Make sure the new memory is the same as the old. Memory has a set frequency, this frequency matches the processor, so you can't just grab any memory and throw it in the machine and expect it to work. Memory will be rated as either PC or mhz, ie... PC100, PC133, PC2100, PC2600, PC4200, PC5300, 100mhz, 133mhz, 266mhz, 333mhz. These are some of the most common. Your memory should have a tag that tells what it is. If the old memory doesn't, give me the make and model of the machine and I can tell you what it is. If the old and new are the same, then one of the new may be bad, it happens.

Does the acer aspire 5315 2077 require a certain type of memory?


Go to www.crucial.com and click on the scan my system button to see what configuration of Memory Modules are installed on your laptop.

Here are some other details:

Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.
Chipset: Intel 960GML
Drive Form Factor: 2.5"
Drive Interface: SATA
Maximum Memory: 2048MB
Slots: 2 (2 banks of 1)
Standard Memory: 512MB removable
USB Support: 2.x Compliant

Q: What memory goes into my computer, and will a faster speed be backward-compatible?
A: DDR2 memory with support for DDR2 PC2-5300 speeds.

Q: How much memory can my computer handle?
A: 2048MB.

Adding the maximum amount of memory will improve performance and help extend the useful life of your system as you run increasingly demanding software applications in the future.

Q: Do I have to install matching pairs?
A: No.

No, you can install modules one at a time, and you can mix different densities of modules in your computer. But if your computer supports dual-channel memory configurations, you should install in identical pairs (preferably in kits) for optimal performance.

Q: Does my computer support dual-channel memory?
A: Yes.

COMPAQ LAPTOP MAMORY EXTEND


This laptop has 2 slots
Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700 with a maximum of 512MB per slot.
So maximum memory supported is 1GB.
If you install more memory there is a high probability it will not be recognised.

You can get more information and order memory from the link below:

How do you remove and replace dell laptop memory? (d600)


I dont know this particular model, but usually it's underneath the computer, there is one screw to remove and you can take out a door which gives you acess to the memory slots. If it's not there, you will need to remove the top cover to get there. But it's most likely a small door underneath the laptop.

Can't upgrade memory


According to the user manual for your laptop, it can only support pc-100 memory. If your going to upgrade your memory just make sure you use pc-100 and also the max amount of memory is 256mb in each slot so you would be maxed out at 512MB.

You can verify the info from this link from Dell:

Memory Upgrade problem


You have the correct memory, however, did you replace memory in both available slots with same capacity/clockspeed sticks? The below is from the Spec sheet for your computer.

512MB(min)/2048MB (max), 2 memory slots using 256MB, 512MB, 1024MB or 2048MB PC4200 DDR2 533MHz SDRAM,
dualchannel support requires two memory modules of same capacity and clockspeed

RAM upgrade is not working


A 200-pin PC-3200 SODIMM should work in your machine but it will clock down to 333MHz. Your computer has 2 slots with a max of 512MB per slot (1GB total system memory). For maximum compatibility you should stick with a low density (16-chip - double-sided) PC2700 DDR-333 SODIMM with a CL of 2.5. Link below to see an example:
