Windows 7: Computer Hangs while gaming

the memory came from Crucial with the max it out option, which i no longer see. IIRC I think the speed was 1066 as opposed to 1333. Im looking up my order now

That would actually be the only big difference in my laptop than my friends. One has a different processor but both have the same card just renamed, according to Notebook Check

I will try that when I get home today. Any issue with down grading?

Looking again at the pic you posted earlier, it looks like the RAM you have there is 533MHz. You should be fine with just about any game with the stock 4gb that was in there. Try the original RAM sticks, if the problem persists, at least we eliminate one possible cause.

Here's what Acer support lists for your model as far as RAM upgrades

  • Up to 4 GB of DDR3 1066 MHz memory, upgradeable to 12 GB using three soDIMM modules5(for 64-bit OS)
  • Up to 4 GB of DDR3 system memory, upgradable to 8 GB using two soDIMM modules5(for 64-bit OS)
Maybe I'm an idiot and the speed shouldn't matter. But give it a shot. Some computers are pretty picky about what you put in them (especially lappy's). And if I remember correctly, in my mobo's manual it says that if I want to use 8 or more gb's RAM, it has to be at least 1066MHz.

I was wondering this too I don't see to many Laptops with 12 gigs of ram

I bought the 12 gig for a Cisco emulator. So i can dabble with Cisco routers and switches. They use your ram to run the IOS just like it was sitting on your desk. 2 gig of ram barely runs 2 routers

So your system really doesn't have 12 gigs installed just 4 correct?

The other 8 is for a router?

No the laptop I upgraded from 4 to 12 so when I ran the Cisco emulator GNS3 I could have more than 2 devices running. Its like you have a lab without the hardware. The more ram you have the more switches and routers you can run.

I understand that concept but the way you made it sound like it was for the router lol

Anyway did you try removing the ram and try the original ?
