I'm working on a friends Acer PC. I've done an "Alt F10" re-install to get it to work again but it's still running slow.
I was thinking that it may need and/or could use some more RAM. I've looked inside and see that it has two 512 MB sticks of Nanya in two darker colored slots and it has two "Orange" empty slots. Does the different color slots indicate a different type of RAM needed?
I was hoping to encourage her to purchase some more RAM to help it run faster. But I need to know what to suggest to get and how much kind of stuff.
Can anyone help me out here? It's always appreciated.
PS How do you determine the make of the mother board? I've tried Everest with no success. If I could get the name I'd probably be able to find an actual photo and what not describing what's on it. The Acer site specs don't seem to say much other than it can handle up to 4 GB RAM, no description of color meaning?
