I have acer travelmate 2355nxc with 40 gb hdd. want to know how to increase its speed and capacity.


Hi, how are you?

To upgrade your laptop, you will have to verify the capacity for upgrade of your laptop.

The Acer Travelmate comes with:

  • Intel Celeron-M 360 Processor 1.4GHz
  • 256MB DDR SDRAM -
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs
  • 15" XGA TFT Screen
  • Intel 852GM 64MB shared graphics
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition

  • Based on this information, you can upgrade your memory depending on what type of memory your motherboard supports and how many empty slots for memory does your laptop have.

    The hard drive can be upgraded also depending on which hard drives does the BIOS will recognize.

    I will suggest to contact ACER and ask for the options and upgrades capacity.

    God Bless You!!!

    Hope it helps.

    You need uninstall programs that you don't use. This way you can free up some memory RAM. Also install a free program Advance Care _select free version- at download.com.

    Low on memory and speed


    If you want to upgrade your memory in your system, assuming this system has Internet access, you should visit the following website www.crucial.com I use this website myself and it's an excellent memory website. It has this free scanning utility which scans your system and it tells you how much memory you have installed in your system, it tells you what type of memory you have in your system and it also lets you know how much memory you can install in total. I have 2 gigabytes in my own system and I can upgrade to a maximum of 4 gigabytes in total.

    After visiting this website and using the scanning tool you will know where you stand. You can purchase the compatible memory that you need from this website. It's always best to go for the maximum amount of memory that your system can support. Watch this video on youtube also regarding the installation of RAM or memory in your system. Good luck.

    ACER Aspire L100 Desktop is dead?


    If the hard drive is OK then you can remove the hard drive from the desktop case, and insert the hard drive into a USB 3 1/2" hard drive adapter case, this should come with a power adapter. These are available at your friendly computer shop.
    Boot up the laptop then plug this USB hard drive adapter into the laptop's USB port. The laptop will see this as an external USB hard drive. You can open the various folders and files on this external drive and copy the folders and files to the laptop.
    You can delete the Windows folder and Program Folders on this external drive to free up disk space and use this as a back up drive etc.
    If you are not sure how to remove the hard drive and install it into an USB hard disk case, then I suggest you get a computer savy friend to help you.

    My acer aspire 3694 wlmi is really slow. i have got very little stored so dont know why


    you may need to give it a system clean up, go to the link below for CCleaner, it's free, no spyware and free updates.

    http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

    You may also need click on the startup section in ccleaner menu and remove any programmes you don't need to run on startup, and you may also have a virus or spyware, if you don't have antivirus programme, install AVG 8 free Edition from the link below, again free and no spyware, free updates and run it.

    My ACER Aspire 9301AWSMi has run out of space on its hard disk. When I checked, the ACER C drive is full, but the ACER D drive ir empty with 33 gb of free space but I don't know how to access it, as I...


    you just right click on the d drive and select explore or double click it, there won't be anything in the drive apart from maybe a system back up file.

    when in there make a new folder called programme files

    If you have a lot of programmes installed on your c drive, then uninsatl them and reinstall again, but when the option comes up to install in a specific folder choose 'D' drive then choose programme files folder, the programme will then be installed there, but will still put an icon on your desktop as normal.

    you can also transfer any video or music to the d drive, just make a folder in the d drive called music and video, select your music you wish to move select 'Cut' then open the folder on the 'D' drive and select paste.

    Also run this free programme to clear your system up

    Hi j0shuatsb,
    Acer like many other manufactures seem to design their system to fail or have issues just after their 1 year warranty is up. Like other Microsoft windows operating systems, when you receive an error message that you're memory is full. This does not mean you have run out of RAM = memory. You're notebook can only run a max of 4GB of memory. The error message refers to hard disk drive space. Depending on you're operating system, windows will lock out so much drive space so it can move about. All notebooks also have a hidden partition which holds drivers & programs used in combination for running the system restore.
    This hidden partition can range in size from 2GB up to 4GB.
    This also lessens you're total hard disk drive space. Bottom line is there is nothing wrong with your memory.
    What you need is a larger hard disk drive. Notice the Technical specifications from this link:
    http://www.acer.co.uk/public/page9.do?sp=page4&dau34.oid=24360&UserCtxParam=0&GroupCtxParam=0&dctx1=17&CountryISOCtxParam=UK&LanguageISOCtxParam=en&ctx3=-1&ctx4=United+Kingdom&crc=512458878
    It does not show what size you're SATA hard disk drive is.
    Since you are still in warranty, now would be the time to increase you're drive size. On another note, if you're HDD is the standard 160GB than there is an issue with your current HDD.
    Please run a full system virus scan.
    Suggest you back up all you're personal data on to a DVD & run you're system restore CD including a format to help you regain you're HDD full space. A temporary fix would be to uninstall any non needed programs through Add/Remove programs. This should free up some space. Many Acer programs you do not use at all or need should be the first to go.
