Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

Tried to upgrade the Acer Aspire One from 1GB to 2GB of RAM. Bought the DDR2 PC5300/667 MHz chip, removed the 1GB chip and installed the new. When the system boots and I press F2 to enter the setup menu, the 2GB of RAM is recognized but then Windows 7 will not start - we get a black screen. Are there settings we need to attend to, or is this upgrade simply not possible on this netbook?

    I was able to restart Windows by reloading the 1GB chip. Where did you find this information? My own research said it could take 2GB.

I have Acer laptop Aspire 5570z module Zr1 with memory 1GB I want to increase memory 2GB or 3GB Is it possible or not What will be the expenditure?


Your laptop's RAM is upgradeable to up to 4 GB using two DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM modules.

So your upgrade options here are:
1. Buy a 1 GB DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM module & install it to get a total RAM of 2 GB (Price around US$ 25).
2. Buy a 2 GB DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM module & install it to get a total RAM of 3 GB (Price around US$ 45).

I bought an Acer AO532h-2964 netbook, and I'm wondering: can I upgrade the RAM from 1 GB to 2 GB, and if so, which memory chip should I buy?


yes you can, your netbook can have a max of 2gb ram and a max module size of 2gb.
So you have 1gb pc 5300(ddr667) installed, and you can buy 1 more 1gb module, laptops use sodim.
Aria.com has a 1gb stick for £25

Acer systems are picky about the type of memory you use.
What is your RAM Speed on the old chips compaired to the new chip

You may have to reorder the same type of speed memory
