What type of CPU do you have? Is it a pentium 3 or 4 or dual core?

Are you willing to buy in online or in the store (easier to match what you need)?

If you are going to get it in the store, turn your PC off and locate your RAM. IT will look like this.

Pop a chip out and look at your Mainboard's model number. It is somewhere printed on the mainboard most likely in white. Google it and get the specs to see how much ram it can handle. Take your chip down to Best Buy or your local computer store and get what you need.

There are levers on either side of the ram. flip those out and line up the chips. Press it in until both sides snap in. Put your biggest stick closest to the CPU. If your mainboard is dual channel you will see your 2 ram channels separated. Put identical chips on both sides.

Hope this helps you out.

How to Upgrade to max RAM


The Acer Aspire One can be upgraded to a total RAM of 2Gigs. This will allow for you to upgrade to Windows XP Pro and also to Microsoft Office 2003 as there is no version of Office Professional. If you would like more specifics on your particular model, please look here. http://www.laptopmag.com/review/laptops/acer-aspire-one-10-inch.aspx?page=3

Upgrading RAM is a fairly simple process. As this is a fairly compact laptop in design, you will have to upgrade to a new 2Gig RAM module and basically discard (or sell) the one you end up removing. In order to find out the type of RAM you'll need, remove the cover as show in the picture and the info for the existing RAM should be written on it.

Good luck!

My motherboard is 865pe NEO2-P, INTEL 865 CHIPSET BASED,IHAVE 889 MB OF DDR 184 PIN,AND A PRESCOT P.4.3GHZ INTEL PROCESSOR ABD NORTON ANTI YIRUS I REALLY DON'T WANT TO ADD MEMORY BUT I HAVE 4 DIMMS? AND HY...


You've to many programs running in the background. If you did a CTRL-ALT-DEL then hit applications you would see...also the Norton Antivirus eats up a lot of memory. If you uninstalled it and replaced it with AVG Free Edition which you can download from the Internet that would help. You have 4 DIMM slots. Which means you can put 1GB of RAM in each slot. If you did that your system would boot up in less than 30 seconds. You don't have enough RAM that's why it is slow. Upgrade the RAM and change the Anti-Virus and you'll be smokin again..good luck.

Replacing RAM in Dell Dimension 3000


Upgrading RAM will not affect your files. Just make sure you upgrade with compatible RAM & that you install it in pairs. So if you want 2 GB then you would want to be 2 x 1 GB RAM chips. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

RAM Upgrade


See there are limitations to Motherboard to support the amount of RAM. You must check out the motherboard manul to see how much maximum RAM you can have. The second issue as you think the speed will be increased, you are right but only if your softawre uses more memory than you have in RAM, because in this case OS swap the data from RAM to disk and it makes performance slow.

After all you can slightly increase the speed.

Thanks
