I’m still pretty new to this but I want to upgrade the ram in my acer aspire e5-576.

 Crucial says it’s compatible with ddr3l 1600 soddim 1.35v. Now I don’t know what any of that means. Do I need to make sure whatever I buy matches that exactly? Also doe the brands need to match? If so I guess I should just take the one that’s in it out and buy two 8gb rams of the same brand? Thanks in advance for your help.

    I have that downloaded already actually. What do you need from that to help me out?

    You should download and run Crucial's scanner since some model's came equipped with different RAM modules. Usually best to get a  matched pair (same brand same specs) since this model will operate faster than an unmatched pair. Jack E/NJ

    So i should get a pair that matches everything the crucial scan said? Ddr3l, 1600 sodimm, 1.35v? Some brands better than others ?

    You can run just about any branded pair of DDR3 laptop modules. Google these keywords --- ddr3 laptop sodimm 1.35v --- for vendors that are convenient to shipping to your location. These are very common RAM modules. Your laptop probably has a pair of 2GB modules now for a total of 4GB. You can upgrade to a pair of 4GB modules for a total of 8GB. Or a pair of 8GB modules for a total of 16GB. Crucial, Kingston, Hynix, Micron are all good brands and fairly closely competitive pricewise. Jack E/NJ

    Just out of curiosity Ive taken the ram out to look at it and there’s nothing I can see on the ram or the board to tell me what kind of ram or the volatge or anything printed on it other than what I saw on the online scan. Someone told me I could look at the board and ram to figure it out

    If there's no label on the modules, which is unusual, you can download and try Brummyfan2's suggestion of freeware cpu-z which should give you the module details. https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/comment/713718/#Comment_713718
