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).

Opening the tower to add Ram memory


I happened to find a PDF on compaq's support site: if you use Ctrl+F in your web browser and put in DC5100MT it will take you down to the right place. Simply open this PDF if your favorite viewer and there's a whole series of images explaining how to take the panel off (page 4).

HOW DO I install new memory in acer aspire L320


First step would be to lookup your system specs either in your manual or at the Acer website. See what RAM is compatible with your system. Once this is done purchase what you need. Open the case and you should see the RAM modules & slots. If you are replacing RAM you will need to remove the old first. If you are adding to empty slots just line it up properly and seat it in the open slots. Close the case and reboot. System should automatically recognize the new specs. Make sure you disconnect power and properly ground yourself before touching anything inside your case. Hope this helps.

I want to upgrade the RAM, and when I opened the desktop the dvd is positioned over the memory slots. I CANNOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO REMOVE THE DVD TO SWOP OUT THE RAM


see if there the motherboard is secured onto a rack that can slide out of the casing. most newer computers have this feature. if not, you will have to unscrew the dvd drive from the casing to get to memory slots. unplug the drive, find the mounting screws, and remove the drive. remember to plug everything back up (power, interface cable, digital cable if present).

good luck.

Install new ram in Acer aspire L320?


Sorry- I have to disagree, One screw at the back releases the lid. Inside, the dvd/hdd sub-chassis has one screw holding it to a brass post on the mobo. Undo that, then lift the chassis slightly with it's plastic strap handle, so you can detach the two connectors from the SATA drive, and the ribbon cable to the DVD (careful you don't bust the latch).

Then the whole lump simply lifts out- and you can see the 2 memory cards. The one I've just looked at appears to have 2 x 512mb simms- so you could replace these with 2 x 1024mb DDR2 SDRAM simms, to give 2GB of ram, which is what Acer say is maximum.

Cheers- AL (Luton)

2350 added ram now computor will not boot


a couple things.

#1 Before you started inserting and removing RAM, did you have the power disconnected? Did you blead the stored power in the motherboard by holding the power button after unplugging? Not having power removed from the system can damage the RAM and possibly the slot.

#2 When inserting RAM, it is important to have the locking levers spread, align the keyways in the Memory slots, then when inserting the module, press down FIRMLY with both thumbs till the locking levers snap up and in to locked position without touching the levers. (If you pull the levers up, the RAM doesn't seat in the slot)

#3 when you power on, on the back of the tower are 4 LEDs marked ABCD they should flash on then off in difference sequences during post, then end with all for solid green. If some are amber then there is a HW problem ans you need to post the LED pattern (AAGG for example is a memory problem)

Most likely seating the RAM properly will solve the issue.

How do i install extra memory in my acer ferrari3000 there is only 1 visible slot but it can take 2 gb


According to the specs I found for the Acer Ferrari 3000, there are TWO slots for RAM -- and both are full, by default. If yours is configured that way, you would need to remove both DIMMs and replace them with the capacity you want. IOW, take out the 512MB (or whatever you have now) and install two 1GB DIMMs -- to total 2GB.

I hope this helps! If it does, please rate the solution. My goal is always FixYa or Helpful, never TFT or IA. Regards,
