Try using a laptop cooler (cheap) this solved my problem with my aspire 4520 laptop too.

try shutting your laptop off after using it for 6 hours... give your laptop a rest for 1-2hours

if your a hardcore gamer/computer user laptop cooler is good for you.

Your memory modules might have problems, or the memory slot is has a short circuit. Try to change your memory modules or have your memory slots cleaned and checked for foreign particles.

My acer aspire 4520 wont start


Computer does not boot upThe problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needsreseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up thenremove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop andget them to test the RAM for you.

Acer aspire one running ubuntu 10.4, does a good job, using 1gb ram. But screen periodically greys out to black and white and freezes for a short period of time - less than one min. Ideas on what is going...


With Ubuntu 10.4, 1GB will run it, but sometimes it will need a bit more, so consider putting in another 1GB stick. With 2GB it's almost flawless.

Other than that... the reason it seems that the screen greys out is because the OS is not responding well to the driver for the video in the laptop. I would look up the drivers for it, and see if there is an updated version that Ubuntu might take.

In my opinion, it might be a combination of the two things I stated above. The blacking out might occur due to the driver, but the length of time might be affected by the RAM.

Surely to load XP is a DownGrade. As this notebook is dual core, I would run Vista 64 or better still Windows 7 64.
If you wish to persist with an old system, you require SP3 for XP.That may be available from a software store but is no longer supported by Windows.
Try http://www.notebook-driver.com/laptops-information/acer-aspire-4520-notebook-technical-specifications/ for drivers that you will require to have support from Acer.

Hope that clarifies your situation.

Acer aspire one slow running on skype video


That system is upgradeable to 2 GB DDR2 RAM (one stick) which would probably help, but if not there's really nothing else upgradeable in that system. Going with the current costs of RAM (when shopping online, like at newegg or zipzoomfly) it would be worth it to upgrade it just to give it a try and see if that does help.

I have an acer aspire 4520 laptop that power on but off within 3 seconds, i removed both Ram and HDD but still same problem. i check it with battery and on adapter and without battery ?


The problem is due to overheating of the CPU. you need to open the system and clean it with an air blower mainly near the processor areas with an air blower, this will most probably solve your problem.

But if the problem still persists, check whether the CPU cooling fan is working properly or not.

That's it.

How much maximum ram does acer aspire 4520 support? and is it fine if we have one ram of 2 gb and the other of 1 gb?


Your machine currently has this ram (1GB DDR2 667 SDRAM)

You can upgrade to 4GB DDR2 800MHz ram, sell old one off.
If you use old ram you must exactly match to old in speed, ie 2GB ddr2 667 SDRAM.

I recommend renew with matched larger faster ram 2 + 2 GB DDR800

Acer Aspire 5315


I have a friend who has an Acer Aspire 5315 running Vista and it was pretty slow right out of the box with 1gb of ram. I upgraded his Ram to 2gb and it ran moderatly faster and smoother. Vista is a demanding OS because it's so graphical in nature. Windows Vista requires more ram then XP plus a better CPU to run smoothly. His had a 1.6ghz Celeron which is not that great of a CPU to begin with but uping your ram will usually up your performance a few degrees. Be careful with cheap ram it can run hot and unstable. Make sure go with a name brand PNY, Corsair, Kingston, etc. Don't just buy House ram (generic) because it's cheap. It's not worth wasting your money on junk ram.

Hope this helps. M~
