Thanks for pointing out the specs. I forgot they were there.

I don't think that it is a problem:
  • It is easier to find the manufacturer's system information at Acer if we had the Serial Number ID (SNID)as searching by model doesn't provide the specs.
  • I normally just search using the part number. Kingston ACR256X64D3S1333C9 is available on many sites. "PC3-10700" is probably a typo and should be "PC3-10600".
  • 1.5V RAM can often run in a 1.35V socket. If it doesn't it then it usually doesn't make it through the POST. It is probably the shipped RAM anyway - see next comment.
  • The installed RAM module is above the specification supported by the CPU/GPU/motherboard. It is DDR3-1333 (PC3-10600) when it only needs to be DDR3-1066 or DDR3L-1066 (PC3-8500) as per CPUWorld and other specs I found. The variants are the 1.5V DDR3 and 1.35V DDR3L - the L means low voltage
