Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook
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
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?
