    have tried all of the above combinations...(every dimm works on it's own in slot 1) ....slot 2 damaged ? if you insert a dimm into slot 2 on its own an audible alarm sounds so it appears that slot 2 is addresed by the bios when it is booted.

512MB (FT64MSD64V3F)
200 Pin Dimm - SDRAM - 2.5V - DDR - PC2700 (PC-333) - Non-ECC

is the correct type of RAM for your laptop.
Have you tried booting with all combinations.

512 in slot 1 --- Boots
move same dimm to slot 2 (on it's own) and try booting.
boot with 256mb in slot 1 and known to be good 512 in number 2

This laptop should allow up to 2GB RAM. So I don't belive it is an issue with the mother board not seeing the amout of RAM. I think it could either be flaky dimm or your slot 2 is damaged

    The audible alarm is possibly the Bios saying "no Ram detected"
    Try booting with no Ram, if you hear the same alarm, then slot 2 is damaged

How do I fix Acer Travel-Mate 5744, The laptop cannot boot. There is a brief Brand Name Acer and then it goes back off.


Heating the motherboard enough to repair a dry joint is rather folly. It will do more harm than good unless you heat both sides simultaneously at controlled temperatures..

Remove hdd and RAM. See what happens when you try to boot. You should get a DOS screen. If not, replace the motherboard.

Upgraded ram 1gb wont boot hp 510 mobo 30C4


If you added another 512Mb RAM to increase the RAM to 1Gb then the new 512Mb memory stick could be incompatible with the original 512Mb or it could be faulty.
Use RAM that is same make and speed as the original RAM.
Remove both RAM and just insert the new 512Mb into your laptop and see if the laptop boots up, if not then the RAM could be faulty.

What type of RAM is your Pc using? SDR, DDR1 or DDR2? 1 GB single module of RAM maight be heavier for your notepad and the Laptop maight even fail to boot. Just use the 2 Modules of Ram (2 chips each 512MB) and check in BIOS if the RAM capacity has acually changed.

Trying to add ram


Take them both out and reboot, you should get a beeping sound which is basically telling you it has no ram.

Then put 1 stick back in, and reboot. If it doesn't boot, take it back out and replace it with the other stick. If it still doesn't boot, try an original stick of ram if you still have them.

you could either have faulty ram or ram that is not compatible with your travelmate.

Acer Aspire Memory problem


check hardware compatability,vista is touchy,get xp

Sep 23, 2009 | Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook

1 Answer

I added more memory to my vista


Has the BIOS detected the additional memory or it has stayed the same?
Is the new RAM the same make as the other RAM module and speed?

To determine if the new RAM is OK, remove both RAM modules and insert only the new RAM module and see if the laptop boots up.
If it doesn't boot up then the RAM module is either faulty or incompatible with your laptop.
If it boots up then insert the other RAM module in the second memory slot. Check the BIOS to see if the RAM has increased. If not then the RAM modules are incompatible with each other. I suggest you look at the make of the original RAM module and purchase the second one from the same manufacturer.

My acer travelmate wont boot just beeps 4 times i recently reinstalled XP Pro os on acer ferrari 4000 and have recieved this same problem 4 beeps and black screen.won't boot..bios or os. HELP


I long + 3 short beeps or 3 short + 1 long beeps indicates memory problem.
The RAM module/s may need reseating to re-establish proper electrical contact.
If it still doesn't boot up then :-
Get the RAM module/s may be faulty, test the module/s in another laptop or get your friendly computer shop to test them.

Acer 2300 Travelmate wont start up


my guess is that your ram got loosed a little bit. that is why some of your system files are not loading correctly. Try re-inserting you ram or memory. just always remember that computer parts are very fragile so do not force to dislodge anything.
