My Acer Aspire 5101 wasn't running very fast so after the usual anti-spyware and anti-virus programs I tried the Windows Memory Diagnostic program booting from cd.
My laptop came with two sticks of 512MB DDR2 RAM. I got fails on wmats+ so I tried each stick seperately in both slots. I got the same errors for each stick in either slot.
I don't know what to do now. My laptop is out of warranty so if I want to speak to Acer technical support there's a 50p/min helpline. I thought I'd ask for advice on this forum first to see if anyone had any other advice before I end up spending a fortune on the phone.
I've an Acer Aspire 5101 with a turion64 processor...
I've upgraded the RAM memory to 4GB and I'm going to upgrade also the OS (Win XP) to Win XP 64bit (BTW not with Win XP professional x64, simply the 64 bit version of XP) to use the RAM fully...
Well, searching infos about my RAM, I've seen, with a small software (CPU-Z), that my socket is the S1 (638 pins) model, and searching in the web I've found that this one is used also for processors like the Turion64 X2 (that, if I'm not wrong, is the AMD dual core, isn't it?)...
Now my question is: Can I change my CPU upgrading it with a dual core one?
If yes: What kind of dual core CPU can I put on?!? The Turion64 X2 only, or also something better?
Another little question: if I upgrade also my hard disk to something like a 7.2k rpm one (from mine, that's a 5k rpm), it's better or indifferent? There will be an increase in speed or it's only a way to waste my cash ?
Figured the G60T was sufficient, cheaped out on everything, 3GB memory. Loaded everything up and started receiving blue screen in Vista. Reloaded from factory image and still seems to be flaky. I ran memtest 86+ (failed in test 5 and 8) and windows diagnostic tools failed ERAND test. I think the memory is okay as they test fine separately so either timing off or bus or something else is messed. One week of frustration with HP support. Bottom line HP answer is if the BIOS memory test runs okay, then everything is okay. What a hassle. Anyone know if there is some quirk that would have the tests fail but everything be okay? I guess we'll return but printer and other rebates were bundled in along with cash back.
I have problem with my Acer Aspire 7520G. When I turn it on, after memory check and disk check I got messages:
Resource Conflict PCI Serial Bus Controler in slot 01 Bus:01 Device:04 Function:00 ERROR Bus:01 Device:04 Function:01 ERROR Bus:01 Device:04 Function:02 ERROR Bus:01 Device:04 Function:03 ERROR Bus:01 Device:04 Function:04 ERROR
after this wont boot neither from HDD nor CD/DVD. Just blink currsor apears.
After a few of restarts, if I got luck, it will boot up "normally". I checked in Windows system that Bus 01 Device 04 is acctualy
Ricoh 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller at Function 00, SDA Standard Compliant SD Host Controller at Function 01, Ricoh SD/MMC Host controller at Function 02, Ricoh Memory Stick Controller at Function 03, Ricoh xD-Picture Card Controller at function 04.
As my Studio 1557 kept giving blue screen, I decided to run diagnostics. When both rams were installed I got 2000.0123 Memory integrity test failed. Then I uninstalled one, i got same error.I tried the one i just uninstalled on same slot, i got same error.And then i tried them both on the other slot, i didn't have any errors.
The thing is, fan has been changed 2 times, and mainboard has been changed before. I've been using this notebook with an acceptable Thermaltake cooler from the day I have bought it. What makes this notebook like that? 7200rpm HDD? i7 processor?
My HP elitebook 8540p has been serving me well for years but recently it shows a bluescreen and resets after entering the windows password.
Diagnostics when starting up say:
Memory Test: Failed Failure ID : UOEDUC-56C77E-XD7U3G-40N603 Product ID : WTO38ES#ABH Memory Module 2 Bottom-Slot 1 (right)
This means the memory card underneath the keyboard should be replaced, correct? I am confused by the message saying "Module 2 Bottom-Slot 1 (right)", I see only one card... If so, what is the best way to acquire a new memory card (Primary memory board)?
Blue screening regulary over past 3 weeks, albeit in random pattern. Removed recent programs just in case. Just ran dell test and it failed on System Memory - Advanced Pattern Test. Whether blue screen and system memory fail are related.
Just taken ownership of a 2nd hand 5101. looks like it has been reset back to factory settings but the built in orbicam doesn't seem to work properly !
I have tried reading various posts, I have tried to install both the bison and logitech drivers , but all I get is a greyed out screen no matter what I am using ...msn messenger, orbicam software, etc ...
going through the hardware check etc , it says all ok with cam ?
swapping the cpu on my acer 5101 to a dual core. The manual says in can take dual core cpu's but I swaped the mk36 single core for a tl50 1.6ghz dual core and it does not work (tried 2 different dual core cpu's). The machine does not boot. I have the newest bios 3.10a .
Since 2 years ago, I owned an Acer Aspire 9420. It is a 17" laptop with Intel CPU (Intel C2D T5600). According to Intel website, T5600 processor have Intel Virtualization Technology. However, for unknown reason, there is no option to turn ON Virtualization in the BIOS. Even Acer doesn't provide BIOS update that support this feature. My works involved VMware simulation & this prevent me from running 64 bit guest OS. Since buying another laptop seems not worth at all & Acer Aspire 9420 is a strong laptop to do heavy job, I'm determine, what ever it takes, I will enable Virtualization on this laptop.
For the past 2 years, I have working hard to achieve my objective. I has search & search in the internet and I found a couple of article about hacking the BIOS to enable Virtualization. This is a few forum's threads & articles I found:-
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....
I recently upgraded the ram in my 5315 with 2x1GB 5300 DDR2 sticks. Ever scince i did the upgrade i have had the Memory Management Blue screen about once every 3days. The sitcks are installed correctly and ive even tried swapping the order of the sitcks in the slots and i still have this problem. running Vista Basic 32-Bit
I recently purchased a 5517-5779 from best buy. Got a nice deal on it and i think im starting to see why...its only a 160gb HD which im kinda kicking myself for getting. To start with i was sitting at about 105gb with nothing of my own installed.
a week later im sitting at 99.6gb. i have still installed nothing. i have used many HP's and havent had this problem.. there seems to be a memory leak somewhere. Are these prominent with Acer products? I should have familiarized myself with Acer a bit more before purchasing one of their products. If i could resolve this issue i would be 100% satisfied with my newest purchase.
ETA-The pc has already had the geek squads "optimization and restoration" done.
I have an Aspire E1-571-6650 that is about 1.5 yrs old. I am getting messages that I am almost out of memory (currently 4GB of memory). Not sure what is using up the memory as I don't do any gaming or graphics. I do use the internet, facebook, MS Office, MapQuest, Google Earth, etc.
Beside why am I running out of memory? Can I add memory to this notebook? Got plenty of disk space but might want to add an additional 4GB or more of internal. Possible?
For the past two days LSC is alerting that Hardware scan has detected one or more hardware failures. The tests in which my laptop G505 59379534 is failing are given as Targeted read and smart short self test. Also against local connection test warning is shown. My OS is windows 8.1. Only couple of days back I have installed HP2545 printer on my PC. I do not know wheher this has something to do with present status of laptop. Also I am using Kaspersky internet security 2014. I am worried whether this alert message points to any serious impending problem for my laptop. Laptop is almost 9 months old. It is still under warranty.
an Acer Aspire 5570z was gifted to me by my father and I own it since 1.5 Year and it works cool, the notebook came with 512MB RAM and I updated it to 512x2 a year back and every thing worked cool, but now, I finally decided to buy a 2 GB RAM, I bought a 2 GB DDR RAM and inserted in my laptop, the laptop works good but problem is that now when I go to CMOS setup, it shows up as Extended memory to 2048MB but I own Windows Vista Ultimate (French) 32BITS ; but my Windows only shows up as I have only 1.00GB of memory!
I wanted to open my box to check the ease (or not) of a memory upgrade but had a helluva sweaty time trying to get the compartment cover off.
After undoing the 4 screws and getting it open a bit, it still seemed VERY firmly held in the vicinity of the fan vent area.
The plastic cover is pretty thin and I was terrified of breaking it, so tried a little prying, a bit of heaving, some levering, tugging, jabbing, swearing, praying etc. I even had the computer overturned and was looking for a way through the keyboard where I was convinced that a bolt must be holding the memory cover down.
Anyway it DID finally come loose but it was a bit scary, so I've made a couple of scans and added some notes on the lugs which were holding it in place in the hope that it might prove useful to others in the same predicament.
One scan is of the actual lid and the other is of what's inside, in case you get to feel like pushing a screwdriver in there - (don't).
When I check in the bios, it has the video memory set at 64mb. It does not give me the option to change this value like my old aspire 5100. Does anyone know of a way to increase the video memory on this lappy?
I have a new(ish) Aspire 5580-6974 notebook: Core 2 Duo (T5300) 533 MHz 1GB RAM, etc.
I just bought a 2GB DDR2 PC2-5300 dual channel memory kit; that should be a relatively simple upgrade.
I want to eventually upgrade the CPU to the T7600, which is 677 MHz. The intel 945GM chipset should support that, but is it just a matter of dropping in the new CPU? Or are there changes to be made on the motherboard (jumpers, etc)? There doesn't seem to be any such setting options in the BIOS.
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?
Have a new 3690-2970 with 512 memory Vista Home basic and it runs extremely slow. It has only been on the internet to do MS updates so I know it is not infected with spyware causing it to run slowly. I was thinking a memory upgrade would help.
I got DDR2 533 SO-DIMM, 200-pin memory for it 1 gig but can't for the life of me determine where the memory chip is located
I have looked in two areas on the back of the notebook and can't find it. I looked under Hardrive. and then there is another small panel with one screw but when I opened that there was just this chrome box in there.
Question 2 once I find it can I use both the 512 and 1gig together or only the one 1 gig chip?
I tried locating a tech manual on this notebook and none of the links showed manuals for this model.
My laptop is an Acer Aspire 6935G with Intel C2D P8400 2.26GHz (1066MHz FSB) and 4GB DDR3 RAM. OS is Vista Home Premium 32-bit.
Under the memory tab in CPU-Z, the DRAM Frequency shows as 399MHz. However, the maximum bandwith for the memory under the SPD tab shows as 533MHz. If I'm correct this means my RAM is running at 800MHz instead of 1066MHz.
I've read other threads mentioning this problem and a solution was a BIOS update to v1.10. My current BIOS is v1.05, which has been on my laptop since new.
I've never updated a BIOS before and therefore reluctant in case anything goes wrong. The laptop is running fine with Vista.
it is a Acer Aspire 3680, the other day the clips that holds one stick of memory in broke, does anyone know how I could fix this, was thinking of gluing the clips back on or using electrical tape to hold memory in place,
