Anyone successfully increased the memory? Tried to add another 500 and the screen split into 16 columns after a few minutes. Had to revert to the original memory. And back to a slow laptop.

RAM either usually works or doesn't work. . . . to do that it soon like it's munted

Well, actually, it was a techo firm - techo had to come back and remove it, confessing he didn't know where to get one that worked for my old Acer.
