try fitting 2 different modules in the orange slots, and 2 different modules in the purple.
Also ensure that you have the ram configured correctly in the systems bios setup page.
If they are cutting out, or continually restarting the computer, you,ll probably have to enable Dual Channel Ram configuration in the Bios.

    thankyou for the poor rating.

    To enter the bios statup computer, and press F2 or esc Or delete. this will take you into the bios setup.

    Please do not rate any further posts until your problem is solved.

    As this is a discredit to anyone trying to help you.

    Many thanks mike.

    this depends on the Bios. whether its pheonix/AMI or similar.

    I think it,ll be on the first page, you should see relating to single channel/dual channel et,c.

    i had some problems with dual channel ram, my board did,nt like it. so i readjusted in the bios to run single channel. and no problems. no worries with the rating, i,m sure you don,t understand fixyas rating system. if an expert gets rated innapropriate or thanks for trying, their status percentage drops.

    so you can go from a wiz to an apprentice, depending on how users rate you. any probs post back here, and i,ll help you out.

    regards mike @ Compurepair.

    best wishes mike.

I have recently upgraded my brothers Acer T180 computer with approved crucial 2 x 1GB ram ddr2 PC2-5300 667 NON ECC UNBUFFERED CL5 which was scanned by the crucial website and purchased from them. When the...

Some motherboards are only upgradable to their allotted amount that board may only handle up to 2 gigs of RAM which is a shame. But this is the way it is. That is why I always check the board memory capacity before I buy computer boards or RAM for them. The beeps indicate error on the slots for the RAM that is why you can start up when you remove ram one at a time and replace. So use the allotted amount of RAM for that board specification or get another mother board that can handle more than 2 gigs of RAM. Sorry for the loss. Thanks for using FixYa! John

I want to fit some extra memory to my Acer Aspire 9300. Which door do I open on the bottom of the notebook. thanks.

You can adding RAM to your Acer Laptop by following the below steps.

1 . Unplug your laptop from the AC power source and remove the battery.

2 . By unplugging the power connector you will be safe from shock.

3 . Locate the memory access door for the main memory module. It should be on the back of your computer.

4 . Unscrew the memory access door and remove it.

5 . Remove the RAM module by applying gentle outward pressure to the securing clips on either side of the RAM module until they release.

6 . Rotate the RAM module upward to a 45 degree angle and slide it out of the slot.

7 . Align the new RAM module with the tab in the connector slot.

8 . Slide it firmly into place and gently rotate it downward until it clicks into place.

9 . Replace the memory access door.

10 . Replace the battery and power up the computer. It should recognize the added memory and reconfigure itself for use.

Hope the above information will be helpful to you.
Thanks for using Fixya.

I want to reformat my acer aspire 5570 notebook and at the same time to up-grade it into 2 GB RAM memory.I"ve already got the prescribed RAM chipset

Hi, you have not said what operating system you are using, so its difficult to help with reformating. But have you tried system repair, by putting your operating CD into drive?. Repacing your ram could not be easier, just unscrew the panel underneath and replace with new chip.

Can i change 1 gb ram to 4 gb ram of tablet pc

Unfortunately the maximum amount of memory that the Acer Aspire One can have is 1/5Gb of ram. This can only be achieved by fitting 1 x 512Mb ram and 1 x 1Gb of ram.

You can put more memory in but it simply wont recognise it.

I hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Acer Aspire E380 memory

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.
