Are you sure your acer supports this type of ram ... check out the specs on the website first ... any ram sertting in the BIOS will be under advanced chipset settings ...

One possibility is a dead BIOS (CMOS) battery. If you open the case to expose the motherboard, searching you should find a flat silver battery, about the size of a quarter. On the surface will be a number, likely CR2032 (maybe CR2025). The current from this battery refreshes and maintains the volatile data in BIOS, such as date / time etc. If the battery died, the BIOS will return to factory default settings. In the event the system has been altered in some way (replaced hard drive, custom RAM with different voltage requirements...), default BIOS settings may block boot-up. How to test? Power up, enter BIOS, check time. If time/date are off, the battery has likely died. How to fix? The batteries are available many places (Radio Shack,, maybe Walmart.. ) for less than $1. Replacing the battery, powering up, entering & refreshing BIOS {AKA "setup"}, saving settings & exiting BIOS MAY trigger the system to boot, as BIOS is capable of self detecting settings for certain components.
{Note: replacing a dead battery first is recommended but is not technically required while testing. If plugged in, BIOS should retain settings between boots).
Depending on the BIOS and any hardware changes made "post-factory", booting MAY require determining and manually entering BIOS settings for non-factory components(e.g.: RAM voltage, timing, etc.). Custom BIOS settings and other complicated solutions are beyond the scope of this introductory "Quick Fix" solution.

I am going to assume that you are talking about RAM.

In which case you will never be shown the exact amount of RAM that you have installed. A certain amount of your RAM gets used as base memory, and therefore is not considered to be available ram.

In your BIOS there should be an option that says something like:

64mb memory OS2. You should enable this option if you are using a 2K operating system.

This option will most likely be under integrated peripherals.

Memory installation

all the DIM's must be of same type and same size to work, otherwise it creates problem, like no boot, boot with lowest memory etc.

There is no problem in your PC, its technical issue you can not use two ore more different type RAM at the same time in a motherborad.

How to fit more ram

go into the bios.
You should have a setting that says Single channel or dual channel. Usually on the first page of bios.
If the problem persists, without being able to set the bios configuration. put 1 stick of ram in bank 1, and 1 stick of ram in bank 2.
