Hello!

You can buy 2- 512 mb DDR2 memory. It should be the same spec with the two current memory.
Memory should be the same specs and capacity, you insert it to your slot 4-1GIG to maximize, in your setting i recommend another 2-512mb bcoz your current memory is 512 mb capacity.

Not advisable to insert diferent capacity or diferent brand memory bcoz it cause damage to the mainboard and memory also.

Up to 4 GB of DDR2 533/667/800 MHz SDRAM (dual-channel support on four DIMMs)


in your case, you can add more 2-512mb memory, DDR 2 refer to your current memory about about this number. 533/667/800 and follow.

Hello, You might be able to add 2GB more. 1GB per slot. You need to get the model # off your motherboard and verify what the maximum amount of memory it will support. 1GB per slot would be 4GB total but some Operating systems will only support 3GB. So some might be wasted if that is the case. You would need to use the same memory type. So if existing is PC2-4300, use the same. Hope this helps.

I have an Acer Aspire T180 and would like to upgrade the memory and add a wi-fi card. can you advise what cards I need to purchase?


Memory:
Looks like the Aspire T180 takes DDR2 533/667/800 memory. This is pretty easy to upgrade. Check to see how many memory slots your computer has (Probably 4, might only have 2). You should probably just replace what you have with new memory.
I recommend this memory:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231122
It is 2x 2GB modules. 4GB of RAM is a good amount of RAM to have, you will see a noticeable performance increase.

WiFi:
I would recommend a USB wifi adaptor. It is easy to instal and most ones work well, even the cheap ones. Just stick it in the back of your computer and forget it it's even there.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833130066
I recommend this one, I have been using it for 2 years and have had no problems.

Upgrade ram


In order to upgrade the ram of your desktop. First you have to check the ram specifications. If wrong specifications the desktop will not work. To check you have to remove the ram from your desktop by removing the screws behind your desktop. Open the lid and you will see the contents of your desktop. Besides of your processor, there is ram installed. Unclip it. Then bring that ram to the computer shops. Purchase a ram higher than the ram installed in your desktop. Afterwards, install the new ram to your desktop. Good luck.

How to upgrade acer aspire m1100 ram


It is actually pretty simple, just remove either screws or fasteners holding the case on. On that model it may even just be the side panel, which would be 2 screws/fasteners. Here is a video that explains the process. http://videos.howstuffworks.com/howstuffworks/26-how-to-install-ram-to-a-desktop-computer-video.htm Thanks,

Trouble after RAM upgrade


sounds more like a compatibility issue with the new ram. Take it or send it back and get a different brand. Or better yet was it running bad to begin with, before them ram upgrade? If so you prolly loaded down with adware and spyware, possibly even a virus. I would suggest doing some good maintenance if thats the case.
