SOURCE: Acer Aspire T-180 Memory Upgrade question

hello!

You can buy 2- 512 mb DDR2 memory. It should be the same spec with the two current memory.
Memory should be the same specs and capacity, you insert it to your slot 4-1GIG to maximize, in your setting i recommend another 2-512mb bcoz your current memory is 512 mb capacity.

Not advisable to insert diferent capacity or diferent brand memory bcoz it cause damage to the mainboard and memory also.

Up to 4 GB of DDR2 533/667/800 MHz SDRAM (dual-channel support on four DIMMs)


in your case, you can add more 2-512mb memory, DDR 2 refer to your current memory about about this number. 533/667/800 and follow.

SOURCE: Upgrading ram in an acer aspire sa80

I've read up on the 661GX-M7 by looking at the manual at http://eudownload.ecs.com.tw/dlfileecs/manual/mb/eng/p4/661GX-M7.pdf all it does is agree with what you've done. It should be able to handle 2GB of DDR400 without a Bios update and Kingston's definitely one of the best to go with. All I can think is that it's not the RAM. If you're alright inside a PC case try breaking it down to a bear minimum, so just graphics card, memory and processor and see if it acts ok like that. If it's not then one of those things is setting it off and you might have a dodgy stick or you might have handled the memory too much. If it's ok, then plug one thing in at a time and retry until you find the culprit.

SOURCE: How to Upgrade to max RAM

The Acer Aspire One can be upgraded to a total RAM of 2Gigs. This will allow for you to upgrade to Windows XP Pro and also to Microsoft Office 2003 as there is no version of Office Professional. If you would like more specifics on your particular model, please look here. http://www.laptopmag.com/review/laptops/acer-aspire-one-10-inch.aspx?page=3

Upgrading RAM is a fairly simple process. As this is a fairly compact laptop in design, you will have to upgrade to a new 2Gig RAM module and basically discard (or sell) the one you end up removing. In order to find out the type of RAM you'll need, remove the cover as show in the picture and the info for the existing RAM should be written on it.

Good luck!

First thing to try, is to do a system restore. You can go back to an earlier time. Pick the lastest time right before you installed the updates. System restore should be found in the Control Panel.

Need SATA HDD password for acer aspire 5100


When everything gets done loading the screen says:

Unknown Disc
<There is no disk in this drive.>

it gives that error message 4 times on the "select partition" list

Reguardless of what i click (besides Quit) being Install or Delete, I get the Blue Screen of Death

"PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA"
Technical Information
STOP: 0x00000050
setupdd.sys Address F77F8245 base ar F77CA000

I did some research and I came up with possible RAM faultyness, so, I switched the RAM chips from my Acer to the AW (which obviously work, or else i wouldnt be typing this) and i get the identical blue screen error

What bugs me about that specific error is before it even says "Click button to boot from CD" it says RAM cleared... video shadowed etc. etc.

From beginning to end this is what i did:
1. Swapped out new HD
2. Used Utility disc to set-up HD
3. Attempted to install XP
4. swapped RAM chips
5. Attempted again

im at a complete stump to what to do to fix this... any help would be GREATLY appreciated

Trouble after RAM upgrade


sounds more like a compatibility issue with the new ram. Take it or send it back and get a different brand. Or better yet was it running bad to begin with, before them ram upgrade? If so you prolly loaded down with adware and spyware, possibly even a virus. I would suggest doing some good maintenance if thats the case.

No problem want to upgrade


There are lots of possibilities Rob. Endless, I would say. Looking at your specs you could spend up to $400 or $500 depending on what you want.

RAM - $50 to max out @ 4GB
Graphics - $100 to $200 for a good PCI-Express card w/512MB
Sound - $50 to $100 for a good 7.1 card
CPU - $100 for a Pentium Dual Core 2.7GHz with 800MHz FSB

These prices are from www.tigerdirect.com which would be a good place to start.

One thing to consider is the price of a new computer compared with an upgrade. Sometimes you are better off just getting a new one. Again, it depends on what you want...and can afford.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.

Acer Aspire E380 memory


Hi pimp69,
You can only use components compatible with Aspire series computers. Before you choose new components, please ask your authorized Acer dealer whether the part will operate within your Aspire series system. This is noted in your manual pg. 6.
Compatible memory for your Acer. Don't forget your Acer uses an intergrated graphics card that uses your system memory to function.

Good Luck & Kind Regards.
