Memory upgrade causes loss of wireless connectivity

Posted: 02-06-2009, 04:17 PM
I have an Acer 9410 notebook with Vista Home Premium. It came with 1gb of
memory which I have been trying to upgrade to 4gb. The new memory installs
OK and the system sees it. However, the system no longer sees any wireless
networks. But when I install just 2GB, wireless works OK. The Acer specs
state that it is upgradeable to 4gb. But I've read that upgrading above 2GB
can be a problem with Vista. Is this true? Is this a wireless driver issue?
Has anyone run into this?

Last question - Does 4GB vs 2GB really make a difference in system
performance. (just normal usage - no heavy duty gaming)

Thx - Tom

Hi
Vista x32 would not use the whole 4GB.
So the difference between 2GB and whatever else might be achieved does not
worth the effort.
