Hi,

I'm planning on upgrading the RAM on my dad's acer aspire 3690 laptop (windows vista basic).

It currently has 512Mb installed.

I've done a scan on crucial.com and my report is below:

Maximum Memory Capacity: 2048MB
Currently Installed Memory: 0MB
Available Memory Slots: 2
Number of Banks: 2
Dual Channel Support: Yes
CPU Manufacturer: GenuineIntel
CPU Family: Intel® Celeron® M CPU 430 @ 1.73GHz Model 14, Stepping 8
CPU Speed: 1729 MHz
Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

It recommended a pack with 2 x 1Gb:
Part #: CT607443 DDR2 PC2-5300 CL=5 Unbuffered NON-ECC DDR2-667 1.8V 128Meg x 64 more details

Does anyone know of a tutorial or some sort of instructions for installing this RAM? - acer aspire 3690 laptop windows vista basic

Any help would be much appreciated.

:thumbsup:

See page 73 of manual (not screen) for RAM install instructions.
