Hi all,

Below is a copy of an email that I have sent to Acer support but got no response. I wonder if you guys have any ideas? Cheers, Epirb.


I want to upgrade my ram to 2GB.

I Purchased 2 x 1GB DDR2 PC2-5300 SODIMM.

I installed and got no beeps, no post and no boot, I tried:

Ram A in Slot 1 and Ram B in slot 2.
Ram B in Slot 1 and Ram A in slot 2.
Ram A in Slot 1 and nothing in slot 2.
Ram A in slot 2 and nothing in slot 1.
Ram B in slot 1 and nothing in slot 2.
Ram B in slot 2 and nothing in slot 1.

I then had the vendor replace my RAM and tried the same process all over again, still no beeps, post or boot.

It is now being suggested that flashing the bios will allow this to work.

I can download the BIOS ver. RO1-BO from your website but I do not know if that will help.I am happy to do this but would need step by step advice.

Please advise the soonest!
