I am trying to upgrade the memory in my Acer Aspire One ZG5 from 1 GB to 2.5 GB by putting a 2 GB memory card in. When I tried to boot it up, the screen remained blank and nothing happened.

Question I have is whether 2GB is too big for it or did I get the wrong memory part for it (see below). The memory fitted like a glove.

Memory inserted was PC2 5300 667MHz
Netbook configuration 1GB (PC2 5300S 555) 160 GB HDD

Thanks for your help

Hi there,

Acer ZG5 does not support 2 GB memory because of onboard 512 MB. They put 512MB onboard an sodimm slot into same memory channel. And this channel can only handle 2GB total. If acers stupid engineers put sodimm slot to other channel. Max memory can be 2.5GB. damn ..
