Windows 7: Laptop DDR3 RAM compatibility

Laptop DDR3 RAM compatibility

Hey guys,

I was planning on getting two 4GB Corsair Vengeance sticks to upgrade the RAM in my laptop (link)
But after checking my laptops specifications online (link) I noticed it states that the maximum expandability of the RAM is 4GB...



Am I correct in assuming that I will only be able to fit one 4GB stick into my laptop? Or would I need two 2GB sticks? (Or could I just ignore it and jam two 4GB sticks in there?)

Thanks!

Hi,
You can use this free scanner to see if it offers a 8gb pack or a 4gb pack

But yea if there is only one slot it is 4gb max.

Hello Gamer mate it states the max RAM that machine will support so putting in 8GB I don't think will make any difference - if it lets work at all. If it were me I would just put in one stick 4GB because it does away with making sure that the two sticks are evenly matched (matched pair). Having said that two matched pair sticks will use the two channels in the machine.

If you want expert advice not that I doubt what we are stating here is not right but Tradesman at this site will tell you straight up Welcome to the G.SKILL TECH FORUM

Yep Mike I think the two slots are meant to be used as channels as far as I know anyway.

Yep my Acer board has a 2gb max per slot so that is as large as it can use even though it has a 8gb max ram so I couldn't use anything but 4x2gb pack for the maximum.
The laptop might have the same limit Crucial scanner might confirm that ?

Alright guys...so newegg just informed me that I won the following memory in a Facebook contest: Crucial Ballistix 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 with heat spreaders and built in thermal sensor The wording on the contest is vague, so I'm not sure if I'm getting 4 or 8GB of it. Right...
