Do I need to download new bios for my acer wg43m motherboard in order to be able to install more ram?


A 32-bit operating system is limited to around 3.5 GB's of Ram Memory. You will have the ram memory installed, but it will only recognize 3.5GB.

A 64-bit operating system will recognize up to 128GB's of ram memory.

Windows XP Home is a 32-bit operating system.
Windows XP Pro had a 32-bit version available, and a 64-bit version available.

This also goes for the various Vista operating systems, and Windows 7 operating systems.

LOOK, and see.

1) If it is Windows XP Pro;

Left-click on Start, then right-click on My Computer.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.

What does it state? If 64-bit is not shown, it is a 32-bit operating system.

2) If it is a version of Vista, or Windows 7;

Left-click on the Windows logo button. Right-click on Computer.
Left-click on Properties.

Again, if it is a 64-bit operating system, you can bet Windows will state it.

My acer aspire X3950 takes a while to shut down


Sounds like it's probably due to a lot of processes running or not much memory in the computer. You can go through your startup entries and look for things that don't need to run or you can add more RAM. Crucial.com will tell you which kind of RAM your computer needs.
To view startup processes Vista/7 click the start menu and type in msconfig, hit enter, click the Startup tab. Windows Defender, which is built in, will also help you with that.

This is because your computer is sharing the physical memory with the graphics memory so it will actually subtract the amount of the shared memory from the physical memory in the computer giving you the 780 that you see because the computer reserves a portion of that to use for your graphics.

More ram and vdeo card


it sounds as if your MoBo is seeing the video adapter as a source of ram. if that is the case, then installing memory in units of 1Gb will cause a stick to not be seen, therefore utilized. you may want to refer to you manual for memory limits and poosible comparibility issues. they are usually quite in depth. also, make sure that they are all the same make model and speed. these issues have wreaked havoc on the prettiest of pc's.

Trouble with my new acer aspire desktop computer


Slow boot problems on any computers are due to 2 reasons :
(1) Hardware reasons and
(2)Software reasons

(TRY THE SOLUTION MENTIONED FOR SOFTWARE FIRST, IF THAT DOES NOT HELP, ONLY THEN TRY THE HARDWARE SOLUTION)

HARDWARE REASONS> if your system has less RAM (memory) then it can cause slow boot up issues,
SOLUTION FOR HARDWARE > I recommend you to check the amount of memory on your system., to check the memory on your system , click on start , then "right click" on "my computer " icon and select properties.. on the screen you will the the amount of RAM installed. I recommend 1 GB of RAM on a computer.

SOFTWARE REASONS> These can be a problem with the windows XP operating system.
SOLUTION FOR SOFTWARE> perform the steps as mentioned in the following links :

yes, that's why with new computers, it comes with high ram.

In any case, try to clean out your C: do a disk clean up.
remove useless software. Don't archive for faster search (slow computer down)

I have built a computer useing a foxconn mother board No 945g7ma-8ks2h. My Windows Vista Home Premium (bought boxed and new from comets store) will only part load the freeze, Will this board support this...


You might not have enough RAM, (Random Access Memory) RAM is memory that the computer temporarily stores for future commands, and I know Vista takes about 1-2 GB of RAM to run, if it can't handle it, I'd suggest using windows XP.
