Q: Mixing memory in Acer Aspire laptop

1 4gb samsung pc3-12800 1.35 v
1 4gb nanya pc3-10600 1.5 v

The timings are listed different on the stick.
HWInfo reports that at 666.7 both are 9-9-9-24
Crucial will sell me all 1.35 v memory as upgrades and the 4830T-6678 Timeline X came with the [email protected]
The laptop boots and runs with both sticks installed

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Is the laptop reporting 8GB of memory installed? If it is, you should be okay

I have an Acer Aspire 5552G-7641 laptop with 4gb of memory (2x2gb). The max memory supported is 8gb so i put in 2x4gb memory sticks. When I check the system info it says 8gb installed (4 gb usable).

I read alot of forums and it says to change the dram voltage but I have no idea how to do this. The BIOS that comes with this laptop is also very basic and does not allow customization of specific settings.

Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated.

Type msconfig in search. Make sure the max memory is UNchecked.

Yes you can, as long as the specs match with your current RAM all DDR3 PC3L-12800 memory stick will work. You don't need to pay attention to brand names as they all do the same thing, Samsung, Kingston, Hynix and Crucial are few brands you could consider.

The service manual for the E5-575G doesn't seem to be available. Crucial says you have 2 banks of 1 so that would take 2 16GB dimms.

I have an Acer Aspire R7-571. On the specs sheet it says that the RAM memory can be extented up to 12 GB of RAM. Can I still put 16 Meg RAM? Would it help to have more or would it be a problem? Right now I Have 2 x 4 GB. Thanks

A:Acer Aspire R7-571 RAM memory upgrade

First, you shouldn't need more than 8GB total unless you're doing something REMARKABLY memory-intensive. My high-end desktop has 8GB, and it would be cheap and easy for me to change that to 16GB, but it's simply not worth it. 8GB is fine for 98% of people, whether your uses include office work, Internet browsing, or even high-end gaming. If you DO really need more than 8GB, I think you'll be limited to 12GB. On the R7, 4GB tends to be soldered onto the motherboard. You can replace your other 4GB SODIMM with an 8GB SODIMM for 12GB total. You can always get a torx screwdriver and open it up for a look. But you should be fine with 8. If you're looking for a performance boost, according to that spec sheet you've linked, the R7-571 in your country didn't include any SSD. You should have an empty MSATA port that you can use with an MSATA SSD. Moving your Windows from the 1TB HDD to a MSATA SSD will make it far more responsive.

Hello,
I have an Acer Aspire 5532 running Windows 7 64 bit with 3.00 GB ram and I have 2.75 GB of ram saying unusable. My computer is and has been very slow and I haven't recently added or removed any hardware.

I have checked 2 possible problems from info I found on this problem being I've located msconfig, boot, advanced options, max memory is "unchecked" and have checked my bios which do show the correct amount of memory but I can not enable "memory remap" because bios does not support. I've added a resource monitor screen shot below.

Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated, Dave

A:Unusable Memory Windows 7 64 bit Acer Aspire 5532

DaveB727, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Everything looks fine in that screen shot. The "missing" ~256 MB of ram is being allocated to the onboard video (AMD 780G) which has none of its own dedicated memory and it has to get it from somewhere, so it is shared with system ram. Short of lowering the amount it can use (not recommended) in the bios (if the option is even there), leave it alone.

As for it being slow, that could be any of a whole host of things, but the video memory isn't one of them. To start if you haven't,

1. Use something like ccleaner,

CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

to help with cleaning up junk/temp files.

2. Defrag.

3. Check for malware.

Hi all. I have a new Acer Aspire One A0722 that I got on sale for really cheap at Target. I really like the machine but sometimes Windows seems slow. I wonder if it needs more memory since I read this forum and it seems like additional memory would make things more responsive for me.

Does anybody know how to do a memory upgrade on this Acer? Pictures would be greatly appreciated as I am somewhat computer dumb and have not done anything like this before.

Thx to you in advance. Really appreciate it!!!

It's a netbook. More memory is not going to improve the performance significantly. If you just bought it, and you think it's slow, I suggest you take it back and buy a regular laptop with a more powerful processor.

I just bought the Acer Aspire AZC-700G-UW61. First question, how do I access the memory compartment to add RAM? Second question, Can I remove Windows 10 and install Windows 7? Are there complete Acer drivers available for W7? I can't find any support page for the AIO?Thanks.

windows 10 ,32 gig hard drive,,These things are crazy-it does an update and have 2 gig left on drive so i try to do a reset but cant -it said i need 2 more gigs ,so i do a roll back and was able to do factory reset--i cant get the 0S on two dvds -i have to buy a stupid thumb drive--why didnt they make these things with an 80 gig drive-it would of cost maybe 2 more dollars

the worst thing is i have no mouse, yet it will work with external mouse

im through with buying windows i think

btw "advanced system care" software seemed to have saved my xp computer for now anyway
 

A:Acer Aspire Laptop

First of all try disk clean up > run that
Then again but this time choose 'clean up system files'

Run CCleaner Slim (only in its 'default' settings) and run the cleaner. Use its 'Tools' to remove all but the latest System Restore point.

Other things to free space is do a clean uninstall (using something decent like Revo Uninstaller in its Advanced mode) of any programs you don't need or use.

so I have a Acer Aspire E5-574-G laptop, and have several questions about it. Firstly, I would very much like to replace the battery in my laptop with a better one with more capasity. Is one sold? if so, what do i get? secondly, I have the dedicated graphics card, and whenever the battery gets low it swithces to the intigrated graphics, even when plugged in. How can I make it use the dedicated graphics for the programs it usually would, even when the battery is low?         Cheers,                  Randomdude

A:New Help Bad with a Acer Aspire Laptop! Please

I am not sure what else I could do to see if in fact the drive was badIf you have another computer and by using a USB external enclosure, you may be able to check the status of both the new and old laptop drives. There maybe a chance that your hard drive is not well seated and needs to gently press while powering up your laptop and then try checking on your BIOS utility. Check also for any dented pins. Have you tried reapplying thermal paste for the CPU and look for any oxidation and burnt components?

Hello NiQui and welcome to TSF!

Have you tried booting in Safe-Mode?.
If not you can try this by holding F8 when Windows is about to boot and a menu should appear. You should select " Boot in Safe Mode". See if you manage to get to desktop with this.

Work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot.

In particular run a full Disk Check from DVD or Repair CD System Recovery Options Command Line, followed by SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

If these fail to help work through the other steps in order until if necessary you run Factory Recovery or Clean Reinstall. You can rescue your files at any time using that step.

A:my acer aspire E15 laptop is not starting up

Since it shut down during gaming (which creates more heat), the laptop may have overheated. When that happens, it shuts down automatically to prevent permanent damage to the components.So let it cool down for a few hours then try again.If it still won't power up you'll have to take it to a laptop repair shop.

I know this has been posted a lot but mine seems to be a little odder than what has been posted. My laptop just shut off one day and will only turn on when the back/bottom of the laptop is not on, which means my motherboard is completely exposed, once I put the back/bottom back on it will not turn on. I thought it might have been the fan, its not brand new fan and still wont turn on. Any help would be awesome!
 

A:Acer Aspire laptop won't turn on

This is not an easy one to help with without have the laptop in my own hands. You will most likely find that there is a bad connection somewhere that is being broken when the base is fitted. Have a good look at all the ribbon cable connections as one has probably worked loose.

Keeps randomly shutting down. Yes I've run my virus program and made sure the fans running and clean. Still, however gets hot, so I'm wondering if I might need to replace the fan. How can I know for sure?3.) Keeps telling me I need to update or install the flash player but when I do, it says I have the most updated version.4.) Can play and hear music played by my media player, but when I try to burn the file to a disc it says either to install cd/dvd burner or the format is wrong. I have a cd/dvd burner installed and it works just great except when I download music from the internet and try burning them to a cd.

There's no way to upgrade a video card in a laptop unless it's something from ASUS, MSI, Alienware, (If you're lucky)

But even if you could, the upgrade would probably be anywhere from $200-$600+ maybe even more. Old 7900GTX Go cards are still fetching roughly $100 on Ebay

The lights are on I even hear the fan but nothing the screen doesn't show anything.
Could anyone help me with this.
Thanks in advance.

Try reseating the memory. If you have more than one stick, try booting with just one stick, and then alternating. Sometimes, it can be the memory slot itself, so try the other.

Also, be sure to have all external devices unplugged: USB sticks, hard drives, mice, etc.

Hello folks,

My sister's Acer Aspire 3002LMI has recently ceased to power on whatsoever. Bought in '05 and run mostly from the mains, it suddenly acted as though it was running out of battery - despite being plugged into the mains - and went into hibernation.

By the time she showed it to me, pressing the power button would just make the battery charge LED flash 8 times - nothing else. Now, a few days later, absolutely nothing happens when I press the power button.

The problem occurs regardless of whether the battery is in the laptop. She never used the laptop without the battery in - as it formed part of the base - so whether it ever worked without the battery is not certain. I've also tried using another power cable, to no avail.

So, any ideas what the cause of this problem could be? Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
Rob

Hi

My first post and its a problem

basically I have a Acer Laptop when it goes into standby and you try to go back to desktop you get a bluescreen of death and reboots but it happens to fast to see the error.

Other times it will just randomly freeze for no reason.

Sometimes when you press the power button all you get is a black screen.

I have installed winxp home and pro editions, done all service pack updates and driver updates. Updated the bios. and still the problems persist.

Has any one got a solution or faced the same problems.

I've had this since it was new, but I got a more powerful asus laptop for christmas last year.However, thats waiting for a new power supply.

This Acer was never THIS bad. Even resuming from sleep mode, the mouse lags badly, sometimes freezing for a few seconds. Chrome takes forever to load. Facebook freezes often. Even using the start menu, it lags. The final straw was when I went to delete a small text document, the entire laptop froze solid and needed to be rebooted.

This one is a 5820T. I downloaded the zip file for this model from the Acer website and after extracting I find two executables, one for DOS, one for Windows. Nothing else. (ZQ1_125.exe for both - not .bat - not .rom). There is no "Flash-it" file, no.FD file.

I have always flashed a BIOS on boot from floppy or USB. And I have always advised to never flash a BIOS from inside Windows. So the thought of this being the only way is making me ill.

If there is a way to do it USB I could use a walk-thru. Thanks.

A:Has anyone flashed a BIOS on an Acer Aspire Laptop?

I have an aspire 5935g and did update the bios successfully within windows but must admit that was long before signing up here and reading endless people saying not to do it that way, however it worked out fine in my case. I think the consensus is to only flash the bios if it provides a fix you need.

Just looked through the download I used and the DOS version does contain a flash it file. Here is what I had.

DOS
Windows
I know thats probably not any help but thats just my experience

Good Luck

Hi all hoping someone can help me with this I was online earlier when suddenly my laptop started screaming about a virus being detected My virus protection expired last week and I hadn t got around to replacing it thanks to having no money so in a bit of laptop 5335 will Acer boot up not Aspire a panic I immediately turned off Acer Aspire 5335 laptop will not boot up my modem and then turned off the laptop Now however the laptop will not start up here s the exact sequence of events that takes place on pressing power on Acer loading screen starts as normal Blue loading bar fills at normal speed Screen then switches to blank black screen with a flashing cursor in the top left corner Pressing most buttons produced a high pitched beep sound and the only thing that seems to do anything is Ctrl-Alt-Delete which simply seems to reset the black screen with the flashing cursor - the screen goes black then reverts to the erroneous screen I can still get into my Setup Utility screen by pressing F during the Acer boot screen but when it goes beyond that none of the F buttons will work Any suggestions EDIT Some more information It s a Vista machine Warranty expired ages ago sadly And I haven t opened it up yet nbsp

A:Acer Aspire 5335 laptop will not boot up

First, we can suggest a number of security softwares that are absolutely free and are excellent in protection.

Second, there is the possibility you'll need to do a reformat due to infection. However, first go to our Virus and Malware Removal forum and read the Updated 8 Step sticky. At this point it doesn't see you'll be able to necessarily do the steps but at least familirize yourself with the process.

Then on that forum, if you cannot do the steps, post your issues and make sure you tell them about the virus.

Hey all,

I just acquired a new laptop an Acer Aspire E1-510 laptop.
It comes with Windows 8 by default and wanted to install Windows 7, so I did my regular pre-install driver checks, and found out Acer does not have Windows 7 drivers for this model.
I saw in another post that the same thing happened to someone else for a different Acer E1 model and they found the drivers. Could you help me with finding the correct drivers?

Thanks in advance,

What does the BSOD message say?
Boot off of the XP CD Or download the Recovery Console ISO. Burn it to CD with IMGBurn and get to the Recovery Console. Here type chkdsk /R and press enter. The Check Disk utility will try and fix any file errors.
You can also download the ISO image for Drive Fitness Test in my signature and burn the image to a CD using IMGBurn and boot off of the newly created CD and run the short and extended tests on the HDD to test the integrity of the drive.

Hi there.... So I spent an hour this morning and ironically used up 30mins of Skype time to call Acer about my free $10 Skype voucher! I bought this laptop about a month ago and did what many people here seemed to also do - I followed the steps outlined in the leaflet included with my purchase....I registered my product with Acer and waited for an email with the voucher number for Skype....and surprise, suprise it never arrived.  I spoke with *6* different people this morning and wasted not only my time but my own Skype minutes calling them.  If anyone from Acer can help me with this I would very much appreciate it - as thus far I'm extremely unimpressed with how this has been handled.  Thank you!

Got my 5672WLMi last week and out of the box the sound worked fine on boot. But the minute I started playing a game or a media file it starts breaking up and stays that way. I work in IT so did the following things:

Updated to the latest Realtek HD Audio drivers
Uninstalled and re-installed the sound device
Updated to latest Bios
Restored to factory settings
Clean format and re-install of XP Pro SP2

None of these worked. Could it be a hardware problem?

Hi -

Having a problem with my Acer Aspire laptop. When I boot it up all I see is this grey screen:

I recently had it hooked up via HDMI to a TV that was doing the same thing. Any ideas?
 

A:Acer Aspire laptop - grey screen

If you connect it to an external monitor and get the same problem, then it is more likely driver or graphics card hardware related, probably not an issue with the actual laptop screen. Unfortunately this can make diagnosis harder without physically getting hands on it.

How old is the laptop?
What is the exact model?

A:Acer Aspire Laptop won't start/boot

You can either have a failing hard drive on your hands or an over heating system or perhaps both. First lets test your hard drive by going to another computer if possible.

Download UBCD which is in my signature.Burn the ISO Image to a blank CD using Imgburn (How to burn a ISO Image using Imgburn) burn at lowest speed. With the newly burned cd boot with the cd go to HDD>Diagnostics>The make and model of your hard drive, Seagate, Maxtor, Drive Fitness which is Hitachi, Or Western Digital. Perform a short and long test. Could also be called "Standard" and "Extended" test or also "Comprehensive" test. The Seagate hard drive test will work on most drives.

If you can not find the right test for your hard drive your OEM computer may have it's own hard drive diagnostics testing tool. Refer to your OEM computer documentation to find out how to access these test. Also try going to the manufacture of your machine to find documentation about it. Also consider going to the manufacture of your hard drive to look to see if they have hard drive diagnostics test. The ideal test or method would include an ISO that could be burned via an image to a cd which would be made bootable.

Also go into bios under Hardware Monitor or PC health and look at temp readings and post here.

Then we will give the next steps depending on the results.

Also I see in your profile you have listed Windows XP. This a Windows 7/Vista portion of TSF. Can you tell us which version of Windows you have so we can better assist you.
