Having problems with your Acer PC Desktops ?

I have an acer extensa 5620-6830 with 1g memory on a dual core which means I only have 512m for each core. Right? What is the most memory I can add and not having done this before what kind of memory chip do I buy? Thanks


Answers :

DUAL CORE refers to the amount or cores your PROCESSOR has, Memory indicates the TOTAL amount for the WHOLE SYSTEM, NOT the cores or the precessor. You should be able to max out your memory @ 4gb, but check your machine specs at Acer website for Max amount and type.
