Hi all!

I have

ACER ASPIRE Series notebook 5100
512 MB RAM DDR II
ATI RADEON XPRESS 1100
WIN XP SP2 OS


I am thinking to upgrade my RAM from 512 that i have, to 2 GB with 2 chips of 1GB each.
My question is, can I actually do that? A technician implied that my PC maybe isnt able to take all this RAM. I know that my PC has 2 slots for RAM chips.

Secondly, because of my job and hobby, I would like to have a Firewire card. Can I do that? I mean, the case doesnt have an input/output space for one (silly question but ....).


Thanx for your time, ask me if you need any specifications!

According to Crucial.com your computer will support 2 gig of memory. If you computer has a PCMCIA card slot you can use these for the firewire.

I have an Acer Aspire 5315 and it only accepts 2 GB of RAM as a maximum.

According to this:

http://global.acer.com/products/notebook/as5100.htm

you can go up to 4GB. 2GB in each slot. :huh:

DR


I think I would believe Crucial before I would believe Acer. :thumbsup:

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

After? How do i see that lol

@ 2 posters: THANX guys! I will check those out!

PS. some silly ppl tell me that even if i go 2 GB up, it wont be so good for system, coz -as THEY say- only on a desktop computer are the results sure... Is this true?



EDIT: Yes i do have a PCMCIA card slot, this is what broadband cards use, right?
