I have an ACER ASPIRE 5720 laptop - it is less than a year old and it is showing the memory is full - the memory is meant to be 32 GB and from what I can see from the programme menus there is less than 4 GB on it but I keep getting the error message that the memory is full and I am unable to download any further info onto it.

Hi j0shuatsb,
Acer like many other manufactures seem to design their system to fail or have issues just after their 1 year warranty is up. Like other Microsoft windows operating systems, when you receive an error message that you're memory is full. This does not mean you have run out of RAM = memory. You're notebook can only run a max of 4GB of memory. The error message refers to hard disk drive space. Depending on you're operating system, windows will lock out so much drive space so it can move about. All notebooks also have a hidden partition which holds drivers & programs used in combination for running the system restore.
This hidden partition can range in size from 2GB up to 4GB.
This also lessens you're total hard disk drive space. Bottom line is there is nothing wrong with your memory.
What you need is a larger hard disk drive. Notice the Technical specifications from this link:
http://www.acer.co.uk/public/page9.do?sp=page4&dau34.oid=24360&UserCtxParam=0&GroupCtxParam=0&dctx1=17&CountryISOCtxParam=UK&LanguageISOCtxParam=en&ctx3=-1&ctx4=United+Kingdom&crc=512458878
It does not show what size you're SATA hard disk drive is.
Since you are still in warranty, now would be the time to increase you're drive size. On another note, if you're HDD is the standard 160GB than there is an issue with your current HDD.
Please run a full system virus scan.
Suggest you back up all you're personal data on to a DVD & run you're system restore CD including a format to help you regain you're HDD full space. A temporary fix would be to uninstall any non needed programs through Add/Remove programs. This should free up some space. Many Acer programs you do not use at all or need should be the first to go.

Why wont my acer aspire z5700 pc play call of duty it loads up but its plays very slow


The simple answer is because you are playing a rather modern game on a computer that is not provisioned for playing modern high-end games.It looks like this model of computer includes an integrated Intel graphics chip with only 128 MB at the most. Intel integrated graphics chips are notorious for not being very good with games (unless the game si 5 years old or more). To play modern games, you need a computer with a discrete graphics adapter, and bare minimum 5000 MB to 1 or more GB of memory on the graphics card. Higher end systems might have several GB of on-card memory (it's been a while since I have checked).

Computer wont start acer aspire L-100


CPU overheated? When you cool it down it will start. You can check whether there are lots of dust on the CPU fan and the chase of the machine, they might block the air flow and overheat the CPU.

Acer Aspire E380 memory


Hi pimp69,
You can only use components compatible with Aspire series computers. Before you choose new components, please ask your authorized Acer dealer whether the part will operate within your Aspire series system. This is noted in your manual pg. 6.
Compatible memory for your Acer. Don't forget your Acer uses an intergrated graphics card that uses your system memory to function.

Good Luck & Kind Regards.
