I have had my Acer aspire e 15 576g-5762 since late 2018. it has 8 gb Ram i5 processor and 256 ssd. Since it's been 2 years, it has started to slow down. I ended up buying a new stick of 8 gb ram, i did my research and found compatible ram. I popped ram in a few weeks ago and checked task manager, everything looked fine. Then suddenly it makes a LOUD grinding sound and the laptop freezes forcing me to hard reset. After trying that more than once, it had the same issue. I took it out and ordered new Ram assuming the first ram was defective.
Yesterday the new crucial ram stick arrived, i was excited for it to work. *Same problem* now i know it wasn't the ram, it's the laptop. I have no idea what the other could be. Any possible solutions would be greatly appreciated. I will post the ram sticks below that i have tried installing. I have no idea what to do here. I am considering buying a whole new laptop if i can't fix this. The laptop is FINE until i add the stick of ram. Then it loads up.. after a few minutes the grinding sound happens and everything locks up.
