Re: Bringing new life to Accient Acer Laptop (AAL) Extensa-367D

Win. 98 SE, 200mgz, 80mb Ram (16mb onboard + one 64mb EDO dimm memory module). Want to add one 128mb EDO dimm memory module. They exist for my AAL. Tried to add USB 2.with PCMCIA controller card with hubs...it got real ugly for a minute....Slots don't do controller cards. AAL came with one USB 1.1 hub working 5by5, Websites tell me I can add 128mb memory module. New 128mb memoy module has correct configuration-EDO, dimm, correct # of pin. I am concerned about Bios settings. Bios will accept flash changes, but do not know where to obtain said. Any thoughts? Thx, Harvey J. Warnick [email protected]

How to install memory stixs


In an Acer Extenza 5420 series of Notebook PC?

Well you came to the right place

Here have a seat, and let me show you;

1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) Here is a Bottom view of your laptop,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Acer-Extensa-5420-Case-Bottom-15-4-Black-Cover-Speakers-Original-Genuine-Laptop-/170983023419?pt=US_Computer_Cases&hash=item27cf61e33b

Bottom left corner shows the Battery has been removed.
Remove the large panel above it,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Acer-Extensa-5420-5520-Hard-Drive-RAM-Memory-Bottom-Cover-Door-60-4T305-002-/190741766831?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c691862af

Looks to be 6 Philips head screws to remove.
The panel lifts up on the LEFT side. There are TABS extruded from this large panel, which go into the Base Enclosure, (Bottom Cover), on the Right side.

From the Specifications on Acer's Support website,

http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/notebook/0000/Acer/Extensa5420/Extensa5420sp2.shtml

,it states;

System Memory: -> Up to 2GB of DDR2 667MHz memory; upgradeable to 4GB using two SO-DIMM ram memory modules.
(Dual-channel support)

From what I can see, looking at the motherboard by itself; there are TWO ram memory slots,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Acer-Extensa-5120-5420-7120-7420-TravelMate-5220-AMD-Motherboard-MB-TKP01-002-/350455821339?pt=Motherboards&hash=item5198cb741b

Towards the Top you see the White processor socket. Upper corners are cut off, and there is a single screw in the top/middle.
Right above it are two white Ram Memory slots.

EACH ram memory slot will support (Use) 2GB of DDR2 at 667MHz.

2GB = Amount
DDR2 stands for DDR2 Sdram, and is it SO-DIMM to fit in a laptop.
667MHz stands for 667MegaHertz.
The frequency rate ('Speed') that the Ram Memory operates at.

The TOTAL amount of ram memory for the laptop is 4GB.
That means you can use two modules, ('Sticks') of DDR2 Sdram at 667MHz.
Or also stated as PC2-5300.

Just make SURE it is SO-DIMM, or you will be getting the larger DIMM ram memory used in a desktop computer.
An example of SO-DIMM,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:1GB_DDR2_SO-DIMM.png

Note the Side Notch on Each side.
The half-moon cutout.
Note the Locating Notch on the Bottom.

Also;
Everywhere on the Ram Memory module, EXCEPT the gold plated contact pins at the Bottom; is the BODY.

The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.
Handle the Ram Memory module by the Body.
Refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins.

[WORK on a table. {Or workbench} DO NOT work on a bed, couch, or directly on a carpet floor! High areas of Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out, (Short Circuit) computer hardware components]

If you have two Ram Memory modules, one will be stacked on top of the other one. You remove the top one first, then access the bottom one.

To remove a ram memory module, simply ease the spring clips on either side -> OUT.
Out away from the Ram Memory module.
This action takes the 'Bumps' on the Spring Clips, out of the Side Notches on the Ram Memory module.

DO NOT get carried away. Just ease one spring clip out, then ease the other one out. You can bend the spring clips if you are too rough.
When both spring clip 'bumps' are out of the way, the Ram Memory module will spring up slightly.

Remove AT THAT ANGLE.

Slide the Ram Memory module out, at the same slight angle, (30 degrees?), that it just popped up to.

IF you lift the Ram Memory module straight up, you WILL damage the gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the Ram Memory module; and the contact pins in the Ram Memory slot.

To install a Ram Memory module, look at the location of the Locating Notch on the Bottom.
This aligns with a Locating Lug, in the bottom of the ram memory slot.
ONLY goes in one way.

Locating Notch aligned with Locating Lug, slide the Ram Memory module in, in the SAME slight angle it came out at.
Make sure the gold plated contact pins of the Ram Memory module, are well seated in the ram memory slot.

(Ram Memory module is pushed in tightly, in the Ram Memory slot)
Then press down on the tilted up side, until the spring clips lock in place.

Here is a video demonstrating the above, but NOT your laptop,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MbPaR1Ci-Ug

IF, you are ONLY installing ONE Ram Memory module, it MUST go in Slot 1. Also known as DIMM 1.

The Processor (CPU) reads what is in Slot 1 -> F-I-R-S-T.

Know this;
If you are using the regular Windows XP Home, or Pro; it is the 32-bit version.
If it is the Windows XP Pro 64-bit version, it will state so.
Either on the body of the laptop, or go to System Properties.

[Left-click on Start > then Right-click on My Computer.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the drop down list ]

Windows Vista 64-bit will state so also.

Point?
IF you have a 32-bit Operating System, your laptop will ONLY recognize about 3.2 to 3.5GB of ram memory; if you have 4GB installed.

Takes a 64-bit Operating System to recognize all 4GB.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

RAM upgrade


(1) flip the Notebook/Laptop PC over - see Fig.1 below
(2) find the memory cover - it really easy to find in this photo.

12_5_2011_7_39_30_am.jpg

Fig.1 Toshiba M35X bottom view - the memory cover is seen at center left and secured by a single screw.

(3) remove the (1) screw securing the memory cover.

12_5_2011_7_42_34_am.jpg

Fig. 2 Toshiba M35X laptop shown with memory cover removed and HDD (Hard Disk Drive) removed, and with the HDD cover flipped up.
The RAM (SO-DIMM boards) are visible at center left.
The HDD cover is seen at the bottom of the photo.

(4) Using proper anti-static/static control techniques, clip alligator clip or your anti-static wrist strap to a frame ground of the laptop at an I/O connector or frame ground under the HDD cover.
(5) carefully remove (2) old 256 MB SO-DIMM DDR333 memory modules.
Store old memory boards in the anti-static plastic baggie in which the new memory boards were shipped.
(6) install (2) new 1GB SO-DIMM DDR333 boards, for total of 2GB of system RAM.
(7) reassemble system, and boot OS (operating system).
The laptop's ROM BIOS will auto-detect the new RAM and begin a standard POST (Power-On Self Test).
(8) If OS is MSWindows, it will also auto-detect the new memory, and allocate it to application software.

The technology of the Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 memory module is called
DDR333, meaning DDR (Double Data Rate) SDRAM (Synchronous Dynamic RAM), at a memory bus speed of 333 MHz.
The Form Factor of the DDR memory card is SO-DIMM, which stands for Small Outline DIMM (Dual In-line Memory Module) (see photo).
Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR_SDRAM
Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SO-DIMM

12_5_2011_8_13_41_am.jpg

Fig.3 Each 1GB SO-DIMM DDR333 memory module will look like this one.
The Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 supports a maximum of two SO-DIMM memory modules.

Each memory module can hold (a) 256MB, (b) 512MB, or (c) 1GB,
in the SO-DIMM Form Factor compatible with the Toshiba M35X-S349 Notebook PC.

Problem prompt on DIMM error


Hi,
If the printer freezes or crashes at memory count or if the printer shows error Mem test failure replace DIMM or if the printer display is completely blank in that case obviuosly you can try reseating Mmeory Module.
However that doesn't fix the problem formatter board is faulty.
Need to get Formatter replaced.

The only new hardware that you can install on that laptop is ram, and with a maximum of 80mb EDO you might be better off loading up a version of Linux that does not require a lot of memory. XP would be like molassas in January in Alaska. Vista would just not even get past the opening install screen.

How we can share RAM memory with graphics memory of our PC?


all you have to do is go into the bios, do this by pressing F2 on boot up, when in the bios you need to look for "shared memory" or "graphics memory"
once you have chosen the shared memory you want save settings and exit by pressing F10, the pc will restart and the shared memory will be increased

I have a P3 at 500MHz and was wondering with this Motherboard,


The motherboard has three, dual in-line memory module (DIMM) sockets. Minimum memory size is 16 MB; maximum memory size is 768 MB. The largest DIMM supported at this time is 256 MB using unbuffered 128 Mbit technology parts. The BIOS automatically detects memory type, size, and speed.

The motherboard supports the following memory features:
  • 168-pin DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
  • 66 or 100 MHz SDRAM
  • Non-ECC (64-bit) and ECC (72-bit) memory
  • 3.3 V memory only
  • Unbuffered Single- or double-sided DIMMs in the following sizes:


DIMM Size Non-ECC Configuration ECC Configuration 16 MB 2M x 64 2M x 72 32 MB 4M x 64 4M x 72 64 MB 8M x 64 8M x 72 128 MB 16M x 64 16M x 72 256MB 32M x 64 32M x 72

Synchronous DRAM (SDRAM) can be installed in one, two, or three sockets. EDO DIMMs are not supported. Memory size and speed can vary between sockets.

Note: Intel® Pentium® II processors with 100 MHz front-side bus should be paired only with 100 MHz SDRAM. Processors with 66 MHz front-side bus can be paired with either 66 MHz or 100 MHz SDRAM.

All memory components and DIMMs used with the Intel® SE440BX-2 motherboard should comply with the PC SDRAM specifications. These include: the PC SDRAM Specification (memory component specific), the PC Unbuffered DIMM Specification, and the PC Serial Presence Detect Specification.

Note: It is recommended that SPD memory DIMMs be used with the SE440BX-2 motherboard. However, the BIOS will allow the use of non-SPD DIMM memory.

So the max you can go is 3 x 256 MB.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate fixya.

What Is The Max RAM Limit for a IBM ThinkPad 380XD?


From reviewing the manufacturers manual for that unit, I would have to agree that the maximum possible expansion memory you can install is 96mb. Here is the link to their users guide (pdf).

ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/38xhmm.pdf

quote:

"Memory (Option) 2635-8xx/9xx/Axx/Bxx
Ÿ 8MB and 16MB 70ns EDO DIMM
card
Ÿ 16MB, 32MB, and 64MB EDO
DIMM card (max. 96MB)"

There you have it. Although unless you are able to find that specification of memory for cheap online, I would say it's not really worth it to invest in older ram with such slow bus speeds unless you definitely need it. Hope that helps.
