SOURCE: ACER Aspire T180 Upgraded and and now freezes

I have the same PC. I have a couple of POSSIBLE solutions for you.

First, it turns out this MB is REAL picky about its memory so make sure all your RAM modules have the same spec's (Manufacturer, speed, timings etc....) and make sure that if you only have 2 modules that you use two that are the same color as these are the match pair.

Second, seeing as you spent money on Corsair RAM you may be a serious gamer and probably have other upgrades on your system. The power supply that comes with this Unit is only a 250W PSU. Hardly enough for the base unit itself. If you want to do any serious computing tasks with this PC I would recommend upgrading your PSU to at least a 450W unit.

Hope this helps

Dave

SOURCE: Processor update..

The problem with Store bought PCs is that there is no way to tell how fast a proccessor you can safely put into one before it becomes overclocking, but in theory your exact motherboard should support an AMD Athlon X2 5800+ 1000 Mhz FSB. Now if your willing to take a risk, you could buy a 6400+ but be warned, the computer may not recognize it, or it may just underclock the proccessor, if the processor supports 800 Mhz FSB. I said the 1000 Mhz FSB because it can underclock to that speed, and also because they no longer offer 800 Mhz flavors at the sites i order from. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Need to know how to upgrade processor in an Acer

here is a link that should help.. the only thing i can add is make sure you note and pay special attention to the orientation of the processor. Specifically where pin one is, if this is your first time doing it take a picture of the processor area so you can note which corner pin 1 is when you insert the new chip... Also make sure you have a static srap attached to your wrist leave the computer plugged in but turn of the switch on the surge protector and ground yourself to the chasis of the pc.

See link below for additional info, read it in it's entirety before you attempt.

SOURCE: want to upgrade my proccesor

OMG!! doogie812, quit giving people bad advice. From what you have suggested, you know nothing about computer hardware. You can upgrade the processor in this system and it will not effect the OS one bit, except make it process the data a little quicker. With this system, if you had done any research at all, it only comes with 1GB of memory, you should of suggested to this person to add more memory.

Want faster processor for acer x1300 it base unit


Here are the spec on your pc if the information you gave me is correct. You can only upgrade the cpu to the socket you have. I think you would be better off adding more RAM and a better video card that isn't onboard. Processor / Chipset
  • Type AMD Athlon X2 7450 / 2.4 GHz
  • Number of Cores Dual-Core
  • 64-bit Computing Yes
  • CPU Qty 1.0
  • Max CPU Qty 1.0

I want a dual core processor upgrade


You listed this under PC Laptop? It's a Desktop? Have you ever done a CPU upgrade? You are limited to what will work with your machine, Mobo and other components. Your Mobo is, of course, AMD compatible, so if you read the specs: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireX1200/AspireX1200sp2.shtml The AMD Athlon X2 dual-core is best option. Memory is a easy option to increase speed a bit. Remember, with a 32bit OS the most memory it can use is 3.80 GB's More or Less. With a 64bit OS use more. I have done many CPU upgrades, you may not get the Speed/ processing increase you expect. After all, the components work in conjunction with one another. Do your research on Socket type, Pins, Power requirments, etc., etc.Check, Verify, then re-Check and re-Verify.
