Just a quick question regarding upgrading RAM on my Acer Travelmate 2410.
I currently have to slots for RAM cards - one of which is taken by a 248MB card, the other is empty. The type of RAM I need is "SDRAM-DDR2" if that means anything. I've tried to upgrade to 1GB memory, and have bought 2 cards both of which I have been told are 100% compatible with my laptop. After popping the card into the spare slot and switching back on, I get a blank screen and the PC doesn't boot up. I then remove the card (so the original 248 is there) and it boots up fine.
My laptop takes up to 2GB RAM - do I need to remove the original card before I install the new one? Or should it work with both cards installed? If I remove the original card and pop the new one in and it still doesn't work, can I just pop the original card back in, or will removing it and having effectively NO RAM for a few seconds cause any problems?
Any advice gratefully received as I have no idea what to do and the low 248 RAM is driving me crazy!!
