Acer :: 5315 Memory Upgrade

Jun 22, 2009

I've just completed a CPU upgrade on my 5315 (to a T7300, which took 15 minutes!). I'm now thinking of upgrading the memory from my current 2GB @ 667 MHz (with the new CPU the memory runs at 667 MHz rather than 533 MHz with the old CPU) to 2GB @ 800 MHz.

However, I've read that the performance increase between 667 MHz and 800 MHz is very little, thus, it's not worth spending the money, even if it is only $AUD40.

Can anyone provide any input, benchmarks or experiences?

Acer :: Aspire 5315 X3100 Memory Allocation

Feb 16, 2009

I recently got an Aspire 5315 laptop and have been slowly getting it set up to run XP instead of Vista. However, the one problem I am having at the moment is with the Intel X3100 Graphics Accelerator. I have looked all over the internet and can't seem to find any info on how I can define the memory that is allocated to the card, it's all well and good the card using dynamic memory allocation but it's not allocating enough memory. I want to have a fixed 128MB dedicated to the graphics but I can't see any way of doing this either via the Intel software or the BIOS.

I thought I ought to be able to assign a minimum memory amount via the BIOS but graphics memory is locked on my BIOS setting. Would flashing to a later BIOS fix this?

Acer :: 5315 Upgrade

Apr 8, 2009

I m thinking to upgrade my 5315 acer aspire too but I read a lot in this forum and around and i m still not 100 percent sure...

So clearly : do all the 5315 are upgradable...?

Acer support website is clear enough not to confused version or model... so why some users report bios flash problem on some 5315?

I m quite excited to upgrade but also anxious of course...

My acer is a Acer Aspire 5315-202G12Mi (by the way what does "202G12Mi" means?)

Acer :: 5315 And SATA II Drive And CPU Upgrade

Jun 15, 2009

My setup is as follows:

Acer 5315-201G08Mi
Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 550 @ 2.00GHz (Socket P)
TOSHIBA MK8046GSX
Intel GL960 chipset
IO chip being 82801HBM (ICH8-M).
2G DDR2 533 ram
Vista Home Basic
MB - ICL50

I've noticed that the supplied Toshiba SATA II drive is running in SATA I mode and not SATA II even though the controller chip supports SATA II.

Perhaps the BIOS has disabled SATA II?

In addition, I'm keen to upgrade the CPU to a T7300, I assume if I follow the directions on this site, everything should work fine? Any known problems with this model?

Acer :: Aspire 5315 MXM Graphics Upgrade

Jul 17, 2009

This is my Aspire opened up

This is a close up where you can see that we can paste a MXM socket (230 pin's)

Now, if I paste a MXM soket it would look like this

But...

If I introduce a graphic card into this new port added by "me". Will my software recognice it?

The bios an windows can sopport it?

I know problems about heat (can be solved) but the important thing is the bios recognition and how to disable x3100 default integrated graphics right?

May 18, 2009

I have a Aispire 5315. I would like to upgrade my bios in DOS to 1.33 before I install a T9300 CPU. The size of the 1.33 bios is 148,000 bytes so I can't put it on a floppy and the zip files is also bigger than 1457664 bytes.

I prefer not to upgrade in Windows although I see many using winflash. Where is this file located.

i cant post any links but had seen a few on play.com

2gb pc 5300 200 pin

would it matter that there would be 2 different types of RAM in the laptop.

Acer :: Could I Upgrade To 4GB Memory

Jan 28, 2010

I found out from the release notes for BIOS 3.60 that one of the changes is to "update kernel code for 4GB memory support". Does it mean that if I update my BIOS from v 3.33(dated 9/1/07) to v 3.60 I will be able to increase my current maximum memory of 2GB to 4GB in Acer Aspire5610z.

Acer :: 5810TZ, Win 7 64-bit Memory Upgrade

Apr 7, 2010

I have a 5810TZ that I have upgraded to Win 7 64-bit. I have tried to upgrade to 8GB ram and Windows hangs. CMOS reads it as 8GB, but I cannot get Windows 7 to boot.

I have installed two 10600 DDR3 chips. If I remove one chip, it boots normally. It doesn't matter which slot I use or which chip I use. But when I put both chips in, Win 7 hangs.

Acer :: Aspire One HDD And Memory Upgrade

Oct 15, 2008

Considering an Aspire One right now because it is less expensive than the others. I have a 512MB RAM (DDR2-PC5300) and 80GB 2.5" SATA HDD from my Thinkpad (which I upgraded both). So, I think maybe I could buy the Aspire One the cheapest version (8GB I guess).

So, is it can be done? I know that there is SATA version of the Aspire One but not sure the connector will be there in the SSD version. Try to google it but found only SSD upgrade....

HP EliteBook 8540w :: Identifying Correct Memory Slot For RAM Upgrade To Enable Dual Channel Memory

Jan 12, 2015

I just purchased a used Elitebook 8540w with i7 quad core and four memory slots (I love it!).  It is running 64 bit Windows 7 Professional  It came with one 4gb memory module and I purchased an additional 4gb module to bring total RAM to 8gb.  
 
I have the HP document that shows for two 4gb memory modules, one should be in memory slot 1 and the other in memory slot 3 for correct functioning of dual channel memory.  All set right?
 
Not quite.  In the Elitebook 8540w, the primary memory slots under the keyboard are clearly labeled "1" and "2"  However, the expansion memory slots on the underside of the chassis are also clearly labeled "1" and "2"  Opps!  There is no "3" and there is no "4"  In which of the unfilled three slots do I install the second 4gb module for correct functioning of dual channel memory?

Acer :: Travelmate 2200, Memory Upgrade

Apr 7, 2009

Have just rebuilt an Acer Travelmate 2200,loaded XP Professional on it, but when I try to upgrade the memory from the standard chip it doesnt like it!

If I add an extra 1Gb chip into the spare slot under fan casing it comes up on start up as file missing system32drivers tfs.sys. If I remove the original chip and replace with one 1Gb card only it fires up ok, but again when you try to add the second 1Gb card the same error message, file missing system32drivers tfs,sys comes up.I have looked at a PDF of the instruction manual and follwed to the letter as far as ram upgrade but at this juncture am now completely at a loss as to what to do next.The 2200 will support 2Gb ram so why cant I load it?

Acer :: Memory Upgrade -5003 WLMi

Jan 29, 2009

I have an Acer 5003WLMi and I would like to add 1GB of memory. I did a crucial scan and they recommended some memory, specifically the DDR-PC2700 1GB CT478616. Now, I was ready to buy it, but on Amazon I did a search for DDR-PC2700 memory and found another 1GB DDR-PC2700, this time with part number CT12864X335. Given the sensitivity here, I would like reassurance, so is there any difference in these two parts and is it okay to buy the memory from Amazon, or should I just buy the one Crucial recommended?

Here are the links for each memory from Crucial.

Acer :: 5315 Upgrade Drive Clone To Larger Drive

Oct 2, 2008

I gained a lot of information from the 5315 CPU Upgrade Thread. I'd particularly like to thank BigOzone, Hoggie and Quilty997. There are many others but information from the above formed the basis of my upgrade.

Other information I've collected from other parts in the forum.

The specification of the laptop was as follows.

Acer Aspire 5315
Celeron 550 2.0Ghz (eek)
1gb of Ram
Vista Home Basic (double eek)
Atheros Wireless Card
80Gb Toshiba Hard Disk

The new Specification is.

Core2Duo T7500 2.2Ghz 800 Mhz Front Side Bus 4Mb Cache
3Gb of Crucial Ram
Vista Home Basic (No Choice At the Minute)
Intel 4965 AGN Wireless Card
200Gb Hitachi Hard Disk

The CPU Upgrade I won't actually cover, not necessary when there is a fantastic sticky at the top of this forum. The Upgrade took about 15 minutes, but the actual swap took about 5 minutes or so, I was very anal about cleaning the heatsink and applying AS5. I think the biggest scare was the door unerneath, quite tricky to get off and put back on without damaging the tabs.

My main focus is the hard drive swap, whilst maintaining all the eRecovery software. For this I use Acronis True Image Home, I am aware that the trial can be downloaded or users obtain by other means, can I just say BUY IT as it only cost me 17 from Amazon.co.uk and as usual it was cheaper in the US. The biggest reason for buying is that some features are not available in the trial. I also bought a Laptop SATA External Drive Holder and boy was I glad I did......................

Acer :: Aspire 5610 4537 Memory Upgrade

May 7, 2009

I have been looking into upgrading my Acer aspire 5610-4537 laptop every single place I looked said something different I finally decided I would trust the website www.crucial.com and there crucial system scanner tool which worked perfect and was correct even thought everyone else said it was wrong. My CPU had 2 caches for 2x512mb to make a 1gig of ram which is no where near enough for this laptop to be running windows vista or even thinking of running multiple programs. So after I ran the crucial scanner tool it told me what ram I had currently and how much I could add to my system it picked 2 GB 200pin ddr2 sodimm 256x64 pc2-5300 dual die so I ordered two of them to bring my system to 4gigs. I was a little worried because I do only have a 32bit operating system but all I had to was unplug the old chips and insert the new ones and press power and that was it no updates no changing bios or operating system so I would highly recommend using this web site.

Processor
Genuine Intel(R) CPU T2250 @ 1.73GHz

Memory (RAM)
4.00 GB
Graphics
Mobile Intel(R) 945 Express Chipset Family
Gaming graphics
256 MB Total available graphics memory
Primary hard disk
21GB Free (53GB Total)

Acer :: Memory Upgrade/Resolution Change - Aspire 3680

Oct 1, 2007

My brother just bought an Acer Aspire 3680.He purchased 1 gig of DDR2 Memory from Crucial. When we get to the desktop the screen is fine at first then the screen goes off and back on with 8 bit display. 512 DDR2 came in the machine. Crucial site said he could mix memory sizes. I tried it with the 1 gig stick by itself in case the mixed memory was the problem. Same thing..I've tried 2 sticks of 512...same thing. I've tried 2 sticks of 1 gig each..same problem. This laptop won't allow any upgrade at all. Will only run correctly with (1) 512 stick. I've never seen this problem before. I've installed many memory sticks in computers. This is a first for me. What could be causing this?? Any advice would be appreciated. BTW. the computer shows the upgrade amount of memory but the display color keeps changing to 8 Bit! I change it back to 32 and it reverts back after a few moments to 8 Bit. I went to Acer and installed an updated driver for the Intel Graphics card thinking the driver would help. I haven't installed a bios update yet. Called Acer and they said to return it for repair.

Acer :: 5672 Memory Upgrade With Benchmark Results (667MHz CL4 RAM)

Oct 21, 2008

One of the things that truly bugged me about this laptop was that it only shipped with 533MHz RAM (PC2-4200) when the hardware supported 667MHz (PC2-5300). When I started looking to upgrade I was bugged again that the 667MHz memory I was finding had a CAS Latency of 5 where the 533MHz ran at CL4. Then I finally located some 667MHz CL4 memory and decided to pull the trigger.

I am happy with the purchase and would recommend the upgrade to anyone with this laptop. I can't say if I used the best memory benchmarking program, but at the very least I can publish my results using SiSoftware Sandra Lite:
1) Memory Bandwidth test (HIGHER is better)
2) Memory Latency test (LOWER is better for both)
3) Cache & Memory test (HIGHER is better for Combined, LOWER is better for Speed factor)

PC4200 CL4 2x1GB (Original memory)
1) Memory bandwidth 3524 MB/s
2) Memory latency 138 ns, Speed factor 66.0
3) Cache & memory Combined index 9375 MB/s, Speed factor 14.2

PC5300 CL5 2x1GB (borrowed from a friend during the upgrade for reference)
1) Memory bandwidth 3588 MB/s
2) Memory latency 122 ns, Speed factor 63.7
3) Cache & memory Combined index 9645 MB/s, Speed factor 13.3

PC5300 CL4 2x1GB
1) Memory Bandwidth: 3663 MB/s
2) Memory Latency: 114 ns, Speed factor 55.2
3) Cache & Memory: Combined index 9910 MB/s, Speed factor 12.6.......

Acer :: Total Memory In Task Manager Incorrect After Upgrade To 4gb Aspire 5735

Jan 18, 2009

I just updated my Acer Aspire 5735 notebook from 3gb DDR2 to 4gb DDR2. The bios now detects 4gb total as does Vista's System Page (Control Panel/System in Ultimate 64bit)

However when i go to task manager/performance my total physical memory shows up as 3000MB and the Physical Memory Usage graph seems to reflect this 3gb total.

Is there something I need to do to get vista to detect and utilise the 4gb total?

Dell :: Memory Upgrade

Nov 6, 2009

I have a 2.5 year old E1705 notebook. I'm going to upgrade to W7 soon and in the process I thought I'd upgrade my memory from 2GB to 4GB.

I ran Dell's utility from their tech support page and it seems to be the case that the maximum my computer will support is 2GB! Is that possible?

In any case, I ran a diagnostic program (from Dell's utility) and it says my computer has two memory slots, and currently each slot on my computer has "Dual In-line Memory Module 1GB, 533, 128X64, 8K, 200", whatever that means.

I assume the 533 is memory speed (Hz) value. So according to Dell's utility, I am unable to increase the amount of RAM, but I could, for instance, "upgrade" to better chips (i.e., Dell sells DDR2 SDRAM Memory Speed: 800 MHz). Price would be $56.
