    i have the same problem.. i had 2 512meg mem chips.. added a 1gig chip.. and it only read 1750.. so i thought i had a defective chip.. bought another 1 gig chip..and no change !

    I am using the motherboard video out now, since the video card i had installed would cause the system to fail to boot everytime vista had a new patch installed !

    Any help would be appreciated

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.

Good day,

Theres no need to jumper anything in upgrading your Ram, Just remove the 256 mb rams and replace it with your 512mb ram. Then try turning your PC on.

It have 500MB memory it need to upgrade to 1Gb or more is in this processor


memory is on memory cards. You can install up to four gigs on most laptops if they are newer models and this depends of course on your operating system. Its best to remove the 500 mb and install one two gig memory card. DDR2. You will find that even one gig is not enough for modern computers. You need at least two gigs.

I have an Acer am5100-u5301a. Is there a bios upgrade?


If the specs read that you can operate with 4GB of RAM, then I believe the AMD690g chipset is not the culprit.

The RAM that you're adding may be defective, or incompatible with the existing RAM.

Another possibility could be a bad RAM socket.

I also doubt you would get a black screen due to adding more RAM than the system is capable of handling, it would still start, but would not utilize the additional RAM.

Black screen usually means bad RAM or incompatible RAM or bad socket

I think you are out of luck with this. You can try upgrading the RAM, but I believe you will still be disappointed. Vista requires a huge amount of hardware resources and many drivers are not available yet.

Install Windows XP or try one of the Linux distributions. I prefer Fedora Core myself, but for many, Ubuntu is an excellent choice.

Graphics upgrade


As long as you have a open vga, vga e, or pci slot in your computer you should be able to install a new video card. the Acer website says your motherboard supports up two gigs of ram, I am not sure how much ram you are running but if it is under 1 gig I would consider upgrading that also. as far as a graphics card goes get one that has at least 512 mb of its own ram so it dosent pull from your system ram as I am sure your current on-board card is doing. Another couple of hints are: if you are running Windows Vista you they call for 1 gig ram for optimal performance, also it is very important that you un-install any graphics drivers before you install new ones, and when you install the new card read the instructions completely before you do anything.
hope this helps
