Yes... just need to purchase the right stuff.

You need to determine if you have DDR or DDRII. And then determine if you have one stick of 512, or if you have 2 sticks of 256. Once you know this information, visit your local Best Buy or purchase somewhere online, a memory upgrade. Such as 2 sticks at 512mb for 1 gig total. Assuming you have two memory slots, should have anyway.

DDRII is fairly cheap right now, be a good time to upgrade. DDR on the other hand, is still a little more expensive.

    Oh, and if you can afford it... go for two sticks of 1gb... for a 2gb total... ;-)



    That 512 you have is a just a bare minimum these days.

Can I install microsoft office 2007 on acer aspire 3680 ?


As far as compatibility is concerned, YES you can install Office 2007 on your computer. The only factor that would limit you is the amount of RAM you have on the computer but since you have Windows Vista, I would assume that this computer has 1GB or more of system memory.

This is just a secondary concern, though. If you have any lower than 1GB of RAM (possibly due to shared video memory), the application will still run except not as fast as you would like it to.

First, let it cool down. Try booting it without the extra ram chip in it. Make sure your laptop accepts DDR2 553 and make sure that the make of both chips are the same. If they're both different it can cause problems.
