Question about Acer Aspire L310 Desktop

1 Answer

How do you open an Acer Aspire L310 desktop PC to install additional memory? I have not been able to find a diagram/instructions on how to open the case. I am able to partially open the case, but when I try to lift the hard drive "cage", it hangs up and I am afraid to force it.

    I answered my own problem. To install additional RAM:

    1) remove the base/stand by removing the screw in the middle of the base/stand

    2) remove the top cover of the PC be removing the screw in the middle of the back of the cover and sliding the top cover back.

    3) detach the front panel by lifting the three plastic retainer clips on the top of the front panel and tilting the front panel forward

    4) remove the retaining screw for the drive cage. The screw is located just below the right side of the back of the hard drive.

    5) use the plastic ******** the drive cage to lift the cage out of the PC. It may be necessary to slightly spread the front edges of the PC case to free the drive cage. It is not necessary to remove any cables.

    6) the SODIMM memory chips are easily accessible on the motherboard near the front of the PC.

    7) after adding/replacing the RAM, replace the drive cage by lowering the drive cage back into place and resecuring the cage to the chasis with the retaining screw at the back of the drive cage.

    8) replace the front panel

    9) replace the top cover; replace the cover retaining screw

    10) replace the base/stand; replace the stand retaining screw

You're right...no diagrams or instructions for opening. User Guide is a useless guide.

You might try Acer's own support site here:

How to increase my gaming graphics of aspire L310 desktop


Your computer uses the Integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3000, which is built into your motherboard. Unfortunately, there are no additional drivers for your computer so performance can not be upgraded, in that sense.

What you can do though is increase the screen resolution (on the desktop and in game settings). This should allow for a sharper, clearer image and a better overall gaming experience

Aspire L310 Desktop: can acer aspire L310 desktop work with win xp and ...


Yes. I am currently updating an Acer Aspire L310 (lunchbox format) desktop.

Many of the drivers are contained on the XP installation disk and will automatically be installed when you install XP.

Other Drivers:

Assuming your L310 has the same hardware (may not), you can use the following Hardware detail to locate the drivers by typing in the hardware model into a search engine like Bing.

NIC - Marvell Yukon 88e8056 PCI-e GB; this driver can be downloaded from www.cnet.com. On this website, just type in the model info and it will direct you to the driver download.

Wireless NIC - Broadcom 802.11g; download from www.cnet.com

Display/motherboard chipset - Once you have installed XP and the NIC driver, go to www.intel.com and click on the "downloads/support" option. The website provides an autodetect utility that will identify your hardware and provide updated drivers.

Audio - go to Realtek website and select "downloads". Download/install the high definition audio driver for XP.

Once you are up and running with XP, run the Microsoft Windows Update utility and it will find updates for many of the essential drivers.

...hope this info helps

Hi

I'm not sure, please open the computer case and see if there is a free pci slot.

Note that opening the computer might void warranty.

Also, you would do fine with a USB Wifi adapter. cost around the same if not cheaper.

Thanks and good luck,
let me know if you need anything else.

I have an acer aspire desk top computer can i put a wireless card in it


The mini Acer uses a "small form factor" (SFF) and doesn't have room inside the case for standard expansion cards. These systems were not intended to be opened and worked on. You can still use a USB wireless adapter, though. Simply plug the adapter into an available USB connection on the rear panel, follow the adapter manufacturer's installation instructions, and you will have wireless capability.
