Installing sodimm 2x2gb ram for acer aspire 5504wxmi will not boot but each 2gb installed seperately will boot. Why wont the BIOS recognise 4gb even before the OS could boot? is there a fix?


The motherboard chipset, and more specifically the Northbridge chip, will Not support 4GB of Ram memory.

The Acer Aspire 5500 series of Notebook PC's, (Which the Aspire 5504wxmi Notebook PC is one of the series), uses an Intel 910GL motherboard chipset,

The Intel 910GL motherboard chipset only supports 2GB of Ram Memory,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#9xx_Chipsets_and_3.2F4_Series_chipsets


Primer:
The motherboard chipset technology used in your Acer Aspire 5504wxmi Notebook PC, consists of a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.

[ Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The Northbridge chip is an Intel 82910GL {Part Number}
The Southbridge chip is an Intel 82801FB {Part Number} It is also referred to as ICH6.

Scroll the above page down towards the bottom, until you come to the heading -
Southbridge 9XX and 3/4 Series chipsets, for information on the Southbridge chip ]


The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

{AGP and PCI-Express graphics technology are High-speed graphics.
A graphics card inserted into a PCI slot, or a graphics chipset using the PCI bus, is NOT high-speed graphics.
Integrated Graphics is Not High-speed graphics }

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.
Anything connected to the PCI bus, Integrated Graphics, IDE bus, SATA bus, USB bus, Ethernet, and Audio,
(Sound)

I invite you to reinstall the Ram Memory the Aspire worked with, go online, and download the tiny, free program - CPU-Z
This tiny program will tell you exactly what motherboard chipset is on the Aspire's motherboard.

This is information on CPU-Z, and shows you the GUI of CPU-Z,
(Graphics User Interface),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU-Z

Click on the screenshot of CPU-Z on the upper right of the page. (Enlarges it)

CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short.
When you open CPU-Z it automatically opens to the CPU tab.

If you click on the Mainboard tab, you will find out in-depth information on your motherboard.
(Mainboard is proper speak for Motherboard)

CPU-Z homepage,

http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

CPU-Z download page for newest version,

http://www.cpuid.com/downloads/cpu-z/1.58-setup-en.exe

Need help in downloading, and installing CPU-Z, post in a Comment.
Also what the tabs are, and how to understand what you are looking at.

Regards,
joecoolvette

(If an online entity suggested an Acer Aspire 5504wxmi will support 4GB of Ram Memory, they are wrong.
Find out what exact motherboard chipset is on the motherboard. This will support my statement )

The computer does not recognise the hard drive through USB port.


The "click" is a sign that the disk-drive is malfunctioning.
If it still is under warranty, exercise the warranty, and get it fixed/replaced.

Otherwise, open it up, remove the disk-drive, and take it to a computer-store, and ask them to sell you something compatible.
Install the new drive into your casing.

I have a acer 210t laptop with a 700 processor. can I upgrade to a faster processor and if so which one and how fast. Thank you.


Some laptops have "mobile" CPUs (physically smaller, and consuming less power) than the typical "desktop" CPUs.

So, if you know "how" to disassemble your computer, you may be able to remove the heat-sink & fans on top of the CPU, remove the CPU, and install a faster one.

However, if your current CPU is of the "Pentium III" series (which ranged from 500 Mhz to about 1400 Mhz), you may not be able to find a CPU that will be significantly faster than your current 1.26 Ghz CPU.

Instead, I would check the disk-drive -- if it is 4200 RPM or 5400 RPM, I would replace it with a 7200 RPM disk-drive, for better I/O speeds, and thus help your computer go "faster".

Also, I would add more RAM, again to make your computer go "faster".

Having a problen installing 1gb ram. unit is 1gb ddr2 dimm 533mhz. computer turns on, shows that it has updated the memory, but does not boot


Hi,

if the computer states that the memory has been recognised. but fails to boot. it may not be compatable memory for your CPU/Processor. Or system bus. check your previous memory stick, to ensure it,s the same running speed 533mhz. Failing this if your computer does not support this.
check the manufacturers website, to see further details:- Maximum supported memory/Speed et,c.
Systems bios date, and whether an update is available. your only other alternative is to install 2 x 512mb sticks of Ram.

Creative Zen mp3 player - computer won't recognise it


The ONLY AND I REPEAT ONLY way to solve zen and computer recognistion problem is to have THE ORIGINAL INSTALL DISK that came with player.
The only things that will work is
1. Download Utorrent 2. Go to google or yahoo and search Creative (you'r player type ie zen touch, zen mossiac, zen x, etc.etc.) install disk torrent. 3. Try to find the one that is closest to the name of your player (ie. zen touch, mossiac, x) and download the install disk. 4. After the download finishes you should be able to run setup like you have the disk.
I downloaded the install disk torrent and after i finished downloading I simply found the setup file clicked it and installed the neccessary files, and presto my computer recognised my zen touch.
#2 If you can't find a install disk for you perticular player, you should try to see if maybe a friend or someone youknow has a creative mp3 player and ask to borrow there install disk, who knows it just might work for you'r player. Best of luck and I hope this will solve you zen player/computer problem

CPU fan fail or speed too low


Hi,

I bought the same motherboard this past year (used) and installed it with AMD Athlon 64 fx-57, Antec P180 case, 550 w power supply. I had the case cover off to check the fans when I first fired it up. The AMD oem cpu fan hesitated at power on for a few seconds, which worried me. It started spinning normally and I then shut the system down and waited a few minutes before restarting it. It spinned up fine so I put the cover back on. I started getting the same error you mentioned, so I updated the BIOS to 1013 version. That didn't solve the problem. I ended up disabling the warning in the BIOS as I got tired of seeing it, as I could see the fans were all spinning and the CPU temperature was at about 26 to 34 on cold boot.

I recently checked on this problem and seems many others with this board have this problem. One fellow said he mailed off a question the the problem to ASUStek and they replied that it is just a glitch, that the fan is "smarter" than the BIOS, as it will hesitate to spin fully at start up if the CPU is cool. The suggestion was to disable "Q Fan Controller" in BIOS. I did and don't get that warning.

As for the yellow question marks under manage in Windows, you need to install the drivers for all of those devices, and they will be on the disk that came with the motherboard. I use the latest drivers from the ASUS site, but the only one I couldn't install was the ACPI ATK 0110 Virtual Device that came out in 2007. When I try to unpack the .rar file it says Corrupt Headers and refuses to use the driver from that file. So, I use the driver from the disk.
