Updating netbook RAM

I just recently bought a new netbook, it's an Acer AO725-0691. It comes with 2GB of memory, but apparently it can hold up to 4GB. Since memory is so cheap, I thought I might try upgrading it. My biggest question, of course, is what kind of RAM does it use? How do I find this out? I am pretty sure that it can only take one stick of RAM, so it would have to be 1 4GB stick, and not 2 2GB sticks. Is there any other considerations I should make? Since this is my first time upgrading RAM on a computer (since I am a noob) any tips, suggestions, or advice would be welcome.

  1. You can use netbook memory. But you need to know the supporter memory speed. Check with cpu-z to find out memory speed and then buy a 4gb memory stick with matching speed.
  2. use this to see if you could find your system http://www.corsair.com/learn_n_explore/

    So what field am I looking at in CPU-Z? I don't see any labelled "speed"
  4. look under memory for the real speed and spd for the specs of them in cpu-z
  5. Okay here's the memory screen:



    Here's the spd screen:



    What exactly am I looking for? The MHz?
  6. this is ddr3 memory and it work at jedec ­3 but could run at jedec 5 take the part number so you will find the same one ( hmt325s6cfr8c-h9 ) just goolgle that there are a lot on e-bay
  7. Try to buy DDR3-1066mhz speed memory. It will work. Or maybe DDR3-1333 as it is working now.
  8. Will this work:
    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231266

    It's the DDR3-1333, correct amount of pins, and I can't see anything else that might be incompatible.
  9. Its PC3-10666. I hope it will work as you are running PC3-10700.
  10. the new egg memory finder do not find the one you need it found some one crucial http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Aspire%20One%20725 could not see on g-skill the one you find if it will work with your system

    Okay, so the only difference I am seeing between the memory shown on Crucial is the voltage and one has DDR-1066, the other is DDR-1333. Is the voltage significant (is more better)? I assume DDR-1333 is better.
  12. DDR3-1333 is better but it seems like your netbook dosent support more than DDR3-1066. But DDR3-1333 may work.
  13. the crucial one is at 1.5 volts same as the one you use now, your stick at jedec 5 could do 685 x2 = give 1370 so the 1333 is max speed for the crucial but your system will run them lower there been test with your system model
