Once you select your manufacturer, product line and model as shown above, crucial system advisor will suggest you list of possible memory (RAM) upgrades for your laptop model. I chose the Crucial 16GB DDR4-2666 SODIMM because I need to go with the following specifications for my laptop.

  • SODIMM, Single DDR4 SDRAM
  • 2,666 MHz,CL19 latency
  • VOLTAGE 1.2V ,  PIN COUNT-260-pin

I would also suggest to check the speed in MHz of your 8GB RAM in Slot1 as shown below. Note, since I have already added 16GB RAM along with 8GB RAM in the laptop it shows slots used as 2 of 2. It is important that Form Factor (SODIMM), Speed, Voltage, Pin count (260 Pin) and Latency (CL19) should match.

Now, its time to open your Acer Aspire 7 laptop and install 16GB RAM along with 8GB RAM. You have 12 screws in this model laptop, unscrew all of them. And you might have to be little cautious while you remove the plastic after you unscrew, ensure you don’t break them. I would recommend you to use plastic knife or guitar striker.
