    Hi,
    It normally has 2 slots, could you please open the memory door at the back and check, some come with one module installed and the other one empty, some have come with 2x4GB installed, so it's hard to say unless you tell us about the current installation. If you have a warranty stick on the screws of the memory door, don't open it, run CPU-z free program, go to Memory tab and SPD tab, post the snip of them. Please read this thread:https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/549734/amount-of-ram-slots-in-acer-aspire-3-a315-41-r26w/p2

    Hi,
    If you move to memory tab, you'll find 6GB of total RAM in your laptop, Slot 1 has 2GB and Slot 2 has 4GB but Crucial says your model has only one slot available for upgrade, I think they have made a mistake.
    You can upgrade with a DDR4 2400 MHz SODIMM modules, depending on what you do 8GB is reasonably enough but if you want you can stretch to 16GB and that should be more than enough.

    Hi,
    You are welcome :)  you can upgrade up to 32GB but that's an overkill, that's why I suggested 16GB.
