My machine is an Acer Aspire 5166BY (mfg'd in 1997).
Currently has WinNT 4.0 Workstation with 32mb RAM.
I want to max it out, but can't seem to find the specs.
How can I find out how best to max out the RAM?
Please don't tell me to ditch my machine and buy a new one.
My wife tells me that all the time ;-)

DITCH IT!!! ;) ehehehehehe

I think the best way to tell is to have a look at the current ram that is in it, and see what it is...

From there you can look at upgrading...  I would think that maybe 512 at the very very very maximum tho..

More like 256 would be the max... and as for availablity... you might have to look for second hand bits.. Im not too sure if the old school stuff is still around..

here they only show 32Mb modules for this laptop, so depending on the number of slots, you can calculate the max :   http://www.memory4more.com/show.cgi?ID=acer.htm
