According to the specs of this laptop model, it supports up to 4 GB of DDR2 533/667 MHz memory using two soDIMM modules. This means that you will have to replace the 512 MB memory module already installed in your laptop, & replace it with 2 soDIMM DDR2 533/667 MHz memory modules, each of 2 GB capacity.
How can I reinstall my acer orbi cam my daughter deleted it and now I cant get it back, can you please help and I have Windows Vista or can you suggest some better that will work with windows vista cause it was not working
If you're runing Vista, there is an issue with Orbi cam. It won't work on Acer 5000 series machines. Here's a link that may help. Read what it says and follow the directions. I know it says the drivers are for an Acer 9300, but it won't hurt your machine to try them, they just simply won't work. http://www.theacerguy.com/2007/05/29/acer-orbicam-fix/
If you're running XP you will need to reinstall the drivers. since you don't have the disc, try driverguide.com.
Best is to do system restore.System restore is under
With system restore you can go back to previous date your cam was working fine.Its just like a time machine.So try to back to the previous date and check out which date make the cam work.
Give it sometime to config and maybe it have to restart your computer.
Best of luck,takecare.
Start - Programs - look for Acer Empowering technology Acer E-recovery - choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say extracting) - once extracted - click Install - click Vista on the left - click Drivers - click Camera or CCD - on the right side of the screen, click a phrase that has something like "Install now", follow on screen instructions.
** Note ** When the My Pictures or Pictures folder gets full, camera will not work - Cut and Paste all pictures in that folder to another folder and restart Orbicam program.
