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?

Dell :: Memory Speed Affecting Windows Experience (memory Operations)

Oct 13, 2008

A friend just showed me his new Dell Vostro lappy. He has 4 GB of DDR2 800mhz memory on it when compared to my 4 GB of DDR2 667mhz memory on my XPS 1530

However, under his windows experience score - he gets 5.9 score for memory operations while I just get a 5.1. I can't believe that a couple of hundred mhz can result in such a drastic difference.

Is there something optimized for his system but not for mine?

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?

Oct 6, 2009

I just purchased an AS1410 and have been researching memory modules. Amazon has one for $32, which is a 200 pin 667 Mhz stick. I bought the laptop from ebiz and they have several modules for sale but don't list exact applications. They list a DDR2-667 SODIMM 2GB/128x8 Value Notebook Memory; is this the memory that will fit my AS1410?

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 :: 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 :: 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....

stuck in a Memory Stick PRO Duo (without the adapter) in my Acer Aspire One notebook, but was able to get it out with tape. Perhaps this will help other people in the same situation.

Apparently you have to make 15 posts to submit a thread, but I'm a preschool teacher with limited technology skills, so it you go to w w w dot LloydandLauren dot com and look at the November 21st post, you can see how I got it out.

Acer :: Aspire 5517 Memory

Oct 18, 2009

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.

Acer Aspire E1-571-6650 :: Almost Out Of Memory

Sep 12, 2014

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?

I have Acer Aspire 7730G.

For some time my BIOS (v0.3636) shows 4094 MB of Total Memory (RAM). But I remember that I had earlier exactly 4096 MB.
