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 have an Acer Aspire T180 and would like to upgrade the memory and add a wi-fi card. can you advise what cards I need to purchase?


Memory:
Looks like the Aspire T180 takes DDR2 533/667/800 memory. This is pretty easy to upgrade. Check to see how many memory slots your computer has (Probably 4, might only have 2). You should probably just replace what you have with new memory.
I recommend this memory:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231122
It is 2x 2GB modules. 4GB of RAM is a good amount of RAM to have, you will see a noticeable performance increase.

WiFi:
I would recommend a USB wifi adaptor. It is easy to instal and most ones work well, even the cheap ones. Just stick it in the back of your computer and forget it it's even there.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833130066
I recommend this one, I have been using it for 2 years and have had no problems.

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.

Theamount of RAM you have affects how quickly you will experience your computerworking.

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.

Low RAM


your p.c has four slots for ram 533Mhz. if your ram is low then you can purchase extra ram to speed up your computers processing power. either 512Mb or 1Gb sticks are available for your motherboard at 533Mhz. if this is not sufficient then you will have to upgrade your board to a newer more powerfull model. changing motherboard is not replacing the whole computer. see computer repair shop or vendor.

My acer aspire t180 ua380a desktop comp will not post. I turn on the comp and the red light comes on but no green lights and again the comp will not post. I have reseated the ram and cpu.


If it won't post you have a bad memory chip or memory slot try a different slot. Do you have more than one stick of ram? if so remove one stick and try it in different slots, if it does not post then buy some new ram.

Ram


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.
