No. the information on your computer is stored on your hard drive when you properly shut down Windows.
If all goes well, and you have the correct RAM, all that will happen is you computer's performance will increase.

What are the specs on your computer?

2 GB total is the maximum supported for that model (I couldnt find the Acer Spec page on it but its pretty unanimous from a google search). You will need the spec page to find out the supported speeds.


Quick edit: found the users guide which states that said notebook can handle 2 GB DDR2 400MHz using 2 sockets (2x 1 Gb sticks) so your hopes of 1 Gb of Ram are very good. Acer Product guide Downloads
