Question about Acer Computers & Internet
Before buying more ram, try cleaning the contacts of your original ram sticks.
The best way to do this is to use a pencil eraser until the copper contacts on the sticks are clean.
Make sure you wipe off the eraser filings and deposits with a clean cloth before re-installing the memory. Make sure you don't have any lint etc on the contacts after wiping them.
Never touch the contacts with your fingers.
Inspect your ram slots and check that there is no dust or anything else that shouldn't be there.
A blow of some compressed air in a tin normally is enough to get them clean if needed.
Install your ram, and I'm certain this will fix your problems, as it is very seldom I find ram actually faulty.
To make sure your ram is without any error, you can always run a test program called Memtest+86, download here:
