Can I Upgrade the GPU of my Acer Aspire 3 (A315-42)

I bought my Acer Aspire 3 (A315-42) last year. 

I was wondering if it will be VR ready if I upgrade the GPU and possibly the storage and ram also.

Or is the effort not worth it and just buy a higher spec laptop?

    Sorry the GPU is in the form of an integrated processor chip soldered to the mainboard and cannot be replaced. You can have up to two 16GB DDR4 sodimms  for a total of 32GB RAM. You should be able to add either an m.2 SSD or 2.5" HDD/SDD up to 2TB size with no issues or replace whatever SSD or HDD you have in there now for a bigger SSD or HDD. Jack E/NJ

    There are two RAM that fit DDR4 memory modules. Additionally, you are able to put a 2.5″ SATA drive as well as an SSD.

    Even after clicking on the yes option from the error box, it will not disappear. The error occurs with a file named “settingsynchost.exe.” Apart from that, you will have the error because of the current theme that you are using.

    The active theme is glitching, due to which you are facing a particular error. There are several windows 7,8 and 10 users who managed to solve the issue by changing the active theme and removing the leftover folders from your computer.
