Hello Joe,

Thank you for taking all the trouble!

Your laptop model isn't listed there either. I couldn't find anything for PC3-10700 RAM on Amazon either. For that matter, I couldn't find RAM for your laptop on Amazon.[*]What may be even more important is my research tells me your laptop should be using low voltage RAM (i.e. 1.35V), however, your Speccy report says your RAM is 1.5V. You shouldn't really use higher voltage RAM than specified.[*]I think your laptop may be capable of using faster RAM than what is installed. We already know you don't have much RAM but there's no reason why that RAM should be slower than specified.
This was bought in Canada from a reputed North American seller. It is registered with Acer and I had got in touch with them sometime ago using the credentials. I think the Speccy information may be wrong. I don't remember the name 'Kingston' when I last read the specifications at Acer website, some time back. Here is what you need to check on it:

Never been to a repair man.

Thank you for the reminder
