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.

Probabilmente devi installare tutti i drivers, le porte USB non funzionano perche i drivers per l' USB sono in conflitto con altre peiferiche, installate automaticamente da Windows con i drivers sballati.

Qui C'e' la pagina dei downloads Acer , seleziona il modello e vedi se trovi i drivers:Acer Europe - Service & Support, Drivers & Utilities, Downloads

Questa dovrebbe essere direttamente la pagina del tuo modello :Acer Europe - Service & Support, Drivers

Se dopo aver installato i drivers hai ancora problemi, controlla se l'usb ha un bollino giallo, in tal caso il problema e' probabilmente windows, e puo esserci bisogno di reinstallare il sistema.

Prova a installare i drivers e vedi cosa succede.

Ciao e in bocca al lupo.

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: Video memory upgrade for an Acer Aspire 5100.

Sorry, but if it has intergrated video as you say then video card is NOT upgradable, simply because it does not have a card (It is intergrated into motherboard). That unit can take up to 4GB of ram 2GBX2 DDR2 PC25300 200pin SODIMM $56.00@ crucial.com. It is able to share an dditional 256mb of memory from system for a total of 512mb memory on video. With a little research u should also be able to upgrade the cpu.
Hope this helps good luck,
Dave

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!

Known ram issue


With the aspire 5100 series there is a known issue with ram that causes all sorts of glitches, freezing and reboot. Upon a ram test, the ram will say errors accross the board and replacing the ram will yield the same result. The fix is to update the bios firmware and it will resolve the ram issue. Go to acer's website and click on support and drivers, type in your model number and get the latest bios update..follow the bios update instructions on the site.

I have lost my lead to my acer laptop aspire5100 series model number BL51 19v .474Acan you help.I am a mature age person thanking you Pat


There are two solutions to this problem, Pat.

One is to buy the correct AC adapter (Charger) for the laptop.
Two is to buy an aftermarket AC adapter that will work for your laptop, but will also work for many other laptops.

1) http://www.usbphoneworld.com/acer-adapter-19342-65w-lc-adt01-aspire-5520-ac-acer-aspire-5100-ac-adapter.html?CAWELAID=950033775

The above is from a quick search. Your search may be better. Just put Acer Aspire 5100 charger, in your search box.

2) From another quick search,

http://www.atbatt.com/laptop-chargers/b/acer/m/aspire-5100.asp?utm_source=google&utm_medium=ppc&utm_keyword=Acer+Aspire+5100+Charger&utm_content=NAC-X90-22&utm_campaign=google0&gclid=CLeDr7qIlqsCFQ9S7Aodvn_TXA

Would also like to commend you for your intelligence.
Stating the Voltage, 19V, and the Amperage, 4.74A ,is a really intelligent thing to do.

(The charger MUST have 19 Volts for the Voltage. The Amperage (Amp's, or A), can be more)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Acer aspire 5100 BL51 windows 7 wireless driver


You will have to navigate this site; enter 'notebook', 'Aspire', and scroll to 5100; after that, you will have to choose 32 bit or 64 bit. That being said, Acer does not support Windows 7 yet-you can try the Vista drivers; more often than not they will work. One note-I cannot tell just from the info you supplied whether you have the Atheros or Broadcom chip-You should be able to determine that in Device Manager.
