Hi


Well about guaranteed your 2 gigs ram is probably DDR II ram which has maximum of four gigs with 64 bit processing and 2 with 32 bit is. So motherboard needs upgrade. 35.00 for good giabit or board with 1000 megs a sec ethernet lan. With ddrIII ram. And upgrade operating system I believe win 8 has max 16 gig ram win 7 uses 8 gis vista and longhorn 64 use 4 and xp normal edition 32 bit uses 2 max. So you about have to run win 7 or 8. Win 7 will become direct x incomparable at some point making us change to win 8. Win8 cost like 300 to 350 and tiger direct.com has good deal of the win 7 pro media center for 75 bucks. So spend 150 on good speed 8 gig ram, 125 bucks for 12 core and at 4 GHz I think. And a board for 35. Reuse all other componets. And you\'ll have a 2500 dollar computer and best on the block.

Windows 7 running slow after memory upgrade


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

New Acer Aspire one with one gig of ram seems slow. Will adding another 1 gig of memory make it faster? Will I be able to see the difference? Is this a difficult task to do?


Adding RAM, especially if your running Vista, will usually cure a lot of the problems related to speed. You shoul dbe able to see quite a difference in boot time and when loading programs in either XP or Vista.

Adding RAM is usually a very easy process. Certain care must be taken of course not to build up any static electricity of course. But after looking at the specs for the Acer Aspire, unless you are comfortable with taking laptops apart, I would take it to your local computer repair place and ask them to install it for you. THe slot is located underneath the motherboard and requires quit a bit of finesse to get to. Also, from the look sof it, you'll only be able to upgrade to 1.5 GB total of ram. So now it's a matter of considering if it's worth the trouble for an additional 512MB of ram. There will be a light improvement, but you'll have to wiegh that against the cost of the ram and installation.

Slow pc


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.

Upgrade for acer aspire 4315


Hi, best and fastest way to increase your laptop speed is upgrading RAM to 4 Gigs, using 2x2Gb RAM modules like this one (UK seller).
Adding a bigger hard drive won't increase laptop speed, but will give you more space to store your files.
Another way to speed up a computer is using CPU overclocking, but this operation, good on old computers, is not worth on a computer with new CPU like yours.
On you tube also some user posted videos on how to upgrade chips on motherboard of old Acer aspire, but I suggest not trying this, as risk to destroy laptop is very high, and it is generally not worth.
Better to stick with traditional upgrades.

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.

Upgrading acer laptop RAM


Hi,
You Can Actually Upgrade This To 2 Gig Memory.
Each Slot Will Take 1 A Gig Strip.
I,d suggest Buying another 256 mb Strip, To Put Into Slot 2.
Or Buy a 512mb ( Half Gig ) Which Will Give you 750mb With your Existing Strip Already In There. ** Recommend 1 Gigabyte Max** 2 gig of Ram in This Baby Would Probably Start Glowing.
You Can Buy DDR/266/333 In 256/512/1 Gig Strips. These Are Commonly Known As SD-RAM-Modules.
