Pentium Dual Core E2140 Overclocking

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
My mom recently bought a fairly terrible Acer Aspire M1610 with lowest specs possible to save money, now she realizes that it's really bad. I was given the computer and told to do something with it, sell it, upgrade it, etc. So I figured I'd start out trying to overclock to see if that'd work and solve the other problems...

Specs: (Almost no specifics, even Acer's website doesn't list...)

CPU: Pentium Dual Core E2140 @ 1.6GHz frown.gif
GPU: Integrated SIS Mirage 3
RAM: 1GB DDR2
PS: 250 Watt

Kind of at a loss here, not much to go by, because I can't find the Motherboard model or anything. So really, any help is a blessing.

Only OCing wouldn't solve your problems. Get another RAM stick. The mobo comes with two RAM slots upto 4GB max in total. But 2GB will be fine for Win7 x86.

EDIT: Here are your system specs. Check it.

MORE EDIT: Use CPU-Z to find detailed info of your system.

Working with Windows Vista 32x, should I still just upgrade to 2GB RAM?
post #4 of 9
Yeah do that. My aunt had a laptop. 512mb ram. i added another 1gb. so total of 1.5gb. windows 7 x86 runs just fine. in fact it runs ubuntu 11.10 fine as well.

Yes, 1 GB is horrible for Vista/7 even if all that is going to be done is web browsing. 2GB should be fine though.
