Hi Guys and Gals.

Long story short I updated my acer travelmat 6593 from bios 1.11 to 1.20 all went well every thing worked as it should :)) I upgraded the ram with a new 2gb module. Now the bios and windows only see 2gb of ram. The laptop wont boot with the ram in 2/3 slot ive swapped them around and they both work in the 0/1 slot. Is it possible it could be a ram problem ? If so how do i backdate the bios?
I am running windows 7 ultimate 64bit or mint mate 14 64bit.
Thanks in in advance for any help.

Cheers Montychristo

you reflash with the previous version

i doubt the problem is with the bios

what do you mean by slots 2/3 and 0/1

the specs say it only has 2 slots

what does system information list for the ram

:) Hi

Yes only two slots max 2gb in each I had felt they were double sided hence the 0/1 and 2/3.
I have tried to backdate the bios no luck through windows. There is mention in the workshop manual of a crisis disk to recover bios. More for me to investigate Also in reading the workshop manual I found a list of recommended ram, the new ram is not on the list ;-(((.

Thanks for your input.

Cheers

i would leave the bios as is

the list is what they used to test with and works,they don't test all brands

with laptops i have used when you click down the ram slot,if you don't hold the ram down in the slot as you click it down it unseats
