TravelMate 800 memory speed

I just got a TravelMate 800LCi which I brought to life again after switching some parts. It now runs as it should, but would benefit from more RAM (now 512Mb - I want at least 1Gb).
Acer specs says it has PC2100 DDR2 memory (266MHz). Some tips on the netforums I've visited says it can run with PC2700.
DDR2-memorys don't often comes with these low speeds, these SO-DIMMs are scarce and expensive, so I wonder:
Can faster memorys be mounted in this particular laptop?
(I know that it can't benefit from the faster speed they're designed for, but WILL IT WORK with, let's say - PC5400?)

Hello,

Probably not. Not in laptops where the northbridge chip is hardwired to run with one ram speed. However, you can try a faster piece of RAM from a friend. Better yet, is to go to Crucial.com or Samsung.com and use their memory configurator to find out for sure.

Upgrade to higher cpu speed travelmate 270


CPU speed is not going to make much of a difference. You need to increase RAM (random access memory). This will make a huge difference in speed performance.

Acer travelmate 5735z keeps beeping


You have an issue with your memory or a memory slot more than likely.

Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover on the bottom of the laptop that houses the memory then remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

You need to buy more memory and your system will fly. It can support up to 4GB of RAM. So buy 2x2GB RAM and here are the specs:

DDR2 PC2-5300 • CL=5 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR2-667 • 1.8V • 256Meg x 64

Another option is to take it to PC tech and pay around $50 or so for all of that...

Acer travelmate 4100 works fine with no battery


Try to use another OS, like Ubuntu Live, and see if the mouse and KB will freeze. If they wont freeze, It is better to reinstall the OS.

If they will freeze again with Ubuntu, then I am sorry to tell you that the battery life has finished.

The only thing to do is to replace it for another one new.


Thanks for rating!!

If you know how to disassemble your PC, check all the connections from the video card, memory card etc. clean the part that you have removed then return it back again. if you're not sure disassembling it, bring it to a computer guy to help you.
