The aspire uses the normal DIMM modules
512MB 184pin PC3200 DDR DIMM.
1GB 184pin PC3200 DDR400 2.5V nonECC nonRegistered low profile DIMM.

And you can plug in and IDE Harddrive upto make 160 GB on this system , for a bigger hdd . you would either need windows xp service pack 2 or the drivers from the manufacturer

How to completely format an acer z5771

Okay assuming that your bios still comes up.. if so pop in the windows 7 disk and go to bio settings select that your cd drive or dvd drive whatever it is that you use as primary boot so that it detects the windows 7 disc. But if you don't get bio settings then what I would do is take hard drive out and take it to a friends or a different computer and have it as a slave or seconds hard drive then when you load up go to my computer right click that drive and find options for reformat or manually delete everything off that drive.

Acer aspire t 160 wont boot after ram installation

When purchasing RAM make sure ram modules are of the same brand any type
IE corsair ddr3 low density or hynix high density ddr2 you should always try to keep the same brand and type of ram
reason being the compatibility issue

and always place the largest ram module closest the CPU central processing unit

also check the ram sockets for dust and make sure the ram modules are securely seated you can do this by pressing the levers at either end of the ram sockets.

If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the

Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.

First you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system.

You should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility before making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible.

You could put the old ram back in your computer and see if it starts then you will know if its the ram.

Hope this helps.

Why do I have 2 hard drives (c & D)? Can they be combined into 1 (c)? Also I only have 1 gb of ram and I need more. Is it upgradable to 4 gb of ram? If so where can I buy the additional ram?

But you have to reformat the harddrive and then install windows.
with a CD
You do a fdisk, rermove all drives, then make a new drive with no additions. Then you format it using thorough , not quick format
