    well, all that works might not be how it was meant to be done! i've been able to upgrade the ram.

    if the desktop was lying flat(on the black side) rather than standing up, the motherboard is at the bottom, open the top (silver panel). there is one screw at the back that needs to be undone. under the top panel you will see a metal plate with a plastic handle, this connects to the dvd drive. first take the front panel off (stretch, bend and slide, no screws involved) then lift the plastic handle in the metal plate to unattach that metal plate from the frame. note that the metal plate does not come off completely, i couldn't see what was keeping it connected at the back, but peeping in from the front (where the front panel was removed from) i could now see the slot for the ram. push and clip the ram, re assemble and reconnect. all is well that works well, phew!

You should first go to the Acer website, look up your computer model and see what type of RAM & upgrade suggestions Acer has posted (manufacturers will usually in their downloads & support or technical areas of their site concerning your model make such upgrade suggestions. These can be helpful in most cases when your no0t sure of what type of, or how much RAM you need buy for your upgrade.) concerning your model. You can then go from there to get more specific upgrade suggestions for your exact model. Please remember when installing RAM to be concerned about electrostatic discharge and wear a ground strap or at the very least touch the outside of your case before the inside to discharge any residual static electricity and be very careful with internal components. Please be sure you are comfortable enough with these components especially memory modules because damage to the motherboard and/or the modules retaining slot/clips can occur very easily.

    Shwheewww!!! OK, I see what your talking about. I have been all over the net and found very very little in the way of documentaion or support for this machine. I therefore went to my used motherboard stock where I found an intel "L" series motherboard OEM (I was able to verify the "L" in your model number indicates it's motherboard type and that it is in fact an intel OEM). However, mine is out of a DELL. It is a small form factor though, core 2 duo DDR2 board such as is yours so I will try and give you an idea based on my board I'm looking at and experience with very small form factor HP cases I've worked on. On my "L" series board the memory modules are to the right of the processor & northbridge (the large chip just below your processors massive heatsik). Usually with a case like this when you pull the left side cover off you can't see anything but a massive heatsink and bunched up ribbons & wires if your looking in from the left side.and your memory modules due to the motherboards architecture are blocked by the CD or DVD ROM/S, memory card reader (in the old days a floppy), & the hard drive cradle. On HP cases though the manufacturers thought of this and incorporated a motherboard tray that "folds out" to the right (or left if your facing the rear) by removing the expansion cards, 2 to 3 screws on the rear near the expansion card slots and one or two behind the right side panel. Therefore based on what I could gather during my nearly futile research and the "L" series intel board I have here I recommend you try and determine if the right side panel of your case can be removed and if so thoroughly check the back of your case and try and determine if your ACER'S motherboard tray "folds out" such as is the case with some small HP's. If not you will carefully have to remove enough ribbon cables and maybe your CD/DVD ROM drives, memory card reader, HD, etc., so that you can reasonably and safely add your memory modules. Good luck, I'd appreciate it if you'd let me know how this works out.

Go to www.newegg.com and whatever you want to upgrade click on that item and match it up with your current board (by looking at the specifications and matching them). I suggest to buy a new mobo and all new processors and ram. You can use your old case, hard drive and all that good stuff that is removable.

Incorrect RAM reported on BIOS


4GB RAM requires a 64 bit compatible processor AND Operating System to be able to access
addresses in memory that exceed the 32 bit assress space.

I'm not familiar with the motherboard that you are using but simply expanding RAM isn't enough if your
system isn't 64 bit compliant. Assuming it is, then ensure that you are using a 64 bit version of Windows 7 opposed to a 32 bit release candidate.
