Memory upgrade for laptop

Got an ECS elite group laptop model green 320 with a 256 mb sodimm. tried upgrading with a 512 mb pc400 sodimm but the system keeps sending a continuous short beeping sound. is it incompatible? the 512 mb sodimm works fine with an acer laptop so i know it is a working memory module. the laptop is working okay with the current 256 sodimm but i need to upgrade to 512mb for obvious reasons. do i need to reset the cmos settings. i cant see a reset button, do i need to open the case? what is the most compatible spec for the sodimm?

Older laptops can be VERY fussy about the memory ... you have to have the exact same 'speed' .. I had a similar problem after trying to upgrade an old machine that took slow memory (PC100) with a FASTER (PC133) module ...

NB> Some VERY old machines would not take 'double sided' modules ... check the manufacturers specs ..

What is the maximum memory capacity for the MX6027 model ?


Hello Marc,

The maximum is 1 GB. Standard, it comes installed with 256 MB but you upgrade with additional 256 MB or 512 MB memory modules. The modules you are looking for are:

256 MB DDR (1 x 256 MB) SODIMM (PC2700) 2.5v SYNC
512 MB DDR (1 x 256 MB) SODIMM (PC2700) 2.5v SYNC

There are lots of places on the web to find decent prices for this memory. I have included a few below.

http://www.pcmemorystore.com/Gateway-M_Series_Notebooks-MX6027-ram.htm

http://www.computermemoryoutlet.com/Gateway-M_Series_Notebooks-MX6030-memory.htm

This document includes instructions for replacing the memory. It's a simple straightforward process.

I have Acer laptop Aspire 5570z module Zr1 with memory 1GB I want to increase memory 2GB or 3GB Is it possible or not What will be the expenditure?


Your laptop's RAM is upgradeable to up to 4 GB using two DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM modules.

So your upgrade options here are:
1. Buy a 1 GB DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM module & install it to get a total RAM of 2 GB (Price around US$ 25).
2. Buy a 2 GB DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM module & install it to get a total RAM of 3 GB (Price around US$ 45).
