I have just purchased a Acer Aspire 5315 for my wife to play with. It came with Vista and only 512mb of memory which I understand from issues on this forum that this is no way near enough. Now if I were to buy 2gb of memory which a friend of mine says he will put in for me will that void the warranty in any way? Thanks for your time.
... of a new laptop. After about 18 months or so I wouldn't worry as much.
I had a look around and most Acer Aspire 5315 laptops I have seen come with 1GB of RAM, although Crucial state that it has 512MB as standard. click here Who did you buy it from? Maybe, if it's someone local, they'll upgrade the memory for you. 512MB of RAM is the minimum for Vista Basic, so it should run okay. Normally suppliers and manufacturers allow you to upgrade the memory in laptops and some other components in a desktop (graphics card, etc.). If you ask the seller, as Diemmess has suggested, you should get your mind set at rest.
I got on to the company yesterday and they said that replacing the Ram does not invalidate the warranty so that is good news. Thanks for your replies but I guess I should have done that in the first place!!
