Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook

4 Answers

I have a ACEer 5315 model no ICL50 running Windows Vista. To say Vista is **** is an understatement. I want to switch to Windows 7 but guess I will need a lot more RAM for this. Can I upgrade Ram on this model of PC? If yes how do I go about boosting the RAM? ie what memory chips do I need. With boosted RAM can I run windows 7? or will the increased RAM help with Vista

According to the Kingston memory configerator page, this is a Celeron based Acer with either 512MB or 1GB of RAM and that you can upgrade to a max of 2GB. It's going to crawl with either 7 or Vista (Vista is a really good OS... if you put A LOT of power behind it).

The memory upgrade or even a win 7 upgrade will help a bit, but your main bottleneck is the celeron processor - it's a dog slow processor that hates to multitask (the only thing worse is an Atom processor which runs at half the speed of a comparable Celeron).

Hi,
I recommend that you switch to Windows 7 without upgrading your RAM. Windows 7 is a lot faster, better and uses less RAM than Vista. Recommended RAM for running Windows 7 is 1GB but I have installed them on a Centrino 1.5GHz with 768Mb of RAM and they run perfectly.
So make the upgrade to Windows 7 anyway and if you feel that you need more power then you can get more RAM.
Also, download Windows 7 upgrade advisor to check if your pc is compatible. Download upgrade advisor here.

Hello.

Increasing your RAM will help loads with Vista and 7! To install your RAM you need to:

1.) Take apart your machine

2.) Find the RAM terminal and insert your RAM

3.) Screw the cover back on

I am not responsible for any damage done.

If you have any problems I am mor ethan happy to arrange a live confrence call.

Dear friend, OS Windows 7 minimum required 1GB of RAM for system. 1GB DDR2 667 SDRAM all ready install on your laptop so, there is 2 out of one more slot are available for another RAM. So you can upgraded by another 1GB DDR2 667 SDRAM .Remember maximum RAM upgrade limit is 2GB. But i suggest you if, you want to make your laptop speed high then install Windows Service pack 2.Its really good OS & its not gives your pain.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

1. Before upgrading to windows 7, you must check the specification of your acer aspire 5315.

2. Windows 7 is better than windows vista but if you are really wanted those acer programs to work. You have to downgrade your operating system from your previous operating system.

Have an acer 5315 model icl50 and want to add 1 gb memory, is there a way to know the exact match for memory module without opening back cover


Hello there!

You would most likely look for a DDR2 667MHz PC2-5300 RAM Memory Module.BTW, it should be a 200-pin Non-parity un-buffered & precisely 1.8volts.

Hope this helps.
