Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook

4 Answers

Acer Aspire 5315

My wife has had her laptop for about 5 months, it is running Vista. She finds it very slow compared with my Toshiba. Is it possible to speed it up, would changing the RAM help? It has 1gb at the moment. I am able to change boards etc without to much trouble but that is the limit of my experience.
Any advice please

    Thanks for your help. I have purchased and fitted 2x1gb boards (Kingston), my wife hasn't tried it yet but I didn't think it made a great deal of difference.

Hi there,
i would recommend doing a memory upgrade to at least 2 gigs ram... this should work fine for vista ... and make her experience a better one.

as it relates to changing your laptop motherboard ... you are right ... its a bit on the expensive side if u are looking for an upgrade....

I have a friend who has an Acer Aspire 5315 running Vista and it was pretty slow right out of the box with 1gb of ram. I upgraded his Ram to 2gb and it ran moderatly faster and smoother. Vista is a demanding OS because it's so graphical in nature. Windows Vista requires more ram then XP plus a better CPU to run smoothly. His had a 1.6ghz Celeron which is not that great of a CPU to begin with but uping your ram will usually up your performance a few degrees. Be careful with cheap ram it can run hot and unstable. Make sure go with a name brand PNY, Corsair, Kingston, etc. Don't just buy House ram (generic) because it's cheap. It's not worth wasting your money on junk ram.

Hope this helps. M~

I have the same problem, only my Acer 10.1" is terribly slow out of the box. Had it for about a month now. It has 1G of RAM and an XP operating system. Would an upgrade work or even be possible on this computer?

Acer 5315 goes to black screen with cursor


If it's only 5 months old, then it's still under warranty. Right now, I'd advise taking it back to have it fixed instead of taking it apart to replace hardware and possibly voiding a warranty.
