This MB is real picky about its Memory.

Please make sure if your replacing in pairs that you have inserted Both modules into like colored slots.

And that both modules have the same manufacturer, and timings.

The memory that ACER ships with the unit does not play nice with Memory from other Manufacturers, resulting in an error message on occasional reboots.

Solutions if this is your problem
1. Ditch the ACER Memory
2. Pressing F1 when you see this message allows your computer to do a full POST and boot up properly

Hope this helps
Dave

While buying ram you should check the speed at which the ram is operating.generally the vendor will tell you that.and you also check the motherboard manual for the memory specification.
you can ask your vendor to change the ram.

I wanted to get my acer aspire T180-UA381B upgraded, and I know very little about computers, how much and what kind of ram should i put in to make it run fast


Based on your memory specs below the maximum RAM that you can install in your computer is 1GB
DDR2 SDRAM and you can get 1GB RAM for like $15 -$ 20. 1 GB DDR2 SDRAM is what you need to buy.

Your Memory Specs:
Installed Cache Memory: 256.0 KB
[close] Installed RAM: 512.0 MB RAM, or Random Access Memory, is the place in a computerwhere the operating system, application programs and data in current use arekept so that they can be quickly reached by the computer's processor. Theamount of RAM you have affects how quickly you will experience your computerworking.
[close] Installed Video Memory: 512.0 MB
[close] Max Supported RAM: 1.0 GB
[close] Number of Memory Slots: 4 x 240 Pin DIMMs

What programs conflict with this Z5600 system? put basic programs eg. office 2007, Firefox 3.6 browser, Google Chrome, AVG security, Google Earth + plug in. Screen locking up need to turn off/on to...


Have you got the latest Microsoft updates loaded? That can cause that especially with Google. I have not heard of any conflicts with FireFox. Office is suspect also if the Office updates are missing. Have you enough RAM to run all programmes at once? Check the specifications maybe.
Good luck.

Hi i bought 2x512mb 184-pin reg dimm 64mx72 pc3200 ram for my acer aspire t180 and i also have an acer 512 mb ram in the computer too. when i tried to install them they work fine but there was flashing...


Which ever stick of Ram you are able to use without the lines coming up is good. The other stick of ram is bad or not compatible with your unit. Running PC3200 means you're running DDR ram or a very slow DDR2 stick. I would suggest trying to get your BIOS version updated to the most current version but, this normally doesn't help. Very few cases have been fixed like this.

Other things to look for are specific numbers on the RAM like 1xR8 or 2xR8 because two different types can also cause your issue.

I work on computers all day as a profession, but it shouldn't take a licensed professional(no, I'm not licensed) to tell you something is up with that ram. If you can, get your money back and do some research on your specific board and pull up the specs via the Acer website and see what revisions of RAM are compatible with your unit and which are NOT.

Hope this helps.

I have a problem with the ram, using more than 700 MB it seems it get into conflict with the USB ports, and now after a few second windows starts, all USB ports die


Seems like the ram is faulty, i havent herd of ram conflicting with usb before, as the ram memory uses hex-demimal addresses from the processor and usb is port which use irq requests. I think your best bet is invest in a new ram stick.

No, usually, your PC if you have an integrated video card, will take away from your installed ram for 256mb of video dedication. Everything should be fine.
