Acer EM61SM/EM61PM Overclockable? - Page 4

post #31 of 36
Well I slap'd in 2 sticks of corsair 1gig-pc5300 667. When I look under task manager I see I have 3070 tot of physical ram. I believe thats over 3gig but I could be wrong. I also found this modded bios on another site . Hope I don't get into trouble for posting it. I haven't tried it yet. I want to but I have to make sure that if it screws up I can use the cmos jumper on my board to rest it. Let me know if this helps.

I've used the mentioned modded bios and it worked fine in my Acer ASE380.

I'm also experiencing the issue with adding RAM to the Acer. I can run 2x1GB in either paired banks fine, but as soon as I try to run all 4x1GB sticks it will try to load and reboot after maybe 30 seconds. It's doubtful the issue is with Vista. If I relax the memory speeds (thanks to the modded BIOS) to "maxmemspd" and set it to 667mhz max, I can get as far as windows trying to load for a few minutes then it just stops at a blank black screen indefinitely. Being able to change the motherboard settings to get more boot time out of the machine would indicate to me this is a motherboard issue. I know it's not the memory (g.skill PC6400) because 2 of the sticks of ram work fine, but 4 identical sticks won't.

With a new 5400+ processor on the way (to upgrade the 4400+ it came with) I'm keeping my fingers crossed I don't have to resell the new CPU too (already need to resell 2x1GB of RAM I bought).

I may have found a non-motherboard explanation which still fits in with my symptoms (since the PC does TRY to boot before rebooting in 30+ seconds of hard drive thrashing...)...

And the link for the modded bios (mod2):

after updating the bios from acer website, try to do a hard reset on the mobo

there is a red jumper on the mobo that u'll have to hard reset the mobo setting. it's near the bottom near the usb wires. it's red, move it from current jumpers to the jumpers right next to it for abt 30 secs then move it back. then boot up ur computer, it should work then

I know this is an old thread, but it is possible to have over 4G of Ram on this mb.

I don't know if its the reason why, but I have an unlocked bios that can be found here:

http://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-Acer-Aspire-E380-R01-C0-With-Unlocked-Overclocking-Options--4998

I haven't had much luck overclocking yet, since either the cool and quiet keeps throttles down the cpu, or the machine won't boot, but I do have 5G and am running Windows 7 (64bit).

The unlocked bios has a (slightly) higher voltage setting that you can choose, but I haven't played with it.
