    I thank you. I did everything step by step and thought everything was fine. But after I closed the pc it work ok then kept shuting down to re boot said it had to fix something. I was suppose to put the new stick of ram next to the one that was already there. Did I need to tell the computer i had add more ram?

It shouldnt be that difficult if your refering to extra Ram. Its just a stick, usually green with gold connectors on the bottom. If you remove the outer case or side of the pc (shutting it down and unplugging it first ofcourse) You can look in and should be able to see the original ram stick in the motherboard. Usually there are plastic clips on either end of the ram slot, push them all the way out, this opens the slot up, put the stick in with the metal parts down obviously, even apply pressure to both sides until the clips pop up locking the stick in place.

HOW dO I aDD memory?


It really depends on what you have now. Go to crucial's site http://uk.crucial.com/gbr/en/ and use the scan computer tool and it will tell you how, if you can and the parts if possible.
Frankly this is the safest and surest way of doing this.

Blue screen error acer desk top


hi friend the blue screen comes when there is a 1:hardware problem
2:virus problem
3:Installation Disk is corrupted
4:RAM problem

First, check your CD and clean or replace it as necessary. Your next step should be to test your system memory for errors with a diagnostic program.
To do this obtain the Windows Memory Diagnostic or Memtest memory diagnostic programs on floppy or CD we mentioned earlier, and use it to boot your system and test the memory. If either of these programs shows any errors in your memory, you have likely found the source of your troubles.
Chances are you will need to purchase new memory. For more information on faulty memory and memory diagnostics, see PCstats Guide to diagnosing bad memory .

How to reach the inner memory slot in an acer pc


If the drive-assembly is in the way, remove the drive(s), insert the RAM, and replace the drive(s).

You may be able to loosen the side-screws (on both sides) and slide the drive "forward" (towards the front face-plate) to give you enough "clearance" to insert the RAM.

Power supply fo acer Aspire SA 60 desk top


Hi,

To my knowledge, there is no limit to the maximum wattage that can be installed in your PC. The only limitations would be:
  • the physical dimension and mounting holes;
  • the connectors and wire/pin arrangements;
  • it should not be lower than what you currently have.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Transfering my outlook and emails folders from my old desk to my new acer desk top


No because outlook is an installed program in your older computer so you can't transfer install programs from one hard drive to the next.

Sorry
