How do I fit extra memory in my acer aspire z series


If there is no Random Access Memory (RAM) compartment cover on the rear or underside of this computer, then, as is common with All-In-One (AIO) computers, a degree of disassembly is required in order to access the RAM Module slots internally.
If so, unless you are experienced at the disassembly and internal repair or mopdification of AIOs, Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) or Light Emitting Diode (LED) Personal Computer (PC) Monitors and LCD or LED Televisions (TVs), my advice would be to take this computer in to have the RAM upgrade performed by an authorized Acer Service Center.
The internal areas of AIOs, LCD, LED PC Monitors and LCD or LED TVs are u highly unsafe and inexperienced user-unfriendly working environments because such devices contain Electrolytic Capacitors (e-caps) that are storage devices capable of storing dangerous and even lethal charges, even when the device is completely disconnected from the mains electricity. Some capacitors can store charges as high as several tens of thousands of volts.


The aim would be to remove the back panel.

Often (but not always) with AIOs, LCD, LED PC Monitors and LCD or LED TVs, the key to removing the back cover lies in first unscrewing and removing the stand.

Look out for hidden screws, particularly deep-set screws, some of which might even be completely obscured by a warranty sticker or other label, meaning that upgrading the RAM in this computer within its warranty period might invalidate the warranty unless the upgrade is performed by an authorized Acer Service Center.

When the rear cover is removed (some additional internal panels might need to also be unscrewed/unclipped and removed), you should have access to the four RAM Module slots. Two slots should be free and the remaining two occupied, each containing a single (2048 Megabytes) otherwise referred to as 2 Gigabyte (Gb) RAM Module, because the standard RAM specification of this computer is 4Gb. The maximum specified RAM for this computer is 8Gb, meaning that either one or two 2Gb Modules can be added during a RAM upgrade.

The specifications of the RAM Modules for this computer are:

240 Pin 1.8v DDR3 PC3-1066 Non-ECC Dimm (240 contact elements, 1.8 volt, 1066 GigaHertz Oscillation Cycle Clock Speed, 3rd Generation Double Data Rate, Non Error Checking and Correction, Dual Inline Memory Module).

Monitor wont recieve signal from computer aspire m3641


Your Acer Aspire computer system is not POSTing, or passing the Power On Self Test.

Claim warranty support before trying the following as opening the chassis in some cases voids current warranty.

Open the side panel of the computer chassis and remove the RAM modules. Clean the gold fingered connectors of the RAM modules with tissue paper. Once completed clean the actual RAM slots/dimms on the mainboard. Carefully use a vacuum cleaner.

Reinstall the RAM modules in the correct orientation. Power on the computer system.

Also see my published guides for more detail and further solutions as posted below:

Cd stuck in my acer aspire L3600 which doesnt have a drawer


The L3600 doesn't have an emergency hole so you need to disassemble the cover. MAKE SURE IT'S UNPLUGGED FROM THE AC POWER BEFORE GOING FURTHER! I would only suggest this if your warranty has run out. Remove the screw at the back under the warranty label then slide the top cover backwards and remove it. You will see 3 strap type black plastic catches towards the front of the computer, lift each one to unclip the front then lay it forward (it will still be attached by a cable, leave it connected). You should then see a metal catch under the CD/DVD Drive, lift it then slide the CD/DVD player out of it's housing, remove the Ribbon Cable at the back but make sure you know how to reconnect it. Remove the 3 small screws from the top and the two on the side holding the metal cover on top of the Drive then take the cover off, you should now be able to lift out the CD. Do the reverse of the above to reassemble your computer and there you go.

Cd stuck in Acer Aspire L3600


If you look on the door of your cd drive next to the button you push to eject the cd there is a small hole.  This is essentially the ememrgency release.  Unfold a paper clip and push it straight into the hole.  Once it releases you will feel the paperclip pushing down on a button.  you will feel and hear the drawer release.

My acer computer will turn on but wont come out of hibination mode


Some laptops have issues with Windows XPs hibernation mode. To get the computer back up again you should just hold the power button down until it shuts off completely. Some laptops won’t shut off even if you do this. When this happens you have to take the battery out to get it to turn off. Make sure it is not plugged into the wall when you do this otherwise it wont work.

Once you get the computer back running again you may want to disable hibernation if it seems like its going to keep happening. Go to Start, Settings Control Panel or Start, Control Panel and go to the Power Options icon. Change the hibernation section to never. You may want to try standby as an alternative. Standby saves all your running applications and documents into RAM while hibernate saves them to the hard drive. Hibernate uses less power from your battery, but it will take you considerably longer to get the computer back up. If you always plug the computer in then you may want to disable standby and hibernate since you really dint need them while plugged in.

Let me know if this works.
