What make and model is your Acer system?
I can then check the specs on the motherboard. Your OS can certainly handle the memory but the fact is the motherboard will dictate how much max memory you can install on it regardless of the OS.

Please check this - http://speccy.pirifo...T5N7dA3W8COHgaV

ps. Ignore the "32 bit operating system", did a clean re-install and accidently chose 32bit instead of 64.

Thank you.

OK is your system a Acer branded system and if so there should be a make and model of the system marked on it somewhere. There are several different models of that motherboard all with the 7000 series number on it. I need either the make and model of the system or the complete model number of the motherboard. The logs though they contain a lot of info they do not contain either of the information I need to find the correct memory configuration for the system.

Yep that is the info I needed. I found this HERE which shows that 4 gigs is the maximum memory that can be installed on that laptop. :upset:
