Hi. I have a compaq computer and a Acer laptop. Their Ram’s are identical. However one of my laptops is fried and i want to switch the components. Is there any way it could fry the components that im switching?

Laptop memory and desktop memory are different styles and are not interchangeable even if they are the same speed.

Generally.

There are all in one designs and other manufacturer designs that use SO-DIMMs. If you are certain they are the same form factor, you can try the memory. If it works, great, if it doesn’t the machine won’t boot.
