    How do I fit extra memory in my acer aspire z series

    If there is no Random Access Memory (RAM) compartment cover on the rear or underside of this computer, then, as is common with All-In-One (AIO) computers, a degree of disassembly is required in order to access the RAM Module slots internally.
    If so, unless you are experienced at the disassembly and internal repair or mopdification of AIOs, Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) or Light Emitting Diode (LED) Personal Computer (PC) Monitors and LCD or LED Televisions (TVs), my advice would be to take this computer in to have the RAM upgrade performed by an authorized Acer Service Center.
    The internal areas of AIOs, LCD, LED PC Monitors and LCD or LED TVs are u highly unsafe and inexperienced user-unfriendly working environments because such devices contain Electrolytic Capacitors (e-caps) that are storage devices capable of storing dangerous and even lethal charges, even when the device is completely disconnected from the mains electricity. Some capacitors can store charges as high as several tens of thousands of volts.

    The aim would be to remove the back panel.

    Often (but not always) with AIOs, LCD, LED PC Monitors and LCD or LED TVs, the key to removing the back cover lies in first unscrewing and removing the stand.

    Look out for hidden screws, particularly deep-set screws, some of which might even be completely obscured by a warranty sticker or other label, meaning that upgrading the RAM in this computer within its warranty period might invalidate the warranty unless the upgrade is performed by an authorized Acer Service Center.

    When the rear cover is removed (some additional internal panels might need to also be unscrewed/unclipped and removed), you should have access to the four RAM Module slots. Two slots should be free and the remaining two occupied, each containing a single (2048 Megabytes) otherwise referred to as 2 Gigabyte (Gb) RAM Module, because the standard RAM specification of this computer is 4Gb. The maximum specified RAM for this computer is 8Gb, meaning that either one or two 2Gb Modules can be added during a RAM upgrade.

    The specifications of the RAM Modules for this computer are:

    240 Pin 1.8v DDR3 PC3-1066 Non-ECC Dimm (240 contact elements, 1.8 volt, 1066 GigaHertz Oscillation Cycle Clock Speed, 3rd Generation Double Data Rate, Non Error Checking and Correction, Dual Inline Memory Module).

    Upgrade ram

    In order to upgrade the ram of your desktop. First you have to check the ram specifications. If wrong specifications the desktop will not work. To check you have to remove the ram from your desktop by removing the screws behind your desktop. Open the lid and you will see the contents of your desktop. Besides of your processor, there is ram installed. Unclip it. Then bring that ram to the computer shops. Purchase a ram higher than the ram installed in your desktop. Afterwards, install the new ram to your desktop. Good luck.

    I have a acer aspire t180 gb7z pc and i would like to know what is the maximum ram speed i can upgrade to

    You have 4 slots, capable of handling 4GB of memory but CAUTION: most machines come installed with 32 bit Windows OS. To maximize memory you must have 64 bit Windows OS. With 32 bit system, its probable that 1GB will be all your machine will handle.
