Acer Aspire E380 memory

My acer aspire e380-ud421a is suppost to hold 4gb of ddr-2 memory. It will only let me put in 3Gb. Ive had it tested and memory has to be upgraded in pairs and I did that. With 4GB it locks up or reboots every few minutes. I have tried pc2-5300, pc2-6400,and the pc2-4200 and they all do the same. What do you think the problem is.

    Ive tried all these that are recommended. It will only let 3GB run and my Vista memory score doesnt go up any. It is stuck at 4.4 as the ram score. I had that score with 2Gb of Ram. Thanks...

Install a 64 OS, or an OS with Physical Adress Extention.
32 Bit Operating System can only adres 4GB, but that is Ram + VGA Ram + Memory reservetion for other hardware.

That leaves you with something between 3GB and 3,7 GB Ram on a 32 bit OS.

And don't ever buy Ram from Acer unless you like to pay extra for older ram.

Hi pimp69,
You can only use components compatible with Aspire series computers. Before you choose new components, please ask your authorized Acer dealer whether the part will operate within your Aspire series system. This is noted in your manual pg. 6.
Compatible memory for your Acer. Don't forget your Acer uses an intergrated graphics card that uses your system memory to function.

Good Luck & Kind Regards.

Windows 7 does not require 4gb, that is the recommended level for windows 7 ultimate. Does this happen with any programmes or specific ones? also, do you have a seperate graphics card or is it built onto the motherboard?

Aspire ase380-ud421a cd/dvd drive stopped working


Try going to system setup by hitting Delete when you see the acer/aspire logo when you restart, then open your drive there. If it doesn't work, it is likely that your drive needs to be replaced. You could also try reseating (pulling out and putting back in) the cables inside the computer that's connected to your drive. All else fails, replace the drive.
