I'm using Acer Aspire 1705SMi laptop that is supposed to be able to take up to 2gb of ddr333 sdram 184 pin dimm. The is a DIMM based model with a sis650 chipset. it also takes 3.5 ide hard drives.
I've tried about 4 brands of ram to upgrade to 2gb(1gb stick per slot, it has 2 memory slots) and non will work, i just get a blank screen. the computer attempts to power up but can't manage it. Strangely. enough it will accept 2X 512meg sticks at ddr 333 with no problems.
I've tried crucial and their memory adviser, the ram didn't work and i've also flashed the bios up to the latest version. I'm sure i'm installing it properly.
Has anyone else has this problem or does anyone have any ideas on how to sort it out. Here's hoping
cheers for any help guys
