    Please edit your answer and post only the first ten numbers of partnumber. This model supports up to 16gb ddr3L ram, see: https://www.acer.com/datasheets/2017/4876/2540/NX.EFHEK.010.html
    I suggest that you check your current memory configuration with cpuz.

    When I run it, it tells me DDR4 but other scanners tell me DDR3 which is also what came in it factory shipped.  It recognises more memory when scanned with CPU-Z but it's like the slot is disabled. That scan also tells me I have 2 slots when I HAVE 4 "1 OF 4 IN USE", is there a way to enable the slots? 
    Also I've looked in BIOS and it's basic is there an advanced BIOS trick maybe?

  • Can you enter the first ten numbers of part number?

    That seems to be the problem when I use that software it tells me I have DDR3 installed, crucial’s scan recommended DDR4 I bought what was in it only difference is voltage the new RAM is 1.5v the old 1.35v is there a way to enter a BIOS that's not limited like insyder v5.0. Also CPU-Z shows the RAM being recognized when the other slot has the new RAM in it. It's just not being allocated as usable memory or recognised in Windows
  • In fact, ddr4 memories use voltage 1.2v. Can you enter the ram model you purchased? I also suggest that you try to exchange it with the dealer.

  • This memory is not compatible with your model. In addition, it has XMP technology that is not supported by your model. You must replace it with a ddr3L memory.
