If it's Windows 7 32bit it has limits on the amount of ram it can use.
Google it and see.

I have an ET1161-05- can it be upgraded to hold more memory and run faster?


Hi.
Yes, your computer came with 2 gig's of ram in the form of 2 1gig modules of ddr2 ram.

There are 4 slots for memory all together, and each slot can hold 2 gig memory chips in each one, for a total of 8 gig's of ram!

That would cause a serious performance improvement for you.

It also came with a 160 gb hard drive, so if you want to, you can get as larger drive as well.

As far as processors, a dual core, AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ Brisbane 2.9GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 65W processor will fit in with absolutely no bios updates required, so all you would have to do is take the old processor out, put the new one in, and turn the computer on.
It will recognize the new processor automatically, and will work right away!

This will have a significant performance boost, possibly doubling the total speed of your computer.

I hope this helps you out, and have a good day !

Some motherboards are only upgradable to their allotted amount that board may only handle up to 2 gigs of RAM which is a shame. But this is the way it is. That is why I always check the board memory capacity before I buy computer boards or RAM for them. The beeps indicate error on the slots for the RAM that is why you can start up when you remove ram one at a time and replace. So use the allotted amount of RAM for that board specification or get another mother board that can handle more than 2 gigs of RAM. Sorry for the loss. Thanks for using FixYa! John

I want to upgrade my PC to 4GB of RAM. Does the Acer Aspire X1301 REQUIRE you to use 2 2GB RAMs, or can I use 1 4GB?


you shouldnt have any problem upgrading with the 4 gig module. just make sure that you know whether it is ddr or ddr2 before you go and buy it. just to make sure you may want to take it with you when you make your purchase. Hope that helps!

Hello juliet_34x,

Whats also important to perform when you up your memory to 2 gig is to adjust your Paging File as well. At 2 gig of primary memory, you will need to adjust the Paging File to 3000 (2 GB X 1.5) and Maximum size to 4092. In addition, if your computer was performing slow before the memory upgrade, you should perform disk cleanup and defrag (this will help alot).

Hope this helps and good luck.

Ram


No, usually, your PC if you have an integrated video card, will take away from your installed ram for 256mb of video dedication. Everything should be fine.

I think you are out of luck with this. You can try upgrading the RAM, but I believe you will still be disappointed. Vista requires a huge amount of hardware resources and many drivers are not available yet.

Install Windows XP or try one of the Linux distributions. I prefer Fedora Core myself, but for many, Ubuntu is an excellent choice.
