Answers :

Hi i know these machines quite well. even though it states that the maximum ram is 4gb . it sometimes will not take it. if you have 667 ram in it change to 666 that usually works. these machines can be fussy now and again.
I did have the same issue - instead I installed 1 x 2gb stick and 1 x 1Gb stick. 3Gb is better than 2Gb anyway so its all good :)

I've got a Acer Aspire 5612ZWLMi with Vista Home Premium, supplied with 1GB DDR2 RAM. I upgraded to 2GB RAM (1 module) last year with no problems. I have just bought another 2GB module to increase up to it's 4GB max. The problem is with both memory modules in place together it does not boot up, no post just black screen. Either module works alone in either slot, just not together. Any suggestions please? Regards Steve

Blue screen with 4gb, OK with 3gb of RAM on 6720s laptop Using windows 7 (32 bit) there are 2x slots, but the top slot seems only capable of recognising 1gb of RAM without giving the blue screen at startup I have checked with a RAM supplier and they have confirmed my laptop will accept 4gb (although 32 bit OS won't see 4) Would it be best for me to get the 64 bit OS before trying the 4gb install of RAM? Or, is there a fix available to retain the current OS with 4gb? Thanks Garry

I upgraded the RAM on Lenovo X200 (745533A) from factory 2GB PC3-8500 to 4GB PC3-8500. Checked the BIOS and recognized the new 4GB memory. The trouble is, after upgrading the RAM, the WIFI stopped working and so with the linked Access Connection! All other softwares are working except the wifi radio. Fn+F5 doesn't worked either. So I tried putting back the factory 2GB, and the Wifi worked back. I purchased the 4GB new and bought the same specs PC3-8500 1066Mhz. So what's wrong?
