 You probably meant 3.6 GB which means that you have installed a 32-bit OS which can't recognize more by design. If you want to have all memory recognized and utilized you will gonna have to reinstall again, this time using a 64-bit OS.

Problem with upgrading my acer extensa 5620z memory to 4GB


Hi there.
I recommend you get another stick of SODIMM to replace what seems to be the faulty stick.
If you are using XP or Vista X86 (32bit) then the system will only recognize 2.8 - 3GB of memory, only 64bit operating systems recognize the full 4GB.


Good luck ad thanks for using FixYa!!

Acer Aspire 5584WXMI Upgraded Ram


All ram is not created equal.

You should check on the Laptops manufacturer website support pages. They should have a list of know ram manufacturers that have been tested with your laptop.

Check in the manual to see if the ram may have to be installed in pairs.

Also, be sure the new ram is seated properly in the slot.

The ram may not be fully compatible with your laptop.

Acer aspire 5600 does not boot up


If you upgraded RAM to 4GB that is exactly what is going to happen. The ACER 5601 AWMLi does NOT support 4GB. Flashing the bios will NOT solve this problem.

Acer Aspire 5310 Memory Upgrade


It could be that one of the chips are faulty and/or are not exactly the same model because faulty chips and ones that have confliction can cause chips to not load properly. It could be that the socket for the ram is faulty as well. Usually you can install 4GB of RAM without the need of a BIOS update
Give this a try for the BIOS

Updating BIOS


You need to upgrade your bios.
Heres the link the software.

ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/notebook/aspire_5630/bios/Bios%203.23.zip

You will need winzip or winrar to open the zip file just google either if you dont have them you can get them for free.

You then need to open the folder you just uncompressed and you will see another zip file, winflash is in there. it will allow you to flash the bios from within windows, just install it and follow the instructions on your screen
