Acer aspire 9810 memory problems

Thanks for the tip Dan.
Yes maxing out at 2gig works well enough.
Acer state in they're manual that the max memory size is 4gig. However according to memory supplier,. Vista 32bit will only address 3.5gig of this or less. The bottom line is that I now have a spare gig of memory I cannot use unless of course there is a technical workaround for this?
Thanks again Dan.

Two things you can check.
1) Verify that the Acer doesn't require a jumper change on the motherboard to support more than 2 Gig.
2) Verify that the particular version of Vista that you have will support more than 2 Gig as well. It is possible that the Vista installation process "checks" for available memory and loads based upon that number. I don't know that for sure, but other software has done this in the past. It is best to check.

Just upgraded my sdram to max capacity and now it is not responding


Max capacity stated on computer may be wrong or your using HIGH density memory which also won't work. Try your old memory and see if it still works. If it does leave half of the old memory in and put half new memory in and see if it boots. If it does then you must be over the memory capacity.

Motherboard specs


Hi dwman113,
Yes your Mach Speed MB will support 2x1 GB, Dual Channel Mode DDR2-800MHz, PC6400 memory modules. (Manual states the memory dimms should be paired).
Also known as matched memory.
Max Shared Video Memory is 256MB, refers only to the integrated built in video card.
Click this link to help you understand what CL stands for; http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/26/3
Small example. CL3 runs faster than CL5.
You can run any PCI-Express 16x graphics card & it can be rev 2.0. Graphics cards are backwards compatible which means it will also run at v1.0. You should not buy a SLI card because you only have 1 PCI-E x16 slot. To run SLI, (Hooking up 2 PCI-E x16 cards together viva a small SLI connector) your motherboard would need two PCI-E x16 slots & the board must support SLI mode & your's does not. Here is the main web site link for your Mach Speed MSA2-6100V MB.

If you have any more issues or questions just post it & we'll go from there.

Good luck dwman113!

Upgrading ram


Hi reisrui, yes it is odd. (It's not the first time I have seen this.)
According to you're manual on page 6, under Specifications. The manual say's you can run up to a Max speed of PC3200 400MHz, 1GB in slot one. In slot 2 you can run a Max of 1GB of PC2700 333MHz in slot 2. Every motherboard I have come across that can run two different speeds of memory. The system will reduce the Max speed to the lower MHz memory speed. If you currently are using 512MB PC3200 400MHz in slot 1 & add 1GB of PC3200 400MHz into slot 2 for a total of 1.5GB of memory. The motherboard will ruduce the total memory over all speed to PC2700 333MHz. Motherboards alway run at the lower memory speed if two different speeds are presant.
I can’t be 100% sure of the 1GB of PC3200 400MHz into slot 2, will run at all! Or if it will be reduce down to 333MHz. I am sure you can run 2GB of PC2700 333MHz, 1GB of memory per slot in you're board for a total of 2GB.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

If this is your board, it only has DDR support upto DDR400 (pc3200) upto 2gig, not DDR2 support.

All the rest of the specs are on the page anyway, so pointless repeating them all.

Ram DDR2


Hi Terry, you're board, PC Chips P23G only supports a max memory of 2GB. Please check pg. 9 of your manual, Installing Memory Modules.
Please be noted you can NOT use DIMM DDRII 1~2 (DDR2 533/400) and DIMM DDR1~2 (DDR 400/333) simultaneously. Only use either DDR2(533/400) or DDR(400/333) memory modules! (You should check the spec's of the other board before inserting memory that may not be supported). (You can damage the memory)
Click the link listed below for you're PC Chips P23G board.
Suggest you save this link to you're favorites.
http://www.pcchips.com.tw/PCCWeb/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?MenuID=92&LanID=2&DetailID=387&DetailName=BIOS

You will notice there is a fix for:
Patch code to fix REALTEK clock buffer sometimes couldn't detect DDR2.
Once there, click BIOS. Scrol down to the bottom of the page & read special notes. Than click the drop down menu & pick a download site. Creat a folder on you're desktop to store the download. Uncompress the .zip file. You will than have a folder named 070115 & a ROM file named 070115.ROM
This bios flash program requires you to use a floppy disk drive to flash the bios.
Follow the instruction at this link to flash you're bios.

If you find to hard to folow you can pick another from this google search site.

Msi 654e max atx mother board


If your manual states a max of 2.2GHZ then, take it as that, when your board was made the bios and bus speeds would be set at the maximum to run a 2.2GHZ, not a 3GHZ, also the heat sink and fan may not be enough to cool the processor. The only way that a 3GHZ would run was if you updated the bios and personally i would not recommend it. You would be better advised updating the board and processor as a package ot fitting more memory if the pc is not used for gaming or high end video editing.
