Adding Memory To My Laptop

I own an Acer Aspire 3002LCi, Mobile AMD Sempron Processor c2800+, 40GB, 256MB DDR. I'm not sure if that helps at all but there it is anyway. I am interested in speeding up my laptop but would like to know what kind of memory to use. I was told each computer takes a different type of memory. I would also like to increase the GB ... If that's even possible and not too expencive. Thanks Erin

Ok I have the same exact model you do and I have also upgraded my memory, Use a pc2700~DDR 333~SO-DIMM RAM. I upgraded with a simple 512mb chip and it worked wonders, The motherboard can handle up to 2gbs but trust me its not neccesary. also the memory will go in at a 45 degree angle then once it is snug in you will push it down flat till it clicks, feels wierd doing it I know but thats how they are. Also the hard drive is very easy to change, but I would recommend you going with a "western digital 'passport' external usb HDD" I went with the 120 gig and its awesome. The backup software on the harddrive it came with is very worth keeping. Also not sure if you knew this already but that laptop has a 'SiSm760GX' Motherboard and it is supporting the AM2 processor class :) . read up on it here, http://www.sis.com/pressroom/pressrelease_000212.htm anyways hope that helped you and good luck. :)

It is a little expensive for adding memory to a labtop cause all the work into it to take it all apart. But it doenst cost alot for memory. Also Puting a new harddrive in a laptop is real hard sometimes. The best memory to use in a laptop of your kind is at least 2GB of memory and it would cost you 68.00 bucks or more. The harddrives are for 149.00 bucks if you have CompUSA or any other store they have good named brands like memory and harddrives for your laptop. Hope I helped you out.

SOURCE: Installing Acer 5315 series memory

Laptops use a different type of RAM unlike a tower computer, the RAM is like little square pieces. Unscrew the cover, lift the old RAM out and replace with the new. Its located on the back or underside of the computer.

I want to upgrade my processor and memory on my acer travelmate 4000. I currently have an Intel Pentium M 1.5GHz 496RAM processor. I have 2 memory slots each containing 256MB type DDR PC2700, DDR...

I suggest adding 2X 1GB DDR PC2700 memory sticks. Crucial also recommends it, but as long as it's only 1gb thats DDR PC2700 per stick it's compatible, so you can shop around if you like and choose the cheapest.

Hope this helps!

I've AMD sempron 2400 1.66 ghz processor with 256mb RAM, can in upgrade it to 1GB Ram?

yes without any doubt the ram you should need is DDR 1 or DDR 333mhz or 400mhz either one should do and probably can be found very cheap on ebay. if you really only want 1gb probably best to have 2x512mb sticks as some motherboards didnt like the 1GB modules and needed to be flashed. but if your mainboard is pretty good you will probably find that it can take 2gb

I need mobile amd sempron 3600 and driver for my acer aspire 4220, anybody can help? tnx!

According to the AMD Processors Forum, (Forums.amd.com) the driver for the Processor and its inbuilt co-processor is - the nvidia chip set driver
This you can get from -
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads_gd.html
Click on Notebook in the list of types then Aspire then Aspire 4220
Underneath the 4 'boxes' is a list of the drivers for the Aspire 4220 - the TOP one is the one you want. (You may already have it on a disk with your laptop, but didn't realise what it was...)
If not, there is a 'yellow' button next to the word chipset - click on this, and it should start downloading right away.
It is a Zip file, when downloaded - it needs to be Unzipped to get at the goodies inside. The file inside shoud be an 'exe' file, double clicking it should install the required drivers.
Cheers

I have an older Acer Aspire 3000... it recently became to cluttered and when I tried to reformat loading windows 7 ultimate, it stopped saying it couldn't find everything it needed. I'm fairly certain its...

Not all systems are supported by Windows 7. Infact many items that were supported by vista are not supported in windows 7.

looking at your system specs you woudl originally have AMD Mobile Sempron 3000+ / 1.8 GHz , 256mb ram and windows xp home as your original.

this system does not meet the minimum requirements to run Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 at all.

minimum specs for windows 7 are

  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

  • i do not recommend a 1ghz system. i would recommend a 2ghz or better with 2GB of memory for a basic version
