.


first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system


you should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility before making any purchase or buy for working pairs if possible

Unplug your laptop from the AC power source and remove the battery.

Protect your computer from static electricity by grounding yourself with an ESD wrist strap or through another grounding method.

Locate the memory access door for the main memory module. It should be on the back of your computer.


Unscrew the memory access door and remove it.

Remove the RAM module by applying gentle outward pressure to the securing clips on either side of the RAM module until they release.

Rotate the RAM module upward to a 45 degree angle and slide it out of the slot.

Align the new RAM module with the tab in the connector slot.

Slide it firmly into place and gently rotate it downward until it clicks into place.

Replace the memory access door.

Replace the battery and power up the computer. It should recognize the added memory and reconfigure itself for use.

hope this helps

    Netvista does not boot up after replacing with 2 gb of new memory


    Hi !

    I just not well placed and fitted. Turn off your computer and remove all the power cable connections. Remove again memory chips and return tightly fitted into the slot. Something it will not reboot our computer when it is not well fitted into the slot. It happen to me before that I cleaned the CPU unit and suddenly it would not open the computer. I disassemble all and found out that the problem it the memory chip that is not fitted correctly. Just repeat the insertion and soon it will boot up your computer.

    I hope it helps you and thank you for using FixYa !

    Laptop loses power and shuts down for no reason.battery is dead and theres no back up power


    • use a power cord - if the problem persist..--if it works then it is the battery that needs replacement; or else
    • try to reseat the memory, try to switch the memory on its slots (if there are multiple slots) - it could be the memory
    • if it comes to the point of no power at all after the above steps then it is the system board.

    Dell Inspiron 600m not starting up!


    I had this same problem with my 600m laptop.  How many times do the lights flash, before they stop flashing?

    Cause: There is a physical problem with the computer that it is detecting at startup diagnostics.

    Solution:
    You should have two pieces of RAM installed. Carefully, remove the memory slot cover.  Swap the 2 pieces of memory you have in there (please follow memory installation and removal for laptops to the letter, by never touching any of the electronic contacts and handling the memory from its sides). Make sure, they sit in the slot properly (to the best you can see). Then, place back the memory cover, very carefully, and screw in.  If you see the memory door cover not closing properly, the RAM might be improperly inserted.  Please go back to the swapping of RAM step. :)  

    If this didn't work, 1 of the 2 RAM's you have are no longer functioning properly. Please follow the steps to openning the memory door again and remove RAM in "B" slot first.  Then close it and try to start the computer.

    If it still doing the same light flashes, open the memory door and remove RAM in slot "A".  then place the RAM you removed from slot "B" into slot "A".  Then start the computer again.
