Some times the factory fitted memory is under the keyboard or somewhere similarly inaccessible to the average user. If the memory slot you have found is empty just use that one for your upgrade.
Make sure you but compatible memory by using the memory cofigurator at crucial.com

Try using the system scanner to confirm what is in your machine.

Hewlett Packard EliteBook 2530p Memory Upgrade


The 666 in the part number indicates a 666 MHz memory stick. In the spec of the HP 2530 P, it needs DDR2 800 Mhz memory. Possible that the memory is not compatible.

I have an acer aspire M5100 and when you turn on the comp, the fan works, and it seems like the computer is trying to boot up, however there is a beeping that lasts for 2ish seconds, followed by a 5 second...


it sounds like the ram is not being detected.
what you can do is power the unit down and remove your ram module,
**static is a big issue so make sure you are not on carpets or in static clothing and always remember to be touching the compurer case when ever you venture inside to discharge any stray static **** in you**
the best way to clean the memory module is with a pen eraser, what you clean is the little copper pins at the base of the module
if you need a visual guide please email ne

hope this helps

I want to upgrade the graphics card on my acer aspire m3400 but can not locate the card on the motherboard


That's because the video is integrated into the motherboard. This PC supports HDMI... what exactly are you trying to 'upgrade'? If the on-board video is not performing as you want, from what you can see here, you may only need to upgrade RAM on your MB:

http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/2010/acer/Aspire/AspireM3400/AspireM3400sp2.shtml

#4 at the bottom of the page:
Shared system memory may be allocated to support integrated graphics, depending on system memory size and other factors. Actual system memory available to the operating system will be reduced by the amount of dedicated and shared system memory utilized by the graphics solution and resources required by the operating environment.

How to add 1GB memory


First you need to find out what Memory ( Ram ) it requires as there is DDR DDR2 SODIMM but seeing as it is a newish computer it could be a DDR2. Way to find out is looking up on the internet. Unplug everything from the computer , then look on the back. With the computer front facing you remove the 2 screws on the left side and then pull the side panel back and away from the tower. Look inside and you will see a silver box with a fan on it ( thats the Chip fan ) and next to it you should see some Sticks that are green and have black squares on them, what you do is note what slot is free and make sure you grab the new stick on each corner and push it down onto the free slot ( as long as the 2 tabs either side of the socket are pulled away, then it will jsut clip into place with a little pressure.

Thats a Ram change, but make sure you know what type it is.

Hi! How can I increase the RAM on my Aspire T310? Can I do it myself? Thanks.


Yes, you can definitely do this yourself. Upgrading RAM is one thing that repair places make much money; however, it takes a matter of seconds to complete.

Your Acer Aspire T310 has two memory slots on the motherboard. Each slot can hold a maximum of 1GB each for a total of 2GB RAM. You should see a great improvement in performance.

To save on a long tutorial, I have included a video link. The type of RAM you need can be found at the following link. Kingston is another manufacturer you could check into also.

Please remember to unplug all cords from your computer and be in a static free environment before upgrading your memory. Good Luck!

How do i upgrade the ram on sony vaio pcv-v1/g, please


Very easily! With the unit on it's stand, tip the screen forward as far as it goes (About 15deg past vertical). This uncovers 2 Philips cross-head screws, one on each end of the black box that hangs off the back of the screen and contains the memory,processor, fan etc. Now the top of the black box can be lifted off. Inside is an aluminum box with the lid taped (!) on. Remove lid, and inside are 2 memory slots. One will have a 500mb mem card in it. The other is empty. Fit you new 500mb in the empty slot for 1gb total (the max). Don't forget to use some form of anti static protection and of course unplug it from mains electricity before you start!

Can't Find 2nd ram to upgrade memory


Sometimes Laptops will have 1 slot internal and 1 slot on the bottom side thats readily accessible via a removable plate.

You'll be perfectly find with the 1GB internal and adding the 2GB to replace the 1GB stick on the bottom side.
Also Windows XP and VISTA 32bit can only address and use about 3.25GB of ram anyway.

Recently Microsoft released a patch that's kind of tricking consumers, People calling and complaining so much to MS and PC manufacturers about not seeing all their ram when they installed 4GB so they Released a fix that shows it as 4GB but still the 32bit OS cant use the extra over 3GB

Memory upgrade


There are 2 memory slots in Acer L320. You can use program called cpuz to check how many memory modules are you using, and what size are they.
If you have any module free you should be capable to upgrade memory.
